Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Therapy can be used to treat a broad variety of medical conditions, ranging from Pain Management, Diabetes, Heart Disease, Rheumatology, Kidney Disease, Autoimmune Disorders, Neurology and in surgical procedures.
Amniotic fluid and Flowable Amnion with viable cellular material is obtained from Placental products from healthy live birthed babies. Amniotic Fluid has similar regenerative characteristics as stem cells since it possesses the ability to create a cellular cascade recruiting the bodies own Stem Cells. This means that this cellular cascade either makes new cells that are the same, or they make cells that can change into the type of cell that the body needs. Amniotic flowables have anti-inflammatory properties (Cytokins & Growth Factors) similar to cortisone and steroid shots, and thus can be used to treat conditions like knee osteoarthritis, Achilles tendonitis, rotator cuff tendonitis and degenerative arthritis.
PRP Therapy takes platelets and growth factors from your own blood. We process (spin) it in a centrifuge, place into a syringe, and inject it back into your own body. The platelets are re-injected into the injured area, releasing growth factors that promote natural tissue healing. PRP therapy can be used to treat conditions like ACL injuries, back and neck injuries, ankle sprains, tendonitis, ligament sprains and a variety of osteoarthritis.
Prolotherapy is short for ‘proliferation therapy. It is also know as nonsurgical ligament and tendon construction or regenerative injection therapy. Therapy entails the injection of a substance that promotes growth of normal cells, tissues or organs. Prolotherapy can be used to treat conditions like chronic back pain, neck pain, knee pain (including meniscal tears), wrist and hand pain, osteoarthritis, shoulder pain (including rotator cuff tears), elbow pain, foot pain, ankle pain and other musculoskeletal pain or injuries.
Umbilical Cord Blood Stem Cells are derived from umbilical cords and the placenta donated by mothers after normal and healthy child births. This cord blood contains hematopoietic (blood) stem cells and can be used to treat leukemia, blood and bone marrow disorders and immune deficiencies.
Cord Tissue Stem Cells are considered to have more potential than former stem cell therapies. Still considered experimental, they can only be performed under an IRB study. We are currently working with both the University of Southern California in Los Angeles and other academic relationships.
