Just a quick update note. DS is a 55 year old woman with a multi-year history of chronic hip arthritis which referred pain to the groin/thigh. She was told she was a GOOD-FAIR candidate to inject her own cultured stem cells into her hip under x-ray guidance to try and avoid the need for a total hip replacement. This is her comment from about 6 months out from her last procedure:
“I just wanted to let you know my right hip is doing great….I’m back to cycling and doing four/five 90 minute yoga classes a week. Compared to where I was last year this time…(when I found it difficult to just walk across the parking lot to your office)… I’m very thankful for the progress. My last stem cell injection on Dec 10, 2009. ..Thanks again.”
(Please note, this patient was treated with the Regenexx-C cultured stem cell procedure and not Regenexx-SD. While Regenexx-SD does rely on the same stem cell type that was used to treat these patients and other clinics have reported good results using similar procedures that don’t rely on stem cell culturing, Regenexx-SD clinical effectiveness has not yet been established. In addition, not all patients would be expected to respond as well as DS.)
