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.

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.
