Investigating Inflammatory Bowel Disease : How Stem Cells Can Help Reduce Symptoms

digestion-3d
Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) isn’t exactly a topic that many people talk about. In fact, anything related to the bowels is pretty taboo in most conversations. Even though IBD doesn’t usually come up in everyday conversation, 1.6 million Americans experience the painful symptoms of IBD every day. Dr. Johnson treats patients with ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease, the two most prevalent forms of IBD with stem cell therapy at Innovations Stem Cell Center. What is Crohn’s Disease? Crohn’s Disease is an autoimmune disease that causes the chronic inflammation of the digestive tract. Crohn’s can affect the bowels, stomach, rectum, and even the mouth and esophagus. Symptoms of the disease include painful abdominal cramping, bloody stools, pain in the rectum, bloating, nausea and vomiting, excessive gas and diarrhea. Some patients with Crohn’s can even experience painful and dangerous bowel obstructions. Crohn’s can also cause joint pain and fatigue. Many Crohn’s can...

Don't Let Sports Injuries Sideline You

crossfit-pushup
Exercising and staying active are key components to staying healthy, but sometimes physical activity can lead to joint, muscle, and cartilage injuries that may leave you on the bench or out of the gym. These injuries, often caused by overuse, can be frustrating for many people because they take a long time to heal and require rest. Sometimes these injuries never completely heal, forcing many individuals to give up their active lifestyles. Stem cell therapy from Innovations Stem Cell Center can help heal damaged joint and connective tissue injuries, and get you back in the game. Types of Sports Injuries Many types of injuries can occur during physical activity, sports, and exercise. The most common injuries include tendonitis, or inflammation of the tendon, tears to cartilage or muscle tissue, and concussions. These injuries can be caused by repetitive use or trauma. These injuries can cause pain, limited motion, and in...

Saving Skin with Stem Cells and the SkinGun

Skin and Stem Cells
New stem cell project, called the SkinGun, that has been used to successfully treat burn victims by growing new skin to replace damaged tissue using their own stem cells, according to Newsweek. The Skinny on the SkinGun The SkinGun is the first product of its kind. During the SkinGun treatment, a small sample of skin, about the size of a postage stamp, is taken from a from an unburned area of the burn victim's body. The skin sample is then spun to separate out the stem cells. Once the stem cells are separated, they are put into a solution. The stem cells are in their pure form, not altered in any way. The solution is then sprayed on the victim’s burned skin. Once the stem cells are deployed onto the patient’s damaged skin, they go to work repairing damaged tissue. The stem cell spray process is quick, and only takes...

Know the Signs of Osteoarthritis

joint-doctor
Are you experiencing joint pain? Muscle weakness? Stiffness with movement? You may be experiencing the signs and symptoms of osteoarthritis. Dr. Johnson treats osteoarthritis patients using stem cell therapy that uses their very own stem cells. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis. It can impact any joint of the body. Common joints affected include the hips and knees, but many patients experience osteoarthritis in their wrists, hands, and fingers. Some people experience it in their spine, too. Osteoarthritis can strike at any age, but the typical onset is after the age of 40 as a result of aging. Younger patients with the condition may experience it as a result of injury or wear and tear caused by overuse. Symptoms of the condition include pain in a joint or joints that occurs with movement, stiffness in joints after lying down or sitting for long periods, joints that are swollen...

Taking Control: How the Body Controls Stem Cells

research
An international team of researchers in combination with scientists from the Luxembourg Center for System Biomedicine at the University of Luxembourg has discovered how the body develops red and white blood cells from progenitor cells. Researchers on the project are hopeful that their new discovery will lead to explanations as to how the body creates different cells and improved stem cell treatments. Progenitor cells, like stem cells, have the ability to change into a specific cell type. Although more specific than a stem cell, they are not as defined as a specific cell type like a skin cell or a nerve cell. Progenitor cells and stem cells differ in the fact that stem cells replicate multiple times without end, while progenitor stem cells have a limit to how often they can divide. Researchers on the project applied growth hormones to the blood cells of mice and watched how these cells...

Stem Cell Treatments for Achilles Tendon Injuries Get Patients Back to Activity Faster Than Traditional Treatments

soccer-kick
Achilles tendonitis and tears are painful conditions that sideline many athletes and active individuals from their favorite sports or activities each year. Patients with these injuries often become frustrated with traditional self-care treatments like rest, ice and over the counter pain relievers because their inability to bring relief. Surgical interventions also do not guarantee results, and patients, tired of pain and inactivity, are now turning to new therapies. One new therapy is SVF stem cell therapy that uses stem cells to treat damaged Achilles tendons and other soft tissue injuries. The Achilles tendon is a band of thick, tough tissue that connects the calf muscle to the heel bone in the foot. It is the largest tendon in the human body, and also the most strong. This tendon gives the foot its ability to flex, and plays a key role in normal daily functions walking, and other physical activities like...

Exciting Stem Cell Therapy News

science-and-technology-news
Stem cells have long been under the microscope – examined, tested, and researched in hopes that they held the keys to treating incurable diseases, mystery conditions, and even spinal cord or traumatic brain injuries. Dr. Johnson treats patients for many diseases and disorders using stem cells and is always excited to share stem cell news, research, and innovations. This blog is about a recent breakthrough for a stem cell therapy patient. Although not treated by Dr. Johnson, the news is exciting nonetheless. A stem cell study trial participant, Kris Boesen, had lost the ability to move his arms and hands after a serious car accident that had occurred in early 2016. Unable to move or even feed himself, Boesen’s quality of life was greatly diminished, and he became depressed. Boesen chose to participate in a clinic trial in hopes of being able to regain some movement. Just weeks after his...

A Brief History of Fat Transfer

history-chalk
Each year, more and more people are opting to go under the needle than under the knife. Fat grafting is becoming a popular alternative to cosmetic surgery across the United States. While fat grafting is gaining traction, it is not exactly a new procedure. In fact, it’s been around for over one hundred and twenty years. It has come a long way since its beginnings. Dr. Johnson performs a very modern fat grafting procedure called High Volume Precision Fat Grafting, as an alternative to invasive cosmetic surgeries. Fat grafting, also referred to as fat transfer or fat injection, initially was used as a way to correct facial deformities. It may surprise you that the first fat graft was actually performed in 1893. This pioneering procedure took fat from the arm of a patient and injected it into an area around the eye in order to improve the appearance of a...

Smoking and Cosmetic Procedures Just Don't Mix

cigarettes
Considering having a cosmetic procedure and you’re a smoker? You may want to take a moment to read this blog before lighting up your next cigarette to find out why smoking and cosmetic procedures don’t mix. In this blog, Dr. Johnson explains why it is best to stop smoking before going under the knife – or the needle. You probably already know that smoking, along with chewing tobacco or using any product that contains nicotine is generally bad for you. The risks of cancer, cardiovascular issues, damage to your teeth and skin, are just a few of the many side effects of using these products. Other effects include vasoconstriction, a condition in which the blood vessels constrict and slow down the flow of blood. Nicotine makes the blood vessels constrict, and when this happens after a cosmetic procedure healing can be impeded. Healing is interrupted because when blood flow is...

Synthetic Stem Cells - Risk or Reward?

lab-research
Late last year, a synthetic cardiac stem cell was created at the University of North Carolina and the North Carolina State University with the hope that the synthetic cell could offer the same or similar benefits to patients as therapies that use natural stem cells. While researchers behind the project have high hopes for treating heart patients, physicians and patients should proceed with caution and care before delving into the world of synthetic cells. Dr. Johnson explains why natural stem cells have lower risks and greater rewards for treating patients for a myriad of medical conditions. The use of natural stem cells, like adipose fat stem cells, taken directly from the patient is more favorable that using synthetic stem cells because the risk of rejection is completely eliminated. Synthetic stem cells carry the risk of rejection, as does synthetic or artificial tissues. Using synthetics may also result in dangerous complications....

How Can Stem Cells Save You From Migraines?

headacheaaw
Head in a vice. Throbbing head pain. Waves of nausea. Sensitivity to light and sound. Flashes of light. Blurred vision or even vision loss. These are just a few of the ways you may describe your migraine experience. Other symptoms can include vomiting, difficulty speaking, and numbness in the face or extremities, but this list just scratches the surface of this painful condition. Pain and migraine symptoms can last from four to seventy-two hours during a migraine episode, and seriously impact many sufferers’ ability to function at work, in social situations, in their day to day lives. Migraines and their symptoms have even been cited as a reason for divorce in some cases. Dr. Johnson understands that migraines are more than "just a headache." He recognizes the serious impact of migraines on a patient’s quality of life and offers SVF therapy for patients who suffer from the most debilitating migraine...

Finding the Foundations of Pulmonary Fibrosis

lungs
Pulmonary fibrosis is a deadly lung disease that affects around 140,000 Americans. The disease causes the development of scar tissue in the lungs. This scar tissue builds up and eventually obstructs sufferers from breathing. Some causes of pulmonary fibrosis include smoking cigarettes, exposure to some gasses and other lung irritants and some viral illnesses, like the Epstein-Barr virus. However, for many pulmonary fibrosis sufferers, the cause of the disease is said to be idiopathic, or unknown. However, researchers at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California, have been able to uncover one cause previously unknown to science and medicine – the inability of lung stem cells in certain individuals to repair themselves after injury. Pulmonary fibrosis is part of a group of lung diseases known as interstitial lung diseases. Interstitial lung diseases cause obstructive scar tissue to form in the lungs. For patients with pulmonary fibrosis, this scar tissue cannot...

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...
