Baja Medical Therapies & Treatments- general overview & conditions treated
Given their unique regenerative abilities, stem cells offer new potentials for treating diseases such as diabetes, and heart disease. Many medical researchers believe that stem cell treatments have the potential to change the face of human disease and alleviate suffering. The ability of stem cells to self-renew and give rise to subsequent generations with variable degrees of capacities, offers significant potential for generation of tissues that can potentially replace diseased and damaged areas in the body, with minimal risk of rejection and side effects. The following conditions are the subject of stem cell treatments which are currently being undertaken by medical researchers, and are available if medically advisable. Please be aware that in order to determine the suitability of any treatment program and in depth medical evaluation will be required. Also be aware that stem cell treatments are still in the research and experimental stage. We believe that our treatments can be beneficial for many conditions. All conditions are evaluated for treatment on a per case basis. Below is a list of conditions that can be accepted and approved for stem cell treatment by our doctors. Patient testimonials will be provided upon request.
Our stem cell therapies involve the implanting of stem cells into the body via IV (intravenous) or site injection (normally for joint issues). We offer various types of mesenchymal cells, from the umbilical cord, bone marrow or adipose fat. These stem cells can be autologous (originating from the patient’s own tissue) or allogeneic (originating from an outside source, such as umbilical cord tissue).
What type of cells and how they are administered depends on the circumstances of each case.
The period of the patient stay also depends on the circumstances of each case and the condition treated. This can range from as few as 1-2 days or last for weeks. Typically the patient stay lasts for around 5 days. All patients are given a full medical examination upon arrival. The course of treatment also involves other treatments and techniques aimed at ameliorating and enhancing the effect of the stem cell infusion. We also offer a range of other subsidiary treatments that patients can benefit from during their stay- such as physiotherapy and other alternative therapies. Our IV treatments are minimally invasive.
We offer the option of staying in top rate accommodations either in an urban or beach front setting.
The amount of cells infused can vary- although at this time we typically infuse hundreds of millions of cells thru IVs. The state-of-the art licensed laboratories we work with and from whom we source our cells produce huge quantities of cells thru cultivating and expanding harvested cells. Cell expansion is the process of taking cells extracted from tissue, culturing them in the lab and encouraging them to reproduce. The reproduced cells are identical to the source cells, but this process allows more effective treatment with greater numbers of cells. This increases the possibility of a positive result.
Additional visits may be advised and as a consequence frequently patients are advised to return over time for more infusions.
Why go to Mexico for stem cell therapy?
The so called ‘stem cell’ therapies on offer in the US are extremely limited in their scope.
People have been traveling to Mexico for stem cell therapy, amongst other reasons, to receive dosages of hundreds of millions of cells- and thereby increase the chance of a positive result.
Effective stem cell therapies or treatments involving the use of cultivated and/or expanded cells are currently illegal in the US. The FDA prohibits cellular therapies using “manipulated” cells, or cells that have been more than ‘minimally manipulated’. The FDA interprets this as doing anything more than extracting cells from tissue samples and immediately introducing them back into the same patient’s body. These restrictions are why many people travel outside of the US for stem cell therapy, such as over the border to Mexico. While many so-called ‘cellular therapies’ are available in the US, few are legally able to provide effective treatment for those seeking relief. The fact is without the expansion or so called ‘manipulation’ process the cells are simply not numerous, robust, or potent enough to have the desired effect.
Baja Medical, based in Baja California, Mexico, just south of the US border, only uses fully licensed medical professionals and laboratories.
Our treatments, level of service, location and accommodations are second to none in our humble opinion.
This is yet another reason to come to Mexico to be treated by us.
