Cellular medicine does more than treat symptoms, it resolves the body's ability to heal itself.
Stem cells have the potential to treat a wide range of diseases and injuries, and based on how they are obtained and where they originate from, different stem cells have different capabilities. At Delaware Integrative Medicine, we offer cellular treatment to help reduce and heal inflammation in the body and repair damaged tissues. We use bone marrow, cord blood and adipose stem cells in our various therapies to aid in tissue repair and regeneration.
Embryonic Stem Cells - (ES)
are incredibly valuable stem cells that are formed as normal part of embryonic development, and have the potential to become any type of cell in the body, making them invaluable for treating and studying many diseases.
Tissue-specific stem cells
Tissue specific stem cells have been found in tissues such as the brain, heart, bone marrow, blood, blood vessels, skeletal muscles, skin and liver. These tissue-specific stem cells are powerful, naturally-occurring cells that can modify inflammation and promote natural healing.
Mesenchymal Stem Cells - (MCs)
are tissue or “adult” stem cells, which are specialized cells found in the skeletal tissues. They can differentiate or specialize into cartilage cells, bone cells and fat cells.
What are Exosomes, and why are they useful?
Neonatal exosomes are extracellular vesicles – or small structures within a cell – released by stem cells in response to injuries. One of the most promising uses of exosomes within Orthopedics involves rheumatoid arthritis (RA), an autoimmune disorder in which inflammation leads to pain and degradation of joints.
