Stem Cell Treatment

The use of Stem Cells being used to help overcome and 'cure' bulging disks is being tested more and more often now and there seems to be a lot of hype around this form of treatment, a lot of people who have had this treatment swear that this has cured them yet we still seem to be years away from this treatment being used regularly.
I find it odd that a lot of people say that we are far away from this being a regular form of treatment as we don't know what the long term implications of this treatment are yet surgeons are happy to perform back surgery which prove doesn't work and even has its own term for when it fails unlike any other form of surgery.
Does anyone believe that one day this will be used as a treatment as the early days of this treatment being used seem to be very promising?
