How Does Regenexx-C Work? Why Choose Regenexx-C? Regenexx-C: What’s Included? What’s Next? FAQ

How does Regenexx-C work?

Regenexx-C is a two-part, cultured stem cell procedure.

Part 1

A U.S board certified physician will perform your bone marrow aspiration. Using proprietary lab techniques, our cell biologists will then isolate your mesenchymal stem cells from your bone marrow aspirate. These repair-enhancing stem cells can be used to treat orthopedic issues. Your stem cells are grown to much larger numbers (you will have up to 100 – 1,000 times more stem cells available), thoroughly tested for quality assurance, and cryogenically frozen at our state-of-the-art laboratory.

Part 2

You will receive a pre-injection, a re-injection of your cultured stem cells, and a post-injection. Regenexx-C injections are completed using advanced image guidance. This allows us to see exactly where your stem cells are being injected, so we can precisely target your problem areas – giving you the best possible outcome. Your additional stem cells are safely stored at our laboratory and available for treatment at any time.

When will I see results from my Regenexx-C treatment?

Most patients report a modest improvement in the first month, and patients usually notice continuous improvement many months post-procedure. Our outcome data suggests peak functionality at 1-2 years after treatment.

Like all medical procedures, Regenexx procedures have a success and failure rate, and not everyone will experience the same results. Results may vary based on an individual’s overall condition, health, the number and frequency of stem cell therapies, and recovery response time. Depending on the underlying condition, some patients see significant improvement after one treatment, while others elect to have “top-up" treatment in the future

Can Regenexx-C treat my orthopedic issue?

Regenexx-C treatment can be used on most joint structures. It is frequently used to treat severe orthopedic issues, and it is a trusted alternative to orthopedic surgery. Regenexx-C is used to treat a number of orthopedic issues and conditions, including arthritis, non-union or non-healing fractures, avascular necrosis, degenerative disc disease, herniated or bulging discs, or spondylosis. To find out if Regenexx-C can treat your orthopedic condition, please contact our patient care team.

Does Regenexx-C treatment hurt?

Prior to your treatment, we use local anesthetic to numb your skin. Everyone perceives pain differently, but most patients report the re-injection as mildly to moderately uncomfortable. It also depends on your pain tolerance, type of treatment, injection site, and the number of joints being treated. If you are worried about treatment, oral medication can be given to help you relax, or conscious sedation can be coordinated.

How much does Regenexx-C treatment cost?

Regenexx-C treatment starts at US$19,500. The total cost depends on the number of re-injection sites and your individual treatment plan.

Regenexx-C is not covered by insurance; however, some health insurance providers cover the cost of the initial consultation. Coverage varies depending on the provider and plan, so we encourage patients to contact their health insurance company directly.

Is Regenexx-C treatment safe?

Your safety is our priority. At Regenexx Cayman, our quality assurance protocols are designed to ensure your stem cells are safe and healthy for re-injection. Over the years, Regenexx physicians have performed many studies assessing both the safety and complications of using culture-expanded stem cells for orthopedic use, and have found there to be no neoplastic complications detected at any stem cell re-implantation site.

After your stem cells are cryopreserved, a sample is tested for sterility at a third-party laboratory. A stem cell sample is also sent for karyotype analysis at an independent cytogenetics laboratory at the University of Colorado. This analysis examines whole chromosome structure and number, which is indicative of cell stability and health. As an additional safeguard, a sample is tested immediately before re-injection to ensure your stem cells are free of endotoxins.

All sample processing takes place in a highly controlled laboratory, which meets ISO Class 7 criteria and is certified by the International Cellular Medicine Society (ICMS). Our laboratory air is HEPA-filtered, and we maintain stringent standards of sterility for clinical products, use aseptic technique, and adhere to strict protective gowning protocols. All lab equipment and surfaces are frequently and thoroughly disinfected.
