The 3 Best Hospitals in Asia for Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cell therapy can be a controversial treatment depending on where you live in the world. In the United States, for example, it’s illegal for doctors to perform stem cell treatments due to political and moral objections. For this reason, patients seeking out stem cell treatment options are travelling to Asia.
There are no moral or political objections to stem cell treatment in Asia, and many hospitals have become leaders in this field. In Asia, the cost of stem cell treatment is affordable, and it has high success rates in treating many diseases without the threat of opposition or prohibition.
