The Doctors: Before & After Transformations
On The Doctors, Maria received nose and abdominal reconstruction. Later, Darren had his excess skin removed, while Lisa received treatment for her severe acne. The incredible transformations continued with Darla, a woman who received a stem cell transplant. Let’s take a look at Darla’s incredible results thanks to this breakthrough new procedure.
The Doctors: Stem Cell Transplant Procedure
Darla had a kidney transplant fifteen years ago, and because of all the immuno-suppressive drugs that she must take, her doctors have warned her that she would be at a higher risk for skin cancer. Darla visited Dr Joshua Ellenhorn with a concern about a lesion on her face. After an evaluation, Dr Ellenhorn believed the damaged area to be early melanoma, and that she would be receiving a new procedure called a stem cell transplant.
Darla’s stem cell transplant was performed by Dr Joel Aronowitz, who explained how the procedure works. Firs, stem cells are harvested using a standard liposuction technique. The fat is then separated from from stem cells, which are transferred into a syringe. After the cancerous area is removed from the skin, the stem cells are then injected directly into the wound and the surrounding area. The resulting effects are a quicker healing process and minimized scarring.
The Doctors: Stem Cell Transplant Results
Dr Aronowitz, as well as his patient Darla, joined Dr Ordon to discuss the procedure’s results. Darla was feeling great and said that she was so pleased with how the area has healed. Dr Aronowitz shared some other before-and-after photos of patients who have received stem cell therapy. Even in extreme cases (in one photo a woman had an enormous section of her cheek removed), the stem cells cause very fast and attractive results.
