100% (SVF) STEM CELL THERAPY There are no nerves and blood vessels in the articular cartilage, and thus, self-repair is impossible. Therefore, previously there were no permanent treatments administered in particularly loss of fluid in the joints which enable joint movements. However, today it is possible to treat the joints and surrounding tissues with stem cell therapy.
Stem cells are the main cells located around the vessels in all human tissues. These cells are activated in case of a tissue damage, and while they excrete growth factors requiredfor tissue repair on one hand, they may transform into various tissues such as muscles, bones, articular cartilages and fats required for recovery on the other. They act as a part of body’s response to healing and repair.
Stem cells were attempted to be obtained from bone marrow and blood in the past. However, it is discovered that stem cells are found in the human fatty tissue 50 times more than the bone marrow, and today, it is possible to obtain stem cells in the amount enough to repair joints from 200cc (one water glass) fat.
BThus, it is now possible to treat the joints. The treatment area will be cured at once since the obtained stem cells are capable of transforming into many tissues such as joints, bones, muscles, etc.
Basically there are 2 different types of stem cells used in locomotor system diseases.
Stem cell suspension obtained from the fatty tissue is called SVF. It may transform in 200 various tissues of our body thanks to its complex cell union content. SVFstem cells repair all the tissues in the treatment area which require repair by carrying oxygen and nutrients to the injection site.
Approximately 200 cc (one full glass) of fat will be collected from abdominal fats under local anesthesia. This fat will be submitted to stem cell laboratory. Your 100% stem cells will be separated. Subsequently, these cells will be injected to the site to be treated (knee joint, hip joint, etc.).
Your fats submitted to the stem cell laboratory in cold chain will be processed and separated by expert biologists and bioengineers using GMP standards (good manufacturing practices).Your SVF stem cells will be subjected to required quality control tests, and subsequently boxed in a sterile manner and delivered to the patient in cold chain. This isolation and quality control procedures shall not be mixed with stem cell harvesting procedures with unknown efficiency, quality, and safety in clinic / hospital environments or using automatic instruments.
SVF STEM CELL returns the teared or calcified site to its original state by creating new tissues, and moreover, cures all other damaged tissues in the process.
Just like in all tissue recovery, the recovery time will be 3-6 months depending on the age and injury of the patien.
It is possible to say if there are 1-5 stem cells in methods such as PRP-CGF, there will be 200.000 – 500.000 stem cells in SVF stem cell therapy.
Hospitalization is not required for SVFSTEM CELL therapy.Fat collection procedure under local anesthesia takes about half an hour, and you may return to your daily routine afterwards.The collected fats will be transferred to stem cell laboratory in cold chain.Your 100% separated stem cells will return from the laboratory the next day, and injected to the affected site.
Yes, SVF stem cell therapy is a method approved by both Ministry of Health and FDA (US Food & Drug Administration).
