Since their discovery in the 1960s, stem cells have been seen as a potential treatment for everything from aging to autoimmune diseases. While research has mainly focused on physical conditions, Springs Rejuvenation in Atlanta has launched new therapies that work to slow or stop the symptoms of cognitive decline as well.

The new therapy options combine the use of induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (iPSCs), and exosomes, which can stimulate healing and mediate the body’s natural immune response. Though research is still ongoing to find the limits of these therapies, recent studies suggest they may treat an extensive range of mental health conditions by helping to repair or regrow damaged neurons.
Though stem cell treatments are not common practice for cognitive conditions yet, this is mostly due to their being a recent development that has not yet been optimized for production at such a large scale. As one recent research paper explained (1), “Using stem cells appears likely to become a key feature of future clinical strategies for treating neurodegenerative disease by replacing dysfunctional neurons and affording neuroprotective and neurorestorative functions.”
Dr. Charles Pereyra MD, a regenerative medicine expert at Springs Rejuvenation, has used stem cells to treat conditions ranging from injured joints and bones, to autoimmune diseases and more. The clinic focuses on highly individualized therapies using non-invasive methods, and taking a proactive, regenerative approach, using stem cells to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes.
Research and new developments are ongoing on the effectiveness of stem cell therapy at treating neurological conditions. Though many researchers believe they are the best candidate for many difficult to treat diseases, such as Alzheimer’s. Attempts have been made to transplant, regrow, or replace damaged neurons using other techniques, but stem cells have been shown as the most effective so far. As one researcher explained (2), “They are considered to be the most suitable choice to provide uniform and unique cells required for cell replacement therapy.”
