Stem cell therapy is a revolutionary treatment that uses your own stem cells to heal damaged tissues and cells in the body. It is an effective treatment for many hard-to-treat diseases including cancer, Parkinson's, and heart disorders.
Conventional treatment only focuses on reducing symptoms, often missing the root cause of illnesses. Stem cells work to change your biology and improve the cellular processes that are causing your illness or symptoms.
Stem cell treatment utilizes cells you already have to promote healing. Unlike pharmaceutical or surgical interventions, there is little risk of rejection or adverse side effects.
From chronic pain to life-threatening illnesses like cancer, stem cell therapy has revolutionized the way patients can treat diseases and regain their best quality of life.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Stem cell therapy is an innovative and relatively new treatment. It has been intensively studied and is even recognized by the FDA for treatment of cancer and blood and immune disorders.
It is important to note that stem cell therapy is not generally covered by insurance. Despite the evidence to show the benefits of stem cell therapy for a variety of diseases, most insurance companies still classify it as an experimental treatment.
Stem cell therapy can cost anywhere from $2,500 to $50,000 depending on a variety of factors. While some patients may see this as a large cost for a treatment, we believe there is no price on your quality of life. Furthermore, the benefits you receive from treatment can actually save you money on other expensive treatments like surgery, pharmaceutical drugs, or therapies that only work to minimize your symptoms.
The following things will determine the cost of your stem cell treatment:
There are several types of stem cells that can be used for treatment including embryonic stem cells or different types of adult stem cells.
The type of treatment you receive will depend on the area or concern you are trying to treat. Generally, orthopedic stem cell injections that are localized will cost less than a full stem cell transplantation that treats problems like cancer.
Stem cells can be retrieved from bone marrow, adipose tissue, the bloodstream, umbilical cord blood, or placenta tissue. The type of treatment determines where stem cells will be taken from.
Stem cell treatment is an advanced treatment that should only be performed by a doctor that specializes in regenerative medicine. Dr. Halland is a leader in stem cell therapy in NYC.
The number of treatments you will need can vary based on your condition. During your consultation we will develop a custom treatment plan that will effectively relieve your symptoms and help you to continue to improve over time.
Depending on your condition, you may benefit from other holistic treatments like cryotherapy or nutritional coaching in combination with stem cell therapy.
Stem cell therapy can benefit almost any disease or area effected by cell damage. A wide range of medical conditions including diabetes, cancers, autoimmune disorders, neurological disorders, pulmonary disorders, and heart disease can be treated with stem cell therapy. Injuries such as tendon tears, bone fractures, and strains can all be healed faster with stem cells.
Stem cell therapy is also an ideal preventative treatment for those who want to slow the aging process or recovery faster from workouts or consistent stress on the body from activities like competitive sports.
Embryonic stem cells: Embryonic stem cells are derived from early-stage embryos and have the ability to differentiate into any type of cell in the body. These cells are highly versatile.
Induced pluripotent stem cells: Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) are created by reprogramming adult cells, such as skin cells, to a stem cell-like state. These cells have many of the same characteristics as embryonic stem cells.
Adult stem cells: Adult stem cells, also known as somatic stem cells, are found in various tissues throughout the body, including bone marrow, fat, and muscle. These cells have the ability to differentiate into a limited number of cell types, making them less versatile than embryonic stem cells or iPSCs.
Cord blood stem cells: Cord blood stem cells are collected from the umbilical cord and placenta after a baby is born. These cells can differentiate into a range of blood cells, and they are commonly used in the treatment of blood-related disorders, such as leukemia.
Stem cells can be injected, infused, or implanted. The way your treatment is administered will depend on your goals for treatment and the area being treated.
The collection and re-introduction of stem cells is not a painful procedure. Depending on the collection and administration site, we are able to administer local anesthesia to ensure your total comfort.
GET WELL, STAY WELL
Anyone who has gone through medical treatment for a disease like cancer or diabetes knows that it is expensive, even with health insurance. Our stem cell therapy treatments aim to treat you from the inside out and provide you with consistent, life-changing relief that will minimize or completely prevent the need for conventional treatments.
Stem cell therapy is a medical treatment that involves using stem cells to repair or replace damaged or diseased cells and tissues in the body. Stem cells are unique because they have the ability to differentiate into various types of cells and tissues, depending on the signals they receive from the body. This rapidly evolving field of medicine offers profound results for everyone from competitive athletes to those with serious, chronic illnesses.
