Please contact us to find out. We cannot say it enough. Every case is different. We cannot say yes or no until after we refer you to a treatment facility or clinical trial and you speak to one of their doctors and/or specialists. We want to know your case. We need to learn as much as possible about your medical history to direct you to your best treatment option. Although not necessary, in some cases it might make sense to speak to your personal doctor, we are more than happy to conference with him.
Stem cell therapy holds amazing potential. Novastem currently refers to clinics that are using stem cell therapy in clinical trials to treat stroke, chronic heart failure, and acute myocardial infarction. Within the next year, it is expected they will offer a line of therapies utilizing neural stem cells that have shown to benefit patients with Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, traumatic brain injury or spinal cord injury.
To determine if these therapies might be of benefit to you, Novastem's team will refer you to a specialist who will evaluate your condition and your current treatment. We do not over-promise. In fact the majority of potential patients who call are told that stem cell therapy is not for them. We will only refer patients whom we feel will truly benefit from our therapy. Our recommendations are based on published studies and clinical experience with previous patients in clinics across the globe.
It is critical to make sure that expectations are where they should be. These treatments are not a magical cure all; no such thing exists. We want you to be happy with what you receive. We will not overpromise anything. A critical part of our process is informed consent. With informed consent we tell you all the good, bad, and everything in between regarding our stem cells.
