Stem Cell Therapy for Non-Union Fractures

Today I saw a patient back in clinic who was quite upset 9 months ago.  He had fallen and fractured his tibia and fibula which required a surgery invovling  placement of a rod and two screws.  Despite surgery and a bone stimulator, the fracture did not heal.  He was so upset at the prospect of undergoing another surgery where they had planned on removing the existing  hardware and re-breaking the bones in an effort to stimulate healing.  Fortunately the surgery was not needed.

The patient utilized his own stem cells through the Regenexx procedure to heal the fracture.  He is out of his wheelchari and has no leg pain.  Regenerative Sciences enable patients to utilize their own stem cells to heal a variety of orthopedic conditions.
