A very common question that patients ask us is "How do I choose the right clinic from all the regenerative medicine clinics in Houston?" The simple answer is to find the clinic with the most well-educated doctor, one that uses only the highest quality cellular tissue and verifies the tissue's quality before injecting it into your body, and one that stores those cells at the recommended minus 200° Fahrenheit. It’s also a very good idea to choose a doctor who has performed hundreds, if not thousands, of regenerative medicine treatments.
You might think....well, doesn't this describe every one of the regenerative medicine clinics in Houston? Unfortunately, it does not.
Here are the questions you should ask before selecting one of the many regenerative medicine clinics in Houston:
- How do you store the cellular tissue that you use?
- Have you visited the lab that you buy the tissue from?
- Do you own a cell counter so that you can verify the cells in each tissue sample?
- What special education do you have in the field of regenerative medicine?
- How many regenerative medicine procedures have you performed?
Many local regenerative medicine clinics have done very few procedures and store the tissue in regular freezers. Some are even just like the freezer you may have at home. In order for the tissue to maintain its maximum efficacy, it must be stored at minus 200° Fahrenheit. There is no regular freezer than can achieve that low temperature. The only way to reach minus 200°F is to store the tissue in a liquid nitrogen tank.
Why don’t most regenerative medicine clinics own liquid nitrogen tanks to store their cellular tissue? The tanks are very expensive and require a tremendous commitment to regenerative medicine by the doctor. We have a liquid nitrogen storage tank at our clinic because we have a very strong commitment to regenerative medicine.
Quality Varies at Different Regenerative Medicine Clinics
Many clinics simply buy cells based on price. Most times, the doctor accepts a sales rep's word regarding the quality of the tissue. You are considering regenerative therapy to either heal an injury or combat the effects of aging...do you really want the cheapest or lowest quality cells injected into your body?
Dr. An personally visits every lab that we work with prior to accepting any cellular tissue from them. She verifies the quality of tissue samples at every lab, as well as how they store the samples and their harvesting procedures to be sure that you’re getting the best cell tissue possible. Most doctors never see the lab they are buying tissue from, so they couldn’t possibly know for sure that you are receiving the very best cell tissue that is both stored and cared for properly.

The Campbell Medical Clinic has performed well over 1000 regenerative medicine procedures with great success. Whether you are considering treatment for knee pain, joint pain, back pain, an injury, or aesthetic procedure to help you look as young as you feel, we can help you meet your goal.
Our quality control does not stop there. We have a cell counter in our clinic so that we can count the number of cells in each of the samples before introducing them into your body. This may surprise you, but the number of cells in tissue varies greatly. Without count verification, we would have no way of knowing if you are receiving the perfect amount of cells for your treatment. Most regenerative medicine clinics do not own cell counters. Again, they are relying on the lab and the salesperson to tell them how many are in the tissue.
What is the Cost of Regenerative Medicine Treatments?
Regenerative medicine treatment cost is based upon the amount of tissue that you need to achieve your goal. It is priced per injection or cc of tissue.
