Stem cells may be extracted from different parts of your body, including the bone marrow, fat, and blood. Stem cell therapy involves re-introducing these harvested cells into your body. These unique cells may be isolated from your bone marrow or fat, can potentially become different cell types. They are capable of regenerating and repairing damaged tissue, and also secrete therapeutic proteins and peptides that stimulate healing of damaged tissue.
What Are the Issues With Stem Cell Therapy?
The drawback of this type of therapy is that the harvesting procedure can be invasive and opens you up to the risk of developing adverse effects. For example, to harvest the cells from your bone marrow means that a hole has to be drilled into your pelvis and a large needle used to extract the bone marrow. Another drawback is that depending on your general health, the cells harvested from your body might not be as effective as other forms of stem cells.
Enter Wharton’s jelly mesenchymal stem cells derived from birth tissue. These are adult cells that provide a safe non-surgical alternative that circumvents the controversy surrounding the harvesting of embryonic stem cells.
For ethical and legal reasons, our clinic does not work with embryonic stem cells. These treatments containing mesenchymal cells have several advantages over traditional stem cell therapy. Birth tissue is donated for use in regenerative medicine with the informed consent of the donors. All donors provide consent and are screened per FDA/AATB guidelines. This donor material is obtained during scheduled c-sections. They offer powerful and safe options for treating health disorders related to muscle, cartilage, tendon, and soft tissue.
Treatments Containing Regenerative Cellular Tissue
Injections containing stem cells and growth factors can be used to treat multiple disorders. These procedures help promote the repair and regeneration of soft tissue, intra-articular injuries, cartilage, menisci, and joint injuries. You can typically return to work the same day. Your physician will instruct you on any restrictions based on your specific injury.
These treatments are suitable for addressing:
- Knee pain
- Back pain
- Shoulder pain
- Elbow pain
- Hip pain
- Joint pain
At our medical center, we provide personalized cell therapy, this meaning we understand, although you may have the same symptoms as another person. Factors such as your health condition, lifestyle, nutrition, deterioration, and side effects of previous treatments are considered when our doctors design your protocol for regenerative cellular therapy to ensure the best results possible.
