Stem cell treatment for DDD

my husband has had 2 back surgeries for herniated disc. L5-s1 disc is degenerating.  What are your thoughts on the stem cell treatments for DDD and what are some recommendation for best places to go. Thank you



  • What were the surgeries he had?

  • Nerve root decompression and lamenectomy I believe

  • advertisement
  • Don't believe many members here had it done but best to search here. Most aren't covered by insurance and little feedback to go on. 

  • I’m definitely not a doctor but those don’t seem to be the surgeries designed for that type of problem. I’m currently in the process of seeing if I’m a candidate for dics replament for ddd in 2 discs. I hope he finds relief but the little info ive found on stem cell it is that it appears to be in its infancy.
