Stem cell treatment may help circulation

Poor circulation in the legs and feet can lead to the loss of limbs or even death.

Now, a new treatment being tested at the University of Miami School of Medicine uses stem cells to help get blood flowing again. Doctors are taking the stem cells from a patient's hip bones and injecting them into their legs and feet.

Doctors say they believe the treatment could help many people with circulation problems, like Buerger's disease and peripheral artery disease.
