Stem Cell IV therapy is a cutting-edge treatment that can be beneficial to people with a wide range of degenerative, inflammatory, and neurologic conditions. In this procedure, embryonic stem cells that are sourced from the umbilical cord blood and tissue are used.
Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides stem cell IV therapy to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.
What are Stem Cells?
The body’s raw materials are known as stem cells or the cells from which all other cells with specialized functions are produced. When the conditions are appropriate in the body or lab, stem cells divide to create more cells, called daughter cells.
These daughter cells may either develop into new stem cells (self-renewal) or become specialized cells (differentiation) with a more specific function, such as brain cells, blood cells, bone cells, or heart muscle cells. The body does not have any other cell that has the natural ability to produce new types of cells.
Advantages of Stem Cell IV Therapy
Stem cell IV therapy relieves various symptoms related to aging and chronic conditions. These symptoms include:
- Stamina and energy levels
- Muscle tone and strength
- Symptoms of joint pain and arthritis
- Injuries due to sports or accidents
- Skin tone and facial appearance
- Peripheral neuropathy
- Hair regrowth
- Erectile and sexual dysfunction
Stem Cell IV Therapy – How Does it Work?
Stem cells are unique due to their ability to transform into any type of cell in the body and encourage the growth of healthy cells. Stem cell injections are used to target particular areas such as a troublesome joint or an injury to promote localized healing.
Upon being administered intravenously, stem cells travel through the bloodstream and become available to tissues and organs throughout the body. Stem cells naturally identify damage in the body, and when they reach their destination, these cells become the type of cell in the region, where they encourage healthy cell function as well as cell repair.
Tissue Regeneration with Stem Cell IV Therapy
Stem Cell IV Therapy enables the production of healthy cells to replace diseased cells (called regenerative medicine). It is possible to guide stem cells into becoming particular cells that can be used to regenerate and repair compromised or damaged tissues in people.
Individuals who might find stem cell IV therapies beneficial include those with type 1 diabetes, spinal cord injuries, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, heart disease, stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, osteoarthritis, and cancer.
Stem cells may have the potential to be developed to create new tissue for use in transplant and regenerative medicine. Researchers are continually advancing the knowledge on stem cells and their applications in the field of transplant and regenerative medicine.
Is it possible to use Stem Cell IV therapy in the treatment of diseases?
Yes. Doctors have been successful in performing stem cell transplants, also called bone marrow transplants. Stem cell transplant involves the use of stem cells to replace cells compromised by chemotherapy or disease.
They also serve as a way for the donor’s immune system to combat specific forms of cancer and blood-related conditions such as lymphoma, neuroblastoma, leukemia, and multiple myeloma. These transplants make use of adult stem cells or umbilical cord blood.
Today, researchers are testing adult stem cells to treat other conditions as well, including various degenerative conditions, such as heart failure. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for stem cell IV therapy.
