Hi Anonymous,
Thank you for your question and welcome to EmpowHer. Stem cell treatments are still considered experimental but here is an article that was posted not too long ago on our site for your reading pleasure http://www.empowher.com/poliomyelitis/content/stem-cell-therapy-used-cure-polio.

I would certainly talk to your treating physician before any experimental treatment options. I hope this information helps.

Good luck,
Missie
