The Quality of the Stem Cells Being Used Makes a Tremendous Difference

Almost 15 years ago, I started working in the field of what is now known as Regenerative Medicine or Ortho-Biological Medicine. In these years, I pleasantly observed how the field has developed and also how the treatments are becoming more and more successful, but this level of success is only guaranteed based on the actual quality of the product being used. Using top quality Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) as well as the Stem Cells obtained for the treatment is of utmost importance for the overall effectiveness of the treatment. Our StemCell Miami institute has had so much success over the years, strictly because we always strive to provide our patients with the best quality Ortho-Biological products.

For example, we have our Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) which is extracted from one’s own blood with a special process and used in cases of chronic inflammations in tendons and bursae (either in the shoulder, hip, knee or foot). As long as the PRP is double-spun on a special PRP machine (like ours), you have a 90% chance of improvement. However, when performed in a “standard” centrifuge, such as those often advertised on television or radio, the effectiveness level drops to only 15%!

INTERNATIONAL STEM CELL CONGRESS

While writing this article, I am currently at the Punta Cana airport in the beautiful Dominican Republic, heading back to Miami after a very successful stem cell congress, where we presented our vast experience in treating painful orthopedic related conditions using our innovative stem cell derived treatments & procedures.

This particular congress provided a full spectrum of stem cell related topics that were very well balanced between presenting a good mix of some basic cellular type science and also discussing about more specific stem cell research results, based (in our case) on real patient’s driven results. I personally conducted several presentations centered on our own clinical application of such treatments and the corresponding outcomes from our own StemCell Miami patient base.

The Irrefutable Success of Stem Cell Treatments

 

In my opinion, one of the hardest things to accept is a new type of medical treatment, particularly when it changes the philosophy, parameters and overall results that we are expecting and basically used to receiving. Stem cells are undoubtedly, no exception to this rule.

Recently, Eduardo K (a Cuban doctor with a master’s degree from the University of Pittsburg in internal medicine and nephrology) brought his wife Maria to our institute, in order to assess the possibility of using stem cells to cure the severe chronic pain in her ankle. A pain so severe, that it was basically hindering her ability to walk and Dr. K also expressed his extreme hesitation & concerns about having his wife be involved in an invasive ankle surgery at this stage of her adult life.

Stem Cells: New treatment option for Fibromyalgia sufferers.

A few weeks ago, I read a thought-provoking article about fibromyalgia and I would like to discuss a bit further about this terrible illness and how Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell treatments can greatly help patients that suffer from this particular medical condition.

Consistent with what was mentioned in this article, fibromyalgia involves a group of symptoms in which generalized pain is predominant and the patients tend to experience pain in multiple areas of their bodies simultaneously, often also accompanied by constant fatigue and even symptoms of depression.

Latest Evolution in Stem Cell Therapy

Recently, I was looking for the meaning of the concept of evolution and found the following definition: “A change or gradual transformation of something.” It is with great satisfaction that we have seen tremendous strides and evolution with our stem cell treatments in our StemCell Miami institute.

The first major evolution at StemCell Miami began almost 15 years ago, progressively implementing the first PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) treatments in our city in early 2004 to treat osteoarthritis in the joints, as well as conducting the first autologous adult stem cell transplants from bone marrow and also from cells derived from fat in 2007.
