ACL Stem Cell Surgery: Do You Need Knee Surgery to Get an Injection?

I’m a pretty practical guy. At the end of the day, I try and relate everything to the real world, as in medicine, it’s easy to get caught up in the “medical bubble.” What do I mean? To get too caught up in the business or science of medicine and forget about how medical decisions…

Can a Same Day Stem Cell Procedure Reduce Disc Bulge Size?

We’ve been impressed with using stem cell injections in the right kind of discs.

Many of the patients I talk with are under the impression that they will become more active after hip replacement.

Spondylolysis Recovery Time: Avoiding the Knife

Spondylolysis is common in disturbingly young athletes who are born with weakened or disconnected areas of their spine. Sometimes this break in the spine bone heals, and sometimes it doesn’t. When the spot doesn’t mend, the patient usually undergoes a big surgery that can cause serious problems. So if your spondylolysis recovery time is taking too…

HD-BMC-Regenexx vs. Bedside Machines

The fact that we doctors love gizmos is a big issue in same-day stem cell procedures. There are no less than 20 different machines and/or kits that will concentrate bone marrow stem cells. There’s just one problem with this concept: it’s at best a one-size-fits-all approach, and at worst it’s delivering an inferior stem cell procedure…
