Stem Cell Therapy – The Procedures

We at JMC perform stem cell therapy procedures in the state-of-the-art cardiac Cath lab and a surgery center. We are equipped with the latest technological equipment and instruments. Stem cell therapy at JMC is performed by specially trained and licensed physicians. If you have been looking for a reliable and safe stem cell therapy center, you can put your trust in us.

The stem cell therapy procedure might vary from one patient to another, depending on the condition that is being treated. However, irrespective of the condition that is being treated, there are 3 basic steps. Given below is a list of those steps:

Treatment steps in JMC Cell Therapy

  • First Step is Fat Harvesting: A small amount of fat will be removed from your body for harvesting stem cells. The procedure will be undertaken under IV sedation in our well-equipped surgical facility.For performing the procedure, you need to lie down on the operating table. A small section of your body from where fat will be extracted will be exposed. The physician performing the procedure will make a puncture (almost the size of the tip of an eraser). Water-assisted suction equipment will be used to remove the required amount of fat from the body. The procedure takes around one hour and there are no stitches and the punctured area will heal naturally.


  • The Second step is Cell Processing: Immediately after the extraction of the fat tissue, the stem cells are segregated from the fat tissue thus extracted. Don’t worry, the cells of the body are not manipulated or changed in any way. The tissues are just separated from the extracted fat and processed for re-introduction into the body, especially in the damaged areas, which needs healing. Cell processing takes around 2 hours during which you can wait in the recovery suits.


  • The Final step is the implantation of the stem cells: Once the cells are processed, the adult stem cells extracted from your own body fat are then reintroduced to your body by IV infusion or intravenous delivery of cells. For the patients with cardiac problems, the adult stem cells are injected into the heart muscle via a catheter inserted into the groin artery.

Recovering from stem cell therapy operation.

You can see that the JMC Cell Therapy is actually a minimal invasive procedure. It is a same-day, outpatient procedure that requires very less recovery time. Once the operation is done, you will have to wait a while for observation, after which you can return home. However, do remember to follow up to be sure that the incisions are healing well and the treated area is showing positive results.
