Is surgery the only option?

We provide a non-surgical alternative that uses your own cells to repair the damage.

The ankle is a weight bearing hinge synovial joint formed by three bones. It is prone to injuries especially in sports people which lead to instability and chronic pain. The stabilising ligaments around the ankle take a longer time to heal and frequently need immobilisation and rest. The common injuries around the ankle are collateral ligament tears and sprains, cartilage damage and bursitis.

The foot is made up of a complex articulation of many bones and ligaments. The common foot problems include plantar fasciitis, peroneal and calcaneal tendinitis. Conservative management involves rest, medications, physiotherapy, ice packs and braces. In refractory patients, steroid injections were the treatment of choice with added physiotherapy. It reduces inflammation at the site of injury but leads to the degeneration, attrition and tear of tendons at the site of the injection. In addition, we have very little evidence that open or arthroscopic surgery offers additional benefit but it is invasive and has the risk of infection, tissue damage and nerve injury. This alteration subsequently causes knee, hip, and back pain as a result of additional and unintended strain due tom altered biomechanics. These surgeries also involve a painful post surgical recovery with a lengthy rehab period to restore strength and mobility.

At ReGen, we offer an alternative to elbow surgery. We use image guidance to inject concentrated stem cells or platelets from your body directly where they are needed. These cells then work in the site of your injury and repair damaged tissues and achieves positive outcomes for the patient. This innovative procedure restores elbow function and mobility and decreases pain without the need for surgery by regenerating damaged tissues. We help alleviate elbow pain and restore joint damage with a non-invasive injection procedure. The recuperation time is less than half that of surgery, with reduced rehab period and earlier return to work and activities.
