I thought I had found the perfect treatment when I browsed the internet and came across a website that offered treatment options for those with eye impairments. They offer stem cell treatments using your own adult stem cells. I thought it looked legit when I checked the company out and contacted their patient representative. But they pray on those with disabilities and give false hopes to those who are just looking for some improvement.
I have had optic nerve atrophy since I was a boy and it impaires my vision to the point I am legally blind to this day. My vision is stable but very limited so I thought they could help and they said they would try to help. They have 2 clinics in Germany, one in Dusseldorf (where I went-they send all their eye patients there) and one in Cologne. I didn't want to believe this was a scam because of all the news I have been hearing about involving stem cell treatments. My opthomologist even suggested I should give it a try since there is nothing to lose. But boy did I ever lose money so quickly and in such a rush as I did at this center.
When I gathered enough money I went to Germany and the clinic then said that there was no guarantee when I got there and that adult stem cells may cause brain tumors before I started the treatment. Of course they don't tell you this until right before you do the surgery to save their butts. I decided to do it anyways because the doctor convinced me nothing would happen (thank god it didn't). Then the service I got there was horrible from what I was told with staff not speaking any English as I was told they would and mismanagement all around. I don't want to go into greater details of the horrible clinic they have and the miscomunication among staff there.
But after all that was said and done I got my treatment and low and behold I see bright colors and everyone at the center thought it was a miracle and said it was a success. But then a week later things didn't seem as bright and I started to get headaches again and my vision has turned out to be the same as even before I did the surgery. I threatened to sue but only got pennies on the dollar of what I actually spent and they have a really tough lawyer who they pay quite well since they are scamming so many to believe they are actually getting cured. Don't trust this clinic, wait until stem cells are perfected before you throw away thousands of dollars on a surgery that has no benefits. DON'T TRUST THEM, THEY WILL SCAM YOU!!!
