Your body is full of living cells, some that act as repairmen of the body. However, as we age or get injuries, we sometimes can’t get enough of these critical repair cells to the injured area. Regenexx procedures work without surgery by increasing the concentration of your body’s own healing agents to stimulate the natural healing response in your injured or degenerative area.
Our patients benefit from less downtime, less pain and faster recovery than invasive surgical procedures. Many of today’s most common surgeries have been shown to be ineffective and can begin a cascade of joint degeneration that leads to early-onset arthritis. Sometimes at an alarming rate. Regenexx seeks to repair and restore damaged tissues, rather than removing them, which is often the case in surgeries that claim to “clean-up” a joint.

Dr. Dwayne Patterson is a Board-Certified specialist in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and has practiced non-surgical musculoskeletal medicine for more than 20 years. He is dedicated to improving his patients’ quality of life by identifying the underlying biomechanical or structural problem and helping each individual patient choose the best solution to treat the problem and prevent recurrence or further injury.
Born and raised in a small town in southwestern Virginia, Dr. Patterson received both undergraduate (BA Biology 1985) and graduate (Medical Doctor 1989) degrees from the University of Virginia. Upon graduation he entered active duty in the US Army and completed an internship in Colorado. He served as a General Medical Officer providing primary care to a large military community of soldiers and their families at a clinic in Karlsruhe, Germany for two years. He completed residency training in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington DC. During his time at Walter Reed he won the Resident Research Award and was promoted to the rank of Major. After his military service, he moved to Raleigh and joined a local orthopedic group in 1997. His practice focused on non-surgical treatment of orthopedic problems and included injection therapy and rehabilitation of spine and sports injuries.
After many years of using traditional treatments for orthopedic conditions, Dr. Patterson’s desire to broaden his skill set and find more advanced treatment tools to help heal the body led him to Regenexx and the Interventional Orthopedics Foundation. He has completed extensive training in advanced interventional injection techniques for the spine, muscles, and peripheral joints using the patient’s own stem cells or blood platelets at the Regenexx Centeno-Schultz Clinic and is certified by the Interventional Orthopedics Foundation. Through these techniques Dr. Patterson is able to reduce pain, increase function and prevent unnecessary surgeries.
Founder and Medical Director of Interventional Orthopedics of Raleigh, Dr. Patterson is excited to bring evidence-based regenerative medicine to North Carolina as the first Regenexx certified provider in the state. He is a fellow of the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and a member of the Interventional Orthopedics Foundation. An avid cyclist and runner, Dr. Patterson understands the desire to keep moving in spite of pain or injury and get back to doing what you love.
