"Dr. Crider and his team are amazing! I had Regenexx done on my lower back and it worked beautifully! Everything was explained to me and I didn’t even need pain meds. I am getting so much relief from the 10+ years of horrible back pain. "- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Mar 29, 2023
"My MRI showed multiple rotator cuff tears, arthritis, bursitis and tendonitis. I chose to see Dr. Christie Lehman and receive Regenexx Procedure. Although I did have down time in response to the treatment, two weeks after the second shot, I was in PT and two weeks later I had zero pain! After four years of debilitating right shoulder pain, I found myself asking in response to zero pain, “What’s wrong with this picture?” Of course, nothing was wrong! Pain was no longer my constant companion. I’m grateful for Dr. Lehman’s expertise and my pain-free return to daily life."- M.O. / Healthgrades / Sep 06, 2022
"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."- R.B. / Google / Sep 19, 2022
"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."- B.B. / Facebook / Sep 19, 2022
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 is unique in that it maintains an active patient registry that continually pings patients about their progress or side effects post-procedure. As a result, we keep records on tens of thousands of Regenexx procedures performed by physicians in our network in our outcomes database. Nobody else on earth has tracked as many orthopedic regenerative cell patient results for as long as Regenexx.
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.
