Why Stem Cells Now:
Advances in Regenerative Medicine have allowed Dr. Sobo to offer his patients access to the cutting edge technology of Adult Stem Cell Therapy. Stem Cells have been the subject of research for their effectiveness for a variety of disorders. The conditions that stem cell therapy may be effective for include disorders for which there may not be, at present, any effective medical treatments such as Alzheimer’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis and many others.
Our office is now participating in research studies that are underway in the field of stem cell therapy. Therefore, we can offer our patients convenient access this advanced tech therapy here in Stamford, CT, in Optimal Health Medical’s caring and nurturing environment. The investigational therapies offered follow treatment protocols designed by a research IRB
(Institutional Review Board).
The main goal of this therapy is to augment the body’s natural repair system by increasing the amount of available stem cells that aid the body in their natural restorative process.
What Are Adult Stem Cells?
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: 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.

The Stem Cell Procedure
Optimal Health Medical utilizes only adult stem cells that are harvested from the patient’s own fat cells 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.
In a minimally invasive procedure, an individual’s stem cells are harvested from fat (in a process similar to liposuction) and delivered back into the patient’s body that very same day. Our process does not involve the freezing or culturing of cells, thus ensuring safety and the avoidance of infection.
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

Our Patient-Focused Mission >
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.
As insurance will not cover investigational therapies, costs for this technology are the responsibility of the patient.
