Latest Stem Cell Technology

Latest Stem Cell Technology

CSN Members utilize the latest automated technology to easily isolate personal stem cells from their patients in a sterile surgical setting. Our technology uses a GMP grade collagenase enzyme to safely breakdown the collagen matrix that traps healing stem cells within adipose tissue, making them bio-available to physicians for deployment in their patient.

IRB Approved Protocols

IRB Approved Protocols

CSN’s data has been derived from IRB approved protocols and has resulted in numerous publications. CSN can help members obtain IRB approval on their unique techniques utilizing personal stem cells. By doing this, data collected can later be published and shared to advance the field of personal cell therapy.

Data Driven

Data Driven

CSN Members utilize the Regenatrak Database. By inputting patient condition specific baselines and details from our operation notes, Regenatrak can automatically follow up with patients for a 5 year period, collecting safety and efficacy data. By aggregating, stratifying and analyzing our resulting data, we can spot trends long before they would be apparent in a singular clinic and better advance personal cell therapy.

Operate Connected

Operate Connected

CSN Members can easily connect with specialists in similar practices to them, share case details and make decisions that will best impact the health of their patients. Further, our members, can rely on previously collected data in order to direct their practice and optimize their patients’ healing.


Advancing Cell Therapy Around the World

Who We Are

Cell Surgical Network is an international team of physicians committed to advancing personal cell therapy for their patients. There are over 500 doctors currently participating with CSN, located across 25 different countries, including the USA, Canada, South Korea, Japan, China, the UAE, Turkey, Australia, South Africa and more.

What We Do

CSN members work with autologous adipose derived stem cells, known as Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF). SVF contains mesenchymal stem cells, hematopoietic stem cells, pericytes, and pre-adipocytes, all of which are progenitor cells. When these cells are placed in injured areas, they can pick up local cytokine signals to differentiate, transfer healthy mitochondria, or share cytokine signals, all of which can promote healing naturally, using a patient’s own personal DNA.

Our Technology

CSN’s technology relies on what’s natural in the human body: reparative stem cells, with our patients’ own DNA. We focus on adipose derived stem cells that are largely sequestered from the rest of the body, are 500 to 1,000 times greater in number than compared to bone marrow derived stem cells and are a very young cell. Since adipose has a life span of 7-10 years, adipose derived stem cells generally have very long telomeres (the age determinant of a cell), and thus the adipose derived stem cells from a 70 or 80 year old are actually very young and robust cells that can be used for self-healing.

Who Should Join

Personal cell therapy will one day be a tool in every physician’s tool belt. Stem cells can be used to promote healing in injured tissue and are immunomodulatory. Currently, there is an abundance of studies in the orthopedic, pain management, neurologic, and urologic fields. However, increased research is coming from the fields of cardiology, rheumatology, pulmonology and others, as more specialists learn how stem cells can be applied in their fields.

Why We Do It

Healing. In medicine, the goal is to heal our patients. Stem cells represent a paradigm shift from traditional medicine which looks to stabilize a condition enough that the body can naturally recruit it’s own native stem cell or white blood cell population for self-repair. If we can isolate dormant stem cells in adipose tissue and make them bio-available to our patients, we give them an opportunity to expedite the healing process, something that wasn’t previously possible in medicine.


Advancing Cell Therapy Around the World

The CSN Time Machine is utilized by hundreds of clinics across the country and around the world and to date has been used in tens of thousands of personal cell therapy cases. The Time Machine 3.0 brings a new level of sophistication to the clinical process, providing doctors with a surgically closed system that automatically isolates stromal vascular fraction without the headache of manual intervention, while always prioritizing cell count and viability.

Dr. Berman is a Diplomat with the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology (Head and Neck Surgery). He is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. Los Angeles Magazine has named him one of the Top Doctors in Southern California. Dr. Berman is well known for his work with stem cell / fat grafting to restore three-dimensional volume to the agin face. Fat grafting has led to his work with adipose derived stem cells. He is also known as a pioneer in the use of Gore-Tex materials for cosmetic surgery. He holds a patent on an e-PTFE breast implant device, the Pocket Protector, used to improve breast augmentation surgery. He has also authored a novel – Substance of Abuse – a controversial thriller that suggests a solution to the war on drugs.

Dr. Lander is a Board-Certified Surgeon. He was born in Los Angeles, California. He graduated Magna Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa from Occidental College with a Distinction in Biochemistry, then attended medical school at the University of California, Irvine. For six years after medical school, Dr. Lander studied General Surgery and then Urologic Surgery at the University of California, Irvine. He was a Clinical Assistant Professor of Urology at the same institution while in practice in Orange County for five years. During that time he was active in teaching residents and doing research. Dr. Lander has been elected as a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons.


He has served as Chief of Urology at Eisenhower Medical Center and Chief of Surgery at John F. Kennedy Hospital. He is also an Expert Reviewer in Urology for the California Medical Board. After being on staff at Eisenhower Medical Center for eighteen years, Dr. Lander began clinical research on liposome encapsulated agents for the treatment of interstitial cystitis, publishing an original article on this topic in July 2014.
