Where do Stem Cells Come From?
Stem cells are the blank cells produced within the body that can accept the DNA from other cells and, in turn, produce those types of cells. Stem cells are produced throughout the body and can be found in almost all of the organs, including the heart, brain, kidneys, liver, skin, and lungs. The body produces stem cells as a way of regenerating the tissues. Our physicians work with autologous (your own) adipose-derived stem cells from a small quantity of fat harvested by liposuction on the same day. Under our IRB (Institutional Review Board)-approved protocol, we are able to provide fat derived stem cell procedures on an investigational basis. Doctors are finding that orthopedic stem cell injections are proving extremely beneficial when it comes to treating various types of joint conditions.
How Long Do Orthopedic Stem Cell Injections Take?
Procedures involving orthopedic stem cell injections take approximately 3 to 4 hours to complete. The first step in the procedure is harvesting the stem cells from the person's body. The stem cells and growth factors are concentrated and developed into a matrix that is then injected into the affected area. Before the orthopedic stem cell injections can be given, the patient must go through a thorough examination and evaluation to ensure they meet all of the protocols for the procedure. If they are a good match for the procedure, the doctor will harvest the stem cells that will be needed and begin the process.
How Do Stem Cells Work in the Body?
The stem cells and growth factors included in orthopedic stem cell injections work by regenerating the damaged tissues. The stem cells take on the DNA and characteristics of the damaged cells, allowing them to produce more of that particular type cell. The growth factors support the reproduction process providing the cells what they need to thrive and continue to replicate. As the replication process continues, the damaged cells begin to die off and are gradually replaced with new, healthier cells. When stem cell injections are used for orthopedic injuries, the stem cells are injected into the joint at the point of injury so the cells are closest to the tissues that need to be treated.
For What Conditions can Stem Cell Treatments be beneficial?
At the SF Institute, we offer treatments for painful joints, tendons, ligaments and inflammatory conditions associated with age-related degenerative changes in the joints.
Are There any Ethical Concerns Associated with Stem Cell Injections?
Here at the SF Institute, we do not use any embryonic stem cells. Autologous stem cells come from your own body’s natural stores of stem cell.
Use you own stem cells to treat joint pain.
