Regenexx® Stem Cell and Platelet Procedures Treat Knee Conditions, Including Tendon and Ligament Tears, Knee Arthritis, Meniscus Tears, Overuse Injuries and Other Issues
Regenexx® Stem Cell & Platelet Rich Plasma Procedures are breakthrough, non-surgical stem-cell treatments for people suffering from knee pain due to common injuries to the knee meniscus, ACL or MCL, cartilage, or who are experiencing degenerative conditions, such as osteoarthritis.
In the past, people who had certain knee injuries or conditions – from torn ACLs to damaged cartilage to osteoarthritis – had to undergo invasive surgeries, like arthroscopic knee surgery or total knee joint replacement, to restore their freedom of movement and relieve their pain. Regenexx patented Stem Cell and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Procedures are viable alternatives without all the risks associated with surgical procedures.
Plus, knee surgery entails a lengthy rehabilitation afterward. In contrast, the Regenexx same-day procedure can bring similar results while avoiding the complications of surgical procedures.
Knee Patient Outcome Data
This infographic shows data on patients who received the Regenexx bone marrow-derived stem cell treatment.
Outcome Data for Knee Meniscus Procedures
The data on this infographic comes from the Regenexx advanced patient registry and focuses on those patients who were treated for meniscus tears with the Regenexx bone marrow-derived stem cell procedure.
Data on Knee Function Improvement
Based on the LEFS (lower extremity functional scale), the data in this infographic looks at our knee arthritis patients who received stem cell injections. Patients were asked about their functional abilities post-procedure, especially related to daily tasks like walking, climbing stairs and running. The results of the Regenexx Stem Cell Procedure are shown to be of high statistical significance.
Safety of Stem Cell Procedures
Regenexx has released more orthopedic-related stem cell safety data in peer-reviewed medical publications than any single group throughout the world. The report shown here reviewed 1,591 patients who received 1,949 Regenexx Stem Cell Procedures. The data indicates that our procedure is on par regarding safety with other typical injection procedures. This mirrors what our patients experience in our clinics on a daily basis.

A Less Invasive Solution
Knee problems often lead to surgery, whether a total knee joint replacement or arthroscopic knee surgery. Regardless of the procedure, the patient will have to endure months of difficult and painful rehabilitation to return to his or her previous levels of strength and range of motion.
In addition, studies indicate that meniscus surgery and other common arthroscopic surgeries do not provide the desired outcomes. Total knee replacement surgery yields big risks, such as releasing toxic particles into the bloodstream and is a distressing procedure. The majority of surgeries speed up the degeneration process that ultimately brings about osteoarthritis.
We are aware that surgery sometimes is the only solution for extreme cases. That being said, we have achieved astounding results with our stem cell procedure on challenging problems, including complete tears of the ligaments and muscles. We have also given thousands of patients who have severe arthritis their mobility back – without pain or knee replacement surgery.
Most of our patients are back to their normal activities in a short amount of time after their procedures.
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.
Common Knee Conditions
Knee replacement surgery comes with many serious risks and complications, but is often considered to be a straightforward and accepted approach to treatment for those suffering from significant arthritis or injury in this joint.

Meniscus tears are one of the most common injuries we treat. The last option anyone should consider for treating a meniscus injury is the surgical removal of all or some of this important structure. Click below to learn why Regenexx is likely a better choice than meniscus surgery.
Knee ACL tears are a very common injury. The rush to surgery has long been due to the traditional thinking that an ACL will not heal. Our experience treating ACL tears with the Regenexx patented stem cell treatment has shown that it may be a better option for those who have experienced a partial or complete non-retracted ACL tear.
