Research has shown the larger the volume of specialist Mesenchymal cells used in treatment, the greater the potential to stabilise joint inflammation and give longevity to the joint which in turn could lessen pain and improve joint function.

Because we have our own laboratories, we are able to grow or multiply these cells to hundreds of millions within a two month period. The image to the right shows the cells at various stages of multiplication.

Once expanded, up to 100 million cells are then injected back into the joint or area of pain.


Our patient data shows the minimum quantity of cells for the best result is 50 million Mesenchymal stem cells per joint. Depending on the joint size and location, we often inject up to 100 million cells per joint.

As part of our protocol we validate the quality and quantity of the cells we cultivate and inject through stem cell characterisation. This is carried out at an independent laboratory.

There are a range of stem cell treatments on the market. In New Zealand most are offered as a same-day treatment.  

In same-day treatments, a maximum of 3-5 million Mesenchymal cells at best can be derived but there is no way of verifying the number or quality of them.
