I had not heard of adipose stem cell treatments.
See Stem Cell Rejuvenation Center. The disclaimer on their site says the following,
Disclaimer: Even though our Treatments are done using autologous cells, our Stem Cell Therapies are not approved by the FDA. Stem Cell Treatments are not a cure for any condition, disease or injury, nor a substitute for proper medical diagnosis and care. Again, Stem Cell Treatments are not a cure for any condition, disease or injury, nor a substitute for proper medical diagnosis and care. The information we communicate is not medical advice. It is intended to be used for educational and information purposes only. We do not use collagenase in our stem cell treatment. It’s important for you to do your own research based on the options that we present to you so that you can make an informed decision.
There are some studies by researchers for acute spinal injuries patients and the use of adipose stem cells so I urge all to look those up to inform yourselves.
The Center I referenced above charges $7100.00/treatment. This will be out of pocket.
I found nothing on the net that would indicate the treatment would be useful for Cerebellar Ataxia.
Thank you for looking out for our members, pgillenw. To be clear, Ben's Friends is not offering an endorsement of this treatment. The FDA has some helpful resources for patients regarding stem cell treatments that we encourage all of you to read: http://www.fda.gov/ForConsumers/ConsumerUpdates/ucm286155.htm
