Degenerative Disc Disease

in Malaysia

The Rickety Bridge

Think of your spine as a magnificent bridge, holding you upright and allowing you to waltz gracefully through life. But, over time, the bearings (discs) between your girders and decking (vertebrae) get thinner and thinner, causing your girders and decking (vertebrae) to groan and creak as they rub against each other. All this rubbing also causes rust (fibroids) to form on your bearings (discs), effectively, putting an end to your waltzing days.


Treatment Methods

01The Maintenance

To get your magnificent bridge (spine) performing optimally, you get temporary shock absorbers installed (steroid and pain injections). However, you find that you have to constantly replace these shock absorbers (steroid and pain injections) just to keep your girders and decking (vertebrae) from groaning and creaking. You even contemplate tearing the whole bridge down and rebuilding it (artificial disc replacement) or installing support beams to limit the groaning and creaking (spinal fusion), which means you may never waltz again!

02The Upgrade

So, before you take that irreversible leap, you finally call a structural engineer, who recommends that you have a new-fangled type of upgrade (wjMSCs). This upgrade (wjMSCs) will refurbish your bearings (discs), making them nice and tall, as well as use anti-rust (proteoglycans) and lubricants (hyaluronic acid) to keep your bearings (discs) slick and smooth, preventing your girders and decking (vertebrae) from rubbing against each other, so you never have to install temporary shock absorbers (steroid and pain injections) ever again.


Talk to Your Primary Doctor First

They're pros who can give you personalized advice and recommend the latest treatment options that suit your unique condition.

One Size Does Not Fit All

Our doctors decide how many wjMSCs, the transfusion method, and the rounds of treatment that you need based on your medical records. So, be sure to send them to your patient liaison.

Research Findings

Multiple universities and institutions from across the globe have examined the efficacy of using wjMSCs to treat degenerative disc disease and reported promising outcomes.

Tokai University School of Medicine, Japan
Increased disc height by 91% and MRI signal intensity by 81%, indicating that water had been attracted to the region.
Centro Médico Teknon, Spain
Decreased pain and disability by 85%.
General Hospital of Armed Police Force, China
Immediate improvement in pain and functionality. Visual Analog Scale (VAS) and Oswestry Disability Index (ODI) remained decreased two years after therapy.
Mesoblast Limited, Australia
Decreased lower back pain and improved functionality for 12 months, decreased dependence on pain medication, increased disc stability, and decreased the need for surgical and non-surgical interventions.
Rocky Mountain Orthopedic Associates, United States
Decreased Oswestry Disability Index (ODI) and Visual Analog Scale (VAS) scores from 56.5 to 25.0 and 79.3 to 33.2, respectively, for 12 months.
CHA University, South Korea
Significantly increased disc water content in 12 weeks.
Navy General Hospital, China
Significantly improved and halted the progression of disc height reduction as well as promoted the formation of disc matrix components (aggrecan and type II collagen), proteins that are critical for providing discs with structure and support.
Melbourne Stem Cell Centre, Australia
Seven (78%) of participants reported reductions in pain 12 months after treatment. Five (56%) reported increased work capacity. Three (33%) reduced analgesic medication. Improvements in EQ-5D and Oswestry disability index results were observed. MRI demonstrated no further disc degeneration and improvements to annular fissures and disc protrusions.
