The Regenexx® family of non-surgical stem-cell & blood platelet procedures are next generation regenerative injection treatments for those who are suffering from shoulder pain due to arthritis, rotator cuff and shoulder labrum tears, overuse injuries, and other degenerative conditions. Regenexx is also a viable alternative for those considering shoulder replacement surgery.
Patient Outcome Data & Commonly Treated Shoulder 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.
Shoulder / Rotator Cuff Patient Outcome DataView Shoulder / Rotator Cuff Patient Outcome Data
This outcome information summarizes the patient registry data for shoulders treated with the Regenexx-SD (same-day) procedure using the patient’s own stem cells. It was comprised of a mix of patients with rotator cuff tears, arthritis, labral tears, and instability.
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.

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.
The Regenexx Procedure for Rotator Cuff Tears is a patented same-day stem cell procedure. Through years of research and perfecting the use of stem cells and platelets to repair rotator cuff tears, Regenexx improves the rotator cuff’s regenerative potential, rather than further damaging an area that has given way because of tissue weakness.
Using a precise, image-guided injection of your own stem cells and growth factors, we are able to get more of the body’s natural “repairmen” directly into the tear. By mobilizing your body’s own healing mechanisms and eliminating the trauma of surgery and atrophy caused by immobilization, Regenexx has produced good results in the treatment of partial rotator cuff tears and has even shown encouraging success with completely retracted tears.
The Best Possible Patient Outcomes
A Complete Stem Cell Protocol – Not Just a Single Procedure
100% Focused on Orthopedics
Up to 20 Times More Stem Cells Available for Your Treatment Using Patented Cell Processing Procedure
Image-Guided Injections and Harvesting
Bone Marrow Derived Stem Cells
Tissue Repair on MRI
We are commonly asked if there’s any MRI proof of healing. The answer is yes and we publish before and after MRIs on a regular basis in our daily blog posts for all kind of conditions and treatments. This before and after MRI of a very large rotator cuff tear confirms that even severe tissue damage can heal following our regenerative treatments.Note the large gap in the rotator cuff on the left (red arrow). The same area is now healed in the after MRI image on the right. This patient was treated with our patented stem cell protocol.
