Dr Mubark works exclusively on joints and the surrounding cartilage, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. He does not conduct stem cell therapy on the spine or IV therapy.

Anyone suffering pain and considering surgery for pain in these areas should contact Dr Mubark for an assessment to see if stem cell therapy can return them to enjoying the activities, work, and sports they love.

If you are suffering from any of the following specific conditions, Dr Mubark may be able to help.

Knee osteoarthritis (OA)

Knee OA is a degenerative condition, “wear-and-tear” that occurs most often with ageing but may occur in younger people especially when there is history of trauma.

In OA, the cartilage in the joint gradually wears away and become rough and the protective space between the bones reduces gradually, this can result in bone rubbing on bone, and produce pain, stiffness and reduce range of motion.

Hip osteoarthritis (OA)

Hip OA is a disease which wears away the cartilage between the femoral head (ball) and the acetabulum (socket), the cartilage becomes eroded and pitted with rough surface then the joint space becomes narrow, when this progresses it becomes bone -on-bone. The result is pain, stiffness, restricted movement, and limping.

Shoulder pain and main causes

Shoulder pain, stiffness and restriction of movement is commonly caused by either joint osteoarthritis or tendon (s) issue like tear or inflammation, the diagnosis can be determined sometimes by using advance radiologic imaging such as MRI scan.

Wrist arthritis

Is a degenerative joint disease in which the smooth cartilage that covers the bone surfaces at the joints either is injured or wears over time.

Hand osteoarthritis (OA)

The symptoms of hand OA differ from person to person. A lot depends on the specific joints affected or the common activities that the person does. commonly pains and aches when they use their hands, joint stiffness, which may be more pronounced in the morning, difficulty moving their fingers with a weak grip. Swelling and tenderness in the knuckles or around the wrist due to both bone enlargements and associated inflammation.

Elbow pain

It could be tendon issue like Tennis and Golfer elbow or related to joint/cartilage issue as in elbow joint osteoarthritis.

Tennis and Golfer elbow: is a painful condition that occurs when tendons in your elbow are overloaded, usually by repetitive motions of the wrist and arm.

Elbow joint osteoarthritis: it occurs when the cartilage surface of the elbow is worn out. This can happen because of a previous injury, or it is the result of a normal wearing away of the joint cartilage from age.

Ankle and Foot Osteoarthritis (OA)

Ankle OA may cause pain, stiffness and swelling, particularly after walking or exercises. OA often develops after remote history of sprain or fracture.

Sports injuries

We treat various sport injuries including upper limbs; shoulders, elbows, wrists, fingers, and lower limbs; hips, knees, ankles, and feet. Injuries can affect cartilage, meniscus, labrum, muscles, tendons, and ligaments.

Dr Mubark’s practice has excellent results. Out of hundreds of patients treated, he has documented an 80 percent rate of improved quality of life after stem cell therapy. As the only specialist in New Zealand specialising in stem cell therapy in hands and feet, Dr Mubark is leading the way in returning patients to work after debilitating injuries.
