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. Fat tissue provides the largest volume of adult stem cells, while bone marrow provides growth factors to aid with the repair process. That's why we ...

Colorado has over 20 ski resorts spread throughout the state and is home to one of the longest ski seasons in the country. The longer the ski season, the greater chances there are for injury. To help treat both acute and chronic injuries, we provide stem cell therapy for skiers in both our Vail and Denver clinics. The stem cell treatments for joint injuries and low back pain have been an effective treatment to allow patients to quickly return to skiing and other activities they love. Like you, we have a passion for ...

Interventional Pain Management – Dr. Brandt and a 25-Year Retrospective

Joe Krieger Other, Research

Approximately twenty-five years ago, interventional pain management was a novel concept with less than 500 physicians actively using fluoroscopy to specifically target painful spine conditions. The “Interventional Pain Management Revolution”, began with physicians like Dr. Scott Brandt, who saw the value of using live X-Ray guidance to target these structures in a minimally-invasive manner. Share this post:At the Forefront of TechnologyThe results of Dr. Brandt, and other physicians like him, were industry-wide shifts in applying new technologies to treat a variety of pain syndromes, and ultimately to help to beneficially ...
