Autism patients coming for stem cell therapy to one of our partner hospitals have either physical deficiencies, behavioral deficiencies, or both. It is our doctors’ recommendation that autism patients are better served to get therapy at a younger age when they are still in their developmental phase. Any improvement from therapy can greatly help during this critical period of time.
Because autism is not a progressive condition, it is possible for the improvements to last for a long period of time. Some patients experience immediate benefits soon after the start of therapy while others steadily improve even after returning home. As with any form of stem cell therapy, there is the possibility of minimal/no improvement, and we encourage patients and caregivers to maintain realistic expectations for the therapy. Upon receiving medical information, our doctors can give additional guidance about the therapy’s appropriateness.
