Stem Cell Therapy Arizona

Stem cell therapy in Arizona is a contentious subject. Several research initiatives have identified improvised businesses that offer stem cell therapy without proper credentials and prepared staff. For example: “One clinic was being run by music teachers who hired naturopaths to do the injections”.

“Just because someone is board certified doesn’t necessarily mean they are qualified to provide stem cell treatments," Frow said. “You really need to ask what they are board certified in and whether their medical expertise is well-matched to the condition you are seeking treatment for.” ASU research reviews unregulated stem cell clinics in six southwestern states

There are also chain-clinics that have received warning letters for the FDA, such as R3 Stem Cell, due to various reasons, including the fact that the presume the ability of being able to teach amateurs how to do stem cell injections with a couple of two-day training sessions:

"The FDA issued a warning letter in 2019 to R3 Stem Cell accusing it of marketing unapproved stem cell treatments. This, in part, due to the dubious claim that, with only a 2-day session, they can train doctors (regardless of their credentials and specialties) to perform stem cell infiltrations. "The 2020 two-day training sessions were available either in person or via livestream, according to R3 Stem Cell website. It said the session could teach doctors musculoskeletal, neurologic, autoimmune, sexual and aesthetic stem cell procedure techniques."

Stem cell Scottsdale

Scottsdale, Arizona, is a major hub of stem cell therapy in Arizona. “Out of 238 clinics found in a Republic investigation, nearly a quarter of them are in Scottsdale.”

Scottsdale, being a city with a median age of 50.1 and a higher than average median income of $86,097 USD per annum, R has generated interest from businesses to offer stem cell therapy. However, a recent investigation found: 

“But in practice, stem cell treatments occurred for years with no federal oversight, an Arizona Republic investigation has found. And, despite claims, some treatments may have contained no stem cells at all. Experts say this lack of oversight also meant there was no consistent way to determine which treatments had been proved effective, or even safe.”

Stem Cell Therapy Arizona Cost

A lawsuit against one stem cell business that operated in many states, including Arizona, claimed that treatment costs ranged from $1,400 to over $27,000. Two stem cell patients in The Republic's investigation paid thousands of dollars for their treatments, and a third stem cell patient paid at least $10,000 for treatments over the course of a year. 

Los Algodones Stem Cell Therapy

Los Algodones, Baja California, Mexico is a small town up north of the country, bordered with Yuma Arizona, where there are more tourists on the streets than locals and, everyone in the city speaks English and, US Dollar has become the local currency. It is a world-renown destination for medical tourism as thousands of Americans and Canadians arrive at  Los Algodones looking for high-quality medical care. Los Algodones is a safe, small-town where there is no public transportation as everything in sight is within walking distance. Border crossing in Los Algodones is quick and safe, thanks to authorities on both sides of the border actively collaborating for an expedited flow of users. In Los Algodones, you will find one of the licensed clinics of Giostar Mexico.

Thanks to the wonders of medical tourism, those interested in taking a stem cell therapy have the option of traveling to Mexico, but why? What benefits are there? These are excellent questions! The main value of stem cell therapy in México is that due to the country’s progressive legal framework, stem cell treatments in Mexico allow for various types of infiltrations (intrathecal, cervical or lumbar, for example) that permit treating conditions such as: arthritis, ALS, MS, autism (to mention a few) much more efficiently. Also, the price of stem cell therapy in Mexico is considerably lower compared to the United States. However, that is not the only benefit about deciding to have stem cell therapy in Mexico. Another very important point is the support and regulation of COFEPRIS (Mexico's equivalent of the FDA), which verifies that all processes are carried out properly for the perfect care of patients.
