Stem Cell Therapy Q & A

What are stem cells?

Stem cells are the building blocks of every cell and tissue of the body. Every specialized cell, whether bone, heart, or nerve cell, began as a stem cell. Stem cells naturally regenerate, or reproduce themselves, creating what are called daughter cells.

Daughter cells may stay stem cells and continuing generating more stem cells or may develop into specialized cells to regenerate or grow new tissues. Stem cells are the only cells of the body that can perform this function.

What are different kinds of stem cells?

Both human and animal stem cells have been used in research in order to develop regenerative processes to utilize the power of stem cells. However, there are two main types of stem cells currently used in stem cell therapies:

  • Embryonic stem cells which are extracted from human embryos
  • Adult stem cells which are taken from adult human tissues

Adult stem cells are often taken from the bone marrow and fat tissue of the person receiving the therapy and then reproduced in a lab.

Embryonic stem cells multiply at a fast rate and can differentiate into any type of specialized cell. Adult stem cells have a slower rate and have limits on the types of cells they can become.

What is stem cell therapy?

Stem cell therapy is an alternative, revolutionary therapy that utilizes the natural ability of the stem cell to regenerate and develop into new tissue. Using either embryonic or adult stem cells, stem cells are reproduced in a laboratory setting. These cells are manipulated into specializing into certain types of cells, including:

  • Heart
  • Skin
  • Blood
  • Brain and nerve
  • Bone, tendon, or muscle

Stem cells are then injected into areas of injury or degenerated tissue. This creates new cell growth, and tissue repair naturally takes place.

What conditions can be treated with stem cell therapy?

Dr. Wdowin and his team use their expertise in stem cell therapy to treat conditions caused by tissue damage, both due to injury and to natural effects of aging. It is an invaluable tool in the field of regenerative medicine

Some conditions treated using stem cell therapy include:

  • Aging skin, including lines and wrinkles
  • Dementia
  • Cognitive decline
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Chronic pain
  • Cancer, including blood and skin cancer
  • Bone, cartilage, and tendon injury
  • Joint problems, especially the knee
  • Heart disease or damage from a heart attack
  • Insulin resistance or diabetes

Stem cell therapy is often used along with hormone replacement therapy. A proper balance of hormones increases the natural production of stem cells, increasing the body’s ability to regenerate, heal itself, and fight the impact of aging.
