Regenexx® Non-Surgical Knee Treatment

The Trusted Alternative to Knee Surgery

What Are Regenexx Procedures for Knees?

Regenexx® procedures use sophisticated image-guided injections to place high-dose platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or bone marrow concentrate containing stem cells in critical areas to help the body heal itself. As the headquarters of Regenexx, Centeno-Schultz is where all of these procedures used by our national network began and were invented. These are breakthrough, non-surgical treatments for people suffering from knee pain due to common injuries to the knee meniscus, ACL or MCL, cartilage, or who are experiencing degenerative conditions, such as osteoarthritis. So, if you’re looking for an alternative to surgery for knees in Denver or Boulder, Colorado, then look no further than the Centeno-Schultz Clinic. 

Traditional options for patients suffering from these conditions include arthroscopic knee surgery to repair ligament tears, or total knee joint replacement. With both surgeries, months of rehab are required, and the patient must be aware of and prepared to take on the risks. As an alternative, the Regenexx Same-Day procedure may help alleviate knee pain and the conditions that cause it with a sophisticated office injection procedure.

Looking for alternative to knee surgery?

What you really need are highly precise procedures that place the right cells in all the critical locations they’re needed.

Meniscus Tears

Meniscus tears are one of the most common injuries we treat. The last option anyone should consider for treating a meniscus injury is the surgical removal of all or some of this important structure. Click below to learn why Regenexx is likely a better choice than meniscus surgery.

ACL Tears

Knee ACL tears are a very common injury. The rush to surgery has long been due to the traditional thinking that an ACL will not heal, which is why we offer our ACL surgery alternative. Our experience treating ACL tears with precise image-guided injections into the ACL  has shown that it may be a better option for those who have experienced a partial or complete non-retracted ACL tear.

Knee Arthritis

Knee replacement surgery comes with many serious risks and complications but is often considered to be a straightforward and accepted approach to treatment for those suffering from significant arthritis or injury in this joint. Before you consider knee replacement, learn what our sophisticated image-guided procedures can do for you.

Jim H.

I’ve been a patient of Dr Centeno for over 8 years. I have nothing but the highest complements for his professionalism, insights and overall care. Diagnosed with severe cervical spondylosis over 9 years ago, his semi-annual injections have kept me nearly pain free and clearly helped me avoid a multi-level cervical fusion, at least for the time being.

Your Alternative to Knee Surgery

Surgical options for those dealing with painful knee issues range from arthroscopic knee surgery to total knee joint replacement. Recent research has shown that some of the most popular arthroscopic surgeries have no benefit at all (including meniscus surgery). Knee replacement is extremely traumatic and carries new-found risks of toxic wear particles entering the bloodstream. Surgical risks aside, all surgeries minimally require months of painful rehab to regain strength and mobility. Most surgeries also accelerate the cascade of degeneration that leads to osteoarthritis.

We have seen exciting results on difficult cases, such as complete muscle and ligament tears, and we have helped thousands of patients with severe arthritis avoid knee replacement and continue to do the things they love with little or no pain. Most Regenexx patients experience little or no downtime from their procedure and are encouraged to return to activity as they begin to feel better.


What does the research say about knee replacement?

You might expect that there would be loads of research backing knee replacement, but you would be wrong. Dr. Centeno talks about the research around knee replacement in the video below.

What does it mean when I have knee hyperextension without pain?

There is a difference between having knee hyperextension and having a hyperextension injury. When you have hyperextension in the knee, it could be caused by congenital laxity in the ligaments, poor posture, or a PCL tear, which can lead to arthritis down the road. However, if there is no pain, there is no need for something as invasive as surgery. Dr. Centeno explains this in more detail in the following video:
