Scientists in Israel have successfully conducted the first-ever bone regrowth surgery!
The medical team of Bonus BioGroup, an Israel-based biotechnology company, were able to create thousands of tiny living bone particles from the fat cells of a patient’s leg. The medical team was able to harvest and reprogram fat cells to be used to promote bone growth in the same patient’s shinbone. This is an exciting and promising discovery for the field of stem cells science. With additional research on understanding stem cells, there is hope of potentially discovering solutions to help challenging diseases, according to International Business Times. The Orthohealing Center will continue to monitor new stem cell discoveries and innovations that may be relevant to our orthopedic patients.”
