Frequently Asked Questions
What is stem cell therapy?
Stem Cell Therapy is the use of Stem Cells to treat chronic diseases or health conditions. The use of Bone Marrow derived stem cells has been around for 30+ years and originated with the treatment of leukemia and lymphoma. For several years now, physicians have been using Stem Cell Therapy to treat joint pain using bone marrow and cord tissue derived stem cells. At Wisconsin Stem Cell Therapy, we use Adult Bone Marrow Derived Stem Cell Therapy, Cord Tissue Stem Cell Therapy, and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy to help our patients find relief from their joint pain. Each patient is treated with a custom program specific to his or her health needs.
What types of stem cells do you use?
Wisconsin Stem Cell Therapy offers a variety of revolutionary breakthrough treatment options for people suffering from inflammation, reduced mobility, sports injuries, tissue and ligament damage, or chronic pain. The type of stem cell therapy recommended depends on the needs of the patient.
Wisconsin Stem Cell Therapy only uses treatments that have been scientifically proven to show effectiveness. We use the following stem cell treatments: Bone Marrow Stem Cell Therapy, Cord Tissue Stem Cell Therapy. We also offer Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy.
Who is on the team and who is performing the injections?
What guidance/imaging tools are used during the injections?
Wisconsin Stem Cell Therapy is equipped with advanced technology medical tools. During injections, we use a “C-arm” fluoroscopy and/or ultrasound imaging when necessary. Guidance is not always needed depending on individual’s condition and location of the injection.
What is Bone Marrow Derived Stem Cell Therapy?
Bone Marrow Derived Stem Cell Therapy is an autologous therapy which means that the stem cells used for your treatment will be harvested from your own body. This is an outpatient procedure that is usually done within a few hours. Your doctor will use a local anesthetic for this process. Once the stem cells have been collected an apheresis machine will filter and return the cells to the body to begin the healing process.
This minimally invasive procedure is completed in one day offering patients an effective treatment with a low impact on their normal life. Many patients return to normal activity within 3-7 days post procedure and experience minimal pain following the treatment
What is Cord Tissue Mesenchymal Stem Cell Therapy?
Cord tissue contains a unique type of stem cell that is called a mesenchymal stem cell (MSCs). Wisconsin Stem Cell Therapy uses tissue that is processed to preserve the structural integrity of Wharton’s Jelly for homologous use and cryogenically preserved.
What is the chance of rejection with Cord Tissue Stem Cell Therapy?
What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?

Is stem cell therapy safe?
Our Stem Cell Therapy is an extremely safe treatment option. We are committed to the highest standards of patient safety, and adheres to stringent FDA regulations.
Is more than one treatment needed?
Not every person is the same. Obviously that possibility exists and that’s why we take our patients through our advanced assessment so we can carefully determine if you are one of those special cases. It is important to understand that once a joint regenerates, there may be no need for further treatment unless a new injury occurred or over-time, that joint degenerated again. Many patients are experiencing major relief from our Stem Cell Therapy after only ONE treatment!
What determines the outcome of my stem cell therapy?
Various factors will determine the outcome of your Regenerative Cell Therapy treatment, such as the extent of damage, disease and the location being treated. Most people respond well to this therapy option and experience relief from pain in just a short period of time.
Is there anything else I can do to increase the effectiveness of my therapy?
How much downtime should I expect after stem cell therapy?
How long does the repair process take?
How often does the procedure work?
Can the procedure fail?
Like any other procedure there is no 100% guarantee. In certain cases, it is possible that you may need additional treatments or your stem cells do not have enough repair potential relative to the severity of your disease. This is why it is important to meet in our clinic on your individual situation so we can better predict your outcome.
If stem cell therapy does not work can I still have surgery?
Yes. There is nothing about these procedures that would preclude you from having traditional surgery. We evaluate each case carefully, however, so if it’s possible to tell that the best course of action is truly conventional surgery a meeting with our orthopedic surgeon will be recommended.
