TREATMENT AND PRICING
Our treatment protocols are derived from the world's largest medical trial and to ensure the highest level of care we adhere to the regulatory framework outlined in Australia.
Consultations and injections are done by Musculoskeletal Specialist, Dr Zaid Matti at his NZ Musculoskeletal and Regenerative Medicine Centre, 101L Apollo Drive, Rosedale, Auckland.
Our Stem Cell Harvest surgeries are done at Ormiston Specialist Centre which is a private hospital.
- A fat tissue sample of 50-60 grams is taken using a simple liposuction procedure
- The sample is expanded in our laboratory over 8 weeks. Unnecessary components are removed and the Mesenchymal Stem Cells are expanded to hundreds of millions
- The resulting sample is a 95% pure Mesenchymal Stem Cells solution called Pure Expanded Stem Cells
- On the day of injection, blood is drawn to create a Platelet Rich Plasma
- The Platelet Rich Plasma is mixed with the Mesenchymal Stem Cell serum to increase the effectiveness
- Dr Matti then injects the mixture into the joint under ultrasound guidance for exact placement which ensures better results
As ReGen Cellular operates its own clinic and laboratories, we control our own procedures from the extraction to expansion of stem cells. We also provide long term cell storage through cryopreservation where patients can store their cells for future treatments for up to 20 years.
Once extracted, the stem cells do not age, and patients are able to be treated with their 'younger' cells.
PHYSIOTHERAPY INCREASES STEM CELL EFFECTS
Physiotherapy for best results
Studies show that carefully managed joint movement exercises and correct loading signals allow the injected stem cells to integrate into the joint better. Basically, incorporating physiotherapy into the treatment plan boosts the power of the stem cells to do their repair work.
Regenerative Medicine and rehabilitation helps in restoring function and mobility to damaged body tissues. Stem Cell Therapies represent the newer field of regenerative medicine while physiotherapy represents the rehabilitation element of this equation. Our patients may work with our Head of Physiotherapy or any of our physiotherapy partners around New Zealand.
Our results and research shows, a strong rehabilitation program will increase the effectiveness of Expanded Stem Cell Therapy and lead to a stronger recovery.
OSTEOARTHRITIS STEM CELL
ReGen is New Zealand's leading clinic that specialises in the treatment of Osteoarthritis using expanded Mesenchymal stem cells.
All patients see Dr Matti for an initial assessment. The patients' history, radiology and desired outcome are discussed and a course of treatment recommended.
Expanded stem cell treatment is not suitable for everyone, and we work with patients that we believe can achieve a successful result.
Stem Cell Therapy Starts From (for NZ Residents only)
$14,000 NZD Including GST
This treatment is Expanded Stem Cell Therapy which requires an adipose harvesting 6-8 weeks prior to the initial injection, allowing time for the stem cells to be separated, purified and expanded.
Consultation with Dr Matti, Musculoskeletal Specialist to assess suitability, including a review of submitted medical records, patient history, and medication schedule.
Transport of harvested material under strict bio conditions.
Under strict laboratory conditions patients MSC's are expanded and cultured to 50 million or more Pure Expanded Stem Cells.
