Ethical Stem Cell Treatments in Mexico

StemLife Clinic uses human, screened, live mesenchymal stem cells for medical purposes. In terms of quality and treatment outcome, these cellular therapies exceed similar therapies available in the U.S.A.

In a clinical study involving donated umbilical cords obtained under FDA and AATB standards, mesenchymal stem cells were determined to be safe and effective, yet politics prevent these beneficial therapies from being routinely used in North American clinics. By contrast, our private sector clinic in Mexico is able to provide over 300 million cord-derived mesenchymal stem cells that can differentiate into any cell needed in the body with a 94% rate of viability! Our advanced procedures are based on world-class cryopreservation techniques and gene therapy technology that yield 10x the results and cost 40% less for patients.

Developed countries in Europe, Asia, and Oceania have implemented policies adopting the use of these international standards, but you won’t find this quality and quantity of pluripotent mesenchymal stem cells anywhere else but at our beautiful clinic in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico.

Medical Conditions Treatable With Stem Cells

Unlike unqualified providers who have given the industry a bad name, at StemLife Clinic we do not simply inject stem cells into patients and pray for a miracle. Our oath-bound social responsibility is based on ethical values, excellence, and honesty. We will never administer a treatment that is not required or that will damage a patient’s health. All stem cell treatments at StemLife Clinic are personalized to include comprehensive care, extensive blood tests, MRIs, ultrasounds, x-rays, and doctor consultations as needed. We also offer auxiliary services like physiotherapy, intravenous vitamin infusions, recreational activities, and spa treatments.

What to expect at our clinic

The caliber of regenerative treatments with mesenchymal stem cells developed by StemLife Clinic is not available in the USA because profit-seeking has stifled the medical and insurance industry.

Thankfully, our panel of doctors and network of clinical labs and researchers have worked with the brightest minds in the world to offer superior stem cell quality without compromising our commitment to helping people improve the quality of their life. Our medical specialists have the credentials and experience to back up our work and give patients the highest standard of care.

StemLife Clinic uses certified mesenchymal cells ethically obtained from donated umbilical cord and placenta tissues of live, screened, healthy patients in their 1st trimester. Our cryopreservation laboratory extracts and expands these cell samples for medical treatments. At the time of transplanting, these ultra-powerful cells have 94% viability to differentiate into all types of cells needed to heal and regenerate the body.

Frequently Asked Questions
About Stem Cell Therapy in Mexico

Browse some of the main questions we get. Send us any additional questions to answer during your initial consultation held virtually or in-person.

Stem Cell Therapy, umbilical cord anatomy illustration

Wharton's Jelly is a mucous tissue in the umbilical cord that is full of mesenchymal stem cells, growth factors, cytokines, hyaluronic acid, exosomes and other extracellular matrix components.

Researchers have confirmed that this gelatinous substance contains primitive pluripotent mesenchymal stem cells and yields the highest concentration of MSC per milliliter of other allogenic tissues [source].

Stem cells derived from Wharton's Jelly can be transplanted into humans and become any type of cell to repair and regenerate the body!


The human umbilical cord has been discarded after birth for senturies. Modern scientific advances now enable us to harness the unused tissues in the umbilical cord to reproduce and harvest stem cells to regenerate organs, rejuvenate cells, and treat diseases.


The umbilical cord vein transports oxygenated blood and nutrients to the developing baby.


The arteries of the umbilical cord return de-oxygenated blood to the placenta.

Where do mesenchymal stem cells come from?

At our stem cell therapy clinic in Mexico, mesenchymal stem cells are extracted from healthy post-birth umbilical cord tissue called Wharton’s Jelly and placenta tissue.

After extraction, these pluripotent cells undergo a rigorous laboratory testing and cultivation process to harvest billions of stem cells viable for use in regenerative medicine. Our lab and application centers abide by the highest international standards enforced by COFEPRIS and ISO class 5 and 6.

It’s amazing that for centuries, these valuable tissues teeming with the potential for life were usually discarded after birth. But thanks to advances in medicine, our mesenchymal stem cells can develop into virtually any type of cell in the body: neuron, nerve tissue, cartilage, bone, heart cell, liver cell, kidney cell, blood cell, and more.


How much does stem cell therapy cost in Mexico?

Stem cell therapy in Mexico costs between $4000 USD to $25,000 USD depending on the condition being treated. You can get 10x the results and save up to 40% in total out-of-pocket costs compared to an equivalent stem cell treatment in the USA.

At StemLife Clinic, our all-inclusive stem cell treatment protocols can include doses of up to 300 million mesenchymal stem cells (way more than what you can get in the USA), doctor consultation fees, lab work, auxiliary medical treatments,  daily transportation, personalized prepared meals, and more!  

Even including plane tickets, lodging, and other expenses, our stem cell therapy protocol is more accessible than what you would have to pay for equivalent treatments with stem cells in the USA or Canada. So it’s worth it to get a vacation in Mexico while you receive treatments.

Every year, over 1 million tourists mainly from North America, Europe, and Asia undergo quality medical treatments that would cost twice or up to 5 times as much in their home countries. 

What type of stem cells do we use at our clinic?

At our stem cell clinic in Mexico, we use ethically-sourced human pluripotent mesenchymal stem cells derived from donated umbilical cord tissue and placentas of screened patients.

These types of stem cells are called pluripotent because they are the most powerful and versatile cells that can become any type of cell in the body: brain, heart, liver, bone, skin, muscle–whatever type of cell your body needs. And these are 100% ethically-sourced, never endangering babies or their mothers. 

Your doctor will review your lab work and current health condition to determine the best application technique and the right quantity of stem cells for your condition.

Is it safe to get stem cell therapy in Mexico?

It can be. Just as you wouldn’t let just any provider perform surgery on you, you should endeavor to find a qualified doctor preferably away from places where there is a high crime rate (like border towns). Every year, millions from all over the globe travel to Mexico for dental surgery, plastic surgery, and many other specialized medical procedures for a fraction of the cost.

At StemLife Clinic, our doctors and clinical team are committed to practicing safe medicine that is regulated by COFEPRIS, Mexico’s equivalent to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Our beautiful clinic is located in Guadalajara, Jalisco, one of the safest and most prestigious and affluent cities of Mexico.

Since Guadalajara isn’t near the US border which is known for cartel violence, our clinic is safer than Tijuana and northern Baja California. 

Is StemLife Clinic's stem cell therapy superior to the USA?

Thanks to the quality and quantity of cells transplanted, yes, our mesenchymal stem cell therapy is superior to therapies available in North America, hence why patients are traveling to Mexico to receive treatment.

  1. Quality of stem cells: our clinic and partners use international-caliber cellular expansion and cryopreservation techniques that yield mesenchymal stem cells that are about 10x more potent than others in North America. These procedures and our supplementary therapies ensure the stem cells from our clinic have a 94% viability rate for differentiation at the time our patients receive the cellular transplants.
  2. Quantity of stem cells: Thanks to these advanced procedures, you can receive up to 300 million mesenchymal stem cells in a single dose at our clinic! Which is 6x more than clinics in North America and other countries that can only provide upwards of 40 million stem cells. Because they have not yet adopted these international standards, those cells are typically of low viability rate, are from controversial sources, and are permitted in only a few cases.

In fact, beyond the Americas, there are many other countries in Europe, Asia, and Oceania that use these superior techniques for stem cell therapy. Our stem cell clinic in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico is more accessible for travel, price, and quality.
