Stromal vascular fraction cellular (SVFC) therapy, better known as stem cell therapy, is a rapidly expanding set of innovative medical technologies that restores cellular function by enabling the body to repair, replace and regenerate damaged, aging or diseased cells, tissues and organs. The minimally invasive, proprietary procedure, which has been proven to be 100 percent safe, utilizes a patient’s own stem-cell-rich adipose or fat tissue to significantly boost success rates for patient outcomes in a wide variety of conditions including pain management, neurologic, orthopaedic and cardiovascular. In addition, there is a vast population interested in stem cell cosmetic procedures, as well as generalised anti-aging rejuvenation.
ReGen at Emirates Hospital is certified for the medical tourism market and will operate under US Federal Drug Administration (FDA) standards. ReGen will boast an international staff of physicians who are board-certified or board-eligible and experienced in administering the leading cellular therapies available to treat a variety of conditions. The staff will be led by board certified physician and ReGen Medical Management Dubai, Founder Dr. Steven Victor who has treated numerous patients for rejuvenation, anti-aging, joint problems and neurological conditions, including concussions, autism, dementia and Alzheimer’s.
Steven Victor MD, ReGen Medical PC said, “ReGen Medical has successfully performed more than 600 stem cell therapy treatments with positive outcomes for various diseases of unmet clinical needs and cosmetic indications, in the US. We are proud to partner with them to offer the only dedicated stem cell and regenerative medical center in the UAE, all while incorporating the latest advancements in cellular therapies to patients worldwide. Further, our launch will affirm Emirates Hospital’s leadership role in these fields and help to attract additional talent to our already exceptionally talented and dedicated team.”
“In addition to stem cell therapy, the demand for the Cosmetic Indications and Rejuvenation Therapy is enormous and is expected to generate great interest. We look forward to collaborating with the physicians on Dr. Victor’s team, as we continue to deepen our expertise of this ground-breaking, regenerative therapy. We believe ReGen at Emirates Hospital will attract patients from all over the world and further increase medical tourism in the UAE region,” said Dr Yehia El Gabbani, Director of Emirates Hospital.
