What is Muscular dystrophy

Muscular dystrophy (MD) is a disorder that gradually weakens muscles. Over time, when a child’s muscles break down it is replaced with fatty tissue. MD can make daily activities like walking and standing up hard to do. It may even cause deformities in the joints.
MD is a genetic disorder. That means it is inherited. Children who have history of this disorder in the family are likely to suffer from it.
Each type of muscular dystrophy is passed on by a different gene, and they all have different symptoms. However, all of the disorders are always progressive (worsen over time), and always involve destruction and death of muscle fibers at some stage of the disease. MD can begin at any point of time in one’s life however, when affected with it at an early age usually in Childhood is the most severe.

  4. Limb-girdle Muscular Dystrophy
  5. Facioscapulohumeral Muscular Dystrophy
  6. Congenital Muscular Dystrophy
  7. Emery-Dreifuss Muscular Dystrophy

Stem Cells Therapy for Muscular Dystrophy

Stem Cells Therapy has shown significant improvements in patients suffering from Muscular Dystrophy. Stem cells are defined by certain features and, foremost, an ability for long-term self-renewal and the capacity to differentiate into multiple cell lineages hence improving the condition of the patient and helping in slowing down the progression of the disease.

With our Team of experts and State of the Art Technology we have mastered the art to isolate maximum number of viable stem cells from autologous source (Bone Marrow and Adipose). Once derived these cells are thoroughly checked and administered to the patient under supervision of our expect Doctors.

These cells one infused reach to the damaged part of the body and start repairing the damaged area enhancing the capability of the muscle to repair in a better fashion bringing down the inflammation levels and hence improving the quality of life.
