Regenerative Medicine -Stem Cells

Regenerative medicine is a cellular-level therapy that aims to improve the function of damaged or diseased tissue or organs by introducing cells to replace damaged cells. Today, regenerative medicine is being used to treat medical conditions across a range of medical specialties, including orthopedics, rheumatology, cardiology, neurology, and immunology.

Because of their ability to differentiate into cells that carry out the roles needed in a variety of organs, stem cells are an essential regenerative medicine tool. When stem cells are introduced into a damaged tissue or organ, they evolve to carry out the functions necessary, compensating for the damaged cells. As a minimally invasive process, regenerative medicine harnesses the natural capabilities of stem cells and the body’s own ability to heal, providing an opportunity to avoid invasive procedures. For patients with injuries or chronic diseases, regenerative medicine is a source of hope.

Scope of Regenerative Therapy

Stem cells, which occur naturally in the body, are “naive” or unspecialized. This means that, based on cues from their environment, these cells can transform into and assume the functions of a variety of different cells in the body. The ability to mature in a context-specific way is the key to the vast potential of stem cells in regenerative medicine. When injected into a damaged tissue, stem cells specialize to carry out the necessary function in that particular area, improving symptoms and function.


Will cord blood stem cell therapy help my knee, hip, foot & shoulder pain?

With a third of the US suffering from chronic pain, and over a million each year undergoing joint replacements in the US, stem cell therapy may eliminate your pain and increase your mobility. Some patients experience a huge reduction in pain within weeks of one injection. Previous treatments have included steroid injections, opioid (narcotic) pain / non-steroidal anti – inflammatory medications and even joint replacement. Stem cell therapy can repair fibrous connective tissue and stimulate the formation of cartilage, tendon, ligaments & bone. Cord blood stem cells not only promotes long term pain relief but a significant restoration of normal functions. Northeast Spine & Wellness Center now offers a cutting – edge regenerative medicine / Stem Cell therapy treatment option.

How do cord blood stem cell injections work? 

Cord blood cell injections offer the ability to heal damaged tissue naturally. Stem cells may repair the body by dividing to replenish cells that are damaged by disease, injury, or normal wear. The array of benefits related to cord blood is supported through the successful transplantation and coordination of multiple components. Umbilical cord blood contains a beneficial blend of cytokines, growth factors and stem cells that ensure a rich microenvironment to foster tissue regeneration and cellular growth. Your body has the natural ability to heal itself with stem cells and other derivatives. As you get older, the amount of stem cells you have in your body are greatly reduced and are not as efficient. Stem cells have emerged as a key element of regenerative medicine therapies. They also have immune – modulation properties which are very helpful in controlling pain & inflammation in the body. Regenerative medicine therapies include natural healing properties – reduces pain & inflammation – increase blood flow – minimally invasive – outpatient treatment – no down time – non-steroidal – safe and effective – promotes soft tissue growth – no adverse reactions.

What benefits does cord blood stem cell therapy offer?

Stem Cell therapy is an option for those looking for an alternative to surgery or potentially total joint replacement. Regenerative medicine and stem cell therapy allows a human body to naturally heal. It stimulates healthy cell growth and regenerates healthy tissue. Stem cell therapies have a multitude of growth factors producing cells. Growth factors are proteins naturally found in the body that promote the growth of cells and tissues. Stem cell therapies also use interleukins anti – inflammatory that reduce swelling and inflammation. Regenerative medicine therapy can stimulate your body’s own stem cells to proliferate and target damaged cells in your body and repair or replace them. Want to avoid surgery and down time? Do you suffer from back pain – knee injuries – knee pain – osteoarthritis – tendon / ligament / cartilage tears & injuries – muscle tears – arthritis – back pain – golfer’s elbow – tennis elbow – joint injuries – hip pain – shoulder pain – rotator cuff injury – carpal tunnel syndrome – plantar fasciitis …? Then regenerative medicine therapies are for you!

Are cord blood stem cell injections safe? 

Cord blood stem cell therapy is extremely safe and effective. The injections / therapies have been used more than 60,000 times in the United States with no reported adverse side effects and with 100% safety record in Europe with 100,000 patients treated. Every donor is tested under infectious disease panels that surpass governmental standards. All cord blood stem cell donors go through a rigorous screening process, as determined by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB). Furthermore, cord blood stem cells are fully documented, and screen tested thoroughly according to FDA’s registry requirements. This ensures the optimum quality and potent stem cells for a premium application. Regenerative medicine therapies are non – surgical procedures that take a minimal amount of time, faster recoveries, completely natural and no need to take pain medications. Regenerative medicine therapies use stem cells and their derivatives to help heal, regenerate tissue and decrease inflammation to improve your quality of life.

Am I a candidate for stem cell therapy? 

You may be a good candidate for stem cell therapy if you have been suffering from joint pain and want to improve your quality of life while avoiding complications related to invasive surgical procedures. Regenerative medicine is now the easiest noninvasive method to improve your quality of life. Patients suffering with knee, hip, shoulder, joint pain, etc. may be considered as candidates for cord blood stem cell therapy. If you have already tried conventional treatments, including steroids, narcotic pain & anti – inflammatory medications, etc.., cutting – edge regenerative medicine / Stem Cell therapy is a safe and effective option. Call to schedule a consultation with one of our doctors to determine if cord blood stem cell therapy is right for you.

Is it covered by Insurance?

Any stem cell treatment is not yet covered by insurance.
