We chose to operate our facility in the Bahamas because it is an ideal location for our mission. It is an English-speaking country with highly educated medical professionals, many trained in the US and Europe. The Bahamas is a regulated jurisdiction with a strong focus on safety and commitment to the acceleration of regenerative medicine for patients. As a result, highly effective therapies are available in the Bahamas that are found nowhere else in the Western Hemisphere.
The National Stem Cell Ethics Committee of the Bahamas regulates and reviews each of our protocols. The Ministry of Health’s National Stem Cell Ethics Committee allows and regulates the use of patients’ own stem cells in the treatment of certain chronic conditions. Through an effective partnership with the Bahamian Regulatory Council and the Ministry of Health, we’re able to introduce innovative technologies, reviewed by highly qualified people, requiring hard data to measure the effectiveness of these therapies. Okyanos is proud to be the first cell therapy center in the country to receive Bahamian government approval.
