Stem Cell Treatment for Back Arthritis and Spine Disease
Degenerative disk disease and facet arthropathy, (a type of arthritis) are often the cause of back pain. And many forms of back pain are actually due to arthritis of the facet joints. These are the small joints between each vertebrae. The cartilage or “disks” in your spine can become damaged in a accident or worn as a result of disease causing severe back pain.
How Stem Cell Back Pain Treatment is Performed
Stem Cell Back Pain Treatment is performed under local anesthetic on an out-patient basis at the Cell Surgical Network of Florida ambulatory surgical center. Stem cell treatment begins with a sterile, closed surgical procedure to collect unwanted body fat with mini-liposuction. Your, (autologous) fat is then process to produce stromal vascular fraction, (SVF). Stromal vascular fraction contains a mononuclear cell line, (predominantly autologous mesenchymal stem cells), macrophage cells, endothelial cells, red blood cells, and important growth factors that facilitate the stem cell treatment process and promote stem cell their activity. This method of harvesting adult stem cells from body fat allows for the collection of 2500 times the quantities that can be collected from bone marrow.

After the SVF is prepared, Dr. Florete will inject the SVF into the targeted treatment area of the spine. Dr. Florete’s vast experience with spinal conditions and spine pain treatment allows for very accurate treatment with very large quantities of stem cells being introduced into the affected area of your joints.
After your treatment, millions of your stem cells respond to signals being broadcasted by the failing and damaged cells at the site of treatment. And these “mesenchymal stem cells” differentiate into bone and cartilage, and probably all other mesodermal elements, such as fat, connective tissue, blood vessels, muscle and nerve tissue, to become replacements for your damaged cells.
Depending on the number of treated ares, stem cell back pain treatment will take between 3-5 hours to harvest your adipose body fat, prepare the SVF, and deploy millions of your adult stem cells to the targeted treatment ares.
