Stem Cell Therapy Q & A

What is stem cell therapy?

Stem cells have the unique ability to develop into many different types of cells, which gives them the power to regenerate any type of tissue in your body. When Dr. Robles injects stem cells into your body, they migrate to the area of damaged cells that are causing you pain and rebuild healthy tissue.

There are two main types of stem cells: embryonic stem cells, which come from umbilical cords, and adult stem cells, which Dr. Robles collects from your own blood. The process of collecting stem cells is called harvesting. Dr. Robles has extensive experience working with both types of stem cells.

What are the benefits of stem cell therapy?

Since stem cells can differentiate into many types of cells, they can replace injured tissues all over your body. Dr. Robles often uses stem cell therapy to regenerate cartilage in patients with osteoarthritis.

Stem cell therapy is also an effective treatment for painful musculoskeletal conditions and sports injuries, such as tendon degeneration. This treatment may help you avoid surgery and reduce or eliminate the need for narcotic pain medications.

When Dr. Robles uses stem cells from your own body, there’s no risk of your body rejecting the treatment. Most patients experience pain relief immediately after their first treatment, but the full regenerative process may take up to 12 weeks.

What are different types of stem cell therapies?

Dr. Robles is one of the best regenerative medicine specialists in the country. He’s highly trained in the most advanced techniques in stem cell therapy, including:

Bone marrow aspirate

Bone marrow aspirate (BMA) is a fluid concentrate that Dr. Robles harvests from your bone marrow, usually in your hip. While you’re under anesthesia or gentle sedation, he extracts millions of stem cells from your bone marrow and then reinjects them into the site of pain or injury.

Exosome topical therapy

This cutting-edge therapy restores severely damaged skin, such as from a second-degree burn. Exosomes occur naturally in your body and act as messengers. When applied topically, they promote older cells to express new growth factors, which leads to tissue regeneration.
