The San Diego Stem Cell Treatment Center uses
adipose-(fat) derived stem cells for deployment and clinical research. Early stem cell research was associated with the controversial use of embryonic stem cells. The new focus is on non-embryonic adult mesenchymal stem cells, which are found in a person’s own blood, bone marrow, and fat. Most stem cell treatment centers in the world are currently using stem cells derived from bone marrow.
A recent technological breakthrough enables us to now use adipose-derived stem cells. Autologous stem cells from a person’s own fat are easy to harvest safely under local anesthesia and are thousands of times more abundant than in bone marrow.
Clinical success and favorable outcomes
appear to be related directly to the quantity of stem cells deployed. Once these adipose-derived stem cells are administered back into the patient, they have the potential to repair human tissue by forming new cells of mesenchymal origin, such as cartilage, bone, ligaments, tendons, nerve, fat, muscle, blood vessels, and certain internal organs. Stem cells’ ability to form these cell types makes them potentially highly effective in the treatment of musculoskeletal, neurological, cardiovascular, pulmonary, and other conditions, and they are used extensively in Europe and Asia to treat a broad range of disorders.
We have anecdotal and experimental evidence that stem cell therapy is effective in healing and regeneration. Stem cells seek out damaged tissues in order to repair the body naturally. There are many successful testimonials as to their benefits, but we are still awaiting definitive studies demonstrating efficacy of stem cell therapy. Such data may take five to ten years to accumulate. In an effort to provide relief for patients suffering from certain degenerative diseases that have been resistant to common modalities of treatment, we are initiating pilot studies as experimental tests of treatment effectiveness with very high numbers of adipose-derived stem cells obtained from fat. Adipose fat is an abundant and reliable source of stem cells.
The San Diego Stem Cell Treatment Center’s cell harvesting and isolation techniques
are based on technology from Korea. This new technological breakthrough allows patients to safely receive their own autologous stem cells in extremely large quantities. Our treatments and research are patient funded, and we have endeavored to make it affordable. All our sterile procedures are minimally invasive and done under local anesthesia. Patients who are looking for non-surgical alternatives to their degenerative disorders can request more information by contacting our office to determine if they are candidates.
San Diego Stem Cell Treatment Center is proud to be state of the art in the new field of Regenerative Medicine.
