What Makes Our Process Unique
What makes Sierra Stem Cell Institute injection preparations and methods unique?
- We strive to make our injection methods as simple, natural, and effective as possible. At no point are ANY animal products used to create our PRP or stem cell preparations. We use natural and gentle methods to concentrate the patient’s OWN blood, bone marrow, and fat tissue to create a healing preparation. We do NOT use placental tissue, amniotic tissue, umbilical cord tissue or any other outside source for stem cells.
- Our PRP/Stem Cell preparation methods do NOT involve a proprietary or patented system, device, or method. Some regenerative clinics have committed to a particular proprietary brand of equipment, method, or franchise to prepare PRP and stem cells. Although this allows a quick practice set up, it does not allow the flexibility to change and adapt treatment to the individual patient, and keep up with new scientific discoveries. It also results in higher costs for treatment, resulting in higher costs to the patient.
- The characteristics of our PRP/stem cell preparations have been confirmed by independent laboratory analysis at University of Nevada, School of Medicine. We can treat patients confidently with the knowledge that our preparations have met target requirements regarding stem cell count, viability, surface marker expression, the ability to propagate in culture, platelet count, WBC count and distribution, and other pertinent factors.
- We strive to provide all treatments in a manner consistent with the highest levels of patient safety and taking extensive precautions to minimize any chance of infection. All of our treatments are carried out in a single visit on the same day. At no time is patient tissue or blood sent to an outside lab for processing or cell expansion. Finally, our PRP/stem cell preparation and tissue harvesting procedures are carried out in a sterile “clean room” environment and under sterile hoods, similar to an operating room environment. During lipoasiration and bone marrow harvesting, patients have their vital signs continuously monitored. Few practices have pursued such efforts to assure sterility and patient safety.
