Know the Facts About Stem Cell Therapy!

With so much misinformation about stem cell therapy out there, our team has the unmatched experience to help patients find the right therapy that is best suited for their particular condition. Our experienced team of stem cell scientists & physicians ensures patients get the highest quality regenerative therapy BASED ON SCIENTIFIC FACTS! There are products on the market that are easier to use and we wish they provided patients the best regenerative treatment but RBI will only use products that are scientifically proven to contain living and functional stem cells which can provide patients with the best chance at a long term clinical improvement.

SCIENTIFIC FACTS

Autologous (Patient-derived) Tissues are the ONLY SOURCE that Provides LIVING/FUNCTIONAL STEM CELLS

With Stem Cell Scientists with over 15 years experience of treating patients with stem cells, we’ve analyzed nearly everything that can affect stem cell viability and functionality. With our proprietary stem cell therapies, we do all the things necessary to maintain the highest viability and functionality of the stem cells from start to finish in order to maximize their regenerative potential for patients. We also add a considerable amount of growth factors to enhance their regenerative potential even more. This can provide patients with the best chance at a long term clinical improvement. 


All of this plus a quick turnaround time provides for the best Regenerative Therapy leading to better, more consistent and longer term clinical results. No matter what source you obtain the stem cells from, if you process, sterilize and freeze them and then ship them around the country, the cells are going to die off in a very big way. 


Patient Age DOES NOT effect the clinical benefit of stem cells. Multiple studies have concluded that the clinical applicability of mesenchymal stem cells is conserved despite age. Every living person has functional stem cells in their body that are capable of healing and repairing tissue. It's just as we age, we need help getting those cells where they need to be in order to provide the maximum benefit. RBI has treated many patients even in their 90's that have obtained a clinical benefit.


A recent stem cell therapy study treated only elderly arthritis patients above the age of 65 years old who had failed conventional treatment. The study demonstrated that stem cell therapy for these patients was an effective treatment resulting in reduction of pain and regeneration of cartilage. Furthermore, 87.5 % of elderly patients improved or maintained cartilage status at least 2 years post stem cell treatment. Link to full study: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24326779


Here is another article describing research in which showed Fat Stem Cells have the ability to replicate and maintain their stability, a finding that held true in cells collected from patients of all ages.

Amniotic/Umbilical/Placenta Products DO NOT Contain Living Stem Cells

CONSUMER ALERT - UMBILICAL PRODUCT RECALL: Umbilical Product Recalled Due to ADVERSE REACTIONS: Read FDA Website Article


Some clinics are pushing these "stem cell" products but unfortunately there are no living stem cells in these products. In fact, if these products did contain living cells we couldn't use them since they would be from a donor. Clinics can't use donor derived living stem cells in the United States. BE AWARE of the BAIT & SWITCH tactics that these clinics use. Umbilical cords themselves do contain stem cells but the Umbilical cord products these clinics inject into patients DO NOT so these clinics show patients studies that use actual umbilical cord stem cells but have nothing to do with the actual product they inject into patients. The umbilical cord products that are injected into patients have been sterilized, frozen and are shipped overnight to clinics leaving no viable cells left for patients. 


There are NO STUDIES showing that the umbilical or amniotic products these clinics use have created any new tissue for patients. There are numerous studies showing autologous or patient-derived stem cells have healed & repaired tissue and improved joint structure. 


Unfortunately even a lot of physicians are unaware of these facts. Be sure that the provider you choose has a stem cell scientist that has analyzed the actual products that are being given to patients.

Stem Cells Die Off When Outside of the Body and When Frozen

Stem cells start to lose viability when they are outside of the body...they are like a "fish out of water". Freezing stem cells also decreases stem cell viability. Be sure you receive freshly isolated stem cells that have never been shipped or frozen!

Autologous Tissue Samples Can Be Harvested in a Minimally Invasive Procedure

Autologous tissue can be safely and easily extracted from patients in a minimally invasive procedure. The procedure doesn't even require stitches and requires minimal recovery time. 

Traditional Procedures Like Arthroscopic Surgery & Cortisone Shots Provide No Lasting Pain Relief

Published in BMJ by an expert panel that reviewed 12 clinical trials and 13 observational studies, concluded that arthroscopic surgery for degenerative knee arthritis and meniscal tears resulted in no lasting pain relief or improved function. Another study published in JAMA by researchers at Tufts Medical Center found that the repeated injection of a corticosteroid (cortisone) resulted in greater loss of knee cartilage and no significant difference in knee pain compared to patients who received a placebo injection.
