Stem Cell Treatment for Full or Partial ACL Tears

Receive a Regenexx® Patient Info Packet by Email

The Regenexx® patented stem cell procedure for ACL tears was developed to treat full and partial anterior cruciate ligament tears non-surgically. ACL tears are one of the more common knee injuries we treat and many non-retracted full and partial tears can be treated in all but the most serious cases.

Regenexx ACL offers a viable alternative for individuals who may be considering surgery due to a partial or complete non-retracted ACL tear. Our patients avoid the lengthy periods of downtime and painful ACL surgery rehabilitation that follows traditional invasive anterior cruciate ligament surgeries. One of the big downsides of ACL surgery is the time away from playing. Most athletes don’t get back before 6 months and at that point they’re lucky to be at 50% of where they were before the injury. The common lore is that ACL ligament tears don’t heal, but recent advances in stem cell technology have shown MRI evidence of ligaments that weren’t supposed to heal, looking more like normal ligaments after a precise stem cell injection than a torn one. With Regenexx, the fact that you can exercise earlier and your muscles don’t atrophy, usually results in a faster return to your sport.
How We're Able to Treat ACL Tears Through a Needle

As a leader in interventional orthopedics and non-surgical knee stem cell treatments, the Regenexx team is pioneering the most sophisticated methods to accurately cannulate the ACL through a needle (via fluoroscopy and needle arthroscopy). This innovative procedure uses various Regenexx biologics procedures such as Regenexx SCP (super concentrated platelet rich plasma) or bone marrow derived stem cells to target the ACL tear using sophisticated fluoroscopic imaging and guidance. In the occasional case when a patient’s MRI is not clear enough to determine candidacy, a “quick look” needle arthroscopy can be used to determine if the ACL fibers are still intact enough for the procedure to be successful. This needle arthroscopy allows us to look through the end of a needle, rather than the much larger traditional surgical arthroscope.

Your ACL Tear & Why Regenexx Procedures May Be a Better Option

The Benefits of Stem Cells Over Surgery

The ACL is a major stabilizer of the knee. When it’s torn, traditional thinking has been that it will not heal, so surgery is often used to replace the torn ligament. However, along with most surgical procedures, ACL surgery has it’s issues. First, the graft goes in at a steeper angle than the original ACL, causing more compression of the cartilage. For this reason, most young adults who get the surgery will end up with arthritis by age 30. In addition, the position sense and strength of the knee is often never the same. Obviously, the best possible scenario for a torn ACL would be to heal the ligament in place. The Regenexx patented stem cell procedure is intended to do just that. We regularly see good patient results, as well as visual confirmation of healing on follow-up MRIs.

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.

I am a 70+ male who had accepted dibillitating shoulder pain as a given for the rest of my life. 2 surgeons told me that shoulder replacement was my only option and that would not address my arthritis pain.

When I heard about Regenexx and Regen Ortho Sport, I was skeptical to say the least. After much research, I contacted Regen and had an MRI on both shoulders. I spoke with Dr. Movva and he told me the procedure would help me but couldn't guarantee the range of motion I had as a teenager.

I had the procedure in both shoulders and the arthritis pain was gone within 2 weeks. I have full range of motion in both shoulders within 4 months-PAIN FREE!!. Pain no longer wakes me up at night.

The results seem too good to be true but they are true. All the staff made me feel right at home from the beginning - I couldn't ask for a better experience.



This technology is amazing. My knees are really good - no pain. I had them done in February. Have stem cells - please don’t have knee replacements.



Went here on a friend's referral to have stem cells pulled from my back and placed into my knees. The staff is amazing and patient. I had lots of questions and several scheduling issues. Dr. Movva was very gracious as well. I'll update this post 6 months from now to see if I can feel a healing going on.



I had been experiencing severe ankle pain for almost two years. I was barely able to walk 100 feet without having to rest. It was determined that I had several issues, arthritis, ligament damage, and bone spurs. I was hoping for some relief, maybe within a few months. To my amazement, after the fourth day, my pain was almost completely gone! This is day six and I just walked half a mile, PAIN FREE. This result is beyond my wildest expectation. Great job doc !!!
