Using the cells of the patient to heal the patient. Only cells know how to heal tissue and close wounds naturally. The best a physician can do is to move obstacles out of the way, supply materials to injured areas and leave the fight against disease and injury to the cells themselves. Using the proprietary JuvaStem process our doctors will produce a unique blend of stem cells and plasma derivatives which will be used to enhance your body's natural healing mechanism.

  • Do your treatments comply with FDA regulations
    Do your treatments comply with FDA regulations

    Yes. Our treatments involve only your own stem cells and involve no more than minimal manipulation of the cells so they are compliant.

  • What are stem cells and where do they come from?
    What are stem cells and where do they come from?

    Stem cells are the cells that control and ultimately divide and change into specific tissue types. In fact, they are called a ‘stem’ cell because the various tissues stem from this cell type. In adults, stem cells are present within different tissues and organ systems, the most common being bone marrow and fat tissues. At SRMC, we use only your own stem cells (autologous) harvested from bone marrow.

  • Is the JuvaStem Therapy procedure painful?
    Is the JuvaStem Therapy procedure painful?

    Most patients report only mild discomfort during the procedure and mild tenderness at the needle puncture sites after the procedure. We do offer sedation by our board-certified anesthesiologist should you desire to have no awareness during the procedure.

  • What happens during the JuvaStem harvest and injection?
    What happens during the JuvaStem harvest and injection?

    On your treatment day, if you are having the procedure done with sedation, we will first place an IV in your hand or arm. If you choose not to have sedation, we will not place an IV. For the JuvaStem harvest, we will have you lay either on your stomach or your back and position yourself to your comfort. If you are having sedation, that will be started once you are positioned. Your skin will be washed and draped to keep it sterile. We will inject your skin with a local anesthetic. The bone marrow is then harvested using specialized equipment, including either ultrasound or fluoroscopy for visualization during the procedure. This process is usually not painful, with only mild discomfort. After the bone marrow is harvested, we then employ our propriety process of separation and concentration to produce the JuvaStem product. Once we have the final product, we will then inject the JuvaStem product at your site of injury. Following the procedure, we will briefly monitor you in our recovery area before discharging you home.

  • What is the success rate?
    What is the success rate?

    This depends on the exact procedure. Patients with disc pain in their low back had as much as 80% improvement in pain scores for as long as 2 years post injection in one study (International Orthopedics 40.1 (2016): 135-140.). Typically, we note that 70-80% of our patients see meaningful improvements with the procedure.
