What is the Regeneris BioSpine?
The Regeneris BioSpine is the result of a procedure that targets the patient’s own cells to repair damage. This approach builds on the established field of cellular therapies that have proven valuable for a variety of medical purposes today. Our stromal vascular stem cell and platelet rich plasma treatments help patients to recover from various conditions, including arthritis. The Regeneris BioSpine is a minimally-invasive procedure using injections that can be performed on an outpatient basis using local anesthesia.
Don’t Operate – Regenerate!
Back, neck, and spine pain can really put a strain on daily life activities and may prevent you from living life to its fullest. If you are experiencing pain in your back, neck, or spine, you may be a candidate for the The Regeneris BioSpine™ procedure. Surgery and steroids are possible solutions for the pain, but for these treatments patients must commit to strict and lengthy recoveries. Regeneris Medical® offers a minimally-invasive procedure that uses cells from your own body to heal your damaged joint, offering relief with an injection rather than with surgery.
Benefits of the Regeneris BioSpine over Surgery or Steroid Epidurals
There are numerous reasons why The Regeneris BioSpine might be a better choice than surgery:
Surgery, which is often performed under general anesthesia increases a patient’s risk of complications during and after surgery. General anesthesia is also more likely to cause side effects like nausea and vomiting and extends the recovery process. The Regeneris BioSpine is performed using local anesthesia, reducing many of those risks.
Time in Hospital
The Regeneris BioSpine procedure is usually performed on an outpatient basis, which means you return home a few hours after your treatment to recover in the comfort of your home. A spinal/back operation requires a hospital stay of 1-2 days, and a full recovery time of about 8 months.
Recovery from spinal surgery is extensive and often painful. For most patients, it takes at least 6 to 8 months before any true relief can be felt after the surgery and only after to committing to a strict strength training regimen to regain strength in the joint. Regeneris BioSpine patients are instructed to refrain from rigorous physical activity for about two weeks, although gradual stretches and exercises are encouraged almost right away in order to keep the joint mobile after treatment.
Surgery on the spine can cause more problems for a patient than it can solve. Operations performed on the spine and steroid epidurals tend to carry higher risk, due to the various side effects of invasive procedures. Efficacy of the Regeneris BioSpine differs for each patient, so the amount of time before a patient needs another injection varies. The natural growth factors that are the foundation of our procedure lessen the occurrence of unfavorable side effects, and recovery times are shorter than other procedures.
The Regeneris BioSpine procedure 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. The stem cells are then taken from the tissue and injected into the knee joint.
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 heals tendons, muscles, ligaments and joints. PRP has been used as a dental and cosmetic therapy since the 1990s and more recently, has shown significant benefit in the medical realm.
About the Procedure
The Regeneris BioSpine procedure is performed in our office on an outpatient basis, starting with the extraction of fat to collect the necessary stem cells. Blood is also drawn to process the PRP that will be administered along with the stem cells. Under local anesthesia, the stem cells and platelet rich plasma are injected directly into the injured joint. In most cases, patients will only require one treatment session to achieve their full results.
You should be able to return to all of your regular activities within 1-2 days after your Regeneris BioSpine procedure. Positive results develop over time as the natural healing process takes place. Your relief should last about 7-10 years at which point, you may need another Regeneris BioSpine procedure to maintain your improved comfort and range of motion in the joint.
The Regeneris BioSpine procedure is considered a new field of medicine, but experts of the technology estimate this procedure could eliminate the need for spine surgery at some point in the future. Regeneris Medical® is currently looking for patients to participate in this new field and see for themselves the potential benefits of this non-invasive approach to joint degeneration.

Commonly Affected Areas
Our regenerative orthopedic patients are seeking stem cell therapy in the following areas:
The face is the only part of our body we cannot hide. It conveys our emotions and innermost feelings. Usually the face is first area in which people notice signs of aging. The Regeneris Cellu-Lift and the Regeneris Face Lift work to naturally rejuvenate the entire face, as opposed to more traditional solutions that target treatments of individual areas.
For women who are thinking about a neck lift but don’t want surgery, we offer the Regeneris Neck Lift as well as PRP and SVF injections with fat grafts along the jaw bone to lift and sculpt. Results typically last around 18 months to several years, all without ever going under the knife.
Shoulder pain can cause reduced range of motion and prevent patients from engaging fully in daily life, and can be caused by 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 hand and elbow can be debilitating, and can prevent patients from participating in activities of daily living. Potential has been discovered in application of cellular therapies for pain in the hand and elbow caused by arthritis, tendonitis, or other conditions.
Injury, arthritis, and other degenerative conditions can cause this kind of pain, and can prevent patients from walking or moving comfortably. Fortunately, treatments for joint pain of the foot and ankle can benefit from the potential of cellular therapies.
Neck and back pain can have many causes, two of the most common being degenerative disk disease and facet arthropathy. Pain can also be caused by arthritis of the facet joints, the small joints where vertebra connect to their adjacent neighboring vertebrae.
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.
