  • The newest treatment with amniotic stem cells is showing excellent outcomes with significant advantages over its rivas.

BONE MARROW

  • 29% incidence of pain
  • Major complications occurred in 10% and minor complications in 39%
  • Donor site complications include pain, nerve and artery injury, fracture, peritoneal perforation, sacroiliac joint instability, and herniation of abdominal contents through defects in the ilium.

ADIPOSE

  • Advocates say this method has the most stem cells.
  • While true initially, up to 80% of the fat graft dies within days.
  • A newer method of adipose stem cell therapy is available call SVF which helps with cell viability.

  • No ethical concerns.
  • No rejection — immunologically privileged.
  • Over 75 growth factors present and contains anti-microbial elements.
