How Is An IV Dose Determined?

Unlike some clinics, which base their dose on the patient’s weight, we only have one type of infusion. Our infusion contains 4.2cc of stem cells (approximately 40 million cells).

Is Stem Cell IV Therapy Safe?

There are different safety considerations for stem cells depending on their origin.

Stem cells from a patient’s own body (eg. bone marrow or adipose tissue) do not carry the risk of immune rejection. Stem cells from birth tissue may be rejected by the patient’s body and cause adverse reactions.

The purity of the stem cells used for IV stem cell therapy will reduce the chance of immune rejection. Our birth tissue-derived stem cells have undergone stringent testing and screening prior to accepting them for use to ensure both the effectiveness and safety of the procedure. Few patients report adverse effects following treatment.

Regardless of the source of the stem cells, there is a very small chance of infection from the procedure itself. That’s why our registered nurses are trained in administering IV treatments for your optimal safety and comfort.

What’s The Difference Between Exosomes And Stem Cells?

Exosomes and stem cells both promote healing throughout your body, but they are very different. Exosomes are vesicles that carry messages between cells in order to help your body function normally. Stem cells are undifferentiated cells that can become any type of cell in the body.

As a non-cellular therapy, exosome treatment can be valuable for individuals who do not want to receive cell-based therapy for personal reasons.
