Stem cell Banking

What can I use my stem cells for?

 Stem cells, specifically those taken from adult fat called Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSC), offer you a multitude of potential and emerging applications in regenerative medicine; and for many intractable afflictions.

As MSC are found in abundance in your own fat it’s now possible for a physician to harvest a small sample of your own fat (5ml to 10ml) in a short outpatient procedure; and for reDermis® to isolate the MSC from your fat to cryopreserve these stem cells almost indefinitely for your personal use.

It may sound ‘to good to be true’ that one type of stem cell can do so much, but it’s a fact of medical science that MSC have many applications in regenerative medicine, and their safety and efficacy have been confirmed by a large number of pre-clinical and clinical studies. ‘Mother Nature’ gave our own stem cells a therapeutic power that is far greater than science can hope to replicate; we should take advantage of the potential that belongs to ourselves.
