The Regenexx® Patented Stem Cell Procedure for Non-Union Fractures is a next generation, non-surgical stem cell treatment for people suffering from non-healing fractures.
The procedure works without surgery by greatly increasing the concentration of a person’s own stem cells in the non-healing fracture area, which boosts the bone’s own ability to heal itself naturally.
Traditional options for the treatment of non-union fractures typically involves surgery, which can be painful and require months of rehab, with no guarantees of success. As an alternative to surgery, Regenexx® stem cell procedure patients typically experience little to no down time from the procedure.
Treating Non-Union Fractures with Stem Cells
Most bone fractures heal without difficulty. However, fractures that demonstrate motion of the bony ends with incomplete healing more than 6 months after injury are called non-union fractures.
Of the estimated 6 million bone fractures in the United States each year, approximately 300,000 will develop slow (delayed union) or incomplete healing (non-union). The reasons for a non-union (or failed) fracture may include:
- Complicated, multisegmental factures (severe comminution)
- Open fractures
- Fractures associated with tumors (pathologic fractures)
- Insufficient fracture immobilization (fixation)
- Inadequate blood supply
- Poor nutrition
- Chronic disease states (diabetes, renal failure, metabolic bone disease)
Regenexx - Safer Than Surgery
Stem Cell Procedure SafetyView Stem Cell Procedure Safety
We have published more data on stem cell safety in peer reviewed medical research for orthopedic applications than any other group world-wide. Our n=339 stem cell safety paper published in 2011 was named the best of it’s class by independent European researchers last year. This is a report of 1,591 patients and 1,949 procedures treated with the Regenexx-SD procedure. Based on our analysis of this treatment registry data, the Regenexx-SD procedure is about as safe as any typical injection procedure, which is consistent with what we see every day in the clinic.
Regenexx Published Research on Treating Non-Union Fractures
While published research on treating non-union fractures with stem cells has been limited, Regenexx doctors published a paper on it back in 2008. The research included patient case studies and conclusions. However, unlike more common orthopedic conditions, such as arthritis, the small pool of potential patients for this treatment was quite small. Since that time, our findings continue to show stem cells to be a promising treatment for those with issues relating to bone healing.
