Only adult stem cells are used in Angeles hospital’s stem cell therapies, and in the majority of cases they are autologous, meaning they come from the patient themselves. This removes any ethical dilemmas and also means there is very little chance of a patient’s body rejecting the cells.
In adult autologous stem cell therapy the stem cells usually derive from the patient’s adipose tissue (fat cells). Stem cell therapy can be applied in a variety of treatments including heart conditions such as congestive heart failure and stroke, respiratory illness such as COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease), joint conditions like osteoarthritis, eye diseases such as macular degeneration, neurodegenerative diseases including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, and autoimmune conditions like rheumatoid arthritis. Patients considering stem cell therapy will be very interested in what their chosen facility is like. Angeles hospital in Mexico is a Stem Cell Center of Excellence with attractive surroundings and friendly, helpful staff. It has often been described as providing a very modern, clean and pleasant setting to the life-changing procedures patients undergo here.
