I've had two stem cell treatments and will be returning for my third treatment to help with rheumatoid arthritis symptoms. As a nurse, the team is very professional and knowledgeable. The clinic is clean and they follow universal infection control practices. I was initially denied due to my advancement of disease which reassured me that they were not out for money. After crying to the doctor and explaining that I'm not looking for a cure but relief of symptoms, it was a go. I noticed a difference in pain issues ten days after treatment. My second treatment got rid of all the swelling and I lost 15 pounds of fluid. I'm not cured and still have moments but the moments don't last for weeks and months and the pain duration, intensity have greatly been reduced. My husband says that my bad days stand out compared to pre-stem cell treatment when I rarely had a good day. I chose progencell for several reasons and cost was a major factor. This clinic doesn't exploit your finances. I compared five clinics worldwide and found this clinic not only to be the best price, but the integrity of this clinic was outstanding. They listen to you and do everything to ensure your wellbeing remains a priority. They took care of all the details like transportation, hotel etc. The area is very safe and the people are amazing! Placidway was key in finding this clinic and I'm thankful that they provide thousands of options.

I had Gastric Sleeve surgery on the 8th of July, 2017. From being met at the airport to the return trip, everything was superb! Marion, my driver was so sweet! He took us to see a village with three castles! Martin, a member of staff who was in charge of seeing that patients get where they are supposed to be and SO much more, was welcoming, friendly and did everything and more to make sure I was taken care of. Martyna was very kind and couldn't do enough to make everything more than okay for me. Their English is excellent which was very helpful. The nurses were lovely, friendly and helpful, too. The cardiologist was brilliant. An intelligent, beautiful lady that exuded intelligence and kindness. She was always there if needed. The surgeon was informative and put me at ease. He checked on me many times after the surgery. Philip is on the admin side of the clinic and answered all of my emails pre- and post-op so quickly and came and introduced himself to us before we left hospital. I can't fault this clinic. I was told aftercare is not limited to three or five years, they are available to us as long as we need them. I suppose the one thing I might suggest is go in cooler weather, July was HOT and no air conditioning!!
