New Non-Surgical Stem-Cell Procedure Relieves Degenerative Joint Disease

First-of-its-kind procedure from Colorado-based company

DENVER, Nov. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Regenerative Sciences, Inc., has launched its patent-pending Regenexx(TM) procedure, which uses a patient's own stem cells to regenerate bone and cartilage -- a welcome relief for the more than 20 million Americans who suffer from painful and debilitating orthopedic conditions.

Bone marrow was drawn from the patient, and in the next nine days, the marrow was used to grow mesenchymal stem cells, which have the ability to grow into bone, cartilage and muscle tissues. The grown stem cells initially taken from the patient were injected into her knee once a week for the next three weeks. Three months after the procedure, the patient reported that her pain had essentially d
