WBAL – Researchers in Maryland are using stem cells from fat to grow new bone.

In January 2009, 53-year-old Susan Cossabone was in a terrible head-on collision. Her injuries made her fear that she’d never walk again, much less ride her beloved horses at her horse farm in New Jersey.

“I thought I would lose the leg. If you could have seen it when they cut off my favorite jeans — you could just see bones sticking and flesh. You couldn’t see much of a leg,” she said.

For a while, it looked as though her leg would require amputation, doctors said.
