GENERAL QUESTIONS

Studies have shown that these cells work better.  Our cells in our body age as we age and younger cells can be more effective.

Umbilical cord stem cells are from the umbilical cords of healthy newborn babies and healthy mothers.  The umbilical cord tissue is donated by prescreened and tested healthy mothers and healthy babies in the United States.  We abide by the most stringent FDA and medical guidelines.

No, stem cells from another person (allogenic) cells are naive and are not recognized by the host immune system as foreign.

When our tissue is damaged it gives off things called Cytokines. Cytokines act like little beacons to attract the stem cells to that tissue.  In fact, we have heard of numerous instances when a patient has a Stem Cell procedure done and another area of their body also heals.

If the root cause is addressed, your healing should be long term. Stem cell therapy is still a fairly new treatment and research shows that results can last up to and beyond seven years. There are many variables that determine how long the results of a stem cell injection will last for. Results also depend on a variety of factors including, diet, exercise, lifestyle choices, etc.

Cost depends on a patient’s specific problem, the number of joints/problems treated, and the amount of stem cells needed.  Unfortunately, insurance does not cover Stem Cell Therapy at this time.

Yes, stem cells are immune-privileged which means that they will not cause an adverse reaction or rejection to the body.  There are no known side effects.

Yes, patient should not have any active form of cancer.

The biggest difference is that this treatment encourages the body to heal itself. Every other type of drug or treatment is “masking” the symptoms. The most obvious difference is safety of this treatment versus anything else. You are not in a hospital subject to “super germs.” There is no risky surgery being done or anesthesia. There is no six weeks of bed rest or “light duty”. Our procedure takes less than a half hour and is done in our clinic. Note: It is recommended that you take it easy for 3 days after the procedure.

Most chronic pain conditions slowly get worse over time, not better.  For this reason, we encourage patients not to continue to suffer and come and have their problem treated to get them out of the suffering and pain.  We have treated patient from 18-90 years old and had the same great outcomes.  Age does not seem to matter when it comes to stem cell therapy.

Arthritis, chronic pain, and injuries – knees, elbows, shoulders, ankles, feet, neck, and back.

Stem cells “from the umbilical cord …are readily available and an inexpensive source of cells that are capable of forming many different cell types.”
