What is tissue supplementation?
Tissue supplementation uses growth factors derived from healthy donor umbilical cord to support your body’s natural healing process. In a laboratory setting, stem cells can transform into any other type of cell, including blood cells, muscle cells, or skin cells.
This unique ability makes them ideal for tissue supplementation procedures involving musculoskeletal injuries caused by sports, work, illness, or general wear-and-tear. When a solution of highly concentrated stem cells enters a damaged or ailing joint, it promotes blood flow to the area, encouraging the production of new, healthy cells and tissue.
Where do Wharton’s jelly allografts come from?
At Restore Osteo of Colorado, the team uses a structural tissue matrix derived from the umbilical cord to ensure the best possible results. These stem cells are of the highest quality and don’t come from any other source. The harvesting process is entirely safe and has no negative effects on the infant or mother.
The team houses the umbilical cord tissue in several onsite freezing units. That ensures the tissue matrix maintains its integrity until the procedure.

You might also benefit from regenerative stem cell therapy following surgery. A series of injections can speed up your recovery process, limiting swelling and inflammation.
Am I a good candidate for regenerative stem cell therapy?
To determine if you’re a good candidate for regenerative stem cell therapy, your Restore Osteo of Colorado provider conducts a physical exam, asks you about your lifestyle and symptoms, and reviews your medical history.
During your exam, your provider gently presses on the affected joint, looking for redness, warmth, or swelling. Next, they observe your gait and posture and determine your range-of-motion with a series of simple exercises.
If you have a mild or moderate injury that won’t respond to rest or physical therapy, you’re probably a good candidate for treatment. The number of injections you need depends on the severity of your symptoms and their effect on your quality of life.
Is regenerative stem cell therapy safe?
Regenerative stem cell therapy is safe and well-tolerated. To ensure a speedy recovery, follow your provider’s instructions carefully.
