Ozzy Osbourne receiving stem cell treatments amid health problems

Ozzy Osbourne has fully embraced modern medicine amid his ongoing struggles with his health.

The 75-year-old Grammy winner revealed this week he’s receiving stem cell treatments after disclosing in November that doctors discovered a tumor on his vertebrae while undergoing his fourth spinal surgery.

“I’ve just come back from the doctor after having some stem cells put in me,” Osbourne told his “Ozzy Speaks” co-host Billy Morrison on their SiriusXM radio show. “The thing is, you have it, and you go, ‘I don’t feel that great,’ but I don’t know what it would be like if I didn’t have it.”

According to the Prince of Darkness, the treatments — which he described as “kind of like a super f—ing stem cell” — are “pretty expensive as well.”

Osbourne said he’s due to return for follow-up treatment “in about six months.”

Morrison disclosed he also underwent stem cell treatments for “hip problems” that caused him difficulty getting into his car and out of bed: “I couldn’t tie my own shoelaces, so I had injections direct to the site, five of them, and it’s gone. It fixed it.”

Last July, Osbourne announced he was pulling out as headliner of the inaugural three-day Power Trip Festival in Indio, California, due to ongoing health issues from his recent spine injury.

Months before, the former Black Sabbath frontman announced his retirement from touring as he canceled European tour dates, saying he wasn’t well enough to perform due to a “major accident” in which he damaged his spine.

In 2020, he went public with his Parkinson’s disease, which was diagnosed in 2003.

Last week, it was announced that the bat-biting “Crazy Train” singer will be inducted into the 2024 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame class as a solo artist, marking his second entry following Black Sabbath’s 2006 induction.
