I am a 50 something Registered Nurse....I had both knees treated as well as a small iv injection on 12/12/18....3 months later I can honestly say my " endstage arthritic" pain is gone...I also had chronic pain from an implanted rod (hardware)to my right femur, that pain is gone... Dont hesitate to become informed about stem cells and get treated...it has been a life saver for me since I needed to be able to work as a nurse, I thought my career was over but I now have a second chance thanks to Rejuva and stem cell therapy.....

Best money I have every spent. I haven't felt this good or moved this well in at least 25 years. If you're in pain I suggest you get it done.

I had my stem cell treatment about 4 months ago. I've waited until now to write a review because I wanted to give my treatment plenty of time to work before determining whether or not it was successful. I had osteoarthritis in my hip and it hurt so much to walk, to lift my leg for any reason, to get in the car or into bed, rollover at night, walk up any incline, going up steps, etc. A steroid shot did nothing to ease the pain so it looked like a hip replacement was my only remaining option. I did some research on stem cells and became convinced that this treatment is the future of medicine. There was no doubt in my mind that I wanted to pursue stem cell therapy for my hip. 8 weeks after my injection I didn't experience much change at all. I almost convinced myself that I had done something to kill those baby stem cells and I'll admit that I was depressed and discouraged. My extra weight probably didn't help speed my recovery process! Nevertheless, I truly believed in Dr Capaldi and the science behind this treatment so I tried to stay positive. Around 3 months is when I really started to notice a significant change for the better. Now, at 4 months, I am around 95% and I am extremely pleased. There is no doubt in my mind that it will continue to improve. Yes, it was expensive especially for someone with limited resources, but it is worth every penny. God willing I won't have issues with other joints, but if I do I know exactly where I am going. I totally trust Dr Capaldi and Rejuva Stem Cell Clinic. After the success I experienced my sister has decided to travel here from AL this summer for her knee. It really works!! My greatest advice: just be patient, give those babies time to grow, and stay positive!!!

Mission accomplished! I was having major issues with my knee and was considering a knee replacement. The knee would swell, cause pain and inhibit my normal activities. I decided to do the stem cell treatment and am happy to report that it worked. I am now fully functional and able to do most of the things I normally do.

I highly recommend Rejuva Stem Cell Clinic of Jupiter and stem cell therapy. I had tried everything for my tennis and golfer’s elbow pain and nothing worked. The surgeon wanted to remove some of my tendon as a last resort. That didn’t make sense to me, so I called Rejuva. I received my stem cells one year ago and today I am pain free. It’s amazing! Before receiving the stem cells I had to use two hands to get one plate out of the upper cabinet. Now can pick up as many as want with one hand! Stem cell therapy was a great investment. Like

This was an awesome experience. From my first call to the free seminar to my consulation the entire staff was knowledgeable, kind and supportive. The procedure was amazingly easy and stem cells have changed my life. I came in having trouble even getting out if my car and now I'm planning a birthday trip to Disney! Thank you for everything! Dr. Capaldi and his staff are the epitome of compassionate professionalism.

I am very active in and need to stay in shape for my career. I also enjoy the sport of fitness as is a hobby. Early in 2019 I began feeling pain in my knee and consulted a surgeon and received an MRI. I was diagnosed with a complex tear in my meniscus and the recommendation was surgery. I began researching Stem Cell treatment for several months and elected to try it because why not. Best decision I could have made. I made an appointment with Rejuva Stem cell clinic and received an injection in my right knee. 3 short months later I was back to my normal activities and a follow up a few months after that revealed a healed meniscus as well as showing thicker meniscus overall in the knee basically suggesting that the meniscus was growing and not deteriorating. My knee feels better than ever and am not limited in my activities.

I was advised by a mentor to obtain some introductory, clinical experience with the use of ultrasound in my in my regenerative medicine practice. Most "seminars" or "hands-on" training experiences are NOT worth the money NOR time away from clinic & family! I can honestly say, that within the first half-day of training I was already so satisfied with my decision to train with Dr. Capaldi at Rejuva! - & we had just begun!!! * I lost count how many times he asked if we "all got a turn" at a procedure. * I couldn't tell you how many times he asked if we were "getting what we expected" from the course. * His patience in answering OR emonstrating technique OR anatomy was much appreciated. Incredible patience! I would recommend this to any physician or mid-level who performs injections of any nature (PRP, Stem cells, Prolo, Steroids...). The level of precision accomplished by the use of US is second to none, and the training you'll receive from Dr. Capaldi at Rejuva is as well!!! -- and is this advise from a physician who DOESN"T like to spend money NOR TIME away from family! 100% A+ 5-STAR

My experience at the Rejuva Stem Cell Clinic in Jupiter was incredible. The office is beautiful and feels very welcoming and inviting. The entire team is very knowledgeable. They took the time to answer all my questions before the procedure and I really appreciated the great follow up after my treatment. I have Hashimoto's, an auto immune condition, and after doing some research with my husband, a physician, we decided to give stem cells a try. So far, I have seen great progress from receiving the stem cell treatments and all in all, it has been a very rewarding and positive experience.

My experience at Rejuva was by far the best I have ever been treated at any treatment facility. The entire staff was friendly. I was able to tour the facility and staff members explained in detail the therapy and treatment that could be provided. All my questions were answered and there were no surprises. I received stem cell treatment for chronic migraines. It has been three weeks since the treatment and I have not had a migraine. As an additional benefit, the treatment has alleviated the constant pain and stiffness in my neck. By the second week I was able to turn my head with the same range of motion to the left and right.

Rejuva is the most friendly, welcoming clinic I have ever been to. In the short period of time since my initial treatment on knees and hips, I am already beginning to feel less joint pain and not relying on pain meds or anti-inflammatory drugs.

A couple months ago, I had scheduled a knee replacement surgery for the end of July. In the meantime a friend told me about the Rejuva Stem Cell Clinic in Jupiter. After viewing the knee surgery on line that I had already scheduled, I decided this barbaric procedure was not for me. I then decided to call the Jupiter Rejuva Stem Cell Clinic. I had two consults with Dr. Mike Tillman, and Tony Wahl and staff. I decided to get the injections in both knees. Within 2 days of the injections all pain in my knees disappeared. I am gardening, swimming, walking all without pain for the first time in years. I am so grateful for this procedure I want to tell everyone. I will always be grateful to Dr. Mike Tillman and Tony Wahl and the Staff. Thanks again for saving me from surgery and a long painful recovery. As soon as I get the okay for the Drs., I am joining a Gym, taking suba diving lessons, my bucket is endless. Thanks again for giving my health back.

So...I damaged my right knee cartilage playing softball 15 years ago and have been experiencing pain the last 8 yrs, I couldn’t run anymore and was having issues walking. Following a consultation with the staff at Rejuva, I decided I’d try a stem cell injection to regrow the cartilage. The staff here couldn’t have been more knowledgeable and helpful, and between Lauren and Tony and Mike, my trypanophobia (fear of needles...LOL) was alleviated, making the procedure essentially painless. This place is AWESOME, and I can’t thank the staff enough for all they did to set it up and make me feel comfortable during the procedure. Love you guys!!! Highly recommend this if you’re considering stem cell therapy as an alternative to invasive surgery.

I had stem cell injections in my right knee. I am 85% better. The Dr said it would take six months or more to break totally healed. I had bone on bone and a tear in meniscus, I was not ready for a knee replacement as I was not in enough pain. There was no guarantee. I say why not try the least invasive. We actually have a place in Florida and that is where I started researching stem cells. I am so pleased with treatment and the attention. I got from staff and Dr. it is great to know that you are close by when we finally move to Florida. It is definitely the way of the future. No more joint replacements if you catch it early enough.

I've been on oxy and moraine with nerve blockers (4 times a day) for almost 2 years as well as getting a nerve test, acupuncture, rf (2 times in each side) ( that's where they burn the nerves in your spine) and physical therapy . I did everything except for surgery. I had stem cell injections in both of the damaged parts of my spine on December 20, 2019 and I have had almost no pain since then and that was the last day I took any pain pills. thank you Dr. David Capaldi . I highly recommend you have this done if you have pain at all.

My husband tore his ACL in college playing soccer. He remains very active, but has always experienced problems with his knee. In addition he suffered with plantar fasciitis in both feet. Following the practically painless injections he received at Rejuva he experiences no issues. He is now able to continue his heavy lifting at the gym, playing with our kids on the floor and other day to day activities with no pain. This treatment is going to be a game changer for so many people living with joint and muscle injuries like my husband. I would highly recommend Rejuva Stem Cell Clinic and its incredible team caring for patients.

Have pain in my back and hip Mri’s Showed damage in both areas. Took $8800 to do a procedure using new born baby’s umbilical cords Although they couldn’t guarantee me, they were quite sure their stem cell treatment would work. The procedure took about 15 minutes with little discomfort Every patient showed improvement, But it takes 6 months. After 5 months with no improvement, I call and tell them. Even with physical therapy I am in more pain than I started with They say don’t lose hope give it the 6 months So now it’s 6 mo new MRI’s show more damage. When I call, they tell me over the phone, i’m the first patient that showed no improvement. My advice, research this more somewhere else I think this facility is a rip off.

Frequently Asked Questions

WHERE CAN I LEARN MORE ABOUT THE STEM CELLS THAT ARE USED?

Please DOWNLOAD this informative Powerpoint to learn more

WHAT ARE STEM CELLS?

When a baby is conceived, stem cells give rise to every cell and tissue in the body. These cells then remain within the body throughout a lifetime and become the cells that repair and replace cells that are damaged or dying through age, injury or disease. Stem cells are the basic building blocks of human tissue and have the ability to repair, rebuild, and rejuvenate tissues in the body. When a disease or injury strikes, stem cells respond to specific signals and set about to facilitate the healing process by differentiating into specialized cells required for the body’s repair. They release healing growth factors in response to a distress cell signal in an injured or pathologic area of the body.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO SEE RESULTS?

Since each condition and patient is unique, there is no guarantee of how fast the results will be achieved. According to patient feedback, most patients report results within a few days; however, it may take as long as 3 to 6 months.

ARE THERE ANY KNOWN SIDE EFFECTS TO THE PROCEDURE?

No long-term negative side effects or risks have been reported. The side effects of umbilical cord derived stem cell therapies are rare and may include but are not limited to: infection, minor bleeding at the treatment site, and localized pain. These side effects typically last no longer than 24 hours.

ARE THERE SPECIFIC NUMBERS OF CELLS NECESSARY TO TREAT DIFFERENT PROBLEMS?

Exact numbers for peak efficacy is still not known for many conditions; however, worldwide research over almost 20 years has given us some effective parameters. Most research supports the notion that more cells are often better and the body may utilize the extras in other ways that can be beneficial.

IS THERE A SPECIAL PROTOCOL/METHOD FOR INJECTING STEM CELLS INTO PATIENTS?

YES. We inject the cells into the desired area the same way as any other injection. The only difference is in the preparation and our use of precision guided ultrasound, which allows us to inject precisely into the affected tissues.

DO YOU NEED TO MIX/DILUTE THE UMBILICAL CORD CELLS BEFORE INJECTION?

The cells may be injected directly into the desired area without any dilution or we may choose to add Hyalgan if the cells are being deployed into a weight bearing joint. Hyalgan does not negatively effect the viability of stem cells.

ARE ANY ANESTHETICS BETTER TO USE THAN OTHERS?

Yes. There is some research showing that ‘sodium channel blockers’ (lidocaine, carbocaine, etc.) have a damaging effect on the nucleated cells whereas the ‘amide group’ of local anesthetics (Marcaine, bupivacaine,ropivacaine) does not have the same damaging effect.

CAN I USE LOCAL ANESTHETIC?

Local anesthetics may be used to numb the needle pathway; however, we do NOT want to infuse large amounts of any local anesthetic into the joint or area being treated. Most people have little to no issue with the actual procedure without anesthetic. When we treat intradiscally (injection inside the intervertebral disc) we typically give a mild sedative prior to the procedure.

DOES CELL AGE MATTER?

Yes, age definitely matters. In Vitro research by the International Journal of Molecular Sciences has shown that while young, vibrant umbilical cord stem cells can duplicate themselves every 22-28 hours, for up to 65 generations or more, 50+ year old bone marrow aspirate and adipose derived stem cells duplicate at a much slower rate of 3 to 5 days for an average of only 11 to 13 generations. Also of note is that older cells undergo senescence (aging) at a much faster rate than young, vibrant umbilical cord cells and older senescent cells produce less quantities and less effective growth factors, proteins, and cytokines.

HOW DO UMBILICAL CORD STEM CELLS ACTUALLY WORK?

When umbilical cord cells are placed into an environment of injured tissue, the stem cells go to work inhibiting the damaging inflammatory components and modulating the immune system. At the same time, the mononucleated cells produce growth factors that nourish damaged cells back to health and stimulate our own cells to regenerate themselves.

ARE THERE OTHER STEM CELL PRODUCTS THAT CONTAIN LIVE NUCLEATED CELLS?

Yes, bone marrow aspirate and adipose derived stem cells also contain live nucleated cells.

ARE LIVE NUCLEATED CELLS CREATED EQUAL?

No. Live nucleated cells from umbilical cord blood are young, vibrant cells that have not been affected by age or disease. Whereas bone marrow aspirate and adipose derived stem cells\ are significantly older and potentially damaged by disease, a high number replications throughout a lifetime, toxins like sunlight, alcohol, medications and smoking.

ARE LIVE NUCLEATED CELLS IMPORTANT?

Yes. The presence of live nucleated cells means the anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory components from the MSCs will continue to be produced for many weeks and months, optimizing the injured environment. At the same time, the growth factors, proteins, and cytokines produced by the mononucleated cells will stimulate our own endogenous tissue to repair and regenerate itself.

ARE UMBILICAL CORD CELLS THE SAME AS AMNIOTIC FLUID?

No. Umbilical cells are LIVE NUCLEATED CELLS containing stem cells, which will continue to produce anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory components optimizing the local cellular environment. They also contain mononucleated cells, which produce growth factors, proteins, and cytokines, which stimulate our own tissue to regenerate itself. Because the cells are LIVE, they can continue to exert the cellular function for weeks and even months in the body. Conversely, amniotic fluid/tissue must be processed in such a way that KILLS the live nucleated cells leaving a product having an effect for several hours to a few days.

ARE UMBILICAL CORD STEM CELLS FROM ANOTHER PERSON SAFE TO BE PUT INTO MY BODY?

Yes. Allogeneic (taken from another person of the same species) cells are safe to put into your body. When the umbilical cord is processed, all the red blood cell components with the ability to cause a negative reaction are removed. Also, the umbilical cord cells are naïve/immatur and do NOT react the way a mature adult cell would react. “Mesenchymal stem cells produce huge quantities of bio-molecules, some of which are immunosuppressive; MSCs put up a curtain of molecules around themselves that allows donor (allogenic) MSCs to be transplanted into a recipient, free from an immune response. (Immune privileged/Immune Masked)” >Arnold Caplan, PhD. Case Western Reserve University. Experimental and Molecular Medicine (2013) 45 Mesenchymal stem cells: environmentally responsive therapeutics for regenerative medicine

DO UMBILICAL CORD STEM CELLS CAUSE CANCER OR CAUSE CANCER TO GROW?

No. Many studies have been done to show the long-term safety of umbilical cord stem cells and they are conclusive showing not only do stem cells not proliferate or grow cancer, but stem cells are in fact classified as anti-tumorogenic. Multiple studies are being done around the world showing stem cells can actually fight cancer and stop the growth of cancer cells. This research is ongoing and the exact effects of stem cells for the treatment of cancer is, as of yet, unknown. It should be noted that some studies have shown Autologous Stem Cells (taken from the fat or bone marrow of a patient and put back into the same patient) can proliferate metastasis and increase tumor growth.

IS DNA TESTING NECESSARY?

No. DNA testing is not necessary because the stem cells and mononucleated cells do NOT penetrate the nucleus of the recipients’ cells and thus, do not pass on DNA. The ability of a stem cell to pass along DNA matter is a property of a stem cell when it is in the embryonic stage and this is no longer possible after the 10th week of gestation.

WHAT IS THE DESIRED LEAD TIME TO SCHEDULE MY INJECTION FOLLOWING A CONSULTATION?

Since Rejuva Stem Cell Clinic keeps inventory cryopreserved on site, you may receive your injection on the same visit if you wish or you can schedule a time that is most convenient for you in the future.

IS THERE AN AGE LIMIT FOR PATIENTS?

No, there is not an age limit. Patients of all ages can potentially benefit from stem cell treatments.

CAN YOU SPLIT THE CONTENTS OF THE VIAL ON DIFFERENT PATIENTS?

No. You may NOT split the contents of the vial and use on 2 different patients. For regulatory and tracking purposes, the vials are SINGLE USE and can only be used on a SINGLE PATIENT.

IS TISSUE MATCHING NECESSARY?

No. HLA matching is not necessary for the stem cells we use because HLA-DR, the component responsible for a negative reaction, is below measurable amounts. Even in the 1990s, when HLA-DR\ extraction techniques were far less efficient than they are today, negative HLA-DR reactions were not commonly seen.

HOW DO YOU GET THE CELLS FROM THE LAB?

The cells are delivered to Rejuva Stem Cell Clinic from the lab via FedEx on dry Ice (-125 C) in a Styrofoam container and an outer cardboard box. The package arrives in less than 24 hours.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU RECEIVE THE CELLS?

The container with the dry ice is maintained -125 C for at least 48 hours; however, when the cells arrive at our office, they are immediately transferred to our liquid nitrogen holding tank where we store them in the vapor phase of LNO2 at -180 to -192 Celsius. The cells can be stored for years if necessary because there is little to no cellular metabolism at these extremely cold temperatures.

CAN YOU SPREAD CONTENTS OF THE VIAL ON THE SAME PATIENT FOR MORE THAN ONE AREA OF THE BODY?

Yes. You may split the contents of a vial on the same patient. For example, the doctor may split the vial and inject the equally divided contents into 2 or 3 joints for the desired minimum of cells per medium to large sized joint.

DO YOU USE MY OWN STEM CELLS?

No. Rejuva Stem Cell Clinic utilizes human umbilical cord stem cells, which many consider to be the most advanced stem cell product available.  Published research reveals stem cells from the umbilical cord replicate faster and replicate for many more generations than other types of stem cells. Umbilical cord stem cells also have a higher level of pluripotency than mature adult stem cells helping the body regenerate lost tissue like cartilage, muscle and soft tissue faster and more effectively.

WILL I HAVE TO MISS WORK OR ACTIVITIES?

Most patients experience no downtime whatsoever; however, if your work requires you to do activities that are damaging or traumatic to the tissue that was treated, you may need to refrain from those activities. If you are participating in a sport or activity that is damaging to the tissue being treated, we will likely ask you to refrain for a period of 4-6 weeks. For example, if you are a tennis player and we treat your knee, you would need to refrain from playing tennis for 4-6 weeks.

WILL I NEED PHYSICAL REHABILITATION?

We provide a very detailed post procedure booklet to help ensure your success. You may request this prior to your procedure. In a nutshell, mobility is a very important part of your recovery and we typically recommend you receive some help from a provider that specializes in physical rehabilitation.

HOW OFTEN WILL I NEED TREATMENT?

This depends on the area and condition being treated. For many degenerative joint conditions and soft tissue tears, we anticipate needing to treat just once in a patient’s lifetime if no new injury traumatizes the joint following treatment.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

Treatments are condition specific and patient specific. The cost is determined by the number of stem cells deployed. Most patients are treated for less than the cost of braces for teeth or Lasik surgery for vision. Treatments for small joints like knees or shoulders can be treated for as little as $3,600. Larger joints require more cells so the cost increases. increases. A hip is a large joint and can be treated for as little as $5,600.

DOES MY INSURANCE COVER STEM CELL THERAPY?

Unfortunately, no insurances cover stem cell therapy as they are not yet FDA approved, which makes our process and the stem cell product even more economical and desirable. We anticipate an expedited approval that will happen in 3-5 years but no one knows for sure how long it will take. It will likely come in segmental approvals for certain conditions as the human trial evidence mounts.

HOW DO I KNOW IF I AM A CANDIDATE?

When a baby is conceived, stem cells give rise to every cell and tissue in the body. These cells then remain within the body throughout a lifetime. Stem cells are the basic building blocks of human tissue and have the ability to repair, rebuild, and rejuvenate tissues in the body. When a disease or injury strikes, stem cells respond to specific signals and set about to facilitate the healing process by differentiating into specialized cells required for the body’s repair. They release healing growth factors in response to a distress cell signal in an injured or pathologic area of the body.
