  1. I had a stem cell procedure 6 months ago and feel it has stablized my right knee situation. I have been a runner all my life but have been restricted to my other passion road biking. My hope is that one day I’ll return to running as well as. The potential is there and it’s just the matter of time. Great review –

    • Gary, thanks for sharing your experiences! It will be interesting to see how people fare as more patients undergo these procedures.
