WHAT IS REGENERATIVE MEDICINE USING STEM CELLS?
Regenerative human umbilical cord derived stem cells are a safe, effective, non-surgical way to treat chronic pain and conditions at their source. Stem cells activate your body’s own healing mechanisms and help regenerate and facilitate the repair of cells damaged by disease, genetics, injury, or simple aging. The life changing benefits of stem cells include relief from chronic pain, potentially eliminating the need for surgery, effective, long-term results, and improving your overall quality of life.
HOW DO STEM CELLS WORK?
Stem cells are injected into the body through a safe stem cell procedure in our office in a same-day visit. The procedure is non-surgical and the number of treatments is determined based on an in-depth consultation. We use human umbilical cord derived stem cells (specifically Wharton’s Jelly) from FDA regulated cord banks that have the ability to reduce inflammation, repair and regenerate damaged tissue, and modulate the immune system. That means that regenerative medicine using stem cells is particularly effective in relieving pain associated with osteoarthritis and chronic joint pain where other conventional methods of treatment have fallen short

Stem Cells Can Restore Your Quality of Life In Richmond, VA
Human Umbilical Cord-Derived Stem Cells
Research and results have shown that umbilical cord-derived stem cells (specifically Wharton’s Jelly) have an innate ability to activate your body’s own self-healing mechanisms. They seek out inflammation and degeneration – They go where your body needs them to go and begin repairing and regenerating.
Avoid Surgery & Get Your Life Back
We receive our human umbilical cord derived stem cells (Wharton’s Jelly) from a tissue bank that is FDA regulated. Our safe, non-invasive procedure, which includes joint injections give your body a boost of fresh, “day 0”, very young, adult mesenchymal stem cells, also known as Wharton’s Jelly, that activate healing and start the regeneration process. There is a time and place for medication and surgery, however, with regenerative stem cells, there is finally a safe and effective option that will allow you to get back to doing the things you enjoyed before being hindered by your chronic pain.
What are stem cells?
Stem cells then seek out inflammation and degeneration and go to that location to begin repairing tissue. Stem cells have been shown to help repair muscle, bone, cartilage and tendons. We use umbilical cord derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells (Wharton’s Jelly) which come from FDA regulated cord banks. They are specialized cells that are able to receive signals from the other cells in your body and trigger your body’s natural healing process.
How do stem cells know where to go and what to grow?
When our tissue is damaged it gives off things called Cytokines. Cytokines act like little beacons to attract the stem cells to that tissue. In fact, we have heard of numerous instances when a patient has a Stem Cell procedure done and another area of their body also heals.
How long do results last?
Because stem cells are regenerative, it actually creates new tissue. This means it does not “wear off” like cortisone or other shots you may have received. Research shows that results can last for many years, however, results will also vary from person to person and depend on a variety of factors including other pre-existing conditions, diet, exercise, lifestyle choices, etc.
Are stem cells safe?
Absolutely! The stem cells we use must meet the following criteria before we will use them:
- Donors are pre-screened through medical record review and evaluation of pre-natal tests.
- The Medical Director at our lab, who is a licensed physician, confirms eligibility of the donor through:
- Behavioral risk assessment
- physical assessment
- Donor medical history
- Review of blood test results
- Communicable disease testing
- Behavioral risk assessment
At the time of recovery, cultures of the tissue are taken and grown out for evaluation. Discussions with physicians and /or the donor mother are conducted to identify circumstances that may lead to the exclusion of the donor or donated tissue. The Medical Director completes a comprehensive review of every donor record and the results are used to determine that the donor suitability criteria at the time of tissue recovery have been met and that the tissue is acceptable for therapeutic use.
