Stem cell therapy is the buzz word today in the healthcare industry. Adult Stem cells are undifferentiated multipotent cells that are capable of converting into 20 types of adult tissues.
They have the unique ability to release a variety of growth factors and chemical agents which leads to tissue and organ repair even in adults.
These cells are obtained from the bone marrow and fat of the same patient and purified and given back to the same patient within a few hours.
Since they are the patient's own cells, the risk of transplantation is negligible. Since fat has 3000 times more cells than bone marrow, I Dr. Sagar Jawale started to do stem cell transplantation derived from fat.
It made me India's first doctor to do it. Stem cell treatment is costly and costs Rs 30 lacs in America and about Rs 5 lacs in India.
Dr. Sagar Jawale, a pediatric surgeon from Jalgaon, Maharashtra has dropped down the cost significantly for the poor patients of India to Rs 75,000-90,000.
