How It Works
Four Steps to Simple, Safe & Secure
Your stem cell banking and therapy process is designed to be efficient, easy, and pain and stress free.
Below are four simple steps that outline what to expect.
Each person’s condition is different. That’s why, during your initial appointment, our client services team and highly trained medical group will develop an individualized therapy plan tailored to your unique needs.
Enrollment & Banking
After enrollment, your banking process begins with blood work to determine if you qualify for banking. If you qualify, you will select an experienced physician from our nationwide network of adipose tissue (fat) extraction centers.
Then you will undergo a simple, 30-minute outpatient procedure to extract your mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). Your MSCs will then be cryopreserved in Celltex’s Houston-based, FDA-registered laboratory.
Your client services coordinator will contact you to schedule your therapy, travel and transport of your MSCs to Hospital Galenia, a state-of-the-art hospital in Cancun, Mexico. Celltex staff and a licensed physician will be on-site to assist throughout your visit.
Celltex will schedule regular check-ins on your progress, results and any post-therapy needs. While therapy varies, most clients will immediately resume their normal day-to-day activities.

Frequently Asked Questions
Still have questions?
Here are a few of the questions people frequently ask about Celltex stem cell banking and therapy.
If you don't see your question here, view our full list.
Why should someone bank his or her stem cells?
While you may not have a condition that requires immediate treatment with stem cells, it’s smart to plan for the future. As you age, illness and the natural processes of aging can reduce the number of stem cells available. While older cells can still be viable and useful, generally, the younger you are when you bank, the more efficient, active and mobile your cells are.
How often do I need to receive therapy?
This is dependent on individual conditions. Our client services department and your doctors will work with you to determine the best timeline for your individual therapy schedule.
Are my cells eligible to be used for therapy?
The earlier you bank your stem cells, the more efficient, active and mobile they are to use in case of future emergency, illness, injury or accidents. Banking your cells now provides the opportunity to utilize your younger, healthy cells later in life.
Where do stem cells come from?
There are stem cells in practically every tissue of your body, but not all stem cells are the same. At Celltex, we focus exclusively on a type of stem cell called mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). MSCs can be found in practically every tissue of your body and are most readily taken from bone marrow, umbilical cord blood, placenta and fat. You can learn more about stem cells on our Stem Cells 101 page.
Is stem cell therapy safe?
Dozens of clinical trials conducted by researchers in more than a dozen nations have demonstrated the safety of using MSCs and, in particular, those obtained from fat, and hundreds of preclinical animal studies have confirmed the same findings. You can learn more on our Stem Cells 101 page.
