Olympus Stem Cells Pty Ltd Now Offers Stem Cells For symptoms of “Empty Nose Syndrome”

Medical clinic and research facility Olympus Stem Cells Pty Ltd, based in Sydney Olympic Park, NSW, Australia, are pleased to announce the provision of medical services relating to the use of Stem Cells for symptoms of “Empty Nose Syndrome”. This disorder was first described by the Mayo Clinic and can develop as a result of sinus surgery, turbinate reduction or septal surgery. The patient describes the symptoms as the inability to breathe through their nose.

This is a painful and distressing condition that is a disorder of the sensory nerves supplying the nose and inner mucosa. The disease process affects the maxillary division of the trigeminal cranial nerves and the use of stem cells is aimed at re-establishing a normal neural pathway. More details can be obtained at

The Medical Director of Olympus Stem Cells, Associate Professor Russell Vickers, has published extensively on the use of stem cells in neuropathic facial pain. He is now conducting clinical treatment of patients with the symptoms of “Empty Nose Syndrome”. The condition may follow nasal surgery and was described by the Mayo Clinic of the USA.

Associate Professor Vickers says: "Stem Cell Therapy is a highly effective means of alleviating pain and discomfort for people suffering a variety of conditions ranging from MS, neuropathic facial pain or Empty Nose Syndrome. We are proud to be one of Sydney's best Stem Cell Therapy providers, with a proven track record of providing safe, effective treatment and expert care for our patients. Olympus has a strong focus on research and development and is working hard to constantly further the advancement of stem cell techniques around the world. Our research has been published internationally in peer-reviewed medical and science journals, plus our laboratory boasts some of the best state-of-the-art biotechnology equipment in Australia."

Stem Cells are extracted from abdominal wall fat following a mini liposuction procedure. The procedure is conducted under local anaesthesia and stem cells are extracted following aspiration of 20-40cc's of fat. The cells and stromal vascular fraction are then injected into the affected nerves in the head and neck. For Empty Nose Syndrome the targeted nerves are the Maxillary division of the Trigeminal nerve.

Olympus Stem Cells Pty Ltd are the only company undertaking this ground breaking treatment in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region. The surgery is day stay only. More information on the clinic and the work that they do can be obtained at
