Cardiologist’s License Restricted for Controversial Stem Cell Therapy
Posted on Monday, March 14th, 2011
A Florida cardiologist recently had his medical license suspended because members of the Board of Medicine wanted to prevent him from performing stem cell transplants that have not been approved and have not been shown to work in the treatment of diseases.
The cardiologist began holding educational seminars to teach people about the usefulness of stem cells. He also began transplanting stem cells into the organs of disabled patients, with claims that it would cure their disabilities, although no research has proven that stem cells can cure or treat disabilities. His patients’ results were mixed, as one man got better and another died almost immediately following the surgery.
It is not clear if t he cardiologist will be incurring any legal action for his surgeries, or if
he will lose his license, however, he is still performing surgeries in the Dominican Republic and holding seminars.
