FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
A stem cell is basically any cell that can replicate and differentiate. This means the cell can not only multiply, it can turn into different types of tissues needed to heal damaged tissue or organs.

These adult stem cells are undifferentiated dormant cells. This means they will do nothing unless they witness some level of tissue injury. It's tissue injury that turns them on. So, when a person has an injury or a degenerative type problem, the stem cells are drawn to the area of need and stimulate the healing process.
Patients have their fat harvested in our special sterile treatment facility under a local anesthetic. The fat removal procedure lasts approximately twenty minutes. Specially designed equipment is used to harvest the fat cells and less than 100cc of fat is required. Post operative discomfort is minimal and there is minimal restriction on activity.
Stem cells are harvested under sterile conditions using a special "closed system" technology so that the cells never come into direct contact with the environment throughout the entire process from removal to deployment. Sterile technique and antibiotics are also used to prevent infection.
No. Only a person's own cells are used (autologous). These are harvested from each individual and deployed back into their own body during the procedure. There is no risk of contamination or risk of introduction of other DNA into the treatments.
No. Only adult "mesenchymal" stem cells are used. These cells are capable of forming bone, cartilage, fat, muscle, ligaments, blood vessels, and certain organs. Embryonic stem cells are associated with ethical considerations and limitations.
Tennessee Spine and Disc is part of a national clinical trial for stem cell therapy. What this means for you as a patient is that you can get clinical data of success rates of the condition you want healed. Additionally, you can be assured that the standard of care that being part of a clinical trial brings.
You should be alert to other clinics in the area that claim to use stem cells. Many use stem cells from cadavers (yes, you get stem cells from dead bodies.) They also can't give you statistical data on successful outcomes. SCTCT has the power of a clinical trial behind it.
STEM CELL BANKING
Knee pain sufferers in Middle Tennessee are getting long lasting RESULTS with our NON-SURGICAL knee pain relief and repair program. When looking at the knee, we look at the entire process of what the knee does and how other areas of the body affect the knee to find the cause of the knee pain. For example, foot issues, such as a flat arch, can cause the knee to absorb a lot of extra pressure when the foot does not come in contact with the ground properly. A good pair of custom inserts could help with knee pain relief in this case, even if there is no foot pain.
