Regenerative Medicine Consult Service

The Regenerative Medicine Consult Service at Mayo Clinic provides educational guidance and appropriate referrals to research studies and clinical trials in stem cell therapies. Indications for a regenerative medicine consult include (but are not limited to) degenerative and congenital diseases of the heart, liver, pancreas and lungs in which the patient or clinician has questions about the value of stem cell-based therapies.

Patients and health care providers are informed of existing regenerative services at Mayo Clinic. When appropriate, patients are referred to research studies at Mayo Clinic and elsewhere that are actively recruiting participants. In other instances, a subspecialty referral can be made.

Timothy J. Nelson, M.D., Ph.D., a physician-scientist at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., whose research focuses on regenerative medicine, oversees the service.
