Back Arthritis and Spine Disease

Back Arthritis and Spine Disease

Back arthritis and Spine Disease have two common problems causing back pain, degenerative disk disease and facet arthropathy (a type of arthritis). Not all disk problems are amenable to regenerative therapy and patient selection is very important to optimize outcomes. Many forms of back pain are actually due to arthritis of the facet joints (small joints where vertebra connect to their adjacent neighboring vertebrae).

Back Arthritis and Spine Disease Deployment Protocol

CSCTC has developed a back arthritis and spine disease protocol that attempts to exploit the anti-inflammatory and healing effects of SVF (rich in mesenchymal stem cells and growth factors). The protocol uses an advanced method of target planning using MRI with gadolinium contrast to identify inflamed or degenerated areas along the spine. Once these are located, SVF is deployed by laser guided CAT scan to within 1mm of the targets seen on MRI. This is all done as an outpatient at the time of SVF harvesting and procurement. The entire procedure takes approximately 4 hours. This unique targeting and deployment system is the only one like it in the world for deploying SVF into backs.
