The Onwards Medical Breakthrough
Ground-breaking stem cell technique developed to heal fractures and prevent amputations
“A pioneering technique that uses a patient’s own stem cells to regrow bone, heal fractures and prevent amputation has been developed by a Canterbury Christ Church University Professor.”
“The process includes collecting bone marrow from a patient’s pelvis, isolating the stem cells them through a centrifuge machine using a fast spinning motion and mixing them with the specially prepared collagen gel. This mixture is then injected into the fracture site of the bone using minimally invasive surgery. The stem cells regenerate and grow as new bone over a period of time connecting the unhealed fracture.”
