Regenexx Pakistan?

Regenexx Pakistan

I guess you know you’ve created a powerful movement when the name of a patented medical procedure gets “borrowed” by physicians to promote what they do. Case in point is an ad from a Pakistani news site that we found yesterday (above). While it’s not the first time others were able to claim they’re doing Regenexx and really aren’t, it’s certainly the most interesting.

Are There Regenexx Sites Outside the U.S.?

While we’re in discussion with physicians in the Middle East, Asia, and Europe, the only official Regenexx site outside the U.S. right now is in Australia. Dr. Kevin Boundy has been with us for many years, and he does excellent work just outside of Sydney. No other ex-US site exists right now, so if you see the Regenexx name being used, it’s likely just a doc who bought a bedside unit trying to add credibility to what he or she is doing, not a trained Regenexx provider using our protocols and participating in the treatment registry.

The upshot? On the one hand, I guess I’m flattered that our message is getting all the way to the nooks and crannies of the earth. On the other hand, we work hard to try to ensure that when you walk into a Regenexx clinic that the physician has a set amount of experience, expertise, and training and that what you get is a Regenexx procedure. We’ve even asked doctors to leave the network when they’re offering patients lesser therapies. So beware of physicians just slapping our name on their practices!

    My left knee was injured after falling through a drain cover. Two quarter inch meniscus years were repaired. Still having problems with knee. Have been told to wear s hinged knee brace for three months, but doesn’t seem to help. Dr. seems to think next step is total knee replacement. Please help with any info! Thanks!
    Unfortunately my insurance won’t pay for your procedure. Do you offer any assistance with payments? I work in sales and would gladly help promote this surgery if successful!!

      Bess,
      It’s not just yours, no insurance pays for stem cell procedures of any kind. Most insurance, however, does pay for our hour long exam at the end of which you would have an accurate diagnosis, hard to come by in the current checkbox medical system.
      A Regenexx patient recently commented: “Don’t let the fact that it’s not covered by insurance scare you away. Had a successful outcome with my procedure, just a few days downtime, no pain afterward, worth every penny. At least do a consultation (covered by my ins.) it may be more affordable than you think.”
      Some of our Providers do offer financing options. Here is some info on why meniscus surgery causes problems: http://www.regenexx.com/blog/meniscus-surgery-alternatives/ http://www.regenexx.com/should-i-have-meniscus-surgery/ and also on the important questions to consider and ask re knee replacement: http://www.regenexx.com/blog/knee-replacement-questions/

    How do you know if a physician is authorized to perform this therapy?

      Rosemaru,
      Only Regenexx Providers can perform Regenexx procedures. Here is the list of all the Regenexx physicians: http://www.regenexx.com/find-a-physician/ If a doctor is not on the list, it’s not a Regenexx procedure so not related to results or procedures you read about here.
