Stem Cells are in all of us and they are responsible for healing injured bone, ligaments, tendons and tissues. As we get older or injured, we sometimes cannot get enough of these cells into the area in need. The Regenexx Procedures help solve that problem by precisely delivering a high concentration of stem cells into the injured area and 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. The video below provides a good overview of the procedure performed on a Regenexx patient with a knee condition.
As a Regenexx Network provider, we utilize a more advanced form of Platelet Rich Plasma, known as Regenexx-SCP. Regenexx-SCP contains concentrated platelets like PRP, but also contains blood circulating stem cells capable of tissue repair. It is created by a technician, rather than a simple bedside centrifuge. The patient procedure is the same as PRP, but far more care goes into ensuring the PRP mixture is as pure and effective as possible. For a more complete overview of why Regenexx-SCP is a superior form of Platelet Rich Plasma when compared to the typical PRP created using a standard bedside centrifuge, click here.
