Targeted Procedure for Thumb Basal Joint / CMC Arthritis and Other Hand / Wrist Conditions
Thumb CMC/Basal Joint Arthritis or Arthritis of the Hand Joints can appear early in life. The constant swiveling and pivoting motions of the basal joint, at the base of the thumb, tends to wear it out easily. While total joint reconstruction surgery may improve the condition for some, new problems in the thumb joint may develop over time, causing such symptoms as numbness, tenderness, or reduced range of motion.
This highly specialized, precise, image guided Regenexx procedure performed only by very specially trained Regenexx Physicians for CMC Arthritis and other injuries and conditions in the hand and wrist utilizes concentrated repair cells that are obtained from your own bone marrow or blood to promote your body’s own natural ability to heal.
How Regenexx Procedures Work
Bone Marrow Concentrate
Regenexx-SD is Bone Marrow Concentrate, which contains your own live stem cells. These repair cells from your own body live inside all of us in various tissues, poised to leap into action to repair damage as it occurs. As we age or have big injuries, we may not be able to recruit enough of these cells to the site to fully repair the area. The Regenexx-SD Procedure helps overcome this problem by harvesting Bone Marrow from an area of the back of the hip that contains a dense population of these important cells and then concentrating those cells before precisely injecting them into the injured area using advanced imaging guidance. The goal of the procedure is to reduce pain and improve function by promoting the body’s own ability to heal naturally. This Patented Bone Marrow Concentrate Protocol can be used for a wide range of orthopedic conditions. Your Regenexx doctor will evaluate your condition and your imaging to determine whether a bone marrow concentrate or platelet-based treatment is the best option for your orthopedic condition.
Super Concentrated Platelet Rich Plasma & Platelet Lysate Procedures
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Platelet Lysate are Platelet procedures that contain healing growth factors from your own blood that promote your body’s natural ability to repair itself. The use of PRP to treat joint, tendon, ligament, and muscle injuries is becoming well known, thanks to exposure from professional athletes. Platelet injections have a stimulating effect on the repair cells within the targeted area, making those cells work harder to perform their natural job of healing the body. Like all Regenexx procedures, Regenexx SCP procedures are performed with high-level imaging guidance to ensure the most accurate placements of cells into the desired area. Our Advanced Platelet Procedures are more concentrated and purer than PRP created by the automated machines used at most regenerative medicine clinics, increasing its ability to stimulate the body’s natural healing response. Platelet procedures are commonly used for soft tissue injuries, mild arthritis, spine conditions, and around nerves.
