What Are Stem Cells?
(http://ow.ly/PvrM30mRFA0)

Stem cells are the body's raw materials. They're undifferentiated cells, meaning they can be transformed into bone cells, muscle cells, or blood cells. Because of their unique properties, stem cells are also capable of healing the body and generating new tissue. At South Texas Spinal Clinic, Dr. Gurwitz and his colleagues use a specific type of adult stem cell called mesenchymal stem cells, to assist patients in addressing pain and improving their overall quality of life.
