Where do Stem Cell treatments come from?

Stem cells can come from a variety of sources within the body. Typically, they are harvested from bone marrow of the hip via a semi-invasive procedure that allows a provider to extract the active cells. Another way to harvest stem cells is to perform a more invasive procedure called a Lipogem. This procedure allows stem cells to be extracted from fat tissue which is then processed to concentrate the active cells. At Rejuvinix our regenerative therapies do not require any invasive procedures. We utilize the newest biotechnology through a cryopreserved extracellular matrix derived from amniotic fluid, which is ready for immediate patient use.

Are PRP or Stem-cells covered by insurance?

Since PRP and stem-cells are so new to medicine, insurance does not yet cover the cost of these particular treatments.

Can I receive Stem-cell injections in more than one joint?

Yes, as long as you are experiencing discomfort or decreased function in multiple joints.

Will these therapies help me if I’ve had joint replacement surgery?

No, if you have had a total joint replacement our injection based therapies will not help because your natural joint is no longer there and has been replaced with metal or plastic. If you have had partial joint surgery our therapies can still help.
