Congratulations on taking the first step to improving your health!
Living with a degenerative chronic disease is a challenge for anyone and their families. Thanks to ProgenCell and their professional medical team, the health of patients with a degenerative disease has improved. Often ProgenCell has succeeded where other treatments have failed.
Because ProgenCell uses stem cells, which are taken directly from the same patient, (autologous adult stem cells) there is no risk of tissue rejection and minimal secondary effects. By using cells derived from Bone Marrow or Adipose (fat) tissue or a combination of both, patients have an opportunity to correct their medical conditions taking advantage of the cell regeneration process in tissues and organs.
According to several studies and confirmed by our experience, these stem cells have the ability to detect damaged tissues, home those tissues and repair them by differentiation into other types of cells such as cardiac cells, bone/cartilage cells, liver cells, nerve cells, etc.
They can also reset the immune system, metabolic and neurodegenerative systems and reestablish organ function. ProgenCell has been successful on patients with organ insufficiency (heart, kidney, lungs and liver) as well as arthritis, multiple sclerosis, macular degeneration, spine and joint problems.
Patients are also using ProgenCell technology to keep their body and organs in optimal condition (also known as Anti-aging or Healthy-aging therapy).
With the highest quality protocols, Progencell uses stem cells directly from the patient (autologous adult stem cells) in order to improve their health. The patient’s medical condition creates the appropriate environment in the body, resulting in a personalized therapy created specially for him.
We offer patients with certain degenerative diseases an opportunity to improve their health through cellular therapy, correcting their medical conditions from the source by regenerating the tissues and organs that are causing the ailments. Since we use stem cells from the patient, this therapy has no risk of tissue rejection, and minimal secondary effects.
We have protocols for numerous diseases. The best results reported by patients are:
Stem Cell For Diabetes
Various Neurological Diseases
Arthritis / Joint Diseases
Progencell is IMBS Affiliated Center of Healthcare Excellence: ensuring professional standards of patient care.
Why Health Tourism in Mexico?
Mexico has become one of the most popular medical tourist destinations for many Americans and Canadians, as well as travelers from other countries.

Treatments & Prices
Adult stem cells are obtained from sources, including bone marrow, cord blood, peripheral blood and others. Because of their properties, each one has particular advantages and disadvantages.
Once the cells are obtained, they can be manipulated and quantified to be implanted in the patient. Contamination and damage of natural cell function may increase with too much manipulation. The possibility of rejection and severe complications post-treatment increases substancially if the stem cell donor is different than the patient to be treated, such as a Graft-Versus-Host-Disease.
Stem cell therapy regenerates cells and specific organs that could be affected by some disease, disorder or degenerative disease. According to several studies, these stem cells have the ability to differentiate into other types of cells (cardiac cells, bone/cartilage, liver cells, nerve, etc.). In addition, this stem cells have the chemical ability to detect damaged tissues, home those tissues, and directly to repair them. This kind of therapy helps to increase the tissue's functionality, resulting in a considerable improvement of a person’s medical condition.
Many patients have improved their conditions with these protocols even where other treatments have failed to work. Other patients are simply interested in keeping their body systems and organs in optimal conditions.
Due to the stem cell research hype all over the world, we recommend you gather as much information as possible in order to get to the right people and to the correct treatment. There are clinics in wich the stem cells are obtained from an unknown donor source and the risks involved could be very high.
Progencell only uses stem cells directly from the patient in order to do autologous procedures. There is no risk of rejection or complications with infusions or extrations on the infusion or on the extraction.
Each body behaves and react differently to treatments. That is why there is no general procedure for all patients. Nonetheless, below we have displayed the conditions with the best results for improvment. We will be adding more conditions to this page as time passes by.
It is necessary to consider that most of the diseases treated are degenerative; this implies that when a disease is not treated with time, the condition tends to get worse. Relatively, obtaining a long time remission is considered a great improvement. To recover health in some degree becomes a high level of success.
Conditions with the best results for improvement are:
o Rheumatoid Arthritis
o Systemic Lupus
o Psoriatic Arthritis
o Sjögren Syndrome
o Diabetes Mellitus
o Cardiac Insufficiency
o Hepatic Insufficiency
o Renal Insufficiency
o Multiple Sclerosis
o Parkinson's disease
o Alzheimer's disease
o Diabetic Retinopathy
o Optic Nerve Atrophy
o Central Retinal Vascular Occlusion
o Retinis Pigmentosa (RP)
Optimistic appearance of cell therapy is not true for all patients. Cases vary in recovery rate and recovery time. Many patients have obtained up to a 90% recovery. There are others in which no substantial regeneration of tissue was shown. However, in most cases studied Progencell therapy brought the patient to remission, stopping or slowing the development of the disease.
Performing protocols with autologous cells, without manipulation gives the body an opportunity to recover its health & vigor using natural agents.
Progencell's procedures are scientifically designed and professionally followed; we have one goal in mind: substantial health improvement of the patient with simple logistics.
We do not suggest that patients substitute their current medical doctor or abandon current treatments. Since this is a long term protocol, if necessary that your current medical doctor continues to follow up on your case.
Information: Our medical experts study your case, your current condition as well as your health history. After a full evaluation it is decided whether or not you are a candidate for cell protocol. A multidisciplinary medical committee studies your case and honestly consider your improvement potential.
After yor case is evaluated, a Progencell staff member will contact you regarding your particular case and potential benefits. We also answer any question you may have about the procedure or the requirements to make it happen.
Plan: Once you have consented, we can begin developing your plan. Because of Progencell's high demand, it is necessary to make an appointment for the procedure at least 2 to 3 weeks in advance. Exceptions can be made when the condition of the patient requires urgent care.
Conditioning and treatment: When your procedure date is scheduled, we will assign you an agent that will become your personal assistant related to our protocol. This assistant will be able to help you with administrative tasks, logistics, planning your stay, communication with the medical staff, etc. Your personal agent will provide you the proper documentation to complete your medical records and will explain the informed consent. In short, we will coordinate all that's necessary for a practical and easy stay with Progencell. The complete procedure – from beginning to end- will take from 3 to 6 hours, depending on the case. During your recovery time you will have access to a telephone, TV and internet.
Depending on your situation, your personal agent can coordinate transportation from nearby airports, and, if necessary, quick border crossing, accommodations, special meals, companionship, entertainment, etc.
Two weeks before the procedure date, your agent will provide suggestions to prepare your body for treatment. These suggestions will include steps to optimize bone marrow stem cell generation and reception of them in your body. Often these recommendations are related to eating and physical habits.
Your agent will be your host at Progencell. Their activities could include the following:
Airport pick up.
Local transportation (for example: Airport-hotel-Progencell)
Companionship if necessary
Contact person 24 hours
Methodology of the procedure
The stages of Progencell's cell protocol:
Here is a brief description of the procedure (only for reference purposes). Before your own procedure takes place, we will provide you with detailed information of each one of the stages. Progencell uses a total quality philosophy, based on international standards of quality in all processes.
Upon your arrival at Progencell, you will be greeted and attended to by our qualified personnel. You will be evaluated by a doctor who will answer any questions you may have, review your medical record, as well as any recent lab work performed in the last weeks. Soon after, you will be taken into an exam room for a complete check up and to record your vital signs. You will be guided to a dressing room to change into a sterile gown (your personal effects are secured). All the following processes are strictly followed under Good Manufacturing Procedures standards (GMP).
You will be conscious throughout the entire procedure, and you will be able to observe the sterile materials being used.
The doctor will desinfect the area for bone marrow extraction and anesthetize the area with a small injection. Once the area has been anaesthetized the bone marrow extraction begins. During the extraction you will NOT feel pain. The extraction generally takes between 15 and 20 minutes. Once complete, the doctor will start preparing the bone marrow by activating the stem cells in a closed system (avoiding any contamination).
The serum canalization will be replaced with the bone marrow infusion; this process takes 15 to 20 minutes. The doctor will take a minimum amount of bone marrow in order to make a target cell count in the laboratory and, if needed, will take another small amount to do one or several injections in other parts of the body depending on the expected tissues to be regenerated. Special injections of stem cells are intended to have direct placement close to related tissues to maximize tissue recovery. Examples of injections are lumbar injection or lymphatic injection, among others.
You will not feel any pain throughout the entire procedure. You will only feel manipulations in the area of sample taking and in the transfusion as well. During the following 3 to 5 days, you will feel a little bruised in the area of stem cell extraction. The discomfort is tolerable nonetheless, pain killers can be administered if desired.
After the transfusion, you will be taken to a patient recovery area where you will be constantly monitored. Some easily digestible foods and liquids will be provided. Usually, you will be able to go home a few hours after the procedure takes place.
A meeting with the doctor will conclude the procedure in order to respond to any questions and to indicate what to expect in the following weeks. Suggestions for your optimal health recovery will be shared. The doctor will provide a prescription if needed and a 24/7 phone number for patient care assistance.
In the next few days and weeks, we will keep constant comunication with you in order to keep track of your progress and to assist you along the way. All of the monitored processes are strictly followed under the Good Manufacturing Procedure Standards (GMP).
