Do you understand Stem Cell Therapy as an alternative to invasive surgery? If Orthopedic pain limits your daily activity, join Jamie Lewis, MD to learn how Regenexx Orthopedic autologous Bone Marrow Stem Cell and Platelet Therapy performed with precise image-guidance can help heal your pain. No drugs. No surgery. Non-Surgical treatment for osteoarthritis, meniscus tears, strains, muscle, ligament or tendon tears, bulging or herniated discs.
If you have encountered an injury to the knee meniscus, cartilage, ACL or MCL ligaments, or have chronic knee pain due to a past injury or arthritis, you may be a good candidate for knee stem cell therapy or platelet rich plasma procedures. Traditional options for patients suffering from these issues include arthroscopic knee surgery to repair ligament tears, or total knee joint replacement. With both surgeries, months of rehab are required to regain strength and mobility, and the patient must be aware of and prepared for associated risks.
If you have encountered a rotator cuff tear, or experience pain related to shoulder arthritis, tendonitis, tendenosis, or bursitis, you may be a good candidate for a Regenexx Procedure. Shoulder surgery is particularly difficult due to the complexity of the joint. Post surgical recovery can be painful, requiring a lengthy rehab period to restore strength and mobility to the shoulder. As an alternative to shoulder surgery, Regenexx Procedures may help alleviate shoulder pain and restore joint damage with a non-invasive injection procedure. Patients typically experience little or no down time from the procedure.
Regenexx has many non-surgical platelet and adult stem cell based procedures developed to help patients avoid spine surgery and high dose epidural steroid side effects. Our decade of experience in regenerative treatments for spine pain allows us to address as many factors as possible to gain insight into the true cause of the problem. We identify the most probable sources of pain and select the most appropriate treatment options available. Only then can the natural healing process be initiated using the safest, least invasive procedure possible for a Regenexx Procedure.
