Why Adipose Stem Cell Therapy?
Stem cells harvested from fat cells for treatment contain a high amount of mesenchymal stem cells and doctors are able to harvest larger volumes for therapeutic treatment purposes when compared to other harvesting sites. Mesenchymal stem cells are reserved adult stem cells that help facilitate the regeneration of tissue naturally in the body. They are an integral part of wound healing, regulation of aging, and stabilizing vital organs. These mesenchymal stem cells are considered to be “raw potential” meaning they can differentiate into the tissue cells needed in a specific area. These mesenchymal stem cells have the potential to repair damaged cartilage, bone, tendons, muscle, skin, and connective cell tissue.
When adipose-derived stem cells (ADSCs) are injected into an affected area, the inflammation in the body triggers the transformational property of the stem cells, and they start to work to repair and replace the damaged tissue. These cells incorporate themselves into the damaged area and immediately begin to improve the stability of the tissue and reduce any pain being caused by the damage. ADSCs have been integral in advancing treatments for degenerations in the bones and joints, damaged cartilage in joints, labral and labrum tears, meniscus tears, osteoarthritis, tendinosis and a wide range of other ailments. Adipose-Derived Stem Cell Therapy uses the natural renewing functions of stem cells in our bodies as a concentrated treatment that can be focused in a targeted area to achieve optimal healing results.
What Happens During Adipose Stem Cell Treatment?
Adipose Stem Cell therapy is favored among both patients and doctors because compared to other methods the retrieval of the cells is easier and less painful. Also, because adipose cells have a higher yield of mesenchymal stem cells, harvesting stem cells from fat cells gives you a higher concentration of regenerative cells for your treatment. Using a local anesthetic, your doctor will take a sample of fat tissue from your waist (muffin top area) or lower abdomen. This process is usually painless, but some patients experience slight, minimal discomfort when being administered the anesthetic. Once the cells have been collected the sample is processed in a lab to separate the stem cells. The isolated ADSCs are combined with your platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and injected back into your body.
This minimally invasive procedure can be completed in one day offering patients an effective treatment with a low impact on their normal life. Many patients return to work on the same or next day of treatment. Extracting adipose cells is a virtually painless process, compared to other methods, which gets patients to the results they need, faster.
Is Adipose-Derived Stem Cell Treatment Safe for Patients in Cincinnati?
Adipose-Derived Stem Cell Therapy is an autologous treatment meaning, the stem cells being used are from your own body. Autologous treatments eliminate the potential for your immune system to reject the cells and also eliminates the potential for disease transmission. These are your own cells, concentrated and injected to perform the duties they were naturally created to execute. Adipose Stem Cell Therapy is minimally invasive leaving a narrow margin for complications and adverse reactions. Patients benefit from this procedure because it is administered under the care of your doctor in a controlled environment in a same-day process.
Will I Get Results?
On average, many patients experience full healing as soon as four to six weeks from the treatment. There is no need for time off of work for a lengthy recovery period like with invasive surgery, and many patients return to work on the same day of their procedure. Your doctor will work with you to get you back to your normal physical activity routine within a week to make sure your body has the maximum opportunity to heal correctly.
