    Great presentation! Little commercial bed side centrifuge compare to a sophisticated Processing Lab backed up by a Research Lab! That’s the very place for innovation !

      Thanks Sam!

    Great presentation and very easy to comprehend the differences. my only suggestion is that it appears Denver is the best place to go for treatment. The client/patient should know that other Regenexx facilities are just as good. It is a bit confusing and does make one wonder,

    1. Regenexx Team Post author

      Kathy,
      Thanks for the feedback! I can see how that might be confusing. As well as a Clinic, Regenexx Headquarters houses the research arm of Regenexx. That research drives procedure development, and those procedures are available throughout the network.

    I had an infusion four screws two bars in the l4- l5 I got a staff infection was sick for 7 months . Had to have a port put in my arm to give myself medication three times a day for six week plus had to open me up again to clean out the staff. That’s is why I went the stem cell way for my knees still waiting to see if it going to work.

      Connie,
      Wish we could have treated L4-L5 and prevented all of that! Good choice on stem cells for your knees; hoping they feel better and stronger soon!

    Great Job. I have a meniscus tear in my right knee as a result of a loose German Shepherd dog attack. This video is EXACTLY what I needed to cost-justify to the dog owner’s insurance company why I need to go to Regenxx instead of their local budget stem cell shop with the “bargain basement” prices. Thanks Regenexx.

    Good job on video. The video does show the best place to have procedures done is Colorado. I had the stem cell procedure done on my knee. I do not remember all the equipment in video. When I returned for my 3 month booster I was told I could not find out what improvements had been made since injections. But it sounded like in Colorado I could have a ultra sound to compare.

    1. Regenexx Team Post author

      Donna,
      The set up in Colorado is different because the Centeno Schultz Clinic is Regenexx Headquarters and houses the Regenexx Research department, which is the largest and best equipped lab of it’s type in the world. Not housing those things, individual Regenexx Provider’s offices look different. Unique to Regenexx, each Provider has their own Regenexx cell biology lab, and obviously all of the equipment needed for the treatments they provide. Ultrasound is used in diagnosis and as guidance for certain treatments, while other treatments require Fluoroscopy guidance. Improvement is measured in Pain and Function, as despite what has been drilled into people’s minds by Orthopedic surgeons, pain is not related to Structure: http://www.regenexx.com/blog/osteoarthritis-pain-not-related-to-structure-again/ Where were you treated?

      1. Donna

        Florida. I wanted to know if bone regenerated and if cartiledge grew. I had a bad fall a few days ago, fell on my repaired knee. I return to clinic in Sept for a booster would like to see the difference from 9 weeks to 6 months if possible

        1. Regenexx Team Post author

          Donna,
          So sorry to hear about your fall! Don’t hesitate to call Bradenton if you have any concerns about your knee. In reference to September, they can order any tests you want done. How was your knee feeling before your fall?

          1. Donna

            My knee was great. I live in a jungle in Costa Rica and was able to horseback ride for 4 hours one day and hike the farm for 3 hours another day. Plus just walking through the farm checking out the animals, need both knees. Now walking is very difficult. I have my brace on.

          2. Regenexx Team Post author

            Donna,
            I would contact your Dr. in Bradenton. They would be able to give specific advice having both examined and treated your knee. If you’re not currently taking the Stem Cell Support Formula and you can get it delivered to Costa Rica, that could only help. While we don’t deliver internationally, it’s available through Amazon, and they appear to deliver internationally. Also, important to avoid NSAIDS.

  6. Dee Higgins Mueller

    Very well done. Why is it that not all of the doctors in the Regenexx network do all of the procedures that Dr. Centeno does? That is somewhat of a problem if you suspect that something else needs to be addressed (for ex., SI joint or facets) that your physician within the network doesn’t handle. One needs to come to Denver, then? Does that facility do MRI’s and X-rays? Thank you for your response.

    Cordially, Dee

    1. Regenexx Team Post author

      Dee,
      It does not. Imaging centers for MRI and X-rays abound, but as you can see in the video,the Centeno Schultz Clinic in CO is Regenexx Headquarters and houses the Regenexx Research department, which is the largest and best equipped lab of it’s type in the world. The set up would look different at Regenexx Provider’s offices as they have their individual staff, and a cell biology lab but no research facility. Ultrasound is used in diagnosis and as guidance for certain treatments, while other treatments require Fluoroscopy guidance. Improvement is measured in Pain and Function, as pain is not related to Structure: http://www.regenexx.com/blog/osteoarthritis-pain-not-related-to-structure-again/

Imaging centers for MRI and X-rays abound, but as you can see in the video, the Centeno Schultz Clinic in CO is Regenexx Headquarters and houses the Regenexx Research department, which is the largest and best equipped lab of it’s type in the world. Dr. Centeno is the person who, based on our ongoing research, patient outcome from our registry and his desire to solve as many problems as the Surgical paradigm has failed to solve without creating more, innovates. The constant updating of procedures is reflected at all of our Provider locations. An incredibly specialized groundbreaking procedure like alar transverse approach for C0-C2 treatment http://www.regenexx.com/alar-ligament-treatment/ is so specialized that it is currently only available in CO, and if a Patient’s Candidacy evaluation indicated the need for that procedure, that patient would be scheduled for treatment there. SI joint and Facet issues can be treated at any Provider for whom Spine is listed on the Provider list: http://www.regenexx.com/find-a-physician/

  7. Charlie McCartan

    Clear and readily understandable. If I chose Ocala, FL for my procedure, would I have the same expertise there as in Colorado?

    1. Regenexx Team Post author

      Thanks Charlie! Yes! They do amazing work down there: http://newregenortho.com/

    Where is best site for foot treatments.

    1. Regenexx Team Post author

      Stella,
      The best site for foot treatment would be at the point of injury, or at the point of the origin of the problem with precise image guided injections of your own platelets and or stem cells: http://www.regenexx.com/the-regenexx-procedures/ankle-surgery-alternative/ Locations that offer these Regenexx treatment: http://www.regenexx.com/find-a-physician/

  9. Dennis

    I believe I posted a comment/question here that I don’t see now (re: a recent study on cartilage repair methods). I really appreciate reading your informative posts, and from what I can tell Regenexx seems tops in the orthopedic stem cell field, but is there a reason my question is no longer here? Or I may have missed it & it could be somewhere else I guess.

    1. Regenexx Team Post author

      Dennis,
      The type scaffolds you mentioned are antithetical to the purpose of Interventional Orthopedics, as they are inserted surgically and would only be relevant if pain were related to structure, however, it isn’t. The paradigm that pain is related to structure is a vestige of the Surgical paradigm that has damaged the joints of countless people. http://www.regenexx.com/bmj-chimes-scandalously-poor-evidence-for-orthopedic-surgery/ http://www.regenexx.com/blog/osteoarthritis-pain-not-related-to-structure-again/ http://www.regenexx.com/blog/the-orthopedic-structural-paradigm-is-dead/

      1. Dennis

        Thanks for the response & I’ll be sure to read your links carefully. I didn’t know that about the scaffolds. I try to educate myself but this is all still new to me and the studies in Pub Med, especially to a layman as myself, can be bewildering!

        1. Regenexx Team Post author

          Dennis,
          It’s a fast paced field, but that’s a good thing. Just holding the flashlight!

    Hello,
    I would like to hear from patients who have had this procedure to a knee, bone on bone …I like to hear results , over time ….The info above does not address any of this ..

    1. Regenexx Team Post author

      Rick,
      There are many blogs which have been based on updates we’ve received from knee patients. Please see: https://regenexx.com/blog/4-year-knee-stem-cell-procedure-update-amazing-patients/ and https://regenexx.com/blog/6-year-knee-stem-cell-update/ and https://regenexx.com/blog/ironman-stem-cell-procedure/ and https://regenexx.com/blog/stem-cell-treatment-for-knees/ and https://regenexx.com/blog/knee-stem-cell-injection/ and https://regenexx.com/blog/getting-a-golfer-back-on-the-links-with-knee-stem-cells/ and many others in the video section of the website: https://regenexx.com/resources/videos/ You’ll also find many people commenting about their procedures on our Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/Regenexx/. If you’d like to speak to a patient who has gone through a procedure for severe knee arthritis, please let us know.

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

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.
