100% of the procedures have not caused any cancer.

Teknon regenerative specialists give stem cell treatment for:

  • osteoarthritis
  • disc degeneration
  • osteonecrosis
  • fractures
  • sports traumas.

Stem cell therapy at Teknon is popular among world-renowned athletes. This treatment method speeds up recovery, and as a result, there is no rehab period. Athletes come back to their ordinary life just after the treatment.

The Teknon Regenerative Medicine Institute is among a few medical facilities in the world to have permission to apply stem cell therapy. In 2006, the facility received the certificate from IBGM (Instituto de Biología y Genética Molecular), multidisciplinary center that develops and implements projects for cells functioning and usage.

The process of stem cell therapy at Teknon Hospital

  1. Bone marrow aspiration: a doctor makes a puncture from the sacral bone to take enough material to receive stem cells.
  2. Cultivation of stem cells: specialists grow stem cells for 1 week. Only 1 out of 100,000 cells is the stem one.
  3. The second phase of stem cells cultivation: cells planting for the second time also lasts 1 week.
  4. Freezing of stem cells: Teknon specialists freeze the cells at 100 degrees below zero in the liquid nitrogen. This period may take years until the stem cells become necessary for treatment.
  5. Thawing of stem cells: when a patient needs the therapy, specialists gradually unfreeze stem cells. It takes 10 days.
  6. The therapy itself: doctors make injections with stem cells. The procedure is minimally invasive, performed without any incisions. The lifespan of cells lasts 8 hours, so it is necessary to carry out the therapy within this time limit.

Trends of stem cell therapy at Centro Medico Teknon

Teknon specialists conduct the numerous trials to improve the effectiveness of the therapy. Doctors look for the specific markers to find out what stem cells are more effective and what diseases they may treat.

Today Teknon doctors develop programs to treat such disorders with stem cells as:

  • eye impairments
  • heart diseases
  • spinal cord disorders.
