Is Stem Cell Therapy Safe?

One of the questions we are asked most often by people who are considering using our services at the Stemwell Clinic is simply this: Is stem cell therapy safe?

It is never possible to guarantee with 100 per cent certainty that any medical procedure is completely safe. However, extensive research – added to our considerable expertise – has led us to the conclusion that stem cell therapy is indeed safe for the overwhelming majority of patients.

There are several reasons why we are able to reassure you that stem cell treatment is one of the safest options open to you if you are troubled by one of a wide range of physical and neurological conditions.

  • It’s non-invasive: When we apply stem cells to a patient, this is carried out by targeted injection to an affected area, or intravenously. This is far less invasive than some more traditional surgical treatments that might be applied to your condition.
  • Stem cells are not a blood product: This means that you do not need to go through Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA) or phenotypic matching, which are required when using blood products.
  • It’s applied by experts: One of the most reassuring aspects of stem cell therapy at the Stemwell Clinic is that it is delivered by a highly trained team of qualified healthcare professionals. You are in good hands with the extensively knowledgeable operatives at our practice.


Stem cells are produced naturally in the human body. They are undifferentiated, or blank, cells that have the potential to develop into more than 200 different types of tissue, including bone, blood vessels, and muscles.

Their ability to work in the regeneration of healthy tissues, allied to their anti-inflammatory qualities, underpins their potential to support healing and improve the quality of life for people suffering from a wide range of conditions.

The harvesting of stem cells is also safe and ethical. At the Stemwell Clinic, we have found the most powerful types of stem cells are found in the umbilical cord tissue of healthy full-term donors. Once they have been harvested and analyzed, they can be introduced to a patient and go to work creating the healthy tissue the body needs.

Is stem cell therapy safe? While it is never possible to guarantee complete safety regarding any form of treatment, the answer in this instance is a confident Yes.
