Regenexx® Stem Cell & Platelet Rich Plasma Procedures are the world’s most advanced regenerative injection treatments for treating arthritis, overuse conditions such as tennis elbow or golfer’s elbow, and other conditions that cause elbow pain.
Commonly Treated Elbow Conditions
This is not a complete list, so please contact us or complete the Regenexx Candidate Form if you have questions about whether you or your condition can be treated with these non-surgical procedures.
- Lateral Epicondylitis – Also known as Tennis Elbow
- Medial Epicondylitis – Also known as Golfer’s Elbow
- Nerve entrapment (ulnar nerve)
Regenexx Procedure Safety Data
The information below applies to our safety data on stem cell procedures. Most elbow conditions are treated with platelet rich plasma, which is a far less complex treatment than our stem cell procedure, which requires a bone marrow draw as part of the process (and also includes a platelet rich plasma post-injection).
Stem Cell Procedure SafetyView Stem Cell Procedure Safety
Regenexx has published more data on stem cell safety in peer reviewed medical research for orthopedic applications than any other group world-wide. This is a report of 1,591 patients and 1,949 procedures treated with the Regenexx Stem Cell Procedure. Based on our analysis of this treatment registry data, the Regenexx Stem Cell Procedure is about as safe as any typical injection procedure, which is consistent with what we see every day in the clinic.
More than 64,710 Regenexx® Procedures have been performed since Regenexx pioneered orthopedic stem cell 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 n of patients published & treated with bone marrow stem cells as of 7/1/2017)
How Regenexx Procedures Work
Stem Cell Treatments
Same Day Stem Cell Protocol
Adult stem cells are cells from your own body that can renew themselves and turn into other cells (differentiate). They live inside all of us in various tissues, poised to leap into action to repair damage as it occurs. As we age or have big injuries, we may not be able to recruit enough of these cells to the site to fully repair the area. Regenexx Stem Cell Procedures help overcome this problem by extracting stem cells from an area of high volume, then concentrating the cells and reinjecting them into the damaged area to help the body heal naturally. Our Patented Stem Cell Procedures can be used for a wide range of conditions and are the tool of choice for injuries, arthritis and other conditions that may be more significant than what may be treated with our Platelet Rich Plasma or Platelet Lysate Procedures.
Blood Platelet Treatments
Advanced Platelet Rich Plasma & Platelet Lysate Procedures
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Platelet Lysate Injection Treatments contain healing growth components from your own blood that increase your body’s natural ability to repair itself. The use of PRP to repair joint, tendon, ligament, and muscle injuries is becoming well known, thanks to exposure from professional athletes. Platelet injection treatments are effective because they have a stimulating effect on the stem cells within the targeted area, making those stem cells work harder to heal damaged tissues. Our Advanced Platelet Procedures are more pure and concentrated than those created by the automated machines used at most regenerative medicine clinics. Platelet procedures are commonly used for soft tissue injuries, mild arthritis and spine conditions.
