Welcome to Pittsburgh Stem Cell
I am the medical director of the Pittsburgh Stem Cell Ctr. I have been practicing in Pennsylvania for 32 years and there I’ve completed a fellowship in stem cell therapies.
The human body is designed to heal itself. This healing takes place through the action of our own autologous stem cells. There’s a constant production of stem cells from our body to make up for the cells lost each day.
Autologous mesenchymal stem cells can be obtained from our own body and transplanted into places where they are needed to assist with healing and inflammation. There are two sources from which the stem cells can be obtained. One is in the bone marrow. This source has been used for decades and produces a higher concentration of blood producing stem cells. The second source is the adipose fatty tissue under the skin. The adipose tissue is a preferred source for obtaining the autologous mesenchymal stem cells. The reason is that the concentration of stem cells is 2000 times higher than in the bone marrow.
After the mesenchymal stem cells have been obtained or harvested they can be moved and transplanted into an area that has inflammation or damage. In this way, we can precisely direct the body’s natural healing processes.
Using this non-invasive technique, we can speed healing and improve the quality of life without the use of surgery, dangerous biologic agents or opiate pain medication.
