What is Stem Cell Therapy? 2018-01-15T16:27:03+00:00

Stem Cell Therapy

Stem Cells have the miraculous potential to develop into many different cell types in the body during early life and growth. In addition, in many tissues they serve as a sort of internal repair system, dividing essentially without limit to replenish other cells as long as the person is still alive. When a stem cell divides, each new cell has the capability to remain a stem cell or become another type of cell with a more specialized function, such as a blood cells, brain cells, heart muscle or bone. In some organs, such as the gut and bone marrow, stem cells regularly divide to repair and replace worn out or damaged tissue.

Unfortunately, as we age most adult stem cell populations either decline in number and/or lose the ability to differentiate into functional tissue-specific cells. Stem Cell Therapy helps to overcome this problem by introducing a large quantity of regenerative factors to the injured tissue to substantially increase your body’s healing potential. The injection of stem cells and various other growth factors is believed to activate your body’s own stem cells to start healing the injured tissue. The stem cells may be harvested from the patient or from a donor. Once they have been safely extracted, they are concentrated and reinjected back into the body to rebuild properly functioning tissues.

Benefits of Stem Cell Treatment

  • No Rejection, as the stem cells are taken from your own body
  • Treats severe injuries and degeneration that cannot be repaired, such as degenerative disc disease
  • Promotoes natural healing of the damaged tissue
  • Effective theraputic alternative to surgery with little to no downtime
  • The treatment is not associated with the potential risk and complications of surgery

What are the Different Types of Stem Cells?

We use two different types of Stem Cell treatments. They differ in their harvesting location as well as their functions and abilities. When harvesting stem cells, many other healing substances are also collected.These include growth factors, growth hormones, cytokines, and proteins.

FAQ’s

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.
At Stem Cell Centers we currently treat patients with back pain, Spinal Disc problems, chronic joint pain, osteoarthritis, neuropathy, COPD plus many other conditions.
Yes, stem cells are immuno-privileged which means they will not cause an adverse reaction or rejection to the body. There are no known side effects!

The biggest difference is that this treatment can be “curative” in nature. 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 subjected 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 2 days after the procedure.

We work with people who are experiencing chronic pain on a daily basis and have treated thousands of patients. All of our treatment protocols are based on research that is proven to work. Stem Cell Centers also offers all 4 different types of stem cells so we can use the best one for your problem. We are not limited to just one type of Stem Cell like most other clinics. We are a network of some of the top doctors around the country, continuously sharing the knowledge we gain by treating many patients each day.

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

The great news is that our research shows that is never too late. 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 patients from 16 -102 years old and had the same great outcomes. Age does not seem to matter when it comes to stem cell therapy.

Healing can start as soon as you have had the treatment. It is not uncommon for patients to leave our office already feeling significantly better. The vast majority of healing happens within 6-9 months of the first treatment but research shows healing can continue for up to 2 years. On average our patients experience a 52% reduction in pain within the first two weeks of their treatment and continue to get better from there.

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

Call 800-518-9307 to get scheduled for a complimentary consultation for you and your spouse at the clinic closest to you. At this consultation you will learn all about how stem cell therapy works, what our results are and if your condition can be treated and we can accept you for care. We will also answer all of your questions at this consultation. If you are accepted for care, we can usually treat you on the same day.

Stem Cell Therapy: A Treatment for All Ages

Stem Cell Centers therapies can successfully treat conditions that are common in older generations. Stem cells and healing factors obtained from young people can be used to help patients of all ages. These treatments are done in the outpatient setting and most patients can resume normal work and activities in a few days. You are never too old for Stem Cell Centers treatments.
