Stem Cell Clinics Pitch Pricey, Bogus ‘Cures’ for Knee Pain
March 8, 2018
(U.S. News & World Report) – Stem cell clinics are charging big money for knee arthritis “cures” and making extravagant claims about their therapies, a new study contends. A same-day injection for one knee costs thousands of dollars at these centers, according to a consumer survey taken of clinics across the United States. People are paying that kind of cash because two-thirds of stem cell clinics promise that their treatments work 80 to 100 percent of the time, researchers report.
