For many patients with debilitating degeneration treatment options are very limited: steroid injections, joint replacement surgery (and replacement alternatives), physical therapy, etc. However at the Advanced Medical &Wellness Center we provide a cutting-edge procedure known as a Regenerative Cell injection.
This particular Regenerative Cell Therapy takes advantage of the body’s own ability to heal and regenerate itself. Once injected into the target degenerated or injured joint, these regenerative cells have anti-inflammatory properties, similar to cortisone and steroid shots, however, this Regenerative Cell Therapy goes far beyond the benefits of standard “injection therapy.” Where traditional injections only temporarily decrease pain in the joint, the regenerative cella actually regenerate the tissues within the joint!
You are probably asking yourself two questions;
#1 - Are regenerative cell injections safe? Absolutely! Our regenerative cells come from donors who are approved by going through a rigorous medical and social history and detailed risk assessment. There are several layers of safety and tests and reviews the donor goes through to assure the safety and vitality of the cells. The cells themselves are considered to be “minimally manipulated” by FDA standards, which means they do NOT have any preservatives or additives and are NOT mixed with any drug.
#2 - What about the ethical dilemma of harvesting the regenerative cells? The regenerative cells we at the Advanced Medical & Wellness Center use come from Amnio Technology LLC. This company ONLY harvests regenerative cells (as well as the surrounding growth and healing factors) from the placenta of healthy mothers at the time of a scheduled full term cesarean section (C-section) birth. Let us say that again, there is NO fetal sacrifice involved. Every step of the process is perfectly safe from the donor to the patient.
