Stem cells are your body’s natural healing cells. They are recruited by chemical signals emitted by damaged tissues to repair and regenerate your damaged cells. Stem cells derived from your own tissues may well be the next major advancement in medicine. There is new technology available to produce a solution rich with your own stem cells. Under investigational protocols these can be deployed to treat a number of degenerative conditions and diseases.
Stem Cells have the potential to recognize tissue injury and repair injured cells. In the right environment, these stem cells can change into bone, cartilage, muscle, fat, collagen, neural tissue, blood vessels, and even some organs. Stem cells may also effect healing by secreting special chemical messengers that repair damaged tissue. Adult stem cells appear to be particularly effective in improving painful joints, repairing cartilage and ligaments, and even painful conditions along the spine. There are many clinical trials with stem cells going on right now. In one example, patients suffering from heart attacks have been given their own fat derived stem cells so they could speed up repair of the heart muscle and indeed, these patients have shown quicker healing compared to those not given real stem cells. Such studies have encouraged the use of stem cell deployments for ischemic and idiopathic cardiomyopathy. There have been reports of improvements with MS, Muscular Dystrophy, Parkinson’s, ALS, and stroke. Stem cells may be effective in the treatment of Macular Degeneration, Crohn’s Disease and numerous pulmonary conditions such as COPD, asthma, and fibrosis. Stem cells are now used for patients with kidney failure and in the treatment of critical limb ischemia. There are many common conditions that may benefit from stem cell therapy.
Stem cells can be derived from embryonic, bone marrow and fat. We specialize in the use of stem cells derived from fat. With our current technology, we can harvest your own fat cells under a local anesthetic, break down the collagen that binds the fat and stem cell and then separate out a solution rich in your own stems cells. The fat can be harvested from any area on your body that has an adequate fat supply, but we prefer to harvest it from the areas that will you have the best cosmetic result. A mini-liposuction is performed under local anesthesia and takes less than twenty minutes. The cells are then injected according to the most appropriate route and because it’s your own DNA Material, there can be no rejection. A solution rich with your tiny stem cells are administered through injection into tissues, joints or veins. The entire procedure takes less than two hours.
At this time the cost of experimental stem cell treatment is not covered by insurance companies. It is patient funded and there are no source of grants or pharmaceutical company funding.
