Stem Cells FAQ

What is Stem Cell Therapy?

Stem Cell Therapy involves using the patient’s own stem cells or those from a donor to promote healing, repair damaged tissues, and address various medical conditions.

Stem cells have the unique ability to transform into specialized cells and replace or repair damaged tissues. They also possess anti-inflammatory properties.

Stem Cell Therapy is being explored for a range of conditions, including orthopedic issues, autoimmune diseases, neurodegenerative disorders, and more.

Yes, there are embryonic stem cells, adult stem cells, and induced pluripotent stem cells. Stem cells used in therapy are often derived from the patient’s own body.

While ongoing research supports its potential, Stem Cell Therapy is not universally accepted for all conditions. Consultation with a medical professional is crucial to determine its appropriateness.

Stem cells can be harvested from various sources, including bone marrow, adipose tissue (fat), or blood. The extraction process is minimally invasive and well-tolerated.

Ethical concerns primarily surround the use of embryonic stem cells. Many therapies, however, use adult stem cells, minimizing ethical considerations.

Discomfort is generally minimal. Local anesthesia is often used during the extraction process, and patients may experience mild soreness after the therapy.
