Stem Cell Treatment for Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s Disease
Stem cell treatment is now available in our Scottsdale practice for Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s disease. Stem cell treatments have been used for 100s of years abroad and now in the U.S. it is becoming well known as a powerful regenerative therapy for many health conditions.
Stem cells regenerate tissue, modulate the immune system response, and dramatically decrease inflammation. Any cell or tissue that is diseased or weak can be replaced with higher quality cells. A stem cell is a cell that can reproduce and differentiate into other types of cells.
Cellular regeneration is FDA cleared and Biogenix (provider of our stem cells) abides by the most stringent medical guidelines to insure the safety and comfort for our patients. Biogenix is the only supplier of stem cells in North America that the VA chose to use, thereby providing coverage for its veterans.
Conventional therapies include opoids and steroid injections for pain management. Opoids have many interactions with other medications, are addictive, and do nothing to heal the tissue, so the disease progresses. Steroids block the pain temporarily but weaken the tissue, so the disease continues to progress. Surgery is extremely invasive and removes part or all of the large intestine. The cost of surgery is in the thousands and you will never be well again with having partial or no large intestine at all.
Some doctors call PRP (platelet rich plasma) and amniotic tissue stem cell therapy. But these contain growth factors, not live cells. Therefore patients report mixed results, some get pain relief and some report no difference at all. Usually the benefits are temporary and you will need repeated injections. Stem cells do not mask pain. They get to the root cause, which is diseased tissue.
Stem cells can regenerate into many types of tissue:
cartilage (prevents joint replacement therapy)
nerve tissue (used for MS, Alzeimers, Parkinsons)
organ tissue (such as the large intestine)
Getting a stem cell treatment is simple and non-invasive. One does not need medical clearance as anesthesia is not required and the stem cells are classified as immune privileged. So no tissue matching is required.
