Stem Cell Therapy is one of the most novel advances in medicine when it comes to aesthetics and management of chronic disease. Due to its novelty, there tends to be some uncertainty in the market with regard to what it is and what it is used for.
Dr Steven Victor, General Practitioner (Regenerative Medicine) from the US, is an American Board-Certified Specialist in Regenerative Medicine and Regenerative Cosmetic Dermatology with over 30 years’ experience in researching, developing and providing treatment through stem cell therapy for various chronic diseases and beauty treatments. He is the only DHA licensed Physician in Regenerative Medicine in UAE.
Given the complex nature of the therapy, and the benefits and risks associated with it, it is important to go to a licensed practitioner only. “It is VERY IMPORTANT to go to a licensed regulated physician otherwise you risk getting hurt or infected and you do not know what kind of stem cells you are getting. In our stem cell therapy protocol, there have been no side effects for 12 years since we’ve been offering them. The reason is because we are using your own cells, do not add anything and we do NOT grow cells. In growing cells, we have seen tumours develop.” states Dr Steven.
Stem Cell Therapy is a process where your own stem cells are used to repair your body. Stem cells are found in the capillaries in all of your body, and they can transform into new tissue. They also have cytokines that are anti-inflammatory, increase blood flow, help grow new blood vessels, stop cell death as well as help grow new tissues.
Stem cell therapy works by reducing inflammation/modulation and increasing blood flow. Since most diseases have inflammation and decreased blood flow, reversing the process means the disease/health problem can improve supporting the body to heal itself. The disease is not necessarily cured; however the patient can get back their quality of life.
With advances in technology, stem cells can be easily harvested from the capillaries, and immediately used to treat the patient. “We have treated many patients for Aesthetics and Rejuvenation to Orthopaedics - every joint in the body, Diabetes, Neurological conditions such as Autism, Concussion, Alzheimer’s and Multiple Sclerosis.” informs Dr. Steven.
At the moment, Dr Steven is the only physician approved by the Dubai Health Authority to carry out stem cell therapy in Dubai. He brings FDA Cellular Lab standards to Valiant and the Stem Cell Lab meets all cGTPs and sterility requirements while the technology is patent pending.
Stem cell therapy can offer many advantages, some of which are the management of chronic diseases where the use of conventional therapies has failed, as well as avoiding surgical procedures in both the aesthetic and orthopaedic field. The results tend to be long-lasting depending on each individual case with proven track record in aesthetics of 5 to 10 years.
Dr. Steven is a clinical expert in ground-breaking anti-ageing and cellular therapy technologies, with a passion for creating safe, minimally invasive treatments that aid patients in living a longer, healthier, more beautiful life. Prior to joining Valiant Clinic, Dr. Steven worked at various reputable institutions in USA, UK, and the UAE. To date, he has treated over 900 patients successfully.
