New treatments with stem cells
Medicine | Stem cells are regarded as a hope for new therapies in medicine. Their application is already standard in the treatment of leukemia. For many years the use of fat and its components for health and beauty are at the center of the Viennese doctor DDr. Karl-Georg Heinrich. He treats patients with their own stem cells. “We are now able to say that stem cells from body fat are beneficial to patients who suffer from a range of diseases,” explains Heinrich. “The stem cells are particularly suitable for repairing damaged body tissue, such as joint problems like osteoarthritis and sports injuries.” Skin damage and thinning hair can also benefit. The advantage of the new treatments with the body’s own cells is that only a minor surgical procedure is performed under local anesthesia.
