You are a collection of over 10 trillion human cells. Every cell in your body performs a specific function. Your brain cells assist in cognition, the cells in your lungs allow you to breath, the cells in your ligaments keep your joints securely intact.
Stem cells have the remarkable ability to “differentiate” into any other type of cell in the body. Once they receive the command, they go to work repairing damaged tissues, enhancing organ regrowth and eliminating inflammation. These stem cells reside everywhere: in our bone marrow, in our fat, and in every single tissue compartment.
Today we are seeing incredible results with stem cells in treating heart disease, brain disease, diabetes, cancer, arthritis, spinal cord injuries, burns, macular degeneration, and much more.
Stem cells are being used to regenerate tissue and literally rebuild organs. Individuals who struggle with Diabetes, MS or Parkinson’s disease have found relief through stem cell therapy. We have also seen the reversal of chronic joint inflammation and degradation in arthritis.

Stem Cells FAQs:
How long does it take before I see results from the procedure?
In most cases you will see relief within 2 to 3 weeks. Stem cells will continue to replicate for about 250 days so it could take up to 3 months before significant improvements are seen.
How does it work?
Stem cells are beaming with life and are undifferentiated, meaning they do not have a signal to begin new growth in a tissue compartment. This means that if you have liver cells that are damaged the stem cells will seek out the damage and start repairing your liver. If you have a torn ligament and cartilage missing, the stem cells will go to work at laying down a new cellular matrix to repair the ligaments and regrow cartilage.
How do I qualify for the treatment?
One of our medical providers will assess your specific health goals and determine if stem cell therapy is right for you. If you are qualified for the procedure we can usually perform the treatment within a few days.
Is stem cell treatment affordable and will my insurance cover it?
In relation to a total knee replacement or a disk fusion stem cell therapy is incredibly cost effective. Most treatments are usually less than the co-insurance part of surgery. We can typically make stem cell therapy’s cost work with any budget. Depending on your insurance company and individual policy, there may be some insurance codes that allow you some reimbursement on the cost.
Is stem cell therapy safe?
The safest form of stem cell therapy is amniotic tissue allograft which has been used with zero side-effects in over 300,000 cases. These stem cells come from an FDA approved facility and provide up to 400 growth factors and natural cytokines to ensure no reaction with the recipient.
How much recovery time is needed?
Virtually zero. We ask that you take it easy for the first 2 weeks following a joint injection so that you don’t disrupt the articulation. If you have received stem cell therapy for lung issues, an auto-immune condition or diabetes then there is no recovery time.
How do I get started?
