Stem cells -- they come from our own bodies and can be concentrated and injected into joints, and many other places to help with healing. Dr. Michael Pasquale from the Hawaii Stem Cell Treatment Center joins the show to explain the latest research on this innovative treatment that might just replace the need for surgery someday! 

Dr. Kathy Kozak is the host of The Body Show. Mondays at 6:30 p.m. on HPR-1.
