Stem Cell Therapy

Stem Cell Therapy

Cayman Spine Institute offers a wide range of Regenerative Spine Procedures to treat many spine conditions. We are the first to offer a combination of autologous (from the patient’s own body) stem cells with a minimally invasive cervical or lumbar spine fusion. The enhanced stem cell fusions gives the patient the benefit of the latest minimally invasive surgical techniques and technology combined with the healing and regenerative property of stem cells. Depending on the patient and condition we are treating we will use either a bone marrow or adipose (from body fat) derived stem cells or a combination of both may be used. This combination of technologies can only enhances the patient’s outcome.
