Degenerative Eye Disease

Macular Degeneration
Macular Degeneration is the leading cause of vision loss, affecting more than 10 million Americans – more than cataracts and glaucoma combined, according to www.macular.org. Considered to be an incurable eye disease, Macular degeneration is caused due to the deterioration of the central portion of the retina or macula. The macula is the back layer inside of the eye that records the images we see and sends them via the optic nerve from the eye to the brain. The macula is responsible for focusing central vision. Without a proper functioning macula patients have trouble being able to read, recognize faces or colors, see fine detail in objects, or even to drive a car. Deterioration of the macula come in 2 basic types; “dry (atrophic)” which is more common, appearing in 85%-90% of all cases, and “wet (exudative)” which is less common, only occurring in 10%-15% of all patients suffering from Macular degeneration.

Autologous stem cells harvested from a patient’s own body fat may help patients with Macular degeneration since they can regenerate cells of the central portion of the retina.

Retinal Micro-Hemorrhage
Retinal hemorrhage is abnormal bleeding of the blood vessels of the membrane in the back of the eye, or the retina. Autologous stem cells harvested from a patient’s own body fat may help patients with Retinal Micro-hemorrhage since they can repair damaged blood vessels.

Cardiopulmonary

Congestive Heart Failure (CHF)
Congestive heart failure occurs when the heart (the bodies pump) is not sufficiently maintaining blood flow to meet the body’s needs. Autologous stem cells harvested from a patient’s own body fat may help patients with CHF since they can fix the “pump” problem by supplying healthy myocardial cells.
Cardiomyopathy
Cardiomyopathy refers to diseases of the heart muscle. These diseases have a variety of causes, symptoms, and treatments. Cardiomyopathy is the thickening and/or enlarging of the heart muscle. Scar tissue forms on the heart, which weakens it. This weakening of the heart decreases its ability to pump blood throughout the body and maintain a normal electrical rhythm. This can lead to heart failure, arrhythmia and other serious complications such as heart valve problems. Heart failure can cause fluid to build up in the lungs, abdomen or lower extremities like the legs, ankles and feet.

Autologous stem cells harvested from a patient’s own body fat may help patients with Cardiomyopathy since they can rejuvenate heart muscle to a healthier state.

post Heart Attack (MI)
As a heart attack happens the flow of oxygen through a section of heart muscle suddenly becomes blocked and the heart can’t get oxygen. Heart muscle begins to die if blood flow is not restored quickly. Autologous stem cells harvested from a patient’s own body fat may help patients post heart attack (MI) since they can become new cardiac cells to regenerate and rejuvenate the damaged heart muscle.
COPD
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a disease that makes it difficult to breathe and gets worse over time. Examples of COPD are Bronchitis and Asthma. These conditions can produce large amounts of mucus which cause coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness, and other symptoms. Autologous stem cells harvested from a patient’s own body fat may help patients with COPD since they can regenerate airway structures allowing more air through its passages.
Cardiopulmonary / Cardiology

Cardiologists are recognizing the therapeutic applications of regenerative cells to repair and regenerate damaged tissues as it relates to the cardiothoracic system. It is in this field that the largest amount of published data is available, and current research suggests these new, progressive non-surgical techniques hold significant promise for repair tissue.

The human cell contains bioactive proteins capable of accelerating soft tissue healing and the development and possible repair of blood vessels and can promote growth of epithelial tissue and stimulate more rapid healing.

Neural Degenerative Diseases and Injuries

Parkinson's Disease
The National Parkinson Foundation describes Parkinson’s disease (PD) as a “neurodegenerative brain disorder that progresses slowly in most people. Most people’s symptoms take years to develop, and they live for years with the disease. In short, a person’s brain slowly stops producing a neurotransmitter called dopamine. With less and less dopamine, a person has less and less ability to regulate their movements, body and emotions.” Source: www.parkinson.org
For more information and research please visit: www.michaeljfox.org

Autologous stem cells harvested from a patient’s own body fat may help patients with Parkinson’s disease since they can regenerate neurons and rejuvenate dopamine levels in the body.

Alzheimer’s Disease
The Alzheimer’s Association describes Alzheimer’s as “a progressive disease, where dementia symptoms gradually worsen over a number of years. In its early stages, memory loss is mild, but with late-stage Alzheimer’s, individuals lose the ability to carry on a conversation and respond to their environment. Source: www.alz.org

Premature senility is the cause of Dementia and 60%-70% of all cases turn out to be Alzheimer’s. This generalized degeneration of the brain may be helped with the regenerative power of autologous stem cells rejuvenating patient brain cells in patients with Alzheimer’s disease.

Spinal Cord Injury (SCI)
The spinal cord is a major bundle of tightly compacted nerves contained within the vertebral column that carry nerve impulses to and from the brain. The spinal cord and the brain constitute the central nervous system. In SCI spinal cord severing does not have to take place for a loss of function to occur. In most patients that have SCI, the spinal cord is still intact, but damage to cells results from compression or inflammation. This compression or inflammation that occurs results in patients losing function. An SCI is very different from back injuries such as pinched nerves, ruptured disks or spinal stenosis. These other back injuries involve musculoskeletal and peripheral nerve changes where as a spinal cord injury involves damage to the central nervous system.

Autologous stem cells harvested from a patient’s own body fat may help patients with Spinal Cord Injuries (SCI) since they can regenerate nerve cells needed to decrease inflammation and decompress damaged spinal cords

Stroke Damage
People that have suffered a stroke have had brain cell damage either because oxygen rich blood that was supplying their brains reduced for a time (ischemic stroke) or have had bleeding in the brain (hemorrhagic stroke). People with stroke damage have a variety of ailments post event(s) including depression, pneumonia and other related neurological deficits.Autologous stem cells harvested from a patient’s own body fat may help patients with Stroke Damage since they can regenerate and rejuvenate brain cells. New healthy brain cells can eventually diminish ailments brought on by strokes.
Cognitive Impairment
Cognitive Impairment can develop due to a number of symptoms including those described above in this category. Mental alertness and memory may be helped with autologous stem cells harvested from a patient’s own body fat due to the stem cells possibly becoming nerve cells in the brain.

Musculoskeletal Injuries

Degenerative Arthritis

Stem Cell Therapy for Ailing Knees

image-1Cartilage is a connective tissue found in many parts of the body. Although it is a tough and flexible material, it is relatively easy to damage. This fine, rubbery tissue acts as a cushion between the bones of joints Healthy cartilage allows the bones to move and glide over each other with minimal friction and with no pain. Articular cartilage is the smooth, white tissue that covers the ends of bones where they come together to form joints. Healthy cartilage in our joints makes it easier to move. It allows the bones to glide over each other with very little friction. Articular cartilage can be damaged by injury or normal wear and tear.

It is very important for the preservation and normal function of the joints. In the knee, cartilage is responsible for providing a smooth protective layer covering the femur, tibia and the patella undersurface, as well as serving as a shock absorber for the knee. Cartilage does not have its own blood supply so it does not have the natural ability to heal itself after damage from a sports injury, work injury or a traumatic event. If left untreated, a knee cartilage injury can cause deterioration in the joint leading to osteoarthritis and other degenerative disorders.

Alternative to Shoulder Replacement

stem-cell-treatment-for-shoulder-painThe shoulder is the most mobile joint in the human body and is put under constant motion and stress every day. Because of this, many patients experience shoulder osteoarthritis during their lives, causing them to suffer from chronic joint pain, swelling and inflammation. Osteoarthritis is caused by deterioration of articular cartilage, the smooth, white substance that covers the ends of each shoulder bone. Over time, a patient’s bones may rub against each other while the shoulder is in motion from total loss of cartilage. Alternatives to shoulder arthroplasty may include injections such as cortisone.  More recently, there is early data suggesting that biologic injections may be beneficial for patients with early to moderate osteoarthritis.

Emergency medicine doctor and trauma medicine specialist, Dr. Dale Carrison now offers stem cell therapy for selected patients with shoulder arthritis and injuries to manage painful symptoms associated with early to moderate shoulder arthritis and degenerative conditions that cause pain for patients. We also treat traumatic injuries relating to sports or other issues.
