Am I a Candidate for Regenexx PROCEDURES?

Regenexx can be beneficial for patients experiencing a variety of types of injuries and/or pain. When other forms of treatment don't seem to work and you don't want to deal with the downtime, scarring, and recovery process associated with most surgical procedures, Regenexx can often be a useful alternative. During your initial consultation, Dr. Lehman will assess your body to ensure that you are an ideal candidate for this procedure. Regenexx can treat a variety of conditions, including:

How Do Regenexx PROCEDURES Work?

Utilizing breakthrough processes regarding bone marrow and blood platelets, Regenexx is able to relieve joint or bone pain, torn or strained tendons and ligaments, and other common injuries and degenerative conditions. Our own cellular mechanisms are what stimulate the healing process when we injure ourselves. However, as we age, our bodies begin to struggle to supply enough of these cells to recover from injuries. Regenexx procedures are able to remedy this issue by delivering a high volume of growth factors and bone marrow directly into the injured area of the body, allowing it to recover naturally.

What Results Can I Expect from Regenexx PROCEDURES?

Many patients love Regenexx because there is little to no downtime or recovery associated with the treatment. While some patients may feel a bit of soreness after the procedure, the area should be feeling back to normal within only a short while. Depending on your particular condition, we may recommend multiple treatments in order to maintain optimal results. During these follow-up appointments, our team can make necessary adjustments to your treatment to ensure you're receiving the care you need.

Regenexx FAQs

Can you treat more than one area at a time with Regenexx?

Regenexx can be administered in more than one area at a time. However, we may or may not make this recommendation based on several factors. It's best to schedule an assessment with Asheville Regenerative Orthopedics & Sports Medicine and listen to our advice before making this decision. Our goal is to ensure the best possible outcomes based on your personal health and needs.

What should I expect during a blood draw?

A blood draw is essential for a successful Regenexx procedure. Many patients have questions about the blood draw or are unsure how to prepare. Blood is normally taken from a vein in your arm, and the amount drawn varies depending on your treatment plan. If you are concerned about the process or have a fear of needles, our team can provide guidelines in-office and take every measure to make sure you feel comfortable.

How is the Regenexx different than traditional surgery?

The Regenexx process is different because it doesn't involve general anesthesia, scalpels, or stitches. Asheville Regenerative Orthopedics & Sports Medicine is proud to offer minimally invasive outpatient procedures so patients can return home immediately afterward. Regenexx is ideal for busy professionals who don't have time to recover from surgery and aren't interested in a lengthy recovery.

How much does Regenexx cost?

The overall price of Regenexx can differ from one patient to another due to a number of factors. Our talented staff will listen to your goals and concerns during your initial consultation in order to create a treatment plan that is completely tailored to your unique needs. Once this plan has been agreed upon, we can provide a more accurate cost estimate.

Is Regenexx painful?

No. Thanks to our modern equipment and experienced staff, the vast majority of our patients do not report feeling any pain or discomfort during their treatment. In fact, our patients are typically able to return to their normal daily lives immediately after their treatment.

Is Regenexx covered by medical insurance?

While your insurance will cover preliminary and follow-up examinations, it will likely not cover Regenexx. However, our staff is trained to work with our patients to find a financing plan that works for them.
