Fat Derived (Adipose Derived) Mesenchymal Cell Injections

Retrieval system for Stem Cell Injections

Medicinal signaling cells and the field of  tissue engineering for regenerative effects offer a range of potential benefits and revolutionary treatments for conditions as wide-ranging as arthritis and cancer. Though there’s still much to learn about the way stem cells work, typical supportive medicinal signaling cell therapy carries little risk. At Piedmont Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation regenerative treatments like volume enhancing cell injection from your own fat bypasses any health risks that may arise from third parties and obviates any ethical questions raised by harvesting cells from other sources.

Dr. Schwartz and Dr. Terzella have elected to provide patients in Greenville, SC with the option to add a regenerative boost to your natural healing system by utilizing newly available technology from Alma Lasers. Effective for both pain management and body sculpting, Piedmont PMR offers safe, simple treatments with versatile applications.

Learn About Laser Liposuction

Beautifill is an evolutionary advancement in how fat cells are harvested during liposuction. By combining the best in aesthetics technology for tumescence (preparing your body for the liposuction harvest) and Alma’s Laser assisted cannulas for liposuction, a 95% viability rate can be achieved.  That means your cells are kept alive during the procedure, enhancing the likelihood of the graft taking hold once placed in its new home.

Fat cell liposuction donor sites frequently include the abdominal wall, the buttock, and the love handles. This also means that with the expertise offered at Piedmont PMR, you can simultaneously undergo body sculpting while stem cells are being harvested. One procedure; Twice the benefit.  Look better, feel better, and move better.

In addition, Drs. Schwartz and Terzella, always provide PRP (platelet rich plasma) injections as part of any mesenchymal adipose (fat) stem cell graft. PRP helps to ensure that your stem cells are activated once graftefd into their new location.  Naturally, the goal is new tissue and less pain.  Nutritional support may be offered as well to help you get the very best result possible.

There is no need to consider artificial fillers for cell therapy injection when you can rely on your body’s natural system.

While your body has remarkable repair and regeneration powers, sometimes it can’t keep up, because the raw materials needed can be limited.  Aging happens.  Just as you would need a certain amount of wood to build a fence, your body needs an adequate supply of healing components to repair itself.

The good news is that medicinal signaling cells exist throughout your body, waiting for a time when they’re needed to help you heal. They’ll stay dormant until signaled into action, when they’re “recruited” by your body into the repair process.  That’s where we come in.  We harvest those cells and then help to turn them “on”.

Everything is always better when it is your own.   With the Alma Laser Beautifll procedure the job of harvesting, and keeping your own cells alive, has been studied both scientifically and through years of clinical practice to provide you with the best possible outcome.

Stem Cell Therapy

Stem cells are distinguished from other cell types by three important characteristics. First, they are unspecialized, second, they are capable of renewing themselves through cell division, sometimes after long periods of inactivity and third, when a stem cell divides, each new cell has the potential either to remain a stem cell or become another type of cell with a more specialized function

Stem Cell Therapy seeks to boost the efficiency of the natural healing process by delivering more of the blood factors that enable stem cell recruitment. With autologous medicinal signaling cells therapy the objective is to facilitate you body’s own repair process while providing tissue support and cushioning.  The “eureka” day often occurs at 21 days. While the wound healing response usually peaks by 30 days, Dr’s Schwartz and Terzella will work with you over the next 6 months to make sure you get the best possible outcome.

While there can be post procedural pain most people only require 1-3 days of Tylenol. Many take nothing at all. At Piedmont Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, PA we offer a full line of regenerative medicine treatments including proliferative injections, PRP, and Stem Cell harvesting followed by implantation. We view each patient individually and strive to use the right intervention for the right patient at the right time.

Treatment targets

While regenerative medicinal signaling cell injections haven’t yet reached the point where they can completely reverse the damage caused by diseases such as arthritis, many patients find significant relief from pain associated with degenerative diseases, especially in joint pain treatment. Since adipose derived cell therapy uses no medications, it can reduce or eliminate the dangers presented by corticosteroids or opioid pain relievers.  Fat grafting for tissue engineering  can help to treat pain associated with arthritis and tissue tears in your:

  • Elbows
  • Spine
  • Knees
  • Hips
  • Hands
  • Wrists
  • Feet
  • Ankles
  • Shoulders

This is just the beginning of the potential benefits of medicinal signaling cells. The field of regenerative medicine expands daily, spurred on by both its safety and potential.
