What is a Stem Cell?

Stem cells are those who can replicate themselves or turn into different cell types. The discovery and implementation of stem cells in the medical field has created a lot of hope for different conditions. Among the list of applications, stem cells have been reportedly used to relief specific orthopedic conditions like knee pain and arthritis. Our orthopedic doctor, Leon Mead, has been implementing this treatments for quite sometime now. The graph below is a quick overview of them. However, we will be covering a little bit more on the subject in our orthopedic corner in the upcoming months.
