Suffering with hair loss? New Regenerative Medicine treatments can help!

 

Premature hair loss may cause a decrease in self-esteem and self-confidence. Consequently, there is a growing interest in innovative technology and science that helps not only prevent excessive hair loss but also regenerates healthy hair follicles and restore hair growth.

In the past, the only limited options for hair loss prevention have been mostly the use of topical products, such as Rogaine or Minoxidil and even the use a low-level laser light shown to stimulate hair follicles. However, at Miami Stem Cell® we have new and exciting options to treat baldness via Regenerative Medicine using the patient’s own plasma and /or stem cells. These amazing new treatments use the body’s own natural power to self-repair, restore and regenerate aging tissues, as well as tissue damage, as well as a myriad of other chronic conditions.

Over the last decade, we have treated thousands of patients at our Miami institute, validating several published clinical studies indicating that using Autologous Stem Cells (for more severe cases) as well as Platelet-Rich Plasma, or PRP, can help restore hair follicles, prevent hair loss and increase hair growth by significantly increasing the body’s own regenerative potential.

Stem Cell Therapy has expanded greatly over the past few years, not only in treating many diseases but also to restore aging tissues. These cells are extracted from the patient’s own bone marrow and are extremely rich in multiple growth factors. These stem cells (or PRP which is collected from the patient’s blood) are then re-injected into the affected areas and have been shown to possess tremendous regenerative potential in the process of re-growing hair follicles.

After the initial consultation with one of our Team of Medical Experts, we then conduct a series of blood tests, which depending on the severity of each case, may include hormonal imbalance and Micro-Nutrient testing. This is a comprehensive type of nutritional analysis that measures functional deficiencies at the cellular level. This simple blood test delivers a total assessment of how well your body processes 33 vitamins, minerals, amino/fatty acids, antioxidants, and metabolites, while conveying the body’s need for these micronutrients, which allow the body to produce enzymes, hormones, and other substances which are essential for proper growth, development, and good health. This test will provide the basis of a personalized, functional approach in addressing a broad variety of clinical conditions, including premature hair loss, as well as many other ailments caused by micronutrient related deficiencies.

After reviewing the blood work results, our doctors will then recommend the ideal Regenerative Medicine treatment that would be most effective at tackling the hair loss situation at hand. The treatment with Stem Cells and/or PRP is performed right in our Coral Gables clinic, using minimal sedation and zero downtime for most patients. These innovative treatments are completed in about three hours and are performed by a board-certified physician, experienced and trained in this procedure.

At Miami Stem Cell® our top-of-the-line trademarked Stem Cell Treatment for hair-loss is called “Super Marrow” which has the most powerful concentration of Stem Cells available today. In this ground-breaking treatment, Autologous Stem Cells are extracted from the patient’s own bone marrow and re-injected into the affected area and has shown to be the most effective treatment at battling hair loss with no downtime and/or complications.

Ultimately, when compared to other more traditional hair loss non-surgical methods, we have extensive proof that validates the fact that Regenerative Medicine and particularly the use of Stem Cells and/or PRP, provides tremendous promise to help both men and women concerned about preventing future hair loss and in fact, actually also restoring hair growth.

In conclusion, hair loss can now be optional! However, you need to be evaluated by one of our experts as soon as possible, since the sooner you start treatment (once hair is noticeably thinning) the better. Unfortunately, once hair is completely gone from an area, it is basically impossible to treat and thus, if you are starting to see the signs of hair loss or the beginning of baldness, this is the ideal time to get started with one of our state-of-the-art Regenerative Medicine treatments!

Mesenchymal stem cells in osteoarthritis therapy: a review

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a chronic joint disease that generally occurs worldwide with pain and disability. The progression is slow, and it is mostly diagnosed midlife and often disturbs the knees, hips, feet, hands, and spine. Sex, age, obesity, occupation, and hereditary factors are risk factors that increase the opportunity for OA. Physical examinations involving X-rays and MRI, joint fluid analysis and blood tests are common tools for the diagnosis of OA. Interventions including exercise, manual therapy, lifestyle modification, and medication can help relieve pain and maintain mobility in the affected joints, yet none of the therapies enables the promotion of regeneration of degenerated tissues. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are a promising source for the treatment of OA due to their multipotency for differentiation into chondrocytes and their ability to modulate the immune system. Herein, we review the pathogenesis and treatment of OA and address the current status of MSCs as a novel potential therapeutic agent in OA treatment.

Can stem cell therapies help my chronic back and neck pain?

Discs in the neck and lower back may degenerate, causing chronic back and neck pain. In the United States, 500,000 spinal fusion surgeries and 400,000 lumbar discectomies are performed every year for people who are dealing with chronic back pain due to disc degeneration. Regenerative medicine offers an alternative to surgery, and the innovation provided by stem cell therapies is an exciting new way to help people who are suffering from chronic back and neck pain that are caused by degenerative disc diseases in the neck and back.

Regenerative medicine is a relatively new branch of translational medicine that is focused on helping the body’s own ability to repair itself by regenerating healthy tissue for the restoration of function. Regenerative therapy may involve injecting stem cells into damaged areas in order to help regenerate healthy tissue.

Undifferentiated cells, stem cells hold the potential to be turned into specialized cells that can form a variety of different tissues. Stem cells may be adult stem cells or embryonic stem cells. Since embryonic stem cells come from human fetuses, there are numerous ethical concerns with using them. Instead, adult stem cells are used for regenerative therapies.

Regenerative stem cell therapy involves taking a patient’s stem cells by removing cells from the patient’s bone marrow. After the cells are extracted, it is then centrifuged in order to separate and identify the specific cells that can help to heal the damaged tissue. The cells are then injected into the degenerated disc, which stimulates the regeneration of the disc’s collagen. As the collagen is regenerated in the damaged disc, its function should slowly be restored.

At Miami Stem Cell our signature stem cell procedure is called “Super Marrow” and it is ideal to treat back / spine related problems. For more information, please visit: www.stemcellmia.com

Stem Cells For Cystic Fibrosis Treatment

Cystic Fibrosis: A Brief Overview

Cystic fibrosis is a genetically transmitted disease. It passes down from family members, and many people are born with it, though others don’t show symptoms until later in life. The disease affects the exocrine glands, which in turn causes the body to produce very thick mucus. This substance is normally used to lubricate the body, but when it becomes too viscous, it instead blocks up pathways. These include lung bronchi, intestines, pancreatic ducts, and more. Breathing difficulty and respiratory infection often ensue.

So, what are the symptoms of cystic fibrosis? They include:

  • shortness of breath
  • wheezing
  • persistent, mucus-laden coughing
  • inability to exercise
  • lung infections
  • stuffy nose
  • poor weight gain
  • intestinal blockage and constipation

In recent years, awareness of cystic fibrosis has expanded dramatically. Since the 1950s and 1960s, when research started bringing its mechanisms to light and a number of famous people were revealed to suffer from the disease, it has taken center stage as a source of research and scientific inquiry. Today, doctors are busy diagnosing cystic fibrosis in adults, categorizing it (e.g., delayed onset cystic fibrosis and cystic fibrosis in babies) and determining the causes of cystic fibrosis.

Stem cell therapy for degenerative intervertebral disk disease:

Wenchun Qu, M.D., M.S., Ph.D., is a specialist in physical medicine and rehabilitation and pain at Mayo Clinic’s campus in Rochester, Minnesota. He is currently leading multiple clinical trials evaluating the safety and efficacy of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) in the treatment of low back pain, including a phase III trial of intradiscal allogeneic bone marrow-derived MSC transplantation and a phase I trial of autologous adipose-derived MSC transplantation in degenerative disk disease (DDD). He has considerable experience in translational MSC research and has an established service line providing office-based stem cell therapy for degenerative spinal conditions.

What are the challenges associated with treatment of low back pain, and what novel therapies are currently available?

Treatment of low back pain is challenging for a variety of reasons. Current therapies may not be effective in every patient, and even in those who experience pain relief, the effectiveness of that treatment modality may diminish. For refractory low back pain, available novel therapies include bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC) and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapies for symptomatic facet arthritis, degenerative disk disease and sacroiliac pains.
