Conditions Treated with Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cells regenerate the body at the cellular level. When given intravenously, they are dispersed to the whole body and therefore the possibility of benefits can be endless. Stem cells harvested from adult bone marrow or adipose (fat) tissue can be utilized to treat multiple conditions including, COPD, autoimmune disease such as Crohn’s, psoriasis, and eczema, as well as heart disease and osteoarthritis.
How is Stem Cell Therapy Administered?
Utilizing sterile techniques, about 100cc of adipose (fat) tissue is harvested from the patient under local anesthesia. Stem cells are then harvested from the fat. Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is prepared from the patient’s blood as well. PRP is like food for the stem cell and enhances its function. The stem cell and PRP are combined together and administered to the patient through one or more of the following modalities:
Intravenous – for systemic problems
Local – for joints and skin problems
Nebulizer – for lung problem
