Parkinson’s disease affects the brain and leads to shaking and problematic walking, movement, and coordination.
Parkinson’s disease usually develops after the age of 50. It is one of the most widely seen nervous system disorders in the elderly. The condition can occur in younger adults and it affects both women and men.
Parkinson’s disease sometimes occurs in families. Young people tend to be affected when a form of the disease runs in their family.
The brain chemical dopamine helps nerve cells to control muscle movement. Parkinson’s disease appears when the dopamine producing nerve cells in the brain are slowly destroyed. With no dopamine, the nerve cells in that section of the brain cannot properly communicate. This causes the loss of muscle function. Damage increases with time. Why these brain cells degenerate is not known.
Parkinson’s in children can occur when the nerves are less sensitive to dopamine, but it is rare.
Parkinson’s disease symptoms include shaking and tremors, automatic movements slowing or stopping, such as blinking, drooling, trouble swallowing, trouble walking, an unexpressive face, muscle pain, stiff muscles, movement problems, quiet, slow and monotone speech, stress, confusion, dementia, fainting, hallucinations, memory loss and depression.
New Stem Cell Application to Treat Parkinson’s Disease
Undifferentiated adult stem cells are changeable and can transform into the cells of countless organs and structures within the human body. Used in many different therapies, they heal damaged fibers and rejuvenate failing cells through cell division, a process in which they multiply indefinitely. Stem cell science has seen vast improvements in recent times with many new developments and discoveries being made.
Angeles Hospital’s Stem Cell Application Program
Angeles Health developed the Adult Autologous Stem Cell (A-ASC) Therapy program to manage a variety of syndromes, including Parkinson’s disease. Parkinson’s disease is managed with autologous adult stem cells, cells that are harvested from the patient themselves. There is very little possibility of a patient’s body rejecting their own stem cells.
Angeles hospital’s doctors utilize stem cells that are from the patient’s bone marrow and adipose tissue, or fat. As adipose tissue extraction is much more effective than bone marrow extraction, due to it yielding up to ten times more stem cells, it is more commonly used. Bone marrow extraction is a more difficult procedure to carry out and is not applied so frequently.
The groundbreaking and therapeutic endovascular placement of adipose-derived adult autologous stem cells at Hospital Angeles means organs and tissues can be targeted directly.
A specialized catheterization procedure that is non-invasive and easy on the patient is our chosen method. Stem cells can thus be distributed throughout the body, there is no need for anesthesia and it is completed in less than an hour.
Angeles Health International is a Center of Excellence that offers Parkinson’s disease patients the most innovative therapies of the highest quality and confidence. Collaborative medical practitioners work continuously to define best practice. Together they measure results and establish outstanding treatment protocols. The Center of Excellence operates with staff who adhere to formally appointed bodies of expertise. The highest standards of treatment and investigative research are upheld at all times.
