Hi @jlsoerensOne of the focus areas on Mayo Clinic's Regenerative Medicine Program is in neuroregeneration. You can read more here: https://www.mayo.edu/research/centers-programs/center-regenerative-medicine/focus-areas/neuroregeneration Scroll down the page and you can read clinical research being done specifically for peripheral nerve regeneration and repair.
Unfortunately, because of the complexity of the brain and spinal cord, little spontaneous regeneration, repair or healing occurs. Therefore, brain damage, paralysis from spinal cord injury and peripheral nerve damage are often permanent and incapacitating.
To learn more, you may wish to contact Mayo Clinics Regenerative Medicine free Consult Service. If you call them, you will talk to a live person who will provide more information, research, and advice on seeking stem cell therapy from reputable providers, even if that provider is not Mayo Clinic. Their primary goal is to educate and help you find effective treatment. Furthermore, you can add your name to a database to be notified when additional studies and information become available. Heres more information about the stem cell Consult Service http://www.mayo.edu/research/centers-programs/center-regenerative-medicine/patient-care/clinical-services/regenerative-medicine-consult-service. Or simply call 1-844-276-2003 to speak with one of our experts.
I also feel it important to add it is so important to do your homework and due diligence when researching new treatment options. Stem cells offer a lot of hope. But where these is hope, there is hype and charlatans. FDA acts to remove unproven, potentially harmful treatment used in stem cell centers targeting vulnerable patients https://www.fda.gov/newsevents/newsroom/pressannouncements/ucm573427.htm
