The new medical field of Interventional Orthopedics, the use of your body’s natural healing abilities to repair orthopedic injuries non-surgically, has been established. Our approach is rooted in our research and is constantly being refined and developed as we continue to lead the way in finding better methods for harnessing your body’s own healing agents to repair damaged tissue. Our proprietary, evidence-based protocols lead to unparalleled results.
We have a dedicated research and development team and a specialized research laboratory with more than $1 million of equipment that are constantly refining our treatment protocols and developing new techniques. Regenexx has developed many the processing and treatment techniques in use today and we have published roughly half of all research world-wide on the use of mesenchymal stem cells for treatment of orthopedic injuries. In addition, we track results from Regenexx procedures in our outcomes database. We believe that stem cells and other orthobiologics are not magical and that not all approaches are created equal.
What is Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) or Physiatry
Over the last 15 years, the growth of the new field of Interventional Orthopedics has been spearheaded by Physiatrists or PM&R physicians, looking to innovate and get patients back to doing the things they love, faster and without surgery.
PM&R is a medical specialty that began in the 1930's. These physicians are very experienced with neurologic and orthopedic conditions. They are trained to evaluate and treat injuries, illnesses, and disability, and are experts in designing comprehensive, patient-centered treatment plans. Physiatrists utilize cutting-edge as well as time-tested treatments and testing to maximize function and quality of life.
You can find PM&R physicians on the sideline covering NFL football games, in the procedure room providing precision guided injections, or even in the Rehabilitation hospital setting managing a team of healthcare providers.
