Happy Hip Pain Holiday

POSTED ON IN Hip Regenexx-C BY Chris Centeno


This may be my last post before going on vacation for the Christmas holiday.  Just received this e-mail from a patient with severe hip arthritis who was treated by injecting her own, culture expanded stem cells using the Regenexx-C procedure here in Colorado.  Again, we don’t claim to have a 100% success rate and this is a new procedure (hence the insurance comments), but I thought that this is the best type of holiday card a clinic like ours can receive, so here’s the copy/paste:

“Happy Holidays!….I’m so glad to have completed all my treatments. My margin of improvement is HUGE.  I’m so thankful the doctors were able to releive the pain I experienced 24/7. This has been the best gift ever!!!  Having said that I know insurance doesn’t want to pay for this stuff…but I feel obligated to hassel them a little.  It’s just wrong they would so easily pay for some expensive barbaric surgery and not stem cells…I feel they need to become aware of alternatives.  Thanks, D”

(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.)
