After seeing the beneficial impact of stem cells on both spinal cord injury and neurological conditions, the Verita Neuro team decided to develop LamiSpine, a treatment which harnesses this and made it more focused and targeted. For a group of patients who have been considered untreatable, LamiSpine finally offers a potential solution.
The procedure begins with a “laminectomy”, which is the removal of a small, targeted section of your vertebra called the ‘lamina’. This exposes the injured area and allows more direct access. Following the laminectomy, high potency stem cells, which have been cultured and purified by our expert partner laboratories, are injected directly into the injured spinal cord tissue.
The length of time in surgery varies depending on a number of factors, such as the location of injury and type of anaesthesia required etc. Post-operative recovery varies but can be as short as a few days. The procedure is followed by 25 days of intensive physical therapy, led by our in-house specialist physio team. This helps clients to get back on their feet and regain various functions
