Stem Cell Treatment for Full or Partial ACL Tears

The Regenexx® patented stem cell procedure for ACL tears was developed to treat full and partial anterior cruciate ligament tears non-surgically. ACL tears are one of the more common knee injuries we treat and many non-retracted full and partial tears can be treated in all but the most serious cases.

Regenexx ACL offers a viable alternative for individuals who may be considering surgery due to a partial or complete non-retracted ACL tear. Our patients avoid the lengthy periods of downtime and painful ACL surgery rehabilitation that follows traditional invasive anterior cruciate ligament surgeries. One of the big downsides of ACL surgery is the time away from playing. Most athletes don’t get back before 6 months and at that point they’re lucky to be at 50% of where they were before the injury. The common lore is that ACL ligament tears don’t heal, but recent advances in stem cell technology have shown MRI evidence of ligaments that weren’t supposed to heal, looking more like normal ligaments after a precise stem cell injection than a torn one. With Regenexx, the fact that you can exercise earlier and your muscles don’t atrophy, usually results in a faster return to your sport.

How We're Able to Treat ACL Tears Through a Needle

As a leader in interventional orthopedics and non-surgical knee stem cell treatments, the Regenexx team is pioneering the most sophisticated methods to accurately cannulate the ACL through a needle (via fluoroscopy and needle arthroscopy). This innovative procedure uses various Regenexx biologics procedures such as Regenexx SCP (super concentrated platelet rich plasma) or bone marrow derived stem cells to target the ACL tear using sophisticated fluoroscopic imaging and guidance. In the occasional case when a patient’s MRI is not clear enough to determine candidacy, a “quick look” needle arthroscopy can be used to determine if the ACL fibers are still intact enough for the procedure to be successful. This needle arthroscopy allows us to look through the end of a needle, rather than the much larger traditional surgical arthroscope.

Your ACL Tear & Why Regenexx Procedures May Be a Better Option

The Benefits of Stem Cells Over Surgery

The ACL is a major stabilizer of the knee. When it’s torn, traditional thinking has been that it will not heal, so surgery is often used to replace the torn ligament. However, along with most surgical procedures, ACL surgery has it’s issues. First, the graft goes in at a steeper angle than the original ACL, causing more compression of the cartilage. For this reason, most young adults who get the surgery will end up with arthritis by age 30. In addition, the position sense and strength of the knee is often never the same. Obviously, the best possible scenario for a torn ACL would be to heal the ligament in place. The Regenexx patented stem cell procedure is intended to do just that. We regularly see good patient results, as well as visual confirmation of healing on follow-up MRIs.

How Regenexx Procedures Work

Stem Cell Treatments

Same Day Stem Cell Protocol

Adult stem cells are cells from your own body that can renew themselves and turn into other cells (differentiate). They 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. Regenexx Stem Cell Procedures help overcome this problem by extracting stem cells from an area of high volume, then concentrating the cells and reinjecting them into the damaged area to help the body heal naturally. Our Patented Stem Cell Procedures can be used for a wide range of conditions and are the tool of choice for injuries, arthritis and other conditions that may be more significant than what may be treated with our Platelet Rich Plasma or Platelet Lysate Procedures.

Blood Platelet Treatments

Super Concentrated Platelet Rich Plasma & Advanced Platelet Lysate Procedures

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Platelet Lysate Injection Treatments contain healing growth components from your own blood that increase your body’s natural ability to repair itself. The use of PRP to repair joint, tendon, ligament, and muscle injuries is becoming well known, thanks to exposure from professional athletes. Platelet injection treatments are effective because they have a stimulating effect on the stem cells within the targeted area, making those stem cells work harder to heal damaged tissues. Our Advanced Platelet Procedures are more pure and concentrated than those created by the automated machines used at most regenerative medicine clinics. Platelet procedures are commonly used for soft tissue injuries, mild arthritis and spine conditions.

    Before coming to Dr. Bashir, I had multiple injuries including, Knee Shoulder and Neck. Being based in the UK I researched various companies and Dr. Bashir proved to be the ideal fit for the treatment that I was looking for. From the very first call, Dr. Bashir gave me the confidence that he would be able to improve my injuries. His personal service is exemplary. On arrival to Miami, I was impressed by the welcoming atmosphere of the clinic. The treatment was as expected and I look forward to great results.

    Finding Ocyon and Dr. Bashir was truly a Godsend. After experiencing severe whiplash from a car accident 3 years ago, I was diagnosed with a herniated disc. My neck was always stiff and in pain plus I had frequent headaches. I just wanted to avoid surgery and get back to my regular life. Dr. Bashir spent alot of time with me going over my MRI and discussing treatment options. He also educated me on regenerative medicine and gave me a tour of his state of the art facility. The procedure he performed on me was the best thing that ever happened. I was in and out the same day and it was completely painless. Within 1 week my headaches went away and my neck started feeling normal again. After my 1 month follow up visit, he showed me how my hernia had almost completely reduced and there was no longer any pressure on my nerves. I cannot be anymore grateful for Dr. Bashir and all of his very friendly staff. Thank you!

    Dr. Bashir did a wonderful job when it came to my treatment. I came in with back issues and after having a treatment with Dr. Bashir I am now getting the relief that I needed. I am making great improvements and I am very impressed with the healing effect that my body has been able to achieve. Before meeting Dr. Bashir, my sleeping patterns were interrupted constantly and after my procedure, I am able to sleep all night without waking up in pain. I am very confident in the work Dr. Bashir preformed and have had great success with him. I am having improvements of up to 70%. The OCYON team is one of the best that I have encountered. They were very attentive and treated me like if I was part of their family.

    I was involved in two car accidents is 2017, rear ended twice, not my year to say the least! I had done everything to avoid the "knife", so to speak, as I did not want surgery to repair my 4 herniated discs in my neck and my 3 herniated discs in my mid-back as a result of my two car accidents. I tried everything; acupuncture, chiropractor (three different ones), 18 injections in my back with anti-inflamatory and pain medications, and neck decompression therapy. Although these made me fell better the effects lasted only days. I did not know what else to do besides submitting myself to surgery which, in my early 50's with diabetes, high blood pressure and asthmatic, I did not want to do at all costs. I started to my own research on-line and came across Dr. Bashir and his team of healthcare professional and the work he was doing with platelet replacement therapy. I have never heard of it until then. Intrigued and hopeful I went to see Dr. Bashir for a consultation and after a few minutes of consultation I knew platelet replacement therapy was the way to go! After two treatments, 30 days apart, I felt many times better than when I walked in. Now, 5 months later, I have avoided surgery, regained mobility and range of motion and live pain free. The work that Dr. Bashir and his team, especially Randy, physical therapist who broke me down and put me back together so that Dr. Bashir can practice his art of regenerative medicine, can not be understated. I can enjoy my life again thanks to their professionalism and work. Avoid surgery at all costs until you have met Dr. Bashir and his team!

    I have had chronic lower back pain and multiple shoulder surgeries over the last 20 years. Not wanting a shoulder replacement or back surgery at this time, I turned to Dr. Bashir for help. I told him about my situation and all the avenues of physical therapy and surgeries that did not yield the desired results. Dr Bashir was very professional and showed a kindness and concern that is not often displayed in the orthopedic field. I am still in the process of recovering, but the stem cell therapy has definitely given me hope that I will be back better than before and without the chronic pain. I am very happy with my choice to forego surgery and exercise all my options like regenerative medicine, and OCYON Regenerative and Dr. Bashir have my utmost confidence.James Quinn 01/16/2019
