Woman Claims She Was Misled On Stem Cell Treatment, Mike Curley, 2020
Cornetti has a medical condition called degenerative arthritis of the knees. She attended a seminar involving Utah Cord Bank and Verri Chiropractic Associates PC in which Verri convinced her that the injections were safe, effective, and approved by the Food and Drug Administration. These injections were subsequently administered to her by Frank Verri and a nurse with Gimiva PC, another defendant in the case.
Due to this, she suffered multiple injuries, bacterial infections, septic right knee, damage to her bones, joints and ligaments, gastrointestinal injuries and other complications resulting from prolonged hospital stays. She has also claimed that the defendants did not have the proper licenses or certifications necessary to provide human stem cell injections.
The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages, including punitive damages, only stating that the amount is greater than $35,000.
