The research into stem cell therapy often brings people to information about Wharton’s jelly. The jelly is found in the umbilical cord and contains stem cell genes which, once induced, can be extracted from the body and administered to a patient. As more and more information regarding stem cell therapy becomes available, doctors are interested in finding out the information provided that shows clinical trials and proof of the effectiveness of this treatment, including when it is derived directly from Wharton’s jelly. However, relying solely on online sources can be a mistake that doctors have made in the past and need to avoid moving forward.
Dr. Bart Rademaker explains that doctors, regardless of their area of practice, have had to provide additional services within their practice to address financial restrictions and challenges. Dentists are now offering Botox and maxillofacial surgeons are now offering laser therapy. Regenerative medicine is yet another example of a service doctor’s can offer to increase their number of patients. However, as Dr. Bart Rademaker points out, it must be done carefully and with only experienced medical professionals. Unlike laser therapy, Botox, certain medications and holistic healing, adding these services can have a major impact on the health of a patient.
There are so many factors that need to be taken into consideration and without an understanding of stem cell or Wharton’s jelly therapy, patients will be misinformed and have unrealistic expectations. A great example of this is with the coronavirus pandemic. Many patients are curious if regenerative medicine can assist in the treatment of this virus or act as a way to help the body fight it off so that the person does not experience any of the severe symptoms. Those questions can only be answered by an experienced doctor who has worked in this field for years and understands the real science behind it.
