This Regenexx Patient Review turned up in my inbox this week amid the other 500 or so emails. We love hearing great news about our Regenexx Providers! They are an incredibly select group of incredibly well trained doctors. This patient wanted to share his experience with our Regenexx Provider, Dr. Venkatesh Movva of The Pain and Sports Center in Tulsa Oklahoma.
“Last week I had done my Regenexx SD with Dr. Movva in his Tulsa office and I wanted to send you an email to tell you about how good my experience was with him. Very professional, staff very caring, everything was great! Please make sure you are passing this email to the right people in your company for them to know you have a great Doctor in your Regenexx network. I will highly recommended this Dr. to anyone who is interested in the Regenexx process (I have a bunch of people who are already interested and have injuries, hehehehe…). Thank you very much for your attention and your help” ~ Sergio
This particular patient presented at Dr. Movva’s office with a history of pain in his right knee for over a year which started while training for a marathon. At first he had occasional pain and swelling with activity on the inner side of his knee, but the situation had progressed to the point where it had begun to affect his daily life. He had tried moderation of activity and physical therapy which failed to help, and after much research decided Regenerative Therapy was the way to go. Dr. Movva did a very extensive exam which confirmed a diagnosis of a Complex Medial Meniscus Tear and felt he was a good candidate for a Regenexx-SD treatment. He has completed his treatment and was instructed on how to rehab at home.
The upshot? There are a few important things here. When the patient got the status alert from his body that something was wrong with his knee, he didn’t ignore it. Instead he tried conservative treatment. When that didn’t work he did his research on what was available to actually fix this without the surgery that could only make it worse in the long run. Dr. Movva didn’t glance at his MRI and do a cursory exam, he used all of his many skills to identify the problem, and fix it a way to allow the patient to return to his healthy active way of life. Kudos to Sergio for giving his knee the opportunity to heal itself with his own stem cells…and great job Dr. Movva!
