Share Article

Eterna MD announces its new branch of Regenerative Medicine using stem cells from a patient's own fat. The stem cells can be used for cosmetic surgery, orthopedic and potentially for degenerative disease's. Their state-of-the-art, onsite facility is the only one in Central Florida and will allow physicians to send over fat for processing, that they can then use at their discretion to treat their patients.

Our main focus is tissue repair and regeneration using people’s own fat using the less invasive procedures, providing a very natural look and attacking the root of the aging process

EternaMD, Medical Rejuvenation Center, announces the opening of its new division under the name of “REGENERATIVE MEDICINE”. The concept relates to the use of tissue repair. The Regenerative Medicine branch will use new technology, using SVF ( Stromal Vascular Fraction) obtained from the patient’s own fat. This new technology uses ultrasound cavitation technology. “The process is simple and clean and uses no enzymes for the breakdown of the fat” said Dr Mercado. With this new addition, ETERNA MD, will offer in a 50 mile radius, the ability to supply the doctors in the community the adult-stem cells derived from the patient’s own fat. This technology is innovative and can be applied to cosmetic and orthopedic use. The process is very simple and includes performing a mini-liposuction to harvest the fat, fat processing, and acquisition of the SVF (Stromal Vascular Fraction) that is reached on adult stem cells. The Fat processing center is located on site.

The new branch of Regenerative Medicine will offer a learning opportunity for physicians and health care providers to train on adult stem cells from fat and cosmetic procedures. Dr. Mercado and Dr. De La Vega, originally from Colombia and trained in cosmetic surgery, are bringing the latest treatments such as the Stem Cell Face lift to Central Florida among others.” Our main focus is tissue repair and regeneration using people’s own fat using the less invasive procedures, providing a very natural look and attacking the root of the aging process”, says Dr De La Vega. Also they are very excited to work with the medical community in the Central Florida in order to share the intellectual developments that are happening in Europe and South America. Dr Mercado and Dr De La Vega had developed a new concept for delivery of fat and stem cells for cosmetic procedures. Their patients call it the “Stem Cell Gun”. The objective of this device is to deliver the exact amounts of fat on areas that symmetry wants to be improved such as the face. Dr Mercado said that in one day a patient can have water-assisted “Colombian style liposuction” as their patients call it, a stem cell face lift with no incisions, neck lines and chest lines injected with stem cells, buttock augmentation with fat and stem cells in less than 5 hours and be able to return to normal activities in a few days. Dr Mercado said that the entire liposuction and stem cell face lift all are done with the patient awake.

Overall, ETERNAMD, with it’s new branch of Regenerative Medicine will be at the frontier in Central Florida to bring the newest developments on adult stem cells to repair tissue. Eterna MD will be holding an open house which will be open to the media and public on Thursday Septmeber 22, 2011 from 3-7pm and will be having a Stem Cell Face Lift Seminar on Saturday September 24, 2011 at 10:30 am at the Hyatt Place in Lake Mary Fl.
