Regenexx® Offers the Broadest Array of Non-Surgical, Advanced Stem Cell & Platelet Procedures for Spine and Cervical Conditions.

Regenexx® has a range of procedures developed to help patients avoid spine surgery and the side effects of epidural steroid injections. These procedures utilize the patient’s own natural growth factors or stem cells to treat bulging or herniated discs, degenerative conditions in the spine, and other back and neck conditions that cause pain.

The origin of spine pain is often misidentified. Our decade of experience in regenerative treatments for spine pain allows us to address as many factors as possible to gain insight into the true cause of the problem. We identify the most probable sources of pain and select the most appropriate treatment options available. Only then can the natural healing process be initiated using the safest, least invasive procedure possible.

Stem Cell Procedure Safety

Regenexx has published more data on stem cell safety in peer reviewed medical research for orthopedic applications than any other group world-wide. This is a report of 1,591 patients and 1,949 procedures treated with the Regenexx Stem Cell Procedure. Based on our analysis of this treatment registry data, the Regenexx Stem Cell Procedure is about as safe as any typical injection procedure, which is consistent with what we see every day in the clinic.

How it works

Blood Platelet Treatments

Super-Concentrated Platelet-Rich Plasma & Advanced Platelet Lysate Procedures

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) and Platelet Lysate Injection Treatments contain healing growth components from your own blood that increase your body’s natural ability to repair itself. Platelet injection treatments are effective because they have a stimulating effect on the stem cells within the targeted area, making those stem cells work harder to heal damaged tissues.

Our Advanced Platelet Procedures are more pure and concentrated than those created by the automated machines used at most regenerative medicine clinics. Platelet procedures are commonly used for soft tissue injuries, mild arthritis and spine conditions.

Stem Cell Treatment

Same-Day Stem Cell Protocol

Adult stem cells are cells from your own body that can renew themselves and turn into other cells. They live inside all of us in various tissues, poised to leap into action to repair damage as it occurs. As we age or have big injuries, we may not be able to recruit enough of these cells to the site to fully repair the area. Our Stem Cell Procedures help overcome this problem by extracting stem cells from an area of high volume, then concentrating the cells and reinjecting them into the damaged area to help the body heal naturally.

Our Stem Cell Procedures can be used for a wide range of conditions and are the tool of choice for injuries, arthritis and other conditions that may be more significant than what may be treated with our Platelet-Rich Plasma or Platelet Lysate Procedure.

Regenexx® offers the world’s most advanced stem cell and blood platelet procedures for treating orthopedic injuries, arthritis and other degenerative conditions.

ABOUT DR. ROLANDAS JANUŠAS
Dr. Rolandas Janušas, head of the Belgian Oreme clinic, is not only the first certified Regenexx specialist in Europe, he is also a trained orthopedic and spine surgeon, having performed over 25 000 various orthopedic infiltrations using ultra-sound imaging and ultrasound-guided injections since the year 2000.

Why Regenexx is a Better Option than Fusion Surgery or Steroid Epidural Injections

Fusion surgery is a highly invasive procedure and is more likely to cause complications (complications occur in 36% of fusion patients). 76% still required narcotics for pain and missed 3 times as much work as those who didn’t have surgery.

A steroid epidural is an injection that places steroid medication around irritated or inflamed nerves in the spine. While they do help patients avoid surgery, epidurals use very high dose steroids that can cause severe side effects and actually reduce the body’s ability to heal.

Regenexx offers a variety of minimally invasive procedures that deliver ultra-precise spinal injections of platelet lysates or stem cells where needed utilizing advanced imaging guidance.

The Spine Owner’s Manual — How to Avoid Back Pain & Life Altering Surgery

The Spine Owner’s Manual Download

  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

Written by Dr. Chris Centeno, this e-book delves into the spine and how it functions within the human musculoskeletal system and the body as a whole. Everything within the body works together, like a precisely tuned symphony, to support our well-being, and a healthy spine and all of its component parts (e.g., spinal nerves, ligaments, muscles, etc.) are critical to full-body health. When a single component in the spinal chain is damaged, it can lead to a cascade of problems not only in the musculoskeletal system but throughout the body and even further spinal damage when it goes untreated. The result is chronic pain anywhere in the body that with the proper diagnostic approach can be traced back to the damage in the spine.

Using the Regenexx SANS approach, The Spine Owner’s Manual provides a series of tests and clearly defined exercises that you can do on your own to measure and monitor your own spinal health. It will allow you to investigate where your own body might be struggling to maintain proper stability, articulation, symmetry, and neuromuscular function and will help you make the connections between these deficiencies in other parts of the body and the spine.

The Spine Owner’s Manual also explores how Regenexx is pioneering the new field of interventional orthopedics, where the use of regenerative biologic treatments, such as adult stem cell therapy and platelet rich plasma, are being used to help repair and strengthen damaged tissues not only in the spine but in the entire musculoskeletal system. This is contrasted with invasive spinal surgeries, which often remove important tissues or permanently fuse, or immobilize, segments of the spine when it becomes damaged. With hyperlinks to more detailed information, related studies, and commentary, this book condenses a vast amount of data, images, and resources into an enjoyable and informative read. This is the first edition of The Spine Owner’s Manual, a companion book to Orthopedics 2.0.

Platelet Treatments for Pain from Bulging or Herniated Discs

Bulging & Herniated Discs Explained

A bulging disc is also called a disc protrusion or bulge. This means that the outer covering of the disc (annulus) is partially torn or damaged and the inner gel is causing the area to bulge. This can put pressure on a spinal nerve and cause numbness and tingling (sciatica).

A herniated disc is also called a disc extrusion, slipped disc, sequestration, or “HNP” (Herniated Nucleus Pulposis). This means that the outer covering of the disc (annulus) is completely torn or damaged and the inner gel squirts out. This can put pressure on a spinal nerve or cause severe swelling and lead to numbness and tingling (sciatica).

Stem Cell Treatment for Torn & Painful Discs

Torn and Painful Discs Explained

Disc tears are also called annular tears or HIZs (High Intensity Zones) on MRI images. A patient with a painful and torn disc has “disogenic pain”. The outer covering of the disc can be torn due to injury and painful nerves can grow into the area, leading to low back pain, usually with sitting or activity. In addition, the tear in the disc may lead to noxious chemicals escaping and irritating the spinal nerve, which can lead to sciatica.

Patients with this type of disc damage and pain generally have the best response from a Regenexx Stem Cell injection procedure.

This non-surgical procedure uses stem cells isolated from the patient’s own bone marrow. The marrow is collected using a special needle during a simple office procedure. The harvesting procedure is well tolerated by patients and many patients report experiencing no pain. After collection, the marrow is centrifuged to concentrate and purify the stem cells while removing unneeded cells. These stem cells, along with a preparation of concentrated blood platelets, are injected into the damaged disc using advanced imaging guidance.

Why our spine stem cell treatments are better than others

The typical stem cell procedure provider uses an automated one-size-fits-all centrifuge to prepare cells. At Regenexx, our processing allows us to custom tailor our regenerative mixtures for your condition and our patented two-tier processing results in 10 to 20 times more stem cells available for your treatment. While some practices add platelet rich plasma to their stem cell concentrate, we use a proprietary super concentrated platelet mix. By mixing our second generation, lab prepared Platelet Rich Plasma (which contains slow release growth factors) and our third generation platelet lysate (immediately available growth factors), we were able to get adult stem cells to grow many times more than just PRP or platelet lysate alone.
