STEM CELL THERAPY Namibia
Stem cell therapy is widely believed to be the future of medicine and is at the forefront of many advances in medical science. As an affiliate of the Cell Surgical Network, Zoë Healthcare's doctors conduct research on the use of adult mesenchymal stem cells as therapies for various conditions, including degenerative disorders such as motor neuron disease and inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis.
The first stem cell therapy laboratory of its kind in Africa, Zoë Healthcare's doctors have over 5 years' experience in this technique and are constantly kept up to date with the latest advances in this exciting field of medicine.
Often called the body's “master cells”, stem cells are the cells that develop into blood, brain, bones, and all of the body's organs. They have the potential to repair, restore, replace, and regenerate cells in the body. Stem cell therapy involves the use of stem cells harvested from the body to treat various conditions and diseases.MORE
Degenerative, inflammatory and auto-immune disorders can all potentially benefit from stem cell therapy.
Current evidence suggests that stem cell treatment may provide best results in a traumatic neurological injury if administered within 48 hours of the injury, however success is not limited to administration of therapy within this time frame.
Many orthopaedic conditions have an inflammatory component which responds well to stem cell therapy.
There are several applications for stem cell treatments currently under investigation, including applications in the cardiovascular system, urological system, lungs and many more.
