Adult stem cell therapy is the process of isolating the stem and regenerative cells found in patients’ own body fat and re-introducing them into damaged zones of the body and/or systemically to address underlying factors of chronic, degenerative disease. Through minimally invasive adult stem cell therapy, the body’s own natural healing capabilities are put to work for each patient.
Autologous Adult Stem Cell Therapy
Adult stem and regenerative cells are naturally abundant in our fat, skin, liver, teeth, bone marrow and other tissues. These have some remarkable attributes:
- They respond to inflammatory signals when tissue damage occurs
- They travel to the injured area and begin to assess the damage
- They help repair/replace injured tissues and organs
In other words, adult stem cells can differentiate (turn into) skin, bone and cartilage, in addition to secreting other beneficial growth and repair factors which can “turn on” the body’s native ability to repair itself.
The adult stem and regenerative cells which reside in body fat have become a very important research focus for scientists and doctors in recent years. Along with a number of other benefits to using body fat as a source of therapeutic cells, Okyanos doctors are able to gain access to Adipose-Derived Stem and Regenerative Cells (ADRCs) in a safe and minimally-invasive way utilizing a modified water-assisted liposuction.
