The other day a friend asked me what my New Year’s resolution was. When I told her “communicate better,” she gave me the kind of look that says “There are SO many other things you should be working on!”
I can’t blame my friend—she has the kind of profession that everyone understands. At parties, when people ask her what she does, she says she’s a lawyer and the questions stop there. Me? I tell people I work with stem cells and they follow me for the rest of the evening asking questions. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind the questions. It’s just that I keep assuming that people know about my field when, in reality, there’s a tremendous amount of misinformation that people have to sort through.
Anyway, I’m writing this on New Year’s Day and I need to get to work on my resolution, so let’s take a few minutes to go over what stem cells are, what they can and cannot do, and what treatments are available. First of all, stem cells are just a special type of cell that can transform itself into a different type of cell. In embryos, stem cells become the various cells that make up the body; in adults, stem cells take care of the damage repair and cell turnover that keeps us going.
2018: A Very Successful Year at Stem Cell Miami
By: Ingrid Machado
CFO of Stem Cell Miami
As 2018 is coming to an end, we are extremely happy to report that throughout this entire year we have seen exceptional results in the clinical application of our signature Regenerative Medicine Treatments at our acclaimed Stem Cell Miami Institute with now over 8000 procedures successfully completed up to date!
In 2018, not only did we continue to successfully increase the number of autologous Stem Cell Procedures conducted, but we also surpassed our PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) applications, as well as fully employing our latest addition to our pain relief arsenal: Orthobiologics, a new innovative procedure that does not require any blood extraction or sedation. These new powerful placenta derived products have reliably proven to be extremely effective to control pain with many of our patients and regardless of their age. These new biological products have also been successfully used in conjunction with our premier PRP Treatments to create our signature powerful “cocktail” that has immensely improved overall results to treat a wide range of medical symptoms.

When used in conjunction with our Stem Cells from bone marrow, with Stem Cells from fat, or with any of our seven different PRP Treatments, these new biological products create a powerful “cocktail” that has improved overall results in the treatment of a wide range of medical conditions.
New Stem Cell Treatments for Erectile Dysfunction
By Dr. Martinez-Castrillon MD, Cardiology at Stem Cell Miami
Did you know that erectile dysfunction (ED) occurs in at least 40% in males 40 years of age or older? Unfortunately, it only gets worse from there, increasing in prevalence up until almost 70% for ages 65 and older!
Many would clearly attest that sex is very much at the top of anyone’s life essentials list of things they enjoy most. Research consistently shows that between 80 and 90 percent of men view sex as the most important aspect of their marriage/relationship. Sadly, then we are faced with the realization that once we turn over 40 years old, many start physically having problems in this area. However, It is not normal for so many males to have ED as they age and looking into the latest data about the causes of ED, we have found that more than 84% of ED related issues comes down to vascular flow related problems.
While many will seek the help of an urologist when appropriate, there are a myriad of causes for ED and in many cases, the final common pathway for the large majority seems to be that blood flow into their penis becomes insufficient and re-establishing it improves ED. This is why a cardiovascular specialist might greatly help, since the issue at hand may be about blood flow for most individuals.
