Stem Cell Therapy

The Gold Standard of Regenerative Medicine

Stem cell injection therapy is known as the gold standard of regenerative medicine due to the greater concentration of cells that proliferate the treatment site. As such, stem cell therapy provides quicker renewal and repair response times.

What are stem cells?

Stem cells are naturally occurring cells in the body that help create new cells in healthy tissue. As such, they help repair damaged tissue. One distinguishing factor is that unlike other cells, have the ability to self-renew, and adapt to the special type of cell needed, such as heart, liver, bone, nerve, cartilage, etc.

What are the benefits of human umbilical cord stem cell Injections?

Human umbilical cord stem cell tissue contains a high concentration of stem cells. This treatment accelerates healing and provides faster pain relief from joint or soft tissue injuries. The human umbilical cord stem cell solution is antimicrobial and all natural. As an out-patient procedure, human umbilical stem cell injections are easy to apply.

Where do the human umbilical cord stem cells come from?

Mothers who have newborn births agree to donate their umbilical cord for medical use. The human umbilical cord stem cells are frozen and broken into very fine pieces and processed into a liquid which can be injected safely into the human body.

What conditions benefit from human umbilical cord stem cell injection therapy?

Stem cell therapy is beneficial in treating:

  • Achilles Tendinitis & Tears
  • Ankle Pain / Sprains & Instability
  • Arthritis – Rheumatoid & Osteo
  • Bursitis
  • Foot Pain / Plantar Fasciitis

Comparison of Human Umbilical Stem Cell Therapy to Surgical Intervention

The Magic of Interventional Regenerative Medicine

Today we have many treatment options for the treatment of musculoskeletal problems such as Osteoarthritis, muscle, ligament, and tendon strains, sprains, and tears.

The gold standard of regenerative medicine is stem cell therapy. There are three basic types of stem cells. 1) Our own stems cells found in the abdomen and bone marrow. 2) Human Umbilical Cord Stem Cells.

When we are born, we have an enormous number of stem cells. The reason is because they are needed to flood the baby’s body building organs and tissues of all types. As we age, we have fewer of these cells thus we have a more difficult time rebounding from stresses and injury. When we become teenagers we have only 90% as many stem cells as we originally did. As we reach our fifties we have ½ as many stem cells as a teenager.

Taking stem cells from the abdomen (liposuction) or the bone marrow usually from the hip area are very invasive procedures. They can be painful in their own way and don’t have as high of a number or quality cells.

There are no ethical concerns with Human Umbilical Cord Stem Cells. (We are making health-enhancing use of what would otherwise be medical waste). All of the cells are taken from new born infant umbilical cords. They are carefully tested and monitored by government standards.

It is important that physicians who administer the stem cell procedure are trained and experienced. At the Knee Institute & Regenerative Medicine our clinical medical physician has ten years experience as a chiropractor and almost twenty years as a board certified Physical Medicine & Pain Specialist. He attends medical conferences regularly looking for new and advanced treatment options.

Using real time imaging should be mandatory when injecting stem cells. Ultrasound is utilized at The Knee Institute & Regenerative Medicine Clinic. This eliminates injecting in the wrong space blindly therefore better outcomes are produced.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is administrated along with Stem Cell, thus enhancing more positive outcomes.

Stem Cell Therapy is currently not covered by insurance. A side by side cost comparison of a knee replacement surgery (TKA) to Human Umbilical Cord Stem Cell (HUCSC) is as follows:

TKA-lab work required Stem Cell Therapy-not necessary
TKA-hospitalization required Stem Cell Therapy- in Office
TKA-surgery 1-2 hours Stem Cell Therapy 5-10 minutes
TKA- removal of Knee joint Stem Cell Therapy injection into knee
TKA- requires IV/home pain medication Stem Cell Therapy mild to moderate pain
TKA- outpatient to one night in hospital Stem Cell Therapy not necessary
TKA-use of walker than cane
no driving for 6 weeks
Stem Cell Therapy-light activity for 2 weeks
able to drive immediately
TKA-4-8 weeks off depending on job Stem Cell Therapy-not necessary
TKA-recovery time about 3months Stem Cell Therapy- results in about 2 weeks
TKA- out of pocket costs-
depends on insurance coverage
Stem Cell Therapy-$6,500.00 with PRP
up to $6,000.00 to $10,000.00
Stem Cell Therapy-not necessary

While this comparison is for illustrative purposes only, it is easy to see the advantage of Stem Cell Therapy. Out of pocket expenses may be a little more or less than the Stem Cell Therapy. At The Knee Institute & Regenerative Medicine we have payment plans available as well as 0% interest for 18 months.
