Regenerative Orthopedic Medicine
Regenerative Orthopedic Medicine changes the way we approach orthopedic injuries and problems. Regenerative Orthopedics employs the patient’s own human growth factors and adult stem cells to mobilize the human body’s repair mechanism and heal degenerated or damaged tissue. Regenerative Orthopedics consists of non-surgical injections of stem cells, platelet rich plasma (PRP), or alpha 2-macroglobulin (A2M) to create an environment in which the body’s damaged tissues can re-grow and repair themselves without invasive surgery.

More About Our Regenerative Orthopedic Treatments

Regenerative orthopedics is one name for the new field of medicine that boosts the body’s ability to heal itself without drugs or surgery. Regenerative treatments use a patient’s own repair cells to address orthopedic conditions such as arthritis, and sports medicine injuries including ligament, tendon, and cartilage tears. The concept of the body being able to heal itself is not new. What is new is the latest technology that allows us to concentrate the body’s repair cells at the sites of injury and greatly increase the body’s ability to heal. Regenerative treatment is based on our understanding that certain tissues in the body have a limited blood supply that slows the repair process and results in incomplete or only partial repair of injuries. By bringing concentrated blood cells to the area with precise injections into damaged tissues, we help the body make more complete repairs and often eliminate the need for surgery.

Regenex Treatments

Regenexx treatments have evolved from the first use of stem cells to treat arthritis in the US in 2005. They have been developed in association with continuous laboratory and clinical research on their purity, concentration, application, and effectiveness. Regenexx treatments are unique for their custom lab processing, their precise injection techniques, and ongoing data collection on their outcomes.  Most importantly, Regenexx treatments are customized for individual patients following a comprehensive evaluation of the cause of injury and degeneration. Their effectiveness is being recognized by a growing list of corporate clients who are adding Regenexx treatments to the list of covered medical services for their employees. 

About Regenexx:  Regenexx is a national company of affiliated physicians dedicated to the non-surgical treatment of orthopedic conditions including arthritis and sports injuries. Regenexx physicians were the first doctors in the US to use stem cells to treat joint arthritis in 2005. Nearly half of all the research in the field of orthopedic regenerative medicine has been published by Regenexx laboratories and physicians. Regenexx is a leading provider of state-of-the-art regenerative procedures. These procedures are increasingly recognized for their effectiveness as evidenced by the growing number of corporate clients who have added them to the list of covered medical services for their employees.

Stem Cell Treatment

Stem cells are found in all tissues of the human body. They are the most powerful repair cells we have. They behave as ‘general contractors’ at sites of injuries directing local cells and summoning distant cells to help out in repairing the damage. They also have the ability to transform themselves into cells that are needed in the repair of arthritis and sports injuries, namely, cartilage, tendon, ligament, and bone cells.

Stem cell treatment has emerged from the latest research and technology in the field of orthopedics. Specially trained physicians may now concentrate a patient’s stem cells in large numbers at sites of tissue damage. This greatly increases the amount and quality of repair in the body. Stem cell treatment is the treatment of choice for ligament and tendon tears and moderate to severe arthritis. Stem cell therapy, properly performed, can reduce or eliminate the need for orthopedic surgery.

Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP)

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is a special preparation of a patient’s own blood where all other blood cells except platelets have been removed. They are tiny cells in the blood which figure prominently in repair processes. They contain powerful growth and repair hormones that stimulate cells at the site of injury to begin repair and summon cells from other parts of the body to help as well. PRP treatment is very effective for muscle pulls, ligament sprains, small tendon tears, and early arthritis.

Pain Management

Classic Pain Management treats pain with medications and injection procedures. Pain procedures are mainly cortisone injections and nerve ablations. These procedures are toxic and destructive to the body. Regenerative orthopedic treatment with PRP and stem cells has begun to replace pain procedures for joint pain. They are more effective and treat pain by helping to restore joint tissues.

Arthritis Treatment

Arthritis is a degenerative disease affecting joints. Like all degenerative diseases, they worsen with time. All joints in the body can be affected by arthritis given enough time and wear and tear. Cartilage, which covers the articular surfaces of the bones of a joint, is affected first. Once cartilage is damaged enough, the bone of joints become involved. Exercise is the best way to keep a joint young and healthy. Standard treatments for arthritis including cortisone injections and surgery ultimately only increase degeneration and lead to joint replacement.. Regenerative orthopedic treatment can slow degeneration in a joint and stop it altogether.

Sports Medicine

Traditional Orthopedic Sports Medicine is a surgical subspecialty treating joint pain and injuries that may or may not be the result of playing sports. Surgical treatment of ligament, tendon, and cartilage tears is a double edge sword. For whatever short term improvement, there is usually a long term consequence as a result of removing or relocating joint tissues. Regenerative Orthopedic Sports Medicine treats the same conditions but without surgery using a patient’s own cells to effect needed repairs in the joint. This preserves joint tissues and avoids the instability and degeneration that may come from altering the native joint structure.
