Treatments: Stem cells found in our body are non-specific cells.
They can easily replicate themselves to form specific cells like heart
muscle cells, blood cells, bone and cartilage, nerve cells etc. to perform
in each of those specific functions. This regeneration property makes
stem cells ideal for anti-aging therapy. Research is now showing
that stem cells can stall the progress of some of these diseases by
replicating into specific cells and replacing the damaged cells in the
body to restore the vitality and functionality of the organs.
The cost of these transplants is not excessive and is considered to
turn back the biological clock by up to 15 years.

Just a few of the Specialists, Surgeries and Procedures available in
Audiologist: A health care professional who is trained to evaluate hearing loss
and related disorders, including balance (vestibular) disorders and
tinnitus (ringing in the ears) and to rehabilitate individuals with
hearing loss and related disorders. An audiologist uses a variety of
tests and procedures to assess hearing and balance function and to fit
and dispense hearing aids and other assistive devices for hearing.
An area of medicine that deals
with the study of symptoms, treatments, causes and risk factors of cancer;
more specifically, the physical, chemical and biologic properties and
features of neoplasms and tumors.
Skin cancer is the uncontrolled growth of
abnormal skin cells. If left unchecked, these cancer cells can
spread from the skin into other tissues and organs. There are
different types of skin cancer. Basal cell carcinoma is the most
common and it develops from abnormal growth of the cells in the
lowest layer of the epidermis. Melanoma, which is less common,
but more dangerous, occurs in the melanocytes (cells that
produce pigment). It is the leading cause of death from skin
disease. Skin cancers may have many different appearances. They
can be small, shiny, waxy, scaly and rough, firm and red, crusty
or bleeding, or have other features. Any such skin abnormalities
should be checked by a physician.
PET, or positron emission tomography scan,
is a nuclear medicine technique using a camera that captures
powerful images of the body, showing its internal chemistry.
Unlike a CT or MRI scan, it can actually detect early chemical
and metabolic changes in diseased states, making it ideal for
the early diagnosis of cancers.
Cardiovascular: Pertaining to the heart and blood vessels that compose the circulatory
Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (Open-heart
surgery) is a surgical procedure to create
bypasses around obstructions in the coronary arteries, most
often using arteries or veins from other parts of the body.
Angioplasty. Procedure performed to
help open narrow areas in the coronary arteries, which supply the
heart with blood. This procedure requires a cardiac catheterization,
during which a small balloon is passed into the artery and blown
up to expand the narrowing.
Cardiac Catheterization is a procedure
that uses a fine tube or catheter, which is threaded from the groin
into the heart. Used with angiography, it is now a primary
tool for visualizing the heart and blood vessels and then diagnosing
or treating heart disease.
Implants. Over the past two decades
the use of dental implants has grown in favor of traditional bridges
and crowns, so much so, that an entire dental sub-specialty – dental
implantology – has made a huge mark on contemporary prosthetic dentistry.
Dental crowns refer to the restoration
of teeth using materials that are fabricated by indirect methods
which are cemented into place. A crown is used to cap or completely
cover a tooth. They are tooth restorations that protect damaged,
cracked or broken down teeth. A crown strengthens your existing
damaged tooth so as to preserve its functionality. Dental crowns
are also commonly known as caps.
otolaryngologist, head and neck surgeon, provides medical and surgical
care for patients with diseases and disorders that affect the ears,
nose, throat, the respiratory and upper alimentary systems, and related
structures of the head and neck. They diagnose and provide medical and
surgical treatment of diseases and have skills and knowledge in audiology
and speech-language pathology; the chemical senses; allergy, endocrinology,
and neurology as they relate to the head and neck.
Cochlear implant: A small complex
electronic device that is surgically placed (implanted) within the
inner ear to help persons with certain types of deafness to hear.
Cochlear implants can help some hearing-impaired people to distinguish
the sounds of language clearly enough to participate in a verbal
environment. A cochlear implant has four basic parts: a microphone,
a speech processor, a transmitter and a receiver/stimulator.
The receiver converts the signals into electrical impulses and sends
them to the brain. Hearing aids will amplify sound, but cochlear
implants compensate for damaged or non-working parts of the inner
ear. Adults who have lost all or most of their hearing later
in life may also benefit from cochlear implants, to help them to
understand speech without visual cues such as lip-reading or sign
General Surgery: A general
surgeon is trained to diagnose, treat and manage patients with a broad
spectrum of surgical conditions affecting almost any area of the body.
The surgeon establishes the diagnosis and provides the preoperative,
operative, and postoperative care to patients and is often responsible
for the comprehensive management of the trauma victim and the critically
ill patient. The general surgeon has the knowledge and technical skills
to manage conditions that relate to the head and neck, breast, skin
and soft tissues, abdomen, extremities, and the gastrointestinal, vascular,
and endocrine systems.
Hip and Knee Replacements: An orthopedic surgeon is trained in the preservation,
investigation and restoration of the form and function of the extremities,
spine and associated structures by medical, surgical and physical means.
Specialized care is provided for patients with musculoskeletal problems
including congenital deformities, trauma, infections, tumors, metabolic
disturbance of the musculoskeletal system, deformities, injuries an
degenerative disease of the spine, hands, feet, knee, hip, shoulder
and elbow in children and adults.
Hip Replacement may be recommended
if you have hip pain that is not relieved by physical therapy, medicines
or exercise. The surgeon removes damaged cartilage and bone
from your hip joint and replaces them with new, man-made parts.
This can relieve pain, and improve both mobility and flexibility.
Knee Arthroscopy is one of the most
frequent procedures for the diagnosis and treatment of knee injuries.
A small telescopic instrument with a lens and surgical attachments
is inserted into the knee through small minimally invasive incisions.
In Vitro Fertilization: IVF is a process by which egg cells are
fertilized by sperm outside the womb, in vitro. It is one of the
best options of assisted reproduction for treatment of infertility,
especially where other methods have failed. Since the first IVF
birth in England in 1978, thousands of children have been born with
great success. With a positive response in patients under 38,
results are approximately 70%. With enhanced technology and
additional attempts, the expected rate of pregnancy is over 90%.

An ophthalmologist specializes in the comprehensive care of patients
with disorders of their eyes and vision. Ophthalmologists are medically
trained to diagnose and medically and surgically treat all ocular and
visual disorders, including prescribing glasses and contact lenses.
These specialists also treat problems affecting the eye and it structures,
the eyelids, the orbit, the visual pathway, and acquired onset of double
vision. Cataract operations and basic glaucoma procedures are
commonly performed by these specialists.
Retinal Detachment. A detached
retina lacks oxygen, which causes cells in the area to die. This
can lead to blindness. If holes in the retina are found before a
detachment occurs, an ophthalmologist can close the holes using
a laser. This is usually done in the doctor's office.
The health care provider injects a bubble of gas into your eye.
You will be positioned so the gas floats up against the hole in
the retina and pushes it back into place. The surgeon will use a
laser to permanently seal the hole.
Cataract removal is a procedure to
remove a clouded lens (cataract) from the eye. The procedure almost
always includes placing an artificial lens in the eye. The
normal lens of the eye is transparent. As a cataract develops,
the lens becomes cloudy and blocks light from entering your eye.
Cataracts are painless. The surgery is performed in a hospital
or surgery center in an outpatient clinic, and adults are usually
awake for the procedure. A man-made lens, called an artificial
intraocular lens (IOL), is usually placed next. It will help improve
Surgery: Plastic surgery encompasses both reconstructive surgery,
which is the reconstruction of facial and body parts disfigured by birth
disorders, trauma, burns or disease, and cosmetic surgery which involves
the enhancement of appearance by reshaping normal structures. Plastic
surgeons specialize in the care of patients requiring repair, replacement,
and reconstruction of defects of the form and function of the body covering
and its underlying musculoskeletal system, with emphasis on the craniofacial
structures, the oropharynx, the upper and lower limbs, and the breast.
Breast Lift (Mastopexy) is a surgical
procedure to raise and reshape sagging breasts by removing excess
skin and repositioning the remaining tissue and nipples.
Facelift (rhytidectomy).A surgical
procedure to improve sagging facial skin, jowls and loose neck skin
by removing excess fat, tightening muscles, and repositioning the
Tummy tuck is a major surgical procedure
to remove abdominal fat and extra skin present in obesity or after
pregnancies. A mini-tummy tuck may be performed in smaller
Stem Cell Regenerative
Medicine: The stem cells found in our body are non-specific cells,
meaning that they can easily replicate themselves to form specific cells
like heart muscle cells, blood cells, bone and cartilage, nerve cells etc.
to perform in each of those specific functions. Stem cells are
used to treat patients with conditions for which traditional treatment
offers less than optimal options. Those conditions include Autoimmune
Diseases, Cerebral Palsy, Critical Limb Ischemia, Degenerative Joint
Disease, Diabetes Type II, Heart Failure, Multiple Sclerosis, Osteoarthritis,
Rheumatoid Arthritis and Spinal Injury. The stem cells are harvested
from bone marrow of the patient under local anesthesia, and are reintroduced
into the body as a transfusion. The procedure does not require
any surgery or special measures. On average, the patient needs
to stay two days in the hospital for monitoring and observation.
