FAQ's

1

WHAT IS REGENERATIVE MEDICINE

Regenerative medicine is a burgeoning interdisciplinary field that encompasses a number of specialized therapies designed to help regenerate and potentially restore function in diseased, injured, and aging tissues, thereby promoting the body’s own innate ability to heal itself.

2

WHAT ARE STEM CELLS?

Stem cells are unique cells from which all other cells are derived. Simply stated, stem cells have the ability to replicate and differentiate into multiple tissue types and are used to promote healing in damaged tissues. The two main types of stem cells are embryonic (pluripotent) and adult stem cells (unipotent & multipotent). Embryonic stem cells (ESC) are controversial due to the fact that a human embryo must be destroyed to harvest the cells, and the cells themselves can differentiate into all cells types and proliferate uncontrollably, thereby posing certain dangers like tumor formation. Adult stem cells (ASC) are effective, but they have a more limited ability to give rise to various types of tissue in the body and they have a pre-programmed timeframe in which they can work in their regenerative capacity. However, they do not carry the ethical issues or the risks posed by ESC and are the type of stem cells used here at PRM.

3

HOW ARE STEM CELLS HARVESTED?

Adult stem cells may be harvested from a number of tissues in the body, such as the bone marrow, peripheral blood, and fat. They are also harvested from umbilical cords or cord blood, placental tissue, and amniotic tissue.

4

WHAT CONDITIONS CAN STEM CELL THERAPY TREAT?

Research shows that adult stem cell therapy can be effective in treating a number of different diseases and injuries. Some of the conditions we treat include:
Neurological Conditions:
• Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
• Parkinson’s Disease (PD)
• Alzheimer’s Disease (AD)
• Cerebral Palsy (CP)
Cardiovascular Conditions:
• Heart Disease
• Coronary Artery Disease (CAD)
• Stroke
Respiratory Conditions:
• Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
Musculosketal Conditions:
• Osteoarthritis (OA)
• Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD)
• Muscle Strains
• Joint Injuries

5

WHAT IS PLATELET-RICH PLASMA (PRP)?

Platelet-Rick Plasma (PRP) is a preparation made with a patient’s own blood that concentrates the platelets, (aka thrombocytes), into the plasma, or liquid portion of whole blood, through a centrifugation process. When these platelets are activated, they release growth-factors which are capable of initiating a cascade of events that accelerates the healing of injured, and even aging tissues, by stimulating new cell growth.

6

WHAT CONDITIONS CAN BE TREATED WITH PRP THERAPY?

PRP can be injected into damaged joints, tendons, and muscles to help speed the healing process, thereby alleviating pain and increasing mobility. It can also be used cosmetically to help regenerate lost collagen and elastin in aging skin, which can potentially reduce wrinkles and improve skin coloration, texture, and overall appearance.

7

WHAT OTHER REGENERATIVE THERAPIES DO YOU OFFER AT PRM?

We offer a variety of therapeutic modalities designed to enhance the efficacy of our cell therapy programs, each while providing its own healing benefits. Some of these include:
• Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)
• Enhanced External Counter Pulsation (EECP)
• Periodic Acceleration Therapy (PAT)
• Intermittent Hypoxia Therapy (IHT)
• Pulsed Electromagnetic Frequency (PEMF)
• Magnatherm Short-Wave Diathermy Therapy (MSDT)
• Extracorporeal Shock-Wave Therapy (ESWT)
• Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)
• LED Light Therapy
• Hyperthermic Ozone Carbonic Acid Transdermal Therapy (HOCATT)
• Intravenous (IV) Therapies
• Injection Therapies

8

AM I A CANDIDATE FOR STEM CELLS OR ANY OTHER REGENERATIVE THERAPIES?

A thorough review of your medical history, including labs and diagnostic testing may be required in order to determine your eligibility for stem cells and/or any other regenerative therapies we have to offer. This will require a consultation with the doctor.

9

HOW CAN I SCHEDULE A CONSULTATION?

You can call us at (949) 367-8870 or (800) 300-1063 or you may email us at dasdoinc@gmail.com. We will send you a New Patient Packet which will include a medical history form, privacy and legal forms, and consent form(s) allowing us to obtain your medical records from previous physicians. We may also send you test kits to determine various problems such as heavy metal toxicity, metabolic disorders, and/or abnormal intestinal microorganisms. Once we receive the completed packet and your medical records, we can schedule a consultation, either in person or by phone, with the doctor. During the one to one and a half hour consultation, the doctor will review your history and any test results obtained in order to develop, along with you, a treatment program appropriate and individualized to you and your condition.

10

WHAT CAN I EXPECT WHEN I ARRIVE FOR TREATMENT?

You will be greeted by our friendly front office staff, who will take your vital signs, verify your paperwork, and welcome you into our clinic with a tour of our facility and introductions to our medical team and administrative staff members. A thorough history and physical assessment will be performed by the doctor in order to confirm or alter any tentative treatment program already developed during your initial consultation period. Once completed, you will begin your therapy program. Each modality will be thoroughly explained and you’ll have the opportunity to have your questions answered before receiving any treatment proposed. Your comfort and peace of mind during your time with us is as important as your education about and outcome of the therapies you will receive. Our goal is to help you heal and make you feel at home during your time at Personalized Regenerative Medicine!
