Regenexx® Stem Cell Procedures Improve Hand and Basal Joint Arthritis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Other Conditions
Patients with hand injuries and conditions, such as basal joint or carpometacarpal arthritis, may find relief from their pain and an increased range of motion with the help of the Regenexx family of non-surgical stem-cell and blood platelet procedures. These procedures are the world’s most advanced regenerative injection treatments.
Outcome Data for Hand and Wrist Patients
The majority of the data contained in the infographic came from patients who had severe thumb arthritis and were treated with their own injected stem cells rather than more complex thumb joint replacement surgery or a surgery that coils a tendon in the thumb’s basal joint.

Non-surgical Alternative for Treatment of Thumb Basal Joint / CMC Arthritis
Targeted Procedure Thumb Basal Joint / CMC Arthritis
Unlike some arthritic conditions, thumb carpometacarpal (CMC) arthritis/basal joint arthritis or hand joint arthritis may show up at a young age. One of the main causes of these conditions is the perpetual use of the basal joint, which can overtax the tendons. Joint reconstruction can resolve the issue for some patients but also bring new complications, like tenderness, numbness and decreased range of motion.
Effective alternatives to reconstructive surgery, Regenexx Procedures help your body to repair itself by injecting your own stem cells, blood platelets and/or growth factors into the affected joint.
Why Regenexx Procedures Are Effective
Stem Cell Treatments
Same-Day Stem Cell Procedures
What are stem cells? They’re cells from your body that not only renew themselves but also can convert themselves into other cells. This process is known as differentiation. Stem cells can be found in a variety of tissues, and our bodies use them to repair injured areas. When we get older or suffer traumas or major injuries, stem cells may not be as readily available to help us heal the damaged tissues. Our patented Same-Day Stem Cell Procedures resolve this issue by taking stem cells from an area of the body where they are abundant, concentrating these cells and reinjecting them into the injured area so that they can stimulate healing.
These procedures work well on a variety of conditions, including arthritis, injuries, and other issues that are too severe to respond to our platelet rich plasma or platelet lysate treatments.
Blood Platelet Treatments
Super Concentrated Platelet Rich Plasma and Advanced Platelet Lysate Procedures
Regenexx offers two platelet injection procedures – Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Platelet Lysate Treatments – that enhance your body’s natural healing process by adding healing growth components from your own blood to your injured areas. PRP, in particular, is effective in repairing muscle, ligament, tendon, and joint injuries. The platelet injection treatments work with your stem cells, encouraging and supporting their efforts to heal damaged tissues, especially those related to spine conditions, arthritis and soft tissue injuries. Our advanced platelet procedures are superior to the ones provided at most regenerative medicine clinics because our machines yield purer and more concentrated platelet samples.
