What is Regenerative Medicine? Regenerative medicine itself isn’t new — the first bone marrow and solid-organ transplants were done decades ago. Recent advances in developmental and cell biology, immunology, and other fields have unlocked new opportunities to refine existing regenerative therapies and develop new ones. How Do Adult Stem Cells Heal? Adult stem cells are known as “progenitor” cells. They remain dormant unless they witness some level of tissue injury, which activates them. So, when a person has a degenerative problem, the stem cells tend to go to that area of need and stimulate the healing process. But, they can only do that when they are released from the tissue that they originate from (in our case, from adipose fat tissue) and are released to find areas of injury, triggering the primary means of repair for the area of injection. Of all stem cell sources, harvesting fat cells involves the least risk and delivers a high yeild of stem cells per cc. Adipose tissue (fat cells) is also one of the richest sources of Mesenchymal cells, or MSCs. These are the cells that can differentiate into a variety of cell types including bone cells, cartilage, and connective tissues but they also have tremendous cellular activity and release potent growth factors. Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF) Recent advances in stem cell science have made it possible to obtain high numbers of quality multi-potent cells from a person’s own fat, harvested by liposuction. Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF) is a state-of-the-art technology whereby fat is processed to yield up to 500 times the number of adult mesenchymal stem cells (per cc of fat) than can be yielded from bone marrow or blood. Typically there are approximately 1 million perivascular and mesenchymal stem cells per one cc of fat. The procedure entails performing a mini-liposuction (around 50 mL of fat tissue) typically from the abdomen, under local anesthesia. Perivascular and mesenchymal stem cells are extracted from the tissue, which are then incubated and deployed within ninety minutes or less. Under proprietary protocols, these stem cells are activated and deployed back into the patient where they secrete growth factors and paracrine effects leading to their regenerative potential. Clinical research suggests treatment success could be directly related to the quantity of stem cells deployed. The Regeneris protocol yields high viable cell counts which is critical to ensure the best outcome and result. Injections are administered directly into areas of concern (knee, spine, scalp, etc), or can be administered intravenously. Post-operative discomfort is minimal when followed by a minimal restriction on activity and a progressive therapy plan for recovery. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Platelet activation plays a key role in the process of wound and soft tissue healing. In fact, your platelets are the “first responders” of wound care, initiating the critical cascade to healing Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) raises the local concentration of platelets in the blood to above the baseline, and when activated, creates an environment which promotes healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints, and can be applied to various musculoskeletal problems. PRP injections are prepared from the patient’s own blood. Once prepared, the activated platelets are injected into the abnormal tissue, releasing growth factors that recruit and increase the proliferation of reparative cells. As early as the 1990s, PRP has been used in dental and plastic surgery. Several clinical studies have demonstrated that PRP injections have improved function and decreased pain to various levels of damage or degeneration, including elbow, wrist, shoulder, hip, knee, and ankle tendinosis. Early research is also showing promise for osteoarthritis. The side effects of PRP injections are very limited, as the procedure utilizes the patient’s own blood. Some relative rest is needed immediately following the procedure, and is usually followed by a progressive stretching and strengthening program.

Dr. Tess Patient Testimonial “I’m in my mid-50s. I went to Dr. Tess because I have rheumatoid arthritis which made me immobile due to debilitating pain...Two months after the procedure, I was in tears with my family as we told Dr. Tess how much our lives have changed since the procedure. I was so happy because my husband did not have to carry me into the bathroom anymore and I can spend quality time with my daughter again...If you’re living with pain, don’t think twice...JUST DO IT! –Anne P.

Regenerative Stem Cell Therapy for Reynaud’s Disease “I have struggled with Reynaud’s disease since I was 17 years old. I have been told by specialists that it is the worst case they have seen and even more strange that I have it so young. Having Reynaud’s is a constant disability to me. I struggled with it every day. Not being able to move your extremities is extremely disabling. I couldn’t be in cold climates, or even go through a frozen section at the grocery store. It was getting to a point where I couldn’t move my hands or feel any sensation but pain. Knowing how damaging this was to my ability to move my hands and walk and even do everyday things was really unsettling. After countless research and trials to find a way to soothe my symptoms I found that Dr. Tess was providing a procedure called regenerative stem cell therapy for diseases such as mine. This is the only thing that is proving to work and help patients who suffer from my same ailment. After consulting with Dr. Tess I went through with the procedure and have had a positive outlook on what my potential results would be. Six months after my procedure I have gone as long as 2 weeks without any episodes! I am beyond blessed and grateful to have found something that could so positively improve my quality of life. I have a toddler and husband and couldn’t imagine going through life not being able to hold my husband’s hand or play with my little one. This procedure has done wonders for me and I recommend to everyone having my disease or any other that feel as though nothing is helping. I cannot thank Dr. Tess enough for her expertise and for her artistry and skill in undertaking this complex procedure to help me. She is the best of the best and I will always be in debt to her and her staff for the care she has provided me and the hope I have to finally live a normal life. ” - Bre Buchner Patient, Admirer, Advocate
