What is the difference between Stem Cells from fat and from bone marrow?
Both types, adipose and bone marrow stem cells belong to a type of adult stem cell known as Mesenchymal Stem Cells. Adipose stem cells are collected via a mini liposuction procedure. There is an abundance of high concentration regenerative cells found in fatty tissue. The bone marrow cells are aspirated from the hipbone. Bone marrow stem cells have a superior ability to repair and differentiate into ligaments, cartilage and bone. On the other hand, adipose stem cells have far greater regenerative properties to make new blood vessels. This is a process that is essential for oxygen and nutrient delivery to the tissues.
