What are stem cells?
Stem cells are cells with the potential to develop into many different types of cells throughout the body including muscle cells and brain cells. They serve as a repair system for the body.
There are two main types of stem cells: embryonic stem cells and adult stem cells. Vibrant Health Care only uses adult stem cells from FDA licensed and registered tissue banks.
What are adult stem cells?
Vibrant uses adult stem cells that are harvested from placenta and umbilical cord tissue, donated by mothers after a full term pregnancy and healthy C-Section childbirth.
This tissue is full of growth factors, stem cells and many other healing components. In the past, the placenta was discarded after the child birth but now due to the advancements in medical science, we are able to put that to good use and heal patients from it.
What conditions can stem cells help with?
StemCells can be used to help treat:
• sports injuries
• orthopedics issues
• auto-immune disorders
• sexual dysfunction
• neck & back pain
• neurodegenerative disorders
• and numerous other conditions.
During the free consultation, our doctors will go over your specific condition and how it can benefit from stem cell therapy.
Is there evidence that stem cells actually work?
Yes. Clinical trials proving that stem cell treatments can treat a number of conditions have been completed all across the world. There are over 6000 clinical studies posted on clinicaltrials.gov website that prove the efficacy of stem cell treatments in a wide variety of health conditions.
At Vibrant Health Care we have had fantastic results treating numerous conditions such as chronic pain, degenerative diseases, auto-immune disorders and numerous others. Check out the testimonials page to see real examples of how stem cells reduced pain and greatly improved quality of life.
How long does it take to work?
The timing of benefits from stem cell therapy can vary from patient to patient. Some patients see results in as little as two days.
Generally the symptoms continue to improve up to 3 months with full treatment benefits showing in 6 to 9 months.
What are some of the general risks associated with stem cell treatments?
Unlike surgeries and medications, there are little to no risks associated with stem cell treatments.Since stem cells are delivered via an injection, there is very small risk of infection at the injection site but that is true with any type of injection. In rare cases, some patients may feel a little headache or soreness that goes away within a few hours. Stem cell treatment are generally very safe and present no major risks.
Can a person use stem cells collected from one’s own body to treat different conditions?
Yes, this can be done but it is not as effective and optimal as using the fresh stem cells from the umbilical cord tissue. As we age, our own stem cells tend to lose their full healing potential and we also have less and less stem cells available in our bodies due to aging. Using fresh and most potent stem cells from the umbilical cord tissue is a much better and effective alternative to using our own stem cells.
Can my body reject the stem cells?
No, stem cells from the umbilical cord tissue are naturally immune privileged. This means that our body's immune system does not rejects them.
Where do you get stem cells that are used in treatments?
We receive our tissue from the FDA licensed and registered tissue banks that are located in the United States. These tissue bank are monitored and regulated by the FDA and go through very rigorous quality control processes to get licensed. All tissue from these tissue banks have to meet the safety criteria and standards set by the FDA.
About how many cells are being implanted during the procedure?
The amount of stem cells being implanted depends on your individualized treatment plan. However all treatments involve implanting several million of stem cells.
What side effects can I expect?
There are very few side effects to stem cell treatment. The most frequent are headaches, chills, and mild pain at the injection site and some swelling post treatment which goes away within a few hours. Most of our patients feel no pain or side effects as a result of the stem cell treatment.
How much does it cost?
The cost of Stem Cell treatment can range from $5,000 to $15,000 depending on the individualized treatment plan and severity of the health condition being treated.

No. Stem cell treatments are non-invasive and rarely painful.
Will My Immune System Be Compromised?
No, stem cell treatments actually strengthen your immune system through the introduction or new stem cells which contribute to your immune response.
Do Stem Cells Come From Babies?
No, our stem cells do not come from babies. The use of embryonic stem cells is not legal in the United States. Our stem cells come from umbilical cord tissue that is donated by mothers after they have given birth to full term babies.

Once you have a better understanding of how Stem Cell Therapy can help you, give us a call and we'll answer any other questions you have and then we can get you set up with a free consultation with the doctor.
What Are Adipose-derived Stem Cells?
Adipose-derived stem cells are stem cells (MSCs) that are obtained from fat tissue of adult patients. They are usually not at potent and effective as the stem cell obtained from the umbilical cord. In order to use Adipose derived stem cells patients have to go through a surgery where fat is sucked out the body so the stem cells can be obtained from it. This can be a painful procedure and can increase the risk of infection at the surgery site. At Vibrant Health Care,we only use stem cells that are derived from the umbilical cord tissue. This not only less invasive than using adipose derived stem cells but these cells also offer greater healing potential and no down time for the patients.
