This depends quite a bit on the severity of the disease. We re constantly publishing case reports on our blog (often with before and after MRI images) which can usually be found at http://www.regenexx.com/global-navigation/regenexx-blog/. In addition, the blog will also feature scientific publications as they are published.

None have yet been completed, but we have three underway. The first involves rotator cuff tears, the second involves knee meniscus tears, and the third sciatica. For info on these trials, please contact our research director Patrick Reishling at preischling@regenexx.com

NO. All medical and surgical procedures have a success rate. This procedure is no different. We do see patients who do not respond. Please take a minute to review a more detailed discussion on this topic by clicking here. In addition, we have featured patient treatment failures on the blog.

As of April 2013 there have been more than greater than 2,000 bone marrow based (many patients receive multiple re-injections) and 3,000 platelet based procedures have been performed. We treated our first patients in 2005.
