The human stem cell and tissue materials used at SpineOne come from the umbilical cords of healthy, full-term deliveries. Wharton’s Jelly is a gelatinous substance in the umbilical cord that provides cushioning and support to the umbilical veins and arteries. The cushioning and protective elements from Wharton’s Jelly consist of structural proteins, pericytes, mesenchymal stem cells, cytokines, chemokines, and growth factors.
In other words, these stem cells are derived from the same substances that help early cell growth, and have been indicated to support tissue repair and regrowth in orthopedic applications. They may contribute to the repair of broken down tissue in joints and bones.
