Medical Tourism Expands to Stem Cell Treatments

Celiac.com 07/05/2012 - As more people seek out affordable medical services in foreign countries, the variety of available medical services continues to grow. Stem cells are just the latest in the list of medical services being targeted at foreign visitors.

Stem cell treatments are a type of intervention strategy that introduces new cells into damaged tissue in order to treat disease or injury. Many medical researchers believe that stem cell treatments have the potential to change the face of human disease with minimal risk of rejection and side effects.

Medical researchers anticipate that adult and embryonic stem cells will soon be able to treat cancer, Type 1 diabetes mellitus, Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, Celiac Disease, cardiac failure, muscle damage and neurological disorders, liver cirrhosis and most importantly spinal injuries/paralytic cases from road accidents.

Stem cell treatment is one of the fastest growing medical medical services in the world today, and provides many people with tremendous benefits, says Mr. Aslam Sayed Mohamed, Manager for MediCAREtourism, said.

Travel Point is teaming up with Ming Medical Services of Malaysia to offer the stem cell packages, along with free medical consultation and general health checkups for all of their passengers traveling to Thailand & Malaysia.

The health checkups will be held at accredited hospitals like Paulo Memorial Hospital in Bangkok (Thailand), Prince Court Medical Centre in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) and Sime Darby Medical Centre Ara Damansara in Selangor (Malaysia).

This means that, in addition to free medical consultation, and general health checks, Travel Point customers traveling in Asia and the Far East can choose very affordable stem cell therapy packages to Malaysia and Thailand.

Commenting on the importance of these treatment options, Dr. Sean NG, Managing Director, Ming Medical Services says stem cell treatments can give "100% cure to ailments like Vitiligo, Aging, Diabetes, Diabetic Ulcers, Autism, Cosmetic Abnormalities and end stage heart diseases."

In a related story for the HuffingtonPost, Anthonia Akitunde notes that what was once regarded as an option only for the rich, medical tourism is becoming more and more popular among regular people. She cites estimates by Patients Beyond Borders, which produces guidebooks on medical travel, that in 2012, 600,000 people traveled abroad for treatment -- a number anticipated to grow 15 to 20 percent annually as boomers age.
