Stem Cells Therapy for Focal Neuropathy

Focal neuropathies, also called mononeuropathy, are conditions in which a single nerve is damaged.

Treatment at the Stem Cells Transplant Institute could help improve the symptoms of focal neuropathies including:

  • Severe pain in a specific area, such as the lower back
  • Pain in chest or abdomen
  • Pain in the eyes
  • Double vision
  • Paralysis on one side of the face
  • Having difficulty focusing your eyes
  • Pain, numbness, and tingling such as what is experienced with carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Weakness

What is focal neuropathy?

Focal neuropathy, also known as mononeuropathy, affects a single nerve and usually appears abruptly. The most common areas affected by focal neuropathy are the brain, torso, hand, shoulder, leg or feet. The damaged nerve can cause weakness, pain, numbness or paralysis. It’s a less prevalent type of neuropathy than autonomic or peripheral neuropathy. Diabetes is the most common cause of focal neuropathy. Cranial neuropathy is a type of focal neuropathy.

Causes focal neuropathy?

The most common cause of focal neuropathy is diabetes. High blood sugar and fat levels in the blood can damage the small blood vessels that nourish the nerves over time, resulting in nerve damage.

How can stem cell therapy improve the symptoms of focal neuropathy?

Mesenchymal stem cells produce:

  • Proteins that support the growth and survival of neurons
  • Angiogenic factors that are essential for the healing, growth, development, and maintenance of blood vessels
  • Immunomodulatory substances that can reverse the damage to the nerves

Intravenus Administration

How Are the Stem Cells Collected?

Our clinic focuses on obtaining healthy stem cells exclusively from umbilical cord blood donors. We collect the placenta once the baby is born, with the parent’s informed consent. Additionally, we follow strict ethical guidelines and collect stem cells from reliable and reputable sources.

How Are the Stem Cells Administered?

Our nursing staff administers the stem cells through an intravenous and intra-pulmonary route. For the most effective outcomes, intravenous administration is preferred.

About the Stem Cells Transplant Institute

Our clinic is located in Costa Rica, which is one of the most popular medical tourism destinations for stem cell therapy. At the Stem Cells Transplant Institute, we have a skilled team of doctors and medical professionals who collect and administer stem cells to treat autism and other conditions. Every patient receives the most cost-effective and top-notch care from our dedicated team.
