Regenexx® Procedures for Rotator Cuff Tears, Shoulder Arthritis, and Other Shoulder Conditions.

Regenexx® procedures are non-surgical injection-based procedures for people suffering from shoulder pain due to common injuries to the shoulder and rotator cuff, Shoulder Labrum, as well as degenerative conditions, such as shoulder osteoarthritis. These procedures utilize concentrated repair cells that are obtained from your own bone marrow or blood to promote your body’s own natural ability to heal.

Traditional options for patients suffering from these conditions include arthroscopic shoulder surgery to repair tears, or shoulder joint replacement. With both surgeries, months of rehab are required, and the patient must be aware of and prepared to take on the risks. Regenexx procedures are designed to help reduce pain and improve function with precise highly specific image-guided medical procedures to promote the body’s ability to heal itself naturally.

Regenexx Procedures for Rotator Cuff Tears

Using the healing agents from your own body to treat rotator cuff tears, shoulder arthritis, and other common shoulder conditions, Regenexx provides an alternative to invasive surgeries like rotator cuff tear surgery, shoulder labrum surgery, acromioplasty, and shoulder replacement.

Highly specific, precise, image-guided injections of your own cells and growth factors directly into the injured area promotes your own body’s natural ability to repair. By both mobilizing your body’s own healing mechanisms and eliminating the trauma of surgery and atrophy caused by immobilization, Regenexx has produced good outcomes in the treatment of rotator cuff tears, and other common shoulder injuries and degenerative conditions like shoulder arthritis.

We have already published a mid-term report on our randomized control trial to treat rotator cuff tears and the final analysis will be published soon.

How Regenexx Procedures Work

Regenexx Procedures for Shoulder & Rotator Cuff Injuries and Arthritis

Regenexx-SD

Bone Marrow Concentrate

Regenexx-SD is Bone Marrow Concentrate, which contains stem cells. These repair cells from your own body 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. The Regenexx-SD Procedure helps overcome this problem by harvesting Bone Marrow from an area of the back of the hip that contains a dense population of these important cells and then concentrating those cells before precisely injecting them into the injured area using advanced imaging guidance. The goal of the procedure is to reduce pain and improve function by promoting the body's own ability to heal naturally. This Patented Bone Marrow Concentrate Protocol can be used for a wide range of orthopedic conditions. Your Regenexx doctor will evaluate your condition and your imaging to determine whether a bone marrow concentrate or platelet-based treatment is the best option for your orthopedic condition.

Regenexx SCP

Super Concentrated Platelet Rich Plasma & Platelet Lysate Procedures

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Platelet Lysate are Platelet procedures that contain healing growth factors from your own blood that promote your body’s natural ability to repair itself. The use of PRP to treat joint, tendon, ligament, and muscle injuries is becoming well known, thanks to exposure from professional athletes. Platelet injections have a stimulating effect on the repair cells within the targeted area, making those cells work harder to perform their natural job of healing the body. Like all Regenexx procedures, Regenexx SCP procedures are performed with high-level imaging guidance to ensure the most accurate placements of cells into the desired area. Our Advanced Platelet Procedures are more concentrated and purer than PRP created by the automated machines used at most regenerative medicine clinics, increasing its ability to stimulate the body's natural healing response. Platelet procedures are commonly used for soft tissue injuries, mild arthritis, spine conditions, and around nerves.
