Stem Cell Therapy for Retinitis Pigmentosa

A young Romanian woman named Lydia was disappointed when conventional medicine gave her no hope in treatment of her retinitis pigmentosa. However, Dr. Omar Gonzalez of the Integra Medical Center, located in Mexico, has offered her hope as well as hope for other individuals diagnosed with vision problems including diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration.

Dr. Omar Gonzalez has devised a stem cell treatment offering an alternative to conventional treatments for the disease. Dr. Gonzalez has designed a proprietary method that involves injection of stem cells behind the eye. Through such procedures, nearly 80% of individuals experienced slowing of the disease process, and approximately 60% have noticed an increase in their peripheral vision. None of the patients treated for retinitis pigmentosa at Integra Medical Center experienced post-treatment side effects, and defined any discomfort to merely “minimal” for up to 12 hours following the injection.

Within 30 minutes following the treatment, Lydia, who previously could hardly see four feet in front of her, could define shapes, people and even the color of their clothing. Lydia finally feels that she has some hope, not only to see her family members, but also to become more self-sufficient and less reliant on others to do things for her.
