Stem cells are unassigned cells that have the capability to divide and replicate into various cell types. Not only does this mean that the cell can multiply, but also that it can turn into different types of tissues. This allows stem cells to replace or regenerate old and damaged cells which the regrow cartilage.
We use stem cells to regenerate and stimulate the growth of new cartilage, with no downtime or sedation. This eliminates the need for a knee replacement and the risks that come along with surgery.
We get used to having symptoms and we think that’s just our baseline or that we’re “getting old.” Typically, in healthcare, we’re managing disease and managing chronic illnesses, whereas stem cell therapy regenerates our bodies back to where they were before.
Blood is collected from the umbilical cord, analyzed, and the stem cells are separated.
The stem cells are stored and kept at the perfect temperature and sent as needed.
The stem cells are injected into the joint by one of our highly trained providers.
Once injected, the stem cells will attach to your cartilage and stimulate regeneration. Even patients with bone on bone arthritis can benefit greatly. When stem cells are infused, they will travel through the blood stream. They know where to go because of a paracrine signal that is given off by damage or inflamed cells.
Allure uses umbilical stem cells provided by an FDA tested lab as well as the fat from your own fat tissue. When you come in for your free consultation, we will decide which option is the best for you based on what is being treated.
Patients may need multiple treatments depending on the severity of the condition. Degenerative conditions such as many auto immune conditions may need treatment as much as once every 6 months to a year depending on severity.
Patients typically experience an immediate affect because stem cells and PRP are known to be very anti-inflammatory. This could occur within seven days of treatment, and usually last up to 14 days. Joints, on average, will begin to feel relief between 3-6 months. Regeneration will continue for up to 24 months, and results have been shown to last for 5-7 years. Patients typically have 30% to 50% improvement from baseline.
