Stem Cell Treatments in
Kansas City

Motus Biologics Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine in Kansas City is a sole proprietorship established by Dr. Leslie Michaud. Motus uses cutting-edge scientific advancements to offer minimally invasive stem cell treatments in Kansas City. Surgical intervention is not desirable or ideal for many patients. However, our nonsurgical stem cell treatment options provide a more natural and less risky approach to relief of symptoms. Applicable to many orthopedic conditions and patients, this innovative practice positions Motus as industry-leading in orthopedics.

How We’re Different

Traditional treatments, primarily surgery, carry significant barriers like recovery time and cost. Biologics offer an alternative solution.

motus

Uses the patient’s own stem cells and platelet-rich plasma to stimulate regrowth of tissues as opposed to traditional surgical methods that replace or remove the tissue.

Is significantly cheaper, far less risky, and requires meaningfully less recovery time.

Uses established, evidence-based techniques at half the price of the local biologics competitor.

Provides stem cell treatments in Kansas City to promote decreased physical, emotional, and financial cost from time off work and/or surgical recovery.

 

traditional

Knee replacement in the US costs $56-58K.

Joint replacement postoperative complications (heart attack, stroke, DVT, pulmonary embolism, infection, and bleeding) are at 1-5%.

Return to most normal activity from surgical interventions such as joint replacement is, on average, 3 months.

A recent study published in Orthopedics reported that up to 40% of patients complain of postoperative pain 1 year following TKA.

What is biologics?

Biologics is an emerging field of medicine that is currently being used to treat a myriad of conditions from neurologic to cardiac (myocardial tissue regrowth after a heart attack) to orthopedic conditions.

Motus Biologics Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine provides stem cell treatments in Kansas City using the individual’s own cells and changes their concentrations and locations to promote regeneration of various tissues. In the arena of orthopedics, there are three main sources of biologics – platelet-rich plasma (PRP), adipose (fat) grafting, and bone marrow concentrate (BMC).

 

PRP

PRP, or Platelet Rich Plasma, is obtained from your own blood. It works by recruiting the body’s own healing components to the area of disease. At Motus, we collect your blood and concentrate these growth factors.

Stem Cells

Stem cells are structures that can turn, or differentiate, into any type of cell in the body. At Motus, we harvest stem cells from the patient and concentrate them using a centrifuge (similar to PRP). We then use an ultrasound to guide the stem cells to the area in need of treatment.

Tenex

Tenex is a minimally invasive alternative to traditional surgical treatments for tendon and fascia conditions. The treatment was developed by the Mayo Clinic and is covered by most insurances.

testimonials

For years I had suffered with knee pain. I heard about Motus Biologics and Sports Medicine and made an appointment. This was the smartest thing I had ever done. I had the procedure on my knees and have had no pain since. If you are having knee pain contact Motus, you will be back to your self immediately. They explained every step, the procedure felt completely effortless and I was able to stand and walk pain-free immediately after. I can’t say enough about this – It is wonderful. By the way, I am 75 years old!
