Regenexx® Stem Cell and Platelet Therapies Treat Elbow Injuries, Arthritis and Overuse Conditions
The most advanced regenerative injection treatments in the world for elbow pain, arthritis and overuse conditions such as golfer’s elbow and tennis elbow, Regenexx Stem Cell and Platelet Rich Plasma Procedures are highly effective, non-surgical alternatives.
Patients who suffer from elbow pain benefit from Regenexx Procedures, per several recent studies. Our platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapies, in particular, have been shown to improve elbow ligament and tendon issues better than most surgical procedures. Surgery would be a last-resort option for any conditions save the most extreme elbow injuries.
The following list represents the most common elbow conditions that can be treated with Regenexx Procedures. If your condition is not listed below, contact us or fill out the Regenexx Candidate Form with any concerns or questions regarding your viability as a patient.
- Nerve Entrapment (Ulnar Nerve)
- Lateral Epicondylitis – Also known as Tennis Elbow
- Medial Epicondylitis – Also known as Golfer’s Elbow
Safety Data about the Regenexx Stem Cell Procedure
The facts on this infographic relate to our safety data regarding stem cell procedures. Keep in mind that the majority of elbow conditions can be treated with our platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapies. These are much less involved than our stem cell procedure, as that treatment entails a bone marrow draw, as well as a platelet rich plasma post-injection.
The Safety of the Stem Cell Procedure
Regenexx’s research on orthopedic stem cell safety has been made available for peer-reviewed medical research publications more than that of any other group throughout the world. This infographic is based on a study of 1,591 patients who received 1,949 Regenexx Stem Cell Procedures. We concluded, after analyzing the treatment registry data, that our stem cell procedure is comparable in safety with any typical injection procedure. These results mirror what we experience in our clinics on a daily basis.
SINCE PIONEERING ORTHOPEDIC STEM CELL TREATMENTS IN 2005, REGENEXX HAS PERFORMED MORE THAN 123,550 OF THESE PROCEDURES, WHICH ARE THE MOST ADVANCED OF THEIR KIND WORLDWIDE.
APPROXIMATELY 44% OF THE WORLD’S PUBLISHED KNOWLEDGE OF ORTHOPEDIC STEM CELL RESEARCH IS BASED ON REGENEXX PROCEDURES. THIS PERCENTAGE RELATES TO THE TOTAL NUMBER OF PATIENTS WHO WERE TREATED WITH BONE MARROW STEM CELLS AND WHOSE RESULTS WERE PUBLISHED AS OF 1/1/2019.
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.
