Stem Cell Centers is a network of the country’s top regenerative medicine doctors.
Together, we provide standardized care based on researched protocols that are proven to work – our patients have a much better chance of getting better and healing.
We are actively involved in IRB (Institutional Review Board is also known as the Independent Ethics Committee) reviewed research for many different conditions in the regenerative medicine field. By doing so, we have developed (and continue to develop) many protocols and standards for others in our specialty field to utilize. As a leading practice in regenerative medicine, a unique feature within our clinics is that we don’t rely on just one type of stem cell. Each of our clinics offers amniotic and concentrated cord blood and bone marrow stem cells.
We have multiple locations across the country with many more coming soon. You’ll be glad to know that we retain protocol consistency within all our clinics. That means that along with successful treatment, you’ll find care, respect, and understanding regardless of which clinic you visit. So if you refer a friend or loved one to one of our Stem Cell Centers, they’ll be sure to receive the same great care as you did.

What is Stem Cell Therapy?
The goal of stem cell therapy is to use healthy stem cells found in the body to replace or activate your body’s own stem cells at an injured site. When you have damaged tissue anywhere in your body, the damaged tissue lets off signals to attract your body’s own stem cells. Unfortunately, as you age, the number of stem cells in your body significantly decreases and the potency of those stem cells also significantly decreases, which can result in a dramatic decrease in your healing ability. Stem Cell Therapy introduces large amounts of regenerative factors to the injured tissue to substantially increase your body’s healing potential and ability. This injection of stem cells and various other growth factors is believed to activate your body’s own stem cells to start healing the injured tissue. The stem cells may be harvested from the patient or from a donor. Once they have been safely extracted, they are reinjected back into the body to rebuild properly functioning tissues.
A stem cell is unique because of its ability to turn into any type of cell in your body. It can divide, multiply, renew, and regenerate. These cells don’t carry out specialized functions like brain cells, red blood cells, or white blood cells, but they are the most vital component in repairing and replacing damaged or torn tissue. They are the essential building blocks of life.
What are the different types of stem cells?
There are three types of stem cells that may be used in stem cell therapy. They differ in their harvesting location (where they are found) as well as their functions and abilities. When harvesting stem cells, many other healing substances are also collected. These include growth factors, growth hormones, cytokines, and proteins.
The three sources for stem cells and growth factors:

Our mission is to provide excellent orthopaedic care to our community. We believe in conservative management first, and surgery second. In addition to great patient care, we believe that our emphasis on education sets us apart. We feel strongly that the patient should be empowered to make medical decisions, and we strive to provide a base of knowledge to facilitate that.
Dr. Mallari, a Board Certified Physiatrist (Pain Doctor) with a subspecialty focus on Interventional Pain Management, is one of the early leaders of a nationally growing trend of Pain Management & Rehabilitation (PM&R) physicians performing interventional pain procedures (for which there is a specialty code with Medicare and Medicaid services). Dedicated to treating pain, Dr. Mallari remains current with professional and technological advances in the treatment of pain. As a result, The Center for Pain Care is one of the first ten clinics in the United States to offer laser treatment for pain.
Patients travel from other states to Boise specifically to obtain Dr. Mallari pain care treatments and therapies which help to avoid surgery and drugs
