Your Alternative to Elbow Surgery
Have you been told that steroid injections or invasive surgery are your only options to treat your elbow pain? Interventional orthopedics provides a non-surgical alternative that uses your own cells to repair the damage.
The elbow can be the site of pain generation for a number of reasons. The most common is tennis or golfer's elbow, but other issues such as UCL injury or arthritis also occur. Common surgical interventions lead to considerable downtime. Treating elbow injuries with steroid injections reduces inflammation in the site of an injury and causes the degeneration of cells at the site of the injection and over time actually leads to significant worsening of the condition. In addition, we have little solid scientific evidence that elbow surgery helps, but we do know it's invasive and has the potential of infection, tissue damage, pain and nerve injury.
At Regenexx we invented a new approach to orthopedic care we call Interventional Orthopedics. This approach involves the use of image guidance (flouroscopy and ultrasound) to precisely place high-dose stem cells or platelets from your body directly where they are needed in a specific joint structure. These cells then work in the site of your injury to grow into new, healthy tissue, a process that will only occur if the cells have been placed exactly where they need to go in order to achieve positive outcomes for the patient. This precise approach to orthopedic care can’t be replicated by a surgeon or nurse in a chiropractor’s office. Interventional Orthopedics requires thousands of hours of training following a standardized protocol process to become a licensed Regenexx physician.
If you're experiencing elbow pain, Regenexx procedures are likely an excellent treatment option. The innovative Regenexx procedures restore elbow function and decrease pain without the need for surgery by regenerating damaged tissue. During these outpatient procedures, our expert physicians use precise image guidance to inject custom concentrations of your body's natural healing mechanisms into the exact areas of damage to tighten and stabilize your elbow joint for better function and mobility.
