Stem Cell Therapy for Cervical Spondylosis Abroad
Cervical Spondylosis is in fact an age-related wear and tear affecting the spinal disks in your neck. As the disks dehydrate and shrink, signs of osteoarthritis develop, including bony projections along the edges of bones, called bone spurs.
Cervical spondylosis is a very common condition and it worsens with age. More than 85% of people older than age 60 are affected by cervical spondylosis. Most people experience no symptoms from these problems, but when do occur, nonsurgical treatments often are effective.
Symptoms of Cervical Spondylosis
If the spinal cord or nerve roots become pinched, you might experience:

Stem Cell Therapy for Cervical Spondylosis
Stem cell therapy used in the affected area may reduce inflammation, thereby decreasing nerve compression that causes pain or numbness. Stem cell therapy offers a possible reprieve to reduce the risk of painful self-fusion or surgical interventions.
Advancements in stem cells, with regards to orthopedics, are quickly developing as is research and state of the art technologies. Patients who are interested in stem cell therapy require evaluation and diagnosis by a spine surgeon who can determine if they are a good candidate for this treatment. Not all patients will benefit from stem cell therapies.
Each clinic uses its unique process to harvest stem cells, enhance them and inject them directly to the damaged spinal discs in the neck. The stem cell therapy starts with the physician harvesting the stem cells from the patient’s body. Different types of stem cells can be collected using various sources including blood, fat tissues, and bone marrow. After the collection, the stem cells are combined with various growth factors including human growth hormones (HGH), which act as a stimulate for the stem cells, helping them to stay active while they repair the damage spinal discs in the neck. The stem cells are injected into the patient’s neck, directly into the damaged area of the spine using ultrasound to guide the injection.
How Much do Stem Cell Treatments Cost?
Stem cell treatments in the U.S. in the future are projected to be $25,000-$50,000 depending on the type of stem cell therapy utilized, the disease being treated and the method of therapy, including stem cell transplantation and number of sessions necessary. Prices in China are generally about $40,000 and placenta stem cell treatments in Mexico range about $25,000. Facilities in Central Europe also offer stem cell treatment cycles for substantial savings over projected costs in Western Europe and the U.S. in the future.
Choosing a doctor for Stem Cell Therapy Treatments
Many facilities worldwide offer stem cell therapy, but it's important to locate accredited and experienced physicians who deal with stem cell treatments. Doctors specializing in Stem Cell Therapy should be trained, certified and accredited through country of origin or international accreditation and certification boards and should also belong to organizations or associations of their specialty.
