ANNOUNCING THE NEW CELL SURGICAL NETWORK OF FLORIDA™
As a dedicated plastic surgeon, I am pleased to announce the launching of the Cell Surgical Network of Florida (CSN Florida). After more than three decades of plastic surgery experience in the area of cellular therapies with adult fat, I am excited to spearhead the most advanced cell based uses of this abundant resource. Our center is a research affiliate of Cell Surgical Network founder by Dr. Elliot Lander and Dr. Mark Berman of Los Angeles.
We use adipose (fat) derived mesenchymal stem cells for deployment & clinical research. Early stem cell research has traditionally been associated with the controversial use of embryonic stem cells. The new focus is on non-embryonic adult mesenchymal stem cells which are found in a person's own blood, bone marrow and fat. Most stem cell treatment centers in the world are currently using stem cells derived from bone marrow. Recent technological advances enable us to use adipose derived stem cells. Autologous stem cells from a person's own fat are easy to harvest safely under local anesthesia and are abundant in quantities up to 2500 times those seen in bone marrow. Although I have decades of experience with fat grafts, only recently were we able to convert processed fat into a clear infra natant pellet with millions of stem cells. This giant leap forward with advanced technology now allows our center to provide our patients with more predictable results for both cosmetic and reconstructive procedures.
