What Are Exosomes?

The Benefits of Stem Cells without the Cells

Exosomes are small extracellular vesicles, or small packets, released from cells, especially from stem cells. They act as shuttles for certain genetic information and proteins to other cells. They allow for cell-to-cell communication.

Age, chronic disease, environmental factors, and genetic disorders can interfere with how our stem cells communicate with other cells, thus disrupting the healing process. Exosomes play a key role in the regulation of these communication processes.

How Is the Therapy Performed?

As a part of joint rejuvenation therapy, exosomes are administered directly into the affected joint area. The normal concentration is 1 billion exosomes per 1ml. One treatment may consist of up to 15 billion exosomes. The dosing is individual to every patient and there is no set or established protocol. In some cases, exosomes may be combined with platelet rich plasma or stem cells for a more potent therapeutic effect.
When Can I Resume Physical Activity?

In order to gain an optimal response from exosome therapy, we recommend the following:

  • Refraining from anti-inflammatory medication
  • No over strenuous activity for the first 24–48 hours
  • Resume cardio workouts after 3–4 weeks
  • After four weeks resume any weight lifting and running activity if part of your prior routine
"One of my Fit Partners, aged 87, had struggled with lower back and leg pain for the last few years. An MRI discovered he had spinal stenosis and bulging discs. Surgery was not an option so we prayed and were led to Dr Sikora who recommended a stem cell shot and it worked! Praise God! After 2 1/2 months his pain is gone and he feels brand new! Thank you Dr Sikora"

Are Exosomes Safer Than Stem Cells?

Both stem cells and exosomes have their place in a treatment protocol. When performed correctly, treatment with exosomes and/or stem cell therapy is safe. Therapy with exosomes may carry a lower risk of complications as exosomes do not require an invasive surgical procedure for harvesting. In addition, exosomes can cross the blood brain barrier, suggesting their efficacy for neurological disorders.

What Can I Expect After the Procedure? Are There Any Side Effects?

Exosome therapy is performed on an outpatient basis. Most patients should expect to leave the clinic without any down time. The patient will not experience any discomfort. No long-term negative side effects have been reported.
