Where do we obtain stem cells?
Adult stem cells can be isolated from the body in different ways, depending on the tissue.
Blood stem cells, for example, are harvested from bone marrow, from blood in the umbilical cord when a baby is born, and from a person’s circulating blood.
In our clinic, we use adult stem cells from the patient’s blood to treat specific areas of the body that may be compromised by trauma or disease.
We treat joints in general, like knees, shoulders, and backs. We also use stem cells to treat stress incontinence in women and erectile dysfunction in men.
The treatment is safe because we use the patient’s blood.
The procedures usually take about one hour or less. Depending on the area of the body undergoing treatment, the patient will not experience discomfort beyond a minor needle prick.
We rarely recommend more than one treatment. Usually, successful treatment is accomplished with a single appointment.
