Here is a link to a recent expert consensus statement on these birth tissue products that are being sold to doctors as patients as “stem cell” products. They are not. It is a scam. Over 20 medical doctors, PhDs, and researchers from major USA universities and practices have all signed on to a consensus statement that these products do NOT contain living stem cells.
Don’t get scammed by a clinic selling “umbilical cord blood as a living stem cell”. The clinic in question has been in Plano and Arlington Texas for a long time defrauding patients.
I tell all patients that the easiest thing to remember is that for an orthopedic stem cell procedure to be legal, verifiable, and to have published human clinical outcomes for the condition being treated…..the stem cells HAVE to come from their own bone marrow.
The use of these products in orthobiologics is not illegal. Selling and promoting them as actual stem cell injections would mean that they have been approved by the FDA as a biologic drug…..and none of these products have passed that standard. Patients need to be very sure of what they are paying for with orthobiologic procedures so that they aren’t charged and given a procedure that is not what was advertised!
