Successful Stem Cell Therapy for Hip Pain

Nonsurgical treatment options are becoming more prevelant and attractive.  Both surgery and anesthesia have risks.  Surgery is often followed by extensive, time-consuming painful physical rehabilitation.

CH is an 50y/o athletic patient with  2yr histoyr of left hip who was an candidate for total hip joint replacemtn.  MRI of the left hip was significant for loss of cartilage, bone spurs and bruising of the bone.   CH rejected surgery and elected to use his own mesenchymal stem cells at the Centeno-Schultz Clinic.

Treatments included Regenexx-C, Regenexx SD and myofasical deactivation

Six months post stem cell injection CH writes:  ” I believe I am about 80% healed.  Pain is greatly reduced and some days I hardly notice it at all.  One of my favorite activities prior to the arthritis was hiking and backpacking.  I have been on two hikes of 4 and 7 miles on mountain trails post treatment and did fine.  I plan to go on a backpacking trip soon as well.”

Advances in the treatment of common orthopedic conditions have allowed CH and other patients to forgo total joint replacment and return to their passions.
