You may be familiar with "bone marrow transplant", it's been a regular practice in medicine since the 50's.  But did you know in reality this is a stem cell transplant?  In this article you'll hear of the amazing results they are getting with stem cell transplant.  What you may not know is that this is available in the U.S.  The only difference in our office is that we do not chemically destroy your immune system.  we instead simply infuse your stem cells intravenously every 3 months over the course of the year up to two years.  In this way we are able to avoid the very dangerous practice of decimating your immune system with chemotherapy drugs, while still giving your stem cells an opportunity to "reset" your immune system.  The idea is to "reset" or "reboot" your immune system so as to stop attacking your nervous system which is the cause of the symptoms associated with MS.
