Umbilical Cord Derived Stem Cells: A Revolutionary Medical Breakthrough

In recent years, medical advancements have led to groundbreaking discoveries in the field of regenerative medicine. One of these breakthroughs involves the use of umbilical cord derived stem cells, offering immense potential for treating a wide range of diseases and conditions.

Understanding Stem Cells

Before delving into the specific benefits of umbilical cord derived stem cells, it is essential to understand the nature of stem cells themselves. Stem cells are undifferentiated cells that possess the unique ability to develop into various specialized cell types in the body. They serve as the building blocks for tissue repair, regeneration, and growth.

Umbilical Cord Derived Stem Cells: An Abundant and Ethical Source

The human umbilical cord, a previously overlooked resource, has emerged as an abundant and ethical source of highly potent stem cells. These stem cells are obtained from the Wharton’s jelly, a gelatinous substance found within the umbilical cord. Unlike other sources of stem cells, such as bone marrow or embryonic tissue, umbilical cord derived stem cells can be harvested without causing harm to the donor, and without ethical concerns. 

How do Umbilical Cord Derived Stem Cells help?

  1. Tissue Regeneration and RepairUmbilical cord derived stem cells have shown remarkable potential in regenerating and repairing damaged tissues. They can differentiate into various cell types, including neurons, cardiomyocytes, osteoblasts, and hepatocytes, among others. This versatility makes them invaluable in treating conditions such as spinal cord injuries, joint injuries/arthritis, heart disease, bone defects, and liver disorders.
  2. Regulation of the Immune SystemAnother significant advantage of umbilical cord derived stem cells is their ability to modulate the immune system. These cells possess properties that allow them to regulate immune responses and reduce inflammation in the body. This characteristic makes them a potential treatment option for autoimmune diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis, where the immune system mistakenly attacks healthy tissues.
  3. Neurological DisordersUmbilical cord derived stem cells hold great promise in the field of neurology. These cells can help repair damaged neural circuits, stimulate the production of new neurons, and enhance synaptic connections. As a result, they offer potential therapeutic solutions for conditions like Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and stroke.
  4. Anti-Aging EffectsResearch suggests that umbilical cord derived stem cells possess anti-aging properties. They have the ability to replenish and rejuvenate aging cells, thereby slowing down the aging process. This characteristic opens up possibilities for using these stem cells in cosmetic treatments and anti-aging therapies.


Umbilical cord derived stem cells represent a revolutionary breakthrough in regenerative medicine. With their abundant supply, ethical sourcing, and remarkable therapeutic potential, these cells offer hope for millions of patients suffering from various diseases and conditions.  As further research and clinical trials progress, the full potential of umbilical cord derived stem cells will undoubtedly be realized, ushering in a new era of medical treatments and advancements.

At Castle Rock Regenerative Healthcare we are on the leading edge of stem cell treatments.  Dr. Scott is a pioneer in this field.  The stem cells we use are ethically sourced, and come from an FDA approved laboratory here in the United States.  Dr. Scott has visited this lab in person, and works directly with the lab and its owner, and therefore has complete faith in the quality of the stem cells he uses. 


In 1997, I underwent ankle surgery due to an injury sustained in the military. Fast forward to five years ago, and the pain in my ankle had become a constant companion, making even the simplest tasks, like grocery shopping, an agonizing ordeal. My quality of life was deteriorating rapidly. Enter Dr. Faulkner and the groundbreaking treatment he offered: stem cell therapy. From the beginning, it was evident that Dr. Faulkner was no ordinary physician. He took the time to truly understand my medical history, needs, and goals. His approach was anything but "cookie cutter." Dr. Faulkner's dedication to his patients is awe-inspiring.

After undergoing stem cell therapy under Dr. Faulkner's guidance, I experienced a remarkable transformation. Within the first three months, I noticed a substantial decrease in pain. Today, I am almost pain-free and able to walk and run again without the crippling discomfort that has plagued me for so long.

Frequently asked questions

In a head to head study, Umbilical Cord Stem Cells(UCST) are more effective in treating injuries and diseases than Bone Marrow Stem Cells.  UCST are younger, healthier cells and have the ability to differentiate into various cell types.  The procedure to harvest your own bone marrow stem cells can often be very painful, and umbilical derived stem cells are in abundant supply. Most Drs. that offer stem cell treatment harvest your stem cells from your bone marrow or adipose tissue and then give your old, tired cells back to you.  This treatment is often painful, and is a time consuming surgical procedure.  In a head to head study, Umbilical Cord Stem Cells(UCST) are more effective in treating injuries and diseases than Bone Marrow or Adipose Stem Cells. UCST are younger, healthier cells and have the ability to differentiate into every tissue type in the human body.  Since UCST live  for 6-8 months, they signal your own tissue to regenerate/repair over that entire time. That’s why I see improvements in joint pain, heart failure, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, Lupus, and many other diseases. 

The stem cells are administered via injection or infusion, depending on the health issue being treated, so pain/discomfort is minimal.

The stem cells we use come only from LIVE BIRTH babies’ umbilical cords.  They are harvested after a baby is born, and sent immediately to the lab for quality testing before they are sent to Dr. Scott for treatments.

Umbilical cord derived stem cells have a lower risk of rejection as they are immunologically immature. This means they are less likely to be recognized as foreign by your immune system, reducing the chances of rejection and increasing the success rate of the treatment. To date there has never been a major adverse event related to treatment with UCSTs. People who have a sulfa allergy will be pre-treated with Benadryl & Tylenol, because the preservative that the stem cells are suspended in is sulfa based. Sulfa allergy is not an absolute contraindication.

If you have a mild injury, we can help the inflammation with a cryotherapy spot treatment or whole-body cryotherapy treatment. We’ll also take preventative measures during the season to help repair the body as quickly as possible. If you have a bad strain, we can do stem cell therapy to repair the tissue. A surgeon might offer cortisone or narcotics to help ease the pain- but it won’t actually repair the damage that’s been done.

The use of Umbilical Derived Stem Cells has been approved for Leukemia, Lymphoma, and Myeloma. Our provider “A Cord For Life” is an FDA approved tissue bank.
