Below is a list of general answers to some common initial questions regarding Stem Cell Therapy. If you have further questions or would like to discuss your eligibility, please feel free to contact us and consult with a Stemedix Care Coordinator.
No. Although Stemedix makes no claim of complete cures, significant improvements and long term stability is a goal that Stemedix is continuously trying to improve and achieve with each patient.
Success is unique to each individual based on specific conditions and improvements of what that patient considers to be an improvement and success for their condition. For example, a success measure may be able to regain strength in their right arm or perhaps improvement in bladder control. Each patient is unique in their degree of symptoms which then equates to different degrees of success.
A board-certified physician will perform each treatment, which means that you will be treated by a US certified medical doctor who meets the levels of excellence demanded by our patients.
Yes, we accept patients suffering from these conditions worldwide. With Stemedix, each patient is personally hand held through the process by our trained Care Coordinators to understand what is to be expected, what are the next steps, and individually tailored a treatment plan around their condition with approved therapy by the assigned doctor. Your wellness and convenience is our focus.
Autologous adult stem cells are derived from the same individual’s body. Adult stem cells are undifferentiated cells, found throughout the human body, that form after growth & development. Stem cells are the fundamental elements of life that can be found in all tissue of the body; connective tissues, muscle tissues, nervous tissues, and epithelial tissues. In living tissue, the main purpose of adult stem cells is to use cell division to repair and replace dying cells in order to regenerate damaged tissue. Adipose (fat) tissue has the highest concentration of stem cells and can produce billions of cells that will repair, replenish, and rejuvenate one’s body immediately.
Adipose (fat) tissue has the highest concentration of stem cells and can produce billions of cells that will repair, replenish, and rejuvenate one’s body immediately. These cells are autologous which means they come from your own body.
Found in the bone marrow aspirate of the hip are hundreds of thousands of newly created hematopoietic stem cells. These cells are active and capable of forming new cells in place of diseased or dying tissue.
Allogeneic stem cell therapy is a treatment that uses umbilical cord derived cells to provide a powerful approach in the management of a wide variety of conditions including sports related injuries and many orthopedic issues. Mesenchymal stem cells are considered undifferentiated cells that have the ability to replicate many tissues of the body.
Procedures will last between 2-5 hours depending on what type of stem cell treatment is being administered. This is a same-day (outpatient) procedure and does not require an overnight hospital stay.
Once your records, blood work, and intake form are carefully reviewed by the physicians, a customized treatment plan will be suggested for your condition.
We have a process in place to receive the necessary information to review and approve from each potential patient. Once the patient is approved by a board-certified physician, we can typically have an appointment date available within 2-4 weeks.
Yes, any medical requirements will be discussed and planned before your trip with your Care Coordinator. We provide transportation to and from the facilities, accessible hotel rooms, and personal transportation if necessary. Additional charges may apply if the patient is bedridden.
Yes, and in most cases this is true with options such as Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. However, please discuss treatments you are having outside of Stemedix with your Care Coordinator so we can review and ensure there are no conflicts with your treatment plan. This also includes medications you are currently taking.
Stem cells have the ability to self-renew, or divide, to replenish dying tissue of specialized cell types. They can be considered our own built-in repair systems that regenerate cells damaged by disease, injury, and everyday wear-and-tear. Once stem cells are administered to the body, they respond to inflammatory signals secreted by damage cells. The stem cells have the potential to repair and replace countless cells in the body. Stem cell therapy is a treatment designed to help the body’s natural repair kit work more effectively. Although damaged cells cannot be fully reversed, these treatments can help manage your symptoms and reduce the effects of further damage.
Yes, as stem cell research is constantly advancing, conditions are progressively being treated. Please contact your Care Coordinator to inquire or complete the contact form below.
The side effects of stem cell therapy are minimal and may include irritation, such as soreness, swelling, or redness at the procedure site. In some cases, patients with sensitivities to mild anesthesia may experience nausea, vomiting, headache, or minor fever usually lasting less than 24 hours. No negative long-term effects to this procedure have been reported.
Each stem cell therapy treatment is unique to our patients and their conditions. Therefore, no guarantee can be made of what results will be achieved or how soon results can be felt. However, patients may begin to experience results within a week with fuller effects felt within 4 to 8 weeks. Depending on the severity of the patient’s condition and if multiple treatments are needed, it may be 6-9 months for results. Research has shown that in most cases, patients reported a decrease in medication intake.
When considering multiple treatments for a patient, a thorough look at their condition and their history is important. While newly diagnosed patients may see results from just one stem cell treatment, others with a more progressed condition may require multiple treatments before noticeable improvements occur.
The final day of your treatment will be a follow-up appointment with the physician administering your treatment. Depending on your treatment method, your physician will review with you any necessary additional next steps or additional antibiotics that may be prescribed. Once arriving home, continue any regularly scheduled appointments with your primary and/or specialized physicians.
The Stemedix team encourages a good support system not only from our staff, but from family and loves ones as well. Each room can comfortably sleep up to four people. Additional rooms needed will be at the expense of the patient.
Health insurance in the United States does not provide coverage for this procedure.
Stem Cells used during treatment come from your own body. Stemedix does not harvest embryonic stem cells and is therefore not related to any controversial debate.
