Stem Cell Therapy
A stem cell is essentially a â€œblankâ€ cell, capable of becoming another more differentiated cell type in the body, such as a skin cell, a muscle cell, or a nerve cell.
Microscopic in size, stem cells are big news in medical and science circles because they can be used to replace or even heal damaged tissues and cells in the body. They can serve as a built-in repair system for the human body, replenishing other cells as long as a person is still alive.
The treatment procedure:
Bone marrow extraction
Isolation, analysis and concentration of the stem cells in the laboratory
Stem cell implantation
The risks associated with adult stem cell therapy are low. The therapy involves the use of the patient’s own cells, so the risk of rejection is almost nil.
