Stem Cell HarvestingHouston, TX

Stem cells have the remarkable ability to transform into the types of cells present in an area that needs repair.  Stem cells injected into joints where the cartilage has broken down can cause new, healthy collagen to grow.  Stem cells have been used sucessfully to treat neurologic disorders such as stroke, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, and MS (multiple sclerosis).

Rodriguez Rejuvenation is affiliated Celltex, a leading United States stem cell therapy company that is based in Sugar Land, Texas.  Under local anesthesia, Dr. Rodriguez harvests (removes) about 20ml of your own fat, using tiny, thin specialized liposuction cannulas (blunt aspiration needles), from an area where you will not miss it, such as the flanks, love handles, or thighs.  The fat is carefully processed and packaged, then sent by courier within hours to Celltex, where the stems cells are isolated, cultured (grown) to several millions, and stored until you are ready for your stem cell transplant.

For skin rejuvenation, Dr. Rodriguez uses PRP (platelet rich plasma) which contains stem cells extracted from your own blood.  A small amount of blood is taken from the arm (less blood than for your yearly physical) then placed in a special centrifuge that spins the blood to separate the red blood cells from the white blood cells and platelets which contain the stem cells. The plasma liquid which contains stem cells is then meticulously infected into areas of loose skin, wrinkles, or scars to help repair the tissue.
