Don’t Operate – Regenerate!
Although pain medication is the first remedy that comes to mind when feeling pain in the hip joint, followed by more pain medication and eventually surgical hip replacement, for some patients this approach is not good enough. Regeneris Medical remains on the cutting-edge of cellular therapies, and now offers the Regeneris Hip protocol, a minimally-invasive alternative research protocol which we hope to someday be the new standard in joint therapy.
Benefits of the Regeneris Hip Protocol over Traditional Hip Replacement
There are numerous reasons why the Regeneris Hip protocol might be a better choice than a total hip replacement (or THR):
THR which is typically performed under general anesthesia, which can increase a patient’s risk of complications during and after surgery. General anesthesia is also more likely to cause side effects like nausea and vomiting which can extend through the recovery process. The
Time in Hospital
A Regeneris Hip protocol is usually performed on an outpatient basis, which means you can return home a few hours after your treatment to recover in the comfort of your home. A total hip replacement operation requires a hospital stay of 1-2 weeks, increasing the risk for a postoperative infection and also making the procedure much more expensive.
Recovery from a THR is extensive and often painful. For most patients, it takes up to six months before any true relief can be felt after the surgery and only after to committing to a strict strength training regimen and physical therapy to regain strength in the joint. Regeneris Hip protocol patients are instructed to refrain from
A hip replacement typically lasts 10-20 years, at which time you will need to undergo another major surgical procedure so as to remove the old device and replace it with another. These consecutive procedures tend to carry higher risk, since there may be damage done to bone and tissue from the first procedure which then complicates the process. The
The Regeneris Hip protocol involves two distinct, state-of-the-art technologies:
Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF)
This technology is used to extract stem cells from autologous fat tissue, rather than blood or bone marrow. Removing stem cells through this method results in a much higher yield of the cells, which produces the best possible outcome from your procedure. The autologous fat is removed from the body via a minimally-invasive liposuction procedure under local anesthesia.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
This substance in your blood contains a high concentration of growth factors that stimulate the body’s healing response. When administered to an injured area, the platelets create an environment that can induce healing of the tendons, muscles, ligaments and joints. PRP has been used as a dental and cosmetic therapy since the 1990s and more recently, has shown potential benefit in the medical realm.
About the Protocol
You should be able to return to most of your regular activities within 1-2 days of the Regeneris Hip protocol. The injected cells should immediately begin secreting growth factors to stimulate healing and dependent on the amount of regeneration that ensues, the results may vary but could last years. As you continue to age, you may need another Hip protocol to maintain your improved comfort and range of motion in the joint. The timing and efficacy of this process are currently been looked at more closely in our research protocols.
Commonly Affected Areas
Our regenerative orthopedic patients are seeking stem cell therapy in the following areas:
Several common causes of knee pain have shown
Hip pain can restrict mobility and prevent sufferers from enjoying activities of daily life. Hip surgery is often offered as a
Shoulder pain can cause reduced range of motion and prevent patients from engaging fully in daily life. Common causes of shoulder pain include trauma or injury, arthritis, and other degenerative and age-related conditions. Those who suffer from shoulder pain can avoid costly and painful surgeries with cellular therapies.
Pain in the elbows, hands, and wrist can be
Pain in the foot and ankle can feel especially debilitating due to it directly inhibiting mobility. Injury, arthritis, and other degenerative conditions can cause this kind of
Neck and back pain can have many causes, two of the most common being degenerative disk disease and facet arthropathy. Some forms of back pain can also be caused by arthritis of the facet joints, the small joints where vertebra connect to their adjacent neighboring vertebrae. Fortunately, cellular therapies for
Ready to Get Started?
Whether you are experiencing pain as a result of injury or trauma, or if a condition such as arthritis has made it difficult to stand, walk, or run, our doctors can discuss your candidacy for regenerative treatments as well as answer any other questions you may have. Each case is unique, so personal consultations and customized treatment plans are determined based on your condition and goals.
