Transform your life with stem cell therapy

At DVC Stem we have been using stem cell treatments to improve health and comfort for over 10 years. We follow the highest standard, respecting safety & innovation in the delivery and evolution of regenerative and protective medicine.

Stem cells, a pathway towards better health

Our mission is to alleviate symptoms and halt disease progression.  Stem cell research has shown that cellular therapy may have the ability to promote the repair of diseased, dysfunctional or injured tissue. There have been many positive and exciting outcomes to patients who have had little success with conventional treatments.

We know you may have questions

What type of cells does DVC Stem use?

We administer over 300 million cord tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells. DVC Stem is partnered with Vitro Biopharma, an award-winning medical laboratory located in Golden, Colorado, USA, which is fully FDA registered, cGMP compliant, ISO 9001, and ISO 13485 certified. Cells are only sourced from the American Association of Tissue Bank (AATB) certified suppliers of full-term, ethically US donated human umbilical cords. The selection of these donated tissues is extremely regulated and strict. All of our cells are expanded using safe and standard protocols and are then flown overnight in sub-zero containers directly to our clinic for immediate treatment. To ensure maximum treatment effectiveness, our cells are expanded to as much as 300 million cells before being administered.

What are mesenchymal stem cells?

Stem cells are cells that have the ability to become many different cell types in the human body.  Stem cells have the ability to replace damaged or diseased tissue. Mesenchymal cord tissue-derived stem cells have an extremely high rate of differentiation and immune modulation.  MSCs (Mesenchymal Stem Cells) can provide regenerative results through seeking out areas of damage, paracrine signalling, regulating immune responses, and positively affecting human microbiology. MSCs are also immune privileged meaning the body will not reject them.

Why should I travel abroad for treatment?

Despite the overwhelmingly positive clinical evidence, the United States still has very strict regulations and laws against stem cell treatments. While you may find many clinics in the US offering “stem cell therapies”, these therapies are highly restricted in scope and number of cells used. It is currently not legal to obtain expanded allogeneic treatment inside the US. The expansion is what allows the high cell numbers needed for effective treatment. DVC Stem seeks to provide patients with safe and effective treatments, in a luxurious and beautiful setting.

DVC Stem is located in the beautiful island paradise of Grand Cayman. We are only a short 45 minute flight from Miami & our clinic is situated directly across from the world famous Seven Mile Beach.

What makes DVC Stem different from other clinics?

It is important to note that DVC Stem sources cells from a FDA registered, cGMP compliant, ISO 9001, and ISO 13485 certified lab in the United States. This means that the patient receives only the highest quality, regulated mesenchymal cord tissue-derived stem cells. We are highly regulated by the Cayman Islands government, and legally able to provide expanded cell therapy.

When looking for a reputable stem cell therapy clinic it is important to ask them; where their cells come from, how many cells you will receive and what sort of treatment protocol they follow. It is important to note that under-regulated clinics can extract stem cells from a variety of sources, not all of which are safe & effective.

What type of results should I expect?

We only offer treatments for conditions that have years of medical research backing positive results with harmful side effects. Dozens of studies have shown the efficacy of stem cell therapies for various degenerative diseases, and we have had great success from our past patients.

Our stem cell therapy aims to regenerate degraded tissue, modulate the immune system, promote anti-inflammatory mechanisms and improve overall quality of life.

Patients have reported improvements in energy levels, mobility, strength, balance, symptom management and aesthetics.
