07 Sep Stem Cell Therapy with Stromal Vascular Fraction
Stromal vascular fraction or SVF is a specific form of stem cell therapy that utilizes stem cells harvested from the person’s own adipose tissue (fat). It is perhaps the most effective use of stem cells yet.
What’s special about Stromal vascular fraction is that it holds the promise of hope for people who suffer from a various inflammatory and degenerative conditions. If you or a loved one is struggling with an inflammatory or degenerative condition, it can greatly impact the quality of life.
Since SVF works at resolving the underlying cause that leads to disease rather than only the symptoms of the disease, the result is much better than simply symptomatic relief.
Components of Stromal Vascular Fraction
The main component of Stromal vascular fraction is naturally occurring stem cells in your adipose tissue. Other components of SVF include –
- Growth factors
- Mesenchymal stem cells
- Endothelial precursor cells
- T-regulatory cells
- Smooth muscle cells
Growth factors are like messenger in the body that signal your cells and trigger them to perform various functions. Since SVF contains growth factors, it can reduce the inflammation that leads to various diseases and symptoms. It also results in growth and specialization of cells.
Some diseases and types of chronic pain that can be treated with SVF include –
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Joint replacement
- Crohn’s disease
- Certain neurological conditions, such as neuropathy, ALS, and Parkinson’s Disease
- Migraine and tension headaches
One major difference between Stromal vascular fraction and other medical treatments is that SVF can regulate the body’s systems so they behave normally in the future. With other stem cell treatments, the main focus is cell repair. While that is effective, regulating defective cells through SVF can even improve age-related decline of the cells.
