Hear from a Parkinson's patient on stem cell therapy
VIDEO: Stefan DesLauries’ Testimonial
This testimonial includes a description of this patient’s actual medical results.
These results may not be typical or expected for any other patient.
Are you or loved one suffering from Parkinson's Disease?
The Royal Medical Clinic is conducting investigational trials on the impact of autologous stem cell* treatments on Parkinson’s Disease. Initial treatments have demonstrated promising results, often reversing symptoms and allowing patients to live fuller more productive lives.
Parkinson’s Disease is a degenerative disorder of the central nervous system that affects more than one million Americans. The death of certain cells within the brain causes a range of devastating neurological effects on motor-coordination, cognitive function and behavior. Till date physicians have only been able to ameliorate symptoms. They have not been able change the course of the disease.
Recent research though has changed the prognosis. Today there is hope. Sooner than we may have ever imagined there may be a simple way to reverse the course of the disease - and perhaps even cure it.
Scientists around the world are exploring the influence of a patient’s own stem cells as an effective therapy for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease. In the investigational trial being conducted by The Royal Medical Clinic, each patient receives a series of autologous stem cell treatments. Stem cells are simply extracted from a patient’s blood and reintroduced into the body intravenously. The length of treatment for each patient may vary from a few weeks to a few months, depending on the severity of the symptoms.
Even though the initial results have benefited many patients, The Royal Medical Clinic cannot guarantee the efficacy or safety of the treatment for any individual patient.
The trial is being led by Dr. Dan Royal of The Royal Medical Clinic located in Henderson, Nevada. The trial is conducted on site at the clinic and potential patients will need to travel to the site to participate.
There are many factors that determine if you or a loved one is a qualified candidate for this investigational trial. We recommend that you contact one of our medical facilitators to arrange a confidential in-depth conversation with our consulting physician, Dr. Steven Levy. He will be able to answer your questions. In addition, Dr. Levy can also speak with your own physician to determine if this trail is right for you.
The world of medicine is always changing. Every year there are breakthroughs that change the paradigm of what is possible. What were once seen as miracles are today’s everyday medicine. We hope that the research being done at The Royal Medical Clinic will soon lead to therapies that will make the devastating scourge of Parkinson’s Disease a part of medical history.

*A “stem cell” is one of the human body's master cells in that it has the ability to grow into any one of 200 different types of cells. Stem cells are undifferentiated cells that retain the ability to divide throughout life and give rise to more specialized cells that can take the place of other cells that die or are lost. In this way, stem cells contribute to the body's ability to renew and repair its tissues. Unlike mature cells, which are permanently committed to their fate, stem cells can both renew themselves as well as create new cells. For example, bone marrow stem cells are the most primitive cells in the marrow from which all other types of blood cells are created. Yet, stem cells from bone marrow can also give rise to non-marrow cells (e.g., muscle, bone, etc.). Stem cells can also be obtained from other body tissues (e.g., fat). When stem cells are taken from, and returned to, the same patient, the procedure is called “autologous.” This usage of autologous stem cells is generally considered to be safe and is a commonly used practice today in medicine.
