Locations Worldwide and Costs and Expenses
Can patients from outside the United States receive therapy?
GIOSTAR Chicago provides regenerative cell therapy to people from all over the world. Our scientific partner GIOSTAR has several medical centers in the following countries:
- South Africa
- West Africa
- United Arab Emirates (UAE)
The GIOSTAR Chicago office is located in the suburbs of Chicago, at 2614 Patriot Blvd, Unit A, Glenview, Illinois 60025.
If you’re coming from outside Chicago for regenerative cell therapy at GIOSTAR Chicago, you are responsible for your own travel expenses. However, as a GIOSTAR Chicago patient, you’re assigned a care coordinator who helps you with logistics to reduce the stress and anxiety related to therapy. Your transplant specialist also provides you with your therapy plan, so you know what to expect before starting therapy, and so you can make the appropriate arrangements well in advance.
Insurance doesn’t cover regenerative cell therapy at GIOSTAR Chicago. However, the team doesn’t want you to forego treatment due to the added expense, and will work with you to develop a payment plan that fits your financial situation.
Not everyone is a candidate for regenerative cell therapy. To determine if you would benefit from the procedure, GIOSTAR Chicago has you go through a three-step process:
- Complimentary consultation to answer all your questions and discuss your needs.
- Completion of a health history form that’s reviewed by a GIOSTAR Chicago specialist.
- If you’re approved as a candidate for regenerative cell therapy, a 25% deposit is required to reserve your treatment date.
During your complimentary consultation, your questions and concerns stay confidential, and are treated with respect and professionalism.
If you’re a good candidate for therapy, you may be able to begin your regenerative cell therapy within two weeks of your initial consultation.
Call GIOSTAR Chicago at 844-446-7827, or use online booking to schedule your complimentary consultation and determine if you’re a good candidate for regenerative cell therapy.
