Regenerative Medicine FAQs

Commonly asked questions about regenerative medicine using stem cells (often referred to as "stem cell therapy").

Stem cells are the basic building blocks of human tissue. They have the ability to repair, rebuild, and rejuvenate tissues throughout the body. When disease or injury strikes, stem cells respond to specific signals and set out to facilitate the healing process by differentiating into specialized cells. These specialized cells then release healing growth factors in response to the distress cell signal in an injured or pathologic area of the body required for the body's repair.

We use human cell and tissue products that are derived from the umbilical cords of healthy, full-term deliveries. Our products do not contain any embryonic or fetal tissue. They are minimally processed to preserve what's valuable. Then they are cryogenically frozen in an FDA-registered lab. We adhere to the highest standards for handling by storing the stem cells in cryotanks in our office so that when it's time for a patient to receive them, we ensure optimal vivacity of our product.

Our products are rigorously tested to FDA guidelines in our CLIA registered lab. Thousands of patients have used our lab, Predictive's, tissue allografts with no adverse effects. Some patients have experienced some stiffness in the joint from the medication process or possible redness around the injection site. This is just your body's natural healing process hard at work!

Comprehensive medical and social histories of the donors are obtained and reviewed. All tissues are procured, processed and tested in accordance with FDA requirements to minimize potential risks of disease transmission to recipients. Infectious disease testing is performed at a registered laboratory in accordance with the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of 1988 (CLIA) and 42 CFR part 493.

Our office participates with all major insurances, but, unfortunately, they have chosen to not cover this type of regenerative medicine at this time. However, the cost of our procedure is typically less than most deductibles or what would spent on medications. And, regenerative medicine is a noninvasive procedure, with long-lasting results, not an invasive surgery or a medication that will mask symptoms.

The cost of a regenerative medicine therapy in our office depends upon the patient's specific condition and recommendation, but here is the good news...in the long run regenerative medicine could actually SAVE you money. The regenerative medicine that we offer encourages your body to repair, rebuild, and rejuvenate tissues throughout the body. We have made this therapy affordable and we are happy to also offer financing.

Depending upon the severity of the injury and your personal health, recovery time can vary. Your physician will be able to provide you with more information regarding your recovery timeline. However, some patients begin noticing results within 6 weeks – 3 months. It could be something like, "Hey, I just walked up the stairs one foot in front of the other!" or "Wow, I slept great last night!"

Therapy in our office is a simple in and out process. Appointments are 30 minutes long and you can drive yourself to and from the appointment as our procedure is not a surgery and no medication is administered. Our staff will explain the procedure in depth after your consultation.

The answer is a resounding YES! If you are able to bend your knee at all, you still have tissue in your joint. The human cell and tissue products we use will seek out the inflammation in your joint(s) and allow your body to begin regenerating and repairing that tissue.

I had an injection in my left hip. Went from going up the stairs leaning heavily on the handrail to walking up easily within 3 months, and back to hiking!! I would definitely recommend this procedure to anyone with cartilage degeneration but don't wait until it's all gone!

My wrists have been a source of pain and weakness since I had ganglion cysts removed from both 30 years ago. Typing was agony, they fell asleep, always cold and numb - couldn't open jars, etc. raking one day in the garden sent me to the ortho dr with excruciating pain - X-ray and MRI showed major joint deterioration....

Chronic care of Richmond has relieved the pain in my knee that I had been going to get fluid drained and shots that only lasted a couple of weeks. I was told that I needed to have my knee replaced because it was bone on bone but I was not old enough so my future for the next 6 to 7 years was to keep getting fluid drain...

I had a very bad arthritic knee. had to get two to three injections yearly. Decided to have the stem cell injection, followed the instructions and I have been doing so well that I only returned for one follow up visit. No pain, great movement and I honestly believe similar results can be yours.

I attended Dr. Snyder’s hour seminar two weeks ago, scheduled a one on one consultation and signed up. Last Friday was the start of being able to become more active. Today Sunday all is well! I look forward to being able to take “long” walks again soon. I bet I’ll lose a few pounds in the process. My follow up...

The cartilage in both of my knees had eroded to the point where I could hardly walk without a cane. After talking to my doctor, he informed me that the only choice I had was to have both knees replaced. Fortunately, while browsing thru Facebook one day, I ran across this ad from Dr. Snyder offering a treatment using st...

I have been a patient of Dr. Bryant Snyder for over 5 years. Before seeing Dr. Snyder I had two prior surgeries on my lower back and my quality of life was miserable.
