R3antiaging offers the following Regenerative Therapies

Where does the umbilical cord come from?

The umbilical cords that are used for regenerative procedures are obtained from consenting donors after a scheduled c-section.  A c-section birth is more “sterile” than a vaginal birth as it’s performed in a surgical setting. This reduces the risk of contamination.


In addition, the mothers are rigorously screened prior to birth. There is a large list of diseases that are tested for with a blood test. Mothers are also administered a medical questionnaire looking at risk factors such as smoking, tattoos, previous drug use, etc.


If a consenting mother is deemed satisfactory for donating, then a technician attends the procedure. The mother and baby are fine. Instead of discarding the umbilical cord, though, the technician places it in a sterile container, transports to the processing lab, and then the umbilical cord is processed right away.


The processing is performed in an FDA registered lab that abides by cGMP and AATB standards. The processing abides by the FDA’s minimal manipulation standards without any culturing or enzyme dissociation.

Why use an umbilical cord?

An umbilical cord provides nutrition and oxygen to the growing fetus. Amazingly, it contains an extremely high number of regenerative elements. These include extensive growth factors, cytokines, exosomes, hyaluronic acid, and stem cells.


As it turns out, researchers have discovered over the past few decades just how beneficial these factors are when using into other humans. Because the umbilical cord tissue is obtained from a donor, it is referred to as an allograft. If it was from the same person, it would be called an autograft. The umbilical cord allograft tissue has become a very popular material to use for achieving pain relief in patients.

Who is a candidate for an umbilical cord procedure?

R3 offers umbilical cord stem cell injections to patients who are suffering from all types of joint pain, such as knee, hip, shoulder, elbow, ankle, and also back and neck pain too. In addition, patients who have an overuse issue such as tennis or golfer’s elbow respond well to the injections. Plantar fasciitis is another ailment that receives tremendous relief with umbilical cord allograft.


The ultimate decision on what to receive umbilical cord stem cells for involves a  conversation between you and the treating doctor. If our doctor determines that your condition is amenable to an umbilical cord stem cell procedure, then the decision is between you and the provider.

What is the process for receiving therapy?

Our office will provide you with pre and post procedure detailed instructions regarding medications to avoid, activities to avoid, etc. You should definitely eat and drink in the hours prior to your procedure.


Most of the time, the umbilical cord allograft procedure involves an injection. Our providers use image guidance, with ultrasound, to ensure that the needle is accurately placed. Numbing medicine is applied to make the procedure very tolerable.


The umbilical cord stem cell injection procedure typically takes less than 45 minutes. Should the umbilical cord stem cells be delivered in a different manner, you will receive detailed instructions from your provider and the office customized to you.

Are there restrictions before and after the procedure?

There are some slight restrictions before and after receiving an umbilical cord stem cell procedure. These have been developed continuously over a decade of best practice protocols.


There are a few medications that will need to be stopped several days before, along with some herbs and supplements as well. These are to protect patients from potential bleeding issues and also to allow the regenerative elements to work optimally.
