What is Cord Tissue?

Cord tissue refers to the umbilical cord itself. Traditionally, it was discarded as medical waste after the baby is born. But now, we know that cord tissue is a rich source of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs).

MSCs have different capabilities than the hematopoietic stem cells from cord blood. They can rapidly divide and regenerate a variety of different cell types in our bodies, like muscles, nerves and cartilage.

What is Cord Tissue Banking?

Cord tissue banking involves collecting, processing and cryogenically preserving mesenchymal stem cells from the umbilical cord.

We now offer expectant parents the option of banking both cord blood and cord tissue for their newborn.

Your choice to preserve newborn stem cells can benefit your entire family.

Extend your reach by banking both cord blood and cord tissue stem cells 

By preserving both cord blood and cord tissue you will secure for your baby access to two different types of stem cells in the future.

Clinical trials are exploring the use of mesenchymal stem cells from cord tissue to treat some of the most prevalent diseases of the 21st century such as arthritis, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes and heart disease.

We are expecting our third child and our whole family is getting ready for our baby to arrive. We banked cord blood for our first two children with Healthcord and will do the same for this baby. We want to do everything we could for our children, and like to think of it as “insurance” in case our children ever need it.”
