Regenexx® Stem Cell Procedures for Hand & Basal Joint/CMC Injection Treatment for Arthritis & Other Conditions.

The Regenexx® family of non-surgical stem-cell & blood platelet procedures are next generation regenerative injection treatments for those who are suffering from pain or reduced range of motion due to basal joint / cmc arthritis, hand arthritis, or other injuries & conditions in the hand.

Patient Outcome Data & Commonly Treated Hand, Wrist or CMC Arthritis Conditions

Regenexx is the only stem cell treatment network to publish this type of analysis of patient stem cell procedure outcome data. The analysis is made possible thanks to the massive numbers that are compiled throughout the years in the Regenexx patient registry, which tracks patient outcomes at regular intervals following all of the stem cell procedures we offer.

Note: This patient outcome data is not part of a controlled trial. Every 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. In addition, none of this data may be reproduced in any way or displayed elsewhere without prior written permission from Regenerative Sciences.

  • Hand and Wrist Patient Outcome Data

    This data was derived from a group of patients with mostly severe thumb arthritis who were injected with their own stem cells. Most of these patients would have been candidates for thumb joint replacement or a surgery where a tendon is coiled up in the joint at the base of the thumb. Both are big surgeries with significant complications.

  • Trigger finger

Targeted Procedure Thumb Basal Joint / CMC Arthritis

Thumb CMC/Basal Joint Arthritis or Arthritis of the Hand Joints can appear early in life. The constant swiveling and pivoting motions of the basal joint, at the base of the thumb, tends to wear it out easily. While total joint reconstruction surgery may improve the condition for some, new problems in the thumb joint may develop over time, causing such symptoms as numbness, tenderness, or reduced range of motion.

The Regenexx treatment for CMC Arthritis and other injuries and conditions in the hand joints and wrist, utilizes your own stem cells, blood platelets and/or growth factors to help repair damaged areas that are causing pain.

How it Works

Stem Cell Treatments

Same Day Stem Cell Protocol (USA & International) & Cultured Stem Cell Procedure (Cayman Islands Only)

Adult stem cells are cells from your own body that can renew themselves and turn into other cells (differentiate). 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. Regenexx 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 Patented 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 Procedures.

Blood Platelet Treatments

Super Concentrated Platelet Rich Plasma & Advanced Platelet Lysate Procedures (USA & International)

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. The use of PRP to repair joint, tendon, ligament, and muscle injuries is becoming well known, thanks to exposure from professional athletes. 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.
