Peripheral neuropathy (PN) is a degenerative disorder of the nerves (usually of the hands and feet) and has many causes including traumatic injuries, infections (neuritis), metabolic problems and exposure to toxins. One of the most common causes is diabetes, and many cases are due to auto-immune disorders, but frequently, the cause of neuropathy cannot be identified. Peripheral neuropathy often causes symptoms of numbness and pain described as burning or tingling. Physicians use a number of medications to reduce the painful symptoms of peripheral neuropathy. Some cases progress and are resistant to medical therapy, making it difficult to manage symptoms. There is hope that mesenchymal stem cells will mitigate some of the degenerative effects of neuropathy.
Physicians often use a number of medications to reduce the painful symptoms of PN, but some cases are resistant to medical therapy, making it difficult to manage symptoms. Mesenchymal stem cell therapy offers a promising new option for PN patients that may mitigate some of the debilitating effects of neuropathy. At Gulf Coast Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine Center(GCSC&RMC), we have developed a specific protocol that attempts to harness the potential immuno-modulatory and regenerative properties of Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF), which is rich in mesenchymal stem cells, growth factors, and cytokines. The SVF is the end product of the fat harvesting procedure through a mini-liposuction and is deployed systemically as well as injected locally into the affected tissues. Done as an outpatient procedure at the time of fat harvesting and SVF procurement, this process takes approximately three hours.
Peripheral Neuropathy – Gulf Coast Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine Center
GCSC&RMC, being an affiliate member of the Cell Surgical Network(CSN,) uses specific SVF protocols that attempt to utilize the potential immune-modulatory and regenerative properties of SVF (rich in mesenchymal stem cells and growth factors). SVF is deployed systemically as well as injected locally into soft tissue. In addition, we at GCSC&RMC seek the nerves that supply the affected areas and bathe them in stem cells at strategic anatomical sites. This is all done as an outpatient at the time of SVF harvesting and procurement. The entire cellular surgical procedure takes approximately three hours.
We at GCSC&RMC care about our patients and understand their difficulties. We take pride in the time we spend caring for them and deploying, what we believe, is the best protocol to help them achieve their goals.
