Stem Cell TreatmentTucson, AZ

Stem cell treatment is used to deal with a variety of illnesses. Stem cells are found in fat, bone marrow and many other tissues in the body. These cells are able to repair damaged tissues. The problem is, the bodies of those with degenerative diseases often do not make enough stem cells to keep up with the pace of the tissues being damaged.

Stem cell treatments involve the extraction, concentration and administration of these stems cells to areas where they are needed. Clinical trials have shown that the infusion of stem cells has a positive effect on those dealing with degenerative diseases.

What to expect when getting stem cell treatment

Stem cell treatments can be performed using the patient's stem cells or a donor's. The stem cells of an adult can be harvested from many parts of the body, like peripheral blood, fat or bone marrow. Once the cells have been extracted, the fluid is sent to a lab where it is assessed and purified. The purified stem cells are then injected into the patient.

Stem cells harvested from fat or bone marrow can morph into different types of cells, like liver, cartilage, heart or nerve cells. Studies indicate that stem cells can repair damaged tissues in many parts of the body.

The stem cells found in fat are basically restricted to a fixed part of the body, but studies show that they can also morph into different types of tissues and help suppress pathological immune system responses. Fat stem cells can be used to treat people dealing with rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, multiple sclerosis and many other diseases that target the immune system.

Bone marrow stem cells were the first type to be discovered. They were originally only used for bone marrow transplants as a treatment for people dealing with hematopoietic diseases or leukemia. Their use has been expanded to include treating diabetes, vascular disease, heart disease and many other serious conditions.
