Hip pain can be very difficult to deal with on a day-to-day basis and traditionally requires long-term pain management if the problem is not corrected. Hip surgery, hip replacement surgery and hip resurfacing are often the only medical options presented to a patient to deal with their debilitating pain. If you are considering a hip replacement, you might want to read about how stem cells stack up against hip replacements.
Regenexx stem cell and blood platelet procedures offer a non-surgical treatment option for many patients who are considering elective surgeries to resolve their hip pain. Regenexx may help heal and alleviate hip problems with a same-day injection procedure by amplifying the concentration of a person’s own stem cells in the problem area, improving the body’s ability to heal itself naturally.
Hip surgeries are usually traumatic and are followed by weeks to months of discomfort while attempting to redevelop strength and mobility. Alternatively, Regenexx patients are typically encouraged to walk the same day, and most experience little to no down time from the procedure.

“I just want to report some great progress since my AVN hip procedure. I can now stand in place comfortably for as long as I want, which I could not do before. I can now comfortably sink down into my Tai Chi positions which I also could not do before.” L.B.
What does the Registry Outcome data for Hip Arthritis look like?
We have a world class treatment registry where we track all patients who are treated. Every year we have our bio statistician review this data and publish it on our web-site. This is the 2013 registry download on patients with hip arthritis treated with the Regenexx-SD stem cell procedure. Note that for hips only, patients under the age of 55 years did better than those who were over that age.
