What are Stem Cells?
Stem cells are undifferentiated cells (not changed) that have the capacity to change into any specific cell type in the body. These cells, once delivered to an area of injury, can readily change into the cell type that needs to be replaced. At True Healing & Wellness Institute, we use umbilical cord tissue, which provides an abundant supply of stem cells (MSC’s) avoiding the need to harvest stem cells through invasive procedures such as liposuction or bone marrow aspiration. There is evidence that shows stem cells from umbilical cords are more robust than those from other sources and does not require long periods of down time for patients. This therapy is combined with your own growth factors to program the ultimate healing potential of joints/tendons/ligaments/muscles.
