This is Dr. David
stem cell therapy is not proven in Parkinsons
these centers are doing experimental therapy for desperate patients with no proven benefit for profit.
I would save the money and look for clinical trails for parkinsons patients at a university hospital like Univ of Utah Medical Center.
