Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Treatment in Beijing, China
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is any non-congenital damage which is physically suffered by the brain. Any sort of trauma can induce brain injury, although some injuries are more severe than others, causing bigger damage. The outcome of such injuries can range from complete recovery without any intervention to permanent disabilities and even death, since the brain is the center of basically all bodily functions.
Treatment for brain injury is set according to the severity of the injury suffered. In most cases, the treatment required is minimal and involves rest and occasional pain medication for headaches. However, in more severe cases, therapies and treatments may include medications or even emergency brain surgery. Some cases may even require surgery years after the incident, as brain trauma can leave lasting consequences which may develop over time.
In such severe cases where there is lasting brain damage, there is a possibility of getting a stem cell treatment in order to remove the root of the problem, instead of just focusing on the symptoms. Stem cell treatments for brain injury focus on repairing the cells in the brain that have suffered cell death. These cells have the potential to be repaired by body’s own repair mechanism if those are nudged by the doctors into the right place at the right time. By inserting the stem cells into the right place, they help release cytokines, which are substances that help nourish nerve cell growth, which then work on healing the damaged cells and help them recover more efficiently.
The treatment usually takes one stem cell transplant (two for more severe cases), combined with traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and rehabilitation therapy, and then the patient is sent home to recover. We inject the stem cells/hPRE cells into the brain using stereotactic operation. During the recovery, in cooperation with his physician, the patient’s state is closely monitored to check whether there is proper rehabilitation. Patients usually report improvement for about 6 months to a year, when their symptoms subside and permanent recovery is achieved.
