Osteonecrosis Treatment Without Surgery? This Is a Tough One…

Yesterday, I treated a patient at our licensed Grand Cayman advanced practice site who had at least 11 sites of a dreaded disease known as osteonecrosis.

A Hip AVN Stem Cell Scam

As you might have noticed, I’ve started a new “Stem Cell Botched” series, the goal of which is to educate patients and physicians about the difference between high-quality, regenerative interventional orthopedics and just bad care with stem cells.
