ACL Tear Stem Cell Treatment…No Surgery

acl tear stem cell treatment

Is there such a  an ACL Tear Stem Cell Treatment? Michael is a 52 year old male with history of a meniscus tear and an ACL tear. He injured his ACL playing basketball and was told that he needed to get the ACL removed and replaced. Not wanting that major surgery and looking for a surgery alternative, he found our clinic. Dr. Hanson treated his ACL and meniscus tear with the Regenexx-SD procedure, placing his own stem cells into the knee ACL using fluoroscopic guidance. His pre and post MRI are above (stem cell procedure was in December 2011). Note the white dotted circle in the pre-procedure MRI shows a clear break in the ACL ligament (red arrow). While these results are not necessarily typical, note the same ligament about 5 months after the injection (white dashed circle), which shows no break. We’re pleased that Michael achieved these results without surgery or major downtime, just with an injection of his own stem cells into the knee ACL ligament.

The upshot? We’ve successfully treated other patients with ACL tears without surgery and feel that most of these partial to complete non-retracted ACL tears can be helped though injection.

NOTE:  Regenexx-SD is a medical procedure and like all medical procedures has a success and failure rate.
