Autologous Stem Cells therapy American Regenerative clinic, located in Bloomfield Hills Michigan is one of the leading clinics in Michigan to offer stem cell therapy. Dr. Andrey Lutskovsky believes in natural treatments for disease and pain management, including stem cell therapy. Umbilical cord stem cells and autologous stem cells are two natural stem cell therapy options that offer ample benefits to the patient in different ways. Let’s take a closer look at Umbilical Cord and Autologous stem cells and their benefits.

What are Umbilical Cord Stem Cells?

Umbilical cord stem cells are collected at birth from the blood in the umbilical cord. The umbilical cord blood contains hematopoietic stem cells which are similar to the stem cells found in bone marrow. These cells are a genetic match to the baby so if he or she needs stem cells to fight infection or disease, umbilical cord stem cells are safe to use for treatment. Umbilical cord stem cells can be used privately for the patient, or donated to be used publicly for the general population. To read more about stem cell research click here.

What are Autologous Stem Cells?

Autologous stem cells are stem cells that use the patients own bone marrow or blood. Once a patient is deemed eligible to undergo this stem cell treatment, the process includes removing stem cells from their own bone marrow. The cells are retrieved and frozen until the patient has completed all other treatments (for example chemotherapy for a blood cancer) at which time the cells are reintroduced to the body.
