Stem Cell Therapy Tijuana Mexico
Stem Cell Therapy Tijuana Mexico is the leading certified stem cell treatment center in Mexico, pioneering stem cell treatments used all over the world. They care for patients from all ages and the most complex illnesses and health conditions for which conventional medicine as failed to help.
Adipose derived stem cells are obtained from a sample of human abdominal fat tissue. The cells themselves are not fat. They are encased in and surrounded by fat tissue. Once the fat sample has been obtained, a special enzyme is used to melt-away the fat, and leave only something called SVF (short for Stromal Vascular Fraction), which contains stem cells, accessory cells and growth factors. This method provides a much larger number of stem cells than bone marrow or peripheral blood, making it more efficient and highly effective in a variety of conditions, especially those that require creation of new blood vessels, and repairing tissues damaged due to lack of oxygenation. Unlike Fat, Bone marrow or other tissues that can be harvested for stem cell isolation, Wharton’s Jelly does not contain SVF. It is a gelatinous substance found in the umbilical chord, which separates maternal and fetal tissues, acting as a kind of buffer so that these tissues don’t come into direct contact with each other. This particular characteristic is the reason they became known as universal donor cells, since they are able to interact with any tissue, in any host, without causing any form of immune response.
Furthermore, the fact that they are obtained from umbilical chords, donated by pre-screened donors after their pregnancy has come to full-term, means that they are much easier to harvest, in much larger numbers, and without the need for a specific, invasive and painful procedure. It also means that because of the incredibly large number of cells that can be obtained, they can be cryo-preserved and stored at pre-determined dose sizes in individual containers for specific uses.
When using autologous cells you are limited to using only however many cells can be harvested from the patient at any given time, which in some cases may not be a large enough number to have a therapeutic impact on the condition to be treated. Donor cells also make the process easier, less expensive and faster, as well as much more pleasant for the patient, in that the cells are pre-selected and stored in ready-to-use doses, and don’t require a painful surgical procedure to obtain a sample, processing time for the tissue, cell isolation, preparation and then finally implantation. There is also no down-time or recovery time like there would be through a surgical harvesting of cells. This can vary quite a bit from one patient to another based on the specific condition, the severity of the condition, and the extent of damaged tissue that needs to be repaired.
Unlike medications, which need to reach a certain concentration in the blood to have a desired effect, which is lost as soon as that concentration decreases, stem cells will travel to damaged tissues (following chemical signals produced by damaged the damaged tissues themselves), and will set about recruiting other cells to aid in repair, and begin rebuilding the damaged tissue cell by cell, and in some cases, they will become a healthy form of that tissue in order to replace cells that are beyond repair.
Indeed, this process can take anywhere from a few weeks to several months, depending on the amount of tissue repair required, as well as each individual patients response to treatment. The type of cell to be used is decided based on a variety of factors, including the specific nature of the damage that needs to be repaired, the method of implantation, the extent of damage caused, if there is a vascular issue / oxygenation issue or not, and if the specific condition will be benefited more from one cell type or another.
Unfortunately, there is no such thing as a guarantee in any medical procedure, treatment, surgery or therapy. There are far too many variables to control, and what works for one patient or group of patients may not work for others. What stem cells won’t do is worsen your condition or speed it up. Either they will have a positive effect in repairing the tissue, or they won’t do anything.
