what is Regenexx?
Regenexx is an innovative procedure that works by administering a high concentration of cells to an area in order to promote the body’s natural healing process. Cellular therapy commonly consists of bone marrow concentrate (BMC) and/or microfragmented adipose tissue (MFAT). Both BMC and MFAT are FDA-compliant.
Both acute and chronic joint conditions and injuries can be treated with Regenexx cellular therapy. Not all cellular medicines are created equal and Regenexx relies on propriety, research-based techniques to treat damaged tissues. At Interventional Orthopedics of Atlanta, Dr. Christopher Williams offers this advanced procedure to restore joint strength and mobility. Dr. Williams is trained with years in advanced regenerative medicine research and practice to offer patients a highly-skilled procedure that is customized to your unique concerns. After properly identifying if you are an ideal candidate for the treatment, Dr. Williams will create a unique Regenexx procedure plan specifically for you.

What are the benefits of Regenexx?
Although surgery can be used to heal tissue damage and common conditions that cause chronic pain, invasive procedures come with a long list of potential complications. These include infection, bleeding, nerve damage, and even pain. It also takes weeks or months to recover from surgery, and long-term results are not always guaranteed. On the other hand, Regenexx procedures are nonsurgical and only involve injections directly to the treatment area. Dr. Williams can review a more comprehensive list of benefits during a consultation.
is regenexx right for me?
Regenexx can be an ideal treatment for individuals suffering from a joint injury, a fracture that will not properly heal, or joint pain. It can also be beneficial when other forms of treatment prove to be ineffective. Regenexx can be administered to various areas of the body, including the hips, spine, arms, wrists, knees, and ankles. Prior to recommending Regenexx treatment, Dr. Williams will conduct a thorough examination to determine if you are an ideal candidate for the procedure.
What Conditions Can Be Treated With Regenexx?
By offering advanced regenerative medicine treatments like Regenexx, Dr. Williams can provide patients with long-lasting relief from chronic joint pain and other conditions that were once considered untreatable with traditional medications or surgery. Regenexx can be used to address a variety of issues such as:
- Joint injuries
- Spine pain
- Overuse conditions
- Common sports injuries like tennis elbow
how is a Regenexx Treatment performed?
Before beginning the Regenexx procedure, cells are either extracted via bone marrow aspiration or minilipoaspiration and then a flexible laboratory platform to concentrate cells based upon the specific condition being treated. With the use of advanced imaging technology, Dr. Williams will then inject the cells into the precise location being treated. Utilizing image guidance allows for much more consistent procedures and optimal results. After the injections are administered, you may need to be monitored for a short period of time before you will able to return home to recover.
is there any downtime with a regenexx treatment?
One of the main benefits of Regenexx over a more invasive procedure is that there is no real downtime associated with this treatment. However, some patients may experience some slight soreness and tenderness for some time after the injection process. Depending on the severity and extent of your condition being treated, you may require a series of treatments to maintain ideal results. We always encourage you to contact our facility at any point during your recovery if you have any questions or concerns regarding the area that was treated. During regular follow-up appointments, Dr. Williams will make any necessary adjustments to your Regenexx procedure plan.
Can you treat more than one area at a time with Regenexx?
Yes, you can. Regenexx is a platform technology that allows us to treat multiple areas of the body. This is important because it means that we can address the source of your pain and improve your function faster. Interventional Orthopedics of Atlanta can create an individualized plan during your consultation.
How is Regenexx different than surgery?
Regenexx utilizes your body's natural healing response to treat injuries. Instead of incisions in the affected area, we only require a simple blood draw. Dr. Williams can perform the Regenexx procedure in a short amount of time and with virtually no recovery period. Patients can return to regular activities much sooner.
What should I expect during a blood draw?
The blood draw is a fast and simple procedure. One of our team members will use a tiny needle to collect a small amount of your blood for Regenexx. You may feel a slight pinch when the needle is inserted, but the process will be over before you know it.
Is Regenexx safe?
Options like surgery and medication come with a long list of risks and side effects. Regenexx is a good alternative with little to no risk of complications. The procedure has been used on countless patients at OAV with great success. Our professionals are proud to offer this innovative treatment to our patients.
How long does a Regenexx procedure take?
Regenexx is a same-day procedure — so you can return to normal activities quickly after treatment. However, we encourage patients to set aside some time for the consultation and blood draw. You may also want time to relax after the procedure, but there is no need for a lengthy recovery period.
