The Okyanos Heart Institute was founded to provide a new and more advanced treatment option for patients with chronic coronary artery disease, cardiac stem cell therapy. We are using a European Union approved cell processing device to offer cell therapy treatment in a center of excellence in Freeport, Bahamas by a medical team led by a prominent U.S. cardiologist, Dr. Howard Walpole.
Okyanos Heart Institute is the first healthcare service provider to offer cardiac cell therapy based on the PRECISE trial. This technology has been used in multiple clinical trials to safely and effectively to treat approximately 4,000 people across the globe.
Our cardiac cell therapy clinic is led by Dr. Howard Walpole, a prominent U.S. cardiologist who has done approximately 5,000 catheter-based interventions and 12,000 diagnostic catheterizations in his 25 years of practice.
The Okyanos Heart Institute Medical Advisory Council provides extensive insight on cell biology and the mechanisms of action that these cells have on improving heart function and repairing damage to the heart muscle as a result of a heart attack.
Okyanos Heart Institute is located near downtown Freeport, Bahamas. Our state-of-the-art facility is built to and operated in accordance with applicable U.S. Surgical Center accreditation standards.
