Stem Cell Therapy
What is Stem Cell Therapy? Stem cell therapy refers to a regenerative medicine treatment using stem cells harvested from your own body. Stem cell therapy can also use stem cells donated from your close family members. At our medical clinic we do not use this type of therapy as treatment. Instead, we utilize regenerative cells that are collected from the Wharton’s Jelly of donated umbilical cord tissue, as well as exosomes, cytokines, growth factors, proteins and other elements that encourage fast and efficient healing.
We choose these sources because the cells are much younger, highly effective at regenerating damaged tissue, and the process is not harmful to the donor or the patient.

What To Know When Considering Stem Cell Therapy
If you are considering stem cell therapy to help treat your painful condition, it’s a good idea to educate yourself on the different types available on the market. The two most common are adipose tissue stem cell therapy and bone marrow stem cell therapy. Our regenerative treatments cannot technically be called stem cell therapy.
Adipose tissue is another word for fat tissue, and one of the issues with this treatment is that toxins are often stored in your fatty tissue, which could find their way into the injections. If you opt for collecting stem cells from your bone marrow, it’s important to note that the process is extremely invasive and painful and that there is a chance for infection.
With both of these therapies, the cells collected have aged right along with you, and many of the healing properties in your cells have diminished. This is why it takes longer for us to heal as we get older.
Wharton’s Jelly Cell Treatments
The cells we collect for our treatments are derived from the Wharton’s Jelly of donated umbilical cords. These young cells still have a full complement of cytokines, exosomes, growth factors, proteins and other elements that encourage fast and efficient healing.
During the collection process, the mother and baby are unharmed and the tissue would have otherwise been discarded. The mother is screened for social history and health after consenting to donate the tissue to ensure we get the highest quality cells for treatment.
And since these cells are still so young, they haven’t had time to develop their own immune system so the chances of rejection are virtually non-existent.
Treatments Containing Mesenchymal Cells For Pain
When regenerative cells are injected directly into your damaged or degraded tissue, they begin repairing and rejuvenating the underlying tissue to facilitate healing. They also communicate with your cells to boost your body’s own natural healing mechanisms. The result of this activity is natural pain relief with little downtime and without the need for medication or any invasive procedures.
If you have weighed the pros and cons and decided that stem cell therapy is not the road you want to take to relieve your pain, our regenerative treatments are a reliable alternative.
