Nice Article on Regenexx by Bioinformant

by Chris Centeno, MD /

This is a two-part interview by Cade Hildreth, an elite rugby player who is also the CEO of Bioinformant. She writes about and researches cell-based therapies and is also a Regenexx patient! Enjoy!

Part 1 – Q&A with Dr. Chris Centeno, International Expert in Use of MSCs for Orthopedic Applications

Importantly, he is also visionary behind the revolutionary Regenexx® technology, a procedure which involves extracting a small bone marrow sample through a needle and a blood draw from a vein in your arm. These samples are then processed in a laboratory and the cells it contains injected into the area needing repair, with the goal of delivering large numbers of stem cells to the injured area.

Part 2 – Q&A with Dr. Chris Centeno, Visionary Behind Regenexx® Stem Cell Technology

This is Part 2 of a two-part question and answer interview with Dr. Chris Centeno, an international expert in regenerative medicine and the clinical use of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) for orthopedic applications. He specializes in clinical use of adult stem cells for orthopedic injuries, which he treats through same-day procedures at his clinic in Denver, Colorado, and through cultured expansion of mesenchymal stem cells at a clinic in Grand Cayman. He first performed these adult stem cell procedures in the U.S. in 2005-2006, and his clinic has since has treated thousands orthopedic patients with stem cell based therapies.

As the President/CEO of a stem cell research firm and an international rugby athlete, I have both professional and personal interest in the technologies that he has developed. He is best known for the Regenexx® technology, an approach that uses needle based procedures coupled with sophisticated guidance techniques to place large numbers of stem cells at the site needing repair. This approach can often replace the need for invasive orthopedic surgeries.

Part 2 – Q&A with Dr. Chris Centeno, International Expert in Use of MSCs for Orthopedic Applications

Cade Hildreth: The Regenexx® procedure works very well for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears that have an inch or less of retraction. How will this treatment option affect the hundreds of thousands of ACL surgeries that are currently done each year?

    Does the sheath around the ACL exist in other ligaments also?

    How do you think autoimmune diseases impact microenviroments?

      Chris,
      The ACL is unique in that it has an invagination of the synovial capsule of the knee which acts like a sheath. Unknown how autoimmune disease will impact this type of ACL stem cell treatment.

Regenerative procedures are commonly used to treat musculoskelatal trauma, overuse injuries, and degenerative issues, including failed surgeries.
Select Your Problem Area
Shoulder

Shoulder

Many Shoulder and Rotator Cuff injuries are good candidates for regenerative treatments. Before considering shoulder arthroscopy or shoulder replacement, consider an evaluation of your condition with a regenerative treatment specialist.

  • Rotator Cuff Tears and Tendinitis
  • Shoulder Instability
  • SLAP Tear / Labral Tears
  • Shoulder Arthritis
  • Other Degenerative Conditions & Overuse Injuries

Cervical Spine

Spine

Many spine injuries and degenerative conditions are good candidates for regenerative treatments and there are a number of studies showing promising results in treating a wide range of spine problems. Spine surgery should be a last resort for anyone, due to the cascade of negative effects it can have on the areas surrounding the surgery. And epidural steroid injections are problematic due to their long-term negative impact on bone density.

  • Herniated, Bulging, Protruding Discs
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • SI Joint Syndrome
  • Sciatica
  • Pinched Nerves and General Back Pain
  • And more

Knee

Knees

Knees are the target of many common sports injuries. Sadly, they are also the target of a number of surgeries that research has frequently shown to be ineffective or minimally effective. Knee arthritis can also be a common cause for aging athletes to abandon the sports and activities they love. Regenerative procedures can be used to treat a wide range of knee injuries and conditions. They can even be used to reduce pain and delay knee replacement for more severe arthritis.

  • Knee Meniscus Tears
  • Knee ACL Tears
  • Knee Instability
  • Knee Osteoarthritis
  • Other Knee Ligaments / Tendons & Overuse Injuries
  • And more

Hand & Wrist

Hand and wrist injuries and arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and conditions relating to overuse of the thumb, are good candidates for regenerative treatments. Before considering surgery, consider an evaluation of your condition with a regenerative treatment specialist.
  • Hand and Wrist Arthritis
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Trigger Finger
  • Thumb Arthritis (Basal Joint, CMC, Gamer’s Thumb, Texting Thumb)
  • Other conditions that cause pain

Elbow

Elbow

Most injuries of the elbow’s tendons and ligaments, as well as arthritis, can be treated non-surgically with regenerative procedures.

  • Golfer’s elbow & Tennis elbow
  • Arthritis
  • Ulnar collateral ligament wear (common in baseball pitchers)
  • And more

Hip

Hip

Hip injuries and degenerative conditions become more common with age. Do to the nature of the joint, it’s not quite as easy to injure as a knee, but it can take a beating and pain often develops over time. Whether a hip condition is acute or degenerative, regenerative procedures can help reduce pain and may help heal injured tissue, without the complications of invasive surgical hip procedures.

  • Labral Tear
  • Hip Arthritis
  • Hip Bursitis
  • Hip Sprain, Tendonitis or Inflammation
  • Hip Instability

Foot & Ankle

Foot & Ankle

Foot and ankle injuries are common in athletes. These injuries can often benefit from non-surgical regenerative treatments. Before considering surgery, consider an evaluation of your condition with a regenerative treatment specialist.
  • Ankle Arthritis
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Ligament sprains or tears
  • Other conditions that cause pain
