Why Regenexx?

Regenexx® Procedures are the world’s most advanced regenerative orthopedic procedures for treating orthopedic injuries, arthritis and other degenerative conditions. Nashville Regenerative Orthopedics is the ONLY Regenexx® provider in the state of Tennessee and patients come from all over the United States to be treated by Dr. Ethan Kellum.

How do Regenexx® Procedures Work?

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. Patients experience very little down time and they typically avoid the long, painful rehabilitation periods that often follow surgery to restore joint strength and mobility.

The Regenexx® Difference

Not all stem cell procedures are created equal, nor are the doctors who perform these procedures. Dr. Ethan Kellum is a part of a very selective, highly-skilled, interventional orthobiologics network that is 100% focused on orthopedic conditions. All Regenexx physicians are musculoskeletal experts with extensive training and experience in the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions, as well as complex, image-guided injections of your body’s own healing agents to treat orthopedic issues.
