Introduction to Stem Cells

Stem Cells are special cells found in the human body from birth.   These specialized cells are powerhouses that contain regenerative properties. Stem cells aid in the repair and regeneration of muscle, tendons, cartilage, bone and more.

Remember how quickly you would heal when you were younger and had an injury like a sprained ankle or cut? That’s because your body would recruit your plentiful stem cells to come and reduce the swelling and repair the damage. As you’ve gotten older and sustained an injury, you may have noticed it takes significantly longer to heal. That’s because as we get older our bodies produce drastically less stem cells.  However, with scientific advances we now have more options for stem cell therapy.

One common source for these specialized cells is from umbilical cord blood.  You may have heard of cord blood banking offered to new parents when they have a child. Cord blood contains a mixed population of cells, including hematopoietic stem cells (HSC) and mesenchymal stems cells (MSC), which have the ability to renew, release growth factors and become different types of cells throughout the body.  Cord blood contains many more of these powerfuls stem cells than we have within our bodies as adults, which is why it is a popular option for treatment.  Here at Summit Health Centers, we utilize stem cells derived from cord blood, which has been donated by the parents after a healthy childbirth.

Low-Cost Umbilical Stem Cell Treatment

Patients are often surprised to learn how easy the process is for stem cell therapy. First, most patients visit Summit Health Center for an informational seminar. This is a great opportunity to learn more about the details of stem cells, where they come from, and what they treat. From there, if you think this might be the right treatment for you, you can schedule a consultation with a doctor.

At your consultation, your doctor will explore your medical history and your particular problem. You’ll discuss your treatment of this problem in the past and whether this treatment is right for you. If you’re a good fit, a nurse practitioner or medical doctor will proceed with the actual procedure.

Stem Cell Therapy Procedure

It’s normal to be worried about undergoing a new procedure, especially one like stem cell therapy which isn’t as widely known to the public. The actual stem cell therapy procedure is quick! A medical professional will execute a three-minute injection to each of the affected areas, and from there you will wait in the office for another 5 to 10 minutes. Side effects are rare, but this is a good time to ask any questions about the next few weeks.

Within a few minutes of the actual injections, you’re ready to drive home! You don’t need anyone to accompany you to and from your procedure, and you will have no downtime after the procedure.

What Happens After My Stem Cell Treatment?

You might not notice a difference in the affected area for four to six weeks. That’s because unlike medication, you need time for the regenerative technology to rebuild the problem area. This process takes time, but it’s a regenerative solution. Four weeks after your procedure, you’ll meet with a Summit Health Centers professional for a follow-up appointment to monitor any changes or progress. The goal is to have you feeling your best in no time!
