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 stem cell injection.
This particular stem cell treatment takes advantage of the body’s own ability to heal and regenerate itself. Once injected into the target degenerated or injured joint, these stem cells have anti-inflammatory properties, similar to cortisone and steroid shots, however, this stem cell therapy goes far beyond the benefits of standard “injection therapy.” Where traditional injections only temporarily decrease pain in the joint, the stem cells actually regenerate the tissues within the joint!
You are probably asking yourself two questions;
#1 - Are stem cell injections safe? Absolutely! Our stem 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 stem cells? The stem cells we at the Advanced Medical & Wellness Center use come from Amnio Technology LLC. This company ONLY harvests stem 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.
