Regenerative Medicine and Stemcell Therapy We specialize in Regenerative and Transitional medicine. Regenerative medicine is a new and revolutionary field of medicine that involves clinical solutions to heal and repair damaged tissues in the human body due to aging, trauma or disease. The solutions involve using protein and stem cell therapy to promote healing, regulate cellular functions, immunomodulation and regenerate damaged tissue.
Transitional Medicine is a new and rapidly growing field of medicine aimed at accelerating the implementation of new diagnostic and treatment methods, in a safe and efficient way. Those methods would take years to decades to reach the intended patients and communities. Transitional Medicine uses a multidisciplinary, collaborative, safe and evidence-based approach to expedite bench-to-bedside delivery of medical advancement.
