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 and other regenerative products.

Indications for a regenerative medicine consult include (but are not limited to) disorders of the heart, liver, pancreas and lungs; systemic diseases; and injuries. Any patient or clinician who has questions about the value of regenerative therapies is welcome to call the consult service.

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 may be made.

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