Our institute is supported by the Austrian Society for Regenerative Medicine. Our experts are professors in international renowned universities that contribute to the scientific knowledge in the following areas:
Regenerative medicine is one of the greatest medical advances of the 21st century. Also called stem cell medicine, it uses the body´s own active ingredients to restore damaged tissue. For example, thanks to this field of knowledge many patients that where supposed to have a prosthesis because of joint disease will not more required one, as well as many patients after the regenrative treatments are able to reduce or stop the use of medications.
We use patients´own cells derived from the adipose tissue or bone marrow. The cells can be easily obtained under local anesthesia or sedation from the fat tissue or the bone of the patient. We are specialized in selecting the right type and amount of cells according each case in order to have the best outcome possible.
After extraction the cells are processed our patented point-of-care method that fulfills the requirements of the Medical Devices Act and current regulations. With this closed method none of the stem cells are manipulated or modified thorugh additives such as growth factors or chemichals, doing so we avoid dangerous changes in the cells that could jeopardize the security of our patients.
Thanks to new technologies it is possible to obtain and return the stem cells concentrate in the same session. The entire process takes place in an operating room in a sterile environment using a closed system. Following our strict patented process possibilities of contamination are minimal and the highest hygiene standards are fulfill.
Are the stem cells of adipose tissue and bone marrow different?
The stem cells coming from adipose tissue are known to have a high proportion of MSCs (Mesenchymal stem cells). These cells are capable to transform themselves into any tissue includying cartilage or bone, therefore this is the method of choice for several joint diseases.
However, in other diseases such as vascular disease, wound management or paraplegia the cells harvested from bone marrow have being more widely studied and in consequence they have the better scientific supprout.
Our greatest concern is your safety and the guarantee of the best care possible for you according to the latest scientific findings. According to our own experience, the only why to guarantee the best and safeties treatment is to conduct the treatments in a highly specialized medical center. Our process has being proved worldwide since many years in the filed of regenerative medicine, a matter of fact is that our method has being presented in numerous scientific publications and contributions in international scientific congresses.
Yes. We are fully certified by the health ministry as the first facility in Austria allowed to use this procedure outside clinical trials. This is only possible because we are able to offer medical services with a proof of effecttiveness fullfeeling all the government requirements. Furthermore, in our center there will be only specialists working for you and your health.

In IRM, we offer exclusive services through highly specialized medical doctors with years of experience in their field. Due to the broad training of each expert and the interdisciplinary cooperation, we are able to offer you the best therapy possible within the field of regenerative medicine and classical medicine. We understand the limitations and boundaries of both, however we are able to offer a unique service within the European Union in which stem cell specialist and classical surgical medicine are working together in each case. Contrary to what other services offer in which they can provide either regenerative therapies or surgical therapies but not both together.
Our physicians have an immense experience that includes more than 45,000 satisfied patients:
We have also contributed to the international scientific knowledge through several and participation in congresses specialized in Regenerative medicine, safety and quality control during and after surgery.
The Institute for Regenerative Medicine (IRM) is the first Austrian facility to be licensed under the new tissue safety legislation. As a result, we are subject to the strictest possible control by the medical regulatory authorities proving that our therapies are successful.
We have more than 20 years of experience treating patients around the world including world-class elite athletes. Therefore, in addition to our medical expertise we have also a high class of travel and accommodation services.
