Cellular Therapy

Cellular therapy is widely used in the field of orthopedics. The concept of cellular therapy is a broad concept. however, the use of cells prepared in laboratory conditions mostly includes cartilage, fibrocyte and platelets. 

My Approach

In use, the source may be bone marrow (stem cell), Plasma (Platelet enriched with Plasma) or directly the cell itself. Bone marrow and plasma can be used in a short time after being subjected to special treatments and filtered. However, a production period is required for cell production under special culture and laboratory conditions. In general, treatmentcellular regeneration therapy”is called.

Why do they stay where they are?

Cellular therapy is applied in tissues that do not have the ability to self-renew. The cartilage cell's ability to reproduce is suppressed within the tissue. Therefore, it cannot compensate for the loss of tissue in the cartilage. However, the cell sample can be activated from the outside and reproduced and transferred to the defect area, and healing is prevented with tissues that do not have cicatrix-cartilage quality. Thus, organ or limb function is not impaired.

How and where are these cells prepared?

First we separate the forehead cells. This is done by various processes in the form of filtration-centrifugation and healthy cells are selected under the microscope. It is then reproduced in suitable environments. This reproduction is then continued by providing a certain distribution on a skeleton we call a matrix. The tissue is ready for delivery when the appropriate volume is achieved.

How is the preparation made in the region to be given?

The area where the tissue will be transferred is prepared in a way that is adjacent to healthy cells, well-blooded and easily detectable. Dead cells are cleaned, space is made for healthy tissue and blood supply is provided.

How long will it take him to fulfill his new duties?

If the tissue is a person's own cell, it functions as long as it maintains its vitality without undergoing a remodeling process, and the cartilage matrix can begin to multiply within 24-72 hours. Attachment of the tissue takes place in a period of 3-12 weeks, depending on the region. At the end of 2 years, the tissue skeleton is completely renewed and its continuity with other neighboring cells is ensured. The situation is very different in foreign cells. If cell rejection occurs, the cells are enveloped and killed within 72 hours, leaving only the matrix and cartilage-mimicking cells called fibrocyte.

Is it on the agenda to use it elsewhere?

It is possible to use in all joints, the use of cellular therapy in fractures with super glues has come to the fore.

How do you see the future of treatment?

In the future, we will do all treatments using cells. Even non-regenerative nerve tissue will be treated in this way.
