Regenerative Medicine & Cell Therapy at Austin Sports Medicine
Dr. Carey Windler is a member of the Regenerative Care Network which allows the use of umbilical cord stem cells for patients with osteoarthritis. This complies with Texas law (commonly called Charlie’s law) which was effective September 1, 2017. Under the law, physicians may provide stem cell treatment so long as they adhere to a variety of requirements. These include treatment according to an Institutional Review Board (IRB) protocol and making yearly reports on outcomes to the Texas State Department of Health.
The Regenerative Care Network strives to help its physicians comply with the Texas law. Please see the Legal Overview here.
