5 THINGS TO KNOW: About Stem Cell Therapy and Parkinson’s Disease
#1: We treat Parkinson’s patients using their own stem cells obtained through a simple liposuction procedure.
#2: Fat is where the most potent and concentrated source of stem cells are found in your body.
#3: The cells are delivered through an IV. Mannitol is given before the infusion to help the stem cells cross the blood-brain barrier and travel directly into the nervous system.
#4: Stem cells can minimize inflammation surrounding the damaged area of the brain. They may improve blood flow and potentially repair nerve damage caused by PD.
#5: Stem cell therapy is not yet a cure for PD. But promising evidence shows improvement in quality of life and slowing symptoms.
