Stem Cell Treatment for Stroke
Our Stem Cell Stroke treatment differs from standard methods by attacking the root cause inside the brain. Stem cell therapy is focused on affecting physical changes in the brain that can improve a patient’s quality of life.
Stem cells are a special type of cell that has not yet dedicated itself to a particular type of tissue. Most cells in the body are specific and local to a certain body part. For example, skin cells always make new skin cells, and brain cells always make new brain cells. Stem cells are not limited in this way. Instead, these new cells will take on the form of the tissue that surrounds them.
Because of this property, stem cells can be effectively used to aid in the repair and regeneration of damaged tissues. This is at the heart of stem cell therapy and is why these treatments can be so effective for patients suffering from Stroke by giving worn-down tissue the proper tools to repair itself, the body can regenerate naturally.
Stem cell therapy has been shown to have beneficial effects in patients whose tissues or organs have weakened or shown signs of fatigue. The weakness and degeneration of these systems can be counteracted or reversed through this treatment. In effect, stem cells invigorate the other tissue and boost the body’s organic functions.
Most post-stroke patients can be helped with Stem Cells from Human Umbilical Cord Tissue or their adipose tissue. Another excellent alternative for patients suffering from Stroke is the administration of differentiated stem cells, specifically differentiated stem cells called Neural stem cells.
What is a Neural Stem Cell?
Neural stem cells (NSCs) have the potential to give rise to offspring cells that grow and differentiate into healthy neurons and glial cells. They are specialized cells, they only regenerate central nervous tissue. Patients respond very favorably, with very significant results.
