For many years I have been suffering from chronic pain in my right calf and neck. I tried chiropractors, physios, and many other things to try to get relief. Nothing worked for me.
I met with Dr. Victor and Dr. Praga in San Jose del Cabo, Mexico, after a thorough examination, they cleared me for stem cell therapy. They were very thorough in explaining the procedure and risks. I confirmed everything Dr. Victor told me with my doctor in Vancouver and everything was accurate.
I decided to give stem cells and exosomes a try and following the procedure all the pain is gone. I was so happy that I returned to PRMedica another time to have treatment on my neck and left knee. My pain 90% gone and they tell me it will get better with more time. I am now able to exercise and enjoy a normal life.
I am now ready for my next treatment. I plan to have a full IV infusion and I am bringing my son for possible knee treatment.
Chronic Back Pain:
Have been dealing with chronic back pain for the last 20 years, diagnosed with 5 bulging discs in the lower lumbar with 2 of them ruptured. The treatment that was prescribed to me by Doctor Victor Ocegueda was started with an abdominal implant and following that with an IV Infusion and a few months later with another IV infusion.
I actually read a small article in the Gringo Gazette in Cabo San Lucas and did my research from there, ending up finding out about PRMEDICA, one thing led to another. How do you feel when you have not pain? AMAZING, when you go from having pain on the scale 1 to 10 on the 9 every day, to know pain free life there is no better experience than that… I get to enjoy life again.
The whole experience with PRMEDICA was pretty amazing as well. Dr Victor and staff were very professional, they treated me with great professional courtesies, explaining the procedures and everything very well and I was extremely comfortable with getting the procedure done with no apprehension whatsoever. I will highly recommend PRMEDICA, I mean who will not want to have a pain free life and getting it without surgery, that is the most amazing thing anybody can do.
My Mexican Stem Cell Adventure
The Outcome at 18 Months
I arrived in San Jose del Cabo on February 19, 2019. It had been 13 months since I received my stem cell treatment for two badly damaged knees. Although both knees feel fine most of the time, I continued to experience occasional soreness and a brief, occasional pain. They didn’t feel strong enough for extended walks or even playing golf.
I recall speaking to Dr. Victor about this last spring when I returned to Michigan. He said I should not have any discomfort and wanted me to return to Cabo so he could correct it. I decided the knees were good enough for now. I planned to see him when I returned to Cabo.
I called Dr. Victor as soon as I returned. He arranged for my 1-year checkup. He examined my knees (twisting them in different directions and moving the kneecaps). There was no pain or discomfort from the exam and he said the knees appeared tight, strong and stable.
He then took X-rays, which confirmed his physical examination. The x-rays showed two structurally perfect knees. Bone and cartilage had been totally restored. The knee cap on the left knee had shifted back in place and the bones from the upper and lower legs had moved into alignment. From a structural standpoint, the stem cells therapy had been a complete success.
Dr. Victor said there was no need for any further stem cell therapy. The discomfort I was experiencing was due to inflammation in my ligaments and tendons. He recommended injecting ozone into the knees to reduce the inflammation. He also said it would be necessary for me to strengthen my leg muscles to take pressure off the tendons and ligaments.
The ozone treatments provided some immediate relief. However, it was the leg exercises that did the trick. I was fine as long as I didn’t continue to strain my ligaments and tendons. Once I
returned home I dusted off my old Nordic Track machine. By increasing resistance, the skiing motion has dramatically increased the strength in my legs.
Dr. Victor was correct. The knees now feel great. I’m back to playing golf (although no better than before). While the legs feel fine the good doctor strongly advises me not to run or place any unnecessary strain on the ligaments and tendons.
I intend to take his advice.
Based on my experience I fully endorse Dr. Victor’s expertise with stem cell therapy and encourage others to look into this painless alternative dealing with bad knees. Please be careful and make sure the doctor you talk to has an impressive record of success.
I have severe arthritis in my knees. Several years ago I had to stop playing basketball, soccer and even jogging because my knees felt weak and weren’t able to stand the impact.
Last November I was in San Jose del Cabo, Mexico and was introduced to Dr. Victor Ocegueda at PRMEDICA who has been involved with stem cell therapy for many years. Dr. Victor examined my x-rays and my knees and following an initial diagnosis, he told me my left knee not only had bone and cartilage damage, it was close to being bone on bone. In addition, the ligaments were badly frayed. His analysis of both knees appeared far more thorough than any other doctor I had seen. In spite of the damage, Dr. Victor said he believed stem cell therapy would work. He believed I would need an injection of 50 million stem cells in my left knee and 25 million in my right knee. He was confident the right knee would be as good as new. The left knee would improve, but he was uncertain as to the extent of the improvement.
I committed to go ahead with the procedure in January 2018. The estimated cost for both knees was $6000 US. Ive documented the details of my experience and those interested in reading about it can access the report Mexican Stem Cell Adventure
Towards the end of 6 months my knees much considerably felt stronger. Bottom line, at 6 months after therapy I´m thrilled with the results. I plan to see Dr Victor this winter and write another update at my one year anniversary¨
After hearing local chatter and reviewing their Website, we headed down to Los Cabos, Mexico in April 2018, to PRMEDICA Clinic to be treated with Stem Cell Therapy for my Right Knee.
Dr. Victor Ocegueda patiently listened to my concerns and answered all questions I had as well as those of my husband, from consultation up until the day of the Procedure.
After a thorough Ultrasound Examination performed at the Clinic, Dr. Victor proceeded with my Stem Cell Implant. The implant was placed in my abdomen and served as a booster for my own Stem Cells to prepare for the new Stem Cells. The Doctor then prepared for my Knee Injection. A few minutes later, I was thanking everyone, and heading back home.
I was told I might experience slight swelling for the first couple of days, but mine was minimal and barely noticeable.
I started the progressive therapeutic exercises provided post procedure, to promote movement of my knee, keeping it flexible and the fluids flowing, eventually working up to the strengthening exercises.
Today, I am swimming, jogging and looking forward to heading to the mountains for our Annual Christmas Ski Trip. Can’t wait to show off my new moves on the slopes… thanks to PRMEDICA.
Stem Cell Therapy:
I can’t tell you how ecstatic I am to be back enjoying my active lifestyle. I love Yoga and taking long walks along the Esplanade here in La Paz, our beloved second home in Southern Baja California Mexico.
When we read the advertisement in the local Gringo Gazette newspaper for Stem Cell Therapy at PRMEDICA Clinic in San Jose del Cabo, we contacted them immediately. It was just the help I was looking for.
I had been suffering in silence with my Knees (particularly my Left Knee), but after hearing the horror stories from friends and relatives that had traditional knee replacements, I knew a traditional knee replacement was not something I was willing to settle for. I wanted my life back!
I met with Dr. Victor Ocegueda who reviewed my X-Rays and Blood Work. I met all the criteria to be a good Candidate for Stem Cell Therapy.
My husband and I headed down to San Jose del Cabo for my Left Knee Stem Cell Procedure. The teamwork between the Doctor and his assistant showed great expertise and professionalism. The entire experience was worry-free and before I knew it, I was heading back to La Paz. After a quick trip to Costco, of course!
Post-Procedure instructions were given to be and expertly explained. After a week or so I began the strengthening and therapeutic exercises, and in no time, I was back to my Pre-Treatment Exercise Regimen. I couldn’t be happier. I am looking forward to getting my right knee treated before the New Year, 2019. I refuse to allow my right knee to become as painful as I had allowed my left knee to become
Thank you once again, PRMEDICA, for allowing me to return to the active lifestyle I love. Looking forward to seeing you in November.
Stem Cell Therapy:
I had suffered too long with bad Arthritis in my Hands and Hips.
In January, of this year, my Doctor informed me that I would require both Knee Replacements within the next 5 years. After some lengthy discussions with my friend, Lanie Smith, traditional knee replacement did not seem to be my best option. After some research, I opted to proceed with Stem Cell Therapy for both knees, at PRMEDICA in Los Cabos, Mexico.
I was so pleased with the results. So much so that I also proceeded with the IV Treatment for my Hands and Hips.
I am now back golfing and have never felt better. Thanking you so very much, PRMEDICA, for allowing me to continue enjoying the lifestyle I choose without pain.
I was excited to hear that PRMEDICA offered Stem Cell Therapy AND Ozone Therapy. Originally from Canada, and in the Medical field, I am familiar with the amazing benefits of Stem Cell Therapy as an alternative to Invasive Surgery. Unfortunately, Canada is unable to offer the beneficial Mesenchymal Stem Cells, which, I believe, are the ONLY Stem Cells that have proven results.
As many Snowbirds do, I reside in Southern Baja, Mexico during our Canadian Chilly Season.
I put my fluffy slippers on and headed down to PRMEDICA Clinic in San Jose del Cabo for a Stem Cell Implant in my abdomen. This serves to boost my own stem cells, which helps provide excellent results. I also had an Ozone Injection in my Foot. The Ozone Treatment immediately relieved the excruciating pain I had been suffering.
I will return to Los Cabos mid-October. I will be heading back to PRMEDICA for the Ozone Treatment Package (programmed multi-sessions), which provides long-term relief of my foot pain.
I am also going to treat myself to their new DERMIBLAST PLUS FACELIFT (with Stem Cells, PRP & Dermiblast). They sent me information about this exciting new offering and will receive treatment at their additional new Clinic in Cabo San Lucas. See you guys soon!
Stem Cell Therapy:
We highly recommend Barry Russell (Stem Cell Co-Ordinator) and Dr. Victor Ocegueda, at PRMEDICA in Los Cabos Mexico, for their expertise in Stem Cell Therapy.
I had a knee replacement, more than 3 years ago. However, had I known about Stem Cell Therapy at the time, I would have opted for that, before having ANY Invasive Surgery. Your knee is never the same after replacement hardware is implanted. Having said that, I choose to have Stem Cells injected into my other knee or eventually I was headed toward another traditional knee replacement.
I had had a recent fall, which resulted in multiple torn ligaments. That is when I researched and heard about Stem Cell Therapy in Los Cabos, located in Baja California Sur, MEXICO. My husband had a recent Scope done on his knee but continued to have problems with no relief. That is when we decided we both would proceed with Stem Cell Therapy. We had our procedures at different times, and neither of us have had any problems since!!! So much improvement.
We have since recommended numerous friends who have all come to Los Cabos to have procedures done on their Knees, Shoulders, Backs, Hands, Hips, Ankles, and to relieve Arthritic pain. No-one has been disappointed. So much so that they too are recommending the procedures to their friends.
We reside in Kamloops, Canada. People have asked us why we didn’t have the procedures done in Canada or the United States. We tell them we did our research and neither country has undergone the years of testing, unlike Mexico, Germany, Panama and many other Countries, whom have done studies for 25-30 years.
Another important factor is cost. The costs in Canada and the United States are approximately 3-4 times more expensive. And the therapies in these countries use your own tired stem cells. The Stem Cells therapy provided at PRMEDICA uses a process where new healthy stem cells are implanted, which boost both success and stimulate your own stem cells. Our neighbor underwent Stem Cell Therapy here in Kamloops, Canada, using his own cells. Unfortunately, the procedure was not successful and the cost? …$10,000.00 Dollars! He was in Mexico this past March and injured his knee again. Not knowing about the advances in Stem Cell Therapy, he had a traditional knee replacement done while in Mexico.
I could go on and on, but I think you get the idea…it works! Why have an invasive operation, as many or our friends have, when you have an alternative. I recommend trying this therapy first. What have you got to lose?
Dr. Victor Ocegueda in bilingual and discusses the procedures in length and takes the time to answer all your questions. He and staff make sure you thoroughly understand the procedure as well as the post procedure therapies. PRMEDICA performs and reviews blood work, X-Rays and Ultrasound prior to procedures to make sure you are a good candidate for the procedure before proceeding. Dr. Victor Ocegueda talks openly and honestly as to whether the procedure will be of benefit to you and will not proceed with any procedure if he feels it will not help you. I find some doctors in Canada are in it for the money rather than the good of the patient.
I hope I have addressed any concerns or questions you may have about the Stem Cell Therapy provided by PRMEDICA. We highly recommend them.
