Surgeries performed at Northway Medical and Surgical Centre involve a unique medical technology that enables real-time, point-of-care collection of patient’s tissues, and preparation of a mixture of his stem and regenerative cells in Celution 800 System that is administered on patient’s damaged site. These unique surgeries produce a regenerative effect, recover the damaged cartilage, and significantly improve joint condition, reduce joint swelling and release patients from tiresome pain.

This is the first device of its kind in the Baltic States that will enable Northway Medical and Surgical Centre to offer patients the most advanced services in regenerative medicine.
