How does the regenerative medicine work at Stem Cell Capital clinics?
Regenerative Medicine – tissue engineering – regenerates and repairs tissues like cartilage, ligament, tendon, ligament, cartilage and bone.
The conventional ways to treat the pain of arthritis, soft tissue injuries, tendon, cartilage or ligament damage cured only the symptoms and the patient would get temporary pain relief. On the other hand, regenerative medicine works by rejuvenating human cells, tissues or organs in order to restore normal body function.
Also, the traditional methods never brought 100% recovery in ligaments or tendon. Steroid injections can only provide pain relief but heal the underlying issue.
The stem cell or regenerative therapies help tissues to heal by using body’s building blocks like platelets.
Stem Cell and its types:
Starting as a blank slate, the stem cells are made up of the human body’s bone marrow. The good thing about them is they can differentiate into specialized cells according to the area in which they are placed.
Types of Stem Cells: Unlimited or embryonic stem cells, which can literally turn into any type of body cell. The other type is dubbed termed limited or adult stem cells.
The embryonic stem cells can be replicated outside human body and have the potential to treat several human diseases. Adult stem cells on the other hand have limited potential and require freezing or transplantation at the same time into the body.
At Stem Cell Capital, we do not deal with unlimited stem cells. Rather our clinics only use the stem cells which exist in these two varieties: Hematopoietic Stem Cells and Mesenchymal Stem Cells.
The Hematopoietic Stem Cells are found in human bone marrow and the Mesenchymal Stem Cells are extracted from adipose tissue, placenta, lung, bone marrow and blood. Both types can turn into most of the cells in human body.
How mainstream is the Regenerative Medicine is?
During the past 10 years, the regenerative medicine has proven to be a game changer. We have seen a lot of new regenerative medicine stem cell treatments entering clinical practice. The usage of regenerative medicine for management of pain in Arthritis or sports injuries has increased tremendously.
Different procedures used at Stem Cell Capital:
Insurance coverage of Regenerative Medicine procedures:
The regenerative medicine procedures are currently not covered by insurance. Regenerative medicine is a Non covered insurance treatment and the Cost is completely patient funded.
