Read a review from Joyce Tucker updating Celltex on her progress nine months after receiving stem cell therapy.

Dear David,

It has been nine months since my stem cell treatment with Celltex Therapeutics for ankle and knee degeneration to the point of immobility and constant pain. In December, 2014, I was not able to walk up or down one flight of stairs. December 18, 2014 was my stem cell treatment day. The first month I could feel changes, but not improvements, in my joints. Movements that hurt before no longer experienced pain while previously pain free motions now would hurt or ache. The second month, I began to have improvement. The third month the improvements came daily. By the end of March, 2015, I could wear any shoe in my closet whereas I had worn only one pair of shoes for almost 15 months previously. No orthotics, NO PAIN, no immobility, no brace, no cane. I felt I had experienced within three (3) months a 95% improvement.

I live on the 39th floor in a high rise condominium in Houston. For two years prior to the stem cell treatment in December, 2014, I could not manage one flight of stairs, steps, or curbs. In May, 2015, only six months later, there was a false fire alarm in my building. I didn’t know that it was unnecessary to vacate the building only the floors above and below your own home. I walked down thirty nine (39) flights of stairs with no assistance and no consequences.

My traditional Orthopedist says that he has never seen the regrowth of cartilage that I have experienced…until now. For those who are researching stem cells, I would like for you to post this on your web site to add validity to your treatments and stem cell therapy. It has completely restored the quality of my life.

Hi David,

Thank you very much for encouraging me to utilize Celltex last fall. In 2013, I had stem cell injections in Houston through another company with a point of service extraction and injection which provided some improvement. In 2014, in my treatment with a stem cell clinic out of state, I went to Grand Cayman for bone marrow extractions but never had the therapy done. There were lots of concerns with that experience. Personal knowledge with these two clinics gave me an opportunity for a vis-a-vis evaluation of Celltex. While I could cite numerous examples, suffice it to say that Celltex is an excellent stem cell clinic and the others cannot compare.

During my stem cell therapy through Celltex, I had an infusion and injections in both ankles and both knees. Since the therapy date on December 18th, 2014 I have already experienced improvement at several levels and it continues. I noticed an elevated energy level within forty-eight hours after the infusion. My joints are experiencing positive change which is coming in slower increments…but it is occurring. I am hopeful for much success with this therapy.

One of the things I found most beneficial is the referral by Dr. Jones to Dr. Theodore Piliszek prior to the stem cell therapy. My blood tests revealed some major concerns and deficiencies. By the time I met with Dr. Piliszek I had already had the fat extraction completed and the stem cells banked. Dr. Piliszek helped me make remarkable improvement in my health within the two months prior to my stem cell therapy in December.

Please accept my sincere thanks for your introduction to Celltex. If I can be of any support for Celltex, please do not hesitate to contact me.
