Regenexx Patient Outcome Data

2013 Regenexx Stem Cell Procedure Patient Outcome Data

As Regenexx Network Physicians, we offer our patients the most advanced stem cell procedures available and we’re part of the only stem cell treatment network to publish this type of analysis of patient outcome data. This is what sets us apart from other regenerative medicine clinics. We are solely focused on treatments for orthopedic conditions and the Regenexx Procedure protocols ensure that our patients benefit from the best possible outcomes.

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.

This same-day stem cell treatment outcome data analysis is part of the fall 2013 data download of patients who were tracked in the Regenexx advanced patient registry.

hip_outcomes2 Hip Patient Outcome Data

This data looks at patient outcomes for same-day stem cell treatments for hip arthritis. The outcome data looks good- especially for those individuals under the age of 55.

shoulder_outcomes Shoulder / Rotator Cuff Patient Outcome Data

This outcome information summarizes the 2013 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. Rotator cuff tear patients are doing the best in this group.

hand_outcomes2 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.

ankle_outcomes2 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).

How Regenexx Procedures Work

Regenexx Overview VideoStem 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-SD (same-day) Procedure Overview

California Stem Cell Clinic - RegenexxThe Regenexx-SD 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.

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.

NBC TV Tells a Patient’s Story Following a Regenexx Same-Day Knee Stem Cell Injection Procedure

Seattle King TV recently featured Regenexx patient Paul Lyon in this news segment. Lyon chose to undergo a Regenexx-SD knee procedure, rather than an invasive and traumatic knee joint replacement surgery. The story looks at his results and includes an interview with Dr. Christopher Centeno, founder of the Regenexx Procedures.
