Stem cell therapy, also known as regenerative medicine, has become a very exciting and promising field in treating a variety of conditions. The research was initially based on embryonic stem cells, which was mired in controversy.
In our clinics, we use adult stem cells derived from patients’ own adipose tissue, bone marrow, or peripheral blood. As a self repair mechanism, living organisms have stem cells that are attracted to the sites of injury. Chronic injury, combined with aging, could exhaust our stem cells' reparative capacity and diminish the number of available stem cells.
The purpose of transplanting a large number of cells intravenously is to allow them to be attracted to the sites of injury and disease. Stem cells are magnificent, in the sense that they are undifferentiated cells that have the capability to differentiate into any kind of cells required by the body. This includes neurons, joint cartilage, heart muscle, and much more.
