One of the most innovative ways to manage pain today is the clinical application of stem cell therapy. Advances in stem cell strategies have flourished over the past 15 years, allowing physicians the opportunity to now treat several diseases that do not respond to traditional treatments.
Unfortunately, when people talk about the topic of stem cells, the discussion usually focuses on the moral and ethical related controversies surrounding the use of embryos. In addition, there are multiple issues and concerns associated with the possibility of transmitting DNA diseases to the recipient and the chance of developing tumors. However, there is a unique type of cell called autologous adult stem cell that can be efficaciously used to repair, restore and regenerate damaged tissues. These amazing cells can be safely collected from the patient’s own stem cells, with no rejection and/or adverse reaction-type concerns. The stem cell transplant procedure usually only takes about 25 minutes, conducted under sedation, and the patient goes home about two hours after the procedure has been performed.
StemCell Miami is considered one of the premier stem cell institutes in the country, specializing in the clinical application of stem cell therapies, and it is conveniently located in the heart of beautiful Miami. This state-of-the-art institute specializes in the use of autologous adult stem cells for the treatment of orthopedic-related conditions and is directed by highly acclaimed Dr. Ramon Castellanos, who is considered a true pioneer in the field of regenerative medicine and pain management. This coveted institute is widely visited by patients, including top-tier athletes, from around the globe, all in search of finding a solution to their often-considered untreatable painful conditions.
Dr. Castellanos possesses a very impressive set of medical credentials. He is double Board certified by the American Academy of Medical Specialties in physical medicine and rehabilitation and interventional pain management, and he serves as assistant professor of neurological science at Florida International University. He conducted his residency and fellowships at State University of New York-Health Science Center at Stony Brook and Cornell University. Dr. Castellanos decided to follow his true passion, which is the clinical application of stem cell therapies and now possesses over 15 years of expertise with autologous adult stem cells and the regenerative medicine spectrum.
Dr. Castellanos has developed several highly specialized products, tools and patented techniques to help him be at the forefront in his medical practice. He first created his own trademarked E-needle© to enable him to strategically collect the ideal stem cells for optimum results. He also has developed innovative supplements like his very own C-Stem 34, which may additionally boost the production of stem cells in the body. Nonetheless, it is his coveted and patented technique called Prometheus©, a cutting-edge procedure that prompted the creation and implementation of various new medical protocols to obtain better clinical results (particularly in elderly patients) that is the key factor that attracts top tier, elite athletes and celebrities to visit his StemCell Miami Institute. This innovative Prometheus© technique has delivered unparalleled results in thousands of procedures completed at StemCell Miami and all procedures to date are in total absence of any adverse event.
Dr. Castellanos and his StemCell Miami Institute specialize in the treatment of orthopedic conditions like osteoarthritis (mainly in knees, shoulders, hip and ankles) that have not responded to medications or physical therapy and/or have been considered for a surgical joint replacement. The institute also focuses on treating tendon ruptures or severe inflammations, including many conditions that cannot be controlled with conventional treatments. This includes the shoulder’s infamous rotator cuff rupture and the troublesome Achilles tendon in the foot. The institute also has shown amazing results with several other hard-to-treat conditions like TMJ, peripheral neuropathy, metatarsalgia, complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), osteoporosis, bursitis, spondylosis, trigeminal neuralgia, degenerative disc disease, cervical spondylosis, fibromyalgia, sciatica pain and ACL tears, all without the need of invasive surgeries.
Dr. Castellanos truly believes that one of the main factors that sets StemCell Miami Institute apart from the rest is the fact that “we have made tremendous strides at treating spine-related conditions, a treatment that most other stem cell institutes do not perform.” Furthermore, StemCell Miami differs from other stem cell clinics because of the superiority of its patented Prometheus©, an innovative procedure that uses a strategic combination of mixing the hematopoietic stem cells (HSC) found in bone marrow with mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) that are most abundant in adipose tissue.
Finally, Dr. Castellanos has been touted in numerous publications as “The Miracle Doctor” because he successfully treats many conditions often considered untreatable and multiple symptoms from numerous other intractable pain-related diseases.
