About ProgenCell – Stem Cell Therapies:
Since 1999 up to date, Dr. Jorge Gaviño and Dr. Luis Romero have been practicing all kinds of orthopedic surgery, including knee, hip replacement, rotator cuff repair, column surgery and more.
One day, on the fall of 2001 they were discussing a knee surgery technique, were the top bone of the knee gets drilled to flow the bone marrow in the joint to regenerate cartilage tissue. On the discussion, they realize that the cause of the capability of the bone marrow is the presence of Stem Cells. It was there when they started researching different applications of Stem Cells starting to use them in repairing muscle tissues and bones. Doctors started to see that patients treated with Stem Cells also improve on immunological conditions. That’s how experimentation began with: rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, systemic lupus and diabetes mellitus. Eventually, they also found benefits of applying stem cells near the damaged tissue, improving other conditions like Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer, Maculopathy, retinopathy and Retinitis Pigmentosa.
Always working with one goal on mind, improving patients quality of lige in 2008 they decided to make available for more people this type of procedure and ProgenCell was born.
