What are stem cells?

Stem cells are like the “blank slates” of the cell world. Unlike other cells that are specialized (for instance, skin cells or muscle cells), stem cells have the ability to become many other types of cells, which makes them indispensable in treating many chronic medical conditions.

Once in your bloodstream, the cells are attracted to damaged areas, traveling to those sites and creating new tissue. Allowing the body to naturally heal and repair itself. During stem cell therapy at Springs Rejuvenation, Dr. Pereyra extracts stem cells from your fat, bone marrow or a donated umbilical chord. Injecting them either intravenously or into the injured joint. The procedure takes under an hour to complete. With the most pronounced results being seen in two weeks, and peeking at 6 months.

Joint and Bone Health

Joint and Bone Health

Acute joint injuries and pain significantly impact the health of people across the globe. We currently use a variety of treatments to help alleviate the root cause of pain, helping injuries to heal without the need for surgery

Our custom treatment protocols for acute and chronic joint and back pain by combine stem cell therapy with the latest techniques in pain management and nutrition including: Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate; Dry Needling; and Facet Joint, Epidural, and Intradiscal Injections

Heart Health
Cardiac regeneration using stem cell therapy has been shown to aid patients who've had heart attacks, heart failure, and even patients with large and small vessel disease. In each case, the goal of treatment is to allow the stem cells to help repair and replace damaged tissue in the heart and the blood vessels.
Lung Health

Current research shows significant lung tissue regeneration and improvement of chronic lung conditions. Including Asthma, COPD, emphysema, and acute lung injury.

Cognitive Health
Current data is now showing the ability for neurons to heal and regrow. Improving conditions such as Alzheimer's, traumatic brain injury, acute stroke and other cognitive disorders.
Skin Health
One of the most exciting fields in stem cell therapy is the application to improve skin health. Helping in the removal of scars, restoring collagen, reducing acne and fine lines associated with aging.
Auto Immune and Inflammatory Conditions

Auto Immune and Inflammatory Conditions

Currently, autoimmune conditions are treated with immune suppressive agents such as steroids, methothrexate, cyclosporine, gold, and more recently infliximab (Remicade). Despite inducing temporary improvement, these approaches possess the possibility of long-term adverse effects, as well as need for life-long treatment.

Stem cell therapy has been demonstrated to induce profound healing activity in animals with various forms of autoimmune disorders. Besides healing damaged tissues, stem cells have the unique ability to modulate the immune system so as to shut off pathological responses while preserving its ability to fight off disease. Stem cells and specifically, mesenchymal stem cells home to inflamed tissue and start producing anti-inflammatory agents. These mediators act locally and do not suppress the immune response of the patient's whole body. Additionally, mesenchymal stem cells induce the production of T regulatory cells, a type of immune cell whose function is to protect the body against immunological self-attack.

Multiple Sclerosis

Stem cells are being used to help repair neurological damage that occurs in MS, and studies show they're also able to travel directly to brain lesions and improve brain cell health. Stem cells also help control unusual immune system activity, which plays a significant role in MS.

Kidney Disease

Because stem cells have the ability to transform into many other types of cells, including kidney tissue, they’re being used to treat both acute and chronic kidney injury and kidney disease. The goal is to replace damaged cells and cells that have already been lost due to tissue damage.
