Stem Cell FAQs

You are a collection of over 10 trillion human cells. Every cell in your body performs a specific function. Your brain cells assist in cognition, the cells in your lungs allow you to breath, the cells in your ligaments keep your joints securely intact.

Stem cells have the remarkable ability to “differentiate” into any other type of cell in the body. Once they receive the command, they go to work repairing damaged tissues, enhancing organ regrowth and eliminating inflammation. These stem cells reside everywhere: in our bone marrow, in our fat, and in every single tissue compartment.

Today we are seeing incredible results with stem cells in helping patients with chronic pain, COPD, alzheimers, nerve damage, heart disease, back pain, knee pain, diabetes, arthritis, spinal cord injuries, burns, macular degeneration, and much more.

Stem cells are being used to regenerate tissue and literally rebuild organs. Individuals who struggle with pain or chronic disease have found relief through stem cell therapy. We have also seen the reversal of chronic joint inflammation and degradation in arthritis.

How long does it take before I see results from the procedure?

In many cases relief is experienced within 2 to 3 weeks. Stem cells will continue to replicate for about 250 days so it could take up to 6 months before significant improvements are seen.


How much recovery time is needed?

Virtually zero. We ask that you take it easy for the first 2 – 8 weeks following your procedure so that you don’t disrupt the healing.


Is stem cell therapy safe?

Absolutely. The safest form of stem cell therapy that we’ve found is amniotic and umbilical tissue allograft and cord blood cells which have been used with zero side-effects in over 300,000 cases. These stem cells also contain growth factors, proteins and natural cytokines to insure the best possible healing response and safety.


Is stem cell treatment affordable and will my insurance cover it?

In relation to a total knee replacement or a disk fusion stem cell therapy is incredibly cost effective. Most stem cell treatments are 90% less than the cost of surgery. We can typically make stem cell therapy’s cost work with any budget. Unfortunately insurance companies will not cover most stem cell procedures but your HSA or FLEX spending accounts can be used.


How does it work?

Stem cells are beaming with life and are undifferentiated, meaning they do not have a signal to begin new growth in a tissue compartment. This means that if you have liver cells that are damaged the stem cells will seek out the damage and start repairing your liver. If you have a torn ligament and cartilage missing, the stem cells will go to work at laying down a new cellular matrix to repair the ligaments and regrow cartilage.


How do I qualify for the treatment?

One of our medical providers will assess your specific health goals and determine if stem cell therapy is right for you. If you are qualified for the procedure we can usually perform the treatment at your convenience.


How do I get started?

Simply call our clinic to set up an appointment and one of our talented medical providers will perform a health evaluation to see if you qualify for stem cell therapy.
