“Our financials directly reflect the success of our ongoing efforts to simultaneously expand and streamline operations to continue to serve the increasing market demand for stem cell therapy and regenerative health services,” said Mike Tomas, President and CEO of U.S. Stem Cell, Inc. “Driving innovative therapies while helping to define and set industry standards requires a delicate balance. We are working hard to achieve that balance, and I believe our third quarter financials demonstrate that effort.”
