Stem Cell Treatment

What are stem cells, anyway?

Stem cells are the body’s main cells for repairing damaged tissue and reducing inflammation. They can divide and replenish cells that have been damaged by disease, injury, or normal wear and tear.

Stem cells are the body’s universal building blocks. Stem cells are like a troop of chameleon cells, they change and/or signal other cells to grow and proliferate around an area of inflammation and injury. In fact, they shouldn’t be called stem cells. They should be called “signaling cells”, or “regenerative cell.”

Stem cells have the ability to repair, regenerate and promote healing at the cellular level which can’t be recreated with traditional medications or surgical procedures.

Stem Cell Therapy

Stem cell therapy refers to any non-invasive procedure in which stem cells are harvested from one location on a body (one’s own body ) and then injected into another portion (typically a damaged portion) of a body to help it heal. Again, this involves adult stem cells.

Stem cells come from different areas. It depends on which of two stem cell types doctors use. First, there are stem cells from the bone marrow or one’s own fat tissues called adipose stem cells taken from the fat (in belly, love handles, or back). So a doctor will put a patient under local anesthesia and remove stem cells from his or her belly fat or bone marrow. They are then injected into the damaged body parts such as knee, hip, back, wrist, or elbow. The stem cells will then go to work, like little construction workers at a crash site.

Sometimes only one injection will suffice but many times additional regenerative treatments may be needed to aid in the healing process.
