Do you suffer from a medical condition in which your body has begun to produce antibodies working against its own tissues? Much of conventional medicine focuses on fighting viruses or bacteria, preventing infection and healing injuries, and yet autoimmune diseases present challenges that are entirely unique because the body’s own defense systems have become part of the problem. Autoimmune disease treatment is a complex challenge with few options that address the underlying problems.
Autoimmune Disease Treatment with Stem Cells
At Gulf Coast Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine Center, we have protocols for treating patients with many autoimmune conditions. We see patients with debilitating disorders that include lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, relapsing polychondritis, hepatitis, and myasthenia gravis. Our autoimmune disease treatment protocols utilize a patient’s own adult stem cells, which we collect from the stromal vascular fraction (SVF). The SVF, extracted from fatty tissue following a brief liposuction procedure, contains mesenchymal stem cells, growth factors, and other cell types.

How Stem Cell Therapy Works
Stem cells are part of the body’s natural system for repair and regeneration. Commonly known for their ability to become different kinds of cells, stem cells are valued for their potential to help the body heal itself. Unlike the major traumas that result in broken bones, autoimmune diseases are challenging in that the damage they inflict can be subtle and pervasive. Because the stem cells are taken from the same patient, there is virtually no risk of rejection, unlike with many medications and foreign substances. Our treatment protocols are tailored according to the specific patient and condition, but the in-patient procedure can be performed in a single visit that includes both extraction and deployment.
Visit Us in Ocean Springs
We encourage you to visit our center and meet with clinical professionals who can provide you with a wealth of information on the benefits of undergoing an autoimmune disease treatment in Mississippi. While stem cell therapy is still considered experimental, we consider ourselves pioneers making great strides in a new era for modern medicine. The benefits of stem cell therapy are only just now being appreciated and recognized by certain sectors of the healthcare community. We pride ourselves on pioneering new aspects of regenerative medicine, but stem cells are not intended to replace the medication or therapies prescribed by your physician. Contact our office today to find out if you are an ideal candidate for stem cell therapy. We look forward to meeting you.
