Dr. Michael Pasquale is one of Hawaii’s top cosmetic plastic surgeons in Hawaii and the world. His unique combination of education and experience give him special qualifications and insight into cosmetic plastic surgery.
Of special note, Dr. Pasquale is one of the few plastic surgeons in the world who has not only completed a full residency in plastic surgery but has also earned a 2-year training certificate specifically in the subspecialty of cosmetic surgery. He earned this certificate in Manhattan N.Y., at New York University-Downtown Hospital, under some of New York’s leading cosmetic and plastic surgeons. In addition to his training in plastic surgery, Dr. Pasquale is an osteopathic physician and surgeon (D.O.), which means he has had additional training in manual medicine techniques and alternate medicine. This holistic medical education has given him a deeper understanding of medicine and knowledge about newer concepts of health.

The Hawaii Stem Cell Treatment Center is dedicated to ethical and honest approach to emerging stem cell technologies and research. We believe that cellular based medicine is one of the true possible futures to curing diseases which have no known or previous cures.
We also realize that we have a long way to go before we understand how this will be best used and exactly what are the best ways to use this technology. Despite all the hype we see in the news and popular media we are in the infant stage of development. We simply do not know all we wish we did.
Our stem cell research and applications are a perfect marriage with the plastic, reconstructive, cosmetic, wellness and dermatological products & services offered.
That is why none of our physicians and staff will tell you that this is therapy that will cure disease. We simply do not have the scientific evidence at this point in time to make such claims. What we do know is that information so far has led to some pretty remarkable anecdotal evidence.
It appears that the deployment of SVF otherwise known as Stromal Vascular Fraction (contains stem cell and other factors in the liquid derived from fat) is seen as beneficial for a variety of conditions. There have been many thousands of treatments performed across the globe so far and we feel that is very safe, though we are still currently involved in research to further scientifically prove its safety.
Stem cell is presently being studied for Orthopedics, Ophthalmology, Autoimmune disease, Urology, Neurology and Cosmetic Enhancement of appearance.
We do not perform all protocols but in our network of physicians we are presently studying with specific protocols for the following conditions:
• Alopecia Areata • Ankle Problems • Asthma • Auto-Immune Hepatitis • Cardiomyopathy • CIDP • COPD • Crohn’s Disease • Degenerative Spine & Disk Disease • Degenerative & Inflammatory Arthritis • Elbow & Hand Problems • Hip Problems • Interstitial Cystitis • Knee Problems • Lichen Sclerosis • Lupus • Multiple Sclerosis • Muscular Dystrophy • Myasthenia Gravis • Neuropathy • Optic Neuritis • Parkinson’s • Peyronies Disease • Relapsing Polychondritis • Rheumatoid Arthritis • Scleroderma • Shoulder Problems • Stroke Recovery
If you would like further information regarding applying as a candidate for any of the protocols for these conditions contact us by phone

We welcome traveling patients who come to Hawaii to enjoy the paradise and beautiful beaches and weather.
Infinity Life Center and the Hawaii Stem Cell Treatment Center in Honolulu are proud to provide public access to regenerative stem cell-based medicine. The Hawaii Stem Cell Treatment Center currently follows an in-office, outpatient, strict sterile closed surgical procedure to harvest and process fat into differentiated stem cells under local anesthesia. These protocols are set forth by the Cell Surgical Network, an international group of highly qualified and credentialed physicians committed to clinical research for the advancement of regenerative medicine.
Stem cell therapy has clinical applications and the potential to treat several degenerative conditions, diseases, and injuries. Stem cells are currently being used for cosmetic applications as well as to treat orthopedic injuries, heart & lung disease, autoimmune disease, neurologic disease, urological disease, and ophthalmological disease.
Many of these treatments are in their infancy but there is very strong support, data and experience to indicate the efficacy of stem cell therapy in several areas.

Heal Faster, Play Sooner and Eliminate the Feeling of Aging
Regenerative solutions for your aches and pains.
The answer to ending the pain cycle and further degeneration involves regenerating and healing the connective tissue-ligaments, tendons, joint tissue, and cartilage.
The most effective way to heal connective tissues is to use orthobiologics with regenerative injection techniques. Umbilical cord stem cells, placenta matrix growth factors, and platelet-rich plasma are extremely effective at repairing damaged connective tissue and painful joints.
Orthopedic injections offer an effective way to address more difficult cases of tendonitis, ligamentous sprains, joint inflammation, and disc and fascial problems in the limbs and spine. Commonly recommended only when more conservative methods have failed, these injections target specific areas affected by injury or disease to provide relief and improve mobility.
The orthopedic injections available at Portner Orthopedic Clinic help reduce swelling and manage pain so that our physical therapists, massage therapists, and other specialists can work on a progressive orthopedic solution that eliminates your pain source for good. The concentrated dose of targeted medication allows our team to calm the injury site, also known as the pain generator, so that we may attempt noninvasive therapies to permanently help heal the problem and restore full functionality.
Injection remedies can cause a pain flare to subside for several weeks to several months — long enough to see if your issues respond to a combination of nonsurgical approaches. Injections are often done with the aid of needle guidance, either fluoroscopic or ultrasound, to ensure that the placement of the needle is accurate and safe.
We focus exclusively on Stem Cell and regenerative therapies.
Stem cell procedures are done for joint, tendon, muscle, autoimmune, Lung And Brain Conditions. Additional therapies such as platelet-rich plasma, Ozone, acupuncture, and nutritional consultation are also available to aid in recovery.
