Perinatal Cell Therapy: Regenerative Therapy in Irving, TX
Perinatal Cell Therapy
Our bodies use stem cells to repair themselves; however, our own stem cells are often inhibited by injury, disease, metabolic dysfunction, and even certain medications. Perinatal tissue is a regenerative cell based therapy that can be used to replace or supplement patient’s own cells or tissues with cells or tissue products performing the same basic function.

How Is it Obtained?
At time of C-section most birth tissue is medically discarded; however, for those who have consented to donate their birth tissue and have passed rigorous, comprehensive medical and social testing it is set aside and regenerative cells are isolated for use cell therapy. All birth tissue products are obtained from C-section deliveries from healthy, live, full term births. These donations are made with the permission of the parents and under careful ethical restrictions. The process is safe for all parties involved and poses no risk of pain or harm to the mother and child. Birth tissue donations are meticulously audited for healthy, high-quality regenerative cells to be used for Perinatal Cell Therapy.
Please note, the donors and tissues are obtained in accordance with standards established by the AATB (American Academy of Tissue Banks) and US FDA requirements. Even though the tissue is strictly regulated by the FDA as a biologic the therapy is considered investigational and experimental and is not covered by health insurance.
How Does Perinatal Cell Therapy Work?
Regenerative therapies aid and supplement the natural healing mechanisms of the body. These cell based therapies employ the activation of stem cells to stimulate renewal of tissue damaged by injury. Regenerative tissue cells have advanced growth factors, and they secrete cytokines, inflammatory response regulating proteins, to manage the body’s response to injury.
Perinatal therapy is administered via a localized injection at the site of your affected area. The visit is a 15 minute procedure performed under ultrasound imaging.
Will I Get Results?
On average, many patients report improvement as soon as six to twelve weeks from the procedure; however, if the condition is more severe it may take longer to experience relief. There is no need for time off of work or for a lengthy recovery period like with invasive surgery, and many patients return to work on the same day of their procedure. Your doctor will work with you to get you back to your normal physical activity routine as soon as possible to make sure your body has the maximum opportunity for the full benefit of the procedure. As with any medical procedure, there are no guarantees of results and each patients’ response will vary. Some patients may need to repeat the procedure months or years later, so discussing options for your specific needs is key.
