Regenexx-SD Ankle Arthritis Testimonial

By /

HB is a 69 year old farmer with moderate loss of cartilage in his ankle (ankle arthritis) who had few options other than an ankle replacement surgery or a triple arthrodesis (ankle fusion surgery). However, he is self employed and the idea of taking that much time off from work on crutches didn’t fit his active lifestyle. Instead, he opted for the re-injection of his own stem cells using a same day procedure. Stem cells were taken from the back of his hip, processed in our clinic lab, and re-injected back into the ankle under x-ray and ultrasound guidance. He is now a few months out from that injection. He reports 100% relief of the pain and here are his words as of this morning:

“I want to thank you for making my ankle pain free with the first injection. I received the first injection the end of August and by the end of September and all of October my ankle has been pain free. I have been able to climb up and down our tractors, combine, and trucks, harvest our Milo crop, swath our hay, make over 400 round bales (6′ tall x 5′ wide) and then load and haul the hay our of the field, which has required my left foot to push on clutches for thousands of times, beside walking and climbing up and down the equipment.”
