Advancements in stem cell medicine take place every week across the world. Where to get a stem cell treatment depends in part on why you need it. Different clinics focus on specific medical problems, such as blindness, heart damage, arthritis, spinal disorders, or autoimmune illnesses. You should compare the credentials of the doctors, cost, expected results, relevant research, and how the treatment is done.
Adult stem cells can be harvested from the blood, bone marrow, adipose (fat) tissue, dental pulp, and other locations in the body. These are your own cells, which brings new meaning to your body’s ability to heal itself. After being harvested the cells are separated out from other cells. What happens next depends on where the clinic is located, and what type of procedure is being offered. In America the FDA strictly regulates the use of stem cells.
