The healthcare industry is approaching a paradigm shift; moving away from opioid medications toward regenerative therapies for traumatic injuries, degenerative diseases, and chronic conditions. Stem cell therapy is one such treatment that uses potent, autologous mesenchymal stem cells (MSG) to facilitate endogenous tissue repair. As a leader in pain management, American Stem Cell Group is proud to provide this innovative and relatively new treatment option for patients suffering from debilitating ailments.
Khuram A. Sial, M.D., is a Harvard and Baylor-trained physician who is also double board-certified in pain medicine, and physical medicine and rehabilitation. A San Diego native, Dr. Sial has served the Inland Empire area for more than a decade, providing quality pain management to community residents and their families. Dr. Sial has received multiple awards for his compassion and competency in spine and pain care, some of which include:
Vitals Top Compassionate Doctor Award 2014
Vitals Top 10 Doctor Award 2013 & 2014
California Top 10 Pain Medicine Specialists
Vitals Patient’s Choice Award, 2012, 2013, & 2104
Dr. Sial began American Stem Cell Group after various research studies validated the effectiveness and safety of stem cells. Dr. Sial thoroughly believes stem cell therapy is the future of medicine, and he looks forward to establishing this treatment as a cornerstone of supplemental therapies.
At American Stem Cell Group, we are thrilled to be an integral part of the future of medicine. Simply stated, it’s our mission to provide high quality, regenerative medicine to patients suffering from degenerative and debilitating conditions. We believe every patient should have access to the safe and healing properties of stem cell therapy. Period.
The physicians at American Stem Cell Group perform a mini-liposuction procedure to collect stem cells from adipose tissue. Once we’ve safely extracted the tissue, our team places it into a centrifuge to have the sample spun down and isolated. This process ensures the stem cells and other growth factors are separated from the fat and excess tissue. Shortly thereafter, the stem cells are either intravenously or directly injected into the damaged tissue. Thus far, we’ve witnessed remarkable results.
NOW OFFERING PRP INJECTIONS
American Stem Cell Group also specializes in platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections! Like stem cell therapy, PRP injections use the patient’s own blood to deliver growth factors and other healing properties to damaged tissue. Dr. Sial of American Stem Cell Group ensures patient satisfaction and safety are a top priority. As such, Dr. Sial is dedicated to the use of FDA-approved equipment for the process of PRP therapy. He also ensures the proper precautions are taken into consideration to reduce the risk of infection or cross-contamination. PRP injections are a safe, effective way to reduce pain and boost healing in patients with chronic pain conditions and musculoskeletal injuries.
iPSC services: Induced Pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) are a type of pluripotent stem cells that can be reprogrammed from adult somatic cells, derived from healthy or diseased patients. These pluripotent stem cells provide a limitless supply of patient-derived samples to develop in vitro preclinical models of diseases, that represent the genetic and epigenetic features of a disease better. As well, iPSCs are amenable to genome editing which has been a stumbling block for developing research models using primary cells lines.
Applied StemCell (ASC) provides a wide range of integrated embryonic stem cell (ESC) and iPSC services, including iPSC generation/ ESC derivation, disease modeling/ correction using CRISPR/Cas9 and our proprietary TARGATT™ genome editing technologies, a complete panel of stem cell characterization (teratoma formation assays, pluripotency marker assays and more), and stem cell differentiation.
ASC is one of the earliest licensees of both the iPSC reprogramming factors from iPS Academia, Japan and the CRISPR/Cas9 technology from the Broad Institute. Using optimized, feeder-free protocols, we are experts in handling and maintaining healthy, pluripotent iPSCs at every stage of your project(s). ASC’s acclaimed CRISPR/Cas9 modified iPSC services for in vitro genetic disease modeling has even been featured in the article, “CRISPR/Cas9-transforming gene editing in drug discovery labs” (Comley, et al., 2016) published by the peer-reviewed magazine, Drug Discovery Weekly.
Over the decades, multiple procedures have been developed to achieve a more youthful and vibrant look such as using fillers to smooth out the deep wrinkles and lines on the face. Most of these consist of temporary fillers that eventually are absorbed and wear off. With the advance of Stem Cell technology, we can now use your own stem cells as fillers. This procedure is called Autologous Stem Cell treatment – a long term rejuvenation that doesn’t involve any foreign substance that is not your own. By harvesting stem cells from your adipose tissue and peripheral blood, the procedure restores youthful contour on the back of your hands.
Autologous Stem Cell Therapy Institute was founded in 2010 by Dr. Edmund Chein, MD.. Dr. Chein received his orthopedic and rehabilitation medicine training from the Los Angeles County- University of Southern California Medical Center. Dr. Chein was the first in the United States to use Human Growth Hormone for anti-aging in adults. In 1994 he founded the Palm Springs Life Extension Institute. Every year, hundreds of new patients come to the Institute from all over the world to get bio-identical hormone supplementation to slow down the aging and reverse biological age by lengthening the telomeres in their DNA. In 2012, Dr. Chein added Autologous Stem Cell Therapy to cure some of the disabling orthopedic conditions which Growth Hormone cannot cure, and enhance the youthful look of the hands of his patients.
What other conditions can Autologous Stem Cell Therapy treat?
Orthopedic conditions such as:
Osteoarthritis – IRB approved protocol
Tendinitis, partially torn tendons, ligaments, and meniscus of the knees. – IRB approved protocol
(IRB = Institutional Review Board – a FDA-approved research project)
The Importance of Growth Factors in the Success of Your Stem Cell Therapy
There are many types of stem cells used in stem cell therapy today. The most common and safest is autologous stem cell therapy, which uses one’s own stem cells collected from one’s own adipose tissues and peripheral blood. When your own stem cells are used as fillers, the stem cells become your skin cells, making the cosmetic correction permanent and natural.
It is well known that the age of the donor (you, in the case of autologous stem cell therapy) and the donor’s level of growth factors, such as IGF-1, growth hormone, testosterone, and estrogen, are directly proportional to the number and quality of the donor’s stem cells. In order to have a good quantity and quality of stem cells collected, we check the levels of the above-mentioned growth factors in the donor before starting the therapy.
We recommend bringing growth factors up to their optimal levels in case the levels of growth factors in you are deficient due to age or health status, in order to maximize the rate of success of your stem cell therapy.
Adipose Cell Extraction
We have recently acquired the Belgium-made Nutational Infrasonic Adipose Tissue Liposuction machine to obtain adipose tissue-based stem cells for transplant. It is the most advanced instrument for obtaining good quantity and quality of autologous stem cells from one’s adipose tissues to transplant to and regenerate the hands, as well as tendons, cartilage and ligaments in joints. This also allows us to combine adipose tissue-derived stem cells with those derived from peripheral blood with abundant growth factors.
Our international staff have been carefully selected and conform to the highest possible standards. We are up to date with the latest developments in stem cell technology worldwide, and consult with leading experts in the Americas. All medical procedures are performed by experienced and qualified medical professionals. Our medical team includes internationally recognized pioneers and experts in stem cell treatments.

Welcome to Bay Area Stem Cell Therapy
To us, health is important for optimal performance. We prefer to work on the whole individual, because if we’re healthy inside, we’ll be healthy outside and age more slowly outside as well. We have years of experience injecting hundreds of joints starting long before it became possible to extract regenerative cells from fat. Combine this with our extensive experience with liposuction, having performed over 4000 procedures, these factors make us the optimal physicians to extract regenerative cells from fat and re-inject them to rejuvenate joints.
When needed we also use ultrasound guidance to help place the cells in just the right location. Dr Riopelle has performed procedures under ultrasound guidance using for years as well. Our state of the art office in San Ramon also has a hyperbaric chamber that we utilize after placement of the stem cells to enhance their survival. The entire procedure from start to finish is performed in one afternoon in our San Ramon office. Patients from out of the area fly in the morning of the procedure and return home the next day if desired.
