JOINT REPLACEMENTS CAN BE AVOIDED
Removing a persons bone structure, and replacing it with metal parts are no longer efficient. It is a measure of last resort.
As medicine is evolving, we are now finding better ways to treat osteoarthritis, your body can heal it self.
YOUR OWN STEM CELLS CAN REPAIR YOUR JOINTS AND TAKE AWAY YOUR PAIN.
As Australia's population ages we will see age related diseases, such as osteoarthritis put ever increasing strain on the public health system. The need has never been greater to explore novel treatments that can have an immediate impact in reducing this future cost whilst dramatically improving the quality of life for everyday Australians.
Benefits all Australians should see
Currently there are no rebates through medicare nor private health insurance covering stem cell treatment
We have the power to significantly improve peoples quality of life and relieve the burden of
future disability. We just need to raise enough to fund clinical trials, funding clinic trails will
accelerate stem cell research and shorten the waiting time
Government funding primarlily goes to stem cell research in a laboratory, not to clinical research.
This means it will take 10 to 15 years for patients to see the benefits of this research.
