Cardiovascular diseases claim more lives in the U.S. each year than all types of cancer combined, according to the American Heart Association. This threat to our health has been carefully scrutinized by scientists and medical professionals alike looking for ways to stop the toll heart disease has on our general population. As part of those efforts, Regeneris Medical is looking at the benefits of stem cell therapy and PRP in treating heart attacks and other cardiac and pulmonary conditions that can increase a person’s risk for death. The research is showing great promise in this area thus far.

Stem Cells and Cardiac Conditions

Heart failure is a blanket term used to describe reduced function of the heart muscle due to damage caused by a previous heart attack, high blood pressure or other underlying conditions. When these conditions are present, they harm the cells in the heart tissue, preventing the heart from pumping at full capacity. Reduced heart function can impact every organ and system in your body, raising your risk for a variety of diseases and even death.

Mesenchymal stem cells are used in a variety of medical and cosmetic treatments to regenerate cells and turn back the clock from both a physiological and an aesthetic standpoint. These cells have regenerative properties that stimulate the body’s healing process, promoting healthy cell turnover and triggering the natural repair of damage and disease. In the case of cardiac disease, stem cells have been shown to repair damaged cells and restore healthy cardiac function.

Conditions We Treat

There are many different conditions in which stem cells may prove beneficial:

Post Myocardial Infarction (Heart Attack)
The most common type of heart disease, myocardial infarction can result in permanent damage to the heart muscle. Use of stem cells has been shown to repair damage to cardiac tissue, reducing the risk for additional health problems in the future. The benefits may be even more pronounced if stem cell therapy is combined with the regenerative benefits of platelet-rich plasma (PRP).

Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) and Cardiomyopathy
This condition occurs when the heart does not pump as powerfully as it should, leading to shortness of breath and significant fatigue. If CHF progresses, it can create more severe and even fatal complications. Stem cell therapy and PRP offer a way to repair damaged heart muscle and mitigate the effects of CHF. The mesenchymal stem cells, which are extracted from the body’s adipose (fat) tissue, can be administered directly into the heart by injection or placed intravenously into the coronary arteries.

Angina
The pain and pressure of angina often mimic a heart attack, and while it does not typically cause permanent damage, it can place a severe strain on the heart. Stem cell therapy offers restorative healing to heart cells that can stop angina before it begins.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
This persistent condition is characterized by inflammation of the lungs that can make breathing difficult. Anti-inflammatory properties in stem cells may reduce the inflammation to improve symptoms and a patient’s quality of life overall.

Asthma
Asthma is another respiratory condition that involves inflammation of the lungs that affects breathing. In this case, sufferers may experience a tight feeling in the chest and a severe cough, as well as shortness of breath and other breathing difficulties. The anti-inflammatory benefits of stem cells may have a positive effect on this disease as well.

Benefits of Stem Cell Therapy over other Treatments

In addition to their promise in treating and managing these challenging conditions, there are advantages stem cell therapy offers over other types of treatment protocols:

  • Stem cell therapy is a natural treatment that works with the body’s healing processes
  • The procedure is minimally-invasive and carries little risk
  • Side effects of stem cell therapy are minimal, and there is no downtime after the procedure
  • The injectable treatment does not leave any lasting scarring afterward

Currently, stem cell and PRP therapies are seen as a complement to other treatments used for these conditions. Their healing powers can have a substantial impact on the effectiveness of lifestyle changes, medication and cardiac procedures.

Innovative Techniques

While stem cells can be extracted from your blood or bone marrow, scientists have discovered that the highest concentration of mesenchymal stem cells is found in the adipose or fat tissue of the body. By removing this tissue using minimally-invasive liposuction techniques, we can extract the stem cells for use in treating a broad range of medical conditions and aesthetic concerns. The staff at Regeneris Medical has been applying stromal vascular fraction (SVF) technology to this process for many years because it yields the highest number of viable stem cells to produce the best possible results.

Our stem cell therapies are combined with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) a portion of the blood that is rich in regenerative proteins and growth factors. When the two substances are combined, they work synergistically to produce an optimal outcome, whether used for medical treatment or cosmetic purposes.

About Your Procedure

Our stem cell therapy begins with the collection of stem cells via liposuction and PRP through a standard blood draw. The fat tissue and blood are both processes to remove the beneficial substances, purifying them and preparing them for injection into the treatment area. The delivery of the stem cells and PRP is a relatively quick, straightforward injection that takes just a few minutes to complete and does not involve any downtime afterward.

Your Recovery and Results

Patients rarely have much recovery time after stem cell therapy, although they may take a day or two off to recuperate from the liposuction process. The results develop gradually as the healing process takes place and are typically long-lasting.

COMMONLY AFFECTED AREAS

Our regenerative orthopedic patients are seeking stem cell therapy in the following areas:

9

Knee

Several common causes of knee pain have shown positive response to regenerative treatments, including osteoarthritis, meniscus and other ligament damage, traumatic injuries, and other degenerative conditions. Other causes can include age-related degeneration and overuse conditions. By applying stem cell therapy we can alleviate most degenerative conditions through minimally invasive stem cell injections for your knee pain.

9

Hip

Hip pain can restrict mobility and prevent sufferers from enjoying activities of daily life. Hip surgery is often offered as a solution, but can result in lengthy and painful downtime. Alternatively, cellular therapies show promise in treating causes of hip pain such as injury, hip arthritis, and other degenerative conditions.

9

Shoulder

Shoulder pain can cause reduced range of motion and prevent patients from engaging fully in daily life. Common causes of shoulder pain include trauma or injury, arthritis, and other degenerative and age-related conditions. Those who suffer from shoulder pain can avoid costly and painful surgeries with cellular therapies.

9

Elbow & Hand

Pain in the elbows, hands, and wrist can be debilitating, and can prevent patients from participating in many activities of daily living. Powerful potential has been discovered in the application of cellular therapies for pain in the elbow, hand, and wrist caused by arthritis, injury, and other degenerative conditions.
