Low Back Stem Cell Long-term Success

low back stem cell

KG is now a model in her early 40’s who had a failed low back surgery. Several years ago, her chronic sciatica was being managed by us with epidural steroid injections. These epidural shots would give her a few weeks to months of relief, but nothing long-term. We also had a concern about managing her this way due to the serious side effects of steroid anti-inflammatory use. Her other options were to stay on high dose nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAID’s like Celebrex), but we now know these drugs can cause heart problems. Instead she underwent the Regenexx-C disc procedure, a low back stem cell treatment, in 2008 for a disc bulge, which promptly resolved after we placed her own stem cells in her low back disc. We got this e-mail from her this week:

“I wanted to touch base with you, to tell you that I’m feeling great! My back, my spine, is wonderful. It seems to be getting better all the time. I’m sleeping, moving, functioning very well. I cannot thank you enough for what you and your staff has done for me.”

It’s great to hear that KG is doing well after a single injection of her own stem cells into her low back disc bulge 2.5+ years ago. We’re happy that was able to dodge the bullet of another invasive back surgery! It’s important to know that all patients don’t get these same results.

NOTE: Regenexx-C is a medical procedure and like all medical procedures it has a success and failure rate.  Not all patients should expect the same results.
