TEXT BY DR. KRISTOPHER “SEAN” GODDARD
What are stem cells? They
are the origin for all organs and
tissues and have the unique ability
to replicate and become any kind of cells:
muscle, pancreatic, nerve, heart...virtually
anything! What can they do? Reduce
inflammation, fighting cellular
death, stop or even reverse the
aging process, and revert damaged tissue,
joints, ligaments and tendons to their
healthy original state.
How are they obtained? By
extraction from your bone marrow
or adipose tissue, or by obtaining
stem cells from another individual through
an FDA-approved process.
How is the procedure
performed? Either through a
minimal in-office procedure or the
cells come ready to use through an FDA-
How are they injected for
injury? The cells are directly
injected to ligaments, tendons
or joints to create the most powerful
healing response and regeneration of tissue
possible. How are they injected for

10. When will I see results? This varies
on the severity of injury or disease. With
pain and musculoskeletal injuries, typical
improvements are noted in the first 2 weeks.
How many treatments will I
need? This varies depending on the
severity of injury.
Is the treatment long-lasting?
Stem cells regenerate tissue. As long
as the injury is not too severe, this
treatment will last until the next injury.
Am I a candidate? No
procedure is for everyone. A
consultation must be done to see
if the treatment is right for you.
