Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently Asked Questions
Does the Stem Cell treatment have any age requirements?
No, Stem Cell Of America accepts patients of all ages.
How much does the treatment cost?
There are multiple factors in determining the cost of treatment. Please contact us to have your case evaluated.
Does health insurance cover any portion of the treatment cost?
No, the treatment is not covered by private or public health insurance.
Do you accept patients from outside of the United States?
Yes, we routinely accept patients from Canada, England, Australia and other countries all over the world.
Is the Stem Cell treatment administered by Stem Cell Of America safe?
Yes, the cells are tested for 14 different criteria, including viral, bacterial, and fungal infections, as well as viability. Moreover, we use PCR DNA testing, which is far more sophisticated and expensive than the screening tests routinely used in the United States for other Stem Cell treatments.
Will my body reject the Fetal Stem Cells?
No, Fetal Stem Cellsare “immune privileged”. This means that you can give the cells to any patient without matching, use of immunosuppressive drugs and without rejection. Therefore they will not cause adverse reactions in the patient, such as graft-versus-host disease. Because of this special property of the cells there is no risk of rejection or adverse reaction, which can leave the body vulnerable to serious diseases and infection.
Does your Stem Cell Treatment have any side effects?

How quickly will I see results after the Stem Cell treatment?
Every person is of course different. Each of our body’s healing mechanisms work at a unique pace as they are influenced by many factors. Commonly, significant positive changes are seen between three to six months post treatment. At times, these changes can occur in as little as weeks or even days after receiving treatment.
How many Stem Cell treatments will I need?
After the first treatment, the Fetal Stem Cells will continue to proliferate and repair. Some patients choose to receive treatment more than one time to expedite the healing process. The decision is yours. If you decide to repeat the treatment, usually a waiting period of 6 months is recommended.
How do the Fetal Stem Cells actually work to bring about healing?
Fetal Stem Cells are the cellular building blocks of the 220 cell types within the body. The Fetal Stem Cells used by Stem Cell Of America remain in an undifferentiated state and therefore are capable of becoming any tissue, organ or cell type within the body.
Fetal Stem Cells also release Cytokines. Cytokines are cell-derived, hormone-like polypeptides that regulate cellular replication, differentiation, and activation. Cytokines can bring normal cells and tissues to a higher level of function, allowing the body’s own healing mechanisms to partner with the transplanted Fetal Stem Cells for repair and new growth.
How many people have been treated with my specific disease or condition?
Since 1995, Stem Cell Of America has arranged for the treatment of over seven thousand patients with Fetal Stem Cells. The number of patients continues to grow. Please contact us to get specific information on a disease or condition.
