Is there a better option than foot or ankle surgery?

Regenexx provides breakthrough, non-surgical treatments that use your body's own healing agents to treat and repair injuries including foot and ankle osteoarthritis, tendon and ligament tears, and other degenerative problems related to the foot or ankle.

Your Alternative to Foot & Ankle Surgery 

Have you been told that steroid injections or invasive surgery are your only options to treat your foot or ankle pain? Interventional orthopedics provides a non-surgical alternative that uses your own cells to repair the damage.

Surgical treatment options for common foot and ankle injuries and arthritis include interventions such as ankle arthroscopy to clean up damaged cartilage, fusion of ankle bones where cartilage has been lost, and tendon grafts screwed in place to strengthen loose connections between bones. These surgeries also typically involve a painful post surgical recovery with a lengthy rehab period to restore strength and mobility.

Even worse, many patients experience less than optimal results from these irreversible surgeries because their biomechanics are permanently altered. This alteration subsequently causes knee, hip, and back pain as a result of additional and unintended strain. This pain occurs because the body requires millimeter precision to main proper function as the foot strikes the ground, becomes immobile, and forces then travel up the body, and often these surgeries are not able to restore alignment to such a precise level. We frequently see one orthopedic procedure lead to another because of the ripple effect that can occur when any part of this chain is out of balance.

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.

Regenexx provides breakthrough, non-surgical treatments that use your body's own healing agents to treat foot and ankle pain due to common injuries including foot and ankle osteoarthritis, tendon and ligament tears or laxity, and other degenerative conditions related to the foot and ankle.

Regenexx stem-cell and platelet-rich plasma procedures are the world’s most advanced regenerative injection treatments for treating foot and ankle conditions. Before you consider ankle surgery, fusion, or replacement, consider the world’s leading stem-cell and platelet injection treatments.

Regenexx patients are typically encouraged to walk the same day, most experience little to no down time, little to no need for opioid pain medication, and minimal to no time off work.

This page contains an extensive library of educational resources on foot and ankle conditions and our patented foot and ankle procedures created by Regenexx and our founder, Chris Centeno, M.D.. We encourage you to research your options.
