What are Stem Cells?
Stem cells can be thought of as the basic building blocks of all bodily tissues. They are somatic cells (cells from the body) that have the power to transform into virtually any other type of cell. This ability to adapt its form to the patient’s needs makes the stem cell an incredibly valuable tool in modern medicine.
How Does Stem Cell Therapy Work?
Stem cell therapy is a minimally invasive procedure used to delay or avoid surgery, which is often far more expensive and physically taxing. This therapy also has the potential to re-grow lost tissue, bone, and cartilage.
When illness or injury leaves you with damaged tissue or significant pain, a concentrated cluster of stem cells can be injected into the affected area to reduce or eliminate the affliction. This concentration of stem cells is often cultivated from amniotic fluid or umbilical cord matter after a consenting mother gives birth. This does not harm the mother or child in any way.
The stem cells cultivated from this process, once injected, quickly begin to take on the qualities of cells around the injections site. Over time, these cells increase the production of red blood cells and key immune system components.
Most patients are able to walk out of the procedure with no assistance and are able to return to their daily routine within a couple of days.
What Does Stem Cell Therapy Treat?
You may be eligible for Stem Cell Therapy if you have experienced, or are currently experiencing, one or more of the following:
Damaged ligaments or tendons
Back or joint pain
Soft tissue injuries
Why Choose Stem Cell Therapy?
Surgery is a severe measure that requires weeks to months of discomfort and physical rehabilitation. Stem Cell Therapy is a safe and effective alternative that requires about two to four days of downtime. The majority of patients report feeling significant relief and restoration after just one treatment. The full regenerative process typically takes 10-12 weeks.
What Will It Cost?
Pricing for Stem Cell Therapy primarily depends on factors like the area being treated, the severity of the affliction, and the treatment’s projected effectiveness. Our costs are aligned with industry standards for a specialty doctor who uses fluoroscopy for correct needle placement.
Stem Cell Therapy at Longevity ranges from $4,000 to $8,000 depending on your unique needs.
Why Choose Longevity Regenerative Institute?
Rather than merely trying to bury your symptoms under a pile of prescriptions, your care providers at Longevity get down to the root cause of your symptoms. We are passionate about helping people eliminate pain and avoid surgery using minimal to no prescription medications.
Dr. Darryl D. Robinson, MD, is double board-certified in Regenerative Medicine and Pain Management. He has practiced medicine since 1996 when he served as a General Medical Officer at Winn Army Community Hospital in Fort Stewart, Georgia.
Providing comprehensive, state-of-the-art treatment for pain syndromes for over two decades has molded Dr. Robinson into one of the most accomplished individuals in his field. In 2012, he was acknowledged by Castle Connolly as one of the region’s top physicians.
Because procedures like Stem Cell Therapy require a highly precise injection, many regenerative experts will use Ultrasound to guide the needle. At Longevity, however, we feel this method is not quite reliable enough. That’s why we utilize state-of-the-art image guiding technology when administering regenerative injections.
Our unique combination of elite expertise, advanced technology, and sincere emotional investment elevates our Institute to a level of quality unparalleled in the state of Oklahoma.
