At Stemvita stem cell treatment clinic, we feel it it’s important to be transparent and that includes having these disclaimers, which are here to help protect you against misunderstandings. It’s why it’s good practice to have a consent form, for instance.
Stemvita stem cell treatments
Stem cell treatments are being developed in an evolutionary and revolutionary manner. Things have changed a lot in the 20 years since they were first attempted and will change again quickly. The treatments we give have some evidence base to them and do work in some patients. But no medical treatment can be guaranteed to work in all patients and there is always an element of risk – of it not working or of some form of side effect or something completely unforseen.
In effect, you are asking us to perform stem cell treatments to the reasonable best of current knowledge and abilities, in a professional manner, in appropriate premises and equipment. That is what patients pay the clinic to do, rather than a guaranteed result.

Stemvita Clinic Ltd understands that your personal data is entrusted to us and appreciate the importance of protecting and respecting your privacy. To this end we comply fully with the data protection law in force in the UK.
