Regenerative Cell Therapy

FAQ’s

How long does the repair process take?

Generally, the repair process begins immediately and it can continue for up to eight months from the date of the initial procedure.

Why are amniotic regenerative cells a better choice than my own regenerative cells?

A newborn has an extremely high concentration of quality regenerative cells that are most likely to regenerate quickly without any chance of rejection. These same regenerative cells are found in the amniotic fluid and placenta that supported baby’s growth while in the womb. These cells are in their most ideal state and because of their vast numbers are easily harvested. Likewise as you age, your regenerative cells age and diminish in ability to regenerate. Adults have far fewer viable regenerative cells than newborns. Adult regenerative cells would have to be extracted from the patient’s bone marrow, which would yield far fewer quality cells and would be a painful, costly and unnecessary step.

How are regenerative cells collected?

Regenerative Cells are collected from mothers who have donated their placental tissue after delivering a child by c-section under strict guidelines established by the FDA. Potential donors are screened and tested to ensure they are healthy. Regenerative cells are also tested before and after they are harvested to ensure viability.

Is regenerative cell therapy safe?

Absolutely! Our Regenerative Cell Therapy is an extremely safe treatment option. We are committed to the highest standards of patient safety, and adhere to stringent FDA regulations.

How often does the procedure work?

Regenerative Cell Therapy has amazing results on a wide range of conditions. Most people generally feel significant, if not complete relief from this non-surgical procedure. In a recent study from an amniotic manufacturer, they found that in a group of over 60 participants the average pain scale went from an 8 to a 0 in just 5 weeks for all the participants!

What factors would determine my outcome with regenerative cell therapy?

Various factors will determine the outcome of your regenerative Cell Therapy treatment, such as the extent of damage, disease and the location being treated. Most people respond well to this therapy and experience relief from pain in a short period of time. For instance, this therapy has been known to provide full relief to patients after only one treatment.

Is more than one treatment needed?

Not every person is the same. Obviously that possibility exists and that’s why we take our patients through our advanced assessment so we can carefully determine if you are one of those special cases. It is important to understand that once a joint regenerates, there would be no need for further treatment unless a new injury occurred or over-time, the joint degenerated again. Many patients are experiencing major relief from our Regenerative Cell Therapy after only ONE treatment!

If the regenerative cell therapy does not work can I still have surgery?

Yes. There is nothing about this procedure that would preclude you from having traditional surgery. We evaluate each case carefully, however, so if it’s possible to tell that the best course of action is truly conventional surgery we will advise you of that.

Regenerative cells are unspecialized or undifferentiated cells that can change into different types of cells depending on what your body tells them to do. Regenerative cells can rebuild damaged tissue, ligaments and cartilage in an affected joint. The Regenerative cells are injected in the affected area under sterile conditions with the help of guided ultrasound.

After the procedure patients are encourage to use the area as normal and are prescribed exercises to help the Regenerative cells determine how to develop. Most patients return to their normal activities that day. As the Regenerative cells develop, pain subsides and function improves. The chart below demonstrates the average recovery curve a Regenerative cell patient experiences.

The Facts About Amniotic Regenerative Cells

When you are young, you have a high concentration of Regenerative cells which substantially decreases as you age. And as you age, your Regenerative cells age too. They have recycled many, many times and most have reached their limit with regards to regeneration. As you can see from the chart on the left newborns have the highest amount of Regenerative cells. We can safely extract high quality Regenerative cells from the placenta and amniotic fluid after a c-section birth which would provide the most optimal scenario for regeneration.

Amniotic Regenerative cells offer:

  • The highest concentration of Regenerative cells available
  • The highest numbers of Cytokines (cells that tell other cells what to form into.)
  • The highest concentration of Growth Factors, (collagen, amino acids, carbohydrates, electrolytes and enzymes)
  • The ability to form into ALL adult cell types
  • ZERO chance of rejection
  • No surgery or pain
  • Most cost effective.

Regenerative Cells Are Harvested and Prepared Under Strict Guidelines

  • Placental Regenerative cells are collected from human amniotic membranes & fluid.
  • Amniotic membrane and fluid have no antigens and does not cause rejection when injected into your body.
  • Our Donors are healthy new moms who had c-sections. They have undergone a rigorous screening process and want to help others regain their health.
  • In addition, the tissue is tested before and after processing to ensure it has ZERO Chorionic tissue and 100% Amnionic tissue.
  • Our procedures follow FDA Guideline 21CFR Part 1271 and the American Association of Tissue Banks rules and guidelines.
  • All evaluated by a Medical Director at the donor site.

Over 50,000 injections have been administered without 1 adverse reaction.

Arthritis Progression

Phase 1

The cartilage between the joint softens. The cartilage loses its ability to absorb impact and is more easily damaged. Space between the joint is measurably lost..

Phase 2

Large sections of cartilage may wear away completely. The joint begins to lose its normal shape as the cartilage breaks down. Sensation of bone on bone rubbing in the joint is noticed.

Phase 3

Bony growths, or spurs, called osteophytes may form on the edges of bones in the joint. Open cysts may form in the bone, near the joint and bits of bone may float around in the joint space.

After Regenerative Cell Therapy

Xrays Record Results 9 Weeks After Treatment

Before

After

The cartilage between the joints is regenerated, increasing space between joint. Patient reports substantial pain relief and improved mobility in joint.
