The Most Advanced, Natural Healing Procedure

Stem Cell Therapy stem cell therapy Stem Cells Therapy 48021 hi stem cell all 300x226Stem Cell Therapy employs the body’s own healing potential by isolating stem cells from one location of the body (fat tissue or bone marrow) and relocating them to an area of disease, injury, or inflammation. The main function of stem cells is to maintain and repair tissue. Stem Cell Therapy enhances this natural function by getting stem cells more directly to an area of need within the body. As soon, as stem cells get in there, they will grow to type of cells the body needs to be repaired. Stem cells have the unique ability to form many different types of tissue including bone, cartilage, muscle, etc. They are naturally anti-inflammatory, and can therefore help in the body’s own healing process and potentially reverse the effects of many diseases.

Some of the conditions currently being successfully treated include arthritis, sport related injuries, COPD, CHF, CAD, DM, auto-immune disease such as Lupus Erythematosus and Crohn’s disease, neurological disorders such as multiple sclerosis and Parkinson disease, spinal cord injuries, autism, critical limb ischemia, and many others.

American Regenerative Clinic will perform outpatient procedures using a process in which we isolate a patient’s own stem cells from either their own adipose (fat) tissue, or bone marrow. After mini-liposuction or bone marrow harvest from pelvic bone under local anesthesia, the patient tissue will be specially processed. Then immediately Isolated Stem Cells will be delivered to the same patient. Depending on nature of the disease, the cells may be injected into the joint, IV, intrathecal (lumbar puncture), intramuscular, or as a combination of above. The entire process will take just a few hours.

In many old injuries and degenerative diseases, a phenomenon called “cellular depletion” occurs. Because Prolotherapy and PRP rely on the body’s available repair cells locally, these two methods may produce little results. Prolotherapy starts repair process by mobilizing growth factors in the area via lengthy process of multiple injections. PRP brings them right away, but lacks “bricks” for repair. More advanced Stem Cell Therapy delivers everything the body needs for promising treatment.
