What Are Stem Cells?

Stem cells have been described, simply but accurately, as the building blocks of the body. They are “blank” cells that have not yet been allocated a particular purpose. This makes them valuable to medical science, because they have the potential adapt to generate healthy tissue that a body needs.

Where Do Stem Cells Come From?

There are many places in the body where stem cells are generated. However, at the Stemwell Clinic, we have found that the cells that offer the most promising outcomes through stem cell therapy are to be found in the umbilical cord tissue of full-term, healthy volunteer donors.

How Do Stem Cells Work?

When stem cell therapy is applied to a patient, the cells go to work. They stimulate the generation of healthy tissue, modulate your immune system, and reduce inflammation. The robust stem cells we collect may be used on their own, or in combination with the patient’s own bone marrow stem cells.

How is Stem Cell Therapy Applied?

There are two ways in which the stem cells we have harvested and selected may be delivered to the areas where they will do most good. The first is by targeted injection to a part of the body that is in most need of stem cell treatment. The second is to introduce them to the patient intravenously.

What Happens After Stem Cell Therapy?

Stem cell treatment can support healing and improve the quality of life for patients with a wide variety of conditions and injuries. And each patient presents with individual symptoms. As a result, it is not possible to put a strict time-frame on how long it might be before the effects of stem cell therapy are noticeable. Some patients feel the benefit within 48 hours; for others, it can take more than six months.
