Stem Cell Treatment Program

Indiana Polyclinic is now offering cutting edge Stem Cell Treatments to patients right here in central Indiana. For those who do not know, stem cells have been used to treat patients around the world for over twenty years. However, for much of this time, stem cells have been controversial, primarily because of the use of embryonic stem cells in early trials. Science and medicine have long since moved away from this practice. Stem cells (and matrix) are FDA approved for use in humans, but the specific treatments have not been FDA approved. As such, these treatments are not covered by any insurance plans and are expensive. Patients should discuss these treatments with their doctors and have traditional treatments before proceeding.

  • What are Stem Cells?

    Adobe PDF Reader icon

    Stem cells are special cells that can transform into many different cell types.
    In many areas of the body stem cells act as a repair system and can divide and produce more stem cells over and over again.
    When a stem cell divides it can remain a stem cell or become another type of cell, like a heart cell, a nerve cell, or a cell from the skin, or the lungs, etc.
    In children, stem cells are available in large supply, ready to provide repair.
    As we age, our supply of stem cells begins to diminish.

    Stem cells have been used to treat patients around the world for over twenty years. For much of this time the use of stem cell has been controversial, primarily because of the use of embryonic stem cells in early trials. Presently stem cells can be collected from many sources including adult fat tissue, adult bone marrow and adult peripheral blood. However, these cells are less active and harvesting is complicated. The most effective and commonly used stem cells come from the umbilical cord blood (and placenta) of healthy newborns.

  • Stem Cell Matrix Treatment

    The matrix is primarily made up of the growth-promoting, immuno-regulating and anti-inflammatory factors produced by stem cells from the umbilical cords of healthy newborns. Like with live stem cells, this treatment is not FDA approved and is experimental. However, there has been extensive research demonstrating significant effect on the treatment of pain, inflammation, degenerative joint and tissue disease, as well as ligament, muscle, bursa treatment, and spinal disc repair. It appears that most soft tissues may respond favorably to this treatment.
