Dr. Christie Lehman MD, FABPMR, R-MSK
Dr. Lehman is a former college athlete who, like many, "overdid it." During her many years of playing soccer, she suffered severe knee injuries that required multiple reconstructive surgeries and lengthy recoveries.
Not enough can be said about the importance of injury prevention. We now know that youths who suffer an ACL injury, for example, are likely to develop arthritis in their knee by the time they are 30. Many of us end up paying the price for injuries suffered in our earlier years. There are more people than ever experiencing pain and limitation because of old injuries and wear and tear conditions.
Dr. Lehman is very passionate about finding nonsurgical treatment options for those, young and old, who are looking to still enjoy an active life.

"Asheville Regenerative Ortho is the closest provider of Regennex treatment to my home. My company covers Regennex, and as an alternative to knee replacement (both knees) I decided to take a chance. Very happy I did. Had left knee procedure at the end of May, and that knee is almost entirely pain free now. Planning to do right knee soon. Dr Lehmann and all the staff are very professional, explained the treatment and its potential for my specific situation."
"I had the Regennex procedure on my left knee in May 2022. 3 months later it is nearly pain free (compared to highly painful prior). Planning to have right knee done soon. Dr. Lehman and entire staff were friendly, professional, and explained the procedure and likely outcome in detail. Very satisfied with the results so far, and hoping this delays the need for knee replacements for several years."
"Dr. Lehman has made me pain free in both knees. The precision and thoroughness of her treatment was exemplary!!! Her nurse (and intern) were so helpful and supportive during the treatment!!! Months and months of pain were erased in a few minutes of treatment!!! Thank you!!! Also I feel I have a safety net for any injury or pain in my body which will allow me to keep playing pickleball and golf!!!!"
"I was told I would need a knee replacement. Dr. Lehman did the stem cell injections and my knee is working great. It may not last forever but putting off the surgery is great!"
"Dr Lehman walked me through my recent stem cell procedure with professionalism and awesome skill!She sincerely cares for her patients!"
