Frequently Asked Questions

A new medical field which seeks to replace tissues or organs that have been damaged by disease, trauma, or congenital issues and to restore them back to normal function.

MSC’s are Undifferentiated cells that have the remarkable potential to develop into many different cell types in the body during early life and growth. They can also serve as a repair system for the body and differentiate into a variety of cells such as bone, cartilage and muscle cells.

MSC’s are the embryonic stem cells which NOVO Regenerative uses and come from donated female umbilical cords. There is also PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) which is extracted from the blood or bone marrow of the recipient patient.

They are obtained from healthy women who have agreed to donate the umbilical cord contents after the birth of their child. This donated material then goes through vigorous testing at FDA approved labs to ensure its purity and safety.

The primary conditions treated are related to joint and soft tissue degenerative wear and tear related to trauma and or the aging process.

Current management is a combination of Activity Modification, Immobilization, Physical Therapy, Steroidal Injections and eventual joint replacement or spinal surgeries.

PRP is obtained from drawing blood or extracting bone marrow. Although less expensive than MSC’s, it tends to be painful as well as only offering temporary relief. As we age our own platelets become less effective, we need the more powerful new cells to push our body’s ability to heal and that is the promise of MSC stem cells.

A topical freezing spray and numbing agent is applied to the injection site. Then the frozen cells are thawed and injected into the affected area or joint, (similar to a cortisone injection procedure.)

Yes, following the injection, instructions are given on what to do and what to avoid for the next two weeks. If the patient lives locally there are three to five follow up therapy sessions using a Robotic Multi Wave Locked System (MLS Laser). This helps to reduce inflammation and swelling and to promote healing and soft tissue repair. For patients who are not local, they will be provided with an LED Infrared Light Therapy Device to be used at home to achieve a similar result.

Yes, all follow-up visits and therapy are included.

It is designed to offer long term relief and many patients who receive MSC injections are still symptom free and experiencing a higher quality of life years after their initial injection.
