Stem Cell Therapy

Autologous Adult Stem Cell Therapy and Platelet Rich Plasma

Autologous Adult Stem Cell Therapy and Platelet Rich Plasma

Conditions Treated with Stem Cell Therapy

Stem cells regenerate the body at the cellular level. When given intravenously, they are dispersed to the whole body and therefore the possibility of benefits can be endless. Stem cells harvested from adult bone marrow or adipose (fat) tissue can be utilized to treat multiple conditions including, COPD, autoimmune disease such as Crohn’s, psoriasis, and eczema, as well as heart disease and osteoarthritis.

How is Stem Cell Therapy Administered?

Utilizing sterile techniques, about 100cc of adipose (fat) tissue is harvested from the patient under local anesthesia. Stem cells are then harvested from the fat. Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is prepared from the patient’s blood as well. PRP is like food for the stem cell and enhances its function. The stem cell and PRP are combined together and administered to the patient through one or more of the following modalities:

Intravenous – for systemic problems

Local – for joints and skin problems

Nebulizer – for lung problem

Stem Cell Therapy

Totipotent

The ability of an immature stem cell to give rise to any cell type or complete ebmryo. Forms before blastocyst.

Pluripotent

The ability of a stem cell to differentiate into any of the three germ layers: endoderm (interior stomach lining, gastrointestinal tract, the lungs), mesoderm (muscle, bone, blood, urogenital), or ectoderm (epidermal tissues and nervous system).

Multipotent

Multipotent cells are found in many, but not all human cell types. Multipotent cells have been found in cord blood, adipose tissue, cardiac cells, bone marrow, and mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) which are found in the third molar.

Oligopotency

The ability of progenitor cells to differentiate into a few cell types. It is a degree of potency. Examples of oligopotent stem cells are the lymphoid or myeloid stem cells. A lymphoid cell specifically, can give rise to various blood cells such as B and T cells, however, not to a different blood cell type like a red blood cell.

Unipotent

The ability of a progenitor cell to differentiate into one cell type.

What is Stem Cell Therapy?

Stem cells are undifferentiated biological cells that can become a specialized cell (blood, nerve, lung, heart, ligaments, etc.) in the right environment. This special progenitor cell has the ability to divide to produce more stem cells. There is some controversy in stem cell therapy, however, at Integrative Healing Center, we do not use embryonic cells, but we harvest cells from the patient’s own fatty tissues.

What is Platelet Rich Plasma?

Platelet Rich Plasma is blood plasma that has been enriched with platelets. As a concentrated source of autologous platelets, PRP contains several different growth factors and other cytokines that can stimulate healing of bone and soft tissue. Platelets also contain hundreds of proteins called growth factors which are very important in the healing of injuries.

Conditions Treated with Platelet Rich Plasma

Chronic tendon injuries, acute ligament and muscle injuries, surgical wounds, knee arthritis, and fractures. It can also be utilized in aesthetic procedures to improve outcomes.

"Dr. Robinson has been such a blessing to our family. When I was concerned about test results, she called me personally to calm my fears. She explains things thoroughly and has a wonderful bedside manner. She is so knowledgeable and such an asset to the Northern Illinois region. It is hard to find such a wonderful doctor and even harder to find one locally. I recommend her to all of my friends."

"After chemotherapy and radiation treatments to fight my breast cancer, I have been unable to work due to extreme fatigue. Dr. Robinson was my surgeon and she suggested I try the IV vitamins to see if they could help me. My energy levels did improve and I have increased stamina since receiving the IV vitamins. I may never be at the energy levels I had before the chemotherapy but I am grateful for the improvements that I have received and definitely recommend you see Dr. Robinson for these Vitamin IV treatments!

"I am very grateful and thankful for Dr. Robinson's sincere dedication to help cure disease. In less than two months, I have referred four loved ones to Dr. Robinson. As a cancer patient, my IV vitamin C and B's are meticulously administered with the greatest benefit to my body. Dr. Robinson is helping achieve positive results!"
