Will stem cells mean doctors are no longer needed nearly as much?
 
Of course we'll still need them for emergency medicine like broken bones etc, but with stem cells there exists the very real chance that entire organs can be regrown... specialists would be obsolete, as why fix something you can just replace with a brand new part?

We will definitely need them for everything they do now. Stem cells don't do everything as of yet. We are not even positive what they can do now.
Also, Most people will not be able to afford it and many many people will be hesitant to use it.
We are only in the stage of experimenting. We have only looked at the positives of using stem cells. The negative effects may take up to a decade to discover. Yet, there are many controversial issues with using them. There are still problems to be solved. For example, people need stem cells compatible with their bodies.
