A couple of months ago it was Farah Khan and Shirish Kunder, who decided to give their kids the best legacy ever by preserving the stem cells from their umbilical cord. Well now, it's Sanjay Dutt and his wife Manyata Dutt, who were recently blessed with twin babies, who have taken the innovative step to preserve their baby's stem umbilical cord stem cells with LifeCell, India's pioneer in stem cells domain.
The couple, who joins many other celebrities in this decision, is said to have done this to stay in connect with the latest trends in healthcare and to provide their children a secure future with a gift of lifetime.
With Sanjay Dutt signing up for this service, LifeCell has expanded its celebrity clientele portfolio with Bollywood actors like Hrithik Roshan, Raveena Tandon, Madhavan and many others having preserved their child's stem cells with LifeCell.
The baby's umbilical cord blood and tissue are a rich biological resource of stem cells, which have the potential to treat over 75 serious ailments through the innovative concept of stem cell therapy. Umbilical cord stem cell banking is a service wherein the baby's umbilical cord blood & cord tissue are collected immediately after birth which is usually discarded after birth. The collected sample is sent to the central laboratory where it is tested, processed and the stem cells from are preserved at -196 degrees centigrade for potential medical use in the future. This is a simple and safe procedure for both mother and the baby.
Rejoicing the moment, actor Sanjay Dutt, said, "We feel truly blessed with our double bundle of joy. When Manyata was pregnant we came to know about stem cell banking and the potential it holds for the future. Many of our friends have also opted for this service and hence we decided to go for it. We were referred that LifeCell are the leaders in this segment and their impressive track record was a perfect choice to trust and bank our babies' stem cells. We strongly recommend this service as the best gift which parents can provide to their children for a secure future".

Hence, we did not think twice on this decision". "As Sanjay said, LifeCell was our only preference since we are convinced on their stability and reliability" added Manyata Dutt.
