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!
