“WHAT ARE STEM CELLS AND HOW DO THEY FUNCTION?”
What are stem cells?
Stem cells are the building blocks of the human body. A stem cell can not only replicate itself, but it can also turn into other specialized cells, such as blood cells, skin cells, bone cells, cartilage cells, and just about any cell in the human body.
Everyone already has hundreds of millions of stem cells in their body. They’re the reason that your skin is completely replaced every 35 days. Stem cells cause your hair and nails to grow. They’re replacing the worn out and damaged cells in your organs and tissues throughout your body. And they’re creating 2 million new red blood cells for you every second!
It’s been said that you wouldn’t live for more than just a few hours if you had no stem cells.
Your Body’s Built-In Repair System
Your body has its own incredible repair systems. When you fall down and skin your knee, your body sends stem cells to the injured area to begin repairing and replacing the damaged skin and tissue. When you break a bone, your body sends stem cells to help the broken bones grow back together.
For almost any kind of damage or injury, your body has the tools and systems in place to make the needed repairs to keep you going. It is sending your own stem cells (along with a few other special cells) to repair the damage.
But as we age, our body produces fewer stem cells on its own. And the stem cells that it does produce, are just not quite as “healthy and strong” as when you were young. This is the reason why a baby’s skin is always so soft and smooth compared to a more “mature” adult.
As a result, when our “more mature” joints are injured or damaged from arthritis or degeneration, we just don’t have as many stem cells to repair the damage as when we were young, nor are the stem cells as strong and healthy to make the repairs. This is why most of the recent advancements in regenerative medicine have focused on using stem cells and growth factors from healthy young umbilical cord tissue.
How Do Stem Cells Function?
Stem cells have the ability to travel to injured tissues, a phenomenon called homing. This occurs by injury/disease signals that are released from the distressed cells/tissue. Once stem cells arrive at the site of injury they go to these “distress signals” and dock on the cells to begin performing their job.
- Serve as a cell replacement where they change into the needed cell type such as a muscle or cartilage cell. This is ideal for traumatic injuries and orthopedic indications (damaged joints, degenerated cartilage, etc.).
- They do not express specific HLAs which help them avoid the immune system. In fact, mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) do this so well that they are in clinical studies for “graft vs host disease” and have already been approved for pediatric graft vs host disease in Canada. These studies and data support the notion that the cells are safe to use as an “off the shelf” product.
- They dock onto an adjacent cell and release proteins called growth factors, cytokines and chemokines. These proteins and growth factors help control many aspects of the repair process:
- They control the immune system and regulate inflammation which is a key mediator of diseases of aging (joint degeneration) and autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis.
- Help to increase new blood vessel formation which helps damaged tissues receive proper blood flow and the correct nutrients needed to heal.
Provide trophic support for surrounding tissues and facilitate endogenous repair. This works great when used for orthopedics (joints and bones) as it causes signals to be released which will activate your own stem cells to repair a damaged knee for instance. In the case of diabetes, it may help any remaining beta cells to reproduce or function optimally.
As research continues, the field of regenerative medicine and stem cells continues to evolve into the greatest hope for those suffering from injuries and degenerative disease and looking for methods to improve their quality of life.

Amniotic Stem Cell & Regenerative Therapy Procedures Can Help Treat A Variety Of Ailments
Amniotic Stem Cell & Regenerative Therapy Procedures is one of the newest and most cutting-edge therapies for chronic joint pain.
Stem cells are the building blocks of all tissue, cartilage and bone and they are found inside everyone’s bodies. When you are injured, your body sends stem cells to the injured area to repair it. As the body ages, it has fewer and less potent stem cells, so when joints are injured or suffering from arthritis or degeneration, we just don’t have as many stem cells to repair the damage as when we’re young.
Amniotic-derived regenerative cell therapy offers patients 3 essential properties that enhance the ability to heal and restore joint health:
- A high concentration of regenerative cells
- Hyaluronic Acid for joint lubrication and movement
- Anti-inflammatory cytokines and cellular growth factors essential for building new joint tissue
Since amniotic-derived regenerative cell therapy is not derived from embryonic stem cells or fetal tissue, there are no ethical issues with the treatment. The amniotic regenerative cell therapy consists of an injection directly into the painful area.
The therapy has the potential to actually alter the course of the condition and not simply mask the pain. This therapy has significant potential for those in pain, and could actually repair structural problems while treating pain and inflammation simultaneously.
When the amniotic cell material is obtained, it comes from consenting donors who have undergone elective c-sections. The fluid is processed at an FDA regulated lab, and is checked for a full slate of diseases per FDA guidelines. The amniotic material has been used over 100,000 times in the US with no adverse events reported. It acts as an immunologically privileged material, meaning it has NOT been shown to cause any rejection reaction in the body. This means there is no “graft versus host” problem.

Regenerative Medicine For Cervical Pain, DJD & Arthritis
The bones of the neck are made up of several cervical vertebrae. Between each vertebrae sits a cartilage disc that acts as a cushion, allowing the neck bones to move smoothly without friction. When cartilage starts to deteriorate or becomes damaged, cervical neck pain and stiffness can occur. Cervical neck pain from an injury, inflammation, or disc degeneration can become chronic and increasingly difficult to treat.
Regenerative medicine has revolutionized treatment options for those suffering from chronic neck pain. Stem Cell & Regenerative Therapy uses Stem Cells to target the painful areas, help recharge the immune system, and greatly reduce inflammation. This allows the body to heal itself naturally and quickly. Many patients have been able to avoid the risks of surgery and medication with our non-invasive, in-office procedures.The rehab time to full activity can be as little as a few weeks to 2 to 3 months.
Regenerative Medicine For Shoulder Injuries
Sports activities that require repeating overhead movements like lifting weights, swimming, throwing or pitching, and swinging of the arms put a lot of strain on the shoulder. Even regular, everyday activities can damage the shoulder such as gardening, hanging curtains, or even scrubbing the floors or walls. Often, injury to the shoulder is difficult to heal, and can easily become a recurring problem, even if the immediate pain has subsided. Once ligaments and tissues have been damaged, scar tissue and inflammation can continue to form and build. It is also common for the same injury to reappear, and flare up at later times.
Sports or other injury to the shoulder can now be treated with non-invasive, regenerative medicine procedures like Stem Cell Therapy. This is a revolutionary treatment option that has helped many patients avoid prescription medications, steroid injections, and even surgery.
Regenerative Medicine for Back Pain
At Superior Healthcare we specialize in back pain treatment. We have pioneered the industry’s latest proven alternatives to surgery and steroids. Our in-office, same-day procedures will alleviate your back pain regardless of the cause.

Many patients with tennis elbow run away from surgery and steroid injections. At Superior Healthcare, we offer an effective, non-invasive alternative to steroid injections and surgery. Our procedures treat all the underlying damages that cause the elbow pain.
Regenerative Medicine for Wrist Arthritis and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Despite the risks involved, many have tried prescription pain medications, steroid injections, and even surgery to relieve their pain. Now there are advanced, non-surgical techniques to reduce inflammation and pain. Stem Cell & Regenerative Cell Therapy takes healing cells from Amniotic Fluid that contains a high concentration of immune cells, healing and growth factors that help not only heal your inflamed joint but also helps to regenerate tissue. This is a same-day, in-office procedure that helps your body heal the arthritis in your hands and wrists naturally, without the need for surgery
Regenerative Medicine for ACL or PCL Injury
The posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) and anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) are both major ligaments providing strength and stability within the knee joint. Ligaments are thick bands of tissue that connect bones. Injuries to these connective tissues are painful, debilitating, and have historically been a challenge to treat and heal. In the past, these kinds of injuries could cause what was considered permanent damage to the knee joints.

Adult Stem Cell Therapy For Systemic Diseases
Autologous stem cell therapy (often referred to as “Adult Stem Cell Therapy”) is able to address many medical problems such as these organically, at the cellular level. Clinical treatments are focused on the root cause, not just symptoms.
Most people don’t realize that your body is already full of stem cells that are circulating around in your blood and being stored in various places around your body. Without these stem cells in your body, you would only live for about one hour.
All of the cells in your body are dying off and being replaced with new ones every minute of every day. In most cases, the new replacement cells are being created from the stem cells that are already in your body. The stem cells in your bone marrow are creating about 2 million new red blood cells every second! When you fall and skin your knee, your body sends millions of stem cells to repair the damage in just a few days.
But as we age, our body produces fewer and fewer stem cells on its own, so it’s barely able to keep up with the body’s natural degeneration process that comes with aging. It’s even less capable of generating enough additional stem cells to fight severe diseases on top of that.
In an Adult Stem Cell Therapy procedure, the stem cells are collected from the untapped reservoirs of stored stem cells in your own body to be used in fighting these chronic diseases. In most cases, this will involve a minor liposuction procedure to extract the stem cells that are stored in the adipose tissue (layer of fatty tissue) in your abdomen. (Don’t worry, your body will replace the extracted stem cells with new ones.)
The extraction process typically takes 25-30 minutes and only requires local numbing.
The stem cells will then typically be injected back into your body intravenously where they will be directed to go to work fighting the diseased cells and damaged tissue.
Our procedure is FDA compliant with the FDA Code of Federal Regulations Title 21 Part 1271. We meet the FDA regulations by providing a same-day procedure done entirely in a medical office with a patient’s own cells, which are then immediately delivered back to that patient.
Answers To Your Questions About Stem Cell Therapy
Is Regenerative Cell Therapy safe?
Absolutely! Our Regenerative Cell Therapy is an extremely safe treatment option. More than 10,000 injections have been performed without a single report of adverse side effects. Regenerative cell treatments have been used by ophthalmologists & plastic surgeons for over 20 years now. All donors go through a rigorous screening process Our practice was built on a commitment to the highest standards of patient safety and quality of service!
Is more than one treatment needed?
Not every person is the same. Obviously that possibility exists and that’s why we take our patients through our advanced assessment so we can carefully determine if you are one of those special cases. It is important to understand that once a joint is repaired, there would be no need for further treatment unless a new injury occurred or over time, that joint degenerated again. Many patients are experiencing major relief from our Regenerative Cell Therapy after only ONE treatment!
What determines the outcome of my Regenerative Cell Therapy?
Various factors will determine the outcome of your Regenerative Cell Therapy treatment, such as the extent of damage, disease and the location being treated. Most people respond well to this therapy option and experience relief from pain in just a short period of time. For instance, this therapy has been known provide full relief to patients after only one treatment.
Is there anything else I can do to increase the effectiveness of my therapy?
Yes! Our treatment plans are comprehensive. Not only will we provide you with the most cutting-edge treatment options, but we can also assist you through rehabilitation. Following the custom program created for your specific needs will thoroughly increase the effectiveness.
How much downtime should I expect after Regenerative Cell Therapy?
While each patient and situation is unique, there’s virtually no downtime at all.
How long does the repair process take?
Generally, the repair process begins immediately and the good news is that it can continue to repair for up to eight additional months from the date of the initial procedure.
How often does the procedure work?
Regenerative Cell Therapy has amazing results on a wide range of conditions. Most people generally feel significant, if not complete relief from this non-surgical procedure. In one recent study they found that in a group of over 60 participants the average pain scale went from an 8 to a 0 in just 5 weeks for all the participants!
