Regenerative medicine is an area of healthcare that has the potential to have a positive affect on the way certain human ailments are managed. Allogeneic (donated) human cell and tissue products (HCT/Ps) are able to supplement the body’s natural healing process. With a simple in-office procedure you could improve your quality of life and potentially avoid surgery.
Research continues to show an increasing number of potential benefits from the anti inflammatory, immunomodulatory, and regenerative actions of human cell and tissue products including stem cells. Regenerative medicine treats chronic pain at its source, returning you to the things you enjoy.
Our same-day, in-office procedure utilizes umbilical cord derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells, specifically Wharton’s Jelly from FDA regulated cord banks. Mesenchymal Stem Cells, specifically Wharton’s Jelly, are specialized cells that are able to receive signals from the other cells in your body. They then seek out inflammation and degeneration and go to that location to begin repairing tissue.
Regenerative medicine has been shown to help repair muscle, bone, cartilage and tendons. Research has indicated that human cell and tissue product including stem cells, specifically Wharton’s Jelly, can benefit a wide variety of health complications and may assist in individuals living stronger, healthier lives.
Our mission is simple: Change the lives of our patients by providing an integrative, holistic approach to healing.
We help people suffering from chronic pain and many other undiagnosed syndromes and health problems.
We are passionate about caring for our patients who, until now, were not able to find answers and treatments for their underlying health issues.
Regenerative medicine through human cell and tissue products including stem cells is the future of health care and, for our patients, THE FUTURE IS NOW!

What are stem cells?
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.
What kind of stem cells do you use and where do they come from?
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.
Can the cells be rejected or can I have a reaction?
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!
How are the tissue donors screened?
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.
Is this covered by insurance?
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.
What is the cost?
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 treatment 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.
How long until I see results?
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!”
What is the treatment procedure?
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.
My doctor says I am “bone on bone” and need to have joint replacement surgery. Will regenerative medicine still help me?
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.
