While the American medical community is just beginning to discover and embrace the advantages of stem cell therapy, countries in Europe and Asia are making significant inroads in applying the findings of pioneering stem cell research towards enhanced quality of life, health and vitality.
Many Americans are travelling the globe to take advantage of the progress being made in this developing field, as evidence mounts that stem cells can play a life-changing role in treating certain illnesses. Approximately 10,000 people have been treated internationally since 2001.
Top stem cell treatment centers around the world include:
Germany The XCell-Center in Cologne, Germany is the first privately owned center in Europe to specialize in regenerative medicine using adult stem cell therapy. It opened in 2007. The worldwide demand for their treatments were so overwhelming that it was almost immediately operating at full capacity. In January of 2009, XCell-Center opened a second location in Dusseldorf, Germany. Both XCell-Center facilities feature the latest medical equipment and technology.
