Stem Cell Therapy in Lockport

Chronic Pain Lockport IL Stem Cell Therapy

Stem cell therapy in Lockport is useful because as the body ages over time, our natural ability to produce stem cells, as well as their effectiveness is diminished. As we age, the body produces a fraction of the number of stem cells it used to and our ability to quickly bounce back from injuries is lost. This doesn’t happen overnight, as such nagging aches and pains that don’t simply go away start developing, and before long life of chronic pain can become the norm.


What is Stem Cell Therapy in Lockport

A stem cell is basically any cell that can replicate and differentiate. This means the cell can not only multiply, it can turn into different types of tissues needed to heal damaged tissue or organs. These adult stem cells are undifferentiated dormant cells. This means they will do nothing unless they witness some level of tissue injury. It's tissue injury that turns them on. So, when a person has an injury or a degenerative type of problem, the stem cells are drawn to the area of need and stimulate the healing process.


Why Choose Our Clinic?

Chicago Anti-Aging Institute is part of a national clinical trial for stem cell therapy. What this means for you as a patient is that you can get clinical data of success rates of the condition you want to be healed. Additionally, you can be assured that the standard of care that being part of a clinical trial brings.


Are Stem Cells Safe?

Stem cells are harvested under sterile conditions using a special "closed system" technology so that the cells never come into direct contact with the environment throughout the entire process from removal to deployment. Sterile technique and antibiotics are also used to prevent infection.

Patients have their fat harvested in our special sterile treatment facility under a local anesthetic. The fat removal procedure lasts approximately twenty minutes. Specially designed equipment is used to harvest the fat cells and less than 100cc of fat is required. Postoperative discomfort is minimal and there is minimal restriction on activity.

No. Only adult "mesenchymal" stem cells are used. These cells are capable of forming bone, cartilage, fat, muscle, ligaments, blood vessels, and certain organs. Embryonic stem cells are associated with ethical considerations and limitations.
