About the offer

Avancell Joint in Vienna offers stem cell therapy for moderate cartilage damage (osteoarthritis III) with a moderate inflammatory reaction or moderate joint effusion, utilizing both adipose and bone marrow-derived stem cells. Our treatment aims to address the debilitating effects of moderate cartilage damage by harnessing the regenerative potential of stem cells. This innovative approach targets the root cause of osteoarthritis, promoting tissue repair and regeneration for long-term relief and improved joint function. Through our comprehensive treatment protocol, patients undergo a minimally invasive procedure to harvest adipose tissue or bone marrow, depending on individual suitability and medical assessment. The collected stem cells are then processed in our state-of-the-art laboratory, where they are concentrated and prepared for injection into the affected joint. This personalized approach ensures optimal efficacy and safety, tailored to each patient's unique needs and condition severity. Fat stem cells are so-called "adipose-derived stem cells". These cells are obtained from your fatty tissue. A minor liposuction is carried out under local anesthesia. The fat cells are then mechanically broken down, and the stem cells are released. In addition to the stem cells, the so-called "fat graft" also contains secretions from the stem cells, which also have anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effects (secretome). By using this treatment, we achieve pain reduction on multiple levels: cellular, paracrine (through messenger substances), and through the mechanical properties of the fat graft. Also, stem cells are found in large numbers in the human bone marrow. These cells are also precursor cells of cartilage cells and can, therefore, also differentiate into these cartilage cells. We obtain these stem cells from the bone marrow by puncturing bone marrow from the iliac crest under local anesthesia. This is then processed and concentrated. In addition to the stem cells, the bone marrow also contains anti-inflammatory factors and factors from the stem cells, which are also very practical and combat osteoarthritis pain and inflammatory processes. The stem cells are introduced using ultrasound. Patients can enhance their treatment through additional services for an extra fee. These supplementary offerings are designed to complement the primary therapy and optimize outcomes. Chondrofiller scaffold injections offer structural support to the regenerated tissue, promoting long-term cartilage health. Patients can also benefit from an MRI prescription for detailed imaging, enabling precise assessment of treatment progress. Additionally, a free second opinion on prior diagnoses provides clarity and peace of mind, while shockwave therapy enhances tissue healing and reduces pain. Avancell's comprehensive rehabilitation protocol ensures thorough post-treatment care, with control examinations to monitor progress. For those unable to attend in person, distant virtual rehab and physiotherapy sessions offer convenience and accessibility, allowing patients to continue their recovery from the comfort of home. These supplementary services provide a holistic approach to treatment, addressing various aspects of the patient's condition and promoting overall well-being. Our stem cell therapy offers numerous benefits over traditional treatments, including reduced pain, improved joint mobility, and enhanced quality of life. Utilizing the body's natural healing mechanisms, our therapy offers a promising alternative for patients seeking relief from osteoarthritis symptoms. With Avancell Joint, patients can expect compassionate care, cutting-edge technology, and expert medical guidance throughout their treatment journey toward better joint health and function.

Should I choose Avancell Joint Vienna for the treatment of osteoarthritis?

The medical center is one of the best institutions for osteoarthritis because it has specially developed treatment algorithms for each stage of joint damage. These algorithms are explicitly aimed at conservative treatment and stopping disease progression. Modern technologies and high-tech equipment have allowed specialists to gain an excellent reputation.

How much blood marrow is needed for stem cell therapy?

Approximately 60-120 milliliters of bone marrow aspirate is typically needed for bone marrow-derived stem cell therapy.

How much fatty tissue is needed for stem cell therapy?

Around 50-100 grams of fatty tissue is usually required for adipose-derived stem cell therapy.

What are the contraindications to the treatment of osteoporosis using stem cell therapy?

Severe cardiovascular diseases, active infections, malignancies, and certain autoimmune disorders may be contraindications to stem cell therapy for osteoarthritis. A thorough medical evaluation is necessary to determine eligibility for treatment.

Why is stem cell therapy better than standard osteoporosis cure?

Stem cell therapy offers a regenerative approach to repair damaged tissue and potentially halt disease progression. Unlike standard treatments that mainly address symptoms, stem cell therapy targets the underlying cause, potentially providing longer-lasting benefits and improving overall joint function.

What is the difference between blood-derived and adipose-derived stem cell therapy?

Blood-derived stem cell therapy offers advantages like less invasive extraction, quicker recovery, and potentially higher cell count. Adipose-derived treatment may provide a larger cell yield and be suitable for regenerative purposes, but it requires a minor surgical procedure for fat extraction.

What is the difference between blood-derived and bone marrow-derived stem cell therapy?

Bone marrow-derived therapy entails obtaining stem cells from the bone marrow. It offers a higher concentration of stem cells but may require a more invasive procedure and a longer recovery period.

What are the advantages of stem cell therapy using a scaffold (Chondrofiller)?

The scaffold provides structural support for stem cells, aiding their integration into damaged tissue. This enhances the regenerative potential and promotes more effective tissue repair. Additionally, the scaffold helps maintain the stem cells' viability and stability, maximizing their therapeutic benefits.
