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.

This highly specialized, precise, image-guided Regenexx procedure performed only by very specially trained Regenexx physicians for CMC arthritis and other injuries and conditions in the hand and wrist utilizes concentrated repair cells that are obtained from your own bone marrow or blood to promote your body’s own natural ability to heal.

Why Regenexx Procedures Are Effective

Regenexx-SD

Bone Marrow Concentrate

Regenexx-SD is bone marrow concentrate that contains stem cells, which exist inside all of us in various tissues, ready to repair damage when it happens. As we get older or suffer serious injuries, our bodies may not be able to recruit enough of these cells to the site to repair the damaged area completely. The Regenexx-SD procedure helps remedy this issue by extracting bone marrow from an area of the back of the hip that has a dense population of these important cells and then concentrating those cells prior to injecting them into the injured area using advanced imaging guidance. The aims of the procedure are to reduce pain and improve function by promoting the body's own ability to repair itself naturally. This patented bone marrow concentrate protocol can treat a wide range of orthopedic conditions. Your Regenexx doctor will evaluate your condition and your imaging to conclude whether a bone marrow concentrate or platelet-based treatment is the best option for your orthopedic condition.

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.
