Stem Cell Therapy…are we there yet?!

As pointed out in this post, there is currently minimal scientific evidence to support the use of stem cell therapies for orthopedic conditions. This may to prove to be the future BUT currently we do not have any proof that stem cell therapies are very effective.
Furthermore, these treatments are not covered by insurance and patients are charged thousands of dollars out of pocket.
