Marco Pulcini’s Stem Cell Journey with Stemwell

After a major crash during a race, Marco Pulcini, Ferrari Challenge Driver, turned to Stemwell for stem cell treatment.

Sustaining multiple knee and shoulder injuries, Marco was looking for a treatment that would help to repair and regenerate these joints. Not only to help with pain relief, but to ensure he could get back to racing as soon as possible. 

“I’ve always been really fascinated by stem cell treatments in general. I’ve heard of others who have gone through stem cell therapy and everyone has given amazing feedback. That is why I came to Colombia to give this a try.”

Marco’s journey to stem cell therapy began at our state-of-the-art clinic in Bogota, where he was greeted by a team of regenerative medicine specialists dedicated to understanding his condition and how best to treat it. A comprehensive medical consultation determined that Marco was a good candidate for stem cell therapy – a cutting-edge treatment that has shown promising results in repairing the tissues damaged in joint injuries

The treatment process

Our team of specialists put together a bespoke treatment plan based on Marco’s medical history and individual goals. 

This included a series of localized injections in the areas of pain, such as the knee and shoulder joints, as well as injections at a muscular level in the trapezius muscle region. The treatment also involved the intravenous (IV) infusion of the stem cells to offer more effective tissue regeneration and reduction of inflammation. 

Firstly, Marco received an hour-long intravenous serum therapy to reduce the inflammatory response within the body. This prepares the body to receive the stem cells and have a better reaction to them. 

The next day was stem cell implantation day, involving the intravenous infusion and localized injections into the specific areas of pain. The stem cells were administered in an operating room with pain relief given by a skilled anesthesiologist, meaning Marco did not feel pain during the process. 

Marco’s treatment was bespoke to his needs and lasted three days in total. During this time, Marco received two serum therapies and two physical therapies. 

After treatment, our team of doctors helped Marco with specific aftercare requirements, advising on several factors to aid his recovery.

Soon after treatment, Marco started to experience the benefits of stem cell therapy. The cells successfully aided the recovery and repair of Marco’s joints, leaving him in a position where a month after treatment, he can get back to training and racing: 

“I don’t have pain in my shoulders and knees anymore. I’ve felt a big difference in my fitness, and my knees and my shoulders feel much stronger. I feel a lot better and ready to take on even more – including taking my racing to a further level. Thank you Stemwell!”

Whilst Marco’s journey is unique to his needs, it is a testament to the potential of stem cell therapy as a treatment for joint injuries and represents the opportunity that stem cell therapy holds for individuals suffering from various conditions.
