Yeah, it's epic sketch out there. Unlike most uber-sketch stem cell clinics, there are maybe a few legit clinics out there, mostly using autologous MSCs. I was (uncharacteristically) impressed by Dr. Chris Centano's Regenexx clinic in Broomfield, Colorado. The therapy is definitively safe, fairly low-cost (~$8K), and actually seems to work (sans typical grandiose claims). 

Chris is an intelligent, rational guy, who founded the physician's oversight group, The American Stem Cell Therapy Association (ASCTA), now called the International Cellular Medicine Group (which h+ Magazine did an article about), which focuses on ranking the legitimacy of stem cell clinics, and keeping adult stem cells safe from costly and corrupt FDA regulation (following the same methodology that the doctors used to keep IVF out of FDA hands). 

There are some good papers out there, if anyone cares to read them, such as:

If anyone has any thoughts on other stem cell clinics, papers, or procedures, I'd love to hear!
