This article is part two of my interview with Matthew Feshbach, CEO and Co-Founder of Okyanos (pronounced “Oh – key – AH – nos”). Founded in 2011, Okyanos specializes in treating patients with chronic, degenerative conditions. Located in Freeport, Grand Bahama, just 55 miles from the United States, Okyanos Cell Therapy combines a blend of stem and regenerative cells derived from a patient’s own adipose (fat) tissue.
Treatment is performed in their state-of-the-art surgical center by a team of U.S. licensed medical doctors. Okyanos is also fully licensed under the Bahamas Stem Cell Therapy and Research Act and adheres to U.S. surgical center standards.
Using technology from Cytori Therapeutics, the company offers a highly characterized cellular product that is administered via a robust protocol by a renowned medical team within a world-class facility. It is my opinion, that Okyanos is a company that is setting the standard for others practicing cellular therapy with adipose-derived stem and regenerative cells.
