Autoimmune disorders occur when the body fails to recognize the difference between the self and non-self. When this happens, the body makes antibodies that are directed towards the body’s own tissues, resulting in the immune system mistakenly attacking and destroying healthy tissue. These misguided attacks on the body may cause organ damage and serve as a precursor to auto-immune disease.
Auto-immune diseases affect over 23.5 million Americans and are a leading cause of death and disability. Traditionally, auto-immune conditions have been treated with immune suppressive agents such as steroids, methotrexate, cyclosporine, gold, and more recently infliximab (Remicade). Recent advancements in stem cell research and stem cell therapy practices have shown that stem cells can be used to treat a variety of auto-immune diseases.
Regenerative Cell Institute’s stem cell therapy for auto-immune disorders has proven effective in restoring the health and function of damaged tissue for both improved overall health and disease management. Our stem cell treatments may also help patients who have been unresponsive to typical autoimmune disease drug treatments.
We offer stem cell therapy treatment options for:
Stem cells harvested from a patient’s adipose (fat) have the potential to replace numerous cells within the body. These undifferentiated cells then heal the body by replacing cells affected by the autoimmune disease, thereby sparking a healthy immune system response that regenerates new cells.
After the stem cells are extracted and prepared for injection, they may be administered in one of three ways: intravenously (injected directly into the vein), direct injection (into site needing repair), or joint injection. The selected method of delivery is determined by which delivers the highest quantity of activated stem cells to the area requiring them.
Through innovative stem cell procedures and customized treatment plans, the Regenerative Cell Institutes of Las Vegas, Nevada, and Mason City, Iowa, help patients with a variety of auto-immune diseases and the tissue damage and inflammation that makes these diseases painful and difficult to manage.
With over 20 years of experience, Dr. Santos is a leader in the study, development, and implementation of stem cell therapy for auto-immune diseases. He understands the science behind each stem cell therapy for auto-immune disease and personally evaluates each patient to assess their condition and develop a customized, targeted treatment plan. Our innovative stem cell treatments and therapies treat a wide range of conditions and diseases.
