Stem cells have the ability to repair, replace and or restore biological structures and functions that may be damaged due to aging or disease. Stem cell therapy, also referred to as regenerative medicine, is being studied both nationally and internationally in a broad range of diseases. Stem cell therapy is now being used to treat diseases in humans with a large number of studies being published each year documenting success. However, unfortunately for residents of Boston and Massachusetts as a whole, legal stem cell therapy is not currently available. However, in Costa Rica, stem cell treatment is legal, and the Stem Cells Transplant Institute in Costa Rica believes in the potential benefits of stem cell therapy and provides government approved treatments for: Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, cardiovascular disease, multiple sclerosis, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, knee injury, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, myocardial infarction, and critical limb ischemia.
In the United States, medical companies and research institutions in Boston are collaborating locally and nationally to move stem cell therapy and regenerative medicine into clinical practice. The Harvard Stem Cell Institute, Massachusetts General Hospital and Boston Children’s Hospital are evaluating the efficacy of stem cell therapy in many areas including aging and degenerative disease but due to government regulations, progress in the United States is slow. Based on published data, clinics outside of the United States are treating patients with inflammatory and degenerative disease using stem cell therapy. Costa Rica is a leader in stem cell treatment and research.
Dr. Leslie Mesen, founder and CEO of the Stem Cells Transplant Institute, studied medicine at Universidad Iberoamericana (UNIBE) in San José, Costa Rica. Dr. Mesen is board certified in Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine by The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine and receives continuing education courses in both the United States and Latin America. One of the top destinations for medical tourism, Costa Rica offers high quality care at affordable prices. Don’t let aging or disease keep you from attending a New England Patriots game, enjoying a Boston Red Sox game at Fenway Park or attending the latest performance at the Boston Opera House. Let the experts at the Stem Cells Transplant Institute help you stay active and live your best life.
