Autologous Stem Cell Therapy
Regenerative Cell Institute’s stem cell therapy is both groundbreaking and non-invasive. By harvesting the patient’s own stem cells from blood, fat, or bone marrow, and employing proprietary methods of concentrating stem cells to obtain a high yield of regenerative cells, Dr. Santos provides customized indication specific stem cell/PRP protocol for each patient and procedure. Using fluoroscopic guidance and/or ultrasound guidance, stem cells and PRP are injected directly into the patient’s ailing joint or soft tissue. Once injected, the regenerative cells stimulate the body to repair and rebuild tissue that has either degenerated over time or been traumatized from injury or overuse.
Allogeneic Stem Cell Therapy
Wharton’s jelly mesenchymal stem cells are minimally manipulated allografts rich in cytokines, growth factors, scaffolding proteins and hyaluronic acid making an excellent option for regeneration and reduce inflammation.
Amniotic fluid allograft derived from the amniotic fluid within the placenta is abundant in growth factors and cytokines associated with repair, and regeneration of soft tissue.The products contain a variety of pro-angiogenic,immune-modulatory,anti-inflammatory,pro-metabolism,and tissue repair growth factors.Amniotic Fluid allograft products are intended for homologous use and support the repair of soft tissue injury by providing natural growth factors and other extracellular components to the injured area to promote healing, reduce inflammation, and reduce healing time.The patient population indicated for use include acute and chronic wounds and soft tissue injury, muscle and meniscal tears, ligament and tendon sprains, degenerative tissue disorders and inflammatory conditions.

Are You A Candidate For Stem Cell Treatment or PRP Therapy?
If you’re experiencing chronic joint pain, spinal pain, or soft tissue damage, stem cell therapy and/or platelet rich plasma (PRP) treatments can help!
Regardless of whether the damaged joint or tissue is the result of a traumatic sports injury, overuse, or osteoarthritis caused by normal “wear and tear,” our stem cell procedures for orthopedic conditions or PRP therapy for soft tissue injuries can provide lasting relief.
Stem cell and PRP therapy provides regenerative pain management and is a great option for patients who suffer from painful cartilage injuries associated with overuse and/or trauma, as well as for those suffering from soft tissue injuries such as tendon damage, ligament damage, and cartilage damage.
How are Stem Cells Administered?
After the patient’s stem cells and high-density PRP are extracted and concentrated, they are injected directly into the ailing joint or damaged tissue using fluoroscopy or ultrasound.
What to Expect
Most patients experience pain relief within 2 – 12 weeks following the stem cell or PRP procedure. Positive changes are generally visible in MRIs within 6 – 12 months.
