Stem cells: The Future of Medicine is happening now

Stem cells: The Future of Medicine is happening now

This incredible therapy is an opportunity to heal and avoid invasive medical procedures/surgery! We are proud to have the top Westchester stem cell doctor, Dr. Joon Lee, helping patients to regenerate using stem cells and their body’s own ability to heal. Scarsdale Integrative Medicine is a Westchester stem cell therapy clinic specializing in regenerative medicine. 

What is regenerative medicine? It is a cellular level therapy that aims to improve the function of damaged or diseased tissue or organs by introducing cells to replace damaged cells. Dr. Joon Lee, an experienced Westchester stem cell doctor, uses regenerative medicine to treat medical conditions across a range of specialties including orthopedics, rheumatology, cardiology, neurology, and immunology. 

Stem cells occur naturally in the body and transform into a variety of cells. When injected into a damaged tissue, stem cells specialize to carry out the function in the area, improving symptoms and function of the tissue. 

The specific type of treatment Dr. Joon Lee uses in our Westchester stem cell clinic is a type that does 4 things. 

1. Migration - the stem cell can be injected into the bloodstream and move on their own to the affected area

2. Repair - in the case of tissue damage has the ability to regenerate the tissue 

3. Immunomodulation - they do not elicit a reaction from the patients immune system T-cells making them safe to use

4. Reduction of Inflammation – they reduce TNF-aplha and TNF-gamma, signal cells that promote inflammation, essential in chronic and autoimmune diseases 

The most common question we get from our patients that are considering Westchester stem cell treatment is - where do the stem cells come from? 

Since stem cells are found throughout the body, we do have an option to use your own stem cells that are derived from your own blood however the more effective treatment is using stem cells from umbilical cords. The umbilical cord is cut upon delivery, is non invasive and ethically sound as well as playing a big role in regenerative medicine. 

Dr. Joon Lee offers consults for Westchester stem cell therapy to discuss what options are best for you and answer all of your questions. There is also a monthly seminar at our office for a thorough explanation of the procedure as well as an opportunity to learn about statistics, evidence-based research and address any concerns. Patients that have had the procedure done are often there as a support to answer any questions.
