Welcome to RegenOrtho.com and the new field of Regenerative Orthopedics. Using this exciting NON-SURGICAL technology we can rebuild and regenerate almost any joint in the body with small precise injections of the body’s own stem cells and PRP. The stem cells are harvested from your own abdominal fat with a simple office procedure and the Platelet-Rich-Plasma is spun down from a standard blood draw.
At the Center for Regenerative Orthopedics we have been pioneering regenerative orthopedic approaches for over a dozen years and have an 80% success rate with many Orthopedic conditions and sports injuries including knee and hip arthritis (even if it’s bone-on-bone), back and neck disc problems, rotator cuff, ankle, foot, elbow and wrist issues as well as many other conditions.
For optimal results with regenerating joints it is most important that you find the an experienced regenerative orthopedic specialist who will be able to properly diagnose precisely where the damage is located and inject the proper structures with safety and precision. In Regenerative Orthopedics, by far the most important diagnostic modality is a detailed palpation exam of the affected region to see which specific structures elicit the so-called "Jump sign" and reproduce the pain symptoms when palpated. Unfortunately, diagnostic imaging is of limited value. X-rays don’t really evaluate connective tissue integrity and MRI often misses the subtle ligament, joint capsule and tendon damage (sprains and strains) that so often are the root-cause of problems.
For most cases I recommend starting with PRP injections. Platelet-rich-plasma, spun down from your own blood, is the strongest natural stimulus to healing there is. In many cases PRP itself may solve the issue, however people with more severe degenerative conditions or injuries may require actual stem cells (harvested from your abdominal fat with a simple office procedure) along with PRP. In my opinion, stem cells-PRP, properly prepared and injected, represents the strongest non-surgical stimulus to musculo-skeletal healing available today.
