Stem Cell Treatment

 Stem Cell Therapy Adelaide

What is stem cell therapy?

Stem cell therapy is the use of your body’s own stem cells to repair a joint.
The procedure involves four main steps.

  1. Cells will be extracted using a mini-liposuction procedure where
    adipose (fat) tissue will be extracted.
  2. This will be put through a process called ultrasonic cavitation which
    will remove all tissue except stem cells and other growth cells – the
    remaining cells are known as SVF (stromal vascular faction) cells.
  3. The SVF cells will be tested for quality using a flow cytometer. This
    ensures we are giving your stem cell procedure the best chance of
  4. The SVF cells will be injected back into your body either through an IV
    or injected directly into the joint using ultrasound technology to guide
    the injection.

After the stem cell treatment, it is recommended that you have a follow up
appointment with Norwood Day Surgery 3 days, 2 weeks, 2 months and 6
months after your procedure. Your doctor will discuss your progress with
you and may utilise standardised pain tests such as WOMAC or HOOS
depending on the joint where you received the stem cell therapy – our Adelaide practice has parking and is easy to access.
