Minimally Invasive Brain Repair + Stem Cell Implantation
Diseases can be treated:
What is Minimally Invasive Brain Repair?
Minimally Invasive Brain Repair is the latest surgical approach to treat neurological diseases. This procedure is performed under stereotactic techniques, with guidance of advanced imaging system. With the development of technology, stereotaxis is able to perform multi-dimensional reconstruction to CT, MRI and other imaging information via computer. It allows surgeons to have better ideas of the lesion location and make more accurate surgical plans. Real-time imaging system makes the treatment plan even more objective and accurate.
The purpose is to put microelectrode or puncture needle into specific target spot inside brain, to diagnose and treat all kinds of central nervous system diseases.
What is Stem Cell Transplantation?
Neural Stem Cells (NSCs) is the most ideal transplant material for neurological diseases due to its unique biological features: differentiation, migration, chemotaxis and very low immunogenicity.
As an undifferentiated multipotent cell, neural stem cells have the following functions:
1-Replace those lost cells in the process of aging, injury and diseases;
2-Supplement the damaged neural cells;
3-Delay or inhibited the central nervous system damage;
4-Repair the damaged neural system to improve patient’s recovery.
The combination of Minimally Invasive Brain Repair + Stem Cell Implantation
Neurosurgery team of Beijing Puhua International Hospital applied this technology to treat certain kinds of neurological conditions, including Autism, Brain Injury, Cerebral Palsy, Parkinson's Disease, Seizure Disorder/Epilepsy, Torsion-spasm.
This combination, on one hand, is able to accurately damage/destroy the lesion that leads to patient’s symptoms; on the other hand, stem cells injected directly into the lesion can replace the dead cells and repair the injured cells.
The advantages of stereotactic surgery are: high accuracy and minimally invasive.
Over the past 5 years, we’ve treated 500+ cases, 90% of them gained significant improvement after the treatment.
Dr. Zengmin Tian—Director of Stereotactic and Functional Surgery
Dr. Tian is the former Vice-president of Navy General Hospital, PLA China. He was also the Director of Neurosurgery Dept. when he was in Navy General Hospital. Dr. Tian has been devoting himself in scientific research and clinical application of stereotactic surgery for more than 30 years. In 1997, he had successfully completed the first brain repair surgery with the guidance of robot operation system. Since then, he had performed over 10,000 brain repair surgeries and had taken part in National Research Projection. In recent years, Dr. Tian has successfully applied the 6th generation of brain surgery robot to clinical treatment. This 6th generation brain surgery robot is able to accurately position the lesion with frameless positioning system. A further combination of brain repair surgery with stem cell implantation increased the clinical treatment effects by 30~50%. Dr. Tian’s this breakthrough was reported by American Popular Science magazine.
Until now, he has successfully completed thousands repair operations of brain and spine. Mainly for a variety of severe brain damage, such as: cerebral palsy, cerebellum atrophy, sequelae of brain injury, Parkinson's disease, autism, epilepsy, hydrocephalic, etc. His patients come from more than 20 countries around the world. His surgery robot has international patents, acquired China’s product permit of medical equipment license. His remarkable contribution and distinguished achievements made him renowned both at home and overseas: Executive committee of International Society for Neurosurgical Academy; Editorial Board Member of International Journal of Stereotactic Surgery; Senior Visiting Scholar in University of Washington.
