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 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 learn more about how stem cells stack up against hip replacements.
Hip surgeries are typically very traumatic and are often followed by months of pain and discomfort while attempting to redevelop strength and mobility. Regenexx patients are typically encouraged to walk the same day, and most experience little to no down time from the procedure.

Hip Patient Outcome Data
This data looks at patient outcomes for same-day stem cell treatments for hip arthritis. Additionally, our data analysis, showed that patients with poor range of motion in their arthritic hip had a slightly less robust outcome.View Hip Patient Outcome Data Here

Recently Published Research on the Efficacy & Safety of Regenexx Stem Cell Procedures on Hip Patients
Efficacy and Safety of Bone Marrow Concentrate for Osteoarthritis of the Hip; Treatment Registry Results for 196 Patients
Introduction: We investigated the efficacy and safety of autologous bone marrow concentrate (BMC) for the treatment of symptomatic hip osteoarthritis.
Methods: Treatment registry data for 216 hips treated among 196 patients who underwent a BMC procedure for hip osteoarthritis (OA) were analyzed. Data regarding adverse events (AEs), subjective percentage improvement, Oxford Hip Scores (OHS), and numeric pain scale (NPS) scores were assessed and compared to baseline at 1, 3, 6 months, and annually after treatment.
Results: The mean reported subjective percentage improvement across all 216 treated hips was 30.2%. The mean OHS change was 6.4 points improved (p<0.001). The NPS scores from baseline to post treatment decreased from 4.5 to 3.3 (p<0.001). Twelve AEs were reported, none of which were serious or persisting. Patients ≤ 55 years old were substantially more likely to report improvement on the OHS [OR: 11.1 (1.6-77.8)] and also more likely to report greater than 50% improvement on the subjective percentage improvement scale [OR: 2.8 (1.2-6.7)].
Conclusion: The present study of BMC injections for hip OA demonstrated encouraging results for improved outcomes with no significant complications. We found that patients younger than 55 years old were more likely to report improvement on the OHS and subjective percentage improvement scales. Further study with randomized trials is warranted to confirm the reported results.
The Regenexx Difference
“Prior to treatment, my last backpacking trip was January, 2009. Since then, I went through the stages of semi-immobility with osteoarthritis. Last weekend I went on my first Post-Regenexx backpacking trip of 32 miles in two days in Great Smoky Mountain National Park. This represents long daily mileage for advanced hikers in this terrain. Although I was apprehensive about trying such a long distance on my first trip out, I did fine. Just a few small blisters on my toes and sore muscles the day after I got back. I had a great time! Thanks so much for your dedication and continued work in advancing the Regenexx procedures. I promote it every chance I have.” Note: Any case reports or patient results presented on this web-site are not indicative of all patient results. Like any medical procedure, all Regenexx procedures have a success and failure rate.
