Stem cell therapy was recently featured in the news once again. This time FOX31 featured the founder of Colorado Regenerative Medicine.
Your body has many of the tools it needs to heal itself so now a little help from science Doctors are using cells to treat chronic conditions such as arthritis.
Dr. Joel Cherdack, who is the founder of Colorado Regenerative Medicine, operates a clinic that uses stem cells from a person’s fat. They use liposuction, to extract the stem cells. Then his facility takes those stem cells, concentrates them and uses them for a wide variety of diseases such as arthritis.
Colorado Regenerative Medicine
Colorado regenerative medicine is different than the Stem Cell professionals for a few reasons. First of all they use a person’s own stem cells. While this may seem attractive, the most effective stem cells aren’t necessarily obtained in ones fat.
Secondly, Colorado Regenerative Medicine treats diseases such as diabetes symptoms. At the Stem Cell Professionals we only treat musculoskeletal conditions such as:
- ACL Tears
- Knee Pain
- Golfers Elbow
- Tennis Elbow
- Torn Rotator Cuff
- Plantar Fasciitis
While some people are seeing promising results for other diseases such as diabetes, we feel that most patients will see the best results with stem cells when they are used for musculoskeletal conditions.
However, stem cells are pretty amazing and the news article features a woman with amazing results. She says,
“Well anything is better than doing nothing so I went for it and I had the stem cell done. The exciting thing is the only thing I still take is Metformin and now for the first time in 35 years I’m not hungry all of the time. I have the energy to do my work. I’m able to exercise and do what I want to do. The weight is falling off!”
The news clip goes on to say that the testimonial was a patient who is suffering from diabetes, but they are also treating people with Parkinson’s, MS and Alzheimer’s.
The argument is that while the stem cells may not be able to cure diseases such as Alzheimer and Parkinson’s, it may be able to slow the progression of these conditions.
Stem Cells for Overall Health
It seems as though the Colorado Regenerative Medicine is also treating healthy people who want to stay young. While this is far from proven, they are saying that stem cells are the fountain of youth. This might be true since stem cells are the building blocks of our tissues and organs.
Colorado Regenerative Medicine believes that re-introducing these stem cells into your body is an appropriate way to improve your overall health. They believe that introducing stem cells into appropriate parts of the body is a way to “replenish” your body’s reserves.
Stem Cell Professionals
The Stem Cell Professionals only use stem cells for musculoskeletal conditions. We have found that stem cells are the most effective when used for these conditions. Also, we don’t take stem cells from a person’s body.
While using your own cells seems attractive, you have to go through painful liposuction in order to obtain the cells. Not to mention the cells from your own body aren’t the most effective for treating conditions such as arthritis.
