27 Nov Stem Cell Therapy FAQs
In the past two decades, there has been much controversy over the efficacy and use of stem cell therapy. Luckily for us, researchers, doctors, and scientists all over the world never quit and today stem cell therapy is very popular and thought to be a major key to the future of regenerative medical treatment. Although stem cell therapy has many uses and benefits for all kinds of different ailments, some people are still wary when they think of stem cell therapy.
The Regenerative Stem Cell Institute stem cell therapy in Chicago encourages patients to ask our clinicians and doctors as many questions as needed in order to become familiar and comfortable with the stem cell procedure before deciding if the treatment is right for you. Patients should feel comfortable and confident before proceeding with any procedure and stem cell therapy is no different. We are here to answer any questions you may have and below, you may find some commonly asked questions from our patients that may provide assistance in determining if stem cell therapy is right for you.
WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM STEM CELL THERAPY
Stem cell therapy in Chicago at the Regenerative Stem Cell Institute has performed over 9000 stem cell procedures and patients from every walk of life have experienced the benefits. Patients suffering from orthopedic injuries and degenerative bone conditions have benefitted greatly as inflammation is reduced and new tissue and overall healing of the damaged or diseased tissue is stimulated.
Neurodegenerative disorders, cardiovascular disease, autoimmune diseases, and even those looking for anti-aging benefits are all qualified candidates for treatment. Research and clinical trials have shown patients who receive stem cell therapy have healed faster and felt better overall. Patients of all ages are able to benefit from stem cell therapy.
IS STEM CELL THERAPY SAFE
Yes, stem cell therapy that is properly performed at a qualified clinic like the stem cell clinic Chicago has been proven to be safe, effective, and far less risky than many prescription drugs! Similar to all medical procedures, there are risks involved in receiving stem cell treatment, but the benefits far outweigh these risks. Anytime the skin is punctured in a medical procedure there is a risk of infection, but that risk is much lower with stem cell therapy because the procedure only entails a puncture from the stem cell injection.
Additionally, stem cells that are harvested from a different person carry the risk of a patient’s body rejecting the new cells and causing infection. In comparison to other medical treatments for serious injury or disease like surgery and medication regimens, stem cell therapy in Chicago is far less invasive and carries much less risk.
WHAT KIND OF STEM CELLS DO YOU USE
At the Regenerative Stem Cell Institute adipose stem cell therapy, stem cells are harvested from a patient’s own adipose or fat tissue. Adipose-derived stem cells are a type of adult stem cells that have the ability to differentiate into osteoblasts (bone cells), muscle cells, cartilage cells, and tendon tissues. Adipose stem cells are the most commonly found and used stem cells in our bodies and are easily and safely harvested from a patient’s adipose tissue.
