Stem cell treatments therapy in Istanbul Turkey

Stem Cell Treatments Istanbul Turkey


At this time, in the field of “Stem Cell”, where amazing developments are taking place on the way to becoming one of the most important treatment options in modern medicine, “Liv Hospital Regenerative Medicine Stem Cell Center” provides service, where personalized cells and stem cells for cellular treatment can be produced at international standards in hospital conditions for the first time in Turkey as Liv Hospital.

Believing in the importance of interdisciplinary cooperation in this field, which covers all branches of medicine institutionally, the hospital sets out with scientists and physicians who make important contributions to universal science in this field in our country, and it aims to offer our patients cell-stem, cell-tissue engineering products and approved treatment options in the field of gene treatments in future within the framework of scientific and ethical rules.

  • What are stem cells?

Cells that have the potential to transform into different cell types and renew themselves are called “stem cells”. Stem cells have two important features; First, these cells can divide to renew themselves over long periods of time, millions of cells can arise from a single stem cell. Secondly, a stem cell cannot work with its neighbors to pump blood throughout the body, as in heart muscle, cannot carry oxygen to tissues such as red blood cells, or transmit the necessary electro-chemical signals to tissues and organs such as nerve cells. However, non-specialized stem cells can originate from specialized cells such as heart muscle cells, blood cells or nerve cells.

  • Where are the stem cells obtained?

Although stem cells are theoretically obtained from many tissues and organs, in present, the most widely used sources in treatment-purposed stem cell applications are; bone marrow, umbilical cord, joint fluid or membrane, and umbilical adipose tissue.

  • How are stem cells produced in the lab environment?

Stem cells are produced in the laboratory using a (autologous) biopsy sample taken from the patient’s own tissue related to the disease. First of all, the relevant cells are isolated from this biopsy sample and multiplied by being fed continuously and undergoing detailed controls under appropriate conditions. Another method is the production of cells from another donor (allogeneic), for example from the umbilical cord of a newborn baby, by culturing and propagating under GMP conditions.

  • How commen is stem cell treatment so far?

Stem cell treatments have ben tried around the globus about 20 years, specificly in the last years, it has started to become widespread. Nevertheless, such treatments can be applied with cellular products produced in licensed and certified centers like Live Hospital in Istanbul.

  • What are the age limits of stem cell treatments?

Stem cell treatments are generally eveluated accoding to the patient’s age, disease, and clinical conditions. It is necessary to evaluate all factors together.

  • Who is the doctor offering the treatments?

Prof. Dr. Erdal Karaöz

Prof. Dr. Erdal Karaöz

Prof. Dr. Erdal Karaöz is the head of the stem cell department in Liv Hospital Ulus Istanbul Turkey. He is the leading doctor national and one of the best wordwide in his field. His CV you find here.

  • How long does it take to produce stem cells?

Production times vary according to the tissue from which stem cells are obtained and the processing method. It may take up to 4-6 weeks for the stem cells to be separated from a biopsy sample taken from a tissue, cultured and multiplied in the required number and being ready for transplantation. Normally there would be two shots, between of them approximitelly two weeks.

  • What are the costs for stem cells?

It depends of course on which treatment and on conditions. The price is to define for each case individually. Stem cell treatments in Istanbul costs approximitelly from 5000 up to 30000 Euro. All Price are subject to be changed without prior notification.
