Avoid Surgery with Regenexx
Have you been told that steroid injections or invasive surgery are your only options to treat your injury or pain? Interventional Orthopedics provides a non-surgical alternative that uses your own cells to repair the damage.
Current surgical treatment options for common orthopedic injuries and arthritis include pain-management strategies, steroid injections, and ultimately surgical interventions. While all of these approaches may offer temporary relief of symptoms, they are ultimately destructive and over time often do as much harm as good.
At Regenexx we invented a new approach to orthopedic care we call Interventional Orthopedics. This approach involves the use of image guidance(flouroscopy and ultrasound) to precisely place high-dose stem cells or plateletsfrom your body directly where they are needed in a specific joint structure. These cells then work in the site of your injury to grow into new, healthy tissue, a process that will only occur if the cells have been placed exactly where they need to go in order to achieve positive outcomes for the patient. This precise approach to orthopedic care can’t be replicated by a surgeon or nurse in a chiropractor’s office. Interventional Orthopedics requires thousands of hours of training following a standardized protocol process to become a licensed Regenexx physician.
Regenexx stem-cell and platelet-rich plasma procedures are the world’s most advanced regenerative injection treatments. Before you consider orthopedic surgery, learn about the world’s leading stem-cell and platelet-injection treatments.
Regenexx patients are typically encouraged to walk the same day while most experience little to no down time, little to no need for opioid pain medication, and minimal to no time off work.
Your body is typically able to repair fractures over time after the bone has been set and secured in place. A non-union fracture occurs when the bone is not healing on its own because your body’s natural healing agents are not strong enough to affect healing of the bone. In such cases, an invasive surgical intervention is often recommended to remove damaged tissue and immobilize the site with screws or plates.
During this outpatient procedure, our expert physicians use precise image guidance to inject custom concentrations of your body’s natural healing agents into the precise areas of damage to promote and support healing without surgery.

Osteonecrosis / Avascular Necrosis
Avoid Joint Replacement Surgery with Regenexx
Avascular necrosis (AVN) or Osteonecrosis is death of bone tissue that occurs when healthy stem cells in a bone die off, become sick, or are too few in number to keep up with normal wear and tear. The single most common cause of osteonecrosis is use of oral steroids like Prednisone that in high doses stunt your body’s natural healing ability. While oral steroids can reduce swelling, they are frequently given in such high doses that they can cause cells that help to maintain your bone to actually die off or become stunned.
Risky pain-management strategies and harmful steroid injections can temporarily manage pain, but if AVN occurs in your body, ultimately invasive joint replacement is highly likely. Regenexx has been treating AVN with precise injections of stem cells longer than anyone else in the U.S. and has good results treating certain lesions and stopping the progression of the AVN.
During this outpatient procedure, our expert physicians use precise image guidance to inject custom concentrations of your body’s natural healing mechanisms into the exact areas of damage to provide the support needed to prevent further damage.

Avoid Neck and Jaw Surgery with Regenexx
Disorders of the TMJ caused by car accidents, muscular imbalance, braces, or other dental work are particularly challenging and often treatment options are no better than at-home remedies. Common treatment ranges from electric nerve stimulation to trigger point injections and acupuncture, but these methods treat the symptoms and not the underlying problem. Jaw surgery and jaw replacement can result in lengthy rehab, immobility, and further jaw or nerve damage. Regenexx invented a non-surgical procedure that uses your body’s natural healing agents to treat TMJ pain and dysfunction.
