What are Stem Cells and how can stem cells benefit me?
Stem cells are undifferentiated cells with the ability to regenerate and convert into differentiated cells, producing various types of tissues.Adult mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) can be found in a person’s blood, bone marrow, or adipose tissue (fat). Adipose fat tissue is an abundant source of stem cells. The best quality adipose cells are derived from the use of collagenase to breakdown the extracted fat. Autologous stem cells from a person’s own fat are easy to harvest safely under local anesthesia and on average produce quantities up to 2,500 times those seen in bone marrow. Bone marrow stem cell extractions are quite painful and carry a higher risk of infection.
