What is Stem Cell Therapy?

Stem cell therapy is a cellular therapy emerging as a frontline regenerative medicine source. Essentially, stem cells are harvested and then injected at the site of disease or damaged tissue, so reconstruction of the tissue is feasible under the right circumstances. Cells can be collected from blood, fat, bone marrow, dental pulp, skeletal muscle, and other sources. Our bodies use stem cells as one way of repairing itself–replacing, repairing, reprogramming or renewing diseased cells.
