THE FIVE IMPORTANT QUESTIONS TO ASK
BEFORE GETTING A STEM CELL TREATMENT
ARE THEY BOARD CERTIFIED, FELLOWSHIP TRAINED PHYSICIANS THAT SPECIALIZE 100% IN STEM CELL TREATMENTS?
We only have board certified physicians that have completed advanced fellowship training specifically in Orthopedics and Bio-Restorative Medicine. Our physicians have dedicated themselves exclusively to stem cell treatments.
DOES THIS CENTER COUNT THEIR CELLS AND CHECK VIABILITY AND APOPTOTIC COUNTS?
We utilize advanced imaging technology to harvest and implant your cells, manually process (by hand) your tissue using our proprietary protocols. We have perfected the harvesting process to maximize the stem cell yield from your own body’s tissue. We count our cells to ensure a highly-concentrated sample and complete testing to ensure that these cells are also alive, viable and ready to work. We also have the capabilities to harvest stem cells from multiple locations. We DO NOT use amniotic fluid (baby fluid) which contain dead, non-viable cells. Amniotic cells go through a rigorous cleansing system to kill any harmful or unwanted viruses such as HIV. Little to no organisms can survive that process. Because of this, we only use stem cells harvested from your own body.
We count our cells and therefore know that we are harvesting extremely high quantities of stem cells – exponentially more than average. Think about it like baking a cake. No matter how good the oven is (analogous to our advanced BIOLOGIX lab), if you don’t start out with the right ingredients, and if those ingredients aren’t in the correct rations, why would you expect to get a high quality cake? If you consult with anyone else about stem cells, we would encourage you to ask them if they are counting their cells, and furthermore – if they are determining the cell viability and apoptotic counts.
DO THEY EVALUATE FOR AND TREAT BONE BRUISES?
At iOBX, we use precision-guided imaging and live X-Ray (Fluoroscopic) imaging to treat painful, infrequently detected bone bruising.
WHAT DO THEY DO TO OPTIMIZE THE FINAL STEM CELL PRODUCT TO BE USED?
In our dedicated onsite, advanced BIOLOGIX lab, your own tissue is manually processed using our proprietary protocols to optimize the amount of “good stuff” while minimizing the amount of “bad stuff” we are implanting into and around your injured, damaged and / or arthritic area(s). This is opposed to using a “kit” and machine that processes cells in a less customized fashion, making it impossible to achieve the same concentrations and ratios when comparing to manual preparation like we use at iOBX. Your preparation here at iOBX will contain more cells in a more “purified” formulation.
DO THEY HAVE PATIENTS THAT YOU CAN CONTACT FOR INSIGHT INTO TREATMENT?
We believe in transparency with our patients and want you to have access to others who have already had treatments with us and learn about their experience and treatment success with the iOBX team.
