Amniotic Stem Cells Facts vs. Fiction

The search for the “holy grail” is an ongoing quest for human instinct and survival. The hottest topic in the stem cell medical industry is now about amniotic stem cells.

What are amniotic stem cells and what's the power and intrigue about them?

Amniotic stem cells are a mixture of stem cells that can be obtained from the amniotic fluid of a baby fetus in its sac. There are few cells in the amniotic fluid or as some call it “fetal urine.” Though rich in growth factors and certain other anti-inflammatory agents, their regenerative capacity is limited when compared to mesenchymal stem cells.

However, many commercially available amniotic products are being used as regenerative treatments specifically in orthopedics. The use of amniotic stem cells to reverse anti-aging has no scientific or medical backing yet, it is being marketed as a “beauty trend” to combat aging.

Further, the question is being a foreign source to your body, are amniotic products safe and would they be effective in your body?

How does this compare with using your own stem cells to restore and naturally regenerate?

We don’t have definitive answers to these questions yet. The hype around amniotic stem cells can be a dangerous claim. It's often assumed that as you get older your own cells may not be as strong as needed to effectively repair, although there is no scientific basis to that argument.

Currently, stem cell treatments, especially in orthopedics, can help repair and regenerate, but they do not turn the clock back by many years as some may assume.

Sorry no “fountain of youth” yet!

Another reason patients may look toward an outside source is that they are apprehensive about the harvesting process. Though again, harvesting your own cells is a very short minimally invasive procedure and leaves absolutely no footprint or scars.

Some reasons practices may not harvest your own cells can be reasons of convenience, lack of familiarity and experience.

For most of us, it’s easy to pull something out of a prepared vial and inject rather than performing a laborious process of preparing your own cells.

These vials of amniotic fluid/cells become like “shelf products” and are used as an as-needed basis with no real evidence of their efficacy and very little understanding of the potential risks involved. Right now, there are more questions than answers when it comes to amniotic products, hopefully, in time we will learn more about them.

A more effective and promising, non-surgical treatment is regenerative cell therapy. Regenerative cell therapy or “stem cell therapy” in mainstream terms, utilize your own regenerative cells to heal and restore your damaged ligaments, cartilage or menisci, whether it’s a knee, shoulder, hip or any painful joint in your body. Give your body a chance to heal itself naturally with your own cells rather than rely on an outside source.

Optimal Athletic Performance Requires Elite Sports Medicine Care

 

sports medicine

As an athlete, we all know that optimal athletic performance not only requires strenuous, consistent training and stamina, but it also requires the ability to quickly deal with injuries and declining performance. Serious athletes are always on the search for top-notch sports medicine practice that performs non-invasive and alternative treatments with integrity.

One such alternative that has gained popularity in recent years has been regenerative cell therapy, popularly known as “stem cell treatments”. This treatment has the ability to regenerate and restore injured or worn out tissues, leading to quick recovery and continued sporting activity.

Continuous "wear and tear" is an inevitable issue for most pro, amateur and everyday athletes where the search for sustainable good health becomes the "holy grail".

At PreciseCare, Dr. Gaurav Goswami and his staff have over 25+ years in advanced non-invasive treatments, regenerative stem cell therapy, tissue regeneration and quick recovery time for their patients. Unlike most conventional doctors, Dr. Goswami's innovative and unique approach to sports injury, pain management, and any prior health conditions are holistic and great consideration is given to the individual's overall well-being.

Dr. Goswami evaluates the patient's pain problem such as knee pain, shoulder pain, elbow pain, hip pain or ankle pain not just as an isolated issue, but he performs a full, comprehensive diagnostic exam to see what caused the problem, and the contributing factors that surround your condition. With regenerative cell therapy, the belief is the body is designed to heal itself using our own cells without any unnecessary surgeries or harsh interventions.

Many of our patient athletes have shared benefits from our customized PreciseCare regenerative cell treatment, helping them not only return to play but return to performance.

Here is what our patient and avid mountain biker, Jim P. had to say :

"I love to mountain bike, sometimes going on multi-day rides in the Sierras. My ankle was starting to bark back after long rides due to arthritis incurred after multiple sprains in my 20's. And I was no longer able to run because the pounding severely irritated the ankle.

Dr. Goswami performed his miraculous stem cell injections 8 weeks ago, and I am already biking pain-free. Yesterday I went in for my follow-up, and imaging showed that the joint surface was already smoothing out. Dr. Goswami said cell proliferation would occur for 8 months, which means I may have 6 more months of improvement ahead!

I am super-excited about my mountain biking continuing, and am dreaming that I may sometime even be able to run a bit again.

Now a bit about the team. Sandra in front is super-helpful and friendly. Ruby in the back room couldn't be more supportive and kind, and Dr. Goswami is:

* Understated. He never sold the procedure and under-promised likely results.

* Patient. He took his time explaining the process, my condition, and how results are achieved. I never felt he was rushing anything.

* The best at the procedure. Much technique is involved in stem cell treatment, both in where the cells are pulled from an insertion of the cells.

Lastly, without violating patient privacy, know that another ankle patient I am close to was limping severely before the procedure with bone-on-bone and no hope of a surgical correction and after only 6 weeks post-treatment says his ankle has never felt better.

I am a believer in this new miracle treatment. Dr. Goswami is the best in SoCal at providing it."
