inSRT Stem Cell Injection
Our physicians and research partners at BASIC have pioneered the Dr. Ty techniques for stem cell therapy using the regenerative powers of embryonic stem cells and amniotic tissue. These services are offered through BASIC's Regenerative Medicine Program and Spinal Rejuvenation Treatments using our proprietary inSRT injections using the Thaiyananthan technique, which are proprietary and performed by Neurosurgeons Dr. Thaiyananthan and Dr. Brian Oh in Orange County, California, USA.
The inSRT is a state-of-the-art epidural injection and spinal and joint rejuvenation medicine program. This biologic injection is comprised of embryonic and mesenchymal stem cells and cytokines derived from amniotic fluid, the placenta, and the umbilical cord directly after the birthing process. The primary function of inSRT is to provide extracellular tissue to protect wounds. These tissues provide a rich source of undifferentiated stem cells with unique anti-inflammatory properties that help in regenerating cells and relieving pain.
The inSRT stem cell injection method is best suited for individuals who have suffered from chronic neck and back pain, who have failed previous spinal treatments, or who suffer from weakness due to past spinal cord compression. This minimally invasive spinal procedure takes less than 45 minutes to complete and has the potential to change millions of lives, leaving an indelible mark on the field of regenerative medicine.
Procedures using similar types of stem cells have been performed on professional athletes and have produced lasting results. The inSRT injection can provide favorable results for those who have suffered from chronic pain.
Stem Cell Therapy can provide pain relief for patients suffering from the following conditions:
- Arthritic changes in the back
- Chronic Back Pain
- Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD)
- Facet Disease
- Nerve Pain
- Herniated Disc
- Spinal Cord Injury
- Musculoskeletal Injuries
Stem Cell Knowlege and Therapy 101
Stem cells are often in the news because they have an incredible potential to solve many chronic diseases. However, they are not without controversy. Many stem cells in the early days of research were obtained from aborted fetuses or from left over in vitro fertilization fetuses. This is because stem cells are originating cells that lead to the production of all other cells, and they are prevalent in the tissue of fetuses. Naturally, the connection with abortion made these stem cells controversial, and many laws were passed regulating which stem cells could be harvested.
As stem cell research progressed, though, scientists found new and less controversial ways to harvest them. For instance, stem cells could be found in the umbilical cord blood of healthy, delivered babies. In addition, researchers found ways to -reprogram- adult stem cells to act as if they were the basic cells for reconstruction of tissues. These two scientific advancements have meant that stem cells are now being used for a wide variety of chronic disease states.
inSRT stem cell therapy for chronic pain only uses ethically harvested stem cells from umbilical cord blood, the placenta, or the amniotic fluid. Using our stem cell therapy is not a question of ethics, but one of healing your chronic pain. All of our stem cells come from sources that are protected by law and are not involved in the abortion or in vitro fertilization process.
Stem Cell Functions
All stem cells have three basic properties. First, they can divide and renew themselves for an
extended period of time. This means that they can quickly create new tissue over a period of
time. When you have pain in a particular area, such as your knee, stem cells can be inserted to
rebuild your cartilage by constantly replicating and making new cartilage tissue.
Second, stem cells are unspecialized. This means that they cannot perform the distinct jobs of different tissue. For instance, a stem cell inserted into the heart cannot help the other cells contract for the heartbeat. This means that the stem cells are uniquely able to exist outside the framework of other cells and concentrate on their primary purpose.
Perhaps the most important function of stem cells is the ability to give rise to specialized cells. For instance, if the stem cells are inserted into the heart, they cannot help the heart pump, but they can help create new heart cells. This is a vital property of stem cells because most adults have a finite number of heart cells. Once those cells are damaged or destroyed due to lack of oxygen in a heart attack, the cells are not capable of reproducing in that area. Stem cells allow your body to grow fresh heart cells and replace the cells that have been damaged. Stem cells have this effect in virtually every area of the body, and it is the primary reason that they can treat chronic disease.
Types of Stem Cells
Stem cells come in a few different varieties. The most known form of stem cells is embryonic
stem cells. These are cells that come from the pre-implantment in vitro fertilization embryos, but
they do not come from embryos that have been implanted in a uterus or from aborted embryos.
In fact, the creation process for embryos is so complicated and inefficient that it would be
impossible to take cells from a womans uterus. However, many ethical questions are still raised
over IVF embryos. This is why embryonic stem cells were discovered in the umbilical cord
blood, placenta, and amniotic fluid of women. They have the same properties as embryonic
cells, but they do not depend on the loss of an embryo to create.
Another type of stem cell is an adult stem cells or somatic stem cells. These are cells that are found in mature tissue. Although they are stem cells, many are inactive or incapable of regenerating the tissue necessary to treat chronic disease. These cells need to be manipulated in the laboratory before they can become stem cells that will reproduce tissue. For this reason, they are not as effective as embryonic stem cells. Usually, the adult stem cell can only create tissue for the area that it was harvested from, such as the heart, brain, or muscle, for example.
Finally, induced pluripotent stem cells are adult stem cells that are manipulated to act like embryonic stem cells. This is still a newer area of research, but the technique has shown promise. However, it is still very difficult to convince a mature cell to devolve into an originating cell. With time and research, this may be the future of all stem cell origins because, since they are autologous, they are less likely to cause a rejection reaction.
Medical Uses for Stem Cells
The uses for stem cells are many. One of the most important ways they can help in the treatment
of disease is in the creation of new organs. Manipulated stem cells can easily grow new
hearts, lungs, kidneys, and other transplantable organs for the placement into diseased adults. Of
course, rejection is still a high possibility with these transplants, but if pluripotent stem cells are
used from the patient needing transplant, the incidence of rejection decreases.
Stem cells are also important in diseases where specific cells are destroyed. For instance, dopamine producing cells in the brain are damaged in Parkinsons disease. With stem cells, brain cells can be grown and they will naturally produce the dopamine necessary. This technique can be used to treat Alzheimers, diabetes, and arthritis. The new cells are transplanted into the patient, and they quickly take the place of the damaged cells. This treatment can also be used to treat pain conditions, because they can help to regenerate nerve tissue that has been damaged or can replace cartilage that has worn away. The sky is the limit with stem cells, and they can practically be used to combat many disease processes.
