Dr. Sylvain Simard MD and stem cell treatments
In March 2016, Health Canada approved Arthrex Canada Technology, the leader in the field of orthopedics and regenerative medicine. With the Angel device and bone marrow suction kit , Dr. Sylvain Simard is the first Canadian doctor to provide orthopedic treatment with autologous stem cells.
In more complex cases, fat transfer use may be indicated. This adds to PRP technology (platelet rich plasma), laser therapy and spinal decompression therapy, which confirms Dr. Sylvain Simard's role as a leader in regenerative medicine.
When necessary, Dr. Sylvain Simard uses an ultrasound and this procedure will be included in the treatment.
At Dr. Sylvain Simard's clinic, we are working with innovative methods for the treatment of orthopedic injuries using regenerative medicine treatments with stem cells, platelet rich plasma and transfer of adipose tissue.

The steps of the orthopedic treatment with stem cells
Aspiration of the bone marrow
The use of a specialized cannula in the aspiration of the bone marrow, which is pressed into a bone such as the posterior iliac spine (rear part of the pelvis), retrieve the marrow by suction using a syringe. The bone marrow is rich in autologous stem cells.
Separation of stem cells
The separation of stem cells from your bone marrow is done through a highly specialized centrifuge, called Angel from the Arthrex.
Injection of your stem cells (autologous) in your damaged joint
Once the stem cells are extracted from your bone marrow, we reinject them, with a syringe, directly into the joint that makes you suffer.
