The Catalyst Pain Solutions’ family of hip surgery alternatives are breakthrough, non-surgical stem-cell treatments for people suffering from hip pain due to common injuries, hip arthritis, avascular necrosis, osteonecrosis, hip bursitis or other degenerative problems related to the hip joint. Are you a good candidate for our Regenerative Stem Cell Procedures?

Regenerative Procedures for Hips

At Catalyst Pain Solutions, our Regenerative stem cell procedures begin when the doctor takes some blood from a vein in your arm. These samples are then sent to the lab, which is part of our medical practice. Your cells are processed and then re-injected into the area in need of repair using imaging guidance (real time fluoroscopy or musculoskeletal ultrasound, using your MRI to plan the injection). They can either be processed the same day (U.S.) or cultured over a two-week span to get more cells (culturing only available through a company that has licensed the procedure for use at a Cayman Islands facility).

For the same day procedure, our trained staff uses our advanced clean room lab to isolate the mesenchymal stem cells sample. These cells are then injected back into the injured area on the same day, with natural growth factors found in your blood platelets. The goal is to deliver much greater numbers of stem cells to the injured area than your body would deliver on its own. For more detail about the procedure, see the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s).

What makes Catalyst Pain Solutions’ Regenerative Stem Cell Procedures different than other same-day stem cell procedures being offered? First, we don’t use a one size fits all centrifuge to prepare cells, we use a sophisticated lab that is part of our medical practice. Second, while some practices add platelet rich plasma to their stem cell concentrate, we use a proprietary “super platelet” mix. The birth of this “super platelet” mix was a series of lab experiments we ran in 2009. By mixing lab prepared PRP (slow release growth factors) and platelet lysate (immediately available growth factors), we were able to get adult stem cells to grow many times more than just PRP or platelet lysate alone.

2013 Regenerative Hip Patient Outcome Data

Efficacy and Safety of Bone Marrow Concentrate for Osteoarthritis of the Hip;
Treatment Registry Results for 196 Patients

Introduction: We investigated the efficacy and safety of autologous bone marrow concentrate (BMC) for the treatment of symptomatic hip osteoarthritis.

Methods: Treatment registry data for 216 hips treated among 196 patients who underwent a BMC procedure for hip osteoarthritis (OA) were analyzed. Data regarding adverse events (AEs), subjective percentage improvement, Oxford Hip Scores (OHS), and numeric pain scale (NPS) scores were assessed and compared to baseline at 1, 3, 6 months, and annually after treatment.

Results: The mean reported subjective percentage improvement across all 216 treated hips was 30.2%. The mean OHS change was 6.4 points improved (p<0.001). The NPS scores from baseline to post treatment decreased from 4.5 to 3.3 (p<0.001). Twelve AEs were reported, none of which were serious or persisting. Patients ≤ 55 years old were substantially more likely to report improvement on the OHS [OR: 11.1 (1.6-77.8)] and also more likely to report greater than 50% improvement on the subjective percentage improvement scale [OR: 2.8 (1.2-6.7)].

Conclusion: The present study of BMC injections for hip OA demonstrated encouraging results for improved outcomes with no significant complications. We found that patients younger than 55 years old were more likely to report improvement on the OHS and subjective percentage improvement scales. Further study with randomized trials is warranted to confirm the reported results.

New Research Study on Regenexx Shoulder Stem Cell Treatments

Regenexx Stem Cell Procedure for Rotator Cuff on The Doctors TV 7-15-2014

The July 15th 2014 episode of The Doctor’s features a former two time Olympic pairs figure skater medalist, Lloyd Eisler who has had a failed rotator cuff surgery. Lloyd injured his shoulders while spending a lifetime lifting his skating partners and had a surgery several years ago. Now a father and active Hockey player, he reinjured his rotator cuff and was told he needed another surgery. His wife (the original Buffy the Vampire Slayer actress-Kristy Swanson) knew an actor colleague who used the Regenexx procedure to successfully treat his rotator cuff, so Lloyd chose a non-surgical route this time.

NBC TV Tells a Patient’s Story Following a Regenexx Same-Day Stem Cell Injection Procedure

Seattle King TV recently featured Regenexx patient Paul Lyon in this news segment. Lyon chose to undergo a Regenexx-SD procedure, rather than an invasive and traumatic joint replacement surgery. The story looks at his results and includes an interview with Dr. Christopher Centeno, founder of the Regenexx Procedures.
