IV Adipose Cell Therapy (ASCT)

What is IV ASCT?

IV Adipose Cell Therapy (ASCT) is an innovative treatment utilising the body’s natural cell regeneration mechanisms to accelerate and enhance healing in systemic conditions and those associated with ageing.

The adipose-derived cell is safer and more easily accessible compared to other cell alternatives. Dr. Peter Lewis and the Surecell team are the most experienced PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) and ASCT doctors in Australia.

What does the process involve?

The doctor will harvest the adipose cells from your belly fat using a liposuction technique. The adipose tissue is then processed to isolate the mesenchymal cells.

These cells are then mixed with PRP and activated under light. Saline is added and the cells are given intravenously in order to reach locations of injury and begin the healing and regeneration process.

How does it work?

The cells promote growth and regeneration by releasing growth factors, which stimulate cells to multiply and form new tissue. 

IV cell treatments often provide improvement in health similar to the usage of human growth hormone.

What can be treated with adipose cells?

General well-being and ageing are targeted using IV ASCT + PRP.

  • Lung damage and inflammation associated with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease

  • Gastrointestinal tissue damage associated with inflammatory bowel disease

  • Injuries from major trauma − Chronic wounds

  • Kidney diseases

  • Diabetes mellitus

  • Cardiac failure

Pre-Treatment Advice

How should I prepare for my treatment?

Where possible, avoid sugar rich foods. Anti- inflammatory drugs (e.g. Cortisone, Nurofen) should be avoided for 2-3 days before and after treatment if possible.

It is essential that you stop taking blood thinners. Dr. Lewis recommends that you stop taking fish-oil and cholesterol-lowering medication a week before the cells are harvested. However this will be discussed in your initial consultation. We also recommend supplements such as Q10 and Vitamin D.

For better results, visit the hyperbaric chamber facility available at our Malvern PRP Clinic (9822 9996).

Post-Treatment Advice

What should I do after my treatment?

Following the IV ASCT treatment, there may be some pain and discomfort in the area of the cell collection during and for a few days after treatment. Improvement is expected to be gradual.

Some patients may experience flushing like a mild flu in the hours following the treatment. Other may also find an increase in sleeping for a few days.

Please note

As Adipose cells are taken from your own body, there are no risks of disease transmission or allergic reactions. Also, as adipose cells are adult cells, there is no chance of the cells causing cancer.
