Wiener Bezirksblatt: Stem Cell Therapy for Joint Problems

Driving the Car Again

Ottilie Ebner suffered from pain in the wrist for a long time. For decades she had worked as a nurse. In her job she has put too much stress on her hands. Everyday life became a problem.

Writing. In search of a suitable therapy, she consulted the Viennese doctor DDr. Karl-Georg Heinrich. “Ms. Ebner could not even write anymore,” says the doctor. He proposed a stem cell treatment to Ottilie Ebner. In the course of the treatment a small amount of the patient’s fat was harvested. The so-called mesenchymal stem cells contained therein were then injected in the area of the affected wrist. A few weeks later, the hand was free of pain. “Today, the patient is able to write again and drive a car,” says DDr. Heinrich.

Free of pain. Mrs. Ebner underwent treatment of the pain in her wrist by Dr. Heinrich. Heinrich. Stem cell therapy helped.

Wear and tear. “Pain is often a sign of wear or inflammation of the joint. Exercise, such as sports, can further damage affected joints,” the doctor explains. “In addition to protection, the treatment of the joint problem is the first priority.”
