About Stem Cells

Stem cells is a cell with the unique ability to develop into specialized cell types in the body. That’s why they are called totipotent cells.

They can generate blood vessels, muscle, tendons, cartilage, nerve cells, etc.  With this they are used to replace cells and tissues that have been damaged or lost due to disease.

Until recently, scientists worked with two types of stem cells from animals and humans embryonic stem cells and non-embryonic “somatic” or “adult” stem cells.

Scientists first learned how to derive embryonic stem cells from mouse embryos in 1981. By 1998, their studies discovered a method to derive stem cells from human embryos and grow them in a laboratory environment.

The benefits

These cells are called embryonic stem cells. The use of cells obtained from embryos created for in vitro fertilization ceased due to a whole host of moral questions.

In 2006 scientists discovered a way to “reprogram” adult stem cells into “induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs),” thereby bypassing moral issues associated with the use of embryonic stem cells. 

Stem cells are essential because in a 3 to 5 day-old embryo, called a blastocyst, the inner cells give rise to all the different organs and tissues of an adult body. 

The adult body has discrete amounts of stem cells in bone marrow, muscles, and the brain, that are there to replace cells lost through wear and tear, injury, or disease.

Stem cell research is one of the most fascinating areas of contemporary biology.

Stem cells are cells with the ability to develop into many different types of cells in the body. That is why they are also called “totipotent or pluripotent cells.”

There are two types of stem cells: embryonic and adult stem cells. 

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.
