Regenerative Medicine for Rheumatoid Arthritis

Like other types of arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis is a condition marked by inflammation in the joints. But unlike the more common osteoarthritis, which is caused by wear and tear on the cartilage that cushions the joints, rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease. The immune system attacks the joints, resulting in inflammation, irritation, and cartilage damage. Rheumatoid arthritis usually occurs in joints on both sides of the body. Common sites of swelling, pain, and redness include the hands, wrists, and knees, but other joints and organs may be affected. Treatments are aimed at quelling inflammation and halting disease process, but new regenerative medicine approaches are also being explored.

Stem Cell Research and Rheumatoid Arthritis

At the Newport Beach Stem Cell Treatment Center, we offer a protocol for rheumatoid arthritis that takes advantage of the potential beneficial effects of adult stem cells, which are particularly abundant in adipose, or fat, tissue. The protocol involves removing several ounces of fat from the abdomen or another area during a liposuction procedure. The stem cells are then separated from the fat and reintroduced into the patient through injection or intravenous infusion. This regenerative medicine procedure, done in an outpatient setting, takes about three hours.

At the Newport Beach Stem Cell Treatment Center, we are committed not only to quality care for our patients with rheumatoid arthritis but also to stem cell research and the advancement of regenerative medicine. We are proud to be part of the only Investigational Review Board (IRB)-based stem cell treatment network in the United States that utilizes fat-transfer surgical technology. We have an array of ongoing IRB-approved protocols, and we provide care for patients with a wide variety of disorders that may be treated with adult stem cell-based regenerative therapy. Not all cases of rheumatoid arthritis respond to stem cell therapy, and each patient must be assessed individually to determine the potential for optimal results from this regenerative process.
