Wharton’s Jelly

THE LIFEBLOOD OF OUR BODIES

What Is Wharton's Jelly?

Wharton’s jelly is a gelatinous substance within the umbilical cord.  It contains cells called mesenchymal stem cells, which have the potential to develop into various types of cells, including bone, cartilage, and muscle cells. These stem cells have been studied for their potential therapeutic applications in regenerative medicine.

How does Wharton's Jelly therapy work?

Most applications include injecting these regenerative biologics into the affected area.  These powerful cells have the potential to awaken dormant stem cells within your body, kickstarting the repair process, providing an option to address injuries or cellular degenerative conditions.

WHERE DOES WHARTON’S JELLY COME FROM?

Wharton’s jelly originates from the mesenchymal cells within the umbilical cord during fetal development.

It is produced by specialized cells called mesenchymal cells. These cells differentiate into various tissues and structures, including the umbilical cord and its associated Wharton’s jelly. 

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF WHARTON’S JELLY?

Wharton’s Jelly from umbilical cord tissue has the richest source of regenerative properties.

It contains a unique blend of proteins, cytokines, growth factors, and hyaluronic acid, which are functional components involved in reconstructing, repairing, and protecting human tissue.

The cells extracted from these birthing tissues can be highly effective at restoring strength and flexibility in your tissues.

IS WHARTON'S JELLY THERAPY RIGHT FOR ME?

 

The cells sourced from Wharton’s Jelly may have the potential to promote healthy tissues and help reduce inflammation. They may be ideal for patients struggling with chronic conditions caused by cell or tissue degradation or traumatic injuries.

COMMON QUESTIONS

WHAT IS CELL-BASED REGENERATIVE THERAPY?

The term cell-based regeneration therapy has become interchangeable with Stem Cell Therapy, however we do not inject live nucleated cells into the joint space. We utilize Wharton’s jelly. Our Wharton’s Jelly product is a minimally manipulated flowable tissue transplant that has the highest concentrations of Stem Cells, Hyaluronic Acid, Collagen, Growth Factors and Anti-Inflammatory Cytokines.

Cell-based regeneration therapy is simply harnessing the bodies natural capacity to heal itself, super concentrating it and injecting it where we hurt in order to start or accelerate the healing process.

WHAT IS WHARTON’S JELLY?

Found in the Umbilical Cord Wharton’s Jelly (WJ) provides conditioning, support and lubrication for the Cord. That functional purpose in the Cord makes it a perfect product for treating damaged joints whether that damage is caused by arthritis, inflammation or injury.

The tissue transplant not only has all the healing and regenerative properties at the highest concentration but also provides relief as it gives the joint space more support, cushioning and lubrication.

WHY USE WHARTON’S JELLY?

Wharton’s Jelly has the highest concentration of Mysenchymal Stem Cells (Stem Cells), Growth Factors, Collagen, Hyaluronic Acid and Anti-Inflammatory cytokines. These work to most effectively turn off inflammation and promote regeneration of the tissue.

For the patient that simply means much less pain and much more function.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF WHARTON’S JELLY?

Wharton’s Jelly provides cushioning, support and lubrication in the joint space. It is the only biologic that has the structure for that. Wharton’s Jelly also has the highest concentration of stem cells which are critical for the regenerative process.

Wharton’s Jelly also has the highest concentration of Hyaluronic Acid which is important for joint health. Wharton’s Jelly also has the highest concentration of Growth Factors and Anti-inflammatory cytokines.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO SEE RESULTS?

Since each condition and patient is unique, there is no guarantee of how fast the results will be achieved. Most patients report reduced pain in four to six weeks. We have follow up consults at three months, six months and a year.

ARE THERE ANY KNOWN SIDE EFFECTS TO THE PROCEDURE?

No long-term negative side effects or risks have been reported with Biologics. Any negative side effects will be in relation to the actual injection itself, as in bleeding and the risk of infection at the injection site. We have not had any infections nor bleeding issues.

HOW DOES THE TREATMENT WORK?

When the Wharton’s Jelly is placed into an environment of injured tissue, the stem cells, anti-inflammatory cytokines, growth factors, hyaluronic acid, collagen and peptides go to work inhibiting the damaging inflammatory components and modulating the immune system.

The cell signaling proteins and growth factors nourish damaged cells back to health and stimulate our own cells to participate in the regenerative process differentiating into the damaged tissue.

IS WHARTON’S JELLY FROM THE UMBILICAL CORD SAFE TO BE PUT INTO MY BODY?

Yes. Allogeneic (taken from another person of the same species) tissue is safe to put into your body. When the Wharton’s Jelly tissue is processed, all the red blood cell components with the ability to cause a negative reaction are removed so that the patient does not have an immune reaction to the transplant.
