Prior to the option of cell therapy, patients like Gloria who live with chronic, progressive diseases such as heart failure faced a bleak future. - Dr. Mathew Mick, Interventional Cardiologist, Okyanos

Okyanos, the leader in adult stem cell therapy, is celebrating the achievement of its first hundred patients safely treated, marking the noteworthy accomplishment within 6 months of opening. Located in Freeport, Grand Bahama, Okyanos has achieved remarkable results treating serious, chronic illnesses using patients’ own adult stem cells.
One of those patients, a medical doctor from Spain (Paul), was diagnosed a decade ago with polyneuropathy and Type 2 Diabetes—the nerve damage and immobilizing pain from which eventually restricted him to a wheelchair. Searching for relief from the unbearable discomfort, a business contact referred him to Okyanos where he found relief.
“Gone is the red-hot poker pain. Also, my feet—diabetics commonly get claw toes where the toes are not straight due to blood flow diminishing, as well as ulcers, skin conditions, and sweating. All those things have disappeared,” says Paul. “My toes are now straight; my skin temperature is now warm and not cold. Also, the swelling is virtually gone from my knees down, even after recent flights. The people close to me have noticed. Family and friends say that I have undergone a remarkable transformation in the last few weeks!”
Gloria, a beloved great-grandparent from New Jersey, was told there were no more options for treating her CHF (Congestive Heart Failure) but she wasn’t ready to give up hope. Feeling pinned with a diagnosis of CHF, she was told her latest treatment would act merely as a “band-aid,” not a fix. Her cardiologist and primary doctor agreed that there was nothing more they could do for her.
Gloria reveals, “I cried and cried to my doctors who told me that the heart transplant list was the next step for me. I thought there must be something else I could do, but the doctors were both saying they couldn’t do anything more for me.”
Gloria’s doctors suggested she get into a clinical trial, but she was not qualified. However, Gloria’s primary doctor did his own research and came back to her to talk about stem cell therapy. After meeting with the medical team at Okyanos, Gloria underwent treatment using her own fat-derived healing cells.
More than 5 months after her cell therapy at Okyanos, Gloria says life is very different now. “Life is wonderful, and I’m so thrilled. I don’t go to bed and cry, I feel good. I haven’t said that in years. I can do the vacuuming, which I haven’t done in months. I couldn’t wash my hair properly before because my arms would get too tired. Now I can wash my hair as many times as I want! My fear has turned into confidence. I’m sure I would have died, as the doctors couldn’t do anything more for me. I never thought I would feel this good, and I feel stronger every day. Okyanos gave me back my quality of life.”
Just 55 miles from US shore, Okyanos Cell Therapy is available to patients suffering with the daily limitations of neuropathy, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, arthritis and other chronic conditions. This innovative procedure is premised on the healing power of adult stem cells isolated from your body fat which have the ability to decrease inflammation, repair damaged tissue, facilitate better cell-to-cell communication and stimulate new blood vessel growth.
“We are honored to share in the wonderful successes of our patients,” says Dr. Todd Malan, Chief Cell Therapy Officer at Okyanos and stem cell therapy pioneer. “As a physician, there is nothing more gratifying than to be able to safely and effectively offer relief and restore function to patients like Paul who simply had no other options for his condition.”
Adds Dr. Matthew Mick, Interventional Cardiologist at Okyanos, “Prior to the option of cell therapy, patients like Gloria who live with chronic, progressive diseases such as heart failure faced a bleak future. Hundreds of published papers and clinical research done with adult stem cells have now afforded us the opportunity to give hope to these patients and their families that they may return to a more normal lifestyle.”
