Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to our most frequently asked questions.

What Are Stem Cells?

Stem cells are fundamentally the building blocks of life and have the potential to differentiate into many different types of cells within the body. There are several studies suggesting the potential for stem cell and exosome therapy to play a role in a variety of conditions.

Where Do Stem Cells Come From?

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.

Is Stem Cell Therapy FDA Approved Or Covered By Insurance?

Springs Rejuvenation and its affiliate treatment centers are not offering stem cell therapy as a cure for any condition, disease, or injury.  No statements or implied treatments on this website have been evaluated or approved by the FDA.  This website contains no medical advice.  All statements and opinions provided by this website are provided for educational and informational purposes only and we do not diagnose or treat via this website or via telephone.  Springs Rejuvenation and its affiliate treatment centers are offering patient funded research to provide individual patients with Stromal Vascular Fraction that contains their own autologous stem cells and growth factors and the treatment centers provide surgical procedures only and are not involved in the use or manufacture of any investigational drugs.

The Springs Rejuvenation does not claim that any applications, or potential applications, using autologous stem cells are approved by the FDA, or are even effective. We do not claim that these treatments work for any listed nor unlisted condition, intended or implied. It’s important for potential patients to do their own research based on the options that we present so that one can make an informed decision. Any decision to participate in our patient funded experimental protocols is completely voluntary.

ATTENTION: If you have ANY concern with stromal vascular fraction, any of our products, methods, website, or technique and think we may be violating any U.S. law, please contact us so that we can investigate the matter or concern immediately.

 

How Do I Know If I Am A Candidate For Stem Cell Treatments?

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.

 

How Are Stem Cells Administered?

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.

Intravenous (IV)

The safest and simplest method for delivering the stem cell throughout the body.

Intramuscular (IM)

The stem cells are injected directly into the muscle. 

Intra-articular (IA)

The stem cells are injected directly into the affected joint. This method is commonly used for arthritis.

What Is The Process For Harvesting Umbilical Cord Stem Cells?

Collection Process

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.

What are MSC Exosomes?

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 all the cells in our body and trigger comunication and transferring information.

How Long Does A Procedure Take? 

Procedures typically take about 1 hour from start to finish. We make sure you are relaxed and comfortable throughout your visit with us.

Is There Any Downtime?

There may be some minimal downtime after a stem cell procedure. Our stem cell patients can typically comfortably walk out on their own and can typically return to work and daily activities within a couple of days. Post-therapy guidelines will be covered during your visit with us.

How Much Does Stem Cell Therapy Cost?

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.

Is Financing Available?

Since insurance does not currently cover regenerative medicine procedures. Here at Springs Rejuvenation we are excited to offer a flexible option for patient financing!
