Blogging from the Caymans Again…

by Chris Centeno, MD /

blogging from the Caymans

I’m down at our licensed site in Grand Cayman this and next week, working with patients who flew here to access the many advanced stem cell and platelet technologies we offer. Last night I had dinner with the family at one of our favorite places to eat on Seven Mile Beach. The above picture is of the early evening sky (plus a filter). I hear it’s snowing back in Boulder!

This next week I’ll be on “Island Time,” when blogging usually slows a bit. Having said that, it’s also a great way to spend quality time with my family while I’m working and to enjoy the beautiful Caribbean spring breezes!

The Regenexx-C procedure is not approved by the US FDA and is only offered in countries via license where culture expanded autologous cells are permitted via local regulations.

    Pass on my best to Tony (one of your patients)… I sat next to him on the flight over from London this week to Cayman and he only had great things to say about his procedure. I’ll be in touch about my ACL very soon… enjoy island time!

    Has anyone on here had an injection on their hip instead of a hip replacement surgery? How is it working out for you?

  3. Judy

    Would like to read the answer to Nora’s question regarding the hip.

  4. Irene

    I am also interested in Nora’s question and any answer?

      Irene and Judy and Nora,

      I believe Nora has asked for Patients who have had procedures instead of hip replacements to respond. That said, there is much information on the website about Hip Procedures, Hip Outcomes and Hip Data:http://www.regenexx.com/the-regenexx-procedures/hip-surgery/ http://www.regenexx.com/recent-results/hip-case-results/ Hips are the one joint of the body for which age (55 and over) can affect the robustness of outcome.

    I have a 16 year old soccer player that had ACL surgery 6/2015 and her ACL is continually loose, even playing with a Bregg custom brace. She does not want to have surgery again and would like to play soccer at the next level in 2017. Is she a candidate for this procedure?

    1. Chris Centeno Post author

      Yes, we can treat about 70% of ACL tears without surgery. See http://www.regenexx.com/regenexx-acl-repair-for-torn-anterior-cruciate-ligament/

    Sorry, I should add to my comment. She has had extensive PT and works 1v1 with a trainer 1x a week for the last 9 months. She had a hamstring graft for her ACL replacement.

    1. Chris Centeno Post author

      Suzanne, yes that sounds like something we can generally treat. This sounds similar to a recent case of a college soccer athlete on his second ACL graft, see https://regenexx.com/blog/acl-surgery-failure/

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

  • Trigger Finger
  • Thumb Arthritis (Basal Joint, CMC, Gamer’s Thumb, Texting Thumb)

  • 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
