What is Regenerative Medicine?

Regenerative medicine is a branch of translational research in tissue engineering and molecular biology which deals with the “process of replacing, engineering or regenerating human cells, tissues or organs to restore or establish normal function”. This field holds the promise of engineering damaged tissues and organs via stimulating the body’s own repair mechanisms to functionally heal previously irreparable tissues or organs. At RMI, the definition of regenerative medicine is broader, recognizing the positive effect that other more holistic lifestyle methods have on restoring health to human cells, including diet, exercise, meditation, and stress reduction.

Cell therapy:

The RMI cell therapy center at Dorada offers a unique opportunity to experience different cell therapies form a renowned group of specialists from around the world. These services are supplied in a world-class medical center and luxury environment, and amidst the healing power of Costa Rica‘s nature and beauty. The goal is to make adult stem cell therapy available now to adults who want to focus on enhancing quality of their health and lives.


Residents will have access to regenerative and personalized health technologies, lab analyses, and lifestyle and diet programs through the on-site Regenerative Medicine Institute (RMI). Directed by Nobel Prize Nominee and renowned age-management physician and surgeon, Dr. Vincent Giampapa, RMI focuses on regenerating the core building blocks of life – cells. Breakthroughs in biochemistry, genetics and basic biology have unlocked many new avenues to approach health and aging.


Your adult stem cells are unspecialized, which means they have the potential to develop into many different cell types. Unspecialized stem cells can replicate and each new cell has the potential to either remain a stem cell or become another type of cell with a specialized function, such as a red blood cell or a brain cell. Because stem cells can repair and replace your body’s damaged cells and tissues, storing them can provide you with access to cutting-edge technologies to combat the effects of aging and treat numerous diseases or injuries in the future.


Currently, there are close to 2,000 clinical trials registered in the United States investigating the potential of adult stem cells to treat a myriad of diseases. Researchers are learning more each day about how the restorative properties of stem cells may help in diabetes, heart and vascular disease, autoimmune diseases, organ regeneration and injured tissues, just to name a few. Aside from disease treatment, pro athletes have been taking advantage of the effects of stem cells for years to treat sports-related injuries to the shoulder, knee and even neck.


Lifestyle, diet, and exercise play a critical role in overall health, but most people need help with implementing a balanced program. RMI customizes a program for each member, including the following components:

  • Personal Health Assessment – a survey that gives you valuable insights into your current health and ways to enhance it.
  • Knowledge Base – Access to a library of articles, news, and videos on health and wellness to improve your health knowledge.
  • Exercise and Workout Plans – Built by a certified personal trainer, to be practiced year round, wherever you are.
  • Meal Plans – Personal nutritional plans based on your lab analysis, so you can plan healthier meals with hundreds of recipes and customizable grocery lists.
  • Progress Measuring Plan – Track your improvements over time in weight, BMI, blood pressure, cholesterol, and more.


RMI members will have access to the most technologically advanced cell-based cosmetic procedures designed and patented by world-renowned surgeon Dr. Vincent Giampapa, available nowhere else. Such procedures include minimally invasive stem cell facial rejuvenation and body rejuvenation.


We all have the ability within ourselves to harness our consciousness to do things for which most people rely solely on medications. These include ability to relieve pain, manage anxiety, cope with illness, increase productivity, improve sleep, sharpen focus, and feel a deeper sense of peace. Through guided meditation and other stress reduction methods, RMI will help you foster these innate abilities. RMI will also make use of auditory technologies wherein electrical brain wave patterns resonate to certain precise frequencies when presented with audio tones of certain frequencies.
