Stem Cell Application

At Angeles Hospital, we tap into every possible resource to bring you a better quality of life. That includes pioneering work with stem cells, the building blocks of human biology, which we use to effectively treat eleven core conditions at our hospital.

While the world’s greatest scientists continue to make medical breakthroughs with stem cell research, our doctors and technicians are at the forefront of stem cell therapy, applying the latest application techniques to harness the full potential of these cells.

We perform both autologous and allogeneic stem cell therapies. Autologous stem cells come from your own body, so they contain the genetic blueprint we need to replace or rejuvenate unhealthy cells and combat the spread of disease. Allogeneic stem cells on the other hand are donated by adults and provided by biomedical researchers at an international network of labs.

How does it work?

When you undergo autologous stem cell therapy at Angeles Hospital, we’ll start by extracting stem cells from your body. We usually take them from fatty tissue, because the process is easier than extracting bone marrow and because fat contains a much higher concentration of stem cells.

These cells are bursting with potential. They can quite literally turn into any other cell, allowing us to target specific organs and tissues that need regeneration. Once we have your stem cells (or after we receive a donated sample of allogeneic stem cells), we apply innovative biomedical techniques to harness that potential and directly treat your specific condition. Then we use a non-invasive catheter to distribute the cells into your body, where they immediately get to work.

What does it treat?

Stem cell therapy isn’t limited to one part of the body or one type of disease. They can morph into the same cells that make up your tendons, joints, cartilage, blood, eyes, and more. We’re proud to provide scientific options for people who would otherwise suffer with debilitating conditions as their own bodies turn against them. Stem cell therapy allows us to reverse damage, prevent complications, boost immune systems, and pursue a variety of other helpful applications.

We use stem cells to regenerate heart tissue after heart attacks, rejuvenate damaged joints and tendons, and even to multiply the blood cells that your immune system needs to function correctly. If you have any of the following conditions, Angeles Hospital has stem cell therapy options that can help with:

  • Congestive heart failure
  • ST elevation
  • Critical limb ischemia (CLI)
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Lupus
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Glaucoma
  • Diabetic retinopathy
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Degenerative joint disease

These conditions shouldn’t rob you of the ability to enjoy life, and declines in your health aren’t inevitable. Because we prioritize the health and happiness of all our patients, we stay updated with the latest advances in stem cell technology and use non-invasive methods to harvest your cells and maximize their healing abilities.

Is stem cell therapy the right choice for you?

When we identify a patient at Angeles Hospital with a disease that is treatable through stem cell therapy, we always make sure they’re fully informed and have access to alternative options too. However, we know that stem cell therapies have been effective, and we are honored to have the resources and talented staff necessary to carry them out in our facility.
