Dr. Kochert is 100% Pro-Life and believes that the harvesting of embryonic stem cells is in fact taking a human life and therefore is immoral, unethical, and antithetical to a physician’s oath to “first do no harm”.
Adult stem cells are easy to control, easy to isolate, and does not involve killing a human to isolate. There have been no case reports of tumors or other adverse effects.
Stem cell procedures have been widely researched and practiced. Using your own stem cells to regenerate and stimulate your body’s own healing mechanisms is safe and has been shown to be very successful. Most often, stem cell procedures are used as an alternative to traditional orthopedic surgery. However, stem cell procedures can be used to address complications from chronic diseases such as COPD, Multiple Sclerosis, and Rheumatological diseases.
ADSC is the isolation and concentration of adult stem cells from adipose tissue (fat). Extracting adipose tissue is one of the beginning steps in a stem cell procedure. ADSC is extracted by doing a ‘mini’ liposuction in the abdominal area. Later, this will be used during your stem cell procedure.
PRP is obtained through drawing blood. After a patient’s blood is drawn, the blood is centrifuged. When the blood is centrifuged, we carefully prepare your PRP by hand to achieve concentrate 10 times or more than concentrate in whole blood.
PPP is extract through drawing blood. It is put into an ointment that you can later apply after the procedure. This mixture prevents scarring.
