Regenexx Knee Patient Finishes the Ironman
Dr. Joe Maroon Finishes Ironman Triathlon. This 68 year old went from being told he needed a knee replacement, to successfully resuming his triathlon career with a Hawaii Ironman finish! And while not eveyone will become a triathlete, after the Regenexx-C procedure, he was able to complete the 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride and 26.2 mile run.
This patient was treated with the Regenexx-C cultured stem cell injections and not Regenexx-SD.
Finally, not every knee arthritis patient we treat can expect this same type of result.
