What do the stem cells do for my knee?
The occurrence of knee pain is often caused by the cartilage between joints wearing down over
time or from injury. Stem cell therapy in the cartilage between joints in the knee causes
regeneration of the cartilage cells, restoring the natural cushion between the bones.
What can I expect during my appointment?
At your initial appointment, one of our physicians will do an examination and determine which
areas would be most beneficial for you to get stem cell therapy treatments.
What does the treatment involve?
The procedure is a small injection of stem cells to stimulate regrowth in the damaged area.
Many patients say they feel a slight discomfort at the injection site, but overall the procedure is a
In which ways are stem cells distributed?
There are four methods used to inject stem cells into the body: IM (intramuscular), IVP
(intravenous push), IV infusion, IA (intra-articular), SQ (subcutaneous) Each therapy plan and
method is determined by your personal needs after your examination.
When can I get back to my everyday activities?
Low-intensity daily activities may be resumed the day after, but we recommend you rest for the
first 24-48 hours. More strenuous physical activities, should be refrained from for four weeks after the procedure.
When will I start to see my results?
Often, our patients start seeing noticeable results in just three weeks after their treatment.
Maximum results can occur in as little as six months after the initial injection.
How do I know if I’m a good candidate for the treatment?
Our physicians will do a complete examination on-site to determine which areas, if any, would
benefit from the stem cell therapy treatment.
Where do the stem cells come from?
The stem cells are an all-natural compound found in the human body and are created for the
sole purpose of regenerating broken down cells in our system. All stem cell therapy treatments
at our facility are done with umbilical cord stem cells. These cells are harvested from the
umbilical cord blood voluntarily donated by healthy mothers after the live birth of their healthy child.
