Adipose-Derived Stem Cells – A Potent Source of Healing


Did you know that your fat contains stem cells that can be used to heal your body?

It’s true.  Your adipose (fat) tissue contains an abundant amount of stem cells and proteins that not only have incredible therapeutic applications, but also are simple to harvest and deliver back into your body.

Adipose-Derived Stem Cells (ADSC) have been show to have tremendous regenerative capabilities. Because of their high potency, physicians have used them in a wide variety of regenerative medicine treatment applications, including wound healing, cardiovascular grafts, soft tissue and cartilage repair, neurodegenerative diseases, post-mastectomy repair, and cosmetic applications.




Your physician will extract the adipose stem cells using a simple procedure similar to liposuction. After the procedure, stem cells are then separated from adipose tissue.


Once stem cells have been harvested, processed, and transplanted back into your body, they integrate with the targeted tissue and begin secreting essential growth factors and facilitating tissue formation and repair. Stem cells then start dividing to replace or repair the damaged tissue.


Stem cells are different from other types of cells in your body in two important ways. Because they are unspecialized cells, they possess the ability to renew themselves through the process of cell division.




Millions of adipose-derived stem cells are found in our bodies, waiting to be harvested and used to heal. Although any type of procedure can be intimidating, ADSC is minimally invasive and relatively pain-free, with little to no downtime.


  • Because your own cells are used, there is no risk of immune rejection.
  • Adipose stem cells can be used in a number of different applications.
  • These types of cells are potent and highly active, so many patients start feeling better right away.
  • The “harvesting” procedure itself is a minimally invasive, and performed on an outpatient basis.
