The Centeno-Schultz Fellows Show 2018 Edition

If you read this blog, you know that Regenexx HQ in Colorado trains fellows. We also have a very big annual Christmas bash where it’s now a tradition that the fellows have to put on a show. This year’s version didn’t disappoint, and I’d like to share that video but also educate you this morning about our commitment to education.

Our Fellowship Program

Almost a decade ago, we decided to start a fellowship program. This means that we take physicians who are already trained specialists and then train them further in the complex interventional orthopedics procedures we perform using regenerative medicine. These doctors spend a whole year with us, and some decide to spend an additional year or so as an attending physician to continue to learn more. Suffice it to say that these fellows are some of the most highly trained physicians in the world in interventional regenerative orthopedics. In fact, they’re so well trained that physicians pay big bucks to fly these guys and gals all over the world to train them.

Since its inception, we have trained doctors from a bevy of different residency programs, including Emory, Stanford, University of Texas, University of Vermont, University of Alabama, Baylor, and UCLA. Our fellows not only get great clinical experience in a unique area of interventional orthopedics, they also get to participate in publishing our research.

Our Past Fellows:

  • Ben Newton, MD
  • John Pitts, MD
  • Jason Markle, DO
  • Jamil Bashir, MD
  • Matthew Hyzy, DO
  • Christopher Williams, MD
  • Otonio Silva, MD
  • Ugochi Azuike, DO

Finally, as payback to the physicians and staff at our clinic who spend countless hours molding these young physicians, the fellows put on an annual show for us.

The Fellow Show

This tradition began, I believe, with Dr. Pitts. My wife loves being at the clinic and hearing John’s laugh randomly emanating from a patient room, so it was no surprise that John decided that he would do a parody rap at our Christmas party. Click here to hear John’s rap.

One year we had three fellows (two past and one current at that point) put on a show where Pitt’s revisited his amazing rapping skills:

This year’s edition is above. That’s Dr. Cartier from the Air Force, Dr. Lucas from Stanford, and Dr. Fausel from Emory singing “The Chipmunk Song” and busting a move like a boy band.

So I’d like you to vote on these three editions of the Fellow Show, as there are doctor-sized egos here at stake as to who put on the best show! Please vote below:

Which fellow show is the best?

The upshot? We have very talented doctors, in more ways than one. So please vote above so we can settle this for once and for all time as to who put on the best show. I’ll look forward to announcing on Monday in the office who rocked the house the most!

Regenerative procedures are commonly used to treat musculoskelatal trauma, overuse injuries, and degenerative issues, including failed surgeries.
Select Your Problem Area
Shoulder

Shoulder

Many Shoulder and Rotator Cuff injuries are good candidates for regenerative treatments. Before considering shoulder arthroscopy or shoulder replacement, consider an evaluation of your condition with a regenerative treatment specialist.

  • Rotator Cuff Tears and Tendinitis
  • Shoulder Instability
  • SLAP Tear / Labral Tears
  • Shoulder Arthritis
  • Other Degenerative Conditions & Overuse Injuries
Learn More
Cervical Spine

Spine

Many spine injuries and degenerative conditions are good candidates for regenerative treatments and there are a number of studies showing promising results in treating a wide range of spine problems. Spine surgery should be a last resort for anyone, due to the cascade of negative effects it can have on the areas surrounding the surgery. And epidural steroid injections are problematic due to their long-term negative impact on bone density.

  • Herniated, Bulging, Protruding Discs
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • SI Joint Syndrome
  • Sciatica
  • Pinched Nerves and General Back Pain
  • And more

Knee

Knees

Knees are the target of many common sports injuries. Sadly, they are also the target of a number of surgeries that research has frequently shown to be ineffective or minimally effective. Knee arthritis can also be a common cause for aging athletes to abandon the sports and activities they love. Regenerative procedures can be used to treat a wide range of knee injuries and conditions. They can even be used to reduce pain and delay knee replacement for more severe arthritis.

  • Knee Meniscus Tears
  • Knee ACL Tears
  • Knee Instability
  • Knee Osteoarthritis
  • Other Knee Ligaments / Tendons & Overuse Injuries
  • And more

Lower Spine

Spine

Many spine injuries and degenerative conditions are good candidates for regenerative treatments and there are a number of studies showing promising results in treating a wide range of spine problems. Spine surgery should be a last resort for anyone, due to the cascade of negative effects it can have on the areas surrounding the surgery. And epidural steroid injections are problematic due to their long-term negative impact on bone density.

  • Herniated, Bulging, Protruding Discs
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • SI Joint Syndrome
  • Sciatica
  • Pinched Nerves and General Back Pain

Hand & Wrist

Hand & Wrist

Hand and wrist injuries and arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and conditions relating to overuse of the thumb, are good candidates for regenerative treatments. Before considering surgery, consider an evaluation of your condition with a regenerative treatment specialist.
  • Hand and Wrist Arthritis
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Trigger Finger
  • Thumb Arthritis (Basal Joint, CMC, Gamer’s Thumb, Texting Thumb)
  • Other conditions that cause pain

Elbow

Elbow

Most injuries of the elbow’s tendons and ligaments, as well as arthritis, can be treated non-surgically with regenerative procedures.

  • Golfer’s elbow & Tennis elbow
  • Arthritis
  • Ulnar collateral ligament wear (common in baseball pitchers)
  • And more

Hip

Hip

Hip injuries and degenerative conditions become more common with age. Do to the nature of the joint, it’s not quite as easy to injure as a knee, but it can take a beating and pain often develops over time. Whether a hip condition is acute or degenerative, regenerative procedures can help reduce pain and may help heal injured tissue, without the complications of invasive surgical hip procedures.

  • Labral Tear
  • Hip Arthritis
  • Hip Bursitis
  • Hip Sprain, Tendonitis or Inflammation
  • Hip Instability
Learn More
Foot & Ankle

Foot & Ankle

Foot and ankle injuries are common in athletes. These injuries can often benefit from non-surgical regenerative treatments. Before considering surgery, consider an evaluation of your condition with a regenerative treatment specialist.
  • Ankle Arthritis
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Ligament sprains or tears
  • Other conditions that cause pain
