What we provide

DVC Stem uses cord tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells ethically sourced from AATB certified, US-donated, full term human umbilical cords. We administer over 300 million cells that are all thoroughly tested for viability before treatment. These cells are NOT a blood product therefore it is extremely safe and does not require HLA or phenotypic matching.

Mesenchymal stem cells have the ability to:

1. Reduce inflammation
2. Modulate the immune system
3. Stimulate tissue regeneration

All patients undergo therapy in our vip treatment room located within our advanced clinic. Patients are under constant supervision from both our medical director and supporting medical team.

We typically recommend patients stay a minimum of 4 days in Grand Cayman for treatment.

Treatment at DVC Stem spans the course of 2 days.

Day 1: Arrival in Grand Cayman.

Day 2: Physical assessments & supporting therapies.

Day 3:
Cell transplant & activation therapies.

Day 4:
Follow-up physical & departure.

Our cell therapy protocol is safe & non-invasive. Patients will be able to travel the following day.

Our clinic is fully licensed

Our clinic is located on the safe & luxurious Seven Mile Beach in Grand Cayman.

We are located at the Da Vinci Wellness Centre and are fully licensed and inspected by the government of the Cayman Islands.

As a British Overseas Territory, healthcare regulations are extremely strict, on par with the US, UK, and EU. Additionally, our entire medical staff is fully registered and licensed, and our stem cell protocols are IRB reviewed and approved by a board in the United States.

Where our cells come from

DVC Stem is partnered with Vitro Biopharma, an award-winning medical laboratory located in Golden, Colorado, 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 per AATB standards.

How we transport our cells

All of our cells are expanded using safe and standard protocols and are then flown overnight in sub-zero CryoPort™ containers directly to our clinic for treatment. To ensure maximum treatment effectiveness, all of our cells are ISCT tested for viability prior to use.

Louis A. Cona M.D.

Medical Director

Dr. Cona has been a pioneer in regenerative cell therapy, providing the first stem cell treatments in the Cayman Islands over a decade ago. He continues to research alternative therapies for various medical conditions, and with IRB certified clinical trials, he has treated local and international patients successfully for Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Chronic Low-Grade Inflammation which is part of the overall Aging Process, as well as many other degenerative conditions.​

Dr. Cona is certified by the American Academy of Aesthetic Practitioners and is also a member of the World Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (WAAAM). He is also a recognized member of the British Medical Association, the General Medical Council (UK), the Caribbean College of Family Physicians, and the American Academy of Family Physicians.

Dr. Cona is the treatment performing physician for all stem cell therapy patients at DVC Stem.

Common questions about our clinic

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.

How do I begin the treatment proccess?

We require all prospective patients to fill out our patient application form. This will allow our medical director to better understand your candidacy for treatment as well as what you hope to achieve with stem cell therapy. If you are ready to begin the proccess you can apply for treatment here.
