Where do Regenerative Cell treatments come from?
Regenerative cells can come from a variety of sources within the body. Typically, they are harvested from bone marrow of the hip via a semi-invasive procedure that allows a provider to extract the active cells. Another way to harvest regenerative cells is to perform a more invasive procedure called a Lipogem. This procedure allows regenerative cells to be extracted from fat tissue which is then processed to concentrate the active cells. At Rejuvinix we offer multiple regenerative options both allogeneic and autologous. We utilize the newest biotechnology through active cryopreserved cells, which is ready for immediate patient use. We also utilized the newest, minimally invasive FDA approved device to extract the most viable regenerative cells from your body.
