Worldwide, people are increasingly interested in regenerative medicine or stem cell therapies. To meet this interest, Mayo Clinic established the Regenerative Medicine Consult Service — the first consult service of its kind in the United States.
This service provides people with educational guidance and appropriate referrals to research studies and clinical trials in stem cell therapies. Indications for a regenerative medicine consult include, but are not limited to degenerative and congenital diseases of the heart, liver, pancreas and lungs in which the patient or clinician has questions about the value of stem cell-based therapies.
Patients and health care providers are informed of existing regenerative services at Mayo Clinic and, when appropriate, patients are referred to research studies at Mayo Clinic and elsewhere.
