Stem Cell Therapy for Dermatomyositis:
As the stem cells have the ability to multiply and divide into fresh new cells, this treatment is considered as the successful treatment option for Dermatomyositis.
Many research and discoveries in the field of Rheumatology have proved that the stem cell transplant can give significant improvement to the patient with Dermatomyositis.
MedAcess has developed the Stem Cell Therapy program to treat various conditions. During our stem cell treatment, each patient receives 200 – 300 million stem cells. The quantity of the stem cells not only covers daily losses but exceeds them a million times. Thus, the source of the stem cells which is practically lost for the last 15 – 20 years, is recovered and restored. After our stem cell infusion, various organs get rejuvenated and they get renewed because the new and active stem cells completely replace the old and damaged ones.
Advantages of Stem Cell Therapy at MedAcess :
- Zero side effects and rejections free
- Zero risks of Allergic or Immune reactions
- No risk of transmissible disease
- No oncological complications
- Minimum hospital stay
- Long lasting results
