Stem Cell Treatment for Multiple Sclerosis

At Stem Cell Treatment Institute advanced procedures are performed at some of the most scientifically advanced hospitals in the world.

Stem Cell Treatment

Our Multiple Sclerosis stem cell treatment differs from standard methods by attacking the root cause inside the brain.


Stem Cell Therapy is focused on affecting physical changes in the brain that can improve a patient's quality of life.


MS patients can be treated by lumbar puncture (injecting the cells into the cerebrospinal fluid), IV, or other techniques.


Typically this is an outpatient procedure. however patients may stay for 4 or 5 nights in our suites during the process.


Treatment using autologous (patient source) or donor cells (placenta) are available.


If Autologous Bone Marrow is used bone marrow is collected from the patient's iliac crest (hip bone) using thin-needle puncture under local anesthesia. Once the bone marrow collection is complete, patients may return to their suite or hotel and go about normal activities.


The stem cells are then processed in a state-of-the-art laboratory. In the lab, both the quantity and quality of the stem cells are measured. The stem cells are then implanted back into the patient by lumbar puncture or IV.

Stem Cell Specialist

Stem Cell Specialist Dr. Lopez works with a team of highly trained and experienced specialists including neurologists, neurosurgeons, oncologists, hematologists, ophthalmologists, and pediatricians.

We offer Stem Cell treatments with enhanced or manipulated stem cells. These expanded and mobilized stem cells have been found to provide better results than non-manipulated stem cell applications.


Manipulation or amplification of the stem cells is done in the lab, where care is taken to retain the cell properties. These expanded and mobilized cells provide superior results and cell recovery has been found to occur twice as fast as with non-manipulated stem cell applications.

Studies where both types of cells were used show that results were quicker and were obtained predominantly from the manipulated stem cells.

Stem Cells can come from the patient’s fat or bone marrow, but stem cells from donor placenta or umbilical cord blood is also available and may have improved benefits. Donor characteristics (i.e., age) play a key role in treatment success. Your individual situation will be considered and suitable options will be discussed.

As we age our stem cells become less prolific and less effective. For this reason younger cells are often preferred. We do not need to go all the way back to an early stage embryo to get young cells. Young cells can be used from The Placenta, or Umbilical Cord (cord blood cells), and other young sources. These young cells are more likely than stem cells found in adult sources like bone marrow and adipose tissue (fat) to have proliferative properties. This means that stem cells found in placenta and cord blood have a greater ability to regenerate.


In some counrties (US and Europe) requlations limit access to these advanced stem cell sources. Fortunately our International Health Department Permit, a COFEPRIS, is on a Presidential level, insuring access to the highest level of quality stem cells.
