Stem Cell FAQ

Scientists and doctors have made tremendous advances to make tissue regeneration a reality in treating many diseases. Through regenerative medicine, a person can take advantage of their body’s ability to heal itself by using the healthy stem cells that can be found throughout the body. Laboratory and clinical research has shown that it is possible to use stem cells to restore lost, damaged or aging cells and effectively regenerate tissue in the body.

What are adult stem cells?

Stem cells were discovered over 40 years ago when researchers found that cells derived from bone marrow had the ability to form various tissues. Stem cells are early stage cells that under the right conditions, are capable of developing into other types of cells with the potential to regenerate damaged tissue.

Where do adult stem cells come from?

In adults, stem cells are present within variety of tissues and organs, the most common sources being bone marrow and fat (or adipose) tissue. At present, the majority of adult stem cell procedures utilize bone marrow derived stem cells.

What is the procedure like?

A basic stem cell procedure lasts about 45 minutes or less. The physician will retrieve bone marrow percutaneously from the iliac crest of the hip (5 minutes). The aspirated bone marrow will then be concentrated into a smaller volume, devoid of plasma and red blood cells (12 minutes). Finally, the physician will deliver your concentrated stem cells back to the target site for regeneration.

How much will it cost?

Currently, insurance companies do not cover stem cell procedures. Ask your doctor for extended payment plans.

Is stem cell therapy safe, and does it work?

Decades of clinical studies have shown that adult stem cells are safe. You should not have any adverse effects following the use of your own stem cells.

How long will the stem cells last?

The treatment success will depend on your injury, the area that is treated, and your response to the therapy. Ask your doctor if you are a good candidate.

What is the recovery period like?

After a joint injection, you can typically go back to work. Immediately. It is advised to avoid load-bearing activities for at least 2 weeks. After a disc injection, you should rest for 2-3 days and try to stay off your feet. In any stem cell procedure, anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDS) should be withheld for 72 hours pre-procedure and one week post-procedure.
