Am I a good candidate for Stem Cells? 

Every person is different. However, individuals with joint problems, injuries to tendons, ligaments and chronic pain can all be candidates. In order to determine if Stem Cells are right for you, you would need to make a consultation appointment with our medical staff. During the consultation there will be a medical history, physical exam, review of x-rays, MRIs and other studies.

This includes, IV Infusion, Stem Cell procedure, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and medical follow-ups. 

 

Where do we get Stem Cells from?

The team at Dr. Stem Cell uses mesenchymal stem cells and exosomes because they help regenerate tissues such as tendons, ligaments, muscles, and cartilage.
