Stem Cell Therapy

Our patients receive the most effective, safe, and advanced regenerative stem cell therapy available. Our unique umbilical cord stem cell therapy activates the body’s own self-healing mechanisms for cellular/tissue regeneration and repair.

  • Human umbilical cord blood stem cells contain mesenchymal stem cells and garner optimal regenerative results.
    Stem cell therapy is a safe option and does not require surgery. Patients recover faster and there is less potential for complications.
  • Results have proven to far exceed the common surgery-based autologous procedures.
    There are no negative side effects and the cells are undifferentiated, therefore the body does not reject them. Umbilical cord stem cells have been used for over thirty years to help reduce the chance of organ transplant rejection.

Umbilical Cord-Derived Stem Cells

Not all stem cells are created equal. Chronic Conditions Center utilizes umbilical cord-derived stem cells. Mesenchymal stem cells from the umbilical cord blood are known to have three very important properties: they help reduce inflammation, modulate the immune system and secrete factors that helps tissue to regenerate.

Umbilical cord stem cells are less mature than other cells, so the body’s immune system is unable to recognize them as foreign and there has never been a single instance rejection. Umbilical cord stem cells also proliferate more efficiently than older cells, such as those found in the bone marrow and therefore, they are considered to be more potent.

What Are Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSC’s)?

In scientific terms, they are multipotent stromal (connective tissue) cells that stimulates your body to differentiate them into a variety of cell types, including neurons, cartilage, fat, blood (red, white or platelet blood cells), bone, and muscle. Multipotent means they can develop into multiple types of cells, but divide a limited number of times (a built in safety mechanism). They are messengers that signal your body to activate self-healing and regeneration. The MSC’s themselves do not create new tissue or healing, they signal your body to activate a cascade of cellular functions. As we age, we have fewer mesenchymal stem cells, therefore getting a boost of day “0” MSC’s may help many conditions. Umbilical Cord Stem Cells contain a small, but significant amount of mesenchymal stem cells that signal self-healing and regeneration.

How Do They work?

Human umbilical cord stem cells have an innate intelligence and activate the body’s own self-healing mechanisms. They seek out inflammation and degenerations. In other words, they give your body a boost of fresh, “day 0”, very young stem cells to help with regeneration. Our stem cells age with us and we lose a significant percentage over time. That’s why as we age. our body does not recover at the same rate as it did when we were younger.

Safe and Regulated

Umbilical cord stem cells reside in the umbilical cords from healthy newborn babies and healthy mothers. Like all post-natal cells, they are categorized as “adult” stem cells. The umbilical cord tissue is donated by pre-screened and tested healthy mothers and healthy babies in the United States. We abide by the most stringent FDA and medical guidelines.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do we use HUC stem cells rather than autologous stem cells?

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

Are stem cells safe?

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!

Is there any transfer of DNA from the stem cell product into the receiving patient?

No, a process called cell fusion would be required and this process is not observed in multipotent mesenchymal stem cells.

Is donor and host tissue matching required?

Stem cells from another person (allogenic) cells are naive and are not recognized by the host immune system as foreign.

Are there contraindications to regenerative cellular therapy?

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

How do stem cells know where to go and what to grow?

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.

What is the difference between Stem Cell Therapy and other treatments such as replacements, joint resurfacing, etc?

The biggest difference is that this therapy can be “curative” in nature. Every other type of drug or treatment is “masking” the symptoms. The most obvious difference is safety of this therapy versus anything else.

  • You are not in a hospital subjected to “super germs”
  • There is no risky surgery being done or anesthesia.
  • There are 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.

How long do results last for?

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 therapy, 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…

At what point should a patient explore this option, and when is it too late?

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 to receive our therapy to get them out of the suffering and pain. We have helped patients from 18 -102 years old and had the same great outcomes. Age does not seem to matter when it comes to stem cell therapy.

How much does it cost and is it covered by health insurance?

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