What to Expect

In this video, you can watch Dr. Riordan’s 2019 discussion on Stem Cells: Their Role in Aging and the Treatment of Chronic Diseases. He covers the main types of stem cells, highlights several clinical trials, and talks specifically about stem cell therapy at the Stem Cell Institute in Panama City, Panama.

The last time we were able to host an educational seminar was in 2019. Since then stem cell therapy has taken the world by storm, with well known celebrities such as our patient Tony Robbins and Joe Rogan, whose mother is also our patient, both promoting it as an alternative to invasive treatment and surgeries. We are thrilled to gather in-person again to hear from some of the world’s leading experts about the future of stem cell therapy.
