Stem cell therapy is a medical breakthrough that has revolutionized the way we approach treating illnesses and injuries. Through stem cell therapy, a patient’s own cells are used to help heal damaged tissues or organs. By harnessing the power of stem cells, a physician can help to replace lost or damaged cells in the body and reduce the symptoms of certain diseases or conditions. We will take a look at the procedure of stem cell therapy and how it works. We’ll explore what happens during treatment, how safe it is, and why it’s so effective.
How is stem cell therapy performed?
There are a few different ways that stem cell therapy can be performed, depending on the type of therapy being used. For example, autologous stem cell therapy (using your own stem cells) is usually done by taking a sample of blood or bone marrow from the patient and then separating out the stem cells. Once the stem cells have been isolated, they are injected back into the patient’s bloodstream. Allogeneic stem cell therapy (using donor stem cells) is usually done by taking stem cells from the donor’s blood or bone marrow and then injecting them into the patient’s bloodstream. In some cases, the stem cells may be taken from umbilical cord blood.
