Beating Bone Disease

spine-xray
Osteoporosis is a serious condition that is responsible for two million broken bones and almost twenty billion dollars of related costs each year. Treatment for osteoporosis involves taking calcium and other dietary supplements, or behavioral modifications like switching to a healthy diet and exercise. New studies show a promising new treatment that uses stem cells derived from fat to prevent this bone disease. Dr. Johnson currently uses stem cells sourced from adipose fat to treat another bone disease, osteoarthritis, as well as a host of other medical conditions. Osteoporosis occurs as when we lose bone, or our bodies don’t make enough bone. It is a relatively common condition, and it impacts fifty-four million Americans. Most people with osteoporosis are over the age of fifty, but the disease can happen at any time as a result of other medical conditions like lupus or rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoporosis occurs more frequently in women...

Come Chew the Fat with Us!

chew-the-fat-chalk
Fat often gets a bad rap. Fat is usually associated with negative images and negative stereotypes. We are often told that fat is bad – in our bodies and our diets. While there are risks associated with some kinds of fat, there are also some pretty positive things about fat, too. In fact, fat can be downright great. Dr. Johnson uses fat to treat nerve, muscle, and bone disorders, among many other medical conditions in patients who have not found relief through traditional medical treatments. There are two different kinds of fat in the body. These types are known as white fat and brown fat. Our bodies usually have more white fat. Unfortunately, this is kind of fat is the kind we don’t necessarily want. It’s what makes us gain weight and can lead to health complications. White fat does have its benefits and serve a purpose. It can store...

How are Stem Cells Related to Football?

football-concussion
Earlier this year, the National Football Leagues and the NFL's players association settled a five hundred million dollar lawsuit and began a concussion initiative to bring awareness to the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of concussion in its players. This initiative, according to Chairman Roger Goodell, was implemented to increase safety and protect players. The NFL concussion controversy has been in the news for some time and settled the lawsuit from players who have experienced traumatic brain injury as a result of repeated concussions. Repeated concussions cause a condition known as chronic traumatic encephalopathy or CTE. Dr. Johnson treats patients who have suffered traumatic brain injury with SVF fat cell therapy. Fat stem cell therapy are believed to benefit patients who have suffered traumatic brain injuries or concussions by helping to repair neural cells that have been damaged by impact or a lack of blood supply. While the body can heal...

Part 3: Successful Stem Cell Therapies

copd
Our first two blogs addressed some of the controversies behind the use of stem cells, and then how the adipose fat stem cells that Dr. Johnson uses are collected. Adipose fat stem cells have been successful for a wide variety of conditions because of their ability to target and repair damaged cells and tissue. In this segment, we will review some of the conditions and diseases that have seen benefits from the use of these stem cells and SVF therapy. One of the top conditions seen in the clinic is osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis, or OA, is a form of arthritis that is degenerative. Some of the areas it can impact include the knees, hips, hands, and even the spine. It attacks the joints and breaks down cartilage, causing bones to rub against each other painfully. OA is the cause of most hip replacement surgeries in the United States. Adipose stem cell...

Researchers Supe Up Spinal Stem Cell Regeneration

research-lab
Researchers at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center have successfully increased the ability of nerve cells to regenerate in the spinal cords of in adult mice. Despite their small size, these mice are evidence of a major advancement in the treatment of adult humans with spinal cord injuries. Injury to the spinal cord can occur as a result of injury, trauma or illness, and may cause death or permanent disability, like paralysis and sensory impairment. Patients with spinal cord injuries experience many additional health issues besides just a loss of motor functions. Spinal cord injury patients typically have higher blood pressure and an increased risk of developing blood clots. The digestive and excretory systems are also impacted, and patients have a higher chance of developing bladder and bowel cancer. Many spinal cord injury patients experience depression, poor quality of life, and economic hardships, and are twice as likely to...

Stem Cell Therapy Stops Diabetic Nerve Pain In Its Tracks!

Diabetes
Diabetes is a disease that affects more than just the pancreas. Diabetic patients have an increased risk of developing heart disease, kidney disease, and even blindness. Diabetic patients often develop painful peripheral neuropathy, or nerve damage, as a result of their condition. Historically, treatments for peripheral neuropathy have been limited to managing blood sugar levels in an effort to slow the progression of the disease. Other treatments manage nerve pain with pain relievers or prescription medications – some of which have serious side effects. New technologies and treatments like SVF therapy are changing how diabetic nerve pain is treated – and showing promising results. Diabetic peripheral neuropathy happens as a result of the body's exposure to consistently high blood glucose levels. The American Diabetes Association estimates that over 30 million Americans are living with diabetes. Peripheral neuropathy affects 50 percent of this group and is common among both Type 1...

Part 2: Stem Cell Collection

stem cell iv
In our last blog, Small Cell, Big Controversy , we explained the basics behind the controversy surrounding stem cell therapies. While the controversy is usually over the use of embryonic cells, many people project their concerns and question about the ethical and moral use of stem cells onto all stem cell therapies - even those therapies that use adipose fat cells. Many times there are questions regarding how these cells are harvested. Dr. Johnson collects adipose fat stems cells in his clinic – right from the individuals that they’ll be used to treat. How are adipose stem cells harvested? Mesenchymal adipose fat stem cells are harvested from the thigh, buttocks, or abdominal area, and are collected through the use of a cannula during liposuction. A cannula is a medical instrument with a long blunt tube that aids in the fat extraction process and a syringe to hold the collected fat....

Part 1: Small Cell, Big Controversy

3d cell
Although stem cells are so tiny, they’re always big news – and big controversy. Concerns range from the morality and ethics of embryonic stem cells harvested from fetal tissue to using stem cells to recreate extinct species in test labs a la Jurassic Park. Dr. Johnson is often asked about stem cells and how he uses stem cells to treat patients. Some of these questions include what kinds of stems cells are used, how they are harvested, and what are their benefits. There are many different sources of stem cells found in the body. Some of the most commonly discussed are embryonic, tissue-specific, and mesenchymal. Embryonic stem cell use is at the heart of the stem cell controversy because their harvesting uses human embryonic tissue. This practice is often protested over ethical and religious reasons because the embryonic stem cell collection can destroy the embryo in use. There are other...

Spotlight on Stem Cells: What are Stem Cells?

microscope
Stems cells have taken the medical world by storm, but many people are unaware of the integral role they play in treating chronic illness and diseases. The term "stem cell" still carries quite a bit of stigma, most likely because people don’t fully understand the way stem cells are harvested and used in medical treatment models. At Innovations Stem Cell Center, Dr. Bill Johnson uses stem cells to treat a number of illnesses and diseases such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) , spinal cord injuries and even sports injuries . But what are stem cells, and how exactly can we use them to treat medical conditions? Stem cells are some of our bodies most unique cells because they have two very important characteristics that set them apart from other cells. They can replicate, essentially making new copies of themselves, and they have the ability to become other types of...

Break Free from Osteoarthritis Pain with Stem Cell Therapy

knee pain cold
 At Innovations Stem Cell Center, Dr. Bill Johnson uses stem cell therapy to treat patients suffering from  osteoarthri tis. As the end of summer draws near and the colder weather begins to creep in, many people suffering from osteoarthritis begin dreading what that time of year brings: pain and discomfort. Osteoarthritis, a degenerative joint disorder and the most common form of arthritis, affects more than 26 million people in the United States. Patients commonly suffer from pain, swelling, and joint stiffness, making everyday tasks difficult to complete. With chilly weather on the way, it’s no wonder why osteoarthritis patients want to keep Jack Frost at bay as long as possible. According to a 2007 Tufts University research study, changes in temperature or barometric pressure triggered arthritic symptoms in osteoarthritis patients. In fact, even a mere 10-degree drop in temperature was significant enough for patients to report a change in their...

A Breath of Fresh Air: How Stem Cell Therapy Helps Treat COPD

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) affects more than 24 million Americans and is currently ranked as the third leading cause of death in the United States. This disease is most often a result of smoking or exposure to tobacco smoke, though air pollution, infectious diseases and genetic factors can sometimes cause it. People with COPD can suffer from chronic coughs, shortness of breath, wheezing, fatigue and recurrent respiratory infections. Sometimes, a patient with COPD dismisses these signs, assuming that problematic symptoms are simply a sign of old age. However, it’s crucial to recognize these early warning signs and seek treatment as soon as possible. While there is currently no cure for COPD, patients traditionally have been able to manage their symptoms with treatments such as bronchodilators, inhaled steroids, oral steroids, oral medications such as theophylline and roflumilast, oxygen therapy or, in very severe cases, a lung reduction or transplant surgery....

Stem Cell Therapy: A touchdown for the treatment of knee injuries

While we’re still a few weeks away from the official start of football season, several football players are already down for the count with serious knee injuries during NFL pre-season games and scrimmages. In a pre-season game against the Houston Texans, San Francisco 49ers backup quarterback, Thad Lewis, sustained a serious knee injury that will cause him to miss the entire season. Also, the Chicago Bears’ starting center, Hroniss Grasu, ended his season before it even began with a torn ACL during a tackling scrimmage. These stories are all too familiar, not only in professional football, but also for many former high school and college athletes who still suffer from pain and discomfort as a result of knee injuries they sustained while playing sports. Treatment for these injuries can be time-consuming and painful. Knee repairs or surgeries are often major with a lengthy recovery time spanning anywhere from weeks to...

Where do Stem Cells Used in Adult Stem Cell Therapy Come From?

Adult Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cells are special cells that can multiply and turn into other types of cells. They have the potential to heal many illnesses and are already being used to treat multiple diseases like autoimmune disorders, cardiac disease, lung problems like COPD and even Crohn's disease. Stem cells are found in all tissues in the body. But in order to obtain them, the tissue needs to have a large enough number of stem cells. The two common tissues are bone marrow and fat. Bone marrow can treat blood derived diseases. However, fat is more easily harvested and can produce more stem cells in one procedure than bone marrow. Fat cells could become the easiest and most likely source for future stem cells for adult stem cell therapy . Innovations Stem Cell Center | Adult Stem Cell Therapy | 214-256-1462

Is Adipose Stem Cell Therapy the Future of Medicine?

Adipose Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cells are found in three main places. The first ones discovered were in embryos. This brought up several ethical concerns and complications in obtaining the embryonic stem cells. The second source of stem cells is from adult bone marrow. They have the same properties and potential medical applications as embryonic stem cells without the ethical questions surrounding them. The third place stem cells are found is in adipose cells (fat cells). They are easier and less invasive to harvest. All stem cells have two important properties: The ability to multiply. The stem cells can make an infinite number of copies of themselves. They can become any type of cell. Stem cells are blank and can become skin, bone or muscle cells. There are endless possibilities for the medical uses of stem cells. Now that they can be harvested from adult fat cells, the procedures are far less invasive. One area...

Using Stem Cell Therapy for COPD to Improve Quality of Life

Stem Cell Therapy For Copd
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease lessens a person's quality of life. When you're diagnosed with COPD, the first thing a doctor will tell you to do is to quit smoking. There are several treatment options that will be given to diminish symptoms and help improve your quality of life. These include inhaled medications, either long or short acting. They can be used as needed or sometimes a combination of both is required. Oral medications help manage COPD as well as oxygen therapy to help a patient feel less fatigued and more able to live their lives. Steroids and respiratory therapy have shown to help with COPD as well. When a patient has tried other treatments and is still having difficulty living with COPD, it may be time to try stem cell treatment. Stem cells are harvested from adult fat cells and then administered through an IV and a nebulizer. 90% of...
