What Are Stem Cells and How Do They Work?
Adult stem cells are undifferentiated cells used as the body’s basic building blocks. These super cells – found throughout the entire body – have the unique ability to:
- limitlessly replicate themselves,
- to turn into a variety of cell types such as cartilage, bone, muscle, blood vessels, and others, and,
- to aid growth and repair of other body tissues. Older cells in our bodies get replaced with new cells over time. Stem cells are responsible for a lifetime of cellular repair and regeneration.
What Conditions Do You Treat with Stem Cells?
Stem cells are being studied worldwide for their effectiveness in treating an ever increasing variety of medical conditions including the following:
- Crohn’s Disease/Ulcerative Colitis
- Type II Diabetes
- Erectile Dysfunction
- Epstein Barr
- Aging/ Frailty Syndrome
- Heart Disease/Stroke
- Macular Degeneration
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Orthopedic Conditions
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Peripheral Vascular Disease
- Rheumatoid Arthritis/Autoimmune Disease
What is the Stem Cell Procedure?
It is a minimally invasive OUTPATIENT procedure in which the patient’s own stem cells are harvested from fat (in a process similar to liposuction) and delivered back into the patient’s body that very same day. Optimal Health medical’s process does not involve the freezing or culturing of cells, thus ensuring safety and the avoidance of infection.
Where Does the Procedure Take Place?
The outpatient procedure is minimally invasive and safely performed right in the Optimal Health Medical’s Stamford Office.
What Type of Cells Do You Use?
Optimal Health Medical utilizes only adult stem cells that are harvested from the patient’s own fat cells (adipose tissue) in order to avoid any potential rejection that could occur with outside donors. We never use embryonic stem cells as the technology we employ has no relation to that controversial procedure.
What Types of Patients Do You Treat?
Stem cell technology strives to reach patients before their condition advances to a critically ill stage. If you or a loved one is seeking help with conditions for which current treatments are ineffective, or wish to have a non-invasive alternative to surgery and/or drug treatments, with their risks and side effects, then consider stem cell technology. Dr. Sobo remains committed to whole patient care utilizing the latest medical research. Optimal Health Medical is now one of hundreds of worldwide centers involved in stem cell therapy research. Your participation helps look toward the future of medicine.

Does Insurance Cover the Cost?
As insurance will not cover investigational therapies, costs for this technology are the responsibility of the patient.
Are there any moral Issues associated with this Procedure?
Not really. Since Optimal Health Medical utilizes only adult stem cells that are harvested from the patient’s own fat (adipose tissue) — never embryonic stem cells – our technology we employ has no relation to that controversial procedure.
