The XCell-Center, the first privately-owned clinic in Europe to specialize in regenerative medicine using autologous bone marrow stem cell treatments, reports that it is treating its 2,000th stem cell patient. The center operates in accordance with German law and European guidelines and uses several different kinds of stem cell treatments including Neuro-endoscopic Autologous Stem Cell Implantation (NEASCI™), angiography, direct injection, and intravenous injection.
The center, which treated its first patient in early 2007, has a specialized medical team of German physicians including specialists in: neurosurgery, orthopedics, cardiology, radiology, anesthesiology and pharmacology. The XCell-Center reports that patients from all over the world visit the XCell-Center seeking treatment for spinal cord injury, diabetes, cerebral palsy, heart disease, autism, various eye diseases and other neurological disorders like stroke and Parkinson’s. Many of them have experienced remarkable improvements following treatment.
“Now, I am walking like I was before I had Parkinson's and my shaking is more under control,” said Jon Andresen about five months after his treatment. Ritu Giacobbe, the mother of a 13 year-old boy who was first treated at the XCell-Center for cerebral palsy in August, 2008 stated “... we started noticing changes in Christopher’s speech pattern. Until then he only spoke in fragmented sentences but now he has begun talking in complete sentences.”
