Regenerative Medicine/Stem Cell Therapy in Chalfont
With Regenerative Medicine Stem Cell Therapy in our office we utilize Wharton’s jelly, a gelatinous substance in the umbilical cord that provides cushioning and support to the umbilical vein and arteries. Whartons Jelly is known to be a rich source of cytokines, growth factors, proteins and mesenchymal stem cells. After extensive research, Wharton’s Jelly is unparalleled in its potential in regenerative medicine. We use Wharton’s Jelly for regenerative medicine to apply healing factors and mesenchymal stem cells to help restore our patients quality of life.

Frequently Asked Questions: Stem Cells
Stem cells are the basic building blocks of human tissue. They have the ability to repair, rebuild and rejuvenate tissues throughout the body. When disease or injury strikes, stem cells respond to specific signals and set out to facilitate the healing process by differentiating into specialized cells. These specialized cells then release healing growth factors in response to the distress cell signal in an injured or pathologic area of the body required for the body’s repair.
Our human cell and tissue products are derived from the umbilical cords of healthy, full-term deliveries. Our products do not contain any embryonic or fetal tissue.
Comprehensive medical and social histories of the donors are obtained and reviewed. All tissues are procured, processed and tested in accordance with FDA requirements to minimize potential risks of disease transmission to recipients. Infectious disease testing is performed at a registered laboratory in accordance with the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of 1988 (CLIA) and 42 CFR part 493.
Depending upon the area being treated, the procedure can be completed in a single office visit. Our doctors will be able to provide details specific to your treatment plan.
Your age can play a factor in the outcome of your treatment. Your physician will be able to provide you with more specific information in regard to your treatment outcomes.
The use of our products does not require any invasive procedures, resulting in less pain and a shorter procedure time.
Depending upon the severity of the injury and your personal health, recovery time can vary. Your physician will be able to provide you with more information regarding your recovery timeline.
Our products are rigorously tested to FDA guidelines in our CLIA registered lab. Thousands of patients have used Predictive’s tissue allografts with no adverse effects.
Predictive's human cell and tissue products are not recommended for use in patients who are currently undergoing treatments for cancer. We recommend that patients who are specifically interested in umbilical chord cell products be cancer free for a minimum of 5 years.
