Continued Success with ACL Tear Treated with Stem Cells

MM is a 16 y/o athlete who torn her ACL and declined surgical repair.  She opted for Regenexx SD where bone marrow derived stem cells along with platelets are utilized to repair injured tissue.

Regenexx SD has been used successfully in the treatment of ACL tears in other patients.

MM tore her ACL in 2.2013 while playing soccer and underwent stem cell treatment in march 2013.

MRI 3 months post Regenexx SD demonstrated improvement which corresponded with her signficant clinical improvement.

Patient underwent x-ray guided injection of cSCP as a booster in July 2013.

I recently reviewed new knee MRI which is 6 months post stem cell treatment.   It demonstrates continued improvement and healing.  Most importatly there is no ACL tear.  MM is now active and without pain or instability.

Below are the pre, 3 month and 6 month post Regenexx MRI’s.  Note the serial improvement in the ACL fibers which are outlined in yellow.
