Does anyone have any experience good, or bad about this company and/or treatment?

I am not a medical person. I am skeptical.

What, stem cells or the medical facility? They said they get 80% of their business from TV.

I am skeptical about treatments not covered by insurance.

Is it covered by your insurance?

Thanks for responding. No, it's not covered by insurance.

It depends on who’s giving you the figures. For me it’s way to early with very little results. In 10 years maybe. Ortho was my field for 46 years, stem was not used in our practice

With NO FDA approval, NO insurance or Medicare coverage for this type of treatment, I would never (IMHO) consider this. There are a few (very few) and very specific stem cell treatments, knees are not one of them.
