Regenexx® Stem Cell and Blood Platelet Procedures
Regenexx Stem Cell and Platelet Procedures offer breakthrough, non-surgical treatment options for individuals suffering from joint or bone pain due to degenerative conditions, torn or strained tendons or ligaments or other common joint injuries. Regenexx procedures offer viable alternatives for patients with chronic pain who may be considering surgery.

Regenexx Patient Outcome Data
Regenexx is the only stem cell treatment network to publish this type of analysis of patient stem cell procedure outcome data. The analysis is made possible thanks to the massive numbers that are compiled throughout the years in the Regenexx patient registry, which tracks patient outcomes at regular intervals following all of the stem cell procedures we offer.
Note: This patient outcome data is not part of a controlled trial. Every 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. In addition, none of this data may be reproduced in any way or displayed elsewhere without prior written permission from Regenerative Sciences.
Knee Patient Outcome DataView Knee Patient Outcome Data
This Regenexx-SD (same-day) bone marrow derived stem cell treatment outcome data analysis is part of the Regenexx data download of patients who were tracked in the Regenexx advanced patient registry.
Knee Meniscus Procedure Outcome DataView Knee Meniscus Procedure Outcome Data
This Regenexx-SD (same-day) bone marrow derived stem cell treatment outcome data analysis is part of the Regenexx data download of patients who were tracked in the Regenexx advanced patient registry following treatment for Meniscus Tears.
Knee Function Improvement DataView Knee Function Improvement Data
This data utilizes LEFS (Lower Extremity Functional Scale) data from our knee arthritis patients treated with stem cell injections. Functional questionnaires ask the patients questions such as how well they can walk, run, climb stairs, etc. The improvements following the Regenexx-SD procedure are highly statistically significant.
Hip Patient Outcome DataView Hip Patient Outcome Data
This data looks at patient outcomes for same-day stem cell treatments for hip arthritis.
Shoulder / Rotator Cuff Patient Outcome DataView Shoulder / Rotator Cuff Patient Outcome Data
This outcome information summarizes the patient registry data for shoulders treated with the Regenexx-SD (same-day) procedure using the patient’s own stem cells. It was comprised of a mix of patients with rotator cuff tears, arthritis, labral tears, and instability.
Hand and Wrist Patient Outcome DataView Hand and Wrist Patient Outcome Data
This data was derived from a group of patients with mostly severe thumb arthritis who were injected with their own stem cells. Most of these patients would have been candidates for thumb joint replacement or a surgery where a tendon is coiled up in the joint at the base of the thumb. Both are big surgeries with significant complications.
Foot and Ankle Patient Outcome DataView Foot and Ankle Patient Outcome Data
Most of the foot and ankle patients in this data summary had either moderate or severe main ankle joint arthritis, with many also having either lax ligaments and/or partial tendon tears. A few patients also had sub-talar arthritis. Because this is a smaller data set, all time points were collapsed, such that the last available report was used ( about 17 months post procedure on average).
PL-Disc vs. Steroid Epidural Outcome DataView PL-Disc vs. Steroid Epidural Outcome Data
This data compares two groups of patients who received epidural steroids vs. PL-Disc and looks at their results at 3 month and 6 month intervals using a Functional Rating Index (FRI), which measures things like pain as well as the ability to walk, sit, lift, bend, etc.
Stem Cell Procedure SafetyView Stem Cell Procedure Safety
We have published more data on stem cell safety in peer reviewed medical research for orthopedic applications than any other group world-wide. Our n=339 stem cell safety paper published in 2011 was named the best of it’s class by independent European researchers last year. This is a report of 1,591 patients and 1,949 procedures treated with the Regenexx-SD procedure. Based on our analysis of this treatment registry data, the Regenexx-SD procedure is about as safe as any typical injection procedure, which is consistent with what we see every day in the clinic.
How Regenexx Procedures Work
Stem cells and platelet-derived growth factors are in all of us and they are responsible for healing injured bone, cartilage, ligaments, tendons and other tissues. They are the key components behind the Regenexx Procedures. As we get older or injured, we sometimes cannot get enough of these cells into the area to heal. The Regenexx Procedures help solve this problem by precisely delivering a high concentration of stem cells and platelets into the injured area, aiding your body’s ability to heal naturally. Patients experience very little down time and they typically avoid the long, painful rehabilitation periods that often follow surgery to restore joint strength and mobility.
Regenexx Patented Stem Cell Procedure Overview
The Regenexx Stem Cell Procedure begins when the doctor thoroughly numbs the back of the hip (PSIS) and takes a small bone marrow sample through a needle, as well as a blood draw from a vein in the arm. The marrow is rich in Mesenchymal Stem Cells, which are responsible for healing damaged tissues. The stems cells are isolated from the marrow sample and platelets are isolated from the blood sample. After preparation, these two components will be reinjected directly into the damaged area of the joint using advanced imaging guidance. This ensures the cells are delivered to the exact location of need.
