Stem Cell Therapy
Stem Cell Therapy is the use of stem cells to treat or prevent a disease or condition.
Frequently Asked Questions
Answers to our most frequently asked questions.
Stem cells are fundamentally the building blocks of life and have the potential to differentiate into many different types of cells within the body. Stem cells are actively involved in repairing, regenerating, and rebuilding damaged or absent tissue in the body that has been affected by disease, infection, or injury.
Receptors on stem cells allow them to migrate to areas that need healing and effect change in that area, potentially becoming new cells in the area and create new tissue to help improve functionality. They secrete chemicals which activate and attract your body’s native stem cells to initial tissue regeneration. There are numerous scientific evidence that show amazing reparative potential of these cells.
In the beginning of life, there is a stem cell. The origin of an organism's life. Stem Cells are the basic building blocks of every tissue and organ in the body. Umbilical cord is made up of tissue that contains blood. Both cord blood and cord tissue are rich sources of stem cells. Cord blood and cord tissue can be easily collected (otherwise thrown away) immediately after the healthy baby is born without risk or pain to the mother or baby. They are then transported and sorted through a lab to obtain the highest quality cells. After the sorting and quality assurance process they are then frozen at -80°C. Frozen at age zero, these cells are in top condition. They are uncorrupted by viruses, UV rays, untainted by alcohol, tobacco and other harmful substances. Making these stem cells safe and effective for healing and repair.
Adult Stem Cells
Stem cells derived from your own fat or bone marrow are aged stem cells.
They do not have the capacity to differentiate into the organs of the various repair functions that we want. These cells are very scarce and they are in small numbers. In bone marrow and fat we do find stem cells but their aged stem cells, not as potent and they do not occur in sufficient amounts to do the repair process that we prefer.
After numerous clinical trials and thousands of stem cell treatments worldwide, stem cell therapy has been proven to be safe and an effective tool for tissue regeneration. Umbilical cord stem cells are extensively tested and in our experience, after treating many thousands of patients for years, we have never seen a serious, adverse event.
Currently, no stem cell procedures within the United States are FDA approved nor is it covered by insurance carriers.
While stem cell therapy may be appropriate for certain conditions, it is not applicable for every condition. However, it has proven to be a viable option for several individuals seeking wellness, anti-aging and longevity or suffering from pain and discomfort. Your physician may ask for a history of your injury and a physical examination along with any X- rays, MRI, or other imaging.
To find out if you are a candidate for a stem cell procedure, please fill out the initial contact form or give us a call (404) 780-5617. We will set you up with a complimentary 15 minute consultation to discuss your case to determine your eligibility.
Stem cells can be administered to the patient through a variety of different methods depending on the treatment required for the patient's physical condition. Patients may need 1 to 3 procedures. This will be discussed in detail with each individual patient during their consultation with the physician.
The safest and simplest method for delivering the stem cell throughout the body.
The stem cells are injected directly into the muscle.
The stem cells are injected directly into the affected joint. This method is commonly used for arthritis.
Stem Cells can unlock an almost limitless array of healing powers. All of our patients have experienced amazing results. Depending on the nature of the injury and/or progression of a condition, every patient’s journey to recovery is different. Regenerative medicine can be a great and effective alternative to surgery. Stem Cells combat inflammation and help trigger a healing rejuvenating response within the body. Many of our patients report seeing results in as little as 3 weeks. However, some improvements may take around 2-12 weeks after the initial treatment with continued healing for up to 12 months.
Birth tissue allografts are derived from healthy, consenting mothers after full-term, live, planned, Cesarean section (C-section) deliveries. Donors are physically healthy women who are thoroughly screened for risk factors and clinical evidence of relevant communicable diseases. A careful medical, genetic and social history is collected in advance to ensure the donor meets all eligibility requirements.
MSC exosomes are lipid lined nano vesicles that contain genetic material, growth factors, mitochondria and various proteins. Exosomes are how cells communicate. They are approximately 1000 times smaller than the mesenchymal stem cells from which they are derived. Exosomes play a vital role in the rejuvenation of all the cells in our body and trigger healing responses so they are highly considerable for orthopedic issues, auto-immune disorders and anti-aging.
Stem cell therapy can be highly effective for treating joint pain or injury in the knees, shoulder, hip, elbow, neck and spine. It is non-invasive and mostly pain free. Nevertheless, it is common for patients to notice a positive treatment outcome in only few weeks. A reduction in pain, inflammation, improvement in range of motion, and joint repair are some of the benefits of one stem cell treatment. In some cases, this form of regenerative therapy can slow down the progression of a degenerative condition and potentially eliminate the need for harsh surgeries.
The most important part of any stem cell therapy is adhering to your pre and post-procedure guidelines. (Which will be discussed in detail before and after your procedure). Good healing during the first two months after the procedure will give you the best chance for success. The cells are fragile, and you need to be cautious that there isn't an overload on the newly treated joint.
Stem Cells have the ability to regenerate and regrow cartilage. As well as combat inflammation and reverse damage. Because of this reason, there is a very high success rate in repairing knee injuries. Depending on the individual patient and the severity of their condition, it can take anywhere from 3 to 12 weeks to see results.
The key word in Autoimmune disorders is “inflammation." Stem Cells are anti-inflammatory by nature and by using them in high concentrations intravenously, you may be able to lower the inflammatory response throughout the body. Stem cells can differentiate into whatever type of cell our body needs. MSCs from young, day-old stem cells rejuvenate the older cells and assist in calming an overactive immune system or modulating it to respond in a coordinated, aligned, effective manner.
There is minimal preparation needed for most of our stem cell procedures. During your consultation our expert physician will tailor a plan specific to your needs for your personal health and recovery.
Procedures typically take about 1 hour from start to finish. We make sure you are relaxed and comfortable throughout your visit with us.
There may be some minimal downtime after a stem cell procedure. Our Stem cell patients can comfortably walk out on their own and can typically return to work and daily activities within a couple of days. Post-treatment guidelines will be covered during your visit with us.
Depending on the individual patient and their condition that is being treated, most patients will experience long term relief lasting several years and can even halt the progression completely or reverse injury. However, progressive conditions such as MS, ALS, Parkinson's, etc. may experience relief for long periods of time and then may relapse months to years later as the condition may progress.
We know regenerative therapies can be expensive. That is why we offer the best pricing and procedure options to our patients. If you would like more information we can send you a brochure with our current treatment costs. You can simply request one via email at [email protected] or by giving us a call (404) 780-5617.
Since insurance does not currently cover regenerative medicine procedures. Here at Springs Rejuvenation we are excited to offer a flexible option for patient financing!
