Adult Stem Cells, Regenerative Medicine and the Facts Behind Peyton Manning's Treatment - Episode #24, Segment #4
Two of the nation's leading experts on the topic of adult stem cells are the guests on this segment of Business Unconventional. They are Dr. Ben Guiot, a neurosurgeon affiliated with Littleton Adventist Hospital and South Denver Neurosurgery; and James Poser, PhD, chief scientific officer of Celling Biosciences, based in Austin, Texas.
Adult stem cells were central to the treatment and recovery of Peyton Manning, the SuperBowl-winning NFL quarterback who was recently signed by the Denver Broncos. Drs. Guiot and Poser discuss the advances that are allowing many patients to benefit from similar medical technologies.
