Regenerative Cellular Tissue aka Stem Cells
Regenerative cellular tissue sometimes referred to as stem cells significantly reduce your need for surgery by treating your injured tissue before the damage progresses. In Jupiter, Florida, we offer regenerative cellular tissue treatment to heal the root cause of your chronic pain, whereas most treatments simply mask the pain.
What Are Stem Cells?
Stem cells are undifferentiated cells in your body and they can potentially develop into many different cell types. Here at South Florida Regenerative Medicine center, we use umbilical cord-derived mesenchymal stem cells. These cells act as your internal repair system because they are attracted to damage tissue and work to heal and regenerate tissue such as cartilage, muscles, ligaments and more. Treatment with stem cells is ideal for individuals experiencing back pain, tendonitis, ligament injuries, shoulder rotator cuff tears, tennis elbow, hip bursitis, plantar fasciitis, and other soft tissue damage.
Types of Stem Cells
Your body contains a large number of stem cells, and they reside in many areas. For treatment purposes, doctors collect samples from a few key spots. For stem cell therapy, specifically, stem cells are widely collected from adipose tissue and bone marrow. We do not practice stem cell therapy, nor do we use these types of cells.
Adipose tissue stem cell therapy and bone marrow stem cell therapy utilize stem cells harvested from your fat and your bones, respectively. Both of these samples yield older stem cells because they are the age of the patient. Adipose tissue stem cells are harvested from your fatty tissue. Since fat is a storage space for your body’s amassed toxins, you may be increasing your chances of experiencing an adverse reaction with this type of therapy.
Your bone marrow is also a viable source of stem cells, but the extraction process is painful. It involves drilling a hole into your hip bone and extracting stem cells with a large needle. Not only is this treatment excruciating, but it's an invasive surgery that increases your risk of adverse effects like an infection.
Regeneration Using Treatments Containing Stem Cells and Other Growth Factors
We use injections of Wharton's jelly-derived mesenchymal stem cells. Wharton’s jelly is a birth tissue inside umbilical cords. It contains young regenerative cells in abundance, as well as cytokines, proteins, growth factors, peptides and collagens. This regenerative cellular tissue is safe to collect and use as a therapy. The mother and child are closely monitored during a C-section birth when the umbilical cord is collected. This tissue rich in healing agents is typically regarded as medical waste.
Our treatments are minimally invasive and can be completed in-office in less than an hour as an out-patient procedure. There is no surgery, hospital stay, recovery time or prescription medication needed. Many of our clients in Jupiter, Florida and surroundings are typically able to return to work the next day or after an injection.
