Our Aim is to Make Stem Cells Therapy Affordable, Accessible, and Effective
Stem cell treatment for osteoarthritis in Mexico is a new ray of hope for people for whom conventional therapy has not been successful. We also provide stem cell therapy for rheumatoid arthritis and other forms of arthritis.
Medical Tourism Corporation has teamed up with GIOSTAR in Mexico for making this unconventional therapy more accessible to the North Americans. The latter is a stem cell therapy and research institute founded by Dr. Anand Srivastava, a globally-recognized luminary in the field.
✔ More than 15 years of stem cell research
✔ Founded by leading stem cell scientist – Dr. Anand Srivastava
✔ Dr. Srivastava was instrumental in setting up stem cell research programs at various prestigious research institutes, such as Salk Institute for Biological Studies, San Diego; Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute, La Jolla, University of California, Irvine (UCI); University of California, San Diego (UCSD)
✔ Advisory council members associated with renowned institutions, such as the London Imperial College, UCI, UCSD, and Harvard
Disclaimer: Results may vary.
Our patients have reported the following after application of stem cells for knee repair and other orthopedic problems:
✔ Almost 65% recovery after 1st application
✔ Less trouble walking
✔ Less pain
✔ Improved mobility
✔ 90% recovery expected after 2nd application
We Analyze Each Case Individually
After thorough analysis of the medical report of a case, we formulate a personalized protocol compromising several applications to treat the problem completely.
Complete Set of Applications
While other stem cell treatment providers in Mexico usually do one application initially and then wait for results, before proceeding with another application say six or seven months later, we offer a complete treatment plan comprising three to four applications.
We Do Our Own In-House Research
We are not dependent on outside research and conduct our own in-house investigative work as stem cell is a continuously changing science. As mentioned earlier, the founder of GIOSTAR has been instrumental in setting up research facility at various prestigious institutions around the globe.
We Use Only Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells
Another factor that sets us apart from other stem cell programs in Mexico is that we use only human induced pluripotent stem cells. These are also known as iPS cells or iPSCs. On separation, these are adult cells with limited functions. Using state-of-the-art technology in our laboratory, we reverse the aging process of the cells, and reprogram them to act just like embryonic cells which are pluripotent or master cells. These cells can be further differentiated and assigned specific functions. IPSCs do not have any ethical issues associated with embryonic cells.
Complete Trip Assistance
Right from arranging your hotel stay to transportation, we make sure you have a satisfying experience away from home.
Tijuana is a border city just about half an hour from San Diego, California. Your stem cell therapy in Tijuana, Mexico will be carried out at Del Pedro Medical Center, a state-of-the-art facility which has also received the Certificate of Excellence from the Health Secretary in Mexico.
It is the only hospital in TJ to have received this certification. The hospital is conveniently located just about 10 minutes by car from the San Ysidro border crossing. It features a cafeteria, a beautiful chapel, as well as a pharmacy, besides 24-hour imaging, clinical and pathology labs.
Located in the picturesque city of Guadalajara in Jalisco, San Javier Hospital is the first in Mexico to receive the Specialty Hospital certification.
The hospital features 91 patient rooms (out of which 14 are master suites), 8 intensive care units, and 7 trauma centers. Since Guadalajara has its own international airport, this city is quite accessible for international patients.
Our center in Los Algodones features the latest equipment and an OR to perform any kind of stem cell application.
It is a degenerative disease primarily affecting the knees, hips, back, and finger joints.
✔ It is caused by breakage of the cartilage, which provides cushioning to the joints and a friction-less surface between them.
✔ Breaking down of cartilage can result in:
* Problem moving joints
✔ Further degeneration with passage of time results in bones becoming brittle and developing extra growth called “spurs.”
✔ Chipped off pieces of bones and cartilage may also float around in the joints.
✔ This is followed by an inflammatory response in the body, which may result in development of enzymes and protein; this may further destroy the cartilage.
✔ With further progression of arthritis, the cartilage comes off and the exposed joints rub against each other further damaging them and resulting in pain.
✔ Certain genetic traits
✔ Being overweight
✔ Joint injuries
✔ Repetitive moments, such as in sports
✔ Certain occupations requiring:
* Standing for long intervals
* Repeated bending
* Lifting heavy weights
✔ Other bone and joint disorders such as:
* Rheumatoid arthritis
* Hemochromatosis, a metabolic disorder that results in excess accumulation of iron
* Acromegaly, which results in excess production of the growth hormone
✔ Stem cells hold the power to develop an entire body from an embryo.
✔ They have a unique property to divide infinitely, and can develop into more specialized cell types.
✔ We have the technology to isolate stem cells and re-administer them into the body.
✔ On re-infusing them back into the body, the stem cells populate in the degenerated areas, and change their properties to match those of the resident cells.
✔ After isolating and enriching the viable stem cells, these are re-infused to the body through:
Direct Infusion: In this mode, stem cells are directly administered into the targeted joints.
IV Administration: In intravenous administration, cells are infused through veins. By expanding blood volumes using mannitol, it is ensured that a good number of cells reach the affected regions.
✔ By paracrine signalling (which is a form of communication at cellular level), the cells develop into damaged cartilage and bone, and improve blood flow.
✔ According to many research bodies such as the Canadian Stem Cell Foundation, Mesenchymal cells (MSCs) are flexible enough to differentiate to a number of osteogenic cell types, such as bones, fat, muscles, cartilage, bone marrow, and tendons.
✔ MSCs are known to:
* Calm down the immune system
* Fight inflammation
* Promote development of blood vessel network
* Repair damaged tissue
* Assist in stem cell engraftment
* Cartilage regeneration
We have the technology in Mexico to harness stem cells, and use them to treat arthritis.
