Visiting Okyanos for Stem Cell Treatment

Visiting Okyanos for Stem Cell Treatment

Okyanos is located in the city of Freeport on Grand Bahama Island, about 60 miles from the US coast of Florida or one short, direct flight from Miami.

About Grand Bahama Island

The official language of The Bahamas is English, and the currency used is the Bahamian dollar which is equal to one US dollar. As a result of this fixed exchange rate, US dollars are widely accepted on the Island.

The Bahamas recognizes European Union-approved medical devices such as the Celution® System used at Okyanos to process your adult stem cells. The Bahamian Government remains committed to providing world class medical care, and as such has passed legislation allowing and regulating the use of patients’ own adult stem cells in the treatment of various conditions.
