Ongoing Research Participation

We enroll our patients in ongoing research protocols and data system for collection & analysis of best outcome results from therapies. We keep records of procedures performed in our outcomes database & in shared and published databases. Patients are always treated with the best protocols & treatments based on the latest research data & informed consent on investigational nature of treatments.  Strict sterile protocols & universal precautions are followed by out office and staff.

The Difference

Treatments at other Clinics :

"Patch up" treatments like, addicting pain medications, Steroid injection, surgery (many side effects including weight gain & increased blood sugar, damage to kidneys, heart, stroke & gastric ulcer from NSAIDs.)

May not know how to use ultrasound during the injections which is very critical in ensuring a safe & accurate injection. May use xray with unnecessary radiation for injections instead of ultrasound.

PRP & Sonic wave (ESWT) not used to enhance the effects of Stem Cells.

May not offer option of different bone stem cell types. (only offer drilling bones or low quality umbilical stem cells.)

May use poorly trained non-physician assistants to evaluate & perform injections.

Not FDA compliant.

Treatments at Our Clinic :

Treating the root cause of the problem by regenerating and repairing the damaged regions. Good safety profile with body products from own body.

Precision ultrasound guided injection to joints without any radiation to ensure safe delivery of stem cells & PRP to the correct location. (Shown to increase positive results by 20-40% vs. without ultrasound)

Other modalities like PRP & Sonic Wave use to focus on the whole joint and treating different parts of it instead of just treating one out of several diseased structures in the joint.

Several types of stem cell including Adipose (fat), bone marrow and umbilical cord derived options available.

Needle Free Air-Jet Pain pre Injections option.

We perform our procedures at a private Room by Medical Office Towers* in Los Angeles, with easy access to many Hospitals, Ranked in the top 10 USA Hospitals.

Research Papers

For years, we have done thorough research, gathered results data of patients, and gotten reviews from patients, all with a single purpose in mind – to give you adequate information that will allow you make the best decision with regards to treatment of your condition.

1. Amniotic Fluid Cell Therapy to Relieve Disc-Related Low Back Pain and Its Efficacy Comparison with Long-Acting Steroid Injection

There are a lot of problems associated with the treatment of patients with degenerated discs with or without disc prolapse, nerve compression, desiccation, or bulge. Most patients with low back pain belong to the geriatric population. Low back pain in this group of patients is associated with spondylosis, osteoporosis, spondyloathrosis, and other complications. This study analyzes the effect of amniotic fluid cell therapy in the relief of low back pain in 42 patients, and compares it to that offered by long-acting steroid injection.

2. Amniotic fluid stem cells and their application in cell-based tissue regeneration

Advances in stem cell biotechnology hold great promise in the field of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. Of interest are marrow mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), embryonic stem cells (ESCs), and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). In addition, amniotic fluid stem cells (AFSCs) have attracted attention as a viable choice following the search for an alternative stem cell source. Investigators are interested in these cells because they come from the amniotic fluid that is routinely discarded after birth. There have been multiple investigations conducted worldwide in an attempt to better understand AF-SCs in terms of their potential use in regenerative medicine. In this review, the author(s) give a brief introduction of amniotic fluid followed by a description of the cells present within this fluid. Their history related to stem cell discovery in the amniotic fluid as well as the main characteristics of AF-SCs are discussed. Finally, they elaborate on the potential for these cells to promote regeneration of various tissue defects, including fetal tissue, the nervous system, heart, lungs, kidneys, bones, and cartilage.

3. Human amniotic fluid stem cell injection therapy for urethral sphincter regeneration in an animal model

Stem cell injection therapies have been proposed to overcome the limited efficacy and adverse reactions of bulking agents. However, most have significant limitations, including painful procurement, requirement for anesthesia, donor site infection and a frequently low cell yield. Recently, human amniotic fluid stem cells (hAFSCs) have been proposed as an ideal cell therapy source. In this study, the researchers investigated whether periurethral injection of hAFSCs can restore urethral sphincter competency in a mouse model. Link to the study >>>>> HERE

Review & Testimonials/Case Examples

 “I’m 73 yo and have torn meniscus and OA. 3 orthos told me I needed knee replacement. Heard about stem cell and had umbilical stem cells injected then my PRP injected a month later. My knee doesn’t hurt nor buckle any more. It does still get ‘tired’ and a little sore but it’s only been about 6 wks since stem cells. … I still have personal trainers but all exercises are done while I’m seated.”

Bobbi S.

“I am receiving treatment for severe osteoarthritis of right ankle.

I have previously consulted two surgeons and was a considered a candidate for ankle fusion with no cartilage left in my ankle. . My mobility problems was getting severe but ankle fusion was terrifying due to permanent lame condition that would result with a “successful” outcome to control pain.

I have been treated with PRP followed 6 weeks later by autologous stem cells from fatty tissue taken from my mid-riff, then PRP again after another 6 weeks.

5 months after the initial treatment I have improved greatly with regard to pain and functioning of my ankle. I used to walk with difficulty, for limited distances and use a cane. Now I only use a cane if I am going for a very long walk or a hike.”

Introduction About the Topic

Scientists have had a working knowledge of the therapeutic effects of the tissue and fluid that houses a newborn baby. The amniotic sac and amniotic fluid is rich in cellular components, collagen substrates, amino acids, cytokines, growth factors, and carbohydrates. These elements enhance movement of new cells to the affected site (of injury) and boost healing of injured tissues.

The human amniotic membrane is made up of 2 conjoined layers namely the chorion and the amnion. It forms the inner lining of the placenta or the amniotic sac. To use the amniotic membrane as an allograft, it will be harvested immediately after birth. That’s the first step. Thereafter, it is cleaned, sterilized, and dehydrated or cryopreserved. Most medical products that use chorion, amnion, amniotic fluid, and umbilical cord are being examined for the treatment of various health conditions, such as venous ulcers, chorionic full-thickness diabetic lower-extremity ulcers, knee osteoarthritis, ophthalmic conditions, and plantar fasciitis. These products are made into formulas such as patches, which may be used as covers on wounds, as particulates

If you suffer from sport injuries, arthritis, or chronic pain, you may fell that all hope is lost or that you are out of options. This should not be the case. Amniotic fluid injection enhance the repair and regeneration of tissues without surgery.

An amniotic fluid injection utilizes an all-natural product that has a rich concentration of growth factors, collagens, proteins, cytokines, and hyaluronan. These components function together to enhance the healing process.

Patients who have obtained amniotic fluid injections have experienced pain relief and repair for the following;

  • Soft tissue injuries such as golfer’s elbow, tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis, and rotator cuff syndrome.
  • Injuries to the joint: elbows, hips, knees, fingers, wrist, toes, and shoulders.
  • Spinal injuries: sacroiliac joints, lower back pain, mid back pain, neck pain.
  • Osteoarthritis of knee, hip, shoulder and other joints.

It has been established that fresh amniotic membrane is rich in fibronectin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid, along with cytokines, growth factors, and anti-inflammatory proteins like interleukin-1 receptor antagonist. Studies have shown that amniotic membrane tissue has antimicrobial, antifibrolastic, and anti-inflammatory properties. Human amniotic membrane (HAM) is considered non-immunogenic. Research and clinical experience has shown that HAM does not cause any substantial response from the immune system. The properties of HAM are retained in a cryopreserved form of the tissue, and also in dehydrated human amniotic membrane products. This results in availability of tissues with a steady regenerative potential. As a plus, a particular dehydrated human amniotic membrane product eluted growth factors into saline while also stimulating in vitro and in vivo migration of mesenchymal stem cells.

Current Treatment at Other Clinics

The current treatment methods for degenerative diseases have their drawbacks: opioids have a number of side effects, and are a bit dangerous. Surgery alters the natural structure of the body (and sometimes may be unsuccessful). Injections on its own is quite beneficial to many patients, but have little to no effect at the cellular level nor do they encourage self-repair.

We are different from many other clinics who offer stem cell or PRP.   Other clinics may not use ultrasound during the injections which is very critical in ensuring a safe & accurate injection.  They may also not offer option of bone marrow derived stem cell, Adipose derived stem cell & umbilical cord stem cell.  They in effect expose patients to more invasive treatments like drilling bones without offering other easier options.  They also may use xray with unnecessary radiation for injections that can be easily avoided in most cases by using ultrasound.  Furthermore, they may not have proper knowledge of how PRP & Sonic wave (ESWT) can enhance the effects of Stem Cells.  These other modalities are used by us to focus on the whole joint and treating different parts of it instead of just treating one out of several diseased structures in the joint. 

Safe Non Surgical Option

We use a combination of newest cutting edge technology in regenerative medicine to stimulate body’s own repair ability to reverse aging and damage.   We use a careful combination of Stem Cells, PRP and Sonic Waves (ESWT) as part of treatment plan designed by the doctor to treat the body.    These are safe investigational treatments that have shown very promising & safe results in thousands of treatments over the 10-20 years in Europe and USA.   They don’t involve using any medications or drugs.  

What Does ESWT, PRP & Stem Cell Therapy Do?

The researchers believe that the therapy works by:

Releasing cytokines into the body to prevent further damage to cartilage and reduce pain and inflammation.

Preventing inflammation that can make osteoarthritis worse.

Creating healthy new cartilage tissues.

Many patients experience improvements in the treated area and other areas, like in a Mayo Clinic study where patients benefited in both knees after experiencing injections in only one.

What makes our facility special?

At our Los Angeles facility, we have invented modern approaches to orthopedic care. Our approach to treatment is second to none. The harvesting process does not involve any form of drilling, and the stem cells are purified and tested for quality before injection. We also employ ultrasound to help in the precise placement of high dose stem cells at the required site. These cells will then perform their duty, promoting the formation of new tissues. Please note that this process only occurs if the cells have been injected to the exact site. We are experts in this and has seen positive outcome with our treatments. Our licensed physicians have undergone intense training running into thousands of hours, and so, you can be sure that you are in safe hands.
