Stem Cell treatments are replacing traditional orthopaedic surgeries in many cases. Once a trained medical doctor determines you are a viable candidate for treatment, it is quite simple. One injection into the area is typically all that is needed. No anesthesia is used, so the risk associated with anesthesia is completely eliminated. There is no down time, and no repeat visits to the doctor or hospital.
STEP 1: MEET AND GREET
You made an important decision to investigate stem cell therapy. Stem Cell treatments are replacing traditional orthopaedic surgeries in many cases. Once a trained medical doctor determines you are a viable candidate for treatment, it is quite simple.
STEP 2: LOCAL ANESTHETIC
Using local anesthesia, stem cells are obtained from a “mini” liposuction-type procedure, isolating the stem cells from the patient’s own fat. The harvested fat (less than 50cc) is then broken down into stromal vascular fraction (SVF) through a specially designed deployment protocol.
STEP 3: PREPARATION
After harvesting the fat cells, the next step is to isolate the cells. This is accomplished by seperating the fat cells and stem cells. The process used by PA Stem Cell Centers yields extremely high numbers of stem cells.
STEP 4: DEPLOYMENT
Depending on the type of deployment required, stem cells can be injected through veins, arteries, into
spinal fluid, subcutaneously, or directly into joints or organs. All of these are considered minimally invasive methods of introducing the stem cells. In the right environment, these stem cells can change (differentiate) into bone, cartilage, muscle, fat, collagen, neural tissue, blood vessels, and even some organs. Because it is your own DNA material, there is no rejection. The whole process takes less than three hours.
