Surgery

Undergoing any kind of surgery is traumatic and involves certain risks that must be carefully considered before giving consent. Many patients are worried about postoperative infections, some of which are actually contracted in the hospital. MRSA and other Staph infections regularly make the headlines. For this reason, it is important to have an intact and strong immune system to assure the best possible outcome. This is where cell therapies can play an important role.

Surgery and Live Cell Therapy

Some studies have shown that cell therapy can help reduce postoperative infections. Certain types of surgery such as colorectal surgery, abdominal surgery and orthopedic surgery carry a high risk of postoperative infections. Patients who underwent these surgeries and were treated with thymus live cell extract, in addition to standard antibiotic therapy, showed a significantly lower incidence of postoperative infection.
