Meniscus Tear Repair? One Patient’s Report after a Knee Stem Cell Injection
What does a patient think of meniscus tear repair with stem cells? I’d like to share an unsolicited e-mail I got last week. Jamie is a 57 yo man who injured his knee in June of 2012 while fly fishing. We first saw him that October with a 3 month history of right knee pain. His MRIs ultimately showed a tear of the posterior medial meniscus with ACL laxity and a pinched nerve in the low back. He was treated with the Regenexx-SD procedure for his meniscus and ACL and PL-Disc for his low back. Here are his comments:
I want to express my sincere thanks to Dr. Schultz and your organization. Dr. Schultz and his team did an excellent job with the Regenexx procedure on the torn meniscus and ACL on my right knee in October 2012. I could not have asked for any step along the way to be better! Before the procedure, Mark Reilly completed a functional analysis of my body. He made a number of suggestions of exercises that would be beneficial to my progress with my knee after the procedure and for my overall conditioning. I returned to see Mark after 6 months to assess my progress/improvements. I have had tremendous results from the Regenexx procedure. I feel that the exercise suggestions Mark made and his comparative follow-up analysis were very beneficial in helping me to objectively and subjectively assess my progress. I would highly recommend this follow-up analysis with Mark for anyone having the Regenexx procedure in the future.
Thank You to Your Entire Organization!

We’re glad to hear Jamie is doing better and also glad to hear that patient’s appreciate that we take a whole person approach to treating knees with stem cells!
