We are committed to stem cell research and the advancement of regenerative medicine and in providing care to patients with a wide variety of degenerative disorders using autologous adipose-derived adult stem cells.
Boca Raton, Florida (PRWEB) March 12, 2014
The Miami Stem Cell Treatment Center, PC, located in Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, and Boca Raton, Florida, offers a free public seminar on the use of stem cells for various degenerative and inflammatory conditions. They will be provided by Dr. Thomas A. Gionis, Surgeon-in-Chief, and, Dr. Nia Smyrniotis, Medical Director. The next upcoming seminar will be held on March 16th at the Comfort Suites Weston, 2201 N. Commerce Parkway, Weston, Florida 33326, at 2pm.
Regenerative Medicine: Our Procedure
The Miami Stem Cell Treatment Center uses Autologous Adult Adipose Stem Cells to provide care for patients suffering from chronic conditions that may benefit from adult stem cell-based regenerative medicine.
The Miami Stem Cell Treatment Center follows the regenerative medicine procedures developed by the California Stem Cell Treatment Centers (CSCTC) and Cell Surgical Network (CSN) which involves the initial screening, examination and evaluation of every potential candidate for stem cell investigational therapy by one of our physicians. Once a patient is deemed to be an appropriate candidate, the procedure itself is performed by our Surgeon-in-Chief, who is assisted by a team of experienced surgical team members and surgical technicians. The entire process from start to finish takes less than two hours. It is relatively painless, and recovery time is minimal.
In recent times, the bone marrow has been a source for stem cells. Taking bone marrow, however, is a painful procedure. Fat, however, contains many times more stem cells than bone marrow and is much easier and safer to harvest.
For many disease types such as cardiac pathology, adipose derived cells appear to be showing superiority to bone marrow derived cells. This may be related to the well documented fact that chronic disease causes bone marrow suppression. Fat derived cells are a natural choice for our investigational work considering their easy and rapid availability in extremely high numbers.
With our current technology, we can harvest your own fat cells, digest the fat cells and separate out the stem cells. The most significant advantage of using your fat as a source for the stem cells, is that the procedure can be done in the office in only a few hours, as the stem cells can be ready for injection after only 60 minutes of processing with our state of the art equipment. Your stem cells do NOT need to be sent out for processing – and – there is no need for you to travel outside of the U.S. to have them injected.
Indeed, adipose tissue is an abundant source of mesenchymal stem cells, which have shown promise in the field of regenerative medicine. Furthermore, these cells can be readily harvested in large numbers with low donor-site morbidity. During the past decade, numerous studies have provided pre-clinical data on the safety and efficacy of adipose-derived stem cells, supporting the use of these cells in clinical applications. Various clinical trials have shown the regenerative capability of adipose-derived stem cells in numerous fields of medicine. In addition, a great deal of knowledge concerning the harvesting, characterization, and culture of adipose-derived stem cells has been reported.
Our current areas of study include: Heart Failure, Emphysema, COPD, Asthma, Parkinson’s Disease, Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, and orthopedic joint injections. . The investigational protocols utilized by the Miami Stem Cell Treatment Center have been reviewed and approved by an IRB (Institutional Review Board) which is registered with the U.S. Department of Research Protections; and the study is registered with http://www.Clinicaltrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH).
