|Stem Cell Treatment for Stroke
Our partner in China operates a privately owned hospital that offers technologically advanced stem cells treatments for an array of neurological disorders. They offer a comprehensive treatment tailored specifically for each patient. They combine advanced stem cell procedures with extensive rehabilitation and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), in order to get the best results possible.
Treatment Using Neural Stem Cell implantation
Our partner has found that neural stem cells have the potential to develop exclusively into cells of the neural system, making them safe and ideal for neurological disorders treatment. Neural stem cells reach the damaged area in the brain and through contact with the body’s existing chemicals; program themselves to grow into the damaged tissue.
Our partner's stroke treatment program consists of one of the following depending on the condition of the patient.
A common and safe procedure, performed under local anesthesia. Upon implantation, neural stem cells travel within the Cerebral Spinal Fluid (CSF) directly to the brain. The treatment program includes 4 neural stem cells injections, or,
Stereotactic brain injection:
A minimally invasive surgical intervention, during which neural stem cells are injected directly into the specific damaged region of the brain. The injection is available only to those who are eligible for the program's strict criteria.
Our partner's hospital has its own stem cell laboratory, where all cells are checked for genetic mutations and an array of diseases (HIV and Hepatitis, etc.). Apart from cells cleanliness, the laboratory on site also assures freshness of the cells provided at the highest level.
Physiotherapy (PT) helps develop, maintain and restore movement and functions lost to the disease. Physiotherapy also triggers the new stem cells into becoming functional, thus aiding stem cell implantation. OUr partner's hospital has a rehabilitation area where patients benefit from daily therapy sessions with experienced professionals.
Traditional Chinese Medicine
Originated in China, Traditional Chinese Medicine (acupuncture, traditional Chinese massage and herbal treatments) is effective in treating a very wide range of neurological disorders. As an alternative form of healing, it combines illness prevention as well as maintenance of general well being, while, providing drug-free pain relief, also improves blood circulation and digestion problems.
Treatment Program and Length of Stay
Our partner's treatment program for Stroke requires a 4-5 weeks stay in the hospital, which includes stem cell implantations, a daily IV of medications, daily physiotherapy, occupational therapy and TCM treatments, accommodation for the patient and 2 family members, daily doctor’s visits and a personal costumer service representative’s services.
