Client: Helen Piska
Hello, I’m Adrian Piska and this is my wife. Helen. Helen Piska. I’m 52 years old and I came to Swiss Medica after a long thought about it as my situation wasn’t getting any better with the doctors in the UK, so we chose to come to Swiss Medica in Moscow.
There’s a lot more detail behind that, just to sneak in there, that I’m an age of 66 years old. The background to this is that Helen became ill in 2013. , with a mystery complaint that the National Health Service struggled to resolve. It took some months before it was identified probably as neurological disorder called cerebral vasculitis. The treatment was merely to contain the situation as it was, which left Helen with a very difficult disability with asymmetric paralysis of her left side. Out of that came a difficult struggle for Helen in terms of domestic life, mobility and all sorts of leisure activities. We’ve pursued with the health authorities in the UK, resolutions and opportunities for cures and we are way down the list of priorities within the UK. It is simple as that. As a consequence of that, Helen decided that she was not going to wait until she was 70 years old, before the health authorities have done all of the relevant trials on stem cell treatment. She decided she would investigate it herself and go where the best opportunities are present within our reach. Over to you.
We looked at various places in America, but came back to Swiss Medica. After contacting them months before, we thought maybe no, this is a scam and we let it rest for a while. But we’ve gone back for the second time and we were more agreeable that this wasn’t a scam, this was actually a true place of forward thinking medicine.
OK, so Helen hasn’t told you everything, that she has done an enormous amount of research online and through documentation to understand the principals and practices relating to stem cell treatments and therapies. My computer is full of all the papers that she’s gleaned from Japan, from China, from America, from Russia, from Europe and from the UK. I have been invited to distill some of that in my quest to determine truth from fiction and also then to decide, with Helen, where best to go.
We looked at Swiss Medica quite early in the cycle and I was dubious regarding their credentials. The marketing they presented at the time was predominantly American based and I was uncomfortable with that. Also, the telephone arrangements Swiss Medica had put in place gave us slight deception to the reality, in such that calls made from the UK are invited to go to Switzerland, but actually end up being answered in Moscow. So that led me to think “Is this real or is it a scam?” Being the kind of person I am, I drowned into the entire structure of background of Swiss Medica 21st century and established its pedigree from America, the fact that the American marketing company have been invited to help them, the fact that they had an administrative office on the Swiss/Italian borders and they had headquarters in Switzerland to the south-east of Zurich. I also went online, into the Swiss online system to indentify the directors of Swiss Medica, which wasn’t as difficult as one might think. And I was also minded to note that being a Swiss company they had to have a Swiss national on the board. So, from the financial perspective, I was beginning to become a little more comfortable with Swiss Medica pedigree in business terms.
We started off to have treatment in the Swiss branch, but for reasons that we’re not too clear about, that treatment was cancelled. We then engaged again with Swiss Medica, having asked for a refund, of the down payment, they said, well, come to Moscow. And through the wisdom and guidance of the staff, we became far more confident that these people were not a scam, but they were in fact genuine medical people with significant capabilities.
Helen’s already mentioned that we looked at America and so we were now comparing constraints between continents and between languages and for us it was Swiss Medica, because they’re closer to the UK, which meant less difficulty for Helen in flying. But also because the American market was pushing us towards a very quick, sharp solution, based on people who knew only about stem cell therapies. They knew very little about the broader medical implications and constraints that are associated with these issues.
With all that in mind, we agreed a contract with Swiss Medica, but I’ve made it quite clear that I was not going to pay any money over the counter, until I arrived on sight. And they agreed, which is another point in Swiss Medica’s favor. They are not pushy, they are agreeable to flexible arrangements.
We arrived in Moscow, as per our own plan and we actually, well Helen is actually undergoing treatment and it has demonstrated success even in the very first few days. We’re now hoping for even greater improvement in Helen’s condition, in the weeks and months going forward. Over to you.
I must say though that the treatment was actually very good. In that, I am the most squeamish person there is and reaching out the bone marrow wasn’t a problem. The sucking of the cells from the stomach wasn’t a problem and the doctor who carried this procedure out was just brilliant. So if anybody is frightened of going ahead with it, on that basis, don’t be, just don’t be afraid.
There we go. Does that help?
OK, great. And can you tell the results? How was it before and how is it now? For example your hand, power in your muscles, you told us that you can’t get up, lift your arms… What were the changes that you noticed, since having the stem cell treatment?
Yes, I notice now that I can stand up relatively easier than before. Before it was a struggle to stand up and getup right and now it’s a lot, lot easier to manage that and I can wave my hand a little bit and yes, things are looking good.
I’m going to add a bit here. Helen has played piano until 4 years ago and this week she was able after 3 days, 4 days to rise her left arm upwards and wiggle all the fingers and play a tune on the piano for the staff at Swiss Medica.
Thank you for that. Thank you.
Thank you. And if there is a person, for example a patient, with a condition very similar to Helen’s, can you give some advice to this patient? Would you recommend Swiss Medica 21st century for coming here and having a treatment? What can you say to this person, who is hesitating at the moment?
I am the most cynical, untrusting person in the world when it comes to doing business with anybody that I can’t see and where I can’t touch their physical infrastructure. I have overcome that on behalf of hopefully a lot of people by being here. I am open to enquiries maybe, depending how intense they are, because it is unnerving, especially when you’re dealing with sizable sums of money, with people you don’t know, who are from another country and who quite often speak another language. And in that context, most of the doctors and nurses in Swiss Medica speak fluent English and if not, they are helped by another number of agents who can support them. So don’t be afraid of coming. The complications in getting here are not that difficult, to come to Moscow and Swiss Medica, in my book, is trusted organization.

We were very satisfied from the first day we arrived, they picked us up at the airport, everyone was very polite, as soon as we arrived, everyone was kind, they took us in, showed us our room, which is more than a clinic, it looks like a five start hotel, it is very pretty, it is very nice for us everyone treated us well, and my mum had treatments which, I think, helped her a lot.continue
