At OC Advanced Stem Cell Treatment Center we are devoted to advancing access and quality care in the area of adult stem cell regenerative medicine in order to help people suffering from a variety of inflammatory and degenerative conditions.
“I became interested in Stem-cell therapy due to an illness in my family, we ended up traveling overseas for what would be a very expensive bone marrow stem cell treatment. When I heard about this new technique I wanted to learn more.”
-Ricardo Davalos, MD
The Center uses a fat transfer surgical technology to isolate the patient’s own stem cells from a small quantity of fat harvested by liposuction. That same day, these cells are deployed back into the patient via injection or intravenous infusion. The source of the cells is actually stromal vascular fraction (SVF), a protein-rich segment of processed adipose, or fat, tissue that contains autologous mesenchymal stem cells, along with macrophage, endothelial, and red blood cells plus growth factors that “turn on” the stem cells and promote their activity.
Advancing the growing body of stem cell research and the field of regenerative medicine is part of the OC Advanced Stem Cell Treatment Center’s mission, and we’ve teamed up with a network of physicians to study and share outcomes on the investigational use of autologous adult stem cells for degenerative conditions. This organization employs a clinical research coordinator to organize and process our data with the ultimate goal of perfecting protocols and ultimately teaching them to other physicians around the world.
Adipose-Derived Stromal Vascular Fraction
Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF) is a component of the lipoaspirate obtained from liposuction of excess adipose tissue. Lipoaspirate, the waste product of liposuction (cosmetic surgery), contains a large population of stem cells called adipose derived stem cells (ADSCs), which share a number of similarities with bone marrow stem cells, including the capacity for multilineage differentiation. Autologous SVFs containing ADSCs are currently being used in clinical settings for various orthopedic applications for human patients without any serious side effects.
Fat harvesting: While the patient is under local anesthesia, doctors perform a mini-liposuction and remove fat tissue from the waist, hip or side of the body.
Cell preparation: The fat is spun in a centrifuge to separate stem cells from the tissue.
Stem cell treatment: The stem cells are returned to the patient’s body through an intravenous infusion or an injection directly into the joints, tendons or ligaments. Depending on the condition, other deployment processes can be done.
