We’ve got great news that just came in! Medicare has recently made a change to their Medicare plans and are now PAYING FOR Stem Cell Injections as long as you have secondary insurance!
Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy Offers Effective Pain Relief
Stem Cell therapy is used to provide pain relief for many common conditions including: knee and shoulder pain, hip pain, tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis and more.
Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy is a safe and effective treatment to help your body heal itself. It is typically administered during a normal office visit, through a single injection. Patients have reported improved pain relief and repair for the following conditions:
- Joint injuries
- Knee pain, shoulder pain and hip pain
- Pain in the wrists, fingers, ankles or toes
- Bone fractures that do not heal
- Soft tissue injuries including plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, hamstring tears and rotator cuff syndrome
- Spinal injuries causing neck pain, mid or lower back pain, or pain in the sacroiliac joints
Stem Cell injections are conveniently administered through a single injection during a normal office visit. Following the injection, patients are typically able to return to everyday, non-high impact activities within 24 to 48 hours.
What benefits does Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy offer?
- Powerful Treatment: Relieves pain associated with joints, soft tissue and spinal injuries.
- Convenient & Painless: 15 minute in office, single injection.
- All Natural & Drug-free: Over 200 different Growth Factors with anti-inflammatory effects.
- Quick & Reduced Recovery Time: Return to everyday, low impact activities.
- Safe, Non-steroidal Alternative to Surgery: Recruits your body’s stem cells to reconstruct and regenerate the injured tissue that is causing pain.
Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy Injections: $1,600 Per Injection – (Office visit is a separate charge billed directly to your insurance, and coverage varies depending on provider). As with any medical treatment, you are responsible for any amount that your insurance does not cover.

How are Stem Cells obtained for Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy?
Stem cells for stem cell recruitment therapy are obtained through amniotic fluid. Amniotic fluid contains a multitude of proteins and growth factors. Together they create an extra-cellular matrix to recruit the body’s stem cells to reconstruct and regenerate the injured tissue that is causing pain. Amniotic fluid can repair tissue damage, giving patients with arthritis, joint injuries and soft tissue injuries a treatment option that does not involve pain masking medications or surgery.
Where does the Amniotic Fluid come from?
The amniotic fluid is obtained during full-term cesarean births from healthy donors who have volunteered their placenta and amniotic fluid. All amniotic fluid is collected aseptically and tested prior to processing and determined to be eligible for transplantation by Donors Suitability Standards established by the AATB and the FDA. The products we use are FDA regulated under the 21 CFR Part 1271 and Section 361 of the Public Health and Service Act.
How Do Stem Cells Offer Pain Relief?
Stem cells take advantage of the body’s ability to repair itself. With a stem cell injection, your physician injects the amniotic fluid containing stem cells into your body. The amniotic fluid has anti-inflammatory properties, similar to cortisone and steroid shots. However, amniotic fluid goes far beyond the benefits of standard “injection therapy.”
While cortisone and other drugs only provide temporary pain relief, amniotic fluid actually restores degenerated tissue while providing pain relief. The growth factors in the amniotic fluid may recruit your body’s own stem cells, directly mitigating the repair and the regeneration of healthy tissue. Additionally, amniotic fluid injections contain hyaluronic acid, which lubricates joints and tendons, easing the pain and helping restore mobility.
Stem cells have over 200 growth factors. A growth factor is a proteins or enzyme that can grow cartilage, repair scars, reduce inflammation, take away pain, and grow bone. A stem cell can turn into any type of cell. Basically, it doesn’t know what it wants to be when it grows up … If you put it into the knee, it turns into the cells in the knee joint, it is an imitator so to speak, adapting to the environment where it is placed.
Why Do You Use Amniotic Stem Cells vs. Adult Stem Cells?
As we get older our stem cells get older. The amniotic stem cells are much more potent. The other advantage of the amniotic stem cells is that you do not have to have the painful procedure where stem cells are harvested out of your pelvis bone.
How Long Does it Take for Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy to Take Effect?
Typically it can take three to six weeks for a patient to feel the full effect of stem cell recruitment therapy. This is because the treatment utilizes the body’s own healing process.
