Anyone tried RegenaDISC: Spinal Disc Regeneration?

From: Todd_W - on 02/22/2011 12:44am

Has anyone tried or heard any positive outcomes from stem cell therapy such as the RegenaDISC process? I have severe DDD and trying to do everything I can to avoid a fusion. Stem cell therapy seems to make sence but appears to be in it's infancy.

Do you find this discussion helpful?

I have similar issues from the C-3 to the S1 and am in the same position. I started thinking like you about a year ago and did some research. They are doing it on mice as I type, however, no human trials yet. It is at the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine @http://www.wfubmc.edu/wfirm/ You should contact them, I did, and I got on a list of interested patients, probably/hopefully for human clinical trials when they come about. All the best to you, and avoid surgery for as long as possible. I am waiting until I can't swallow food and/or hold my waste....horrible thoughts but possible.
Peace, Love and Healing.
