Placenta Cell Therapy is a type of adult cell therapy that utilizes the placenta, or afterbirth of a woman who has undergone the child birthing process. This method has been researched for over two decades, but only recently have researchers and scientists understood the impact that placenta cell therapy and treatment has on a multitude of auto-immune and chronic illness conditions and symptoms.
Placenta Cell Therapy does not harm the fetus, the infant or the mother. Placenta cells are gathered from the placenta following a rigorous methodology and protocol according to international normative.
Since the early 1990s, Dr. Gonzalez has studied cell therapy gene therapy and placenta cell therapy technologies from around the world and has treated thousands of patients utilizing placenta cell therapy after having developed a unique method of treating patients on an individualized basis according to their specific condition and symptoms.
Our placenta cell therapy technique involves very small incisions made at predetermined areas of the body. Cell therapy cells are then introduced with a particular method under the skin, where they assimilate and are absorbed into the body, where they are most needed.
Dr. Omar Gonzalez utilizes the latest medical cellular research and technology and combines his multidisciplinary approach to medicine to achieve individual and customized treatments for all his patients.

Depending of the case, but most of the time after the implantation procedure is finished, several injections of a cell preparation are made. The liquid cell preparation is designed to access specific areas with the mentioned biological power.
Low Level Laser therapy is then applied to activate the cell therapys, promote healing and tissue repair of the implanted and injected areas.
A final evaluation of the patient is made, where we make sure the patient is ready to go back to the place where they are staying overnight.
The patients usually go home on the day following the implantation procedure, with some discomfort but with lots of hope for a better and healthier future.

"I had the procedure Tuesday, December 6 2011. Immediately there were positive results, I was able to rotate my right ankle (where I hadn’t been able to before). For the first couple days my bladder had worse issues than before, not emptying well. These resolved back to what I was used to in a few days. The next day after the procedure, I had a headache with slight double vision, an MS symptom I had heard of but never had. But then I started to notice that my face, formerly very stiff on the right side, was starting to loosen up. And my hand, which had been very stiff, was loosening. And my walking was a lot better. And I hadn’t had air hunger since the procedure. I could lift my leg higher, and my foot didn’t drop so much. I had commonly choked quite a bit on liquids, it was much better. I was still getting 6 hours of sleep, but I was encouraged. In the first week I had a headache 3 days out of seven, with attendant issues in balance, heavy body, trouble moving with core muscles. But on the other days I could see improvement. It has now been 9 days. No more headaches, I think that was just the new cells settling in. I have many improvements. ·
Better balance, I can stand up without holding onto anything.
Even walk by myself without holding on to my husband or a cane for a short distance.
Raise my leg enough to get in the truck without moving it with my hands.
My circulation seems to be improving, since my foot and leg aren’t getting so cold and discolored.
I walk better, without as much of a limp.
It’s easier to move in general.
No air hunger, or any kind of trouble breathing.
The color in my face is better, so much that friends have remarked on it (that’s how I know).
I am not in bed all the time but am up and about
I got 7 ½ unbroken hours of sleep last night I am excited to see what the future will bring."
"I`m 51 years old. When I was 32 years (1988)old I was diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome (Glomerulonephrytis Proliferating Type II with a Kidney biopsy). I was loosing a lot of protein in the urine. up to 7,000 mgs of protein in a 24 hrs collection. I was very sick with edema all over my body including my lungs. I took steroid for years like 100 mgs a day. I suppose to be in dialysis and-or Kidney transplant in 4 or 5 more years and my nephrologist bet that that was happening whether I wanted or not.and whether I would do any therapy or not.
Since Dr. Omar Gonzalez was a friend of mine, he suggested for me to start with Term Placenta Therapy in 1992. I started to improve gradually, my urine protein started to decline. My doctors in Houston told me to keep doing what I was doing because I was being controlled with just 5 or 10 mgs a day for years. two years ago I stopped it totally. My doctors are amazed that my blood tests show that my kidney function is normal. My protein in urine is 85 mgs in 24 hrs ( normal range up to 150 mgs). I`m so thankful that I decided to do this technique and to my friend Dr. Gonzalez. I can consider my self cured or at least in total remission. No steroids, normal urine protein, no edema, with my own kidneys that work perfectly. I know it is hard to believe but that is what happened."
"I have always been a fast paced individual with a varied background in management positions. At the age of 35 I began having seizures. I was referred to several facilities and was examined by numerous physicians and have spent many thousands of dollars trying to find a cause, none has ever been found. In 1991 I had a stroke that left me quite limited in my mobility and very limited in my speech pattern. I was in this stage for approximately one and half years. I had to leave my position as Manager of a senior retirement resort, a job that I had held for four years.
In 1993 my husband who had sever arthritis and was in extremely poor health, was referred to Dr. Omar Gonzalez for treatment with needles (acupuncture). After a few treatments for my husband, Dr. Gonzalez became interested in my condition and asked to do a Placenta implant to see if he could improve my condition. I received my first implant and with-in a few days I was amazed at the improvement in my kidney function, my energy level soared, my speech pattern returned to normal with-in three weeks and with-in five weeks I had full mobility of my limbs. With-in 6 weeks I went back to work full time at my old job, Manager of the senior resort where we reside. I was later promoted to Regional Manager and had the responsibility of six Retirement resorts, which required me to be available seven days a week on call twenty four hours a day.
I am seizure free, and was able to reduce my medicine intake in half. I receive a placenta implant every six to seven months and have acupuncture apx. twice a month for over all health. I am thankful to God for placing Dr. Gonzalez in my life, between the two I have the quality of life that I was meant to have. "
"I had been treated for severe arthritis, prostrate and poor health for several years. I was always given strong medication which either gave me little relief and kept my stomach upset. I was also so tired and lifeless that I could only work for a couple of hours and have to rest and the pain was also a great handicap. Patients of Dr. Gonzalez referred me to him to see if I could be helped. I was treated with acupuncture for the arthritis and after three treatment I was able to lift my arms over my head which in its self was a miracle, I had not been able to lift my arm without severe pain in quite a long time.
My skin color was gray and pasty and I had problems with my kidneys. Dr. Gonzalez counseled with me about the placenta implant procedure, he was confident that it would a very positive effect on my condition. At this point in my life I had given up on any hope of a miracle that would improve my health and had resigned myself to being and old man in a rocking chair awaiting my expiration.
The day I had my first implant Dr. Gonzalez could have cut my throat and I could have cared less, he asked me if I was practicing relaxation because of my total relaxed attitude. In less than ten days my kidneys were functioning like my younger days. The gray color disappeared and in its place I once again my skin color was pink and rosy from the improved circulation. With-in a few weeks my sense of well being returned to the point my self confident returned and I was able to continue with my earlier activities such as; riding motorcycles, and flight instruction. The improved texture of my skin hides the fact that I am a very active seventy five year young man.
Needless to say I continue to receive my placenta implants on a regular basis to maintain the optimum health benefits that are received from this procedure. The placenta implant actually saved my life and I have recommended this to all of my friends and all that I meet that are in less than desirable health."
