What is stem cell therapy? Stem cell therapy is a method of treatment that involves extracting stem cells and then injecting them into an injured or degenerated area of the body. The cells involved in this form of treatment are harvested directly from the patient or a close family member. At Advanced Health Center, we do not perform this type of therapy, instead we utilize regenerative cells that are collected from the Wharton’s Jelly of donated umbilical cord tissue, as well as exosomes, amniotic fluid, cytokines, growth factors, and other elements that encourage fast and efficient healing. We choose these sources because the cells are much younger, highly effective at regenerating damaged tissue, and the process is not harmful to the donor or the patient.

Types of Stem Cell Therapy
The two most known types of stem cell therapy are adipose tissue and bone marrow stem cell treatments. Here are a couple reasons why our doctors do not perform these type of treatments:
Adipose tissue stem cell treatments involve extracting stem cells from a patient’s fatty tissue. The problem with this is that toxins are often stored in the fatty tissue and can harm the cells that are intended for healing. The extraction and injection procedure only moves the toxins to a more vulnerable area of the body.
Bone marrow stem cell therapy calls for a hole to be drilled into the femur or hip bone in a painful procedure that opens the patient up to the risk of infection. This extraction process is extremely painful, and the patient must endure a lengthy recovery time post-treatment.
Age is another factor with both of these methods of treatment. Both bone marrow and adipose stem cells are the age of the patient, and older stem cells aren’t as potent and effective for healing as younger ones.
Regenerative Cell Therapy
The cells utilized in our nonsurgical regenerative cellular therapy come from Wharton’s jelly, which is found in the umbilical cord tissue of newborn infants after a healthy cesarean section birth. Wharton’s jelly contains a very high concentration of healing mesenchymal cells, and they are safely and ethically sourced. Neither mother nor child is harmed in the collection process.
Our doctors prefer regenerative cell therapy due to the cells’ incredible ability to regenerate damaged or degraded tissue. Upon injection, they encourage the body’s natural healing processes, and get to the root of your pain to repair it at the source. There is no risk of rejection or adverse effects as the cells are too young to have an immune system, and our patients are in and out the same day.
Our doctors utilize regenerative cell therapy to help patients heal from a variety of conditions, including:
- Knee pain
- Torn ligaments
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Disc problems
- Shoulder pain
- Torn rotator cuff
- Torn labrum
- Elbow pain
- Joint pain
- Hip pain
- Damaged or degraded cartilage
- Plantar fasciitis
- And more
