First affiliated clinic of CSN in Malta, Europe
Using embryonic stem cells in medical research is a controversial topic. Using adult stem cells to cure disease has nothing to do with embryos, and is showing great promise for curing a wide variety of chronic conditions. Now, doctors are using a patient’s own stem cells to heal without surgery.
The affiliates of the Cell Surgical Network® (CSN) California, are devoted to advancing access and quality care in the area of adult stem cell regenerative medicine with investigational studies financed by patients in order to help people suffering from a variety of inflammatory and degenerative conditions.
St James Hospital in Malta, Europe joint the affiliated network of CSN. See more details at our Facebook site https://www.facebook.com/cellsurgicaltherapyaristoloft

Early stem cell research has traditionally been associated with the controversial use of embryonic stem cells. The new focus is on non-embryonic adult mesenchymal stem cells which are found in a person’s own blood, bone marrow, and fat. Most stem cell treatment centers in the world are currently using stem cells derived from bone marrow.
A recent technological breakthrough enables us to now use adipose (fat) derived stem cells. Autologous stem cells from a person’s own fat are easy to harvest safely under local anesthesia and are abundant in quantities up to 2500 times those seen in bone marrow. CSN and its affiliated clinics uses adipose derived stem cells for deployment & clinical research.
Clinical success and favorable outcomes appear to be related directly to the quantity of stem cells deployed. Once these adipose derived stem cells are administered back in to the patient, they have the potential to repair human tissue by forming new cells of mesenchymal origin, such as cartilage, bone, ligaments, tendons, nerve, fat, muscle, blood vessels, and certain internal organs. Stem cells’ ability to form cartilage and bone makes them potentially highly effective in the treatment of degenerative orthopedic conditions. Their ability to form new blood vessels and smooth muscle makes them potentially very useful in the treatment of peyronies disease and impotence.
There are many anecdotal studies made already, the example below was posted on Jun 15, 2015 by Erin Dacy (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Elsa Rosa can’t walk without pain. Doctors say she needs two knee replacements. Instead, she’s trying something new, stem cells harvested from her own body to heal her knee.
Rosa said, “I would like to be active again. I’m young at heart.” Doctors use liposuction to extract fat cells from Elsa’s abdomen. The cells are separated, concentrated and treated. The doctor injects her own stem cells back into Elsa’s knee, where they will grow and hopefully, heal the damage.
Bill Johnson, MD, Internal Medicine Specialist of Innovations Medical in Dallas, Texas said, “It’s a great option for Elsa, because we’re seeing about 85 percent of knees respond.” Stem cells harvested from your own body have the ability to reproduce and become cartilage, bone and muscle.
“Well, it is remarkable. I think that we’re seeing some really remarkable changes in responses in a lot of our patients,” Dr. Johnson said.
Rosa said, “I think I’ve gone through enough pain, so I don’t need any more.” Elsa is just hoping to walk again pain-free, without going through the discomfort of knee replacement surgery or the inconvenience of rehabilitation.
Adult stem cells are being used in clinical trials all over the country to treat everything from chronic pain, joint problems, erectile dysfunction and COPD. The FDA still considers the stem cell therapy investigational, and insurance companies typically will not cover the procedures.
