It’s been a while since I originally published this infographic, which showed all of the medical literature published in the world of bone marrow versus fat stem cells. Since then there’s been an explosion of clinics offering fat stem cells and no shortage of physicians running weekend courses to teach these doctors. I would estimate that we have at least 100 clinics a month adding adipose stem cells to their treatments at this point. Many of those are treating arthritis with stem cells. However, is there good evidence that adipose stem cells work for arthritis? As you can see from the above fat stem cell infographic update, not really. The upshot? We believe in letting what’s published drive our treatment decisions, not what’s available.
