Why Panama?

While some cellular therapies are available in the US, few are available for those seeking to obtain, grow and conserve their own stem cells; processes which are available in many other countries, including Panama. This is why your physician is referring you to TenSalud.
The FDA does not currently permit cellular therapies using "manipulated" cells, meaning any therapy that goes beyond extracting cells from tissue samples and immediately re-introducing those cells back into similar use within your body. The process of growth, or expansion, although not changing the cells in any way aside from increasing their number, is considered "manipulation."
