Stem Cell Therapy Questions

What is stem cell therapy?

When a doctor places a new stem cell into a damaged tissue in order to try and treat a disease or injury, then this is generally known as stem cell therapy. In some situations, researchers believe that stem cell therapy may change how disease and injures are treated. Certain amounts of stem cell therapies may not be approved or the treatments are expensive or in the experimental stages. Bone marrow transplants are the only stem cell treatments that are an exception to this rule. When an individual is in need of stem cell treatments or the individual is looking into what stem cell treatments may be available for them, then the individual may have many questions regarding what stem cell treatments can be used for, if a stem cell treatment may help or even if a stem cell treatment is what is needed.
