Stem Cell Therapy

 
 

Treats Complications from Diseases Such as:

  • COPD
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Rheumatological diseases

Other injuries treated include:

  • Surgical wounds
  • Tendonitis
  • Acute muscle strain
  • Fibrosis
  • Arthritis
  • Cartilage defects
  • Meniscal injury
  • and many other soft-tissue problems
 

Ideal Candidates Have

  • Physician-diagnosed soft tissue stress or damage
  • Determination to follow a healing process—not looking for a “quick fix”
  • Strong immune system
  • Healthy eating habits
  • Optimism (very important)

Patients Should Expect

  • During the first six weeks after the procedure you will be undergoing an anti-inflammatory phase of healing. During this time you might experience a decrease in pain or no change at all.
  • During the next six months to a year or more you will be undergoing the regenerative phase of healing. This is where biologic treatments break from traditional pharmaceutical treatments: when they stop working, biologics are just starting to do their work.

About Stem Cell Therapy

Dr. Kochert is 100% Pro-Life and believes that the harvesting of embryonic stem cells is in fact taking a human life and therefore is immoral, unethical, and antithetical to a physician’s oath to “first do no harm”.

Adult stem cells are easy to control, easy to isolate, and does not involve killing a human to isolate. There have been no case reports of tumors or other adverse effects.

Stem cell procedures have been widely researched and practiced. Using your own stem cells to regenerate and stimulate your body’s own healing mechanisms is safe and has been shown to be very successful. Most often, stem cell procedures are used as an alternative to traditional orthopedic surgery. However, stem cell procedures can be used to address complications from chronic diseases such as COPD, Multiple Sclerosis, and Rheumatological diseases.

The Adipose Derived Stem Cell Procedure

  1. Consultation: It all begins with a consultation with our board certified physician. He will review your past medical records, imaging reports, and lab work. Then after taking a complete history and doing a physical he will recommend further testing if needed and let you know if you are a good candidate for a stem cell procedure.
  2. Health Optimization: We want this procedure to work! We will recommend supplement or pharmaceutical interventions based on your testing to optimize your health before the procedure.”
  3. ADSC Procedure: Once optimized you will be ready for the procedure. You will undergo a minimally invasive liposuction procedure. Then while you rest, our physician will isolate your stem cells in our onsite stem cell laboratory utilizing the most cutting edge isolation protocols.
  4. Delivery: Once the stem cells have been isolated and concentrated they will be delivered back to you either via IV or injected in a joint. All injections are done under imaging guiding to insure proper placement.
  5. Regeneration: Now the healing begins. Unlike pharmaceutical treatments, which work quickly and then, wear off; biologics like ADSC initiate a healing cascade that sees continued improvements up to two years out.

ADSC – Adipose Derived Stem Cells

ADSC is the isolation and concentration of adult stem cells from adipose tissue (fat). Extracting adipose tissue is one of the beginning steps in a stem cell procedure. ADSC is extracted by doing a ‘mini’ liposuction in the abdominal area. Later, this will be used during your stem cell procedure.

PRP – Platelet Rich Plasma

PRP is obtained through drawing blood. After a patient’s blood is drawn, the blood is centrifuged. When the blood is centrifuged, we carefully prepare your PRP by hand to achieve concentrate 10 times or more than concentrate in whole blood.

PPP – Platelet Poor Plasma

PPP is extract through drawing blood. It is put into an ointment that you can later apply after the procedure. This mixture prevents scarring.
