Valerie Avoids Jaw Replacement With Her Own Stem Cells - Regenexx® Success Story

A TMJ recovery story. Facing a jaw replacement, Valerie turned to Regenexx® and was treated by Dr. Chris Centeno using her own stem cells and platelet rich plasma.

Valerie had suffered from temporomandibular joint (TMJ) issues since the age of 16. In 2014, at the age of 60, she fell and crushed the upper and lower part of the vertebrae at her second lumbar disc. Ten days later, she yawned and completely dislocated her jaw. For 18 months, she was unable to chew solid or soft food and had to blend everything she ate. The doctors where she lived told her she’d need a total jaw replacement, so Valerie went to Boston seeking other options, but the experts there also recommended jaw replacement. Here's Valerie's complete story.
