Conventional pain treatments have been very good at reducing pain by masking discomfort in a “band-aid” fashion with oral or injected medications like steroids, narcotics, or NSAIDs. These therapies, unfortunately, do not fix the underlying problem.
Fixing Tissue Injury
So how is the condition actually repaired, whether it’s shoulder/knee/hip/ankle arthritis, back or neck pain, golfer’s or tennis elbow, rotator cuff tendonitis or a ligament injury?
Regenerative Medicine has the potential to restore anatomy with stem cells, growth factors and platelets to facilitate a healing response in one’s own body.
Stem Cells are like a blank slate and may differentiate into any number of cell types for tissue regeneration. This is in large part dependent on the environment in which they are placed.
OUR DEDICATION TO A YOUNGER YOU
While no one today can literally take you back in time, we believe we can restore your youthful physiology by re-educating your body and allowing you to look, feel, and function like you did when you were decades younger. Today’s medical science and technology gives us tools that we never had before. We now understand how your genes affect the aging process and can re-engineer the way your genes express themselves. Analysis of your genes along with your metabolism and other body functions can determine your greatest threats to rapid aging. More importantly, there is something that we can do about it. We can make a significant impact on your rate of aging, the way you look, how you feel, and how well you do the things that are important to you. We begin by directing your body in the direction of youth by giving new instruction sets that impact not only on your metabolism and hormonal balance but every organ system in your body.
AN ALTERNATIVE, HOLISTIC APPROACH TO HEALTH
Functional Medicine, or integrative medicine, has been called the “new medicine” but in many ways, it is a return to the original practice and philosophy of holistic health. Integrative practices emphasize the relationship between the doctor and patient, the innate healing ability of the body, and the importance of addressing all aspects of an individual’s life to attain optimal health and healing.
Our mission is to provide our patients and community with the most innovative musculoskeletal treatments available with the goal of accomplishing a return to activity or return to play as quickly as possible.
SMaRT is committed to providing high quality, efficient, compassionate care to every patient. We believe in a holistic approach to medicine and to care for each patient as an individual. We provide safe, evidence-based, non-operative biologic therapies as a viable and conservative alternative to surgery. When we believe surgery is the better option, we will refer to surgeons who share the same approach to their patients as we do. We work alongside other leaders of regenerative medicine and interventional orthopaedics. To this end, SMaRT is joined in a collaborative effort with Blue Tail Medical Group – pioneers in the use of stem cells and biologic therapies for musculoskeletal medicine. We welcome and actively engage the ever-changing landscape of medicine to enhance our front-line forward-thinking objectives. We hope that our patients and the communities we serve will benefit from these ideals.

Stem cell therapy involves taking stem cells from one area of the body and then injecting it into an injured area. Stem cells are responsible for rebuilding and regenerating the body. The underlying premise, is that stem cells are in fact living cells that can transform themselves into different types of tissue or functional cell. Therefore, they are able to differentiate into ligaments, tendons, bone, nerve, and cartilage.
When an injury occurs, it is the stem cells that are released and summoned by the body to rebuild damaged muscle, joints, or cartilage. By injecting these stem cells directly into the damaged area, it may assist and accelerate the body’s natural healing process.
Until recently, treatment options for osteoarthritis or joint pain were limited. Steroid injections, joint replacement surgery, and physical therapy were the only treatment options. Stem cell injections are now available and not only are they being considered in relieving pain but also in helping heal the joint.
Benefits of Stem Cell Therapy
Minimally invasive procedure
Avoid surgery and its many complications and risks
Minimal post-procedural recovery time
No use of general anesthesia
No risk of rejection since the stem cells are your own
Increased mobility and function
Who May Benefit from Stem Cell Therapy?
Stem cells may be used as therapy in the following conditions or may help improve the following:
Chronic Back Pain
Degenerative Disc Disease
Knee tendon & Ligament Injuries
Spinal Cord Injury
Stem Cells are typically taken from two areas of the body: Bone Marrow or Adipose Tissue (Lipoaspiration). Different physicians sometimes use one over the other, or both, both serve the same purpose – to provide a source of MSCs.
The Regenerative Stem Cell Institute is devoted to advancing successful outcomes and quality care in the area of adult stem cell regenerative medicine. Therapy is offered for a variety of inflammatory and degenerative conditions under an IRB Approved Research Protocol with Board Certified physicians at eight locations in Chicagoland. Under this protocol over 9000 successful stem cell procedures have been performed nationwide!
Your stem cells are your body’s natural healing cells. They are recruited by chemical signals emitted by damaged tissues (e.g. organs, cartilage, tendon) to repair and regenerate your damaged cells. Stem cells derived from your own body are the next major advancement in medicine.
The Regenerative Stem Cell Institute (TRSCI) has the technology and protocols to produce a solution rich with your own stem cells. Under our national investigational research protocols, the regenerative therapies are used to study a number of degenerative conditions and diseases.
THE STEM CELL HARVESTING PROCEDURE
TRSCI specializes in the use of adipose (fat) derived stem cells. With our current technology and protocols, we harvest your own cells under a local anesthetic, break down the collagen that binds the fat and stem cells, then separate out a solution rich in your own stem cells. The process used by TRSCI yields extremely high numbers of stem cells.
Stem cells can be harvested from several areas on your body that has an adequate supply, but we prefer to harvest it from the areas that will give you the best cosmetic result. The mini-liposuction is done under local anesthetic. This procedure is done under strict sterility and the processing of the cells uses a completely closed system. One of our experts will inject the cells according to the most appropriate route. This is called “deployment.”
Because it’s your own DNA material, no rejection occurs. A solution rich with your stem cells is administered through an injection into tissues, joints, or veins. The entire procedure takes approximately three hours.
TruStem Cell Therapy provides access to stem cell therapy only from Board Certified doctors and clinicians who meet our high standards of experience, specialization, and care. Each doctor and clinician is a specialist who works as a team to provide patient-centric stem cell therapy that is customized to your condition and symptoms.
Our stem cell therapy consists of utilizing the latest methods when harvesting, processing and administering adult stem cells. Each of the protocols and equipment used during your stem cell therapy is based on the latest and most definitive adult stem cell therapy research.
TruStem Cell Therapy is obsessed with results. By continually advancing each step of your stem cell treatment and implementing the latest research findings, we are able to stay at the forefront of adult stem cell therapy. We also do not provide access to stem cell therapy for conditions where no research exists showing efficacy. This approach toward excellence will continue to provide patients access to the safest, most effective treatment experience possible.
Our goal at Ultimate Medical Group is to educate, counsel, and offer patients options so that they can make an informed decision about their healthcare.
We want you to feel confident in your choices, confident about our abilities and comfortable in our environment. Since each patient has vastly different needs, we encourage you to schedule a consultation.
