Adult Stem Cells gathered by Liposuction to heal joints
John Beeman used to be a fan of skiing and this made him suffer due to a completely worn out knee. Now in the age of 61, John has a new opportunity of getting his knee back to life! What Beeman reports? “There’s something new and different happening in my knee and now I’m thinking I may not need a knee replacement at all,”
What this is all about? Its about regenerative medicine based on stem cells gathered with liposuction, which is definitely not a really popular technique! Its true that the percentage of stem cells among fat cells is 2500 higher comparing to bone narrow so liposuction is the ideal method of gathering them. The next part is to take advantage of these cells in order to repair/heal several parts of the body like knees or shoulders. Dr. Brandt is confident that this is the best option in order to treat serious diseases of humanity like arthritis. “This is the answer to arthritis and long term tendinitis. This is a great answer for that, but in this town knees and shoulders are our prime candidate,”! We are literally speaking about a self healing process. Instead of removing damaged tissues (like joints) the stem cells gathered by means of liposuction are inserted in the damaged area and gradually fix the damage.
As for the procedure Dr. Brand says: “The procedure takes about three hours. They are back doing most of their sports within a week or two”!
We will stay tuned for more developments regarding this breakthrough opportunity and will report as many news as possible regarding the regenerative features of Stem Cells.
