Stem cells are very unique in how they function and provide the body with many benefits. They can easily transform to match many other types of cells in the body, including those in bones, cartilage, muscles, and tendons. They also attract other stem cells to the treatment area to help repair injuries within the body.
Advanced Medical offers non-invasive, all-natural stem cell treatment options to help patients heal and repair injuries in their cartilage, knees, hips, back, and neck. Stem cell therapy is an innovation in natural treatment that can help you get your life back without the need for risky, invasive surgeries.
Today is a day to be excited because you finally have a chance to FEEL BETTER, END THE NEVER-ENDING CYCLE OF PAIN and GET YOUR LIFE BACK!
Stem cell therapy is a non-invasive approach to healing injured parts of the body.
Stem cells are the basic building blocks of human tissue and have the ability to repair, rebuild, and rejuvenate tissues in the body. When a disease or injury strikes, stem cells respond to specific signals and set about to facilitate the healing process by stimulating your own body to repair itself.
Stem cells that come from perinatal tissue(healthy post-natal C-sections) have distinct functional properties including immunomodulation and anti-inflammation which support the repair and regeneration of damaged tissue associated with disease and injury.
There are four known types of stem cells which include:
We provide allogeneic regenerative cytokines and mesenchymal stem cells from health post-natal C-sections.
We tap into our body’s stem cell reserve daily to repair and replace damaged or diseased tissue. When the body’s reserve is limited and as it becomes depleted, the regenerative power of our body decreases and we succumb to disease and injury.
Three sources of stem cells from a patient’s body are used clinically which include adipose tissue (fat), bone marrow and umbilical cord matrix(Wharton’s Jelly).
We provide stem cell therapy for a wide variety of musculoskeletal conditions for which traditional treatment offers less than optimal options. Some conditions include Osteoarthritis, Bursitis, Plantar Fasciitis and Degenerative Disc Disease
Since each condition and patient are unique, there is no guarantee of what results will be achieved or how quickly they may be observed. According to patient feedback, many patients report results in one to three months, however, it may take as long as six to nine months. Individuals interested in stem cell therapy are urged to consult with their physician before choosing investigational allogeneic umbilical cord derived regenerative medicine allografts as a treatment option.
In order to determine if you are a good candidate for a regenerative medicine treatment, you will need to complete a medical history form which will be provided by our patient advocate team. Once you complete and submit your medical history form, our medical team will review your records and determine if you are a qualified candidate for a regenerative medicine therapy.
The side effects of intra-articular injection of a regenerative medicine allograft are minimal and may include but are not limited to: infection, minor bleeding at the treatment sites and localized pain. However, these side effects typically last no longer than 24 hours.
We provide regenerative medicine allografts from healthy post-natal C-section births that provide regenerative factors and mesenchymal stem cells. Embryonic stem cells are typically associated with ethical concerns. We do not offer embryonic stem cells.
Our regenerative medicine allografts are regulated as human cell and tissue transplants, similar to skin and bone. As structural human cell and tissue products regulated under FDA CFR 1271 Part 361, our allografts do not require FDA approval, rather we are strictly regulated to prevent the spread of communicable diseases and to maintain the structural integrity of the allografts as they’re harvested from umbilical cords and transferred for musculoskeletal cushioning, protection and supplementation. These regenerative allografts are FDA regulated rather than FDA approved. The FDA is a regulatory oversight body and doesn’t exercise legal authority. If an FDA regulated tissue transplant or therapy is noted as non-compliant and not corrected according to FDA guidelines, the FDA may refer a significant public health risk to the Department of Justice or a state attorney general.
Stem cell treatment is not covered by health insurance at this time.
Although stem cells are found throughout our bodies, mesenchymal stem cells can only be harvested for native (non-cultured) use from adipose, bone marrow and umbilical cord matrix. The term “amniotic stem cells” is an oxymoron in that amniotic fluid and matrix products don’t contain stem cells. They do however contain unique cytokines and other growth factors.
Stem cell treatments, also referred to as regenerative medicine, uses the body to regenerate tissue growth in the tissue in and around the knee. This helps repair and heal knee injuries and damage to the knee caused by such conditions as arthritis, bursitis, and other.
When compared to painful invasive knee surgery, stem cell therapy is non-invasive and relatively pain-free treatment where the regenerative cells are injected directly into the knee. While each patient is different, they typically experience very little pain or discomfort, only feeling the sensation of a slight pinch when the needle is inserted into the knee. Some patients report feeling a warm sensation that doesn’t last long.
While surgery can cause lasting discomfort and limited range of motion in the knee, stem cell therapy offers long-lasting pain relief that not only repairs the damage to hard and soft tissues in the knee, but which also improves function and mobility.
Surgical procedures are lengthy; from the preoperative preparation involved to the actual surgery which can take many hours, surgeries overall take a lot of time. On the other hand, a stem cell treatment takes significantly less time because the regenerative cells are injected into the knee in one treatment.
Unlike knee surgeries that have exceptionally long healing, recovery, and rehabilitation times — lasting anywhere from three months to more than six months — there is no downtime or recovery time with regenerative medicine. In fact, you can walk in to your treatment and walk out a short time later, getting back to your normal routine and daily activities immediately. As the cells begin to regenerate tissues over the next few weeks, patients typically notice significant improvement in shorter amount of time that it would take to recover from a knee surgery.
That being said, the knee may take months to respond to a surgery. While every individual is unique in their response to stem cell therapy, typically, patients who undergo regenerative medicine report a significant reduction in knee pain, as well as a dramatic improvement in function and movement, in as little as a few weeks to a few months.
Because of the invasiveness of knee surgery, these procedures are risky, as they can fail or even cause ongoing complications that cause new pain or discomfort to develop. Stem cell therapy, however, uses your body’s own cells combined with regenerative amniotic allograft, which is made up of hyaluronic acid, regenerative cells, and cytokines. This treatment repairs tissue, relieves pain, and actually benefits your overall health and body as a whole.
Did you know that more than 50 percent of patients who undergo knee surgery typically require additional surgeries at some point in there lifetime? That being said, stem cell treatments generally deliver desired results in just one treatment. While a small number of patients with more severe knee injuries or damage, or those who have not seen improvement after several months, have been recommended for an additional treatment, this is not commonplace.
Overall, stem cell therapy offers significant benefits for repairing tissues in the knees when compared to invasive knee surgery. While every patient and every condition is unique, the impressive results and vast improvements reported by patients who have received stem cell therapy to treat their knee problems is overwhelmingly positive. Regenerative medicine is a powerful, innovative therapy that has surpassed outdated knee surgeries. Stem cell treatments can people of all ages and from all walks of life get back to doing the things they love most quickly, without pain, and with improvement in knee function and movement.

“When I started coming to Advanced Medical of Nashville I had the pain and the stabbing needles and the imbalance that Neuropathy causes. Due to these treatments, I no longer have balance problems! I do not fall down anymore. I can walk so much better and I can tell that slowly the pins and needles are going away. The thing that has really changed is I am no longer dependent on a walking stick and I don’t have to worry about falling down!”
“Before initially starting care in the office I felt nothing in my feet. I couldn’t bend my toe. I couldn’t feel when I had to urinate. I was wearing Depends. I was told by my orthopedic doctor that I would have to have knee surgery because of osteoarthritis, but now I am not experiencing pain in my knees! (After 3 weeks) I am walking better than I have in over a year. I am actually wearing 2 inch heels today! I can move my feet/toes by just thinking about them moving. I can feel the urge to use the restroom. I used to have to hold on to the arms of the couch and the coffee table to lift myself up. The other day my husband noticed that I got up without assistance. I have gained my ability to walk!”
“I am sooooo blessed! Advanced Medical has literally changed my life! I have had to resort to pain medication for years from the pain in my feet from Neuropathy! That alone is a draining challenge for anyone who is truly suffering with chronic pain. I was told before that I will just get worse and eventually they would have to amputate! WOAH! No way jose! I have already started weaning off of the pain meds, at 23 treatments, and the pain in GONE! ‘Chronic pain’ means you’ll have the ‘disease’ forever in the (traditional) medical world. That is not my world anymore! Miracles do happen! Advanced Medical has empowered me. Thank you!!”
“Before, my pain was bad. I could not do the things I wanted to do. I used to walk around my block several times but I could not even walk one time. My life has now changed now that I can walk on my treadmill and around the block! I now feel great and have a new lease on life. My legs and feet no longer hurt. I can sleep through the night. I can now get back to doing the things that make my life worth living.”
Before initially starting care in the office, I was experiencing coldness in my feet, numbness, pin & needle pain, problems getting out of bed most mornings. I began to have cramps in my leg when I slept, color in the bottom of my feet and had began to have severe pain where I had difficulty walking. Since being with Advanced Medical for 7 weeks now, I feel my feet are warming up, no cramps since injections and little pin & needle pain. Can get out of bed without difficulty. I’ve noticed I no longer have the difficulties of moving around as before. I have regained my ability to move around without a lot of difficulty, sleep without bad pain in feet or bad cramps in legs. I don’t have the constant pin & needle feeling or pain.
