Types of stem cells

What are stem cells?

Because millions of cells in our bodies die and become damaged each day, they need to be constantly replaced, which is how injuries heal and how we recover from diseases.

All cells — regardless of function — are created from one special type of cell — a stem cell. Through a process called differentiation, when a stem cell divides into two cells, the “daughter” cell can be another stem cell or any other type of new cell.

For patients with deterioration in the discs between the bones of the spine, these new cells can become cartilage cells to regenerate disc tissue. Normally the body has enough stem cells to support this growth, but for various reasons there may not be enough stem cells available to replace disc tissue to heal bulging or herniated discs and other disorders.

What are stem cells

How stem cells differentiate into specific types of cells

Stem cells work as part of the body’s natural “repair team’ to replace the many different types of cells in the various structures, organs, and tissues in our bodies. Each type of cell looks very different and performs a different biological function. For example:

How stem cells differentiate

Can I expect any pain from my procedure?

Stem cells may be infused in an intravenous (IV) drip or through an intrathecal infusion that’s similar to an epidural injection. Some patients may notice minor pain common to a needle injection, while others report no pain at all.

Are stem cells safe?

Yes. Not only does research show that stem cell therapy offers a high level of safety and presents little risk of any side effects, BioXcellerator takes great care to review each patient’s medical history before treatment. If any issues raise concerns about safety, we’ll help address those issues before treatment.

Have you treated other military veterans and professional athletes?

Yes. We’ve treated many professional athletes — including NFL and NBA players, UFC fighters and veterans. Our experience and treatment protocols include therapies for a wide range of sports and orthopedic injuries, spine and disc degeneration — as well as TBI, CTE and PTSD.

There are many other types of cells, but they all share one common characteristic:

Each cell contains our
entire DNA, which means all of our cells actually contain instructions for making any type of cell.

That’s because all cells — regardless of function — are created from stem cells that have the potential to differentiate into specific cells in various organs and to fight disease.

For example:

  • If you burn your skin, your body turns stem cells into new skin cells

  • If you’re fighting an infection, your body turns stem cells into new immune cells

  • And if the tissue in the discs of your spine deteriorates, your body turns stem cells into new cartilage cells for these discs.

Stem cells are usually produced in the bone marrow. As we age, however, this process can slow down. That’s why as we age, we don’t produce as many new skin cells, resulting in wrinkles. Or we may not produce as many new immune cells, which is why older people are more likely to develop specific diseases.

But with an infusion of new high-potency stem cells, your body can use those cells to heal injuries, regenerate damaged tissue, and even enhance immunity and reduce inflammation throughout the body. Indeed, the latest scientific research shows that stem cells can not only treat specific conditions, but also rejuvenate cells to extend our potential to live longer and enhance overall wellness as we grow older.


Are BioXcellerator procedures covered by insurance?

Typically, no. If your insurance company does not cover stem cell therapy, we do offer financing options for our treatments.

Do you track results on patient outcomes and treatment success rates?

Yes, and we regularly publish these results. See our Patient Testimonials page.

Treatment Results: Mark May Treated for CTE, chronic pain, neck, back, and shoulder injuries and health optimization

Treatment Results: Kevin Nash Treated for shoulder, herniated disc (degenerative disc disease), chronic pain, health optimization and CTE

Treatment Results: Chuck Liddell Treated for CTE, chronic pain, back, knee and shoulder injuries and degeneration and health optimization

Treatment Results: The Stewarts was in a car accident that has created chronic pain and halted most of her daily lifestyle routines

Treatment Results: Jim McMahon Treated for CTE, chronic pain, back, knee and shoulder injuries and degeneration and health optimization

Why are BioXcellerator treatments not available in the U.S.?

Although the type of stem cells BioXcellerator uses — mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) — can be used at U.S. clinics, current FDA regulations do not allow these cells to be reproduced into high-potency formulations. So, while the same type of stem cells may be available in the U.S., patients receive far fewer stem cells, which can reduce the overall effectiveness of treatment.

Types of stem cells: 

Stem cell therapy requires that these cells be reproduced into infusions of millions of cells. There are several different sources for stem cells that can be used for treatment. Some of these include;


Adult or somatic stem cells: Extracted from the adipose (fatty) tissue or bone marrow from a patient or another donor, these stem cells can be used for treatment. But because these cells are older, they usually do not differentiate as well into specific types of cells to offer the best healing potential or help ease chronic inflammation.


Embryonic stem cells: Although stem cells from embryos are very young and have a high degree of potential to differentiate in a way that promotes healing and ease inflammation, ethical issues surrounding the use of embryos for medical procedures means using these cells is prohibited in most countries.

Reprogrammed IPs cells: In some cases, adult stem cells can be modified to give them the same high potency as embryonic cells. Although this approach avoids the ethical conflicts of using actual embryos, genetically modifying cells like these make them too unstable to use for treatment.


Perinatal cells: These cells come from tissue that’s usually discarded after birth, including the placenta, amniotic fluids, and umbilical cords. These cells are young and can be highly potent to promote healing and control inflammation, but because they are the “byproduct” of an actual birth, do not create any ethical concerns.

At BioXcellerator, we use a special type of perinatal cell that comes from the Wharton’s Jelly inside umbilical cords that are donated for treatment purposes. That’s because research shows these stem cells — mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) — can be reproduced into high-potency infusions that offer the best possible treatment outcomes based on specific characteristics of these cells – including high anti-inflammatory properties and potential to stimulate healing.


Mesenchymal stem cells:
Special perinatal cells with high healing potential 

Based on research by Dr. Arthur Caplan and other noted scientists, a type of stem cell – mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) – offer exceptional healing potential and are ethically sourced. That’s because they come from the Wharton’s Jelly that’s found in umbilical cords. These MSCs have unique attributes that include:

A capacity to divide many times, yet remain undifferentiated so the body can use them to create any type of cell

Natural synthesis and secretion of growth factors that stimulate or activate a patient's own cells in a way that promotes expansion and proliferation

An ability to migrate to tissues that require healing through inflammatory signals 

Immunomodulation and anti-inflammatory properties to better regulate the immune system and reduce harmful inflammation throughout the body

Signaling characteristics based on cytokines, chemokines, and trophic factors to stimulate differentiation, mobilization, and proliferation

How BioXcellerator produces Stem Cells 

The science of stem cell harvesting and reproduction

The science behind selecting the right type of stem cells that can help heal disc tissues – and other organs and structures in the body – demonstrates exceptional treatment potential. Although MSCs offer properties with high healing potential, our scientists continue to pioneer innovations in ways these cells are harvested, selected, refined, and the purified before they are infused into patients.

At BioXcellerator, we’ve developed a proprietary protocol for formulating customized infusions of the stem cells with the highest possible potency and quantity of cells based on the following process:


Strict donor selection: Although stem cells are harvested from donated umbilical cords, we carefully screen donors based on strict criteria to use cells that come from only the healthiest donors who show no signs of serious disease.


Stem cell screening: Stem cells extracted from Wharton’s Jelly in umbilical cords from healthy donors are then screened for specific proteins and other characteristics that our research shows are markers that indicate the highest possible potency.


Purification and reproduction: Stem cells that pass this screening are purified and then reproduced into infusions that contain millions of high-potency stem cells – called Golden Cells – which are transfused into patients via IV or intramuscular, intraarticular, intradiscal, or intrathecal injection.

After an infusion of high potency stem cells, the body uses those cells to regenerate disc tissue so they become rehydrated and return to normal shape.

In this video, Dr. Santiago Saldarriaga shows before and after MRI images of BioXcellerator patient Jim Stewart after an infusion of stem cells, pointing out the regenerated and rehydrated disc tissue and improvement in shape. 

Ongoing research and innovation

The science of stem cell therapy and regenerative medicine continues to offer more patients than ever highly effective treatments to heal damage from spine and disc disorders, treat many other diseases, heal from a wide variety of injuries, and enhance overall immunity and performance.
