Stem Cell Therapy

Stem Cell Therapy and How it Works

 

Stem Cells are the cellular building blocks within the body. The stem cells used by Spring Creek Medical Center remain in an undifferentiated state and are capable of becoming any tissue, organ or cell type within the body. Fetal stem cells also release cytokines and bring normal cells and tissues to a higher level of function for repair and new growth.

Following the treatment, the stem cells travel throughout the body and detect damaged cells and tissues and attempt to restore them. The stem cells stimulate existing normal cells and tissues to operate more efficiently and boost the body’s own repair mechanisms to aid in the healing process. These highly adaptive cells remain in the body and continually locate and repair any damage they encounter.

Stem Cell Therapy and How it Works

Stem Cells are the cellular building blocks of the 220 cell types within the body. The Stem Cells used by Spring Creek Medical Center remain in an undifferentiated state and therefore are capable of becoming any tissue, organ or cell type within the body. Fetal Stem Cells also release Cytokines. Cytokines are cell-derived, hormone-like polypeptides that regulate cellular replication, differentiation, and activation. Cytokines can bring normal cells and tissues to a higher level of function, allowing the body’s own healing mechanisms to partner with the transplanted Stem Cells for repair and new growth. Following the treatment, the Stem Cells will travel throughout the body, detecting damaged cells and tissue and attempts to restore them. The Stem Cells stimulate existing normal cells and tissues to operate at a higher level of function, boosting the body’s own repair mechanisms to aid in the healing process. These highly adaptive cells then remain in the body, continually locating and repairing any damage they encounter.

Why Choose Stem Cell Therapy?

Adipose tissue stem cells, cortisone injections, and other medicines offer a temporary cure for some injuries or diseases. Stem cells from umbilical cord blood and tissue have the capability to restore regenerative tissue and bone back to its original condition.

 

What Stem Cells are Used?

At Spring Creek Medical Center, we use embryonic stem cells for a multitude of reasons including their ability to last for long periods of time. As with any medical treatment, safety should be the highest priority. Any stem cells we use for treatment undergo extensive screening for possible infection or impurities. Our testing process ensures we only use the healthiest cells which enables the safest and most effective stem cell treatment possible. Unlike other cells, there is no danger of your body rejecting stem cells because they are “immune privileged.” This means that you can give the cells to any patient without tissue matching and the body will not experience a harmful rejection to the stem cells. This unique quality eliminates the need for drugs that suppress the immune system and can leave a patient exposed to serious infections.

 

How are Stem Cells Administered?

Stem cells are administered in different ways depending on the treatment needed. Patients that will benefit from stem cell therapy in multiple locations in the body can be given stem cells systemically through IV administration. For patients with more localized issues, such as joint complications, stem cells can be injected directly into the damaged area.

 

How Quickly Will I See Results After Stem Cell Treatment?

Each person is different. Our body’s healing mechanisms each work at a unique pace and is influenced by many factors. Most commonly, significant positive changes are seen between three to six months after treatment. At times, these changes can occur in as little as weeks or even days after receiving treatment.

 

How Many Stem Cell Treatments Will I Need?

After the first treatment, the fetal stem cells continue to proliferate and repair. Some patients choose to receive treatment more than one time to expedite the healing process. The decision is yours. If you decide to repeat the treatment, a waiting period of 6 months is usually recommended.

 

Are There Any Side Effects?

There are no known side effects with the stem cells used in our clinic. There can be minor localized side effects associated with infusion site tenderness from the IV insertion or injection site. The stem cell treatment itself has no known negative side effects.

 

Are Stem Cells Covered by Insurance?

No, stem cell treatment is not covered by private or public health insurance. We do offer financing options for patients that need to have stem cell therapy.

How Do I Know if Stem Cells Can Help?

After meeting with our provider, we can determine which treatment option will be right for you. Some patients may benefit from direct injection and other patients may benefit from IV infusion. Our provider will discuss the amount of stem cells you will need with you. Some patients benefit from more stem cells than others. Most patients do well with 1cc of stem cells. Patients with more complex or chronic conditions often need 2cc of Stem Cells to see results.  

How Much Does Stem Cell Therapy Cost?

Stem cells vary in cost depending on the amount needed. Our provider will meet with you to determine the amount of stem cells and treatment needed. Once this is determined, we will have you meet with our financial team to determine a payment method that works best for you.
