The “TBD” Stem Cell Institute is a center for Stem Cell Medical Excellence and the brainchild of some of the most experienced, influential, and forward-thinking minds in medicine. Our medical board is a compilation of Harvard educated doctors, Yale professors including current and former directors of some of the biggest names in medicine such as St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, Harvard’s Brigham Women’s Hospital and the University of Illinois at Chicago, to name a few.

Unlike other international destination stem cell clinics, the “TBD” Stem Cell Institute is truly focused on bringing cutting edge stem cell therapies to the world by working with USA-based FDA clinical trials, top regulators, research boards, pioneering physicians, cutting edge biotech research companies and major universities. Currently, the method of producing the stem cell products being administered by the “TBD” Stem Cell Institute is FDA approved for clinical trials under an IND (Investigational New Drug). We challenge you to find any other clinic in the Americas or world for that matter that can boast such a relationship with the “Gold Standard” of all medicine the US FDA.

Why Panama City, Panama?

  • Panama City is the undisputed travel hub of all the Americas and boasts dozens of non-stop flights from both the USA and Canada of North America and Brazil and Argentina of Latin America. Virtually every other Latin America country has non-stop flights to Panama City. Panama City’s Tocumen International Airport or PTY is also the HUB for most flights into Latin America form Europe and Asia. Panama City’s PTY affords a travel advantage and convenience the no other country south of the United States can compete with.

  • Panama City is a Top 5 International Banking Center of the World. The free flow of funds is essential to any business operation and in the advancement of ground-breaking, life altering stem cell therapies it is essential. This also makes attracting more revenue from current and future investors much more attractive.

  • Panama City is the only country in south of the United States that boasts a John Hopkins Affiliate Hospital. A city that can boast having one of the top rated if not the top rated hospital in the world “hanging its hat” just a couple blocks for our “TBD” Stem Cell Institute is certainly a confidence boast to those leaving their native countries to explore medical options not yet available int their homeland.

  • Panama City is first world modern city 2nd none in the USA, Canada, Brazil, Asia and all of Europe.

  • There too many 5 star luxurious accommodations located in the same building as “TBD” Stem Cell Institute or within blocks of the clinic to mention at very affordable rates.

  • Safety is often a big concern when leaving your hometown for a foreign land. Panama City is safe.  The “TBD” Stem Cell Institute is actually located in the most prestigious area of one of the world’s premier banking and financial destinations. “Love or hate it” when the world’s largest banks call a destination their home it had better be the safest area.

  • There is so much to do from a tourism prospective. Panama is connected to Costa Rica separated only by the Panama Canal. Think of Panama as country that offers virtually everything Costa Rica offers but at fraction of the cost. You can often hire a private tour guide in Panama for less that what you would pay for a group tour in Costa Rica.

  • PTY offers dozens of quick flights to virtually every other Central and South America location. You can often take day trips flying to another country in the morning and flying back that evening. That is even hard to do in the United State from one US city to another and return the same day.

The other advantage to Panama is the favorable regulatory environment. Although, we are affiliated with a company engaged or in the process of FDA clinical trials, forthcoming  FDA Approvals may take years. With that said, we need a Medical Center of Excellence to offer such Stem Cell Treatments that can provide the same if not better standards than currently expected in the United States, Brazil, Canada or Europe. Panama City, Panama is not just the logical choice it may be the only choice.
