Okyanos Cell Therapy is the process of re-introducing your own stem cells (obtained from your body fat) into/around the damaged organs or areas of your body. Through minimally invasive adult stem cell therapy, we are able to put your body’s own natural healing capabilities to work for you.
Adult Stem Cells Exist Throughout Your Body
Adult stem 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 regenerate to become new skin, bone, cartilage and stimulate the growth of new blood vessels, among other capabilities.
The adult stem cells which reside in our body fat have become a very important research focus for scientists and doctors in recent years. We are able to gain access to these Adipose-Derived Stem and Regenerative Cells (ADRCs) through non-invasive liposuction, and most of us have at least a little extra fat to spare.
