Social Media is a great tool, as it allows us to hear from people in ways we would not otherwise. Six months ago we heard from Joseph through Facebook, inquiring about whether we sold Regenexx tee shirts. He had just had a procedure, and wanted to wear it as an opportunity to talk about his Regenexx knee stem cell recovery. His excitement was infectious!
Joseph had been suffering with deep arthritic knee pain for ten years. His knee had gotten progressively worse to the point that he needed a cane, and he was no longer able to do the things he needed or wanted to do, which as a husband and father of young children was very difficult.
He decided to treat his knee arthritis non-surgically and had a Regenexx SD procedure done on his left knee by Dr. Marc Adelsheimer, one of our Regenexx Providers at Rehabilitation and Pain Specialists in Pittsburgh. With the RAPS team’s great care, soon after the procedure he was walking with just a brace on his knee and without pain for the first time in 10 years.
Through the months we’ve learned more about Joseph’s recovery. Getting updates and pictures of his journey is always a day brightener. From the first time back on a treadmill, to lifting weights, to running for the first time in many years took incredible determination. Getting back to doing the things he loves with his family, and being able to do things he never thought he’d be able to do again, is what this is all about. We’ve also learned how Joseph has used his experience and his Regenexx knee stem cell recovery to pay it forward, and reach out to help others dealing with the types of issues he dealt with during his years of chronic pain with a website he created.
We received this Video last week as a 6 month update…
The upshot? A lot of research, time and commitment goes into always working to improve the cutting edge Regenexx procedures and the tools to even more effectively predict outcome. It’s really wonderful and humbling to see people like Joseph and others using what that technology has done in their lives, to help others. We can’t wait for the 12 month update!
Like all medical procedures Regenexx-SD has a success and failure rate. Not all patients will experience the same results.
