A stromal vascular fraction is a combination of ADSCs (adipose-derived stem cells), endothelial precursor cells (EPCs), endothelial cells (ECs), macrophages, smooth muscle cells, lymphocytes, pericytes, and pre-adipocytes

Autologous SVF is extracted from and injected into the same patient using a nanoliopsuction technique and is commonly used in cosmetic procedures as a natural and effective alternative to fillers

In recent years studies have shown SVF to be both effective and safe in reducing joint pain resulting from osteoarthritis. Other studies take it a step further and have concluded that SVF  intra-articular injection not only reduces pain but also can improve function, and repair cartilage defects in patients with osteoarthritis.

These studies have changed the outlook of treatment protocols for osteoarthritis that for years could only offer medications, physiotherapy, and finally joint replacement. Now Autologous SVF treatment is proving to ultimately promote the restructuring and regeneration of damaged tissues and should therefore be implemented as a treatment option for symptomatic osteoarthritis
