Regenexx® Procedures for Elbow Injuries, Overuse Conditions, and Arthritis

Regenexx Procedures are highly specialized non-surgical, image-guided injection-based procedures performed only by very specially trained Regenexx Physicians for elbow arthritis, overuse conditions such as tennis elbow or golfer’s elbow, and other conditions that cause elbow pain. These procedures utilize concentrated repair cells that are obtained from your own bone marrow or blood to promote your body’s own natural ability to heal.

If you are experiencing elbow pain, Regenexx Procedures using the healing agents from your own body may be a good treatment option. In recent years, several studies have demonstrated good results of platelet-rich plasma in treating elbow tendon and ligament issues.

Commonly Treated Elbow 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.

  • Elbow Osteoarthritis
  • Instability
  • Lateral Epicondylitis – A.K.A Tennis Elbow
  • Medial Epicondylitis – A.K.A Golfer’s Elbow
  • Nerve entrapment (ulnar nerve)

Regenexx Procedure Safety Data

The information below applies to our safety data on bone marrow concentrate procedures. Most elbow conditions are treated with platelet rich plasma, which is a far less complex treatment than our bone marrow concentrate procedure, which requires a bone marrow draw as part of the process (and also includes a platelet rich plasma post-injection).

The Interventional Orthopedics Solution For Elbow Problems

Elbow Problems Report ImageThe elbow is a critical joint in the musculoskeletal system. It doesn’t have to bear weight, like a knee or ankle does; however, think of all the things you wouldn’t be able to do if you couldn’t bend your arm: button your shirt, drive a car, pick up a baby, and so on. Elbow injuries are well known in many sports participants, including tennis, golf, and other sports that create stress on this joint. Experiencing pain or inflammation in this important joint can make it difficult to perform many standard daily activities.

Download this report and learn how the concept of using the healing agents from your own body with Regenexx blood platelet procedures is backed by research that demonstrates that Interventional Orthopedic Regenerative Medicine treatment options may be a smart alternative to treating elbow pain via surgery in a majority of circumstances.

How Regenexx Procedures Work

Regenexx-SD

Bone Marrow Concentrate

Regenexx-SD is Bone Marrow Concentrate, which contains stem cells. These repair cells from your own body live inside all of us in various tissues, poised to leap into action to repair damage as it occurs. As we age or have big injuries, we may not be able to recruit enough of these cells to the site to fully repair the area. The Regenexx-SD Procedure helps overcome this problem by harvesting Bone Marrow from an area of the back of the hip that contains a dense population of these important cells and then concentrating those cells before precisely injecting them into the injured area using advanced imaging guidance. The goal of the procedure is to reduce pain and improve function by promoting the body’s own ability to heal naturally. This Patented Bone Marrow Concentrate Protocol can be used for a wide range of orthopedic conditions. Your Regenexx doctor will evaluate your condition and your imaging to determine whether a bone marrow concentrate or platelet-based treatment is the best option for your orthopedic condition.

Regenexx SCP

Super Concentrated Platelet Rich Plasma & Platelet Lysate Procedures

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Platelet Lysate are Platelet procedures that contain healing growth factors from your own blood that promote your body’s natural ability to repair itself. The use of PRP to treat joint, tendon, ligament, and muscle injuries is becoming well known, thanks to exposure from professional athletes. Platelet injections have a stimulating effect on the repair cells within the targeted area, making those cells work harder to perform their natural job of healing the body. Like all Regenexx procedures, Regenexx SCP procedures are performed with high-level imaging guidance to ensure the most accurate placements of cells into the desired area. Our Advanced Platelet Procedures are more concentrated and purer than PRP created by the automated machines used at most regenerative medicine clinics, increasing its ability to stimulate the body’s natural healing response. Platelet procedures are commonly used for soft tissue injuries, mild arthritis, spine conditions, and around nerves.
