Procedure Overview

What is the Procedure for Stem Cell Therapy?

Procedure Overview stem cell therapy

After admission, the patient will meet with the attending physician for a complete evaluation. When necessary, consultation with an appropriate medical specialist will follow. All relevant laboratory and radiological examinations will be undertaken as per clinical protocol. Upon review of each patient’s individual medical evaluation, this detailed information will be used as a guide for choosing which type of adult stem cells to use for therapy. Stem cells may be introduced by any number of the following routes: intravenously, intrathecally, intra-arterially or intralesionally. Route choice is dependent upon condition or disease being treated. Stem cells, once introduced, proceed to site of injury via cellular communication.

 

What examinations or tests are performed prior to receiving stem cell therapy?
Blood tests and radiological examinations – germane to each patient’s specific condition – are performed prior to stem cell therapy. As an integral component of each patient’s individual medical evaluation, this detailed information is critical for better understanding the condition or disease.

How long does the patient need to stay in the hospital?
The number of therapy sessions may vary per patient – given differences in personal health and bodily response to the procedure – as may length of hospital stay. While patients seeking deceleration of senescence as a treatment goal will most often spend only 2 to 3 HOURS in the hospital, patients undergoing research protocols for severe injuries or disease (for example spinal cord injury or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) may require several days of hospitalization. The interval between sessions may also vary from several days to several months. This will be discussed at length with the attending physician.
