A leading discovery in regenerative medicine today is cell therapy. Cell therapy is a form of regenerative therapy where Human Cell and Tissue Products (HCT/P) are used for a variety of conditions a patient may be experiencing. Arthritis, neuropathy, and hair loss may be helped using cell therapy. Additionally, cell therapy has shown promise in pain management, including orthopedic disease, erectile dysfunction, and as a tool for antiaging.
Many amazing discoveries are coming in the future. Patients may have an innovative new option to help with certain issues they’re experiencing. Additionally, there is over a decade of evidence supporting the benefits of cell therapy and its applications for a multitude of issues.
However, we must practice due diligence in the expectations you set for your patients. Cell MD’s goal is to educate doctors about regenerative medicine products that will benefit their patients. We also educate our doctors about the uses of these products, the characteristics of their heterogeneous cell mixtures, the applications of the treatments, and, finally, the expectations to set for patients.
Cell Therapy Applications
Multiple sources can produce allograft stem cells. They come from umbilical cord blood, Wharton’s Jelly, and amniotic fluid. Included in these cells are MSCs. MSCs have the ability to differentiate into many cell types. Quantities range from 15 to 60 million cells.
By utilizing regenerative medicine products that include cells with the ability to differentiate into many cell types, cell therapy may be used for localized problems such as joint pain or hair loss. Some practices have even found general applications in antiaging. Furthermore, these are just some examples of practical applications.
What Practices Can Benefit from Adding Cell Therapy?
Many medical practices can benefit from adding allograft therapy to their services, including:
- Cosmetic plastic surgeons, facial plastic surgeons, and doctors specializing in procedures such as micro-needling with PRP (platelet-rich plasma), Dracula Hair Therapy (using PRP), rhinoplasty, facelifts, or other procedures where fast recovery may be preferred.
- Chiropractors, orthopedic surgeons, and other medical professionals working in pain management for orthopedic conditions such as arthritis and joint pain.
- Hair transplant clinics as a means of hair restoration, including when combined with PRP, or as an alternative to ACell or similar regenerative medicines following a transplant.
- Clinics specializing in diabetes for conditions such as neuropathy or as a tool for related pain management issues.
