February 2017 –
Dr. Tortland has become the first physician in New England, and one of only 20 practices currently in the country, to introduce the revolutionary Aquicell® fat-derived stem cell harvesting system. Aquicell® is an FDA-approved virtually painless liposuction technique for harvesting stem cells and regenerative cells from the belly or buttocks fat. Fat-derived stem cells are increasingly being shown to be more desirable than bone marrow-derived stem cells, especially for people over 40 years old. Unlike other fat harvesting approaches for stem cells, Aquicell® is actually able to extract the cells from the fat matrix. This dramatically increases the stem cell yield, resulting in better clinical outcomes and less inflammation from treatment.
Dr. Tortland has been performing stem cell treatments since 2008 – the first in Connecticut, and longer than most in the country. Contact our office to learn more or to find out if you are candidate for this exciting treatment.
