Adipose derived stem cells are mesenchymal cells with the capacity for self-renewal to beocome fat cells, cartilage cells, muscles cells, bone cells and nerve cells among other cell types. Stem cells play a key role in reconstructive or tissue engineering medicine as they have already proven effective in developing new treatments. The use of bone marrow to gain stem cells is invasi
