The affiliates of the Cell Surgical Network (CSN) are devoted to advancing access and quality care in the area of adult stem cell regenerative medicine in order to help people suffering from a variety of inflammatory and degenerative conditions.
The Cell Surgical Network was founded nearly two years after the formation of the California Stem Cell Treatment Center (founded in 2010). Affiliate members are generally made up of teams of multidisciplinary physicians in order to best assess and provide care for our patients. The Cell Surgical Network emphasizes quality and is highly committed to clinical research and the advancement of regenerative medicine.
Currently, all affiliate members use the same sterile closed surgical procedure to process fat using a mini-liposuction procedure in order to isolate and implant a patient’s own source of regenerative cells on the same day. The source of the regenerative cells actually comes from stromal vascular fraction (SVF) – a protein rich segment from processed adipose tissue. Stromal vascular fraction contains a mononuclear cell line (predominantly autologous mesenchymal stem cells), macrophage cells, endothelial cells, red blood cells, and important growth factors that facilitate the stem cell process and promote their activity. Our technology allows us to isolate high numbers of viable cells that we can deploy during the same surgical setting. While vigilant about patient safety, we are also learning about which diseases respond best and which deployment methods are most effective. CSN employs a clinical research coordinator and an online database to collect valuable data from throughout the network of affiliates. Affiliates have the opportunity to share not only their data, but their experiences thus helping each other to higher levels of understanding and care.
