International Stem Cell Procedures
Stem cells act as our bodies’ repairmen; however, as we age or get injured, we sometimes cannot get enough of these critical repair cells to the injured area. Regenexx stem cell procedures increase the availability of these cells and enhance the body’s natural ability to heal.
Depending on a patient’s injury and specific needs, the doctor will recommend which stem cell procedure will provide the best results. Some indications benefit greatly from a same-day procedure (which is available in our California offices), while others are best treated with cultured stem cells (Regenexx-C). Regenexx Cayman also offers a tailored treatment for injured spine discs (Regenexx-C Disc). Cultured stem cells often expand substantially and additional cells can be cryopreserved and saved for future treatments.
At Regenexx Cayman, we ensure that your cells are tended to with the utmost care and attention, in order to guarantee the highest possible quality of your cells.
The world’s most advanced, orthopedic stem cell procedure
Regenexx-C cultured stem cell procedure represents the gold standard for orthopedic stem cell procedures.
Patients from around the world travel to Regenexx Cayman to receive this cutting-edge treatment, which is performed by our U.S. Board Certified physicians who are experts in the field of regenerative medicine and interventional orthopedics.
About the procedure
Regenexx-C is a two part, cultured stem cell procedure. During part 1 of the Regenexx-C procedure a patient’s own bone marrow stem cells are extracted and harvested. Using a proprietary lab technique, our cell biologists then grow these cells in our state-of-the-art facility.
Typically, a patient’s cells grow to 100-1,000 times more than what was initially harvested, and if there are extra stem cells, they can be preserved for future use. The re-injection cycle normally takes place 4 – 6 weeks after your bone marrow aspiration (BMA). During this time, your cells are grown for approximately 10 days and then tested for quality assurance, including sterility testing and karyotype analysis to ensure there are no genetic abnormalities present in your stem cells. Once your cells have passed all safety and quality testing, you will be contacted with your results and invited to schedule the re-injection cycle.
During part 2 of the procedure, the cultured cells are thoroughly tested for quality assurance and re-injected, using guided imaging, to ensure the most precise placement of cells into the injured area.
The Regenexx-C Disc Procedure for spinal disc bulge or herniation is a stem cell injection intended to heal damaged disc tissue, rather than remove it. For many individuals who have considered back surgery, Regenexx has helped put them back to excellent health and a full return to the activities they love. Regenexx-C Disc is the most advanced treatment in the world for treating injured discs and the important spine stabilizers.
With the benefit of modern day science, patients can now take the necessary steps to be proactive with their health, and stem cell cryopreservation can help patients plan for the future.Patient’s cells will then be cultured in our state-of-the-art lab, thoroughly tested for quality assurance by our cell biologists, and safely stored for future use.
