What is Stem Cell Therapy?

Stem cells therapy is an exciting emerging branch of regenerative medicine that will greatly impact the future of medicine and change how we treat various diseases.

Stem Cells are the building blocks for every organ and tissue in our body. Stem cells have the ability to either self-replicate or become the building blocks for other organs, such as heart cells, blood cells, brain cells and joint cells such as joint cartilage. There is much excitement about stem cell therapy as we may be able to use stem cell therapy to repair diseased or damaged tissues and organs. This includes a wide array of diseases such as heart disease, paralysis, stroke, diabetes and osteoarthritis.

We will clarify this subject make this as simple as possibly by breaking Stem Cells into 3 groups which are classified by their origin.

Fetal Stem Cells
Fetal stem cells are derived from the human embryo. They are harvested during in-vitro fertilization. They are “pluripotent”, meaning that they could be differentiated into various type of cells and may potentially have the ability to repair various disease organs. This is still a developing field and there is currently much research, most of it outside of the United States, regarding its utility.
Perinatal Stem Cells
Perinatal Stem Cells are stem Cells that are derived right before or right after birth. These are cells that are derived from amniotic fluid, the umbilical cord or the placenta. These cells can also be differentiated to various cells. There is are still ongoing research in the field to further see the utility of these cells.
Adult Stem Cells
Adult stems cells come from 3 sources. They are mainly contained in bone marrow, adipose tissue (fat cells) and blood. They are called mesenchymal Stems cells. Although they have a more limited ability to differentiate to various types of cells, there has been increase research showing that their differentiation ability is more than once thought. This is an exciting growing field as Autologous, or use of a person’s own stem cells does not face the ethical or safety issues when compared to using donor fetal stem cells. These treatments included BMAC and ADSC Therapy.

Dr. Reza is a genius. My knee has been bothering me for YEARS since I tore my meniscus playing football. Achy, bothersome, with occasionally a limp. I went into to get PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) and it was everything I thought it would be and then some. The whole procedure took less than an hour, very little to no pain and in less than 24 hours my knee felt brand new. If you are looking for a quality Doctor who offers PRP -- go here! The rates are very on point. He is literally THOUSANDS of dollars less than some other clinics and believe me he does such an amazing job, he could charge 10x's and it would still be worth it. Don't sit there suffering, get up and get help. I am actually thinking of getting my other knee done and its not really necessary. Lol.. 10 STARS...

Dr Reza is FANTASTIC. Staff is friendly and very accommodating. I was in such pain. He diagnosed the issue (Bursitis) and clearly understood everything about it from A-Z. So efficient and understanding, not to mention making the procedure painless. I barely slept a hour the night before, saw Dr. Reza at 5pm and was feeling a million times better by 7pm. It's been 36 hours and I went from practically a frozen shoulder in pulsating pain to gaining back 70% of my movement range and most importantly "NO PAIN". just stiffness which is the normal symptoms as kindly explained to me by Dr. Reza. Everything is as promised, I am fully confident that I will be back to 100% range of motion within 3 days. I'm still gonna take it easy and slowly stretch my shoulder back to full strength. Without his service, I would probably be feeling like I was hit by a truck laying in bed miserable. Thank you very much Dr. Reza for helping my aging old bones. Cheers!

I can’t say enough about how intelligent Dr. Reza Dehdari is! I came to him to read my MRI for my ankle and he found a tear that multiple Doctors missed!!!! Simply incredible and I trust him throughly. Thank you so much!

Had the PRP procedure and I have to say no pain at all, going on 6 weeks, if you decide to have the PRP listen to Dr. Dehdari's instructions thoroughly and do the physical therapy, it works and I am so pleased and it's getting better and better as days go on, Dr. Reza Dehdari is the best and very emphatic in explaining all your questions soothing away your doubts, and he checks up on you to make sure all is well, after the PRP procedure. Very trustworthy PRP procedure and his assistant Sandy is also the sweetest caring person you will ever meet. I'm a satisfied customer and patient.

My son went to see Dr. Reza for a shoulder injury he received from repeated use due to training. My son had tried physical therapy and a cortisone shot with little success. Dr. Reza thoroughly explained the benefits of PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) and he felt confident he could help my son. The procedure itself is amazing and my son was comfortable the entire time. I LOVE the fact that my son's own body was healing itself without the use of drugs. His shoulder is so much better and he was able to resume training after two weeks. I would highly recommend the PRP shot with Dr. Reza and will definitely see him again if the need arose.

Within the last 6 months I've suffered two minor injuries on the same knee which have restricted my mobility and caused me a lot of pain. I've seen an orthopedic dr.,, a pain management dr., and a sports medicine dr., all of which simply told me either surgery or learn to live with the pain! I've heard about PRP as an alternative with a high percentage of success. Thus, I made an appointment to see Dr. Dehdari, and was pleasantly surprised by his high level of knowledge, professionalism and thoroughness. Dr. Dehdari reviewed my MRI (previously ordered by the Orthopedist) explained the extent of my injuries, took X-Rays and an ultrasound to carefully determined if I was a good candidate for PRP. I can only say that I wish more doctors will give you the time, attention and care that Dr. Dehdari provides. Thank you Dr Dehdari, thank you for such high work ethics and patient care. Many thanks to his staff as they are as attentive and caring as Dr. Dehdari. It has been only 24 hrs since I received my PRP treatment and my pain levels have drastically gone down! I highly recommend Dr. Dehdari.
