TREATMENT PROTOCOL AT NEUROGEN
There are three simple steps for the treatment process of stem cell transplantation at Neurogen Brain and Spine Institute whereno major surgery or incision is required for this procedure.
Bone marrow aspiration
Purification of stem cells
Stem cell injection

TREATMENT AND REHABILITATION
The schedule charted for treatment at NeuroGen lasts for six days that provides a holistic neuro-rehabilitation.The patient will have to undergo a series of tests for two reasons, as soon as the date for stem cell therapy is fixed. Firstly, to make check the fitness levels of the patient through routine blood tests like blood sugar, S Creatinine, CBC, S electrolytues, CT, PT< BT< LFT, HIV I and II anti-bodies. The second reason is to test the seriously and the nature of the condition without which planning a treatment is impossible. Special imaging tests are done as required.Direction of stem cell stimulating factors like granulocyte colony stimulating factor (Grafeel/XPHIL) needs to be managed within 48 hrs and 24 hrs before the bone marrow harvesting is done.
Day 1: Complete pre-operative assessment
A complete pre-anesthetic workup along with neurologically, physically, functionally, psychologically evaluation is conducted.This includes routine tests like blood work like CBC, Blood sugar, S creatinine, S electrolytes, LFT, CT, BT, PT, HIV I and II antibodies, HbsAg, HCV antibodies along with more advance testing to understand the severity and progression of the condition.
Day 2: Stem cell therapy
The stem cell therapy process makes use of autologous bone marrow derived stem cells which is taken from the patient’s own body. It consists of broadly three stages.
Stem cell therapy is done in 3 steps:
(1) While operating the stem cells are procured from the bone marrow through a bone marrow aspiration
(2) A process of separation, harvesting, enriching or expansion and differentiation takes place in the laboratory
(3) The transfer or deliverance of the cells through the preferred location.
Post treatment care:
The patient should rest for the day and drink plenty of fluids in order to avoid spinal headache.The next day, the patient is sent for a rigorous rehabilitation regime which is tailored to the patient’s needs.
Day 3-6: Rehabilitation Therapy
Converting a disabled person into becoming an able person needs an integrated approach. To ensure that we achieve this goal, we have a team comprising of physiotherapist, occupational therapist, speech therapist, neuro-psychologist, urologist, andrologist, and neuro-physician.
Day 6: Discharge
After the final rehabilitation sitting, the patient is advised to come back for a follow up for the next coming months and then discharged.
To keep the patient’s progress in track, a follow-up appointment is programmed for three months regularly.
Neurogen welcomes every patient to be a part of the family. We make every effort in providing holistic care for the entire member before and after the treatment.
