What is Spinal Cord Injury?
A Spinal cord injury, in many cases, is a result of sudden traumatic hit or injury to the spinal cord. The injury disrupts the normal movement by injuring the spine discs and tearing of ligaments and fragmentation of the spinal cord tissue due to traumatic tear or injury. The trauma does not mangle it but compress and fracture the vertebra of spine due to which the nerve cells are destroyed the extension of nerve cells called axons also get damaged and as they carry the signals from the brain to the entire spinal cord as they get damaged the normal signaling of brain to the body is disturbed or lost causing lack of coordination. After the spinal cord injury, there are some patients which recover from the injury and there are also other cases which results in complete paralysis.
Injury to “Cervical Vertebra”. May results in the paralysis and there are “Lumbar Vertebra” if this vertebra will get damaged they result in the loss of functioning in hip, bladder, legs, bowel habits and may also result into sexual dysfunction.
There is no effective cure in the conventional methods and with conventional treatment, it is not possible to get satisfactory results. Conventional methods for treatment involves some painkiller and surgery for pain reduction and for flexibility physiotherapy are done but these methods only do cure for pain but not for the lack of coordination and brain signaling. But with the latest technology in the medical field, stem cell therapy emerges as the perfect cure for the spinal cord injury. We at stem cell therapy in India ensures that the spinal cord injury is treated perfectly with the help of stem cell therapy our team of experienced doctors will help to recover the patient with ease and satisfactory results will be obtained.
There are some symptoms of spinal cord injury:
- Loss of control over various body organ
- A headache
- Incapable of moving arms and legs
- Loss of control over bowel and bladder
- Extreme pain and stiffness in the neck region
- Pain in moving the head
Stem Cell Therapy For Treatment Of Spinal Cord Injury
Stem cells are known to have various uses in the treatment of Spinal Cord Injury. Stem cells have property to stimulate neurogenesis or regeneration of the affected area of the brain matrix and spinal cord and ultimately bringing about a noticeable repair of symptoms. Improvement is done by restoration of the lost or impaired neuron network and the making of the new neuron network, as a result, it speeds up brain reactions by improving synaptic transmission and development of the new neuronal network. Multiple paracrine factors and interleukins secreted by stem cells contribute to endogenous repair.
Results After The Therapy
- Patients can feel the difference in movement
- Reduced pain
- Improved control over bladder and bowel movement
- Improved control over body organ
What is the Cost of Stem Cell Therapy for Spinal Cord Injury in India?
Stem Cell Therapy is a very convoluted treatment modality. As the cost is not regulated in most of the parts of the world for stem cell therapy. People from across the globe prefer India as it has become the hub of medical tourism for highly affordable stem cell therapy. The treatment cost here is significantly less of what it would cost in the western countries along with the waiting period and very expensive logistic cost.
The cost of Stem Cell Therapy for Spinal Cord Injury in other European countries cost approx. $30,000 - $50,000. However, in India, it will cost you almost 75 to 85 % less than that.
The cost of stem cell therapy depends upon various medical factors like the type of stem cell treatment, type of cells, the number of stem cells required, type of stem cells, pre-treatment investigations, etc.
Fair pricing of Stem Cell Treatment in India is also a factor which is giving a new ray of hope to the patients who are in need of Stem Cell Therapy. Stem Cell Therapy cost in India is significantly economical but the medical services provided by the hospitals are top notch with International Medical standards and latest technologies.
What is Stem Cell Therapy success rate in India for Spinal Cord Injury?
The comprehensive success rate of Stem Cell Therapy for Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) in India is approx. 75% – 85%.
After stem cell therapy for Spinal Cord Injury, the patient gets significant improvements and excellent results. So far, we have observed that around 85% of the SCI patients who are treated using Stem Cell Therapy have shown relief in pain, no weakness, improved coordination in the affected part of the body, well maintained posture, improved bladder and bowel control, regained movement and muscle power along with the sensation, etc.
