In May 2012, Dr. Viglione completed the first ever stem-cell fellowship offered in the world. She was one of sixteen to complete the fellowship offered by the American Academy of Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine. In December 2012, Dr. Viglione became one of 700 to receive board certification in Anti-Aging Medicine from the American Academy of Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine. Her education afforded her the opportunity to hear experts on the frontier of stem cell medicine from Universities all over the world. She is familiar with the latest applications of stem cell medicine in humans and in animals.
She is trained in obtaining and injecting platelet rich plasma (PRP) and adult stem cell harvesting from bone marrow aspiration and adipose (fat) tissue. These adult stem cells can then be injected back into various tissues in the body to help regenerate and heal them. Umbilical and amniotic tissue stem cells are now available for purchase and use in the U.S. In the United States, stem cells cannot be grown or amplified outside of the body except in research settings. Fetal cells are illegal. Common uses for stem cells in the U.S are for joint injections and cosmetic procedures.
