Regenerative cell therapies are much simpler and far less invasive than surgical procedures. Our comprehensive process begins with a thorough review and examination to ensure you are a good candidate for the stem cell therapy you desire.
If we feel that you are a good candidate for the stem cell procedure, you will then meet with the nursing team and the physician together to review the procedure. We encourage you to ask as many questions as possible to best understand our approach and our reasoning.
Comprehensive Orthopedic Consultation : For orthopedic procedures, you will receive a comprehensive consultation with our surgeon, who will evaluate your injury and treatment history. In the case of an injury for which you have had previous surgeries or treatments, we will explore, in-depth, the course of treatment and any applicable test results that may affect the outcome of therapy.
Comprehensive Aesthetic Consultation : For aesthetic procedures, you will receive a comprehensive consultation with our plastic surgeon, who will evaluate and discuss your areas of concern and your treatment history. We will explain how the treatment will proceed and you will leave with a thorough understanding of the recommended procedures.
Most patients choose to incorporate a pre-procedure nutritional plan and, in the case of aesthetic procedures, a skin care treatment plan, that is based on their individual needs. Our cell therapy patients may receive a complimentary consultation with our nutritionist to determine the most beneficial nutrition plan to follow before your procedure. A tailored nutrition and supplement plan will support improved and sustained outcomes and will also aid in the healing process.
2. THE PROCEDURE
During your procedure, our physicians will deliver micro-injections to the area of focus using your own concentrated cells. Introducing these cells to the injured area helps magnify and accelerate your body’s natural healing process.
Why We Use Umbilical Cord (Adult) Stem cells
A newborn’s umbilical cord contains a high concentration of viable, live Mesenchymal “adult” stem cells. Research demonstrates that mesenchymal stem cells deliver superior, predictable results to adipose-derived stem cells. As our focus is on fast and effective healing, our approach utilizes umbilical stem cells for their efficacy and safety, and without the need for additional surgical sites for cell harvest.
The stem cells are mixed with Platelet Rich Plasma from your blood, then delivered directly to the area of inflammation so they can begin the task of healing you naturally, safely, and in most cases, quickly – and often permanently.
Following your procedure, you will be given some time to rest in the office prior to going home. In most cases you will be able to return to work or your normal activities right away, though we always encourage you to listen to your body and not overdo it.
We will provide you with a personalized after-care program that is tailored to your specific needs and designed to support optimal recovery and long- term results. While most patients have few limitations following treatment, some conditions may benefit from brief restricted activity for best recovery.
Our team will outline a follow-up plan so that we can monitor your progress. Depending on your situation, this could be performed by phone, email or with a post-treatment, in-office appointment.

All stem cell treatments are performed in the comfort of our office on an outpatient basis. A typical adult stem cell procedure lasts about an hour and consists of the following three steps:
Myer’s Cocktail IV drip.
IV stem cell infusion.
Once the sample is ready, your physician will introduce the concentrated PRP and adult stem cells and growth factors mixture directly to the part of the body that needs to heal. This injection is performed by your physician under sterile conditions.
