What is Expanded Stem Cell Therapy? (and how it might help your injuries heal)
Expanded Stem Cell Therapy is another form of regenerative medicine you might be eligible for. Incredible as it may sound, this treatment takes stem cells from your fatty tissue together with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from your blood. Next, we send your stem cells to the Regenerative lab, and their team will expand them over the next two months. Then, finally, Dr Mubark will inject the newly expanded stem cells into the site of your injury. Passionate about sports medicine, Dr Mubark led the way in introducing pure expanded stem cell treatment to New Zealand in 2017. Soon after, Hassan successfully treated All Black Owen Franks, a well-known success story from the treatment. Utilising the latest technology, Expanded Stem Cell Therapy is simply a fantastic treatment and might be available to you if you meet the criteria.
Expanded Stem Cell Therapy could apply if you are experiencing degenerative osteoarthritis of:
- Upper and lower limbs
- Small joints of the hands and feet
- Resistant joints
- Tendons injuries
Naturally, Dr Hassan Mubark will need to give you a personal assessment. But you can easily apply with Regenerative to get the ball rolling. Remarkably, Dr Hassan Mubark says he anticipates between 70 – 90% recovery for most people he sees in his rheumatology and pain management clinics. Also, did you know that we can cryogenically freeze leftover stem cells for 15 years? In the future, this allows you to access the frozen stem cells if needed at a lower cost.
