We're considering placenta stem cell injection for my Mother in her knees to ease the pain of osteoarthritis. Has anyone tried this?
In order to keep my mom at home, we need her to stand with assistance to change her, etc. She is in a wheelchair. We know the stem cell injection won't enable her to walk again, but the doctor suggested it might help with the arthritis pain when she has to stand with assistance for a very brief time. The injection is very expensive and not covered by insurance, so we are not sure if this is a good decision. Also, are there safety concerns? Any advice is appreciated.
