Autologous Adipose-Derived Adult Stem Cell Therapy
StemGenex Medical Group provides adipose-derived autologous stem cell therapy, where the stem cells come from the patient’s own body. We utilize state-of-the-art technology, cementing our position as an industry leader of autologous adipose stem cell therapy.
Stem Cell Procedure
The stem cell therapy is an outpatient procedure performed by board certified physicians and a full clinical and nursing staff. Patients will be treated with twilight anesthesia. The total procedure time is approximately 4-5 hours.
- Harvest: Using a liposuction procedure, 100-200cc of adipose tissue is harvested from the patient.
- Separate: Using advanced protocols, the Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF) which contains Adult Stem Cells (ASCs) is separated from the fat cells.
- Isolate: Adult Stem Cells and other progenitor cells are then isolated from the SVF using advanced multi-filtration protocols.
- Activate: The isolated adult stem cells are added in the person’s own platelet rich plasma (PRP) and activated with a low light laser.
- Infuse: The activated stem cells cells are then administered via full body IV and through additional customized administrations.
The advantages of adipose stem cell therapy, compared with other sources of regenerative cells, are:
- Adipose stem cell yields are much higher than most sources. It is not unusual to obtain hundreds of millions of dormant stem cells from 120-200cc’s. In comparison, the same amount of bone marrow may only yield tens of thousands of cells.
- Patients receive their own cells so there is no risk of immune rejection.
- Mesenchymal stem cells have been proven to differentiate and proliferate into many types of cells. Some patients have reported immediate symptom relief.
- Autologous stem cell therapy is a minimally invasive procedure with little to no down time.
How do the stem cells work?
- Stem Cells are infused into the bloodstream and injected into localized tissues.
- The stem cells are attracted to signals from areas of inflammation.
- Distressed signals trigger stem cells to differentiate.
- Differentiating cells begin to integrate with target tissues or organs.
