Thread: Anyone ever heard of Dr. Himanshu Bansal or Dr. Alok Sharma stem cell treatment?

  1. #1

    Anyone ever heard of Dr. Himanshu Bansal or Dr. Alok Sharma stem cell treatment?

    Has anyone ever heard of Dr. Himanshu Bansal (New Delhi) or Dr. Alok Sharma (Mumbai)? I am interested in getting a stem cell treatment from one of both of these doctors but it seems like Dr. Alok Sharma (Mumbai) is not getting good results and nobody is talking about Dr. Himanshu Bansal (Delhi). Is there anyone who has had any experience with any of these two doctors?

    I have been to Dr Alok , but I did not get any return, tho some people say that they improved.

    It would be a waste of money if you are SCI

    I read about your adventure with the Dr. Alok Sharma treatment lakboy
    i admire your post is saying that it is a waste of time and money. i do believe you had what i deem to be a placebo effect when you posted.
    I can only say one thing any practitioner who sells unproven therapy is highly unprofessional and in breach of medical ethics and in most times worse than that too.
    i wish Dr Wise would reframe form keeping the likes of Dr Xiaw and Dr. Alok Sharma as medical friends. By selling unproven therapy they profiting by putting patients health at risk and in it for the money not for the cure.

    Thank You, Peterf , but what placebo effect are you talking about ? I have always maintained that I did not get any functional return !

    This is what you posted when CC members asked you about your treatment progress

    hello guys, ok now for starters, i got my bone marrow stem cell transplant on the 26th of january. yesterday I walked for the first time on my knees for about five steps. My spasticity is also down by about 20% . My neuropathic pain is also less. Just for the record I am on 600 mg of Lithium a day. Will post more as I improve more. Please go thru my info page and all of you will know my level of injury and my ASIA status.

    Sorry i take it that you were referring to cell treatment progress as asked and as you stated. i admire you for coming forth
    other hand That Amanda Boxtel admits she's a paid professional speaker, so sad for desperate SCI people.

    I can only say "no" twice to the question asked by the thread. I have the feeling that if they really had something to offer, the world would know about it.

    I'm a middle class citizen, married, and a daughter who suddenly lost her hearing at 2 years. I did research on stem cells and found Dr B as he 95% cured a USA citizen of blindness. I called him, and he was great, caring, convincing and to the point said his institute was non-profit and said to me money is not the issue. After meeting him, i decided to trust a fellow Indian, as i am indian. He mentioned 5 treatments to me at a cost of $5000, but he said money is not the issue, lets cure your child.


    My father booked my flights and hotel and we had to remortgage our house and borrow money. When we arrived at kalra hospital. He was nice and genuine, made us sign a disclaimer - which is probably normal for a procedure like this. When the procedure started, they used no anaesthetic, so placed needles into my daughters hands and did not plan it properly as when the cells were placed back, they removed the needle, and then came back and said, we forgot the VESL cells. So put my daughter through pain again. At the End he asked for $7000. I said to him, you mentioned $5000, he said, new patients are added to the system and lab entry costs. I didn't have $7000 so my dad had to borrow money from a company in India to ChAPS to Bansal and i paid them back. At this point we went back to UK. I called Bansal and said i was not convinced and do not want to do the remaining 4, as the procedure was very unprofessional, dirty etc. Plus Surjeet kept on asking for tips and money for medicine, even though we paid for it. And we had a Calvin Collier and another patient contact me dying they left Bansal as he charged people $10,000 and $1500. No consistency.


    Bansal said he will do the next 2 procedures for $5000 total and he will cure my child as her cells were great. After he convinced us, we borrowed more and did the 2 treatments. Same issues again, and surjeet the same. I said i cannot afford another 2 and will come back in 6 months after raised more money. He again convinced he to come within 4 weeks as hitting the disease quicker would gain results. I told him i do not have money. This is where i think he took advantage of venerable people like me who are shaken. He told me to borrow the money again tom friends and family. He said he will gain results as he will come to UK later in year to give boosters where she will gain results. He even said every person that year who have had boosters have had positive results. The boosters are included in the price and he will come uk. I have this on email. So we went again on presumption $5000 for 2 more shots.


    Again, same procedure and pain. At the end Bansal asked for $10000. I said i only have $5000. He said that is not good as the group will take from his wage. He told me to get what i can now. So i went running around in Delhi, asking hotels for money etc. Eventually got another $2000 which i gave him and said i will give the $3000 when i earn it back. He said ok. As we were leaving Surjeet took us for 800 rupees for no reason - tips , leaving charge, bed charge etc. I tried calling bans but he never answered. l just paid and left.


    A month later, i checked my daughters back. There was over 40 needle marks. I was horrified but was thinking she will get boosters and be cured. He said he will come after 6 months as he wants to see if any results are gained. 9 months later or so, he never once emailed me or contacted to see how my child was. Only a email saying he's having trouble cashing the travellers cheques and that he needs a letter. The he says he's coming to uk and will give boosters. At this point i was low as the results were negative and unsure about boosters. He said he will cure her and boosters will work. I have this on email aswell.


    I waited for several months and no contact from him. At this point my daughter was in research program at the best hospital in UK. the professors there questioned why my child has 40 plus marks on her back. I explained everything. They were massively concerned as they said the procedure would not take over 40 needle insurgeons to do 5 shots. They said the Doctor probably wants the cells for his own use as they can be used elsewhere. we were horrified. Then they asked for the boosters and where are they. I said they are in a Lab in India which is a direct match to my child. They asked me to contact Bansal to get the boosters so they can check this and to see if it is placebos or actually matching cells- mother cells.


    At this point i contacted Bansal, saying his method has not worked and that i want boosters, and explained why i want them. He said no, he cannot give unless my child comes to India and has it done there. I said i want my money back then - or partial as i have paid for boosters which he promised to come UK and do. I told him he said he will cure my child, again he denies it all. One thing i will say, he did say to me 40-60% success, which i understood. But then, don't say to me he will cure my child to gain more funds and say all patients who have had boosters have had success. He denies all and i said i have evidence. Then he said he tried to console me. Cutting the long story short........... I told him i want my boosters (as to see if he is genuine or not). He will not give. And now i want partial refund. He's not willing to give. At this point i have done my research on previous patients. I have 9 previous patients who have exactly the same problem as i do. They all mislead and over charged. Promises were given, but no results. Surjeet earning his on the side. 9 cases in 2 days. Latest is Connor. A TODDLER for eye problems. He spent $15000 after 3 treatments, left banal and went to Unistem as Bansal was interest in money and nothing else. Another USA person left bansal and went to Unistem and has gained a positive result. Theres the lady from Paris who spent $10000 per shot, then flew Bansal over to Paris to get boosters, ended up in no results. Theres calvin collier, theres james, rachel, bernies brother.... the list is getting more and more. Bernies brother and rachel had the same problem, exactly. However, Bernie was from China and Rachel from South america. Rachel paid for 5 shots around $15000, Bernie pais $10000 per shot. Where is the sense there. I have all this info as i have met 3 of them in India and through forums, and others through them. All say the same. Bansal is a fraud.


    Ok, we may be upset with no results, but I'm not angry that no results were gained. Im angry as i now believe, Bansal did not do what he said he would. Even to this date, i want my boosters, but he will not give unless i apologise and come to India. Im not apologising. I said to him, mu father lives in India and he can collect the cells. He never replied, because he won't allow it. he has something to hide.


    He has really upset me. With the information i have now, i am making my finding aware to people who are thinking of going to see him. I will put all my findings on forums and internet sites. My father said he will investigate in India if he has gone against procedures etc, and if we can have his licence revoked. I told Bansal, i will close this argument if you give the boosters. He said he will not.

    This story is sad but it's perhaps even sadder that a story like this doesn't even provoke the smallest bit of Surprise from me as stories like this are all too abundant


    I don't know anyway to say this without sounding like an insensitive ass but "you got duped by a stemcell scam? Thats not a Shock to me"

    Again I say that not to sound cold-hearted but as a testament about how these scams are now so commonplace.

    I would NOT engage this "Doctor". The story is repeated by too many seeking something that this is not.

    STAY AWAY FROM HIM
