The Process

How do you get started?
If you have never contacted us before, you will typically call us to schedule a free consultation (refer to the bottom of this page for contact information).  This consultation can be over the phone or in person, mostly likely the former, since most people’s time is precious.  During this consultation, we can spend anywhere from 10 minutes to 1 hour explaining to you what cellular therapies are, what they can do for you, what the various treatment options are, their costs and other logistics, and what happens before, during and after treatment.  If you decide that treatment is for you, we will guide you through a customized therapy plan to determine if and where cells are extracted from and how and where those cells are reintroduced into your problem areas.
On treatment day, you will with come to our clinic.  Depending on what you are coming for, there might be some preliminary blood work, X-rays, ultra-sound or MRIs that you need to bring with you (typically obtained from outside sources).
Our friendly clinical staff will then get you admitted, and lead you to a treatment room where preparations for treatment will be performed.  This includes numbing the area(s) to be treated.  The physician will then come in and discuss any options with you, answering any last minute questions you may have.
If there is cell extraction required, you will be prepared for the bone marrow aspiration or liposuction procedure.  If only a blood draw is called for, the corresponding preparations will be made, a much less involved process.  If you elected amniotic or umbilical cord cells, we will prepare the cells for you.
Once the cells to be re-injected have been extracted.  You will rest for around 30 minutes.  During that time, our staff will prepare the solution to re-inject, cleaning and separating the cells needed, concentrating them, mixing in any pain medication, and setting up all the relevant equipment.  The solution to be injected depends on your needs, with 3 levels of service in increasing cost, potency, invasiveness and procedure/recovery time. This enables you to control a number of the key parameters.
Subsequent treatment is straightforward, with one or more injections in the targeted area(s).  This could be a simple one-time injection in a specific spot, or a set of 10 to 15 injections covering an area.
The entire procedure occurs in our state of the art “Outpatient Clinic” and typically happens in less than two hours. It is simple, straightforward and effective for most patients.
In some cases, 3-6 treatments sessions spaced a few weeks apart are recommended to fully address the problem.
