Two year Anniversary for Low Back Stem Cells

By /

low back stem cells

JS is a patient we treated two years ago with the Regenexx-C procedure which involved injecting his own cultured stem cells into his bulging low back disc. Before we tried this, he was being treated several times a year with epidural injections, which gave him some relief, but this was more of a stop gap measure to manage his disc bulge rather than a fix. After his stem cell injection, the patient had great results as shown on his MRI, with a dramatic reduction in his low back disc bulge size. I got this unsolicited text on Friday, as a great low back stem cells update so I thought I’d share it:

Dr. Centeno, it is [JS].  Sorry to invade your space, but today is the 2 year anniversary of the last procedure I had.  I want tell you that my life is a different life. I live today free of pain killers, & only need to medicate rarely. You have truly changed my entire family’s lives.  I live a normal life that j never thought I would see. My family thanks you for continuing to push that envelope & never giving up. Thanks to you & your entire wonderful team.

While we can’t fix everyone with a low back disc bulge and our procedure isn’t magic in that it has a success and failure rate, it’s messages like this from patients that make us doctors smile.
