Dysplastic cells: Photodynamic therapy may be useful in your case. You take a photosynsitizer and then a laser and destroy the cells by lighting the specific areas. Look up centers that offer this. It may be an option for you. We do it at henry ford hospital. Good luck.

Tissue graft: Dear sir:
i recently took a course about grafting formulas made from the patients own blood then centifuged with an intraspin centfriguge for 12 min. @ 2700 rpm's. This yields a layering of different cells of the patient's.There are at least 4 different compounds used to concentrate the platelets (wbc's) and theirs becomes part of a healing dressing.
