provides cutting-edge stem cell treatment
LAKELAND, FLORIDA – Novus Spine & Pain Center’s Dr. Benito Torres, located in Lakeland, Florida, has joined BioCellular Therapies, which provides cutting-edge stem cell treatment to help individuals stymied by orthopedic and spinal problems.
Novus Spine & Pain Center, located at 615 Midflorida Drive, Suite 1, in Lakeland, Florida, was established by Dr. Torres to provide the highest quality pain management care to patients.
“Using a comprehensive approach and cutting edge therapies, we work together to restore your function and regain your active lifestyle while minimizing the need for opiates,” said Dr. Torres.
Joint and spinal pain often requires complex surgery and long rehabilitative periods, and results may be inconsistent.
BioCellular Therapies offers a very viable alternative with no down time for patients suffering from sports injuries, osteoarthritis or degenerative disc disease. The treatment design is to reverse the disease or injury.
“These are the body’s own healing cells,” said Dr. Torres, referring to the super cells that are the keystone of BioCellular Therapies’ treatment.

OPTIMUM HEALING CAPACITY
Millions of people each year subject themselves to painful back and joint surgery, yet there is another option, and it resides right in their very own bodies. Regenerative cells are the healers of the body’s population of cells, for they can promote healing, repairing muscle, tendon, ligament and cartilage.
For optimum healing capacity, BioCellular Therapies uses cells from the patient’s own bone marrow and partners them with donor-generated amniotic tissue.
“These cells, are the body’s own natural healing cells,” said Dr. Torres. “This is a super high growth therapy that comes into contact with your own cells and helps re-energize them.”
Amniotic tissue is only part of the picture. Cells from the patient’s own bone marrow are another critical component.
To harvest bone marrow, the surgeon removes cells from the patient’s bones, typically at the hip or shin – two of the cell-richest and easiest locations – through a minimally invasive procedure that utilizes a small catheter inserted into a tiny incision to collect the cell specimens.
Once they arrive at the injured tissue, regenerative cells assume the characteristics of that host tissue to initiate its healing.
Because the more cells the better, BioCellular Therapies uses proven methods that deliver the maximum benefit of these cells to the injured tissue, thus accelerating the healing process.
The treatment’s beauty is not just its efficacy, but its simplicity. Bone marrow aspiration takes less than half an hour and adult stem cell injections about 10 to 15 minutes. Two or three days later, there is normally neither pain nor residual swelling at the injection site.
Dr. Torres completed his residency in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the University of Toledo followed by an ACGME accredited 2-year Pain Medicine Fellowship at the University of South Florida.
He is Board certified in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and Pain Medicine through the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. Following completion of his training, Dr. Torres accepted a position as faculty in the Department of Anesthesia at Moffitt Cancer Center providing pain relief through minimally invasive procedures.
He also received an Academic appointment as a clinical assistant professor in the department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the University of South Florida and Department of Neurology where he worked directly with the education of Residents and medical students and Pain medicine fellows.

The wide scope of BioCellular Therapies’ patient demographics is due to the nature of the treatment that is attractive to anyone whose quality of life has suffered because of pain from osteoarthritis, degenerative disc disease and sports-related injuries.
The treatment is easy, pain-free, without down time and yet with almost immediate results. Why wouldn’t anyone not want it?
The concept behind the science of regenerative medicine – also known as stem cell therapy – is the human body’s own ability to make things right for itself.
“Our bodies can self-heal,” said Torres. “Controlling the command center of the healing process produces optimal conditions for the body to self-heal.”
The treatment consists of painlessly harvesting cells from the patient’s own bone marrow, typically from the hip or shin, pairing these cells with an organic catalyst for an additional regenerative punch and injecting these super-cells back into the patient.
Once in position at the injured tissue, the powerful cell conglomerate gets to work in earnest to get things back to the way they once were. Regenerative cells, undifferentiated cells found in bone marrow, turn into other types of cells to become “repair” cells that promote healing, be it in the bone, muscle, cartilage ligament and tendons.
Upon arrival at the injured tissue, these regenerative cells assume the characteristics of the host tissue. These cells are hard, fast workers indeed, and it doesn’t take long for patients to experience their handiwork.
“A lot of patients see improvement right away,” said Dr. Torres.
