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 osteoarthritis (also known as “degenerative joint disease” or “wear and tear arthritis of the knee”), you may be a candidate for a Regenexx 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, and the patient must be aware of and prepared to take on the risks.
As a knee surgery or knee replacement alternative, the Regenexx procedures may help alleviate knee pain and the conditions that cause it with a simple office injection procedure. Patients are encouraged to walk the same day, and most experience little to no down time from the procedure. And if you are considering a knee replacement, you might want to read about how stem cells stack up against knee replacements.

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.
What Type of Results have Patients Reported?
We have collected registry data on our treated knee patients. We have also published the data that’s mature and have reported this to our colleagues and patients. It’s important to note that this data was not collected through controlled clinical trials.
