Update on a Stem Cell Treatment for Severe Traumatic Ankle Arthritis

By /

ankle arthritis stem cell

CB was a 39 year old woman seen last summer with a three year history of ankle pain that was getting worse. When her pain was at it’s worst, it was a 7/10. This all began in 2008 when she was in a potentially catastrophic car crash where she sustained a tib-fib fracture that required immediate surgery. A second surgery was performed 6 days later and finally a third surgery, all to stabilize these compound ankle fractures. Her results with a Regenexx-SD stem cell injection procedure to treat her ankle arthritis were featured on the blog in the spring and can not be expected by all ankle arthritis stem cell Regenexx-SD patients.  Here’s her update at 1 year out:

“Hi Dr. Hanson! I received a Regenexx survey this week due to it being a year since my Regenexx procedure. I completed and submited. I’m doing GREAT!!! I’m now jogging and I walk 5 miles daily;-). Before regenexx I was lucky to walk a half of a mile without having severe pain and on some cold and rainy days I was not even able to hardly walk in my home due to my level of pain. Everyday, I’m thankful for my quality of life. Sometimes when I finish a long hike of 7 miles I have mild pain but within 24 hours all pain is gone. I suffered a lot of pain in my ankle between 2008 and 2011 following the automobile accident and I don’t regret it because of all the pain I suffered makes me a more grateful person and more appreciative of the quality of life that I now have. You and Dr. Schultz and Regenexx have given me a better quality of life and I’m so very thankful on a daily basis. Also, I  appreciated your COMPASSION which is rare these days. I think you are so GREAT!! I hope you and your family are doing wonderful!”

Looks like she’s still doing well!

NOTE:  Regenexx-SD is a medical procedure and like all medical procedures has a success and failure rate.  Not all Regenexx-SD ankle patients can expect this type of result.
