The Regenexx Family of Procedures
Regenexx began in 2003, and has a long medical history as being the trusted alternative to orthopedic surgery. In 2011, Health Link Medical Center, now Derrington Orthopedics - Interventional Sports and Spine, became the first west-coast clinic licensed and trained to perform the Regenexx® family of Bone Marrow Concentrate and Super Concentrated Platelet Rich Plasma & Platelet Lysate Procedures. These advanced procedures provide non-surgical treatment options for those suffering from joint or bone pain, torn or strained tendons and ligaments, or other common injuries and degenerative conditions. Regenexx procedures offer a viable alternative for patients with chronic pain and who may be considering surgery.
Your Alternative to Orthopedic Surgery
Regenexx uses your body's natural healing ability to repair damage to bones, muscles, cartilage, tendons, and ligaments non-surgically. Our proprietary, research-driven techniques allow us to concentrate your cells and to place them in the precise area of your injury to promote healing and to achieve optimal outcomes.
Since 2005 we have conducted research, accumulated patient results data and obtained direct feedback from our patients with one purpose in mind—to help you make an informed, confident decision to treat your condition.
Stem Cell Treatments
Regenexx-SD is Bone Marrow Concentrate, which contains stem cells. These repair cells from your own body live inside all of us in various tissues, poised to leap into action to repair damage as it occurs. As we age or have big injuries, we may not be able to recruit enough of these cells to the site to fully repair the area. The Regenexx-SD Procedure helps overcome this problem by harvesting Bone Marrow from an area of the back of the hip that contains a dense population of these important cells and then concentrating those cells before precisely injecting them into the injured area using advanced imaging guidance. The goal of the procedure is to reduce pain and improve function by promoting the body's own ability to heal naturally. This Patented Bone Marrow Concentrate Protocol can be used for a wide range of orthopedic conditions. Your Regenexx doctor will evaluate your condition and your imaging to determine whether a bone marrow concentrate or platelet-based treatment is the best option for your orthopedic condition.
Blood Platelet Treatments
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Platelet Lysate are Platelet procedures that contain healing growth factors from your own blood that promote your body’s natural ability to repair itself. The use of PRP to treat joint, tendon, ligament, and muscle injuries is becoming well known, thanks to exposure from professional athletes. Platelet injections have a stimulating effect on the repair cells within the targeted area, making those cells work harder to perform their natural job of healing the body. Like all Regenexx procedures, Regenexx SCP procedures are performed with high-level imaging guidance to ensure the most accurate placements of cells into the desired area. Our Advanced Platelet Procedures are more concentrated and purer than PRP created by the automated machines used at most regenerative medicine clinics, increasing its ability to stimulate the body's natural healing response. Platelet procedures are commonly used for soft tissue injuries, mild arthritis, spine conditions, and around nerves.
Supported Natural Healing
Your Body's Natural Healing
Derrington Orthopedics uses advanced imaging techniques, including ultrasound imaging and fluoroscopy, to inject your cells and platelets that support healing exactly where needed for maximum efficacy. Our clinic utilizes your body's cells and/or platelets and inject them into precisely the right spot to help you avoid surgery.
Physician Expertise and Training
The Best Doctors with the Best Training
The Regenexx network accepts only a handful of interested physicians. We turn most applicants away based on their lack of advanced training in image-guided injection procedures. Regenexx physicians are required to have extensive experience with complex, image-guided injections and comprehensive evaluation of musculoskeletal injuries. Our physicians also receive hundreds of hours of initial and ongoing training.
Regenexx SANS Evaluations
Detailed Evaluations and Diagnostics
Correct diagnosis takes time. Regenexx physicians spend an average of an hour with new patients evaluating every aspect of their injuries and developing a comprehensive treatment plan that addresses not only the site of pain but its underlying causes. Patients then receive a candidacy grade that rates the likelihood that a Regenexx procedure can help them.
Delivering a Better Product
Not all regenerative products are created equally. Every Regenexx location has an on-site processing lab. Our proprietary lab-processing techniques allow us to achieve much higher concentrations of cells than can be achieved with a bedside centrifuge. On-site lab processing allows us to create a very selective, highly-skilled, interventional orthopedics network that is 100% focused on joint, tendon, ligament, spine, and bone conditions.
We Target the Exact Location of Your Injury
We use precise image guidance for all injections which allows us to target the exact location of the injury. This precision allows for far more consistent and sophisticated treatment than is available without image guidance.
