Essential Health & Wellness offers cutting-edge stem cell storage services from our Cary, NC clinic. This enables our Triangle-area patients to set aside their young bone marrow stem cells for later use in regenerative therapies and treatments for age-related diseases. As more and more stem-cell-related therapies are being developed and approved for public use, your banked stem cells will only continue to offer more options for your health and quality of life as you age.

Why Store My Stem Cells? The Stem Cell Banking Purpose & Procedure at Essential Health
All of your body’s systems contain stem cells, which have powerful regenerative effects used to fix aging and damaged tissues. As you get older, your stems cells naturally begin to diminish, making it harder for your body to repair itself, especially in the later years of your life. Your young adult stem cells, harvested from your hip bone, can now be stored safely and effectively for many years and even decades.
How Does the Stem Cell Harvesting Procedure Work?
At Essential Health, the process of removing and storing stem cells from your pelvic (hip) bone is fast, simple, and almost painless. We use a minimally invasive outpatient procedure with a local anesthetic to harvest your young adult stem cells. It only takes about 15 minutes. We’ll apply a bandage to the small incision site that will need to stay in place for at least 24 hours. You should be able to return to work or school the next day, but we’ll recommend you avoid moderate and heavy activity for at least a week after your procedure. After your stem cells are collected, we’ll prepare and store them using our state-of-the-art equipment for maximum longevity and viability.
What Types of Stem Cells Are Stored?
Many people have heard of stem cells but don’t realize that there are many types, each with their own functions and properties. At Essential Health, we focus on harvesting bone marrow stem cells, specifically these two main types:
Mesenchymal stem cells, which have powerful tissue-building properties, and
Hematopietic stem cells, which are capable of regenerating your blood cells.
Together, these two types of stem cells give you a broad range of treatment and therapy options for many diseases and age-related conditions. They work by stimulating your body’s natural healing processes in the safest, most effective way possible. Bone marrow stem cells have shown themselves to be the most viable and powerful types of stem cells when it comes to tissue regeneration.
What’s the Best Age to Harvest My Stem Cells for Storage?
Simply put, the younger, the better. We recommend you have your stem cells stored before the age of 60, at the very latest. Clinical research is showing that the younger you are when you have your stem cells harvested and banked, the higher the chance they’ll be high quality and viable for effective treatments and therapies. Because your stem cells begin degrading continually from adulthood, accelerating in middle age and beyond, it’s never too early. Even if you’re young and in good overall health, you may still want to consider storing your stem cells with us for your future health.
