Urinary Incontinence affects over 200 million people worldwide and while standard medical treatments often provide some symptomatic relief, most fail to target the underlying cause of the disease and/or abnormal condition. Urinary incontinence, also known as involuntary urination, is defined as any uncontrolled leakage of urine and it is an extremely common and distressing problem, which often poses a large impact on the quality of life of those who suffer with this highly bothersome medical condition. The most common types of urinary incontinence “UI”, which usually affect women more than men are: “Stress UI” and “Urge UI” and patients with both problems are defined as having “Mixed” UI. In many cases among post-menopausal women, estrogen production decreases and in some women urethral tissue will also demonstrate some atrophy with the tissue of the urethra becoming weaker and thinner. Stress urinary incontinence is caused by loss of support of the urethra which is usually a consequence of damage to pelvic support structures as a result of childbirth.
This particular type of incontinence is often characterized by leakage of small amounts of urine with certain activities that increase abdominal pressure such as coughing, sneezing and lifting of heavy objects. Additionally, it is believed that frequent exercise and high-impact activities may also cause “athletic incontinence” to develop. Urge urinary incontinence is caused by uninhibited contractions of the detrusor muscle and it is characterized by leaking of large amounts of urine in association with insufficient warning to get to the bathroom in time. Over the past decade, Stem Cell Therapy has shown tremendous promise for a variety of urologic disorders including applications in lower urinary tract dysfunction, ureteral and bladder trauma, urinary incontinence, erectile dysfunction and also even certain renal diseases. In addition, several clinical trials using Stem Cell Treatments have reflected that such therapies can be effective, feasible and safe to perform. Furthermore, certain other clinical studies have also shown that bone marrow, muscle and adipose-derived stem cells have the capacity to provide a degree of regeneration of the urethral sphincter and improve recovery of the damaged pelvic nerves in certain patients.
Despite significant strides in the understanding of the underlying pathophysiology of these clinical conditions, current medical protocols & standard therapies remain lacking in their ability to target these fundamental mechanisms of injury or etiology of disease. Currently, none of the standard therapies focus on halting disease progression and/or reversing the existing physical injury. On the other hand, new Regenerative Medicine concepts have emerged as an exciting means of fulfilling this therapeutic void by restoring and maintaining normal function via direct effects on injured or dysfunctional tissues. Multiple treatment avenues using stem cells for voiding dysfunction, especially urinary incontinence, have been evaluated with several clinical trials demonstrating their amazing potential to restore function via direct effects on the underlying mechanisms that lead to incontinence and/or voiding the dysfunction. Miami Stem Cell® has held the gold standard in the clinical application of Stem Cell Therapies for over a decade and we have now embarked in a new mission to tackle this troublesome condition that affects millions of people with our new signature Stem Cell Treatment for urinary incontinence. This stateof-the-art procedure aims to provide some welcomed relief to the many patients that come to our world renowned Regenerative Medicine Institute from around the globe that suffer with this often hard to treat medical condition.
With that goal, we have procured the expertise of Dr. Emilio Juncosa who is board certified in obstetrics & gynecology and earned his medical degree with honors from the prestigious Yale University School of Medicine in 1984 and then completed his residency at Mount Sinai Hospital Center in 1988.
