What are stem cells?

Adult stem cells are undifferentiated cells found throughout your body.They multiply by cell division to replenish dying cells and regenerate damaged tissues.
Also known as somatic stem cells, they can be found in juvenile as well as adult humans, unlike embryonic stem cells that are not found in adults.
Scientific interest in adult stem cells is centred on their ability to divide or self-renew indefinitely, and generate cell types of the organ from which they originate, potentially regenerating the entire organ from a few cells. Unlike embryonic stem cells, the use of human adult stem cells in research and therapy is not considered to be controversial, as they are derived from adult tissue samples rather than human embryos designated for scientific research.
Stem cells act as mother cells that have the potential to become any type of cell. Every organ and tissue in your body grew out of a cluster of stem cells early in development.
They are the foundation cells.
Stem cells offer us a tremendous promise to help understand and treat a range of diseases, injuries and other health-related conditions with no chemicals or risk involved.
They are therefore your own power bank of self-healing.

Procedure Step By Step

After comprehensive  examination and review of your case, blood tests & radio-imaging scans are done to establish  a baseline for your pre-existing condition.

This is a same-day procedure, the Consultant will decide which line of Regenerative Therapy is most suited to your case.

The options are,

  • Prolotherapy
  • PRP
  • Stromal vascular fraction therapy

In certain cases it may be a combination of more than one treatment protocol.

For some patients however, the complete protocol is a series of injections in several treatment sessions.

The choice of treatment is at the discretion of the Consultant and is based on your unique case.

Post Treatment

The first day after the treatment, you might experience mild discomfort at injection site which should not be restrictive.

For joint procedures, mild pain in the treatment area may persist for a day or two. This can be alleviated by rest and if needed simple pain killers may be prescribed.
Reviews of your progress may extend up to 6 months following the procedure.
Reviews can be by means of a clinic visits or alternatively for your ease by video / phone call.
You will be asked during the period of follow up to keep an accurate record of your progress to compare to your starting point.
The final outcome of the treatment and extent of improvement varies from one patient to another depending on type and severity of the condition, age, etc…
