Bridging the gap - Stem Cell therapy abroad

Stem cells are young cells that exist in the human body from the first to the last day of life. Stem cells serve as a "repair system", they replenish the human body with essential cells throughout life, constantly dividing and stimulating the healing and regeneration of tissues.

Modern medicine, through ongoing research and clinical trials, proves that stem cell therapy leads to improvement and complete recovery.

The essence of the treatment is to extract the stem cells and transplant them to a patient. Stem cells can be obtained from adipose or bone tissue, spinal cord, or cord blood. There are two types of transplantation:

Autologous transplantation. Autologous stem cells are taken from the patient's bone marrow, adipose and muscle tissues, including mesenchymal (MSC), endothelial (EPC) and hematopoietic (HSC).

Allogeneic transplantation. Allogeneic stem cells from the donor. In the most favorable cases, the blood donor (especially brothers and sisters). The search for donor cells through stem cell banks is also widely used.

Advantages of Stem Cell therapy:
  1. The unique combination is finalized based on doctors' 10+ years experience, aims to maximize the overall treatment results. 

  2. China is one of the first countries that apply Stem Cell treatment, and puhua is one of the first hospitals in China that apply stem cell treatment. 

  3. Puhua is China's top neurological hospital, their team has great advantage in neurological disease treatment. Many medical centers are utilizing stem cells, but don't have good neurological background. 

  4. In most stem cell centers, stem cells are used as a product, like medicine, bought from biological companies. Which means same stem cells are applied to all kinds of diseases. In Puhua, in own stem cell lab different kinds of stem cells are cultured for each single disease.

Safety: Prior to transplantation stem cells undergo a three-step control procedure:  all donors are screened for HIV, all types of hepatitis, syphilis and other diseases; cells are screened for surface antigen; during final stage prior to transplantation cells are checked for potential infection to avoid cellular mutation. Thus we can guarantee that the procedure of stem cell transplantation is safe.

Global Hospitals Network is working with BEIJING PUHUA INTERNATIONAL HOSPITAL, China's leading clinic specialized in stem cell transplantation. The clinic was founded in 1995, is fully licensed to use this technology, and also has its own stem cell bank. Today the clinic occupies a leading position in this area. Specialists working in the clinic have developed many unique methods for stem cells transplantation which are used in various clinics al over the world.

Patient care is our priority. For the most effective and fast communication with our partners and clinics abroad, we have a department of coordination assistance. Our medical advisers team are senior nurses and doctors. Our domestic escorts and coordinators team is accompanying the patients from the minute they set step at their destination, seamlessly bridging language and cultural gaps and ensuring that our patients receive the best travel experience and the finest medical treatment.
