Types of Stem Cell Therapy available in Mexico

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.

Stem cell injections legally authorized in Mexico

Allowed legal application of Stem Cells in Mexico

  • Intravenous (IV): we inject Stem cells into the bloodstream with mannitol to expand blood volumes in the central nervous system to ensure they reach the affected area.
  • Intrathecal (IT): through this procedure, we infuse stem cells into the cerebrospinal fluid through the subarachnoid spaces of the spinal canal.
  • Local: Stem Cells are directly delivered in the affected area based on the condition being treated.

What type of mesenchymal stem cells are used in Mexico for Stem Cell Therapy?

Types of mesenchymal stem cells for stem cell therapy

Pluripotent Stem Cells

Pluripotent stem cells being used in research today mainly come from embryos, hence the name, “embryonic stem cells”.(1) Giostar Mexico does not use these type of Stem Cells under any circumstances. Pluripotent stem cells have not yet been used therapeutically in humans because many of the early animal studies resulted in the undesirable formation of unusual solid tumors, called teratomas.* Teratomas are made of a mix of cell types from all the early germ layers. Later successful animal studies used pluripotent cells modified to a more mature phenotype which limits this proliferative capacity. Cells derived from pluripotent cells have been used to successfully treat animals.(1)

Multipotent Stem Cells

These cells have the plasticity to become all the progenitor cells for a particular germ layer or can be restricted to become only one or two specialized cell types of a particular tissue. Giostar Mexico implements Multipotent Mesenchymal Stem Cells in patients’ treatments, be it allogenic or autologous. Multipotent stem cells found in bone marrow are best known, because these have been used therapeutically since the 1960’s(2). Recent research has found new sources for multipotent stem cells of greater plasticity such as the placenta and umbilical cord blood (3). Further, the heart, until recently considered void of stem cells, is now known to contain stem cells with the potential to become cardiac myocytes. (4) Similarly, neuro-progenitor cells have been found within the brain. (5)

Value of stem cell therapy in Mexico

Due to advanced legislation, Mexico enjoys a progressive legal framework that allows applications otherwise unavailable in countries such as the US or Canada. For example: local direct applications at hands, shoulders, knees, are prohibited in some states of the US or, where allowed, limited to autologous stem cells (patient's own, which require a previous minor liposuction surgery and need up to 1 month for cultivation of stem cells in laboratory); lumbar and cervical applications, as well as Intrathecal (IT) applications, which have demonstrated better results for patients with spinal cord injury, ALS and MS, among other conditions, are banned in the US and Canada.

Also, Mexico has been a regular great option for cost effective treatments that are considerably expensive in countries such as US and Canada(6), and a popular destination for Medical Tourism patients.(7)

Treatable conditions with stem cell therapy

At Giostar Mexico, we receive patients from all over the world, mainly catering to patients from Canada and the US who come to receive treatment for diverse conditions. Among them, we treat:

Average price of stem cell therapy in Mexico

When it comes to pricing, it is common for our patients to begin their questions with: how much does a stem cell injection cost? Gladly, we clarify that, depending on the condition to be treated, the number of IV and Local applications will vary. Also, we do not charge our patients per injection; rather, all of our prices vary according to the number of vials included in the personalized protocol each patient receives from our medical directors, who in turn consult with Dr. Anand Srivastava (our Chief Scientist Officer and Co-Founder).

Also, it is important to consider that treatment price may vary according to the specific interest each patient presents. We take into account the personal choices of patients regarding type of mesenchymal stem cell to be used (umbilical cord or adipose tissue), and if our medical directors determine that the treatment’s results will not be compromised, the patient selects the type of donor mesenchymal stem cells to receive. So, as you can see, the cost of stem cell therapy will greatly depend on what you decide! On average, Stem Cell Therapy in Mexico with Giostar starts at $8,500.00 USD for one application (half-treatment). Pricing highly depends on the personalized protocol that the Medical Director determines based on each patient's condition.

What may an average stem cell treatment include?

  • (Transportation from hotel-clinic, clinic-hotel and airport-hotel as well as hotel-airport (mainly for our Clinics in Playa del Carmen and Guadalajara; our Clinic in Los Algodones, due to its proximity to the US-Mexico border crossing, we pick up patients on the border and take them to our clinic or their hotel)
  • Lodging (included in our Clinic in Algodones; lodging in Guadalajara and Playa del Carmen are paid by the patient)
  • Oxygen Therapy
  • Body preparation – Nutritional IV Therapy
  • 1 - 10 billion exosomes (volume depends on Doctor's personal evaluation of each patient)

  • Medical Consultation
  • Dietitian Follow up post-therapy
  • Preferential prices for future reinforcements/applications

GIOSTAR Mexico offers personalized therapy. As each patient is different, here at GIOSTAR Mexico we develop personalized protocols for each one of them, although they may suffer from the same condition they are not the same. This is because genetics and other circumstances can affect differently how they respond to therapy.

It’s of utmost importance that you answer our health history form, this will determine two major factors: 

• Your eligibility for therapy

• Your personalized protocol is developed according to your needs.

Stem cell therapy is a procedure in the regenerative medicine field. Regenerative medicine's ultimate goal is that our body regenerates itself. What stem cell therapy does in your body is slow down or stop the suffered deterioration and it can even regenerate damaged tissue and organs. That is why we ask our patients to fill out health form, so our medical staff may first identify if stem cell therapy is actually an option for them, as well as allow our medical team to understand each patient's specific health condition.

If you want to find out if you're a candidate for stem cell therapy and more about stem cell therapy cost, you can fill out this contact form and we will give you a call or email you as soon as possible! Or contact us directly to our US landline at 619-866-6000
