Regenexx® Non-Surgical Hip Treatment

For Hip Injuries, Arthritis, Bursitis and Other Degenerative Conditions.

Am I a Candidate?

If you’re looking for an alternative to hip surgery, you’ve found something better! The Regenexx® family of hip surgery alternatives are breakthrough, non-surgical bone marrow concentrate, and platelet-based treatments for people suffering from hip pain due to common injuries, hip arthritis, avascular necrosis, osteonecrosis, hip bursitis, or other degenerative problems related to the hip joint.  It uses the body’s natural ability to heal itself.

Regenexx procedures offer a non-surgical treatment option for many patients who are considering elective surgeries to resolve their hip pain. Regenexx may help treat and alleviate hip problems with a same-day injection procedure by amplifying the concentration of a person’s own bone marrow concentrate in the problem area, improving the body’s ability to heal itself naturally.

Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS)

isorders that affect and weaken the connective tissues such as tendons and ligaments. It is a hereditary disorder which means you are born with it.  EDS has many different signs and symptoms which can vary significantly depending upon the type of EDS and its severity.   It most commonly affects the skin, joints, and blood vessels.  Joints are typically hypermobile with excessive joint range of motion because of a defect in collagen formation. In most cases Ehlers-Danlos syndrome is inherited. That is to say that you are born with it. The two main ways EDS is inherited are: autosomal dominant inheritance and autosomal recessive inheritance…

Gluteal Tendinopathy

Tendinopathy is a group of tendon disorders.  The most common form of Tendinopathy is Tendinosis (1).  Tendinosis is a degenerative condition that is characterized by collagen degeneration and micro-trauma in the tendon due to repetitive overloading.   Gluteal Tendinopathy is a clinical condition in which there is moderate to severe debilitating pain due to injury of the Gluteal tendons. It is the most common Tendinopathy in the lower leg (2) and is more common in women (3).  In most cases, physical examination alone is sufficient to diagnose Gluteal Tendinopathy.  If symptoms continue despite conservative care, other studies may be warranted which include ultrasound and MRI.

Hip Labral / Labrum tear

A tear in the hip labrum can cause a number of different symptoms.  The most common is anterior hip or groin pain which may radiate down to the level of the knee (3).  Pain develops gradually and typically is dull in character made worse with walking, pivoting and running.  Hip labral tears are easily seen on MRI.  Unfortunately, it’s importance as a source of pain must be questioned.  Why?  Research has demonstrated that many patients with no hip pain have labral tears on MRI (4-5).   In one study, Duthon et al demonstrated that 69% of patients without hip pain had labral tears.

Interstitial Cystitis

Interstitial Cystitis has been called many names, such as Painful Bladder Syndrome, Urethral Syndrome, Trigonitis, and Bladder Pain Syndrome. Some characterize it into Hunner Lesion Interstitial Cystitis, which is described as having irritating lesions on the bladder wall seen with cystoscopy (scope looking into the bladder) or Non-Hunner Lesion Interstitial Cystitis, in which no such lesions on cystoscopy. The cause or etiology of the disease is not known or not clearly recognized.IC or BPS predominantly affects women with an average age of onset of 40 years or older. It does affect men, but it’s less common, and very rarely would affect children.

Cynthia C.

Everyone at Regenexx, at the Centeno-Schultz Clinic, were very kind and respectful. Dr. Pitts was the greatest! I appreciated his expertise and his sense of humor. I also appreciated that he respected my modesty. I had stem cell injections in my knees and right hip, with a follow up of PRP a couple of days later. The results, especially in my knees, have been incredible! My knees feel 95% better than before, and it has only been 8 weeks in the treatments. I would totally do this again, and I would totally go back to Dr. Pitts at Centeno-Schultz!
