From its medical services to its accommodations, Galenia is a perfect venue for the point of care therapies provided by ISCI."
In order to better serve the medical needs of its patients, the ISCI has appointed several physicians within Galenia to serve as faculty for the ISCI. The faculty provides the tremendous breadth of interdisciplinary experience and expertise that defines the ISCI. From neurologists to orthopedists, the faculty of the ISCI at Hospital Galenia provides the patient evaluation and medical oversight that is the hallmark of the ISCI's integrative approach.

Our approach is both interdisciplinary and integrative, and based on patient care and safety."
With the combination of the proprietary protocols, Hospital Galenia facilities and its renowned faculty, the ISCI is in a unique position to advance the field of regenerative medicine with transparency, oversight and attention to safety.
