What is Stem Cell Therapy?

ConciergecareNP offers stem cell therapy for arthritis, autoimmune conditions and chronic inflammation. The stem cells come from umbilical cord blood from newborn babies.

While everyone has stem cells, the concentration of these cells decreases as a person ages. So, naturally, the greatest concentration of stem cells comes from newborns. After a baby is born, cord blood is left in the umbilical cord and placenta. It is relatively easy to collect, with no risk to the mother or baby. It contains haematopoietic (blood) stem cells: rare cells normally found in the bone marrow.

Haematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) can make every type of cell in the blood – red cells, white cells and platelets. They are responsible for maintaining blood production throughout our lives. They have been used for many years in bone marrow transplants to treat blood diseases.
