Would stem cell therapy benefit me after coronary artery bypass and pacemaker?
I have had 2 triple bypasses and a pacemaker/defibrillator implant. Would stem cell surgery help me?

It is possible that you may benefit from stem cell therapy. It is currently only available in research trials and is mainly for those who have active heart failure symptoms. Information on the trials can be obtained on the Texas Heart Institute website.
