WHAT IS REJENERATIVE MEDICINE
Rejenerative medicine is the use of stem cells to stimulate the natural ability of the body to rejuvenate and repair body parts and tissues damaged by age, trauma or deseases.
Rejenerative stem cell therapy restores the tissues to establish normal function since stem cells produced in the body is less responsive with age and does not repair damaged tissues.
WHAT KIND OF STEM CELLS ARE INVOLVED IN REGENERATIVE MEDICINE?’
Stem cells come from a variety of sources which include patient’s bone marrow, adipose(fat) & umbilical cord blood. Along with cord blood, Wharton’s jelly are the 2 main sources of mesenchymal (MSC) stem cells that are pluripotent which differentiate into any type of tissue.
These stem cells are preferred because of their fetal origin, they have a better capacity for proliferation.
WHAT TYPE OF CONDITIONS ARE CANDIDATES FOR STEM CELL (MSC) TREATMENT?
- Cerebral Palsy
- Cardiovascular conditions
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Spinal Cord Injury
- Autoimmune diseases
- Blood disorders
- Metabolic disorders
- Hearing loss
- Brain injury
- Ophthalmological disease and conditions
- Skeletal injury and disease
- Sports injuries (Cartiage, Ligaments, Joints)
- Health wellness and preventative care
- Candidates of all ages are welcome
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
Most patients experience significant improvement after a single treatment however each patient is different. Your physician was trained & given suggested protocol & will advise you the recommended dosage needed. This will also depend on your specific condition (s).
HOW MUCH DOES STEM CELL TREATMENT COST?
Treatment cost depends on the type of treatment required which will be discussed by your physician following your consultation and diagnosis.
HOW ARE THE STEM CELLS ADMINISTERED?
There are various forms of treatment in stem cell therapy. The simplest method is direct intra-articular injection administered by a licensed physician into the affected joint. Only local anesthesia required. Intravenous (IV) is also given & do not require anes. It is given for all others except joints conditions. Since aging process also occur in the largest organ of the body, the skin, stem cells can improve, renew and even help reverse the damage.
WHERE DO WE GET STEM CELLS FROM?
Umbilical Cords are donated by healthy mothers at the time of birth both by vaginal and cesarean deliveries. Umbilical Cords are transported to our private FDA approved distribuitor located in Mission viejo, California USA. Umbilical Cords are transported in dry sterile polyethylene canisters; Whereupon reaching the laboratory undergo cryopeserving for future clinical processing and extraction of the Mesenchymal stem cells.
DO I NEED A PRESCRIPTION TO GET STEM CELL THERAPY?
Most doctors who may want to inject the stem cells themselves to their patients do not give patients a prescription. Patients who are interested in getting the treatment may come for a consultation with our doctors who will explain the choices & explain the procedures. The doctors may also advise patients to get a medical grade cell enhancing cocktail of health promoting supplements given in IV form.
IS STEM CELL TREATMENT AN OUTPATIENT PROCEDURE?
Most treatments can be done in the doctors office. The other procedures like spine & angiogram treatments will be done in an outpatient surgical facility.
WILL INSURANCE COMPANIES COVER THE COST?
Insurance companies do not cover stem cells (MSC) at this time. Financing is now available both for personal injury & cash cases.
