What is cell therapy?
Cell therapy is the infusion, injection or transplantation of whole cells back into a patient for treatment of a condition. In autologous therapy the patient is the source (donor) of their own therapy. With the patient acting as their own donor, the risk of rejection and the use of immunosuppressive therapy is minimized.
How does autologous cell therapy work?
The goal of cell therapy is to repair or restore damaged tissues using cells. For our therapies, tissue from the patient is collected by a qualified and trained surgeon, and then processed and expanded by Vericel into a specific cell type or multicellular therapy. The patient’s own cells are then returned to the surgeon for implantation.

HELPING COACHES DO THE RIGHT THING
Injuries in youth sports are bound to happen. About 5.5 million injuries require medical care for young athletes each year in the U.S.
The problem is that many coaches are not properly trained to make the right decision on the field. The result is that each year up to 2 million young athletes are sent back in to play before they are ready, turning a mild injury into something that can result in weeks or months of lost playing time.
In my own sports medicine practice I’m likely to see one injury each week that could have been much less severe if the athlete did not prematurely return to play.
I created Sideline Sports Doc as a resource for coaches and parents, so they can help their young athletes avoid unnecessary injury.
