Stem Cell Q & A

What are stem cells?

Stem cells are a special type of cell that are undifferentiated, meaning they aren’t assigned a specific job like heart cells or skin cells. When injected into an area of your body that’s damaged or degenerated, such as an arthritic knee joint, stem cells can morph into the type of cell necessary for healing.

Normally, stem cells migrate naturally to a place of injury in your body. Once there, they multiply into more of the cells required for healing. As an adult, you do have some stem cells that are dormant until needed, but they’re often slow to respond. Stem cell treatments accelerate your body’s natural healing response.

Where do stem cells come from?

Dr. Saxena can harvest stem cells from multiple places in your body. This includes the fat around your abdomen and from your bone marrow. In some cases, she may use donor cells.

What conditions can be treated with stem cell therapy?

Stem cell therapy has a wide breadth of applications, healing issues from injuries to burns to even cancer. Stem cells can be exceptionally helpful in issues affecting the joints, muscles, and tendons — including strains and sprains, arthritis, and tendinitis. Stem cell therapy may also help speed up post-operative recovery.

You may also benefit from stem cell therapy if you have an autoimmune condition such as lupus. A type of adult stem cells called mesenchymal stem cells have unique immunosuppressive properties and play a key role in preventing autoimmunity. Hematopoietic stem cells found in bone marrow form blood and immune cells to help you overcome the effects of autoimmune disease.

Dr. Saxena evaluates your condition and recommends the right kind of stem cell therapy if appropriate.

What are the benefits of stem cell therapy?

Stem cell therapy is a cutting-edge approach to healing that offers numerous advantages over conventional treatments. Stem cell treatments are minimally invasive and require little downtime. There’s no blood loss or incisions from which to heal.

Stem cell therapy is entirely natural, too. It takes advantage of your body’s own healing capabilities.
