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.
