Image Guidance

All Regenexx procedures are performed by our expert physicians using ultrasound guidance, fluoroscopy (real-time X-rays), or both to guarantee that we’re delivering cells into the precise location of your injury.

Most orthopedic practices perform injections blind without any kind of image guidance. Research shows that even trained physicians miss the target location 20-40% of the time when not using image guidance. Even when non-Regenexx physicians do use image guidance, they’ve only been trained in basic injection procedures and lack the sophisticated training provided to our expert physicians to ensure precise placement of orthobiologics.

The precise placement of orthobiologics like stem cells and platelet products using advanced imaging guidance is a new medical specialty called Interventional Orthopedics. To learn more, watch Dr. Centeno’s video below:

"We use Ultrasound to look at the ligaments on the outside of the ankle to make sure we target the Orthobiologics directly in those ligaments."

When the cells make contact with the tissue, they adhere to the tissue. You have to put them directly where they need to go.

What separates us from other stem cell providers performing Intradiscal treatments is our ability to customize treatment for every patient.

I want to confirm accurate placement in the labrum, and to do that, I need ultrasound.

You have to inject the origin and the insertion of the anterior medial and posterolateral fibers. It's only then you get the best possible outcome.
