Stem Cell Therapy for Crohn’s Disease (CD)

What is Crohn’s Disease?

Crohn’s disease is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease of the digestive tract. The condition typically affects the lining of the small intestine, but cause inflammation in any part of the digestive tract. Crohn’s disease causes abdominal pain and cramping, diarrhea, bloating, nausea, and vomiting. Other symptoms of the condition include anemia, joint pain, fatigue, and weight loss. Crohn’s disease can seriously impact sufferer’s lives and limit their ability to work, go to school, or participate in activities. Crohn’s patients are treated with anti-inflammatory medications, steroids, and other drugs, and some patients need to have surgery to remove damaged sections of the bowels.

How Does Stem Cell Therapy Treat Crohn’s Disease?

For patients with Crohn’s disease, Innovations Stem Cell Center deploys SVF stem cells through IV along with injections. Damaged tissue attracts stem cells through growth factor chemical messages, and deployed stem cells to find the damaged or diseased tissue and begin repairs.

Cost of Stem Cell Treatments

The cost of the initial treatment ranges from $5,000 to $10,000. The range in cost is dependent on the complexity of delivering the cells back to you. For example, spine conditions require multiple physicians to deliver the cells back to your body and this requires an increase in cost as multiple doctors are involved in the procedure. For many people the initial treatment is all that is needed; however, for some conditions, subsequent treatments may be required and these are done at a reduced fee.

Patients begin seeing results in the first few weeks of treatment. Some patients may require additional deployment.
