All About Adipose Stem Cell Procedures

Stem cell therapy is a rapidly evolving and growing area of modern medicine that has made headlines more than ever lately. Many people are interested in the potential healing and regenerative properties of these incredible cells produced by the body.

How Does Stem Cell Therapy Work?

Stem cells are incredibly complex and valuable cells that are capable of regenerating and differentiating into many other types of specialized cells. When these cells are extracted and injected into a problem area, they follow inflammatory signals from damaged tissues and stimulate the body's natural healing process.

How Is an Adipose Stem Cell Procedure Performed?

During an adipose stem cell procedure, Dr. Foster removes fat from the patient's own love handle area using liposuction. The extraction is then spun in a centrifuge to extract the highest concentration of stem cells possible.

Then, the stem cells are injected into the problem area or areas along with being administered through an IV into the arm. For those with back or neck pain, the stem cells can be injected using an image-guided process during an MRI.

Why Adipose Stem Cell Procedures Are the Best Choice

One of the reasons Dr. Foster exclusively uses adipose stem cells in his stem cell therapy treatments is that they are much easier to harvest than other types of stem cells, which results in a less invasive and less painful procedure for the patient. In addition, there is no ethical or moral concerns when it comes to adipose stem cell procedures. Lastly, more stem cells per unit volume can be harvested with this type of stem cell procedure.

For many patients, a stem cell therapy procedure can be completed from start to finish in just one appointment. If you're interested in learning more or would like to schedule an appointment, please call us today at 760-674-2070.
