Traveling4Health&Retirement spotlights Stem Cell Therapy in China on the Know Before You Go Radio Show airing Sunday, April 8, 4PM to 5PM Eastern Time. Listen online at Overseasradio.com or on any smart device without having to download an app.

Select Click Here to Listen Live to hear Ilene Little, CEO of Traveling 4 Health And Retirement, interview an American risk-management consultant who gives China top billing for Stem Cell Therapy.

Featured guest, David Mair, is CEO of Soter Healthcare, and a subject expert on Stem Cell Therapy.

Mairs qualifications as a subject expert in global medical resources reach as far back as 1987 when, up until 2002, he was the Director of Risk Management for the U.S. Olympic Committee.

With over 25 years as a risk management consultant and several years’ experience working with Medex Global Group and China Connection Global Healthcare, Mair brings unique and credentialed expertise to the field of medical travel.

Fast-forward to 2012. Mair is founder of Soter Healthcare, a pioneer in delivery of destination medical services for people seeking improved medical outcomes, prompt access to specialty physicians and hospitals, and affordable care.

What Mair brings to the table for the benefit of employers and individual patients is his long-standing connections in the insurance industry and his unique medical contacts throughout the world.

One of the things we do here at Soter is try to coordinate benefits to the greatest degree that we can with our clients insurance company, said Mair, Weve actually created our own insurance plan that businesses can purchase as part of their group benefits structure.

On several occasions Mair successfully negotiated with a clients insurance company to cover the cost of care in medical travel destinations like China. When you talk about cost, he says, Its a good point to talk about both insured and un-insured payments for care in China.

Cost of Stem Cell Therapy in China:

Mair quotes ball-park figures in the interview. For example, for Cerebral Palsy, a typical treatment plan with the hospitals we use in China is going to be in the mid $ 30,000. Some of that may be insured, depending on the nature of care. For diabetes, its in the range of $ 17,000 depending upon the condition of the patient, he said.

Mair is passionate about the advantages of stem cell therapy for certain conditions, and he lists several of those conditions in the interview.

The first patient he sent to China for stem cell therapy was in 2009; his 10-year old niece who suffered from cerebral palsy. Read Sending My Niece to China for Stem Cell Surgery. The results were amazing, said Mair, and we were able to get two-thirds of the cost of her care in China covered by insurance, reports Mair.

By electing to have stem cell therapy the niece avoided having an orthopedic procedure with a long and painful recovery. Before Stem Cell Therapy, she was mostly wheelchair-bound, said Mair.

He reports, Today she walks with a single crutch. She now can use her left-hand independently for major motor skill range of motions. She walks extended distances, her stamina and walking gait are far better, her vision and voice modulate is much better, and she is reading at her grade-level.

Listen as Mair lists several conditions that are effectively treated with stem cell therapy, including cerebral palsy, Parkinson’s disease, Stoke, MS, heart disease and diabetes. He also talks about conditions for which stem cell therapy is still in the investigative stage and not yet proven to be worthwhile.

Stem Cell Therapy is a hot topic on the Traveling4health&Retirement Community. And yet, we caution members that there is no magic stem cell bullet.

No magic bullet procedures for which stem cells are not yet proven to work:

Mair is passionate about the advantages of stem cell therapy for certain conditions, and he lists several of those conditions in the interview.

While stem cell therapy is a very promising field of medicine it certainly is not for everyone or for everything, said Mair. He named ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) and spinal cord injury as being two conditions where stem cell therapies dont currently rise to the level of being worth the expense today.

The use of stem cells for spinal cord, even internationally, is in the investigative stage, and I wouldnt want to leave the impression with your listening audience that it is well-defined or it is distinctly showing positive results, said Mair.

There are some folks that have experienced some things that are positive. Were still watching that, he said, but were not convinced that for ALS or spinal cord injuries that stem cell therapy is anything other than a hope.

Restrictions on Stem Cell Therapy in China:

According to Mair, the Chinese placed a restriction on stem cell treatment early this year so that the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Science could effectively evaluate each of these stem cell centers that were purporting to provide care.

What the Chinese want to do is to rein in those folks that are advertising and marketing to patients senses of desperation, rather than being able to offer legitimate care, said Mair.

The hospitals we use continue to be accredited and certified for stem cell treatment. And, in fact, none of the top centers have experienced any significant restrictions, Mair said, We have seen a few hospitals, however, where their stem cell treatment centers have been completely shut down.

As is the case in the U.S., says Mair, It is also true internationally that there are some outstanding hospitals that are doing very good work, and there are some that are not so good.

Tips on Researching Stem Cell Therapy:

Its going to be exceedingly difficult for someone who is casually researching or not a specialist in stem cell therapy in China to be able to follow all of the developments regarding China regulations on stem cell procedures.

Says, Ilene Little, “I would caution listeners to look for and seek help from people who specialize in the type of medical procedure you require to guide your choice of a medical destination and a high-quality hospital for the medical treatment.”

“If you know anyone or have a loved one who would benefit from knowing more about stem cell therapy as a treatment option, dont miss this program,” says Little.
