Q. What’s the future for stem cell treatments in orthopedics?

A. Regenexx has a team of bioengineers and a network of doctors that have new ideas they are bringing to the research department on a weekly basis. We are starting to figure out more sophisticated ways to deal with our patients’ orthopedic problems that will change the specialty of orthopedics. Just like interventional cardiology was developed after cardiothoracic surgery to create minimally invasive catheter procedures to avoid open-heart surgery (placing a cardiac stent, for instance), we are developing interventional orthopedics, which are office-based, minimally invasive needle procedures to replace orthopedic surgery procedures commonly done in the hospital.
