CELL THERAPY SERVICES
Cell-based therapy using minimally invasive techniques presents cells from another part of the body to the area that has been impacted, with the goal of accelerating the restoration. Stem cells will release proteins known as growth factors to assist with healing, repairing and restoration of damaged areas.
INNOVATION & REJUVENATION
What is Cell Therapy?
A breakthrough treatment that does not involve surgery assists your body in restoring itself via stem cell isolation from one location of the body to an area that may be diseased, injured or inflamed. This process is done with a minimally invasive surgical technique which is performed right at the clinic.
When the words Regenerative Medicine show up, you may think of notable athletes like Kobe Bryant, Chris Johnson, Alex Rodriguez, and Chauncey Billups. These athletes (among countless others) have taken advantage of cell therapy to make remarkable recoveries from sports-related injuries considered to be severe.
How is this possible?
Cells are the fundamental structural and functional units of any living organism. Cell therapy involves injecting cellular material into the body of a patient. In regards to Regenerative Medicine, the goal is to improve the biological function of tissues and organs that may be damaged or degraded.
To achieve this, cellular material injection, from either a patient (autologous) or a donor (allogeneic), may be used to target several distinct conditions. Cell therapies primarily consist of pair of categories: Platelet-Rich Plasma and Stem Cell.
Stem cells (also known as the master cells of the body) reside inside all of us among various tissues and they are responsible for repairing damage the body suffers. Via the self-renewal process, stem cells are able to produce a series of different cell types based on the body’s unique needs. As the body undergoes aging, it cannot generate sufficient stem cells to fully repair the damage quickly. Through the use of stem cells extracted from a high volume area such as adult bone marrow, Gentera can focus the cells and inject them into the body’s damaged areas for a natural yet sped up healing process.
Stem cells generally serve five functions that each benefit the body:
1. They serve as raw material for damaged tissue rebuilding (via a transformation into other cells).
2. They promote new blood vessel creation (angiogenesis).
3. Growth factors are released which boost healing.
4. The cells will replicate to multiply their effects
5. The cells communicate with the body to draw in more cells to the affected area.
Soft tissue such as muscles, tendons, and ligaments with insufficient blood flow can benefit greatly from cell-based therapies. These therapies are popular for treating orthopedic injuries.
Stem cells are able to differentiate into one or more certain cell types and they prove to be an effective treatment for injuries involving the spinal cord, reducing the death of cells, stimulating existing cell growth, and replacing cells that are injured.
There is a potential to rebuild and regenerate hip joint cartilage and fluid using stem cell therapy. Reinjected cells may naturally boost the repair process of tendons, ligaments, and arthritic joints that are injured or degenerated.
WOUND & SKIN CARE
Cell-based therapies may result in tissue regeneration that has received damaged due to chronic or acute wounds (including burns and scar tissue) while also controlling the visible effects of aging and skin exposure to ultraviolet rays.
