FAQ About Bioscience High Performance
Bioscience Americas ...Solutions for a Healthier World.
Expertise and Proven Data Matter.
Be cautious and careful when choosing where to get stem cell therapy.
Stem cell therapy is an exciting new treatment and our research scientists are continuously discovering new benefits, on a regular basis, by using stem cell treatment. We believe one of our competitive advantages is our ongoing world class scientific research. Unfortunately, some clinics are making claims of healing, which scientifically, they may not be able to support. It’s important to be as informed as possible when you make your decision. Know how to ask the right questions to ensure you get the treatment – and the results – you’re looking for. Always make the best decision for your health and don’t be afraid to ask tough questions.
Why Choose Stem Cell Therapy?
Regenerative medicine or stem cell therapy offers an excellent option for treating orthopedic ailments. Stem cell therapy performed by our team of doctors is an innovative way to use your body’s own stem cells to treat chronic painful orthopedic problems (knees, hips, shoulders, feet/ankles) or spinal disc injuries and conditions that have not improved following conservative, non-surgical treatments. Many of our patients visit us after exhausting all other options including invasive surgery.

Am I a Good Candidate for Stem Cell Therapy?
To determine if you are a good candidate for stem cell therapy we review your history, perform a physical examination and determine whether X-rays or MRI’s are needed. If you are a good candidate for the procedure, a member of our team will explain how stem cell therapy works and what will happen throughout the procedure, and answer any other questions you may have.
What Is the High Performance Procedure?
In the procedure, the physician will aspirate bone marrow from the iliac crest of your pelvis, concentrate it, then deliver it back into your body intravenously. In all, the process takes less than 45 minutes.
Because your procedure will utilize a concentrated preparation of your own cells, it is considered “autologous point-of-care.” The procedure is fast, and in most cases can be completed with moderate sedation.
You will be given IV anesthesia or sedation, similar to what you would receive for a colonoscopy. Even though you may be awake and talking during the stem cell therapy procedure, you should have very little, if any, recollection of the procedure itself.
An experienced spine surgeon, orthopedic surgeon, or trained physician will remove some of your bone marrow. This process is brief and our team will ensure that you are comfortable throughout the procedure.
The bone marrow will be placed into a device that will separate the stem cells from the bone marrow.
The stem cells will then be injected back into your body in the area of damage or injury to aid in natural healing.
The entire procedure will take about 45 minutes.
What Can I Expect After the Procedure?
After a brief period of recovery from the anesthesia, you can go home, returning to your pre-procedure activity levels. A personal plan will be devised for your after-care and may include recommendations for physical therapy, chiropractic care, massage therapy or acupuncture to encourage the growth of your stem cells throughout your recovery process.
How Do My Own Stem Cells Heal?
A stem cell procedure harnesses and amplifies the body’s natural mechanism for healing (and anti-inflammation). This mechanism uses adult autologous stem cells (mesenchymal) stem cells derived from your own bone marrow. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have been shown to be anti-inflammatory, which helps in healing, and they also have antimicrobial properties. MSCs have immune regulatory properties, which may stop the immune system from attacking the myelin sheath.
YOUR OWN STEM CELLS MAY BE ABLE TO REDUCE THE SYMPTOMS OF MANY CONDITIONS.
The Global Institute of Stem Cell Therapy and Research has some of the most extensive research and data regarding all realms of regenerative medicine. We have developed and compiled data for nearly two decades. Our team of fellowship-trained doctors and scientists have treated thousands of patients with various stem cell procedures.
What Should I Expect?
Every individual is different. Two key determinants for success are severity of your condition and your body’s response to stem cell therapy. At Bioscience High Performance, we consult with patients from around the world to determine whether they are candidates for stem cell therapy and/or platelet-rich plasma.
When Can I Resume Physical Activity?
The most important part of any stem cell therapy is adhering to your post-procedure restrictions, which will be covered before your procedure. For the procedure to have the best chance to yield lasting benefit, our physicians strongly recommend:
Refrain from anti-inflammatory medication
Rest for the first 24–48 hours, but do not lie sedentary
For weeks 3–4, cardio is allowed
After four weeks, weight lifting and running are permitted.
We strive for transparency and full disclosure, and it is our compassionate intention to help those for whom conventional medical and surgical options have failed. We also want to inform you fully of the nature of our offerings. While we are very hopeful about the clinical future of stem cells, the use of stem cells is not FDA approved for the treatment of any specific condition, and they may be considered investigational. However, we do believe in the healing power of stem cells and offer them to you through clinical innovation alongside a growing segment of the medical community.
Can I be considered for a clinical trial?
To help enhance our collective understanding of the risks and benefits of stem cell therapies, we have begun to enroll in Institutional Review Board (IRB)-supported clinical trials to help investigate the clinical effects of stem cell therapies. Hence, you may be asked if you wish to participate in one of our clinical trials.
We also believe that stem cell technology will continue to evolve. Many prominent international centers have been using stem cell therapy to treat various chronic degenerative conditions. We’re dedicated to providing exceptional service to every person who walks through the door.
Who We Are.
