Stem Cell Therapy

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 of these injuries or diseases; while stem cells from umbilical cord blood and tissue have the capability to restore the regenerative tissue and bone back to its original condition.

What Stem Cells are Used?

At Spring Creek Medical, 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 of the highest priority. The Stem Cells used in our treatment undergo extensive screening for possible infection and impurities utilizing sophisticated tests for Stem Cell research and transplant. Our testing process ensures we use only the healthiest cells to enable the safest and most effective Stem Cell treatment possible. Unlike other types of Stem Cells, there is no danger of the body’s rejection of Stem Cells due to the fact they are “immune privileged.” This means that you can give the cells to any patient without the recipients tissue matching and the body will not reject the stem cells. This unique quality eliminates the need for drugs used to suppress the immune system to prevent rejection, which can leave a patient exposed to serious infections.

How are Stem Cells Administered?

Stem Cells are given in different ways depending on the treatment needed. Stem Cells can be given systemically via IV administration for patients that will benefit from stem cell therapy in multiple locations in the body. 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 the Stem Cell Treatment?

Every person is of course different. Each of our body’s healing mechanisms work at a unique pace as they are influenced by many factors. Commonly, significant positive changes are seen between three to six months post 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 will 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, usually a waiting period of 6 months is recommended.

Are there any Side Effects to Stem Cells?

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, the 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 can I tell 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 into the problem, whereas, other patients may benefit from IV infusion. Our provider will discuss with you the amount of Stem Cells you will need. Some patients may benefit from more stem cells than others. Most patients do well with 1cc of stem cells. Patients with more complex conditions or conditions that have been in a more chronic state will need 2cc of Stem Cells to see results.  

How Much is Stem Cell Therapy?

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