Care Philosophy

Patients can benefit from a novel non-surgical procedure using their own stem cells. Stem cells can develop into nearly any tissue they come in contact with, utilizing the body's repair mechanisms and growth factors to promote healing. Stem Cell therapy can be successful for the right candidates. A typical procedure visit will take approximately 30 minutes. Dr Remia harvests stem cells form the bone marrow typically in the patient's posterior pelvic or iliac crest bone. The stem cells are then injected into the patient's damaged joint or tendon using ultrasound guidance. The risk of rejection is very low as the stems cells are from the patient's own body. Joints that are frequently treated with stem cell therapy include knees, hips, shoulders, ankles and some large hand joints. Patients can drive the same day and there is no significant recovery time. A second stem cell or (platelet rich plasma – PRP) injection is considered at 6 weeks, depending on symptoms.

A second stem cell or (platelet rich plasma – PRP) injection is considered at 6 weeks, depending on symptoms. Most patients only require one injection to feel improved. Approximately 80% of patients experience improvement; of these patients, many may avoid surgery altogether. Since the FDA considers stem cell therapy experimental, insurance typically does not cover the costs. If you have painful, arthritic joints or chronic tendinitis, and are interested in avoiding surgery, call Dr. Remia to see if you are a candidate for stem cell therapy.

Patient Reviews (3)
in Hyannis, MA |
Total knee replacements. Very satisfied with results. This survey does not include any items concerning technical expertise-- and it should--he is an extremely skilled orthopedic surgeon, the most important qualification.
in Eastham, MA |
Dr. Remia performed a Vision Scope on my knee, which resulted in IliaTibia Band Syndrome [tendonitis] which he refused to acknowledge before the arthroscopy that he also performed a week later, as well as, at the 6 week checkup. His PA, Karen made the diagnosis & changed the PT orders, which had been aggravating instead of helping. He might be a good surgeon, but his arrogance caused weeks of unnecessary discomfort. Have since found 3 other people who had similar results from his Vision Scope
Brewster, MA |
Very disappointed. Paid to see a specialist and never saw the Dr. Was informed for this appointment and the next (which I changed) that the Dr was not even scheduled to arrive until later. Became dizzy with medicine prescribed and fell several times in 2 days. Previous experience with Dr. Affonso in this group was excellent and hope to be seen by him in the future. I do not believe that a Dr. or group should be scheduling appt when I have no access to him.
