One of the most common questions we receive from patients is whether stem cells are safe. It’s important to note that stem cell therapy has been extensively researched.
Stem cell therapy is a non-invasive treatment option that utilizes the body’s own healing capabilities to regenerate damaged or diseased tissue. The stem cells used in our treatments are allogenic, that is, harvested from consenting donors and processed for sterility and purity.

About Stem Cells
Stem cells have been a hot topic in the medical community for years, and for good reason. These unique cells have the potential to regenerate damaged or diseased tissue, making them a promising avenue for the treatment of a wide range of conditions, from neurological disorders to cardiovascular diseases and orthopedic injuries. Stem cells are undifferentiated cells that have the ability to differentiate into specialized cells and tissues in the body. They are also capable of self-renewal, which means they can divide and create more stem cells and a wide range of other types of specialized cells. There are different types of stem cells, and each type has its own unique properties and potential uses in regenerative medicine. However, with this great potential comes some ethical concerns and questions about safety. Daisy Stem Cell Therapy uses stem cells derived from donated umbilical cord blood. These samples are taken after a healthy baby is born, and the parents have consented to donate the umbilical cord to be used for medical purposes. This is the only kind of stem cell product that is approved by the FDA.(1)
Safety Considerations for Stem Cell Therapy
One of the main challenges of stem cells therapy is managing the differentiation process. This ensures that the cells become the specific types of cells needed to heal and replace injured tissues.
Another concern surrounding stem cell therapy is the risk of side effects and immune response. When stem cells are transplanted into the body, there is a risk that the immune system will recognize them as foreign and attack them. This can lead to inflammation, tissue damage, and other complications. However, there are ways to mitigate these risks, such as using immunosuppressive drugs or genetically modifying the stem cells to avoid detection by the immune system.(2)
Choosing a Reputable Provider
Another concern is the potential for unproven stem cell therapies and stem cell clinics that offer treatments without proper clinical trials and regulation. Patients should be aware of the risks and benefits of any treatment they receive and make informed decisions based on the available evidence. It’s important to seek treatment from reputable clinics and to ensure that informed consent and quality control measures are in place.
Stem cell donors are carefully screened, and after the cells have been harvested, the cells undergo rigorous testing.The stem cells used for therapy are tested for:
- Diseases like HIV, Hepatitis B and C
- Bacterial and fungal contamination (3)
Despite these concerns, stem cell therapy has shown great promise in the treatment of various diseases and injuries. Clinical trials and research studies have demonstrated positive patient outcomes and therapeutic potential. The FDA has approved certain stem cell therapies for use in specific conditions, and ongoing research continues to explore new applications and techniques for stem cell therapy.
At Daisy Stem Cell Therapy, we are dedicated to providing safe and effective stem cell treatments for a variety of conditions. Our team of experts utilizes the latest research and techniques to ensure the best possible outcomes for our patients. We believe that education is key in helping patients make informed decisions about their health and treatment options, and we strive to provide thorough and comprehensive information about stem cell therapy.

Benefits of Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cell therapy is a cutting-edge treatment that can help patients recover from injuries and illnesses by stimulating the body’s natural healing processes. As with any medical procedure, many people have concerns about the safety of stem cell therapy. Firstly, it is important to understand that all treatments come with some degree of risk. However, stem cell therapy is considered safe when performed by a qualified professional in a clinical setting, and using stem cell products that comply with regulations.
Unlike other surgical procedures, stem cell therapy is a minimally invasive procedure that does not require incisions or general anesthesia. This means that there is a reduced risk of complications compared to more invasive procedures.
At Daisy Stem Cell Therapy, we understand that safety is a top concern for our patients considering stem cell therapy. That’s why we offer personal consultations with Dr. John Haasis to discuss the safety and efficacy of our treatments. During your consultation, Dr. Haasis will review your medical history and current health status to determine whether stem cell therapy is a viable option for you. He will also explain the science behind stem cell therapy and how it can be used to treat a variety of conditions, ranging from joint pain to autoimmune disorders.
Dr. Haasis will address any concerns you may have about the safety of stem cell therapy, explaining the rigorous testing and regulations that govern our treatments. Our stem cells are ethically sourced and screened to ensure their safety and potency. We also follow strict protocols to minimize the risk of infection or other complications. If you decide to proceed with stem cell therapy, Dr. Haasis will develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your unique needs and goals. He will monitor your progress throughout the process, ensuring that you achieve the best possible outcomes.
Before undergoing any stem cell therapy, it’s important to do your research and fully understand the risks and benefits. At Daisy Stem Cell Therapy, we prioritize patient safety and take every precaution necessary to minimize potential risks. Here are some steps you can take to ensure a safe and successful stem cell therapy experience:
- Schedule a consultation with Dr. Haasis to discuss your medical history, treatment goals, and any concerns you may have

Recovery and Results
After the procedure, some patients may experience mild discomfort or swelling, but it usually subsides within a few days. You can return to your daily activities immediately after the procedure, but we recommend avoiding strenuous activities for a few weeks. Dr. Haasis will provide you with specific aftercare instructions tailored to your individual needs.
The results of stem cell therapy vary based on the patient’s condition and other factors. However, many of our patients report significant improvements in their symptoms, such as reduced pain and inflammation, improved mobility, and enhanced quality of life. The best part is that stem cell therapy offers long-lasting results without the need for surgery or medication.
At Daisy Stem Cell Therapy, we understand that safety and affordability are top priorities for our patients. We believe that everyone should have access to this innovative treatment option, which is why we offer competitive pricing for our stem cell therapy procedures. The cost may vary depending on the type of treatment you require, the number of sessions needed, and other individual factors. However, during your initial consultation with Dr. Haasis, we will provide you with a personalized quote that accurately reflects the costs associated with your unique treatment plan.
