What is an Autologous Adipose Stem Cell Procedure?
A small sample of Adipose tissue (fat) is removed from above the Superior Iliac spine (love handles) or abdomen under a local anesthetic.
Obtaining Adipose-Derived Stem Cells (ADSCs) is much easier and less invasive than performing a bone marrow extraction. In addition, adipose tissue contains much larger volumes of mesenchymal stem cells than does bone marrow. We use the patient's own adipose tissue to extract the stem cells. Autologous means that the donor and the recipient are the same person.

Advantages of Adipose Stem Cell Therapy
Procedure is completed the same day, using less than minimally manipulated methods.
High Yield: A high dose of Stem Cells can be obtained in just a couple of hours.
Mesenchymal Stem Cell yields from peripheral fat are much higher than from bone marrow.
Patients receive their own autologous cells, so there is a very low risk of immune rejection.
A minimally invasive outpatient procedure makes it easier to harvest from fat than bone marrow and is more comfortable for the patient.
Adipose- Derived Stem Cells with Platelet Rich Plasma
The Procedure is safe because the Adipose Tissue is removed form one's own body via a sterile technique and remains in a control environment.
A HOLISTIC APPROACH TO YOUR HEALTH AND WELLNESS
What can you expect during the Procedure
Consultation- Each patient is evaluated by the Doctor prior to treatment, patients desires and outcomes are discussed.
Harvest- Under the use of a local anesthetic a sample of Adipose tissue is collected from the patient.
Stem Cells- Our laboratory staff will isolate the adult stem cells and other progenitor cells in a sterile environment from the collected sample. The cells are not exposed to air particles and contaminants.
Injections- The Cells are administered to the patient, into the localized area.
