Stem Cell Treatment for Full or Partial ACL Tears

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.

Regenexx treats partial and full ACL tears that are not significantly retracted

Regenexx procedures are focused on treating full and partial tears that are non-retracted.
