Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF) therapy and Mesenchymal Cell (MC) Therapy uses a patient’s own stem cells to help repair damaged tissues and repair injuries. These therapies are part of the Regenerative medicine field that is rapidly growing. A few of the many things SVF and MC therapies are used for include reducing joint pain, increasing motion and flexibility, and treating tendon and ligament tears.
Everyone has stem cells in many areas of their body. Adult stem cells (also known as Somatic stem cells) are undifferentiated cells found throughout your body. In some adult tissues, such as bone marrow, fat, muscle and brain, discrete populations of adult stem cells generate replacements for other cells that are lost through normal wear and tear, injury or disease. They multiply to replenish dying cells and regenerate damaged tissues. Stem cells act as mother cells that have the potential to become any type of cell. Every organ and tissue in your body grew out of a cluster of stem cells early in development. They are the foundation cells and your own bank of self-healing. Scientific interest in adult stem cells is centred on their ability to divide or self-renew indefinitely and generate different cell types.
There are two types of stem cells therapies provided in clinics: Stromal Vascular Fraction therapy or Mesenchymal Cell Therapy.
