Orthopaedic medicine is a specialty devoted to the evaluation, diagnosis, and non-operative treatment for pain caused by musculoskeletal diseases to aid in pain management. Diagnostic modalities include a comprehensive history, a detailed and specific physical examination, radiologic evaluations and local anesthetic blocks for pain treatment. Therapeutic modalities for pain management encompass manipulations, corticosteroid or proliferant injections with and without fluoroscopic guidance, therapeutic exercise and use of pharmaceutical, nutriceutical, herbal and/or homeopathic based pain treatment. In addition, one challenge for collecting bone marrow stem cells is that the area at the back of the hip where they are harvested has some pitfalls. If the doctor performs this type of collection without imaging guidance (blind without using either fluoroscopy or ultrasound), the chance of taking cells from the wrong area goes up dramatically. In this area of the back of the hip, there is a paper thin part of the pelvis that if tapped by the doctor, will almost always result in a blood collection only, rather than a bone marrow aspirate. Precision is the key to a Regenexx physician’s ability to maximize stem cells during the harvesting procedure. Regenexx Procedures are patented stem cell therapy and blood platelet procedures that are used to treat a wide range of joint and spine conditions. More than 70,460 Regenexx Procedures have been performed since Regenexx pioneered orthopedic stem cell therapy treatments in 2005. Regenexx Procedures are the most advanced orthopedic stem cell procedures in the world. The published research on Regenexx procedures accounts for approx. 50% of the world’s orthopedic stem cell literature (cumulative number of patients published & treated with bone marrow stem cells as of 7/1/2017) The Regenexx family of non-surgical stem-cell & blood platelet procedures are next generation regenerative injection treatments for those who are suffering from shoulder pain due to arthritis, rotator cuff and shoulder labrum tears, overuse injuries, and other degenerative conditions. Regenexx is also a viable alternative for those considering shoulder replacement surgery. Regenexx Procedures are advanced stem cell and blood platelet procedures for foot and ankle conditions. Before you consider ankle surgery, fusion or replacement, consider the world’s leading stem cell and PRP injection treatments. Regenexx has many non-surgical platelet and stem cell based procedures developed to help patients avoid spine surgery and high dose epidural steroid side effects. These procedures utilize the patient’s own natural growth factors or stem cells to treat bulging or herniated discs, degenerative conditions in the spine, and other back and neck conditions that cause pain.
