Successful ACL repair with Stem Cell Therapy

Tears of the Anterior Cruciate ligament (ACL) are game changers and often are repaired surgically. Surgical repair is associated with surgical risks and involves signficant rehabilitation and patience.  Stem cell therapy has been successfully used in the repair of ACL tears as previously blogged.

Another successful case is BT who is a 17 y/o collegiate football player who sustained a complete rupture of the ACL in November 2012. He declined surgical repair and underwent Regenexx SD in 11.2012. He is returning to clinic next week but he forwarded the new MRI report which is posted below. It reports repair of the ACL tear 3 months following stem cell therapy.  Stay tuned as I will post images next week.
