Parkinson’s Disease

Regenerative Medicine for Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neurological disorder caused by the degeneration of neurons in the area of the brain that manufactures dopamine, a neurotransmitter involved in movement. As dopamine production drops, characteristic tremors and speech, balance, and motor problems develop. The primary treatment for Parkinson’s disease is drugs that replace or mimic dopamine. These medications do improve symptoms, but they do not slow disease progression, plus their adverse side effects increase with long-term use. Curbing the loss of brain cells and halting symptom progression are key goals in the management of Parkinson’s disease.

Stem Cell Research and Parkinson’s Disease

The Newport Beach Stem Cell Treatment Center offers a protocol for Parkinson’s disease  that utilizes the beneficial properties of adult stem cells. During an outpatient process, the patient’s own stem cells are isolated from adipose (fat) tissue–the richest source of adult stem cells–which is harvested by our board-certified surgeon during liposuction under local anesthesia. These cells are then deployed back into the patient’s body via injection or intravenous infusion. This regenerative medicine procedure takes about three hours to complete.

This is a promising approach, as Medical News Today reports, “Parkinson’s Research Breakthrough, Thanks To Stem Cells From Patient With Rapidly Progressing Disease.” (Click here to read more.)

At the Newport Beach Stem Cell Treatment Center, we are committed not only to quality care for our patients with Parkinson’s disease but also to stem cell research and the advancement of regenerative medicine. We are proud to be part of the only Investigational Review Board (IRB)-based stem cell treatment network in the United States that utilizes fat-transfer surgical technology. We have an array of ongoing IRB-approved protocols, and we provide care for patients with a wide variety of disorders that may be treated with adult stem cell-based regenerative medicine. Not all patients with Parkinson’s disease respond to stem cell therapy, and each patient must be assessed individually to determine the potential for optimal results from this regenerative process.Virtual Consultation
