What are stem cells?

Stem cells are a type of undifferentiated cell that are able to differentiate into specialized cell types. Stem cells can be guided into becoming a specific type of cell allowing physicians trained in the field of regenerative medicine to use stem cells to repair diseased or damaged tissue.

Stem cell therapies are expected to bring substantial benefit to patients suffering from a wide range of diseases and injuries. People who might benefit from stem cell therapies include those with Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, spinal cord injuries, diabetes, heart disease, burns, multiple sclerosis, osteoporosis and osteoarthritis.

“A man begins to die when he ceases to expect anything from tomorrow”

What are the benefits of stem cell therapy?

Stem cells have the ability to grow, repair and regenerate any type of human cell or tissue. Stem cell therapy is a medical procedure that uses stem cells to repair damaged tissue from certain diseases or physical injuries. Stem cell therapy can offer relief to patients suffering from chronic pain, difficult-to-heal injuries, and certain chronic conditions.

Stem cells are being used to treat:

  • Diabetes
  • Orthopedic injuries and chronic conditions
  • Wounds
  • Spinal cord injuries and spinal stenosis
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Some neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease and multiple sclerosis

The experts at the Stem Cells Transplant Institute use a patient’s own stem cells to help repair damaged tissue. This type of stem cell treatment helps:

  • Accelerate healing
  • Reduce pain and inflammation
  • Decrease nerve damage
  • Increase collagen production
  • Generate new heart, blood vessel, muscle, liver, bone, cartilage or brain cells

What should you look for in a stem cell clinic?

Stem cell treatments are offered by various medical doctors, doctors of osteopathic medicine and even some chiropractors. Unfortunately, many clinics in the United States, and across the globe are not adequately trained, which can lead to poor results and a waste of money. When choosing a physician in the United States or abroad, it is critical to ensure that he or she has the proper training and certification.

The physicians at the Stem Cells Transplant Institute are board certified by the American Academy of Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine and members of the International Society for Stem Cell Application.

Why choose us?

  • Our physicians are accredited by the American Academy of Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine
  • We collaborate with the leading researchers, laboratories and clinics worldwide
  • Our physicians are members of the International Society for Stem Cell Application, and our CEO and founder, is the ISSCA Chapter Director for Central America and the Caribbean.
  • We utilize cutting edge procedures that mix adipose derived mesenchymal stem cells with platelet rich growth factors to enhance efficacy and improve outcomes
  • We use mesenchymal stem cells from your body’s own adipose tissue. Unlike bone marrow extraction, extracting stem cells from your own adipose tissue will not weaken your immune system.
  • Our physicians are fully licensed to practice medicine and perform stem cell treatments in Costa Rica.
  • Stem cell treatment at the Stem Cells Transplant Institute may be significantly less expensive than similar treatments available in the United States, Europe, Mexico and Asia
  • We promise to treat every patient with care and respect.
  • We promise to do everything within our power to assist our patients and answer your questions thoroughly and honestly.

The mission of the Stem Cells Transplant Institute in Costa Rica, under the direction of Dr. Leslie Mesén, is to provide the highest level of care, using the most advanced technology, so every patient can have the opportunity to experience life changing therapies. Every patient of the Stem Cells Transplant Institute can expect honesty, integrity and personalized care.

We specialize in the treatment of diabetes, osteoarthritis, parkinson's and COPD

Transplanted bone marrow-derived endothelial stem cells delay the progression of ALS

According to a report, published by researchers from the University of South Florida on March 27, in Scientific Reports, transplantation of human bone marrow-derived endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) into mice with similar symptoms of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) helped more motor neurons survive and slowed disease progression by repairing damage to the blood-spinal cord barrier (BSCB).

Could Stem Cells Cure Diabetes?

With proper care and treatment, diabetes is manageable, but no cure is yet available for this disease. Transforming stem cells into insulin-secreting cells may be the answer to finally curing diabetes.

A recent study, featured in the journal Stem Cell Reports, highlights research from the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, MO. The findings could prove to have a significant impact on the future of patients diagnosed with diabetes.
