Stem cells: NO working knowledge; but anytime there are studies regarding treatment publishe​​​d by the owner of a clinic who does the treatment and there are not more studies corroborating the result, one must be cautious and ask for independent evidence of efficacy, not just "safety" of the individual portions of the treatment but the long term​ results of the treatment for your distinct clinical​ scenario
