Stem Cell Therapy – What To Expect From The Treatment

Stem cell treatments have become the greatest hope for individuals in their fight against chronic and life-threatening diseases. As research and clinical studies suggest, stem cell therapy can help you live longer, enhancing your overall quality of life. However, you might have aftercare concerns before you go for cellular therapy, which is normal.


Our medical team at Life Altering Stem Cell Therapy Institute takes the time to explain the treatment procedure and answer all your questions. Here’s what you can expect before, during, and after the stem cell therapy.


  1. Meeting Your Medical Team For Stem Cell Therapy

Initially, we ask our patients to submit the online application form specifying their health issues, current symptoms, medical history, and other details. This form helps us better understand your health condition and determine your eligibility for treatment. Suppose you are deemed fit to receive stem cells. In that case, we will schedule a consultation with our care team to confirm your diagnosis and explain the treatment procedure, duration, and other critical aspects of the therapy. During this appointment session, you can ask as many questions as possible and clear all your concerns and doubts.


Our medical team includes qualified doctors and stem cell specialists who work closely together and have dedicated years to research stem cells and innovative treatment approaches. They ensure that your cellular therapy experience is comfortable and safe. Our stem cell center in Mexico provides improved patient outcomes with compassionate care and advanced treatment.

  1. Screening For Stem Cell Therapy

Before proceeding with the cell therapy, our medical team will run several medical tests and physical examinations to assess your current health status, determine stem cell doses, and process stem cell administration. These include –


  • Physical examination and analyzing past medical records
  • Blood tests include Complete Blood Count (CBC), Liver function, Sugar, Thyroid, etc.
  • Cardiac examination to test heart functions, such as echocardiogram (ECG) and electrocardiogram (EKG) for cardiovascular disease treatment.
  • Lung function tests for pulmonary disorder treatment.
  • Imaging tests such as X-rays for orthopedic conditions.


Besides the tests mentioned above, our medical team has specific other requirements before proceeding with the therapy to ensure it is right for you. You will be asked to:


  • Abstain use of toxic substances – You must restrict yourself from alcohol consumption and tobacco use before, during, and after receiving the stem cells. Smoking and alcohol intake significantly impact the treatment results.
  • Have a dependable support system – Post stem cell therapy, you will need a supportive caregiver to assist you in the recovery journey.


  1. Type of Stem Cells Use In the Therapy

Being a reputed clinic for stem cell therapy in Mexico, we prefer our patients not to go through the unpleasant experience of stem cell collection from their bodies, such as hip bone or fat. Instead, we rely only on human umbilical cord tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells (HUCT-MSCs). Also, there is a growing body of research evidence that HUCT-MSCs are more robust and effective in various treatments than mesenchymal stem cells obtained from other sources.


Utilizing HUCT-MSCs also eliminates the need to administer drugs like stimulating factors to trigger the production of stem cells in the bone marrow, releasing them into the bloodstream. Also, these cells are immune system privileged because they are fresh cells isolated from the umbilical cord. Hence, the chances of cell rejection are almost nil, and Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA) matching is unnecessary.


  1. Receiving Stem Cells

The stem cell treatment is a minimally invasive procedure and takes a couple of hours to complete the cell infusion process.

Infusion of stem cells – HUCT-MSCs are administered to the patient’s body through intravenous (IV) dip. Stem cells are injected directly into the veins, which travel through the bloodstream to reach the targeted areas and stimulate healing. Other methods of stem cell administration are intramuscular, intraarterial, and intrathecal (lumbar puncture) injections. The stem cell specialist determines the process after analyzing the patient’s physical condition and the type and severity of the disease.

Patient Monitoring –  Our nurse or patient coordinators will monitor you during and after the treatment to ensure you do not develop fever, chills, or sudden drops or rises in blood pressure. Sometimes, patients experience mild side effects, which are nothing to worry about. Some common side effects a patient might go through are nausea, headache, mild fever, fatigue, and shortness of breath.


  1. After The Stem Cell Treatment

After completing the stem cell administration into the body, you must ensure the following things.


  • Take good care of yourself – Immediately after treatment, your top priority should be obeying the post-treatment restrictions set forth by your medical team to speed up recovery. You should rest adequately and make limited movements if you have undergone treatment for orthopedic conditions. Post-care specifications rely heavily on the individual patient case. However, you must ensure no significant inflammation in the areas treated.
  • Stay in a germ-free environment – The first few weeks after the treatment are critical for every patient as there will be an increase in the activity of the immune system. Staying in a hygienic, germ-free environment and wearing masks will ensure no foreign invaders enter your system and disrupt the healing process.
  • Regular follow-ups for at least six months – During your recovery period, communication is vital to ensure we have every update on your health progress. Our regular follow-up sessions help us monitor the improvements post-treatment and also check whether there are any complications. Our team offers round-the-clock assistance to address your emergency needs (if any) and advice and tips to help you recover faster.

  1. Recovery After Stem Cell Therapy

After a few weeks following the therapy, we encourage our patients to engage in light activities to help them recover. Most patients receiving treatment at our stem cell center in Mexico reported minimal discomfort post-therapy. They have resumed their routine after 4-6 weeks. They experience pain relief, a decrease in inflammation, and improvement in body function and mobility after a couple of weeks only.


It is essential to understand that every human body is different so results may vary. Some might experience improvements in symptoms within two to three weeks, while others might notice positive outcomes much later. Also, the body’s immune functions and blood count levels might take six to twelve months to return to normal because of the newly introduced stem cells. Patients are advised to follow doctor’s guidelines and check regularly to ensure a smooth recovery.
