    Stem Cell Treatment Procedure for Muscular Dystrophy

    • Upon correct assessment of the type of muscular dystrophy faced by the patient the dosage, amount and frequency can be decided. Stem cell treatment is one of the best and most reliable methods available for treating muscular dystrophy.

    • With use of specialized technology viable stem cells are extracted. These cells can be obtained either from the patient like from adipose tissues, bone marrow, etc. or allogeneically from a matched donor.

    • Once extracted these stem cells are enriched and activated. It is made sure that the stem cells are adequate for the affected region to start functioning again. 

    • In case the atrophied area has started showing the signs of complete degeneration the stem cells are infused directly into the muscles.

    • Intravenous administration is also carried out to ensure that the stem cells reach the target areas correctly. They are infused in the veins with mannitol so that blood volumes in the central nervous system can be expanded. The effort always remains to ensure that the maximum number of cells reach the target areas and start the damage repair

    • These stem cells identify the lost muscle fibre cells and help in complete revival of the damaged cells. Restoring the functionality of the damaged cells back to the original state is the function of these cells

    • The main aim of stem cell treatment is to slow the progression of muscular dystrophy and relieve some of the functions

    • It has been observed that patients have shown tremendous progress through this treatment. Not only the progression of the condition is slowed the muscle strength can also be restored to a great extent through stem cell treatment
