Umbilical Stem Cell Therapy and Amniotic Stem Cell Therapy are minimal invasive treatment options for a wide range of tissue damage, joint problems, and chronic pain. This novel type of procedure has several advantages:
- No Harvesting Procedure
To harvest stem cells from your own fat tissue and bone marrow, an additional, potentially painful procedure is required, for example, drilling a hole in your pelvic bone. Umbilical and amniotic stem cells, on the other hand, are harvested from the umbilical cord and placenta of healthy donors after C-sections. Thus, no additional procedure is necessary.
- Very High Potency
Umbilical and amniotic stem cells have an exceptionally high potency, as they are in a very early stage of development, compared to stem cells from adults. In addition to that, placental stem cells are considered “immune privileged”, because they very rarely evoke any immune response in the human body.
- Additional Natural Compounds
Umbilical as well as amniotic stem cell injections contain additional natural compounds that help restore mobility and lubricate the joints: They are also rich in hyaluronic acid, cytokines, growth factors, anti-microbial agents, and stem cell activators that help your body heal itself.
- FDA Guidelines
Stem cell therapy is a very innovative technique, which is why it is not yet FDA approved for joint pain. However, the umbilical as well as the amniotic amniotic stem cells used at Integrative Medical are obtained following strict FDA guidelines and processed in an FDA regulated lab, where they are cryogenically frozen. They arrive at Integrative Medical in perfect condition on the same day they are used for treatment.
