Stem Cell Therapy Q & A

What is stem cell therapy?

Stem cell therapy is an innovative type of regenerative medicine that uses stem cells to help your body heal damaged or injured tissue. Stem cells are the raw materials your body uses to repair itself and create new cells. 

The physicians at Integrity Center For Regenerative Medicine offer Rheo™ amniotic stem cells and adipose tissue (autologous) stem cells. 

Amniotic stem cells

Amniotic stem cells are donated from the amniotic fluids and placentas of healthy, full-term babies. They’re frozen to preserve their ability to develop, grow, and repair tissue. Amniotic stem cells are also rich in other growth factors and proteins that stimulate cellular repair and reduce inflammation. 

Adipose stem cells

Adipose stem cells are usually harvested from your body. Your fat tissue not only has abundant mesenchymal stem cells, but they’re easily collected and separated from the rest of your fatty tissue. When injected into your body, adipose cells hone in on areas of inflammation and injury and release massive levels of bioactive agents to boost tissue repair. 

 

What conditions might improve with stem cell therapy?

Medical researchers are still studying stem cells and are identifying new applications all the time. Some of the conditions that might benefit from stem cell therapy include:

  • Arthritis
  • Tendinitis
  • Muscle tears and strains
  • Ligament injuries
  • Herniated discs
  • Fractures

The doctors at Integrity Center For Regenerative Medicine create customized treatment plans that incorporate stem cell therapy. If you have a painful injury or condition, schedule an appointment to learn more about stem cells and if they’re right for you.

 

What should I expect during stem cell therapy?

When you have stem cell therapy, your physician prepares and delivers your injection. After preparing your stem cells, whether harvested from your own body or a donor, they give you a local anesthetic at your injection site. Then, using fluoroscopy X-rays or ultrasound guidance to guide the needle into the correct position in your body, they inject the stem cells. 

Stem cell therapy is minimally invasive, and you don’t need a long recovery time. You can usually get back to regular activities right away. You should start to notice a reduction in your pain and other symptoms within a few weeks of your treatment. In some cases, you might need a series of stem cell treatments to get the best results.
