Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cell therapy refers to treatments that utilize stem cells from your own body or stem cells from a close family member. Typically, stem cells are collected from either adipose tissue or bone marrow and then injected into the area of need. At our medical clinic, we do not offer stem cell therapy for pain relief due to the many adverse side effects and complications that often come along with these types of treatments.

Instead, we use treatments that contain Wharton's jelly-derived regenerative tissue. It’s always a good idea to do proper research before deciding on a treatment plan. You can find out more about the regenerative treatments we offer by scheduling a free consultation.
Know All Your Options Before a Stem Cell Treatment
Before you make the decision to go ahead with stem cell therapy, take the time to learn more about these treatments and other options that are available to you. Our doctors don’t do adipose stem cell therapy or bone marrow stem cell therapy due the risks involved in each one of these treatments.
When stem cells are extracted from your adipose tissue, which is fat tissue, there is a possibility of toxins being in the treatment that’s intended to relieve your pain. Your fat cells store toxins within the tissue, and they don’t get removed when the cells are collected for treatment. Also, selecting cells that are the same age as you means that they have likely lost a good deal of their healing capabilities, which is why we tend to heal more slowly as we age.
With bone marrow stem cell therapy, the age of the cells is still a factor in their effectiveness, but there is also the invasive nature of the procedure to consider. To extract the cells, the bone must be drilled into, which causes a great deal of pain and opens you up to the risk of infection. Plus, there is a possibility of the stem cells providing assistance to the new wound instead of the original site of the injury or condition.
Regenerative Medicine as a Non-Surgical Solution for Pain
Our doctors prefer regenerative medicine treatments containing growth factors that have been collected from donated umbilical cord tissue. The umbilical cords are willingly donated after a healthy C-section birth, and neither the mother nor baby are affected in any way during the tissue collection. This tissue is young and loaded with healing components that are still at their full power.
Some of the healing properties include:
- Growth factors
- Hyaluronic acid
- Amino acids
These treatments are minimally invasive, and most patients experience very little discomfort if any. Most of the time, you are in and out quickly, and the fact that the tissue is so young and has yet to form its own immune system means the chances of rejection are almost non-existent.
