‘Desperate’ Tarek El Moussa Shares Graphic Photo of Stem Cell Treatment for Recent Back Injury
“Tarek El Moussa taking dramatic steps to get himself on the road to recovery.
Days after sharing on social media that he had injured his back again, the Flip or Flop star is seeking help for his scary injury that has left the 36-year-old “barely” able to walk.
On Wednesday, El Moussa posted a graphic picture of himself receiving the stem cell treatment, along with a photo of his medical team.
“Well folks!!!!! As you know I’m desperate to fix my back so…..I did STEM CELL surgery today!!” he captioned the photos on Instagram.
“It’s CRAZY!!! They lipo my fat out with a 12 inch needle,” continued El Moussa, adding that he “asked to take all my fat” but “they said no.”
The reality star went on to detail the process. “They spin it and separate the stem cells into a liquid,” explained El Moussa. “They then take the liquid and inject it through an IV. Somehow…the stem cells find the injured areas of your body and begin the process of healing it at a super fast rate.”
Following the liposuction, “they put over 1,000,000 stem cells” back into his body, said El Moussa.
“It’s wild seeing the technology and future of medicine,” stated the HGTV star before seeing if any of his Instagram followers have had stem cell injections. “Is anyone familiar with it?” he asked.
“Thank you Brent at @rockinstitute…….I AM PRAYING THIS WORKS!!! I WILL KEEP ALL MY WONDERFUL FANS UPDATED!!” concluded El Moussa.”
