Palm Beach Gardens, FL, August 15, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Getting out of a car, taking a deep breath or smiling back into a mirror might often be taken for granted, but not by patients who have had these daily trivialities restored due to advances in regenerative medicine, an emerging field in stem cell treatments and the topic of a panel discussion and workshop at the 7th World Medical Tourism & Global Healthcare Congress, Sept. 20-24, 2014, in Washington, D.C., the Medical Tourism Association® announced today.
New international developments are happening so quickly in regenerative medicine, making collaboration imperative among clinicians and researchers like panelists Dr. Elliot Lander, M.D. FACS, and Dr. Mark Berman, co-medical directors of Cell Surgical Network; Cristy Kessler, Ed.D., NBCT; and John Arnone, chairman and CEO of American CryoStem Corporation.
Body mass has the ability to regenerate, unlike other tissue after an injury. Considering that muscle makes up more than 40 percent of a human being, scientist now propose that injecting patients with their own stem cells can heal their injuries and reduce scarring in areas where tissue has been torn away and deprived of blood.
“At the end of the day, the ability to use various tissues to treat human disease is within the realm of a surgeon who wants to bring safe and effective therapies to patients,” said Dr. Lander, referring to “Innovations in Stem Cell Treatment and Regenerative Medicine,” Sunday, Sept. 20, 2014, 3 p.m., in the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center, outside Washington, D.C.
“The future has so much potential as we learn to define which cell types, deployment methods, and combination of growth factors work best for specific diseases enabling us to distinguish optimal treatments.”
