Stem Cell Treatment Might Be the Answer to Chronic Rheumatoid Arthritis

Obtaining stem cells is a quick, safe process

To harvest these important cells from our bodies, the doctor will first perform a simple, liposuction procedure to obtain fat from your body. This is usually a very fast and relatively safe process. Most patients don't even need to stay in the hospital overnight to recover. During liposuction, the stomach area is numbed with anesthetic so that you won't feel a thing during the entire procedure. To help relieve any anxiety and stress, patients usually only need mild to moderate sedation as well.
