What Can Stem Cell Therapy Treat?

Stem cell therapy is a key treatment modality in regenerative medicine. Stem cells are a special type of cell because they are undifferentiated. This means that they can turn into most other types of cells, such as connective tissue, muscle, or bone cells. For therapeutic purposes, stem cells can heal and regenerate damaged cells in almost any part of the body. 

At Daisy Stem Cell Therapy, Dr. John C. Haasis III provides expert stem cell therapy procedures for patients with a variety of ailments in North and South Carolina. He dedicates his life to staying on the cutting-edge of medical technology in the hopes of making his patients’ lives better.

About Stem Cell Therapy

Stem cells are like a blank slate for human growth and development. Not only do they have the ability to change into more specialized types of cells, but they can continue to divide into more and more of the types of cells that they turn into. They are unique in that they can continue to multiply in their new forms indefinitely, whereas other cells have defined lifespans. (1) This gives them regenerative and therapeutic properties beyond the scope of traditional medicine that simply addresses the symptoms of an issue. 

The transformation of stem cells into more specific types is already the natural route of human development, so their medicinal use is among the most natural treatments you can receive. Scientists agree that the potential for transformative and regenerative treatment with stem cells is virtually endless. (2) With stem cell therapy, you can alleviate your symptoms while building your body back stronger and healthier. 

Orthopedic Injuries

Orthopedic injuries can be debilitating. They cause pain, limit mobility, and have a significant impact on one’s quality of life. Traditional treatments often focus on symptom management or invasive procedures, such as surgery. However, stem cell therapy presents an innovative approach that aims to stimulate the body’s natural healing mechanisms.

With stem cell therapy, we utilize the remarkable regenerative capabilities of stem cells to promote tissue repair and regeneration. By introducing these potent cells into the affected area, we can target damaged tissues and facilitate their rejuvenation.

Orthopedic Injuries Treated

Other Common Conditions

Stem cell therapy has emerged as a promising treatment option for non-orthopedic conditions such as nerve damage, neurodegenerative diseases and disorders, and autoimmune disorders, offering a multitude of benefits that can significantly impact patients’ lives. 

Benefits of Stem Cell Therapy

Stem cell therapy offers many incredible benefits. It can induce natural healing, increase mobility, alleviate pain, and improve aesthetics. The body can heal itself naturally, but when it struggles to do so on its own, stem cell therapy can deliberately kickstart healing at a fundamental level. This allows patients to receive expert medical care while keeping the internal processes of healing completely natural. This treatment ingeniously utilizes the body’s own natural process of healing. 

The stem cell therapy procedures that we provide are non-surgical and minimally invasive. This means that they do not involve lengthy downtime, complicated recovery measures, and visible scarring. They also offer a more natural alternative to prescription medication. 

Who is a Candidate for Stem Cell Therapy?

If you struggle with chronic or acute pain, stem cell therapy might be the right choice for you. Whether or not you are eligible for this treatment depends on a few variables. You should be in relatively good health so that the stem cells have a higher chance of taking hold and adapting to their new environment. Know that the condition or ailment that you have may not be best treated with stem cell therapy. You also may not have the proper amount of stem cells to source for your treatment. We can determine your candidacy at your consultation. 

Personal Consultation

At your consultation, Dr. Haasis will answer all of your stem cell-related questions. We want you to be as informed as you can be before you decide to undergo stem cell therapy. We will run some tests and ask some questions about your condition, your symptoms, and all potential causes. Together with a discussion about your medical history and the goals you have for your well-being, we will be able to determine if stem cells are right for you. Be sure to come prepared to answer questions about your medical history, including information on all past surgeries, conditions, and prescriptions.

Stem Cell Therapy Procedure

The stem cell therapy procedure is fairly simple. We perform them as outpatient procedures, which means you can go home the same day as your treatment. When you arrive at our facility, we will prepare you by administering local anesthesia to numb your treatment area and prevent any potential discomfort. Dr. Haasis will then inject the stem cells directly into the area of your body that needs healing and regeneration. If you need axial spinal or appendicular joint injections, he will use fluoroscopy or ultrasound-assisted guidance to provide precise injections. When the procedure is complete, you may go home as soon as you feel ready. 


Stem cell therapy requires far less downtime and care than traditional and invasive surgeries. You may experience some redness, swelling, and bruising around your injection site. This may cause mild discomfort, but these symptoms should dissipate in just a few days. If you can, taking a few days off to rest will help your body accept the stem cells in their new location. However, you can resume everyday activity when you feel up to it. 


Stem cell therapy does not provide instant relief for the conditions that it treats. Upon injection, the stem cells still need to attach themselves to their new environment, turn into the targeted type of cell, and begin to heal and regenerate the surrounding area. This can take some time, and it may be several months until you begin to feel the results. However, once the stem cells begin to heal your body, your pain will be alleviated, and your quality of life will greatly improve. Every patient’s body reacts differently to stem cell therapy, and results do vary. Regardless of the efficacy of your treatment, traditional physical therapy and healthy living in general will always be important factors in upholding your well-being

Corresponding & Complementary Procedures 

At Daisy Stem Cell Therapy, we offer additional procedures that can correspond with and complement your stem cell treatment. 


PRP and PPP (Platelet-Rich Plasma and Platelet-Poor Plasma), like stem cell therapy, are treatments that utilize the body’s resources to promote healing without the need for invasive surgery or toxic medications. By using your own blood, Dr. Haasis can create a serum of plasma that is rich in platelets, an important ingredient in the body’s healing process. Injecting PRP into an injured or compromised area of the body will kickstart and accelerate the healing process. Creating PRP also leaves some PPP leftover, a similar serum that is low in platelets. PPP typically contains other healing-friendly components like fibrinogen. It can treat conditions like nerve hydrodissection and carpal tunnel syndrome. Together with stem cell therapy, harnessing the power of your plasma at Daisy Stem Cell Therapy could boost your health and healing even further. 

Medical Acupuncture

Medical acupuncture is a scientifically-backed and holistic treatment that we often combine with stem cell therapy. By placing acupuncture needles at precise points around the body, this treatment can encourage healing and even improve bodily function. Acupuncture utilizes the latest scientific understanding of neuromuscular anatomy to stimulate the central and peripheral nervous system. This sets off a cascading chain of events within the body that leads to pain relief and healing. 

How Much Does Stem Cell Therapy Cost in the Carolinas?

The cost of stem cell therapy can vary depending on the specifics of your case. These variables include whether or not your stem cells are viable for donation, the condition of your ailment, and how many sessions you will end up requiring. It can be covered by insurance, though this is not guaranteed. We can discuss insurance possibilities at your personal consultation.

Can stem cells treat orthopedic injuries?

If you’re seeking a non-surgical approach to address your orthopedic injury, stem cell therapy may be a viable option worth considering. Whether you’re suffering from joint pain, cartilage defects, or other musculoskeletal conditions, stem cell therapy may offer a non-surgical option for promoting tissue regeneration and enhancing the healing process.

Can stem cells treat neurodegenerative disease?

Cell-based therapies, including stem cell therapy, offer a novel approach to address the underlying causes of neurodegenerative diseases. Stem cells have the unique ability to differentiate into various cell types, including neurons. By introducing healthy stem cells into the affected areas, we aim to replace or repair damaged neurons, potentially slowing down or halting disease progression.

Are there any risks or side effects associated with stem cell therapy?

As with any medical procedure, there are potential risks and side effects associated with stem cell therapy. These can include infection, bleeding, allergic reactions, and rare complications related to the site of stem cell administration. However, serious adverse events are rare, especially when the procedure is performed by experienced and skilled practitioners.
