Adult stem cell therapy is a promising new option for patients living with severe, debilitating chronic conditions, utilizing adult stem and regenerative cells isolated from your own body fat.
Your fat tissue contains the most abundant source of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) in your body—a class of repair cells which have the ability to decrease inflammation, repair or replace damaged tissue while stimulating new blood vessel growth for improved blood flow. These cells work not only to target your symptoms, but to address the underlying injury or cause of the chronic condition for lasting healing and relief. Using your own adult stem and regenerative cells, we are able to put your body’s own natural biology and healing capabilities to work for you.
Mechanisms of Cell Therapy
The stem and regenerative cells stored in your body fat could be likened to small “physicians” who diagnose and correct individual areas of the body in need of special attention. Because MSCs have the capacity to detect changes in the body which are causing pain or dysfunction, they respond and communicate with the body’s needs to provide the correct tools needed for healing. These adult stem cells are commonly referred to as “repair cells” for their ability to heal injured organs or body parts, their primary functions being:
- Acceleration of tissue repair
- Stimulation of tissue regeneration
- Decreased inflammation
- Prevention of continued premature cell death
- Stimulation of new blood vessel growth
Re-introducing your own stem cells into an injured area of the body—be it a joint, damaged heart or other tissue—can stimulate new blood flow in these areas while reducing inflammation. Cell therapy enables the stem cells in your body to do their job as tiny little “physicians” in the process of healing.

At Okyanos, we have built our cell therapy center of excellence, standards of service and world-class team around substantial scientific research and clinical experience that shows cell therapy to be safe and potentially beneficial for the indications we treat. We accept only patients we truly feel can be helped with our treatment. It is this level of dedication to responsible medicine with oversight and guidance from some of the world’s leading cell therapy researchers and medical professionals which sets us apart.
Okyanos is fully licensed to operate by the National Stem Cell Ethics Committee (NSCEC) of The Bahamas, and we are regulated under the Stem Cell Research and Therapy Act of 2013. The Bahamas Ministry of Health oversees the following criteria are in place before granting a license:
- Stem cell therapy protocols must have substantial scientific and clinical trial data supporting their safety.
- Healthcare facilities providing the treatment must have Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMP) in its lab as well as the customary and usual requirements for a surgery center or clinic.
We have put a tremendous amount of effort and resources into bringing stem cell therapy to our patients at the highest possible standards of safety, delivery and care. Okyanos treatment protocols are supported by substantial literature, key clinical trials and case reports leading us to see remarkable benefit in a majority of our patients.
