The benefits of cord blood banking

Your child’s umbilical cord cells are powerful, versatile and full of life-saving potential. These young cells haven’t been exposed to disease – meaning they can replace older, damaged cells and boost recovery time. Cord blood banking protects your family from dangerous conditions, including immune disorders, blood defects and several forms of cancer.

    Cord blood therapy boosts the body’s immune system, increases healthy blood count and guards against infection.

  • 2

    Umbilical cord cells adjust to each patient’s system, improving treatment options and chances for a successful transplant.
