The recent development of highly sophisticated technology and instrumentation for preparing autologous Adult Stem Cells (ASCs) at the operative Point-of-Care has created a new therapeutic option for the surgeon and patient. The FDA does not restrict how a patient’s own cells can be used as long as they are prepared and re-implanted into the patient as part of a continuous surgical procedure. The stem cells used by the surgeons can be placed in existing bone grafts to produce predictable and extremely good quality bone in the areas of grafting.
The surgeons at Piney Point Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in Houston, TX, have multiple ways of addressing bone defects in the jaw, especially in areas where dental implants need to be placed. Studies show that not only quantity but also quality of bone are key to successful outcomes with dental implants. Therefore, using stem cells, our surgeons are able to overcome large defects of the jaw as well as treat areas that are prone to slow healing, such as mal-unions, or sites of previous infections and/or surgeries.
Dr. Thomas Weil and Dr. Steve Koo are committed to providing patients at Piney Point Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery with the ultimate technologies in the most efficient and cost effective way possible. Our Houston surgery office also serves patients from Sugarland, Stafford, West University, Midtown, Tanglewood, Memorial, West Houston, Meyerland, Bellaire, Lamar Terrace, Galleria, Briargrove, Rice Military, Heights, Bunker Hill Village, Hunters Creek Village, Hedwig Village, and Katy, TX.
