Stem cells have the unique ability to divide and differentiate into different tissues. Once injected, they travel to areas of injury to begin the renewal process. Now there is an alternative to surgery and medications, and that is regenerative medicine! This is a powerful treatment that assists the body’s own healing process. No downtime and you can feel less pain within a week. Our stem cell treatments have been used on over 55,000 patients and there has not been one adverse effect reported.
Stem Cell Therapy
What is Stem Cell Therapy?
Stem Cell IV therapy involves the systemic injection of stem cells into the body. Infusions of stem cells have been used to treat many chronic conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, Traumatic Brian Injury, kidney and liver disease, and so much more. Patients will also get a stem cell wellness IV for anti-aging. Many studies are underway for these treatments with promising results.
How Do Stem Cells Work?
Stem cells are undifferentiated cells that have the ability to differentiate into functional cells such as intestinal cells, nerve cells, ligament, tendon, etc. When stem cells are injected into the blood or a joint they respond to cytokine signaling which cause them to migrate to areas where disease exists. There they initiate healing and repair. For example in COPD they migrate to the lungs or in heart disease they go to the cardiac tissue. There they secrete cytokines and growth factors to create a stronger more functional organ. Stem cells have the ability to reproduce which is valuable in the area of regenerative medicine.
Where do Stem cells come from?
There are 4 sources of stem cells.
- Bone Marrow
- Umbilical Cord/Wharton’s Jelly
Embryonic is created in utero. This source is illegal to use in treatments.
Bone marrow is the source that has been used the longest. It is however, not a good source for infusions/IV’s into the blood due to the large size of the cells which could cause pulmonary complications. However, It is a viable treatment for joints if the patient is young and healthy.
Adipose tissue has been widely used for joints and also infusions. However, recently the FDA is citing clinics for using adipose as it has been causing infections. When a patient decides to use their own fat as a source, there is no guarantee on the number or viability of the aspirate the doctor obtains from the surgical procedure. It is also invasive and may require anesthesia.
Umbilical cord/wharton’s jelly is the source that is safest for infusions and very concentrated in stem cells, cytokines and growth factors. There is no risk to the lungs and because it has been processed in an FDA lab there is no risk for infections.
Is Amniotic Fluid the same as stem cells?
While amniotic fluid does contain stem cells, it’s not enough to call it a stem cell treatment, although many clinics still call it that. It is important to have full disclosure to the patient that amniotic injections contain mostly cytokines and growth factors and just a few stem cells. This injection is very effective for joint arthritis, however it will not be effective when administered as an IV.
What are the benefits of Stem Cell Therapy?
- Safe and non-invasive office procedure.
- May reverse some chronic degenerative conditions
- Increase in stamina and endurance
- Significant decrease in pain and inflammation
- Most patients experience pain relief within a month

There Are 3 Main Treatments for Chronic Disease
Invasive with long recovery time. Risks associated with anesthesia and blood clots. Development of scar tissue which often leads to the need for future procedures.
Risk for addiction. Condition progresses due to deterioration of tissues. Adverse side effects and risk to liver, kidney, and intestines.
Safe in office procedure with no down time. Pain and inflammation are dramatically reduced. No adverse side effects. Stem cells regenerate ligaments, tendons, cartilage, organ and nerve tissue.
