Stem Cell Therapy Cost in USA

People interested in stem cell cost in the world

One of the first concerns when considering stem cell therapy is the cost in the US. This usually varies depending on the patient's condition, but usually has an estimated cost between $5,000 – $50,000 USD.

It must be considered that prices may increase due to cell extraction methods, how many cells are administered, the type of cells, among other factors.

Stem cell transplant cost in USA

In the USA the main therapy consists in autologous cells, which are extracted from the same patient, and this extraction can be done in various ways. Stem cells can be extracted by performing a small liposuction, in the bone marrow and even from the patient's own blood.

It is said to be a transplant because we are taking the patient's own stem cells and applying them again in the place that is necessary. This process is more expensive than normal stem cell therapy and its price ranges between $5,000 – $50,000 dlls. This kind of therapy is perfect for those who live in the USA and are looking for a local alternative.

However, there are also some significant disadvantages that must be taken into account. One of them is that the production of stem cells is reduced as age advances, this means that the amount of stem cells that can be extracted from an elderly person is smaller. Another disadvantage is that if the patient's immune system is compromised in some way, the therapy should not be performed. But the main drawback is that the FDA mainly allows intravenous infiltrations, which limits the range of conditions that can be treated.

Is stem cell therapy covered by insurance?

In the United States, health insurance is a slightly complicated field if we compare it with other countries, since there are certain regulations that the FDA takes into account with some types of treatments or therapies. In the case of stem cell therapy, the short answer is no, it is not covered by health insurance.

Perhaps you are wondering why? The answer is much simpler than it seems, this is mainly due to the lack of awareness about this revolutionary field of medicine. The fact that there are so many types of treatments and applications leads to misconceptions about stem cell therapy. If you want to know more, we have a blog written right here on our site on this same topic, we invite you to read it.

Allogeneic stem cell transplant 

When we talk about allogeneic stem cells, we refer to those that have been extracted from completely healthy donors and have passed a rigorous examination. This opens a panorama of new possibilities for stem cell therapy such as:

  • By having the stem cells cryogenically stored, the patient does not have to wait weeks to be able to start treatment. This means that, should you decide to undergo stem cell therapy, we will be able to receive you as soon as possible.
  • It does not matter if the patient is elder or has an immunodeficiency problem, the stem cells will be ready for application and the necessary amount will always be available.
  • It is allowed in countries like Mexico, where laws and regulations are among the most progressive in the world.

But not everything is perfect. The problem with allogenic cell treatments is that their use is not allowed in the USA, so you would first have to travel to a foreign country. One of the best options is Mexico.

 

Stem cell therapy in México

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.

Available stem cells therapies

Stem Cells are the base cells for every organ and tissue in our bodies. We have stem cells for different purposes all over our body to regenerate tissue as we grow, for example: skin. If we cut and start bleeding, stem cells will differentiate into skin cells that will go to work into repairing that cut. As we grow older, these stem cells stop working as effectively as they once did, and this causes the body to need help to function properly.

  • Allogeneic stem cells: they come from healthy donors between 18 and 22 years of age that are extensively screened in order to assure maximum efficiency as well as safety.
  • Autologous stem cells: they come from your own adipose tissue (fat tissue) or bone marrow.

These are the two types of stem cell therapy available at Giostar Mexico. We mainly recommend allogenic in our medical peronalized protocols, due to the following benefits:

  • Considerably more millions of stem cells our patients receive due to the benign nature of donor stem cells that allow for more efficient and robust cultivation procedures (instead of autologous procedures)
  • Perfect match for patients whose immune system has been compromised. This means that patients with an autoimmune disease benefit from stem cells that are free of the condition that afflicts the patient.
  • All allogenic (donor) stem cells come from healthy donors between 18 and 22 years of age, all previously screened through extensive tests (such as: Cytotoxicity studies, Oncogenicity tests, among others)
  • Diversity of source: autologous stem cells used for therapy tend to be extracted from bone marrow or adipose tissue (fat tissue) through microliposuctions. Allogenic stem cells are obtained through various sources: adipose tissue  and umbilical cord tissue, which scientific studies have identified to better benefit specific conditions.
