Stem Cell Therapy

 

The Illinois Pain Institute is committed to staying at the forefront of medical techniques and has observed positive outcomes in specific stem cell therapy protocols. This is why the physicians of the Illinois Pain Institute are proud members of The Regenerative Stem Cell Institute, an organization committed to providing high quality stem cell therapy.

Conditions studied include:

• Orthopedic (knees, hips, spine, elbows, hands, shoulders, feet, etc.)
• Neurologic (Parkinson’s, concussions, stroke recovery, MS, ALS)
• Urologic (Peyronie’s, erectile dysfunction, and interstitial cystitis)
• Cardiac / Pulmonary (Asthma, COPD, hypertension, lung disease)
• Auto-Immune (Lupus, Crohn’s, Rheumatoid Arthritis)
• Ophthalmologic (Glaucoma, Macular Degeneration)

 

WHAT IS STEM CELL THERAPY AT THE REGENERATIVE STEM CELL INSTITUTE?
Stem cell therapy at The Regenerative Stem Cell Institute uses adult autologous adipose- derived stem cells harvested from the patient’s own tissues for a variety of conditions by possibly stimulating healing and tissue regeneration and reducing inflammation caused by disease.

 

HOW ARE STEM CELLS HARVESTED?
Fat harvesting is used to extract adipose tissue from the patient during an outpatient procedure. After the extraction, the adipose tissue is separated into its different components and injected through IV and potentially at the affected site.

 

WHAT DO ADULT STEM CELLS DO?
Adult stem cells are progenitor cells. This means they remain dormant unless they detect some level of tissue injury or inflammation. When a person with a degenerative condition receives their stem cell deployment, the stem cells tend to go to that area of need and stimulate the healing process.

 

WILL STEM CELL THERAPY WORK FOR ME?
Outcome data, while promising for certain conditions, varies by individual and condition. Some patients may not experience significant improvement and others may see dramatic regeneration of tissue. Upon consultation, our team can provide more specific information.

 

WHAT ARE THE RISKS OF STEM CELL THERAPY?
The risk of stem cell therapy at The Regenerative Stem Cell Institute is minimal because the cells are sources from your own body, which decreases the risk of rejection and complications, such as allergic reactions. Our research team has performed over 7,000 stem cell procedures with no serious adverse events.
