Knee Stem Cell Procedure Research: Should You Get a Second Regenexx-SD Procedure?

 knee stem cell procedure research

Over this next few months you’ll see many reports come out of our advanced patient registry that’s now tracking thousands of patients who have had various types of Regenexx procedures in different body areas. One of the more common questions we get asked is whether a second Regenexx-SD knee stem cell procedure will allow the patient to get more improvement. These patients usually get somewhere between 25-60% improvement with their first procedure and ask us whether a second knee stem cell injection will help more. We had our bio-statistician query our Regenexx patient registry for patients who had a known result after their first knee stem cell procedure and then had a second procedure on the same knee. The results of this knee stem cell procedure research?

•When repeated at the right time, the 2nd SD procedure improved percentage outcome by 15-20 points.

•Most patients who repeated saw additional improvement.

•The patients who responded to a 2nd procedure achieved about 50% more improvement relative to the first procedure.

First, these results are only specific to our proprietary stem cell procedure and not all stem cell procedures. Second, as you’ll see over the next few months, nobody has more data collected on more patients for more time than Regenexx. Basically, there’s Regenexx and then there’s guesswork – who would you trust for your orthopedic stem cell procedure?
