If you have encountered an injury to the knee meniscus, knee cartilage, ACL or MCL ligaments, or have chronic knee pain due to a past injury or arthritis, you may be a good candidate for a Regenerative Stem Cell or Blood Platelet Procedure. Traditional options for patients suffering from these issues include arthroscopic knee surgery to repair ligament tears or total knee joint replacement. With both surgeries, months of rehab are required to regain strength and mobility and the patient must be aware of and prepared to take on the risks.
As an alternative to knee surgery or knee replacement, Regenerative procedures may help alleviate knee pain and the conditions that cause it with a same-day office injection procedure. Unlike traditional surgery, patients that receive Regenerative Procedures are typically encouraged to walk the same day, and most patients experience very little down time from the procedure.
This is not a complete list of conditions treated, but the most common knee conditions we have treated throughout the years. If you are experiencing knee pain, injury, or arthritis, please contact us or complete the candidate form below to learn more and find out if Regenerative Procedures are right for you.

As the nation’s leader of orthopedic stem cell procedures, only Regenexx publishes this type of analysis of patient outcome data. The data is made possible thanks to the massive numbers that have been accumulating for years in the Regenexx patient registry.
This patient outcome data is not part of a controlled trial. Every Regenexx Procedure patient becomes part of a registry to track outcomes and any complications. This data is a compilation of patient input to the Regenexx Patient Registry at regular intervals following their Regenexx Procedure.
Catalyst Pain Solutions’ same-day Regenerative Stem Cell Procedures utilize both bone marrow cells & adipose-derived cells. This procedure may be used to help structural conditions in a joint, such as a displaced meniscus.
This data utilizes LEFS (Lower Extremity Functional Scale) data from knee arthritis patients treated with Regenerative Stem Cell injections. Functional questionnaires ask the patients questions such as how well they can walk, run, climb stairs, etc. The improvements following Regenerative Procedures are highly statistically significant.
If you are considering a knee replacement, you might want to read about how Regenerative Stem Cell Procedures stack up against knee replacements.
The episode features Dr. Centeno and Dr. Hanson, along with patient Barbee James, who required stem cell treatment after a failed micro fracture and continued problems following traditional knee surgery. The episode provided a nice overview of a Regenexx-SD (same-day) stem cell procedure for Barbee’s knee cartilage damage.
On February 28, 2013 Seattle King TV featured Regenexx patient Paul Lyon, who underwent a Regenexx-SD knee procedure in our Broomfield clinic. The story looks at his results and includes an interview with Dr. Christopher Centeno, along with footage in our advanced lab where stem cells are processed as part of the procedure.
