What is Stem Cell Therapy?
Stem Cell Therapy is a cutting-edge treatment within the field of Regenerative Medicine that uses the body’s own healing power to restore itself. Stem Cells are ‘undifferentiated’ cells that can mature into various specialized cells whose functions restore injured and degenerated tissues.
Our Stem Cell treatments use ‘Mesenchymal Stem Cells’ which have the ability to form osteoblasts (bone forming cells), chondrocytes (cartilage forming cells), and myocytes (muscle forming cells). These cell lines are crucial in repairing bone and cartilage. We also use "amniotic allograft," from amniotic fluid donated from healthy pregnant mothers upon their delivery. Amniotic fluid provides many of the growth factors that initiate healing process in the body.
How does the Stem Cell Procedure work?
Stem cells are located in several unique areas of the body. Once Stem Cells are extracted and processed, they are used for the treatments. These reinvigorating cells then begin the repair process by stimulating the growth of new cells and replacing those which are damaged.
Stem Cell FAQ’s
What are stem cells?
Stem cells are “undifferentiated” or “pluripotent” cells that can mature into specific cell types needed for helping repair tissue in areas that are injured or damaged.
Stem cells are different from other cells because they have the ability to create copies of themselves (self-renewal), and to divide for a long period of time. They can differentiate into specialized cells with distinct functions, thus adapting to and fulfilling a wide array of needs for repairing damaged, degenerated, and injured body areas.
Who can get Stem Cell Therapy?
Almost anyone can receive Stem Cell Therapy, and all ages can benefit. A consultation with one of our experienced doctors will determine if Stem Cell Therapy could benefit you.

Stem Cell Therapy Success
I am amazed with the success of stem cell for my left knee torn meniscus that has been a hindrance to me for about two years now. After just about 3-4 months I honestly feel it is healing and I can resume teaching Zumba to seniors in a few months.
Dr. Wortham was so personable and knowledgeable and professional and the whole procedure was almost pain free and basically out patient.
