Stem Cell

The ST 19 March has an article on stem cell and how it can be used to treat knee problem. For the thousand of runners out there with knees problem, this must be the best new ever.

Surgeons in Singapore have found a way to replace cartilage in the knee with cultivated stem cell which can grow and replace cartilage. Right now the process has to be carried out through an operation but the docs are working on just a simple injection!

NUH Sports Medicine dept Keep up the good work!
