Perry’s Surgery Included Experimental Stem Cell Therapy

Seems like a lot to get into a tweet. I’d cut the guy some slack on that…

When Gov. Rick Perry emerged from back surgery on July 1, he tweeted that his “little procedure” — a spinal fusion and nerve decompression designed to treat a recurring injury — had gone “as advertised.”

The possible presidential contender didn’t reveal that he’d undergone an experimental injection of his own stem cells, a therapy that isn’t FDA approved, has mixed evidence of success and can cost upwards of tens of thousands of dollars.

  1. For anyone with back pain, it’s a no brainer. If, you have the money. Many could benefit.
