Stem Cells are specialized cells in our body that are activated once there is any injury or disease and try to restore the normal function of our body. With age their activity and number starts declining but there are areas in our body where their activity and number stays high throughout life. These areas include Bone Marrow, Blood, Adipose Tissue (Fat) etc. As Stem Cell Transplant physicians we collect Stem Cells from these areas and deliver them where they are required to bring that tissue or organ back to normal.
Stem Cell transplant has provided hope for the treatment of many diseases that were thought to be untreatable in the past throughout the Globe. There are almost 100 individual diseases that can be treated through stem cell transplant today and more and more treatments are being added frequently.
