Overview of HBOT
HBOT stands for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. It is a medical treatment that enhances the body’s natural healing process by inhalation of 100% oxygen in a total body chamber, where atmospheric pressure is increased and controlled. It is used for a wide variety of treatments for indications like Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Multiple Sclerosis, Migraine, Sports Injuries, Thermal Burns, Blast Injury etc.
Bone Marrow Transplant
A Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT) is a medical procedure of injecting blood-forming healthy stem cells into the body to replace diseased bone marrow. It is also called a hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT). BMT is done if there are serious immune deficiencies, bone marrow cancer, bone marrow failure syndromes, thalassemia, other haematological disorders or genetic metabolic disorders.
The muscular dystrophies (MD) are a group of inherited genetic conditions that gradually cause muscles to weaken, leading to an increasing level of disability. MD is progressive which means that the condition worsens over time. It is caused by a genetic fault that prevents the production of a protein called dystrophin.
A cerebral palsy is a group of disorders that affect movement and muscle tone or posture. It’s caused by damage that occurs to the immature brain as it develops, most often before birth. It refers to a brain injury or disorders that affect a person’s ability to move thus making the brain non-progressive. It is a condition that results from injuries or abnormalities of the brain, mostly in the mother’s womb or occurs at any time during 2 years after birth.
Autism Spectrum Disorder
Autism, or autism spectrum disorder (ASD), refers to a broad range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviours, speech and nonverbal communication. Because autism is a spectrum disorder, each person with autism has a distinct set of strengths and challenges.
Regenerative Medicine with Stem cell transplantation helps the natural healing process to work faster and better as well as to produce extended healthy longer life. The repairing process involves vasculogenesis. We at Manaaki, work with adult stem cells, these are your stem cells that leave no chance of rejections by your body, or by any other means. They are safe transplants.
Transplanted stem cells migrate to the site of the injury and bring about the essential repair. The formation of collateral blood vessels is also believed to be fundamental in the recovery of most diseased tissues treated with stem cells. Stem cell therapy is the famous, leading and productive treatment option for various degenerative ailments using stem cells. Manaaki provides well- experienced doctors for stem cell therapies.
Stem cell transplant offered includes bone marrow transplant, peripheral blood stem cell transplant, umbilical cord blood transplant.
Teams of expert hemato-oncologist at our partner hospitals have extensive experience in both adult and paediatric Bone Marrow/ stem cell transplants.
Our partners have an exceptional track record and has treated patients from across the world.
The multi-specialty approach followed by the hospitals means the BMT team works closely with allied specialists to ensure appropriate care is provided to patients both pre and post the procedure.
We are also associated with centres offering umbilical cord blood transplant and cord blood storage.
Key conditions treated with BMT are Acute Myeloid Leukemia, Acute Lymphoid Leukemia, Anaplastic Anaemia, Multiple Myeloma, Lymphoma, Immunodeficiency Disorders, Thalassemia, and Congenital Storage and Metabolism Disorders.
Types of Bone Marrow/Stem Cell Transplants Offered are Autologous Bone Marrow Transplant, Allogeneic Bone Marrow Transplant, Peripheral Blood Stem Cell Transplant, Umbilical Cord Blood Transplant, and Non-Myeloablative or Mini Stem Cell Transplants for older patients and those with multiple health problems.
