MANHATTAN, Kan. (WIBW) - A ribbon cutting ceremony was held Wednesday outside the Kansas Regenerative Medicine Center in Manhattan.
Governor Sam Brownback, Kansas State University Head Football Coach Bill Snyder and Men’s Basketball Coach Bruce Weber were all in attendance for the event.
The center will house two physicians, as well as two registered nurses and a surgical technician. The facility is designed for stem cell treatment, which doctors use from fat to create additional cartilage for knees, shoulders, and other areas.
"We just didn’t want to have to go to California or the coast to have this procedure done," said founder John Farley. "So we’re happy to bring it here; Manhattan has really welcomed us, the state of Kansas really welcomed us. And we live here, we’re part of this community and we said “hey, you know, let’s grow it right out here.” And we want to make this available to Kansans all over and all people all over the Midwest."
The new facility is located at 4809 Vue Du Lac Place Suite 101 and is open 8 to 5, Monday through Friday.
