Stem Cell FAQ

What can stem cells be used to treat?

Stem cells are being used in clinical practice and throughout research to regenerate most tissue or heal large sections of tissue damage throughout the body and central nervous system. At our clinic, we utilize bone marrow, fat mesenchymal tissue and/or umbilical cord blood to regenerate arthritic tissue in areas such as the spine, knees, hip region, pelvis, shoulders, hands and feet. Stem cells have been shown to incite tissue regeneration for cartilage, bone, tendon, muscle and ligaments. At Spectrum Health Stem Cell Center our physicians have been treating patients with stem cell transplants for longer than most clinics in Wisconsin.
