Our mission: To advance cell technology
in order to improve the body’s ability to regenerate.
At the Chicago Stem Cell Treatment Center, we provide care for people suffering from diseases that may be alleviated by access to adult stem cell based regenerative treatment. The Center utilizes a fat transfer surgical technology to isolate and implant the patient’s own stem cells from a small quantity of fat harvested by liposuction on the same day. Patients who seek care at the Chicago Stem Cell Treatment Center are evaluated by a respective member of our multispecialty expert panel of Board Certified physicians representing many medical fields. The Chicago Stem Cell Treatment Center emphasizes quality and is highly committed to clinical research and the advancement of regenerative medicine.
CSCTC was founded in 2010 for the investigational use of stem cells deployments for degenerative conditions. The source of the cells is actually stromal vascular fraction which is a protein rich segment of processed adipose tissue and not a drug. Stromal vascular fraction contains a mononuclear cell line (predominantly autologous mesenchymal stem cells), macrophage cells, endothelial cells, red blood cells, and important growth factors that turn on the stem cells and promote their activity. We have high numbers of viable cells and we are trying to learn which diseases respond best and which deployment methods are most effective. We are growing and continue to use our surgical methods to deploy SVF for various degenerative conditions. CSCTC employs a clinical research coordinator to protect our valuable data and our vision is to perfect our treatments and ultimately teach them to other physicians around the world.

Conventional pain treatments have been very good at reducing pain by masking discomfort in a “band-aid” fashion with oral or injected medications like steroids, narcotics, or NSAIDs. These therapies, unfortunately, do not fix the underlying problem.
Fixing Tissue Injury
So how is the condition actually repaired, whether it’s shoulder/knee/hip/ankle arthritis, back or neck pain, golfer’s or tennis elbow, rotator cuff tendonitis or a ligament injury?
Regenerative Medicine has the potential to restore anatomy with stem cells, growth factors and platelets to facilitate a healing response in one’s own body.
Stem Cells are like a blank slate and may differentiate into any number of cell types for tissue regeneration. This is in large part dependent on the environment in which they are placed.
Do you want relief from chronic pain without prescriptions, pain-killers or invasive surgery? Stem cell regenerative therapy offers you cutting-edge treatment that can allow you to once again live your life to the fullest. Imagine being able to enjoy a round of golf, play with your grandkids, or take that long-overdue trip, in less time than expected! With the Stem Cell Therapy for Pain’s Stem Cell Regenerative Therapy, you can live the life you want to live again!
Stem cell therapy involves taking stem cells from one area of the body and then injecting it into an injured area. Stem cells are responsible for rebuilding and regenerating the body. The underlying premise, is that stem cells are in fact living cells that can transform themselves into different types of tissue or functional cell. Therefore, they are able to differentiate into ligaments, tendons, bone, nerve, and cartilage.
When an injury occurs, it is the stem cells that are released and summoned by the body to rebuild damaged muscle, joints, or cartilage. By injecting these stem cells directly into the damaged area, it may assist and accelerate the body’s natural healing process.
Until recently, treatment options for osteoarthritis or joint pain were limited. Steroid injections, joint replacement surgery, and physical therapy were the only treatment options. Stem cell injections are now available and not only are they being considered in relieving pain but also in helping heal the joint.
Benefits of Stem Cell Therapy
Minimally invasive procedure
Avoid surgery and its many complications and risks
Minimal post-procedural recovery time
No use of general anesthesia
No risk of rejection since the stem cells are your own
Increased mobility and function
Who May Benefit from Stem Cell Therapy?
Stem cells may be used as therapy in the following conditions or may help improve the following:
Chronic Back Pain
Degenerative Disc Disease
Knee tendon & Ligament Injuries
Spinal Cord Injury
Stem Cells are typically taken from two areas of the body: Bone Marrow or Adipose Tissue (Lipoaspiration). Different physicians sometimes use one over the other, or both, both serve the same purpose – to provide a source of MSCs.
The Regenerative Stem Cell Institute is devoted to advancing successful outcomes and quality care in the area of adult stem cell regenerative medicine. Therapy is offered for a variety of inflammatory and degenerative conditions under an IRB Approved Research Protocol with Board Certified physicians at eight locations in Chicagoland. Under this protocol over 9000 successful stem cell procedures have been performed nationwide!
Your stem cells are your body’s natural healing cells. They are recruited by chemical signals emitted by damaged tissues (e.g. organs, cartilage, tendon) to repair and regenerate your damaged cells. Stem cells derived from your own body are the next major advancement in medicine.
The Regenerative Stem Cell Institute (TRSCI) has the technology and protocols to produce a solution rich with your own stem cells. Under our national investigational research protocols, the regenerative therapies are used to study a number of degenerative conditions and diseases.
THE STEM CELL HARVESTING PROCEDURE
TRSCI specializes in the use of adipose (fat) derived stem cells. With our current technology and protocols, we harvest your own cells under a local anesthetic, break down the collagen that binds the fat and stem cells, then separate out a solution rich in your own stem cells. The process used by TRSCI yields extremely high numbers of stem cells.
Stem cells can be harvested from several areas on your body that has an adequate supply, but we prefer to harvest it from the areas that will give you the best cosmetic result. The mini-liposuction is done under local anesthetic. This procedure is done under strict sterility and the processing of the cells uses a completely closed system. One of our experts will inject the cells according to the most appropriate route. This is called “deployment.”
Because it’s your own DNA material, no rejection occurs. A solution rich with your stem cells is administered through an injection into tissues, joints, or veins. The entire procedure takes approximately three hours.
