Stem Cells

Understanding Stem Cells

Unless you have been living under a rock for the last few years, you have likely at least heard the term Stem Cells. They are being hailed as one of the most amazing discoveries of the modern medical field and their applications for patients are truly changing people’s lives. But what exactly are Stem Cells? Where do they come from? How are they being used today? These are three questions our team of Sioux City medical professionals hopes to answer for you today!

What Exactly Are Stem Cells?

Stem Cells are naturally occurring cells that are found in every human body. These cells are unique from any other cell in our bodies in that they have the power to differentiate. What this means is they are able to change into other types of cells. Stem Cells are one of the major reasons our bodies are able to heal themselves. When you injure yourself, Stem Cells flood the area and can become other types of cells such as muscle, nerve, blood, and skin and allow the body to repair that damage.

Where Do Stem Cells Come From?

Most people know Stem Cells only because of the controversy that surrounded their initial discovery and use. Decades ago, these powerhouse cells were discovered in human embryos. The use of human embryos caused major controversy, but thankfully, we now know of many other areas in the body where Stem Cells can be safely and ethically harvested including blood, marrow, and spinal fluid. We now can harvest stem cells from the patient and use their own cells in Stem Cell Therapy.

How Are We Using Stem Cells Today?

Because of their ability to differentiate into other types of cells, Stem Cells are being used to treat a range of health conditions and are also being used during surgery to speed healing and recovery. In some cases, Stem Cell Therapy can help someone avoid painful or risky surgery by healing and injury or treating illness from within the body itself. Stem Cells can be injected directly into a targeted area to help treat everything from arthritis to nerve damage to cancer.
