“Do we know about this?” says Spence. “Stem-cell therapy for members of the nation within?”
“We do not,” says Admin.
“Here’s a story out of Detroit,” Spence says (hat tip – Candice Williams, The Detroit News). “It’s all about Reuben, a 9-year-old English springer spaniel with hip dysplasia and arthritis. He went to a clinic that does in-house stem-cell therapy – harvesting and injecting stem cells the same day. Treatment started with light anesthesia and then the vet took about a tablespoon of fat from Reuben’s back. The fat is lasered, the cells get separated out, and are injected into the joints. The vet expects Reuben to be moving better 2 or 3 weeks. Cost – about two grand.”
They both look at me. “How are those hips, big guy?”
Hips? Those are what, exactly?
Here’s wishing B. a quick recovery.
