What is stem cell therapy?

Stem cells are the body’s repair cells.  They have the ability to divide and differentiate into many different types of cells based on where they are needed throughout the body.  Stem cells can divide and turn into tissues such as skin, fat, muscle, bone, cartilage, and nerve to name a few.  They even possess the ability to replicate into organs such as the heart, liver, intestines, pancreas, etc.

What are the different types of stem cells?

There are two basic types of stem cells; embryonic and somatic (adult).
Embryonic stem cells are found in the placenta and embryo.  These cells are called totipotent, which means they have the ability to reproduce into any mature cell type.  While embryonic stem cells offer the greatest potential in healing, there are obviously moral and ethical concerns in harvesting these cells.  

The second type of stem cell is the adult stem cell.  These stem cells are called multipotent, which means they can differentiate into closely related cell lines, but they are not capable of creating a complete organ.  Adult stem cells are found in the bone marrow, adipose tissue (fat), skin, liver, blood vessels, and neurons.  Contrary to embryonic stem cells, there are no moral or ethical concerns in harvesting these cells, activating them, and reintroducing them back to the patient in areas where healing and regeneration is needed. 

So why do we take the cells from adipose (fat) tissue?

Adult stem cells are highly concentrated in the fat tissue.  There are 50 to 1,000 times more stem cells in the fat than the bone marrow.  At this concentration, it is no longer necessary to culture the stem cells to acquire the necessary cell numbers to make a healing impact.  The procedure to extract fat from the patient is much quicker and less invasive than a spay.  The stem cells are contained within a pool of cells in the fat termed the Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF).  The SVF may impart anti-inflammatory effects, add bioactive peptides, and contribute to reformation and architectural organization.  These are benefits lost once stem cells are cultured.
