NovaGenix Medical Director Dr. Sigman Providing Stem Cell Injections

     Often patients come into our clinic and ask us “What is Stem Cell Therapy?” We explain to our patients that Stem cells are rather unique cells with beneficial properties in helping patients recover from a variety of medical conditions. They are capable of transforming into many different types of cells and can quickly and easily replicate within the human body into whatever types of cells that need to be repaired or replaced. The use of stem cells has always shown great promise in the treatment of several medical conditions and has allowed doctors to help countless patients improve the quality of their lives through the use of these treatments.

     The regenerative properties of Stem cells play a crucial role in both the current and future treatments of disease and injuries. When Mesenchymal stem cells undergo division, the new cells can either remain the same or transform (differentiate) themselves into new cells. Stem cells are unspecialized and unique in their ability to divide and renew themselves for very long periods of time, so the process of healing continues for many weeks after the treatment.

     Fortunately, stem cells are capable of replicating themselves several times over, a process that is known as proliferation.  This process, as well as the stem cells ability to differentiate into multiple types of cells, is the basis for our treatment in our Jupiter and Fort Lauderdale clinics. Mesenchymal stems cells are currently being harvested from umbilical cord tissue and used in the treatment of many diseases and chronic degenerative conditions like arthritis and neuropathy, to name a few. 

     Our allogenic Cord blood stem cell clinic in Palm Beach County Florida uses only the highest quality stem cells that can be infused into a patient’s bloodstream or injected locally into an area of injury or chronic pain where they may help to initiate the body’s natural healing processes our and cellular regeneration for many types of tissues or cells in the patient’s body. 

Stem Cell and Platelet Rich Plasma Preparations at NovaGenix in Jupiter, Florida

     At NovaGenix our comprehensive stem cell treatment protocols employ well-targeted combinations of allogeneic human umbilical cord stem cells and autologous platelet rich plasma therapy to help treat diseases and conditions like:

·       Autoimmune disorders

·       Heart Failure

·       Spinal injuries

·       Neuropathy

·       Osteoarthritis

·       Rheumatoid Arthritis

·       And more….

We also treat chronic pain and acute orthopedic conditions and injuries to the:

·       Neck

·       Shoulders

·       Elbows

·       Wrist

·       Hips

·       Lower Back

·       Knees

·       Ankles

     Stem Cell Therapy at NovaGenix can involve the injection of stem cells into a damaged area of the body, such as a patient’s knees or lower back where they can divide and differentiate into new, healthier cells and repair the damaged tissue causing the pain and discomfort allowing patients to live normal lives again and regain their ability to continue the activities they enjoy like walking, swimming, playing golf and biking for example.

Stem Cell Therapy in Palm Beach County at NovaGenix can Help Patients Recover Faster

     Stem cells are “de-differentiated pluripotent” cells, which means that they can continue to self-replicate and divide to create even more stem cells; which will hopefully develop and grow into the specialized tissues we are trying to repair, like cartilage, nerve or muscle tissue. We often use stem cell therapy together with Platelet Rich Plasma, (or PRP) treatments. PRP is a procedure where we take a patient’s own blood and separates the platelets from the red blood cells. 

     The platelets contain growth factors and cytokines, which are the cells responsible for healing, and concentrates it to levels up to 14 times greater than the patents normal blood sample. By injecting the concentrated PRP into an area of injury, we can accelerate the process of healing by providing the body with much higher levels of the cells that it needs to repair and regenerate new tissue and cells. This is a noninvasive alternative to surgery which has helped counted patients recover from their injuries and chronic pain.

     It’s an exciting time in medicine to be able to help rebuild damaged cells and tissues in the body from within.  Stem cell therapy can help a patient transform a damaged or diseased area into a factory of self-healing, so to speak. There have been many studies and research that supports the benefits of stem cell therapy. Studies conducted on patients with knee osteoarthritis, for example, showed that at the end of a five-year follow-up period, patients who had received stem cells showed significant improvement in the alleviation of pain, mobility, and repair to cartilage, bone and muscle, as compared to the control population that received no stem cell treatment. 

     Stem cell injections are beneficial because they promote the regrowth of cartilage and stop chronic inflammation which causes pain and reduces mobility. There is more work to be done but the potential for healing is no doubt exciting and a reason why stem cell treatments are becoming increasingly popular as a non-surgical alternative.

This subsequent lab panel is necessary for males undergoing Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) through NovaGenix Health and Wellness. It allows physicians to assess the patient's response to prescribed medications, covering sex hormone levels, thyroid function, adrenal health, hematocrit, and liver and kidney function. The panel includes tests such as:

  • Complete Blood Count
  • Comprehensive Metabolic Panel
  • Testosterone (Free and Total)
  • Estradiol Sensitive
  • Thyroid Stimulating Hormone
  • Prostate Specific Antigen

Each test serves a specific purpose in monitoring overall health and treatment effectiveness. When required, Dr Mackey may require LH and FSH (Luteinizing hormone, follicle stimulating hormone) SHBG (Sex hormone binding globulin) or any other tests which may be important for your health and optimizing your hormones.

The Comprehensive Hormone and Wellness Panel for Women offers a foundational assessment of sex hormones, thyroid function, adrenal health, metabolic activity, and overall well-being. This panel serves as a diagnostic tool for identifying testosterone and estrogen deficiencies, assessing health risks, and detecting potential thyroid issues before considering hormone replacement therapy. Additionally, it includes insights into hematocrit (red blood cell volume), as well as liver and kidney function. The panel encompasses various tests such as:

  • Complete Blood Count (CBC)
  • Complete Metabolic Panel
  • Testosterone (free and total)
  • Estradiol
  • Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH)
  • Progesterone

When indicated, Dr. Mackey may require additional tests such as Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH), and IGF-1 and Cortisol.
