My New ACL Stem Cell Infographic

By /

Today, like many Americans, I have the flu. I put this together yesterday when I felt better, so here is a compilation of information and before and after MRIs of ACLs healed with our highly precise injection of high-dose bone marrow concentrate (same-day ACL stem cell procedure). Just click on the thumbnail above to see a bigger and more detailed copy! Enjoy!

    Do the capabilities of the Regenexx physicians vary by location? If one location only estimated a 30% success rate for an ACL treatment could that be different through a different physician due to more advanced technology and procedures?

      All physicians use a common candidacy tool that is online and based on our successes and failures. Having said that, as the medical director, I like to randomly take a look at the candidacy ratings being given to make sure they match what we would do in Colorado. Hence, feel free to contact me via email and I’ll personally look at your films and tell you what I think. The email that goes to my desk is [email protected].

    Do you have success rates broken down by age group? My 13 year old daughter has a torn ACL and while the orthopedist we saw already has her on the books for surgery, I’m looking into any and all other options besides surgery. She has an MRI this Friday, after which we’ll obviously know more about what kind of tear we are dealing with. Do your physicians perform Regenexx procedures on patients her age?

      Yes we do, and we don’t recommend ACL surgery for patients of that age. Please see: and and Once you have the MRI, to see if she would be a Candidate, please submit the “Are You a Candidate” form to the right of the Blog, and instructions on how to upload the MRI will follow.

      No, we haven’t broken down this data by age group. We would expect younger patients to do well based on experience. As far as pre-maturity surgery, I would be very cautious about replacing the ACL in a skeletally immature teenager.

        Thank you for your reply! She’s scheduled for a PRP injection in a few weeks with Dr Richnack in Grass Valley, CA and surgery is cancelled!

          That is wonderful news!

    So my son has a torn acl he is 16 years old and I really don’t want him to miss an entire season of basketball because of injury. Is there a good chance he can return to basketball after the stem cell injections and a few months of rest

    1. Regenexx Team

      Yes, the recovery is drastically different from surgery as we are healing the natural ligament rather than removing it and putting in a graft at a different angle which disrupts the biomechanics, wiring and position sense of the knee. We can treat approx 70% of ACL tears. Please submit the Are You a Candidate form, so we can take a look at his MRI and see if he is a Candidate. Please see: and
