Congratulations on Scheduling your regenerative procedure with R3 Stem Cell International, your trusted provider of first rate safe and effective stem cell and exosome therapies!
The week prior to the procedure:
Your patient concierge representatives will be in touch with you to answer any final questions you may have. Your doctor will be available to answer questions as well and you will be sent pre-procedure instructions describing which medications to stop taking prior to the procedure.
This usually includes stopping anti-inflammatories, blood thinners, H2 blockers and possibly others. But your doctor will confirm, as patients are not all the same!
Avoid alcoholic beverages and smoking for AT LEAST one week prior to your procedure. If you fall ill the week prior to your procedure, please let us know.
FYI – if you would like to change the amount of biologic to be received, such as increase from 30 million stem cells to 50 million, we need to know several days before hand. The lab may need a few days to prepare your cells!
Bring comfortable clothes with you for the procedure. If you think of any last minute questions, make sure to write them down so you don’t forget to ask the doctor.
It will be fine to have accompanying friends/family with you during the procedure. There are certain types of procedures though where the doctor may ask those individuals to stay in the waiting area due to space limitations or sterility measures.
The regenerative procedures offered at R3 Stem Cell International take between 45 minutes to 3 hours per session. After completion, you will be monitored for at least thirty minutes to ensure stability.
Most commonly, if a patient has side effects they are mild and temporary. These may include chills, dizziness/lightheadedness, low grade fever, nausea. Most resolve within 24 hours or less.
