Cardiovascular & Lung Conditions

Stem cells are known for responding to and healing injury to the body. When the heart has been damaged the normal signal that would be sent for stem cells to respond and form new, healthy heart cells ceases due to lack of blood flow. This results in damage to heart tissue due to poor circulation, eventually resulting in heart failure.

Myocardial Infarction (Heart Attack)

After a myocardial infarction, the heart suffers from permanent loss of heart muscle cells and formation of dysfunctional scar tissue, which severely diminishes cardiac function. Stem cell therapy offers a potential source of myocardial regeneration.

Congestive Heart Failure & Cardiomyopathy (Heart Muscle Cell Dysfunction)

Congestive Heart Failure results when the heart is not pumping efficiently. Since the body depends on the heart to deliver oxygen and nutrient-rich blood, CHF results in fatigue and shortness of breath due to lack of oxygen. This  results in the destruction of millions of heart cells, leading to heart failure. The regenerative capability of stem cells offers hope to regenerate damaged heart muscle and prevent heart failure through mesenchymal stem cells tissue repair.

COPD

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) involves inflammation in the lungs  and causes stress to the heart muscle. Stem cell therapy may provide a reduction in inflammation and improve lung function and decreases stress to the heart, thus improving quality of life.

Asthma

Asthma involves the inflammation and narrowing of airways, resulting in wheezing, chest tightness, inability to inhale and shortness of breath. Stem cells are powerful immune modulators that can reduce inflammation. Current investigations are being made into the anti-inflammatory and immune-modulatory properties of adult mesenchymal  stem cells in treating reactive airways.

frequently asked questions

Find the answers here to most frequently asked questions about Stem Cell Therapy

Are all stem cells the same?

There are two main types of stem cells; adult stem cells and embryonic stem cells.

Adult Stem Cells or Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) are tissue specific. They typically can only generate different cell types for the specific tissue or organ in which they live. These cells are found in many organs and tissues, including brain, bone marrow, blood vessels, skeletal muscle, skin, teeth, heart, gut, liver and the reproductive organs.

Embryonic Stem Cells are derived from blastocysts created by in vitro fertilization (IVF) for assisted reproduction that were no longer needed. Because these kind of stem cells are undifferentiated and unspecialized, they can give rise to every type of cell in the body.  It is not legal in this country to use this type of cell on humans as there is a great health risk associated with the use of this type of cell including Cancer.

Is Stem Cell Therapy cost effective?

Yes, Stem cell Therapy is less expensive than surgery.

How safe is Stem Cell Therapy?

Stem Cell Therapy is an outpatient procedure with minimal complications. A less aggressive alternative to surgery with no scarring OR NEGATIVE SIDE EFFECTS.

Is Stem Cell Therapy natural?

Yes, PRP and Stem Cell grafts are taken from your own body or placental allograft.

How about recovery time?

Recovery time is shorter compared to surgery. Usually pain diminishes in about seven to ten days. Motion increases recovery and is encouraged.

How long will take the procedure?

The procedure is completed in the office, usually between 1-2 hours.

What is unique about the application of Stem Cell Therapy?

Certain conditions that do not respond to traditional medical treatment can often respond to “Regenerative Therapies”
