Regenexx To Offer Its Non-surgical Procedures to NBA China

We’ve helped a ton of athletes avoid more invasive orthopedic surgery by using their own platelets or stem cells and our highly specific image-guided procedures. Given that Regenexx is opening its second worldwide advanced practice site in Hainan, China soon, it’s also lined up to provide its procedures to the NBA China. Let’s dig in.

Regenexx and Athletes

Throughout our provider network, we’ve treated many elite college and professional athletes. They all want the same thing. Avoid season or career-ending surgery through our ability to place their stem cells or platelets into their damaged tissue with advanced interventional orthobiologics. Here’s a walkthrough from 5 years ago of the athletes on our wall of fame in our Colorado HQ site:

Our Advanced Culture Sites

We’ve had a licensed stem cell culture site in Grand Cayman for many years where the patient’s cells can be grown in the lab to larger numbers and then stored for future use. Our Hainan, China Regenexx site will be our second such advanced practice location. Hainan is China’s Hawaii, with an active surf scene and beautiful sandy beaches and lots of resorts.

NBA China

The NBA is a global business that has four regions. The first and largest is North America, and the second is Europe Middle East and Africa (EMEA), then Greater China, and finally the rest of Asia. The NBA China is the division that covers the regions of China, including Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Macau.

Enhance, Regenexx, and NBA China

From the press release this past week:

“EIMC’s (Enhance Biomedical)=’s Hainan Medical Center) services include: sports-related Preventive Medicine, Medical Treatment, Rehabilitation, Pain Management, Sports Psychology, and Nutrition Guidance. In terms of supporting athletes, EIMC’s goal is to provide the proper guidance to allow athletes to reach their full potential and perform at their best. EIMC introduces Regenexx®, the largest U.S. network of specialty-trained physicians in proprietary regenerative orthopedic medicine, which treats orthopedic injuries and degenerative joint problems through minimally invasive research-driven orthobiologic protocols, allowing players to be treated to help reduce pain and improve function after an injury, and return to sports quickly.”

The upshot? We look forward to working with Enhance and the NBA China to help athletes avoid invasive surgery and get back on the court faster!
