Stem Cell Therapy Q & A

What is stem cell therapy?

Stem cells are naturally found in the bone marrow and fatty tissues of your body. These cells have the unique ability to regenerate into all kinds of tissue, including muscle, nerve, and bone. It is especially effective to treat erectile dysfunction or to enhance normal erections.

As you get older or if you have a chronic disease, your body will no longer function like it used to. By using the power of stem cells to heal from the inside out, Dr. Levin can address a wide variety of issues, including chronic pain, that interferes with the quality of your life.

What’s involved in stem cell therapy?

The stem cells Dr. Levin uses in therapy come from umbilical cord-blood donor cells sourced and prescreened for safety and researched by Predictive Technology. When stem cells are ready for injection, Dr. Levin follows a customized treatment plan to deliver the cells into areas of the body damaged by injury or disease.

The in-office procedure is done on an outpatient basis and Dr. Levin ensures your comfort and safety are a top priority. He can apply a topical anesthetic at the injections sites to prevent pain.

How long does it take to see the results of stem cell therapy?

Once your body receives the stem cells, it takes time for new, healthy cells to develop. New cells continue to replace damaged soft tissue and bone cells, essentially regenerating your muscles, ligaments, and joints to ease or eliminate pain, increase function, and restore your mobility.

You could begin to notice a reduction in pain and an increased range of motion within 4-6 weeks of treatment and can expect results to continue improving in the months following your injection.

As stem cell injections address the root cause of pain by repairing damaged tissue, therapy can provide long-term relief of symptoms and mobility issues.

Am I a good candidate for stem cell therapy?

To determine if stem cell therapy is right for you, Dr. Levin physically exams the affected area to evaluate your range of motion and level of pain. He also reviews your medical history and discusses with you what you can expect from the treatment.

Stem cell therapy is a good option for treating chronic pain that isn’t resolved with treatments like medications and physical therapy. Stem cell injection can help you put off or avoid the need for surgery by allowing your body to heal naturally.
