Special Announcement - Now Screening for FDA Approved Stem Cell Study
Dr. Mitchell Sheinkop has completed training and is credentialed for an FDA-approved stem cell clinical trial for knee arthritis. Our clinic is now screening patients for this trial. Contact us at 312-475-1893 for details. Click here to learn more.

The cellular, biologic, therapeutic approach using your stem cells may be directed either directly or via the Extracellular Vesicles produced by those stem cells acting via microRNAs. Bone Marrow contains Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) in addition to Platelets and precursor cells as well as over 300 growth factors, cytokines, chemokines, and 102 unique microRNAs. In addition, there are other exosomes/nanoparticles yet to be identified.

The same is the case with adipose-derived Stem Cells (Stromal Vascular Fraction or SVF). The microRNA is part of the explanation for the therapeutic effect. Exosomes are messengers that carry proteins and nucleic acids that bind like a lock and key to the cell’s RNA, directing its behavior. The net result is less pain, better motion, and improved function with a needle and not a knife.

OK, it is time to see how all of this translates into the clinical setting. Let’s use an example, namely, me. Next Thursday, I travel with my wife, daughter, two sons, and five grandchildren to Vail, Colorado for a week+ of skiing. This will be my 62nd year of skiing; and although I have stopped the helicopter ultimate skiing challenges, in spite of my two arthritic hips and two arthritic knees, here I go again. While our Epic Passes were purchased some months ago and my outer apparel hasn’t changed for some years (I assure you the under ware has been washed since last year) I rent demo skis to get the most out of every run and my eight days of skiing.

Over the past four years, I have allowed myself the luxury of treatment with the same injectable biologics that I offer my patients. For the last three months in anticipation of the ski trip, six days of fitness straining a week has been dedicated to High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) on a rowing ergometer alternating with long-distance cycling on an indoor exercise bike. Make no mistake though, it is the use of the cellular biologic approach that allows me to keep going.

When I return, I will review the week that was and support my claims with visuals. In the meantime, whether you want to ski, run, play golf or tennis, bike or fly fish, call my office and schedule a consultation to learn how biologics and cellular medicine can return you to an active lifestyle or keep you going.
