What are stem cells?

Cells within the body that have the remarkable potential to divide and develop into different types of tissue cells which are termed as multipoint stem cells. Stem Cells serve as an internal repair system replenishing other cells throughout the body's life. Given their unique regenerative abilities, stem cells offer new potential for treating diseases such as osteoarthritis, chronic inflammation, acute muscle, bone, tendon, and nerve injuries. 

What types of Stem Cells work to regenerate tissue? 

Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSC) are cells that can differentiate into any cell in our bodies such as osteoblast (bone forming cells), tenocytes (tender forming cells), and chondrocytes (cartilage forming).

Where do you get stem cells?

The body stores MSCs throughout the body. High concentrations of MSC's can found in bone marrow. Bone marrow aspirate concentrate is a treatment option that allows for the safe and rapid harvest of your own stem cells. The concentration of these autologous cells can be relocated via an injection to the site injury.

Bone Marrow Concentrate 

Bone marrow concentrate (BMAC) is a rich source of stem cells, platelets, nucleated and progenitor cells. The system that we utilize (Angel BMAC System) is the only device that can concentrate bone marrow aspirate with adjustable cellular levels. 

You can store your stem cells for future uses also.  Learn how.
