This is an interesting interview about the use of stem cells and how this man came about his treatment. His wife has a friend who was a veterinarian that was using stem cells to help dogs, so we went on the web and found a treatment facility outside of the US. His recovery time is sooner than most and the therapy is not for everyone, but he was facing both knee and hip surgeries and didn’t need the surgery after all. If the procedure is in fact a potential cure, I would guess that the surgery could still be done later. At any rate this is yet one more case for exploring stem cells. BD
