Todd Avoids Second Hip Replacement Surgery for Hip Arthritis

  • Patient’s Name: Todd B.
  • Age/Age Group: 48

  • Condition/Injury: hip arthritis
  • Top concern: hip pain
  • Treatment: Regenexx-SCP, a nonsurgical blood platelet treatment
  • Doctor: Michael Jackson, MD, Regenexx DesMoines

Todd, a 48-year-old IT director, was diagnosed with hip arthritis in 2011. In 2012 he had his right hip replaced. When he began to experience shooting pain down his left leg, he considered having the other hip replaced.

But at a company meeting, he heard from Michael Jackson, MD, about Regenexx. He was skeptical, but he had the Regenexx-SCP procedure done in March 2015, as the downtime would be significantly less than surgery.

“After the three-month appointment, I started going back to some regular activities like running and more of my typical day-to-day,” he says. “From that point on, I’ve noticed a lot of improvement. Now I’m able to continue to do the things I love to do and not have the pain to go along with that. I feel like I’m 80% better than before.”
