Stem cells from the cartilage of the ear

Regeneration of articular cartilage by stem cells from the ear

A new method of regeneration

The advantage of this method is in the fact that the patient’s own tissue is used, which means that there is no danger of tissue rejection. Clinical studies on this topic show a significant acceleration of tissue healing and reactivation of healing mechanisms.

Transplantation of one’s own tissue, whether bone marrow or adipose tissue, has so far been a standard part of the stem cell treatment protocol. The continuous development of biomedicine has brought the possibility of regeneration of the cartilaginous tissue of the joints using transplant tissue from the ear area. Using a sophisticated Rigener device, we can create a special cartilage transplant preparation that is then applied to the area of ​​the damaged joint.

With this method we directly stimulate the activation of the regeneration of damaged tissues and the treatment of painful joints. It is a minimally invasive treatment, without the need for liposuction or similar invasive procedures.

The new Rigenera device enables treatments in the following areas:

  • Orthopedics and traumatology of the musculoskeletal system
  • Plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgeries
  • Oral surgery and dentistry

The device works on the principle of mechanical disaggregation, ie fragmentation of biological tissue (skin, cartilage, connective tissue) with the help of special microknives, in order to obtain autologous homologous micrografts in a minimally invasive manner.

Laboratory studies show that the cells obtained by this method contain positive signs of mesenchymal progenitor cells and have an efficiency of over 90%, which indicates their great regenerative ability.

This method of stem cell isolation preserves the extracellular matrix, thus ensuring their own physiological ability to differentiate into other tissue types.


With this new and revolutionary method we treat:

The advantage of this method is that the patient’s own tissue is used without the danger of tissue rejection, which, after all, is proven by clinical studies, which show a significant acceleration of tissue healing and reactivation of healing mechanisms.

This procedure does not require special preparation by the patient and is performed through a one-day operation. There is no need for hospitalization. The patient is discharged from the clinic within a few hours and the treatment is performed using local anesthesia in the area of ​​tissue collection. The improvement of the condition of the joints is visible in a short period of time and is verified by an ultrasound examination by an orthopedic specialist. More information about the stem cells themselves, how and why they are used and what are the benefits of their application, you can find out HERE.
