STEM CELL & PLATELET RICH PLAMSA

Regenerative Injection Therapy Using Stem Cells 

(Please see bottom of page for information on Platelet Rich Plasma Treatments)


Regenerative Therapies are non-drug, cutting-edge therapies that promote the regeneration of healthy joints, muscle, tendons, ligaments, soft tissue, hair follicles, and dermal cells. 

We are one of the few clinics in the Northeast offering Mesenchymal Undifferentiated Stem Cells both through injection and via intravenous infusion (CorCyte) of Wharton's Jelly (See below for more details). 

Common Therapies we Treat:

- Hair Restoration, Regrowth, and Thickening of existing but thinned & brittle hair.

-Facial Rejuvenation, Reduction of Loose Skin, Reduction of Wrinkles. 

-Filling/Fillers for Dermal Folds, Wrinkles, and Treatment for loss of taughtness/tension.

-Wound Care

-Joint Degeneration

-Joint Damage, Arthritic Pain, Bone/Cartiillage Degeneration, Tears. 

Evidence Based Information:

-The human umbilical cord stem cells improve the viability of OA degenerated chondrocytes

Stem Cell Therapy Procedures & Estimates

 

Just as it is uncommon for elective or designated surgical costs to be published Stem Cell Treatment Costs & Estimates are also typically unpublished. However, we have provided transparent and competitive estimates for our patients, so that they can make an informed decision on the expenditures of their procedure. Common medical elective trips to Central and South America for the same stem cell procedures we perform at our clinic costs between $25 000 & $35 000. 

 

In our field of Functional & Regenerative Medicine, our goal is to provide basic cellular and biochemical components to pre-existing tissue, in order to stimulate and provide basic substrates for the repair, growth, and replacement of the lost matter. These highly potent cells (Stem Cells) are often the sole limiting factors in human body tissue repair. As such, the more Stem Cells available, the faster and more complete the healing process. As we age, as with all organs and cells of the body, Stem Cell production, and proliferation decrease dramatically. 

 

Until recently, researchers only had access to embryonic stem cells, which were both cost prohibitive to obtain, and unethical. With recent advances in medicine, we have completed the successful techniques to harvest Stem Cells from Umbilical Cord Wharton Jelly Tissue, in an ethical, safe and effective manner. Wharton’s Jelly contains vast concentrations of Mesenchymal Stem Cells, often more so than obtainable by Lipid or Bone Marrow Stem Cell Harvesting. These Stem Cells, derived from umbilical tissue of a newborn, are more potent, higher concentration, and still without Antigens to cause Rejection when applied to tissue. As such, there is no need to determine donor matches, as the cells are unrecognizable to immune systems – Antibodies are not produced, and the risk of rejection is nullified. 

 

Our clinic only uses CoreCyte Wharton Stem Cells. You can read more information about their techniques and standards below:

These induced cells, unlike other derived or concentrated cells from the Fat Grafting or Bone Marrow, are approved by the FDA, as long as they meet two key requirements:

 

  1. The tissue from which the Stem Cell's is derived from, is Minimally Manipulated.

  2. The manufacturer regulates use for Homologous Tissue only. 

 

In short, as long as the Mesenchymal, Umbilical Tissue Derived Stem Cells are not concentrated, and as long as they are used to repair existing tissue by mechanism of repair, reconstruction, or replacement, there are no FDA restrictions. 

 

Below is a working list of conditions, based on scientific literature and clinical experience, which can be benefited from Stem Cells. 

 

  • TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury)

  • Tooth & Oral Cavity Regeneration. 

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis & Rheumatoid Arthritis

  • Degenerative Joint Disease

  • Crohn’s Disease

  • Multi-Focal & Single Site Cancers

  • Spinal Cord Injury

  • Bone Marrow Transplant 

  • Diabetes

  • Post Cardiac Infarcts

 

Please see our comprehensive estimated costs below, for various procedures. Note that certain cell types, such as MSC stem cells may not be FDA approved for the procedure you are undergoing or the disease you have, and as such, the estimate is based on the extent of tissue our physicians plan on regenerating, the location of the procedure, and the time required to evaluate and treat. As such the scope of the procedure & complexity will ultimately determine the variation in price. 

​In addition to the procedure, there is a consultation fee. If you have questions, please Call Us: (802) 579 1679

 

 

 

Procedure Fees: * Note: All Stem Cell Procedural Appointments require a Credit Card at the time of booking. Cancelled appointments within 48 hours or missed appointments will automatically incur a $200 fee*

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Regenerative Therapy (Separate procedure from Stem Cell)

 

We only use the most clinically proven, studied techniques to harvest platelet rich plasma for regenerative procedures in our office. Our centrifugal devices are set to spin at the exact time and rate in order to achieve maximal platelet concentration. Our temperature control during the process is kept minimal to prevent cellular damage and platelet heat activation prior to injection. Our collection device is the only device manufactured which concentrates PRP into an hour-glass-like cylinder, making the high concentration platelets fully visible by the physician and able to be extracted. 

Although Stem Cell Therapy appears to be the future of regenerative medicine, it's cost may prohibit a wide number of patients from fully utlilizing it. As such, we are able to offer PRP Regenerative Therapies at a much lower cost, and with clinically proven, and time tested results:
