Non-Surgical Stem Cell and Platelet Treatments for Hip Arthritis, Avascular Necrosis and Common Hip Injuries
Regenexx™ Stem Cell and Blood Platelet Procedures offer the most advanced, non-surgical treatments available for individuals with common hip injuries, hip arthritis, avascular necrosis and other hip problems. In many cases, Regenexx is a viable treatment alternative for individuals who may be considering elective hip surgery or hip replacement surgery.
Due to the nature of the hip and its associated nerves, reasons for hip pain are widely misdiagnosed and hip surgery is frequently presented to patients as the only option to resolve their pain. In cases where hip surgery may be warranted, it is up to the patient to understand the risks and determine if it is the best course of action for them. As a non-surgical alternative, Regenexx hip procedure patients have experienced excellent results in complex hip injuries and advanced degenerative hip conditions, such as osteoarthritis and avascular necrosis.
Hip surgery is traumatic and may require months of painful rehabilitation to regain strength and motion. Alternatively, Regenexx procedures may help heal and alleviate hip problems with a same-day stem cell or platelet injection procedure. Regenexx patients benefit from little or no downtime from the procedure and avoid the wide range of problems that often follow more invasive surgeries.
Commonly Treated Hip Conditions Using Stem Cell or Platelet Procedures
The list below is not a complete list of injuries or conditions that can be treated. These are the most common hip-related conditions we treat:
- Avascular Necrosis
- Labral / labrum tear
2013 Regenexx Hip Patient Outcome Data
As Regenexx Network Physicians, we’re part of the only stem cell treatment network to publish this type of analysis of patient outcome data. The analysis is made possible thanks to the massive numbers that have been accumulating for years in the Regenexx patient registry.
This patient outcome data is not part of a controlled trial. Every Regenexx Procedure patient becomes part of a registry to track outcomes and any complications. This data is a compilation of patient input to the Regenexx Patient Registry at regular intervals following their Regenexx Procedure.
Hip Damage and the Regenexx-SD (Same-Day) Procedure
Stem Cells are in each of us and they are responsible for healing injured bone, ligaments, tendons and tissues. Stem cells, blood platelets and growth factors are the key components of Regenexx Procedures. As we age or are injured, we sometimes can’t get enough of these cells into the damaged area. Regenexx Procedures help solve this problem by precisely delivering a high concentration of stem cells and growth factors into the injured area, aiding your body’s ability to heal naturally. Regenexx patients experience little or no down-time from the procedure and typically avoid the long, painful rehabilitation periods to restore joint strength and mobility following invasive surgeries.
Regenexx Procedures were recently featured on “The Doctors” TV show. The episode featured Dr. Christopher J. Centeno and Dr. Ron Hanson from the Centeno-Schultz Clinic in Colorado, along with patient Barbee James, who sought stem cell treatment following traditional knee surgery. The 6 minute video provides a nice overview of the Regenexx-SD (Same Day) Stem Cell procedure, which is offered at both of our Health Link Medical Center offices in Oceanside and Mill Valley, California.
Seattle King TV recently featured Regenexx patient Paul Lyon in this news segment. Lyon chose to undergo a Regenexx-SD procedure, rather than an invasive and traumatic joint replacement surgery. The story looks at his results and includes an interview with Dr. Christopher Centeno, founder of the Regenexx Procedures.
