Stem Cell Therapy Q&A

What are stem cells?

Stem cells serve as your body’s raw material and have the ability to transform into any type of cell your body needs to regenerate or repair, including new blood vessels, nerve endings, or bone. Researchers are just beginning to tap into the power stem cells have to offer in health and healing. These cells may have the ability to regenerate organs for transplantation and perhaps even cure chronic conditions, such as Type 1 diabetes.

There are different types of stem cells, including:

Embryonic stem cells

Embryonic stem cells are only found in 3-5-day-old embryos. These cells are called pluripotent cells because they have the ability to form into any type of cell the body needs and create more stem cells.

Adult stem cells

Your body has adult stem cells, which are found in your bone marrow and fat tissue. Researchers are still discovering the potential uses of adult stem cells, but it’s theorized that these stem cells have limited ability to transform into any type of cell you need. However, scientists are working on modifying adult stem cells to increase their potential use for health and healing.

Perinatal stem cells

Perinatal stem cells are found in amniotic fluid and placental tissue. These types of stem cells have the ability to form into specialized cells.

Dr. Poliakoff is a researcher and is always looking for the most effective treatment for solving your gynecologic issue, and he uses stem cells as a treatment option.

What is stem cell therapy?

Stem cell therapy is a form of regenerative medicine aimed at accelerating your body’s natural healing processes. During treatment, stem cells are injected directly into the diseased or damaged tissue, and then they transform themselves into the type of cell your body needs.

What conditions benefit from stem cell therapy?

Dr. Poliakoff and his team take an integrative, full-spectrum approach to the management of your gynecologic needs. Stem cell therapy serves as one treatment option he may suggest to help restore your gynecologic or urogynecologic health.

Currently, stem cell therapy has been used to treat:

  • Stress urinary incontinence
  • Pelvic floor prolapse
  • Regeneration of bladder, vaginal, and uterine tissue

Stem cell therapy is an innovative treatment that has many potential uses. To learn more about stem cell therapy in gynecology, call Dr. Poliakoff’s office today or request an appointment online.
