Stem Cell Treatment for Spinal Cord Injury
The aim of our treatment is to regenerate the nerve cells that were damaged in patient’s spinal cord after the original injury by using stem cell transplantation. To do so, stem cells are injected in great quantity through IVs and lumbar punctures in order to better target the damaged area.
Optionally and in addition to stem cell transplantation, we are providing a cutting edge epidural stimulation technology that helps electrical signals to bypass the injury site, thus easing the communication between the brain and body parts below the injury.
Please note that before considering stem cell therapy and epidural stimulation, the patient should have undergone any surgery recommended by local doctors such as spine decompressive surgery.
Our stem cell therapy for spinal cord injury can potentially bring improvements in Motor Function, Sensations, Neuropathic Pain, Bladder & Bowel, Spasticity and Sweating Ability.* Upon receiving your medical information our doctors can give you additional guidance regarding your/your relative’s particular condition.

Epidural Stimulation Procedure
In addition to the stem cell treatment, Beike Biotech in cooperation with BBH is providing Epidural Stimulation for SCI patients. The procedure consist in implementing a little device called epidural stimulator near the spinal cord in order to help signals to travel more easily along the spinal cord.
Beike Biotechnology is partnered with the Better Being Hospital (BBH) in Bangkok, Thailand, to provide the most extensive treatment available for our patients. This partnership brings stem cells therapy to another level as BBH is the first accredited center in Asia for functional medicine. Read more about BBH
The medical team at the center uses a combination of two injection methods for our patients diagnosed with Spinal Cord Injury: intravenous and lumbar puncture. More information about each type of injection below:
Intravenous Injection (IV)
The Intravenous (IV) delivery method is a very simple process and should already be familiar to most patients. A tubing line with a catheter tip threaded over a needle is placed into the patient’s vein. Once proper placement is obtained, the needle portion is removed and the flexible plastic catheter is left in place in the vein with the tubing attached. The stem cell solution mixed with the cord blood serum will be administered through the IV (after the evaluation by local medical staff, Dexamethasone may be considered beforehand to avoid any potential allergic reactions). Typically no sedation is required for this procedure. The entire IV injection process takes less than 45 minutes to complete.
Lumbar Puncture (LP)
A lumbar puncture is also commonly referred to as a spinal tap. It is a procedure used to access the cerebrospinal fluid of the brain and spinal cord and helps to deliver stem cells directly into the cerebral spinal fluid, bypassing the blood-brain barrier. Our doctors have determined that this is the least invasive method for delivering stem cells directly into the central nervous system. Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) is used by the body to provide protection for the brain and spinal cord, limiting the possibility of injury to these areas. The body constantly produces CSF and thus any withdrawn fluid is naturally replaced within a few hours.
Epidural Stimulation Procedure
In addition to the stem cell treatment, we are providing Epidural Stimulation for SCI patients. The procedure consist in implementing a little device called epidural stimulator near the spinal cord in order to help signals to travel more easily along the spinal cord.
Below are video interviews recorded during treatment with Beike stem cells regarding patient experience including the improvements they have noticed following the treatment. The improvements mentioned in these videos are typical in patients with Spinal Cord Injury, however it does not guarantee that all patients may have improvement.
