Wharton’s Jelly injection
Wharton’s Jelly is the gelatinous connective tissue that is found in the umbilical cord. This once discarded substance that was once thought of as after birth waste, is chocked full of healing substances and abundant in mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs).
The mesenchymal stem cells that are found in Wharton’s Jelly are special in that they are not readily recognized by the body’s immune system. They are considered “primitive cells,” meaning they contain similar properties to embryonic cells. This means that when mesenchymal stem cells derived from Wharton’s Jelly are injected into the patient, there is a reduced risk they will have an immune reaction to the cells.
Minimally processed Wharton’s Jelly preserves the growth factors and proteins needed for effective healing.
Who can benefit from Wharton’s Jelly Treatment?
Wharton’s Jelly is a component used in regenerative medicine, that is medicine that uses naturally occurring cells and substances to promote regeneration of tissue and healthy cells. This natural substance contains collagen, anti-inflammatory properties, growth protein as well as hyaluronic acid.
This means that treatment with Wharton’s Jelly can help with a variety of ailments including degenerative diseases, osteoarthritis, ligament and muscle damage, joint pain and inflammation, chronic pain, as well as promote wound healing.
There are no age restrictions on who can receive this treatment and oftentimes a patient will only need treatment once.
How does Wharton’s Jelly Treatment Work?
A specialized, minimally processed product derived from the Wharton’s Jelly is injected into the injured site. While numbing is not always needed, at times lidocaine will be used for particularly sensitive areas. This process is a relatively painless pinch of a needle. Once the Wharton’s Jelly substance is injected, the cells get to work. The mesenchymal stem cells begin to transform into the cells that are needed to regenerate damaged tissue. This inturn reduces inflammation and pain and returns functionality to the body.
Are there Any Side Effects to the Treatment?
No long-term risks or side effects have been reported. It is important to talk with your doctor about proper protocols around treatment.
Reasons to Undergo Cellular Therapy in Cancun, Mexico with us
Chief among the many advantages that come with receiving your cellular therapy treatment in Mexico, there is the possibility to cultivate and reproduce, in a laboratory environment, those cells which have been extracted from patients. That is to say that a patient can be administered a much larger concentration of cells, which leads to improved results.
Additionally, Mexico is a wonderful option for those treatments that require a more invasive approach– a larger operating team, more medical products and PPE. Mexico is one of the Western Hemisphere’s largest medical tourism capitals, which means that treatments there are performed in hospitals that comply with FDA regulations, and are offered at a more affordable price point.
One can imagine that these types of treatments require a large investment on the side of the patient, however, the cost of a multiple-day cellular therapy treatment in Mexico, is far more affordable than the same treatment– that is, without the ability to use culture-expanded cells, in the United States and Canada.
What is the Recovery Period?
The actual injection will not cause the need for a recovery period. Most patients can go right back to their normal day activities. In cases of injury to ligaments or joints, rest of the injury may be required. Please follow your doctor’s advice for best results from treatment.
Overall Wharton’s Jelly injection treatment is minimally invasive and can help with a variety of ailments. With it’s limited side effects and regenerative properties, it is safe for patients of any age.

Exosomes: everything you need to know about this new therapy
Stem cell-derived exosome therapy is an effective and safe way to relieve chronic pain, leaving behind the need for invasive treatments, such as surgery or drugs with undesirable side effects.
What is exosome therapy?
Normally our cells release substances through envelope-like structures called vesicles. Exosomes are a type of vesicle produced especially by stem cells (mesenchymal cells).
In essence, these small messengers transport crucial molecules or substances, such as signaling proteins or genetic information from one cell to another in order to modulate or generate a response.
The aim of these vesicles is to enhance nerve signaling between cells to reduce the inflammatory response, while at the same time stimulating cell regeneration and modifying immune reactions to pathogens and other diseases.
Why do exosomes relieve pain and inflammation?
With aging, our reparative cells lose some of their ability to respond. Some environmental factors, genetic alterations, or chronic diseases, such as autoimmune disorders and Lyme disease can also interfere with or alter signaling between cells, leaving them unable to mediate inflammation and repair injured tissues.
The main goal of exosome therapy is to modulate both T cells and NK cells in the immune system. Both cells are critical for a balanced immune response, but when that balance is lost for multiple reasons, the result is often an immune imbalance that causes pain and chronic inflammation that is difficult to manage.
These vesicles work by regulating the activity of these cells. For example, when a joint is affected, exosomes are responsible for sending regulatory signals only to the altered cells to restore their normal function.
Therefore, exosomes play a leading role in the regulation and repair of damaged cells and tissues.
What does this new therapy consist of?
The exosomes are administered through an injectable solution that is applied to the affected area. In a single milliliter of solution, there can be between one and 16 billion exosomes. The dosage will depend on the patient’s needs and the therapeutic plan elaborated by the specialist.
Advantages of exosome therapy:
- The entire process occurs on an outpatient basis.
- It is not invasive, nor does it require anesthesia.
- It does not require previous preparations or a long period of inactivity for recovery.
- As it is a substance identical to the biological ones, it does not generate adverse reactions.
However, after treatment, it is necessary to avoid anti-inflammatory drugs, high-impact activities, or cardiovascular exercise for at least the first two weeks.
The results of the therapy depend on the patient’s age, condition, and severity of the condition. As we age our body deteriorates and responds slowly to signals from the cells, therefore in some cases the results are not immediate and several sessions may be necessary to achieve a noticeable improvement.
Where can I receive treatment with exosomes?
Currently, regenerative medicine is already being applied in different parts of the world.
In some places, the intervention and any other regenerative medicine procedure are certainly more cost-effective.
At Cellular Hope Institute we perform exosome and stem cell therapy in Cancun, Mexico. One of the most affordable and cost-effective locations for patients.
