Regenerative Cell Therapy in La Porte
Regenerative Medicine in La Porte is a relatively new field of medicine which finds solutions to some of the most challenging health problems like chronic pain, tissue injury, and degenerative joint disease.
Unlike the current clinical strategy of just treating the symptoms through "pain management", Regenerative Medicine seeks to help the body regenerate, repair, rebuild and replace tissues that have been damaged by disease, trauma and degeneration. By working to naturally restore structure and function to damaged tissues causing symptoms, Regenerative Medicine aims to reduce or eliminate the need for NSAIDS, narcotics, opioids or unnecessary orthopedic surgery.
What are Stem cells in La Porte?
Amniotic Allograph Regenerative Cell Therapy (sometimes called as "Stem Cell" Therapy) is one of the many "tools" utilized in Regenerative Medicine. For decades, Regenerative Cell Therapy has been called "The Future of Medicine" - the future has arrived!
Regenerative Cell Therapy holds the promise of helping repair damaged, degenerated or injured tissues by stimulating the body’s own healing mechanism.
Stem Cells are "tissue building blocks" that can develop into any type of cell in your body, including cartilage, ligament, tendon, muscle, disc, bone and nerve cells. Even though stem cells are part of the Regenerated Cell Therapy, it's much more than just stem cells.
Regenerative Therapy delivers a high concentration of stem cells, cytokines, hyaluronic acid and other growth factors, into the injured or damaged area which attempt to promote, enhance and accelerate the body's natural healing. Unlike pain management which often only masks the symptoms, Regenerative Therapy aims to address the underlying cause of symptoms.
In the emerging field of Regenerative Medicine, Predictive Biotech is setting the bar high for processing protocol. The power of our products is in their functionality, but just like all harvested tissue, that functionality can diminish without proper handling.
That’s why we process all of our tissues in our FDA-registered lab utilizing proprietary methods that reduce the loss of important scaffolding proteins, growth factors, cytokines and other properties. We then cryogenically freeze the allograft to better preserve viability and even go so far as to provide liquid nitrogen storage containers to our medical partners to ensure the product is kept at -196 degrees. It’s about minimally processing tissue to preserve and share what matters so we can maximize its potential.
Frequently asked Questions about Regenerative Cell therapy
These are just a few of our frequently asked questions regarding regenerative cell therapy.
Mesenchymal Stem Cells, "the Master Cells", are able to receive signals from the other cells in your body. Stem cells seek out inflammation and degeneration, and go to that location to begin repairing damaged tissue. Stem cells build, repair and grow new tissue, and are effective at reducing inflammation and scar tissue.
Regenerative Cell Therapy are injections that are loaded with cytokines, stem cells, hyaluronic acid and other growth factors. When this therapy is injected into the injured area, stem cells have the potential become cells of the tissue that need regenerating. Enzymes from the inflammation in the body tell the stem cells what to become. Because inflammation is essential for the body to send the proper signals, it is vital to not take anti-inflammatory medications 3 days prior to the injection and for 4-6 weeks after.
Tissues, including stem cells, utilized in Regenerative Cell Therapy in this office are harvested from HUMAN UMBILICAL CORDS and PLACENTA from LIVE HEALTHY BIRTHS collected from hospitals across the U.S.
The umbilical cord blood is donated to the hospital after the live birth of a healthy baby and healthy mom. Only cord blood cells derived from healthy mothers and babies are accepted after being monitored the whole 9 months of pregnancy.
Once you are injected with the AMNIOTIC ALLOGRAFT SERUM containing these stem cells, the growth factors start to work, triggering cell growth in the area injected. Over the following few weeks and months, cells grow and divide, forming new tissues to help heal damaged or injured areas you have, without going through a surgical procedure.
Regenerative Cell Therapy is beneficial for helping the body heal many types of joint, bone and soft tissue problems, including degeneration and arthritis. The simple injections may eliminate the need for NSAIDS, narcotics, opioids, steroids, and cortisone; and help to avoid orthopedic surgery by stimulating natural healing of your:
- Knee Arthritis & Meniscus Tear
- Shoulder Pain & Rotator Cuff Tear
- Hip Pain & Degeneration
- Elbow Pain & Epicondylitis
- Ankle, Foot Pain & Plantar Fasciitis
- Frozen shoulder
- Wrist & Hand Pain
- Neck and Back Arthritis & Degeneration
- And so much more!
Sometimes surgery isn’t an option, or perhaps, previous treatments have failed. In many cases, Regenerative Cell Therapy may be the perfect solution.

Because you're kick starting your body into making new tissues, it does take some time for your Regenerative Therapy treatment to start working. Some patients report a dramatic reduction in their pain levels in as little as two weeks, while others experience improvement within a few months. It just depends on how quickly your body responds to the treatment.
Most people respond very well to one treatment. Others benefit from a second therapy months later. It depends on how quickly you heal and the severity of your injury. Some patients will need regularly scheduled treatment annually for anti-inflammatory benefits, especially in areas filled with metal from previous surgeries, degenerative issues or scar tissue. Our medical providers can let you know what to expect during your initial consultation and assessment appointment.
