Q: How do stem cells help in the treatment of knee, hip and shoulder pain?
Stem cells are present in all of us acting like a repair system for the body. However, with increased age sometimes the optimum amounts of stem cells are not delivered to the injured area. The goal of stem cell therapy is to amplify the natural repair system of the patient’s body.
Q: How do you prepare for the stem cell procedure?
Preparing for the Procedure
It is important that you stop taking any non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) at least two weeks before your procedure.
Preparing for a stem cell procedure is relatively easy and your doctor will give you specific instructions depending on your condition.
Q: How are stem cells derived from umbilical cord blood used for treatment of knee, hip and shoulder pain?
Procedure using stem cells derived from umbilical cord blood:
The procedure is performed using pre-packaged, ready-to-use umbilical cord blood. Donors undergo a rigorous screening process to meet the highest industry standards. State-of-the-art scientific technology is used to create a cellular suspension of mesenchyme cells. These cells can differentiate in different cell types such as bone, cartilage, and muscle. The product is frozen to maintain cellular integrity. No synthetic or chemical preservatives are used. UCB has been scientifically proven to have concentrations of mesenchymal cells and other cell populations necessary to stimulate the regenerative process.
Q: What sets us apart at Renovo Stem?
We use Wharton’s Jelly Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells (WJ-MSCs) which are a novel cellular repair matrix derived from the Wharton’s Jelly of the umbilical cord. Wharton’s Jelly is a matrix of embryonic connective tissue that is found between the amnion and the umbilical vessels. Wharton’s Jelly is robust in hyaluronic acid and growth factors and, in comparison to amniotic tissue, contains up to 50 times more growth factors.
The use of BEMER Vascular Therapy
At Renovo Stem we use a medical technology called the BEMER, a device NASA uses on their Astronauts to keep them healthy. It increases blood flow and oxygen to our 100 trillion cells by 30%. There are no other devices out there that can accomplish this. By combining stem cells and BEMER, we have the ability to increase the positive results of our patient outcomes.
