Chicago Stem Cell Treatment Center: The Future of Regenerative Medicine

Friday, October 25th, 2013

Chicago Stem Cell Treatment Center, a research affiliate of Cell Surgical Network (CSN) provide stem cell therapy for a variety of degenerative conditions by deploying non-embryonic adult mesenchymal stem cells from a patient’s own adipose tissue or fat (also called Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF)). The Stromal Vascular Fraction is a broth that contains stem cells […]

Multiple Sclerosis and Chicago Stem Cell Treatment Center

Thursday, May 26th, 2011

Multiple Sclerosis is a debilitating neurologic disease that is thought to be caused by destruction of the myelin sheaths (fatty protective insulation) around axons of the brain and spinal cord. Loss of myelin impacts the ability of these tissues to conduct signals and the inflammatory process can lead to scarring resulting in a broad range […]

PD Parkinson’s Disease is a degenerative disorder of the central nervous system that affects close to one million Americans. PD is a chronic and progressive disorder that is thought to be caused by the destruction of the dopamine (an important neurotransmitter) generating cells in the midbrain. The cause of PD is unknown and there is […]

Muscular Dystrophy and Chicago Stem Cell Treatment Center

Thursday, April 28th, 2011

Muscular dystrophy (MD) is a disease characterized by progressive skeletal muscle weakness, defects in muscle proteins (dystrophin concentration is greatly reduced), and the death of muscle cells and tissue. Diagnosis is based on muscle biopsy, laboratory evaluation (increased levels of creatine phosphokinase) and EMG findings. There are nine major types of MD and most types of […]

Stroke and Chicago Stem Cell Treatment Center

Thursday, April 28th, 2011

Stroke, also known as cerebro-vascular accident, is caused by a disturbance in blood supply to the brain. Stroke affects millions of Americans every year. The result is ischemic brain injury which means that part of the brain has suffered from lack of oxygen and this has resulted in vital tissue destruction. Symptoms vary depending on […]
