Stem Cell Therapy Procedure
Performed in a relativity painless in-office procedure or in the operating room in conjunction with a surgical procedure.
Dr. Halbrecht uses the patients’ own fat stem cells. Fat yields 3-500X more cells/cc than bone marrow.
There are several methods for harvesting, concentrating and administering Stem Cells. At Boulder Regenerative Medicine, Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSC’S) are derived from fat in areas on the abdomen or sides of the back.
Using sterile technique, local anesthetic is used to numb the area. Sterile saline is injected under the skin and into the fat to loosen the tissue. The fat is withdrawn into a syringe and placed into a patented system using filters and saline to separate the MSC’s and fat from the undesired oil, blood and cellular debris. The fat and saline is agitated with small stainless steel balls to break up the fat (micronize) into smaller pieces for easier injection. This preparation is injected into the desired location.
