New Groundbreaking Development at Laniado Hospital – Stem Cells from Patient’s Blood Aid in Saving Limbs from Amputation

A new and exciting development in Laniado Hospital, Netanya, Israel:  Stem cells taken from a patient’s blood and returned to his limb, successfully created new blood cells in the patient’s body avoiding amputation of that limb. This technology, a joint effort by BioGenCell and Laniado Hospital, benefits the treatment of Critical Limb Ischemia (CLI) – the insufficient flow of small blood vessels into the leg; a complication found mostly in diabetic patients and smokers causing gangrene and wounds on the foot, which in many cases leads to amputation of the […]
