Benefits and Treatment for Stem Cell Therapy

What really is stem cell therapy?

During Stem cell therapy, experts use stem cells to treat severe kinds of diseases that do not have any cure or definitive treatment. It is a regenerative medicine that uses stem cells to create living and functional tissues. These cells help regenerate and repair tissues and cells of the damaged part of the body. The stem cells come with properties that can help repair any damaged tissue and regenerate new cells. The stem cells act to repair, renew and restore the functionality of the cells. They can replace the damaged ones with new and healthy cells after the treatment. At NeuroGen Brain and Spine Institute, stem cell therapy is given to the patients suffering from certain medical conditions that are not curable. People with chronic diseases such as autism, cerebral palsy, mental retardation, muscular dystrophy, stroke, motor neuron disease and many more can be treated successfully with stem cell therapy.

Stem cells

Stem cells are the structural and functional units of our bodies. Our body has different types of cells that are specialized to perform certain activities based on their location such as taking in nutrients, providing energy and reproducing. Stem cells are unique and have different properties as they can multiply manifold and convert into any type of cell in the body. The cells present in different organs of the body originate from simpler cells that are not specialized. The simpler cells are known as stem cells.

Stem cells have certain work and functions in the body.

1. The stem cells release certain growth factors that come with healing properties and regenerative effect on dead tissues.

2. The stem cells can increase the blood supply to the damaged tissues which can then heal the tissues and begin the repair process.

3. They have the ability to convert into any type of cell and then start functioning like that cell type.

There are different kinds of stem cells found in the body. They are categorized and used to treat several types of conditions.

Basically, there are broadly three types:

1. Embryonic stem cells:

These cells are derived from embryos which are 3 to 4 days old. They are obtained from the spare embryos in IVF clinics. These cells are used to develop into tissues of different origins. However, they come with several ethical issues and so are not used by NGBSI for treating patients.

2. Umbilical cord stem cells:

These types of cells are procured from umbilical cord that connects the mother and the baby at birth. These stem cells are stored in a stem cell bank and used when needed. However, if they are not stored, one cannot find other ways to obtain them, and so availability can be an issue. It is not being used by NGBSI as well.

3. Adult stem cells:

Adult stem cells are used by NGBSI which are procured from the same patient, from his/her hip bone. They are today most popular for several positive results that they have shown in patients. Besides, there are not any ethical issues with these cells as these are the patient’s own stem cells. They are used as stem cell therapy for treating several kinds of diseases.

Autism Stem cell treatment is also popular due to the great results that patients experience at NGBSI. Stem cell therapy done with adult stem cells has many benefits and is therefore increasingly being given the first preference to treat patients.


Stem cell therapy is a safe and painless treatment, where even the children do not feel the pain. There is no invasive surgery involved or no long stay at the hospital required and these things make it a suitable. form of treatment.
