Minnesota Timberwolves’ Karl-Anthony Towns undergoes stem cell treatment to avoid surgery
Physicians administered stem cell treatment to Karl-Anthony Towns last Friday. They targeted both his knees, left ankle, left wrist, and right finger.
Despite his injuries, the star center for the Minnesota Timberwolves played during the games leading to the Western Conference. He wanted to avoid surgery and make a full recovery by training camp.
It seems he decided on this treatment, as the pain in both knees was ongoing and getting worse. Recently his girlfriend posted a photo of him recovering from the procedure.
