Stem Cells are immature cells that have not yet fully differentiated into specific cell types. This allows them to differentiate into a variety of different cell types, including bone, muscle, and nerve cells. This property makes stem cells an attractive option for medical treatments, as they can be used to repair or replace damaged tissues in the body.
Stem Cell Therapy is a type of medical treatment that utilizes stem cells to repair and regenerate damaged tissues in the body. This therapy has the potential to provide long-lasting relief from a range of conditions and symptoms, including pain, inflammation, and chronic injuries.
Stem cells are special cells that have the ability to differentiate into a wide range of different cell types, including bone, muscle, and nerve cells. This makes them useful in the field of medicine for repairing or replacing damaged tissues.
The therapy can be performed by harvesting stem cells from either the patient's bone or fat tissue, or from the umbilical cord/placenta during a viable c-section birth. The harvested stem cells are then injected into the damaged tissues to help repair and regenerate the affected area.
At Our Clinic, we have decided not to offer Stem Cell Therapy at this time due to its high cost and the potential for discomfort during the harvesting process. Stem Cell Therapy is considered a highly aggressive form of Regenerative Medicine but it is also the most expensive. Most patients seeking regenerative medicine will respond favorably to PRP therapy, at a fraction of the price, without having to consider the more expensive option of doing stem cell therapy. However, if all attempts to repair the tissues naturally using PRP therapy have been exhausted then Stem Cell Therapy is a good “final option” before considering an invasive, risky procedure like surgery.
