What is stem cell treatment for arthritis?

Arthritis and arthrosis are the most widespread orthopedic diseases. They damage the joints. Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease that causes the joints chronic damage. Doctors use orthopedic stem cell therapy for joints restoration.

Stem cells are the unique type of cells in human body. Stem cells are multipotent because they are the precursors of all body cells: blood, brain, bone, skin, etc. That’s why these regenerative cells can replace any damaged cell including the joints one.

Advantages of stem cell therapy for arthritis:

  • leads to the damaged joint tissues regeneration;
  • restores the immune system functioning;

  • Umbilical cord stem cells are obtained immediately after the childbirth. 100% is the effectiveness of these cells for the child and 25% for his/her relatives in case of allogeneic stem cell procedure.
  • Bone marrow is the most widespread source of stem cells worldwide. Specialists treat over 100 malignant diseases (blood, neurological, immune, autoimmune, etc.) using stem cells from the bone marrow.

The patient was consulted in this clinic

Normal clinic, did not see anything special. They prescribed good medicines, I felt better. There were also very good translators. It is better to always be insured, because if there is insurance, the clinic offers a 50% discount.

The patient was treated of ovarian cancer

The format is quite simple, everything is accessible and understandable, the doctor is very qualified. I will not say that we talked about clinical studies, there was no definitive information. We are happy, time has been spent, the translator also translated everything correctly. The doctor explained everything popularly, we received an answer to all the questions we asked. I believe that what you are doing is very important and useful for people who need help.

The patient underwent rhinoplasty

Passed online consultation. After the consultation, a treatment plan was created, which we will undergo, further consultations will continue. Online consultation is very convenient and of course there were some doubts, especially when the invoice was billed, because it was a bit confusing, there was only one seal, so I advise you to make the documents more official, so that you would not be so scared to pay for the consultation.
