Uses Your Own Stem Cells to Help Your Joints Heal
The non-surgical Stem Cell Therapy procedure utilizes your own concentrated stem cells into injured or arthritic joints to help your body heal.
Stem Cell Therapy Facts & Information
Stem Cell Therapy as an alternative solution to invasive surgery for patients suffering from a wide range of degenerative conditions and injuries including:
Knee Pain, Osteoarthritis & Meniscal Tears
Hip Arthritis & Labral Tears
Shoulder Pain & Tendinitis
Torn Rotator Cuff
Chronic Neck & Back Pain
Wrist, Elbow & Ankle Pain
Foot Pain & Plantar Fasciitis
The Regenexx® Stem Cell Therapy protocol produces the highest stem cell concentrations possible. All procedures utilize advanced imaging guidance to ensure the stem cells are delivered precisely to the area in need to assist healing in the damaged tissues.
How Does Stem Cell Therapy Help Heal the Body?
Our body’s stem cells are responsible for healing us. However, as we age or sustain injury, we sometimes cannot get enough of these healing cells into the injured area. Stem Cell Therapy solves this problem by harvesting the patient’s own cells and then injecting them directly into the area in need. These cells can assist in the healing of damaged tissue, tendons, ligaments, cartilage and bone while decreasing downtime and avoiding painful rehabilitation periods typically associated with surgery. In a series of three injections spaced roughly two to five days apart, the patient can be well on their way to a full recovery.
How Long Does the Procedure Take?
The Stem Cell Therapy protocol is a series of three procedures that happen over the course of several days.
PRE-INJECTION: A dextrose solution that stimulates surrounding soft tissue & prepares it for stem cell procedure.
SAME-DAY STEM CELL PROCEDURE: In the morning, blood and bone marrow samples are taken. Later that day, stem cells and blood platelets are introduced into the injury site.
POST-INJECTION: Additional platelet stimulants are introduced to invigorate stem cells and boost healing process.
What are the Expected Results?
Stem Cell Therapy is intended to help your body actually heal injured tissue. Initial improvement and reduction in pain may be experienced very quickly, with continued improvement as the healing progresses. Patient studies have shown Stem Cell Therapy to be very effective at relieving pain, while MRI images have confirmed successful tissue repair following stem cell therapy. The need for surgery can be greatly reduced by treating injured tissues before the damage progresses and the condition is irreversible.
Is Stem Cell Therapy Right for You?
Have you been diagnosed with one the following:
-Non-healing bony fracture
-Bulging (non herniated) lumbar (lower back) disc
-Partial tear of the rotator cuff
-Other knee injuries such as a meniscus tear or tear of the ACL or MCL
Are you currently experiencing:
-Knee, hip, or ankle pain
-Limited range of motion, stiffness, swelling, and tenderness
-The feeling that a joint may ‘give out’ or lock up on you
