Adipose Therapy in Dallas TX
Adipose (fat) cells contain mesenchymal stem cells. Mesenchymal stem cells are reserved adult stem cells that help facilitate the regeneration of tissue naturally in the body. They are an integral part of wound healing, regulation of aging, and stabilizing vital organs. It is thought that they can differentiate into the tissue cells needed in a specific area and that they have the potential to help facilitate the repair of damaged cartilage, bone, tendons, muscle, skin, and connective cell tissue.
It is thought that when regenerative cells are injected into an affected area, the inflammation in the body triggers the transformational property of the stem cells, and they start to work to help repair and replace the damaged tissue.
What Happens During Adipose Procedure?
Using a local anesthetic, your provider will take a sample of fat tissue from your buttock. This process is usually painless, but some patients experience slight, minimal discomfort when being administered the anesthetic. Once the cells have been collected the sample is centrifuged. (We follow the FDA’s strict guidelines for minimal manipulation; therefore, we do not use any enzymes or other substances to change your cells in ANY WAY.)
The Adipose derived stem cells are then combined with your platelet rich plasma (PRP) and injected into the affected joint.
This minimally invasive procedure can be completed in one day offering patients an effective therapy with a low impact on their normal life. Many patients return to normal activities within 2 weeks after the procedure.
Are Adipose-Derived Stem Cells Safe?
Adipose-Derived Stem Cell Therapy is an autologous therapy meaning, the cells being used are from your own body. Autologous procedures eliminate the potential for your immune system to reject the cells and also eliminates the potential for disease transmission. These are your own cells, concentrated and injected to perform the duties they were naturally created to execute. Adipose Therapy is minimally invasive leaving a narrow margin for complications and adverse reactions.
Will I Get Results?
On average, many patients experience relief as soon as six to twelve weeks from the procedure. As with any medical procedure there are no guarantees that this will work for you and each patients response will vary. Some patients may need to repeat the procedure months or years later. Your doctor will work with you to get you back to your normal physical activity routine as soon as possible to make sure your body has the maximum opportunity to heal correctly.
