Apollo Hospitals is set to introduce a new stem cell-based treatment for the cosmetic and reconstructive industry in India, in six months.
The new therapy — regenerative cell-based therapy — is the resurgence of autologous fat grafting and the emergence of cell-enriched fat grafting technique, where a patient's own fat (adipose) is derived as stem and regenerative cells (ADRCs) to be used for the treatment.
“We have already tested this celution system-based cell-enriched fat grafting cosmetic procedures in Hyderabad and Delhi as part of the initial evaluation technology,” said Dr Sudhakar Prasad, Apollo Hospitals.
The celution system-based cell-enriched fat grafting cosmetic procedure is a patented technique of US-based Cytory Therapeutics. This would be used for treatment of neurological problems, heart attacks, facial scars, facial rejuvenation and wound healing.
