Fat-Derived Stem Cells vs Bone Marrow – Achieving Cartilage Regeneration

Scott Brandt, M.D. Research, Stem Cell Therapy, Stem Cells for Back Pain, Stem Cells for Joint & Soft Tissue Pain

Based on previous studies and our clinical experience, ThriveMD has built our stem cell therapy procedure based on the use of mesenchymal stem cells (MSC’s) prepared from adipose tissue (fat). The mixture of regenerative cells and growth factors that are derived from adipose tissue is called the stromal vascular fraction (SVF) and has been an excellent choice for soft tissue repair, especially the regeneration of cartilaginous joints such as knees, hips and shoulders.
