Stem cell therapy?: I am certainly not an expert in this area but I am guessing that's what you are referring to.I dont think that this is not being done routinely on humans in the usa although the regulations are more permissive in other countries.

Biocellular Therapy: Uses biologics (from platelets or bone marrow) mixed with cellular source (fat) to obtain the stroma carrying a variety of stem/stromal cells helpful for healing. This mixture is often guided by ultrasound to insure exact placement into tissues that are damaged or diseased. Minimally invasive, using microcannulas (lipoaspirating) on small syringes to obtain the adipose cells.
