Extensive Clinical Studies & Research
Regenexx® Stem Cell & Platelet Rich Plasma Procedures are the world’s most advanced regenerative injection treatments for treating foot and ankle conditions. Before you consider ankle surgery, fusion or replacement, consider the world’s leading stem cell and prp injection treatments.
Patient Outcome Data & Commonly Treated Ankle & Foot Conditions
Foot and Ankle Patient Outcome DataView Foot and Ankle Patient Outcome Data
This data analysis is part of the 2015 download of patient results tracked in our advanced treatment registry. The data shown here is predominantly for ankle patients that have on average moderate to severe arthritis with some also having instability in the ligaments and/or tendinitis/tendon tears. A few small foot joint patients are also included in this data set.
Commonly Treated Ankle & Foot Conditions
This is not a complete list, so please contact us or complete the Regenexx Candidate Form if you have questions about whether you or your condition can be treated with these non-surgical procedures.
- Ankle Instability
- Peroneal tendon tear or split
- Ligament sprain or tear
- Sub-talar arthritis or instability
- Tarsal tunnel syndrome
- Plantar fasciitis
More than 96,350 Regenexx® Procedures have been performed since Regenexx pioneered orthopedic stem cell treatments in 2005. Regenexx Procedures are the most advanced orthopedic stem cell procedures in the world.
The published research on Regenexx procedures accounts for approx. 44% of the world’s orthopedic stem cell literature (cumulative n of patients published & treated with bone marrow stem cells as of 1/1/2019)
How Regenexx Procedures Work
Stem Cell Treatments
Same Day Stem Cell Protocol
Adult stem cells are the cells from your own body which can restore themselves and transform into other cells (modify). They exist inside all of us in different tissues, collected to spring into action for repairing damage when it occurs. As we grow old or have significant injuries, we might not be able to obtain plenty of these stem cells to the site to completely repair the affected area. Regenexx Stem Cell Procedures aid the process of overcoming this problem through the extraction of stem cells from an abundant area and then concentrating these cells by reinjecting them into the affected area to allow the body naturally heal. The Patented Stem Cell Procedures at RegenOrthoSport can be used for a broad array of conditions and are the medium of choice for arthritis, injuries, and other conditions that might be more vital than what may be employed with our Platelet Lysate Procedures or Platelet Rich Plasma.
Blood Platelet Treatments
Super Concentrated Platelet Rich Plasma & Advanced Platelet Lysate Procedures
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Platelet Lysate Injection Treatments include healing growth components from your blood that increase your body’s natural ability to repair itself. The use of PRP to improve joint, tendon, ligament and muscle injuries is becoming well known, thanks to exposure from professional athletes. Platelet injection treatments are useful because they have a stimulating impact on the stem cells in the targeted area, which makes these stem cells operate harder to heal the damaged tissues. Our Advanced Platelet Procedures are extra refined and concentrated than those generated by the automated machines used at most of the regenerative medicine polyclinics. Platelet procedures are generally used for mild arthritis, soft tissue injuries, and spine conditions.
Ankle Ligament Tears, Sprains and Instability of the Ankle Joint
When the ligaments that hold the bones of the ankle joint together are partially torn or stretched, as in the case of a bad sprain or repeated minor sprains, they can become painful, loose, and weak. This changes how you walk, putting painful stress on other joints of the foot, as well as making it more likely that you will sprain the ankle again. This leads to a cycle of chronic pain and instability.
Ankle sprains and injuries that are not too severe, may be resolved with Regenexx super concentrated PRP (platelet rich plasma) procedures. These procedures are intended to help heal damaged tissues and tighten lax ligaments due to sprain. For more substantial injuries an tears, our stem cell protocol may be recommended.
Considering Ankle Surgery, Fusion or Replacement?
Osteoarthritis of the ankle usually occurs in ankles that have experienced trauma, infection, or injury. A smooth, slippery, fibrous connective tissue, called articular cartilage, acts as a protective cushion between bones. Arthritis develops as the cartilage begins to deteriorate or is lost. As the articular cartilage is lost, the joint space between the bones narrows. This is an early symptom of osteoarthritis of the ankle and is easily seen on X-rays.
As the disease progresses, the cartilage thins, becoming grooved and fragmented. The surrounding bones react by becoming thicker. They start to grow outward and form spurs. The synovium (a membrane that produces a thick fluid that helps nourish the cartilage and keep it slippery) becomes inflamed and thickened. It may produce extra fluid, which causes additional swelling.
As an alternative to surgery, fusion or replacement, Regenexx Procedures may help alleviate pain with a non-surgical injection procedure. Patients are often encouraged to walk the same day, and most experience little to no down time from the procedure.
