About stem cell therapy


Stem cells are the main cells located around the vessels in all tissues in humans. They become active when tissue damage occurs. They serve as part of the body’s healing and repair response.

Although many experimental studies have been carried out in musculoskeletal injuries, the most important use of stem cells today is in the regeneration of damaged articular cartilage. Stem cells can be taken from adipose tissue or bone marrow. Stem cells are concentrated from the taken liquid using special centrifuge systems.

After the stem cells are obtained by centrifugation method, they are administered by injection directly into the joint. In this technique, after the insertion is given, the stem cells are expected to reach the damaged area by themselves. Successful results have been reported in roughly 80% of patients treated for cartilage damage with stem cell method.
