Regenexx® Stem Cell & Platelet Procedures for Elbow Injuries, Overuse Conditions and Arthritis
Regenexx® Stem Cell & Platelet Rich Plasma Procedures are the world’s most advanced regenerative injection treatments for treating arthritis, overuse conditions such as tennis elbow or golfer’s elbow, and other conditions that cause elbow pain.
If you are experiencing elbow pain, Regenexx Procedures are likely an excellent treatment option. In recent years, several studies have shown the effectiveness of platelet rich plasma in treating elbow tendon and ligament issues. In fact, these studies are so decisive that at this point in time, there are very few cases where surgery would be recommended for anything but the most severe elbow injuries.
Commonly Treated Elbow Conditions
This is not a complete list, so please contact us or complete the Regenexx Candidate Form if you have questions about whether you or your condition can be treated with these non-surgical procedures.
- Lateral Epicondylitis – Also known as Tennis Elbow
- Medial Epicondylitis – Also known as Golfer’s Elbow
- Nerve entrapment (ulnar nerve)
Regenexx Procedure Safety Data
The information below applies to our safety data on stem cell procedures. Most elbow conditions are treated with platelet rich plasma, which is a far less complex treatment than our stem cell procedure, which requires a bone marrow draw as part of the process (and also includes a platelet rich plasma post-injection).

More than 169,200 highly specific image-guided Regenexx® Procedures have been performed since Regenexx pioneered the field of interventional orthopedics, using bone marrow concentrate to treat common orthopedic problems in 2005.
The published research on Regenexx procedures accounts for approximately 44% of the world’s research on the use of bone marrow concentrate for orthopedic conditions (cumulative n of patients published & treated with bone marrow concentrate as of 1/1/2019)
How Regenexx Procedures Work
Bone Marrow Concentrate
Regenexx-SD is Bone Marrow Concentrate, which contains 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.
