Regenexx® Stem Cell & Platelet Procedures for Elbow Injuries, Overuse Conditions and Arthritis
Regenexx® Stem Cell & Platelet Rich Plasma Procedures are the world’s most advanced regenerative injection treatments for treating arthritis, overuse conditions such as tennis elbow or golfer’s elbow, and other conditions that cause elbow pain.
If you are experiencing elbow pain, Regenexx Procedures are likely an excellent treatment option. In recent years, several studies have shown the effectiveness of platelet rich plasma in treating elbow tendon and ligament issues. In fact, these studies are so decisive that at this point in time, there are very few cases where surgery would be recommended for anything but the most severe elbow injuries.
Commonly Treated Hip Conditions
This is not a complete list, so please contact us or complete the Regenexx Candidate Form if you have questions about whether you or your condition can be treated with these non-surgical procedures.
- Lateral Epicondylitis – Also known as Tennis Elbow
- Medial Epicondylitis – Also known as Golfer’s Elbow
- Nerve entrapment (ulnar nerve)
Regenexx Procedure Safety Data
The information below applies to our safety data on stem cell procedures. Most elbow conditions are treated with platelet rich plasma, which is a far less complex treatment than our stem cell procedure, which requires a bone marrow draw as part of the process (and also includes a platelet rich plasma post-injection).
How It Works
Stem Cell Treatments
Adult stem cells are cells from your own body that can renew themselves and turn into other cells (differentiate). They 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. Regenexx Stem Cell Procedures help overcome this problem by extracting stem cells from an area of high volume, then concentrating the cells and reinjecting them into the damaged area to help the body heal naturally.
Our Patented Stem Cell Procedures can be used for a wide range of conditions and are the tool of choice for injuries, arthritis and other conditions that may be more significant than what may be treated with our Platelet Rich Plasma or Platelet Lysate Procedures.
Blood Platelet Treatments
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Platelet Lysate Injection Treatments contain healing growth components from your own blood that increase your body’s natural ability to repair itself. The use of PRP to repair joint, tendon, ligament, and muscle injuries is becoming well known, thanks to exposure from professional athletes. Platelet injection treatments are effective because they have a stimulating effect on the stem cells within the targeted area, making those stem cells work harder to heal damaged tissues.
Our Advanced Platelet Procedures are more pure and concentrated than those created by the automated machines used at most regenerative medicine clinics. Platelet procedures are commonly used for soft tissue injuries, mild arthritis and spine conditions.
