    20 yrs post quad, getting adult stem cells in Florida

    Caleb Bartlett is a C5-6 quad who is awesome, and he's trying to raise funds to get intravenous delivery of adult stem cells (taken from the bone marrow) by Dr. Zannos Grekos, a doctor doiwho’s been treating everything from heart disease and dementia to Parkinson’s and spinal cord injuries using his method down in Florida.

    Anwhos, it'll be really interesting to see what kind of return is seen on someone so many years post-injury. Has anyone heard about this treatment?

    Caleb has a blog that'll be following his journey getting this procedure done. You can visit it here: http://calebsstemcell.blogspot.com/

    And if you're interested, here's a vodeo of him interviewing Dr. Grekos. It's a pretty thorough/longer interview if you have 15 minutes. Link - http://www.spinalpedia.com//videodetails.php?vid=104294

    The doctor has to buy himself a new chair. This thing sounds like it collapses soon

    Caleb is the dumbass. The doctor is no dummy, he's an a-hole though... a charlatan. The treatment hasn't a snowball's chance in hell of working. Not to mention the treatment may be dangerous. The doctor is also losing his license.

    I'd be really weary of putting $$$ into this unproven technique... What about complications? Will this effect a future procedure that has more evidence behind it? Yikes...

    People should not be paying money for unproven treatments. The only way to definitively prove that a treatment works is to test it in a clinical trial. This "therapy" will never be tested in a clinical trial because it most likely (99.999%) doesn't work.
