What are Stem Cells?
Simply put, stem cells are your body’s internal repair system. Each of these divided cells has the potential to become another type of cell with a specialized function depending on what your body needs.
What can Stem Cells do?
Stem Cells seek out degeneration in your body and help to build, repair, and grow new tissue. They are very effective in reducing inflammation and help modulate the body’s immune responses. As you age the number of stem cells you have declines, resulting in a lessened ability to repair damage.
What is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative medicine is the administration of these umbilical cord blood stem cells into your body to help your body regenerate. The placement of these cells is determined by the medical provider and can be injected directly into the problem area or administered through an IV infusion.
Where do Stem Cells come from?
There are a lot of different types of stem cells that all come from different places, some of these types include fetal/ embryonic, amniotic fluid, placenta, autologous (your own), and umbilical cord blood stem cell (UCBSC).
We use Umbilical Cord Stem Cells as they come from healthy mothers delivering healthy babies. We consider them the best for quite a few reasons.
- Umbilical Cord Stem Cells are undifferentiated cells which means no potential allergic reactions.
- Umbilical Cord Stem Cells are immune privileged which means anyone can be treated.
- Umbilical Cord Stem Cells are simple, fast, and safe through a quick direct injection or an IV fusion.
- Umbilical Cord Stem Cells are customizable for the individual. They are potent, robust, and consistent.
- Umbilical Cord Stem Cells support anti-inflammatory activity, immune modulating capacity, and contain the optimum ability to stimulate regeneration.
- This is the safest and least invasive method possible for extracting stem cells.
Are Stem Cells safe?
Yes, Stem Cells are safe! We follow all of the strictest medical guidelines and cellular regeneration is FDA cleared. We value you comfort, safety, and recovery above all else! These stem cells are thoroughly tested and screened under NIH, FED, AATB, and AABB guidelines.
Who can benefit from Stem Cells?
Stem cells have been used with success for arthritis, osteoarthritis, bulging discs, herniated discs, chronic joint pain, chronic back pain, spinal cord injuries, meniscus tears, ACL tears, MCL tears, knee injuries, hip labral tears, tendinitis, and more!
There are currently studies being conducted on stem cells and degenerative illnesses such as Lupus, Cystitis, Crohn’s disease, Psoriasis, Vitiligo, Scleroderma, Sarcoidosis, Fibromyalgia, Myasthenia Gravis, Vasculitis, Chronic Fatigue, Gastritis, Erectile Dysfunction, Peyronie’s Disease, Raynaud’s Phenom, Ankylosing Spondylitis, Guillain-Barre Syndrome, Alzheimer’s Disease, Stroke, Drug Addiction, ALS, Dermatological Conditions, Heart Disease, and many more.
Will I see immediate results after Regenerative Medicine?
Individual results vary from person to person. Some people see results in as little as a few hours, while most people notice improvement after about four to six weeks. Stem cells will reproduce every 28 hours for about 65 generations for approximately 90 days. Remember, this is a regenerative process and there are no promises for results.

How long does regenerative medicine take?
Regenerative medicine is very quick, usually around ten minutes. The consultation process will take a bit longer as the Nurse Practitioner, Royceann Odom, will sit you and create a custom therapy plan for your needs.
How many Stem Cell treatments will I need?
Everyone is different, but based on the current research most individuals respond very well with one treatment. Others have found a greater benefit with a second therapy 3-6 months later. Some have found the best therapy plan for them is a regularly scheduled treatment every six months for anti-inflammatory benefits.
Will my insurance cover regenerative medicine?
No, insurance does not cover regenerative medicine. However, regenerative medicine is still less than the cost of most copays and deductibles!
How much do stem cells cost?
Regenerative medicine will vary in cost depending on your unique needs. We will set you up with a free consultation where our Nurse Practitioner, Royceann Odom, will talk with you about what will best suit your needs. We provide lots of financing options and will work with you to get what you need.
