Get answers to some of the most commonly asked questions about cellular therapy from the BrioMD team.
Capillary perivascular cells are a unique set of naturally occurring cells within your body. They occur in all tissues of the body anywhere there are blood vessels. They can develop into more specialized cells to repair, regenerate and reduce inflammation in case of injury, disease or other health conditions.
The primary function of your capillary perivascular cells is to provide reparative support of blood vessels and the tissues that contain blood vessels. They repair, regenerate and reduce inflammation of your damaged tissue when there is injury, disease or other health-related conditions. When your body’s reserve is limited, its ability to regenerate healthy cells decreases and limits your recovery. By helping your body to repair and regenerate cells and reduce inflammation, these cells increase your ability to recover from various inflammatory conditions.
Yes, there is a percentage of stem cells in capillary perivascular cells along with many other types of cells the body uses for healing. There are two primary kinds of stem cells on the market today: embryonic stem cells and non-embryonic “adult” stem cells. Most people are familiar with embryonic stem cells. BrioMD does not target nor use embryonic stem cells.
Instead, we target perivascular fraction which contains NON-EMBRIONIC "ADULT" STEM CELLS. These are undifferentiated cells found throughout the body around tiny vessels which can renew and differentiate into bone and cartilage, as well as other mesodermal elements, such as fat, connective tissue, blood vessels, and muscle. BrioMD only uses cells separated from perivascular fraction from a patient’s abdominal, low back or thigh area.
There are no known risks involved in the BrioMD therapy process. Capillary perivascular cells or “healing cells” are found throughout your body – Unlike most other available treatment options, we do not alter cells in any way and do not add any drugs, enzymes or growth factors. Adhering to the strictest safety standards set forth by the FDA, our advanced patented process concentrates cells from your perivascular fraction. This patented process yields a much greater number and concentration of cells to use for treatment that has been reported without the use of enzymes, drugs , or cultures.
BrioMD has developed a full procedural release/consent form which will detail all possible complications associated with the harvest procedure.
BrioMD through its laboratory partner has an FDA registered and inspected lab adhereing to the strictest standards set forth by the FDA. The lab also adheres to Good Tissue Practices and has a full-time Quality Assurance Director and Liaison to ensure compliance with the FDA.
At BrioMD our mission is to provide the most advanced cellular therapy, in the safest manner with the highest cell count without using any drugs, enzymes or growth factors to help our patients improve their quality of life. In short, we want to help our patient start living again through cellular therapy.
BrioMD has assembled a group of forward thinking and innovative scientists, clinicians, and researchers to develop the safest, most effective treatment option for cellular therapy without using any enzymes or growth factors. As leaders in perivascular cellular therapy, we set the highest standards and are dedicated to achieve maximum results to the patient. We are also committed to research and data analytics to evolve and improve our results. Our technology is the most advanced process in the world today for perivascular fraction processing and treatment. We have developed, over years of research, the preferred protocols for the administration of cell therapy for the conditions we treat.
We are very different from our competitors in many ways. Our process yields the highest number of cells compared to any other company without using any enzymes or other additives. We also provide the safest and least painful harvesting process.
Unlike all other available treatment options, we do not alter your cells in any way and do not add any drugs, enzymes or growth factors. Our patented process separates cells from your perivascular fraction so your healing cells can work to repair your damaged cells. This process yields a much greater number and concentration of cells to use for treatment – more than any other process or procedure available today.
Obtaining your capillary perivascular cells is a minimally-invasive 60-minute procedure. Once the FDA registered lab processes and concentrates your cells, your physician will begin your customized therapy ..

BrioMD is continually working on treatment options and protocols for conditions and diseases not listed on the website. For more information, please call your local treatment center to schedule an appointment to discuss your medical conditions and questions.
No, BrioMD does not treat cancer. Many people are confused by this because they have heard of cancer patients receiving “stem cell transplants.” These patients had ablative bone marrow therapy and need stem cells to re-populate their blood and marrow. BrioMD does not use or extract stem cells from bone marrow. We use capillary perivascular cells obtained from an area of your abdomen, low back or thigh area.
Cancer treatment is of great interest to BrioMD. We are currently working with leading physicians to develop treatment options/protocols with the goal of being able to successfully treat certain conditions of interest.
Capillary Perivascular cell therapy is thought to be safe and does not affect dormant cancers. If someone has had cancer that was treated and responded successfully, there is no known reason to withhold cellular therapy. In these cases, contact and visit your local treatment center and they can help determine your options.
All of the conditions/diseases currently being treated by BrioMD are currently listed HERE. Each patient must be evaluated by a trained BrioMD physician at your local treatment center to determine your treatment options.
After an initial clinical evaluation by a trained BrioMD physician at your local BrioMD treatment center, treatment options can be determined and schedules accordingly.
Our process is minimally-invasive and relatively pain-free. Click Here to read more about the process.
You possibly will experience some minor discomfort and bruising associated with the harvest procedure to obtain your perivascular fraction. The treatment itself should be pain-free.
Once your perivascular fraction is harvested, the perivascular fraction is then processed at a FDA registered an inspected lab, where we concentrate your cells using our advanced patented process.

Expect to spend a total of 2-3 hours from the time you arrive until the time you leave.
Your treatment will be supervised by a board-certified physician in anesthesia, pain management, neurology, or orthopedics. All of the physicians in the BrioMD network have been specifically trained in the protocols formulated by BrioMD’s Medical Advisory Board.
Yes, BrioMD can store your treatment cells for additional treatments or future use for up to one year at no additional cost at our state-of-the-art cryo-storage center. If needed, you will be counseled regarding options for long-term storage after one year.
Your physician will discuss your results with you on an individual basis.
Depending on your condition, treatment may provide:
Unless your physician determines that a follow-up treatment will be needed, there is no need for any follow-up appointments. You will be encouraged to follow up with your primary care provider at intervals that will be specified according to your condition. A representative will contact you for follow up and to collect data in a continued effort to optimize treatment protocols.
One of our clinicians will walk you through a post-procedure document at the time of your treatment.
You can return to your normal activity within 3 days after treatment.
BrioMD is currently working with insurance providers to have this treatment covered. At present, the treatment is not covered, but remains affordable or available via financing options.
Please contact your local BrioMD Treatment center to learn about therapy costs and time expected with associated treatment program.
