Dr. Rogers Centers and our team of multispecialty experts are happy to announce the launch of the Stem Cell Treatment Team of San Antonio, an Affiliate of Cell Surgical Network. We are studying the clinical applications of adipose-derived stem cells and growth factors for degenerative conditions.

What are stem cells?
Stem cells seek out damaged tissues in order to repair the body naturally. They also form new cells, such as cartilage, bone, ligaments, tendons, nerve, fat, muscle, blood vessels, and certain internal organs.
Our team works with non-embryonic adult mesenchymal stem cells. These cells are found in a patient’s own blood, bone marrow, and fat. These cells remain “dormant” unless they encounter an injury and they tend to migrate to the area of need and help to stimulate the healing process.
Embryonic vs. Adult Mesenchymal
Adult stem cells have regenerative properties, which enables an acceleration of a patient’s natural healing process. This study involves the use of adipose (or fat) derived stem cells, in which the cells are found in very high numbers.
It is important to note that embryonic and other “amniotic” treatment methods do not come from the patient’s own body. They are not live cells when used for treatment, as opposed to adult mesenchymal stem cells.
Who can benefit from this study?
The use of stem cells is not FDA approved for any specific disease but is being researched in many degenerative conditions such as:
- Interstitial cystitis
- Erectile dysfunction
- Congestive heart failure
- Orthopedic problems
- Multiple sclerosis
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Macular degeneration
The Cell Surgical Network and Stem Cell Treatment Team of San Antonio believe stem cell therapy to be the likely foundation for regenerative treatment. We are participating in these investigational analyses to be presented to the FDA for consideration of making an actual claim.
Am I a candidate for stem cell therapy?
The first step is to call our office at 210-625-5963 or submit an online contact form to schedule a consultation. You may speak to our Clinical Study Coordinator over the phone or schedule an appointment for a free consultation. Your initial visit may also include a medical evaluation by one of our physicians for this study. All of our stem cell therapy treatments cannot be scheduled until medically cleared by the Stem Cell Treatment Team of San Antonio.
