Dr Axe on the Advanced Stem Cell Site in Grand Cayman

POSTED ON IN Latest News Patient Testimonials Regenexx-C Videos BY Chris Centeno

Dr. Axe runs one of the Internet’s top health and fitness websites with his wife, Chelsea. Both are heavily into diet and natural remedies as well as ways to help people get into and stay in shape. Like all athletes, the wear and tear accumulate through the years, and eventually it catches up. Being health providers, they knew that orthopedic surgery wasn’t the right answer if they wanted to keep going at a high level as they aged. So they researched stem cells. However, researching stem cell therapies on the Internet can be a harrowing experience as the amount of nutty stuff and outright silly claims are dizzying. However, one name kept coming up as credible as they researched and talked to colleagues—Regenexx. So they gave us a call earlier this year, and we began treating them both in our Colorado and Grand Cayman locations. This is Dr. Axe’s testimonial about our Grand Cayman site, which fits well this week since I’m down here seeing patients. Enjoy!

The Regenexx-C procedure is not approved by the US FDA and is only offered in countries via license where culture-expanded autologous cells are permitted via local regulations.

    Can stem cell treatments be successful if your Orthopedic Doctor has been giving you cortisone shots for years. He has recently told me that I'm at end stage blah, blah, blah, and do not have any cartilage left and will soon need total knee replacement .

    Rick,

    It's more likely that the cortisone shots created the current situation, as they kill the stem cells which would repair the damage and repeated steroid shots break down the cartilage itself! http://www.regenexx.com/steroid-injection-risks/ The question would be which type of treatment you need. If you'd like us to weigh in on your knee in particular, please submit the Candidate form.
