Stem Cell Therapy is an elective regenerative procedure that helps revert disc degeneration diseases and spinal stenosis. Spinal Decompression with Stem Cells and Ozone Disc Therapy is a new and effective treatment for backaches, where the Ozone decompresses the spinal canal by dehydrating the injured disc to relieve pressure on the nerves and the Stem Cells stimulate the body to regenerate new tissue to revert the damage. This minimally invasive treatment is becoming an effective alternative to conventional open spine surgeries because of its higher success rates and fewer complications.
The success of Stem Cell Therapy for Degenerative Disc Disease relies on two major factors:
The technology to isolate Mesenchymal Stem Cells outside the human body, signal differentiation, and implant back in a sterile and optimal environment
The selection of patients that are candidates for Stem Cell Therapy
Below is a typical itinerary for someone getting Stem Cell Therapy for Degenerative Disc Disease with our spine surgeons:
Day 1: Arrival to destination, consultations and lab work – spend night in hotel
Day 2: Stem Cell Therapy – spend night in hotel
Day 3: Follow-up consultation – return home
Stem Cell Therapy for degenerative Disc Disease with our providers starts at $7,500 USD for one-time treatments. If the condition is severe the surgeon may recommend doing more than one session of therapy, in which case we will provide a discounted price for multi-session treatments. Our spine surgeons will provide a no-cost evaluation of your case to determine how many sessions you would need and the specific protocol of the treatment. Simply contact us so we can gather some information about your symptoms, retrieve any medical images you may have, and we will submit your case to our surgeons for review. Once the review has been completed, we will explain in detail the surgeons’ assessment of your case and recommendation for treatment. We can also coordinate teleconsultations with the surgeons so you can further discuss your case and address all your concerns.
Benefits of Spinal Stem Cell Therapy Abroad
Choosing to get Stem Cell Therapy with our spine surgeons has several advantages:
It can save you up to 45% compared to U.S. prices
Highest quality with U.S. Trained doctors in Mexico
Best results mirroring international standardized protocols
Our surgeons offer the latest research, innovation, and technology in the field
Spinal Decompression with Stem Cells and Ozone is usually not covered by U.S. healthcare systems or Health Canada and individuals need to pay out of pocket for these treatments, which can be as high as $25,000 USD. With Health & Wellness Bazaar, traveling to Mexico for Spinal Decompression is safe, easy, and affordable with treatment packages starting at $7,500 with minimum wait times. Aside from the savings provided, Spinal Stem Cell Therapy offers bigger benefits over conventional spinal surgery:
Open Surgery with high risk
Surgical/scar tissue developed
Frequent post-op complications
Medium to long recovery times
In-patient with 3-night hospitalization
75% improvement lasts 3 years
40% of conventional surgeries turn into Failed Back Syndrome
Spinal Stem Cell Therapy:
Non-surgical procedure with low risk
No scar tissue
Little to none complications
Short recovery times
Avoids Failed Back Syndrome
85%- 99% improvement lasts 5+ years
Our medical providers are able to offer such low pricing compared to the U.S. because of the low cost of land, labor, and materials in the destinations where they practice. The safety, quality, and efficacy of the Stem Cell Therapy is never compromised despite the low pricing and the patient experience is well beyond U.S. standards. Currently we have Stem Cell Therapy providers in Tijuana, Monterrey, Los Algodones, and Cancun, Mexico.
The Spinal Stem Cell Therapy Procedure
Our doctors have mastered the technology to isolate the maximum number of viable adult Mesenchymal Stem Cells to treat Arthritis. There are three ways of obtaining these cells from the human body:
Adipose Tissue (Fat Tissue): Fat near the bellybutton is extracted via micro-liposuction and processed to isolate Mesenchymal Stem Cells
Bone Marrow: Blood is extracted from bone marrow near the hip and processed to isolate Mesenchymal Stem Cells
Peripheral Blood: Blood is drawn from arm and processed to isolate Mesenchymal Stem Cells
This minimally invasive and innovative approach not only eliminates pain but also targets the root cause of the problem and promotes a healing process to prevent the pain from coming back. Because of its effectiveness, Stem Cell Therapy is becoming a better alternative to conventional surgery for neck and back pain. This minimally invasive method of treatment involves injecting Mesenchymal Stem Cells and a mixture of medical grade Ozone and Oxygen gas into the herniated and bulging discs. Ozone and Oxygen allow the dehydration of the nucleus pulposus of the disc and, in addition to its analgesic effect, it has an antioxidant scavenger system which is regulated to act as an anti-inflammatory response. These dehydration and anti-inflammatory effects shrink the disc in size to reduce hernias and bulging in order to decompress the spinal cord and reduce or eliminate any pressure or impingement of the nerve roots.
After injecting the ozone inside the injured discs, our surgeons apply autologous Mesenchymal Stem Cells and P.R.P., which turn into chondrocytes and osteocytes to produce and maintain the cartilaginous matrix. Additionally, these autologous biological agents stimulate the fibroblasts in the body to generate collagen and fiber, which, in combination with the chondrocytes, repair the damaged disc tissue/walls. This method is suggested for both prolapsed and intervertebral disc. The procedure is painless and involves injecting a thin needle into the affected disc guided by live fluoroscopy. The patient is given a mild sedation for comfort and only local anesthesia is used, allowing our patients to walk off the surgical table on their own and going back to their hotel/home for recovery.
Depending on the severity of your spine problem you may need more than one session of Stem Cell Therapy with Ozone Discolysis. Our experienced team will review your case very carefully to diagnose your medical condition’s stage and recommend the right treatment and protocol for you. Historically, our providers’ patients have achieved 75% – 99% improvement on their condition within 6 to 10 months after treatment.
Recovering from Spinal Stem Cell Therapy
As soon as the procedure is finished, on average, patients experience a 20%-40% improvement and they are able to leave the surgery center walking and without pain. Our surgeons recommend limiting physical activity and preventing bending or lifting for 3-4 weeks following the Spinal Stem Cell Therapy. This first stage is critical in the success of the treatment as the newly generated tissue must adhere well to the existing structure of the spine. After the week 4 our surgeons recommend beginning stretching and conditioning exercises, which will be provided to you upon returning home from your first session. Improvement continues to progress with a stronger back and as new tissue is generated and, by month 8-10, 75% of patients report 90%-95% improvement.
