Stem Cell Therapy Technology
Here at our Woolloongabba clinic we use only the most advanced technology to improve your stromal cell therapy experience and ensure you are receiving the best treatment available.
The stromal cell therapy procedure involves the use of liposuction (cell harvesting) technology as well as the far more specialised Ultrasonic Cavitation procedure. Ultrasonic Cavitation is a machine that produces a shockwave that separates the mesenchymal stem cells from ineffective body tissue. This procedure does not require any foreign abrasives such as chemicals or reagents, which means the treatment is much more patient-friendly.
In the initial part of treatment a mini liposuction procedure is used to extract adipose (fat) tissue from the body, whilst it is being treated with local anaesthesia. Approximately 300 cc’s of adipose tissue will be extracted, which will then be treated with ultrasonic cavitation to purify and refine the valuable regenerative cells. There are no added chemicals or enzymes in the process of ultrasonic cavitation, so it is essentially cleaner and safer. During the ultrasonic cavitation process, the fat cells and connecting collagen are fractured so that the purified cells, progenitor, and other immune modulating cells can be accessible for procedure use. The combination of all of these regenerative cells is recognised as Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF) cells, or is often referred to as stromal cells.
Before cells are injected, they must first undergo a quality test performed using a device called a flow cytometer, which will examine the quality of the cell, its viability, and count. The flow cytometer is required in order to define the optimal formulation and dosage of stem cell products. Our team at Brisbane Regeneration records cell numbers and viability in order to ensure the best chance of a successful treatment. The amount of cells recovered cannot yet be predicted, however it is essential that we know the total cell count and the viable cell count. With this data we are able to further understand the level of success in treatments and constantly improve our knowledge on stem cell therapy.
