ACL Surgeries and Regenexx Stem Cell Technology
Dr. Centeno specializes in clinical use of adult stem cells for orthopedic injuries, which he treats through same-day procedures at his clinic in Denver, Colorado, and through cultured expansion of mesenchymal stem cells at a clinic in Grand Cayman. He first performed these adult stem cell procedures in the U.S. in 2005-2006, and his clinic has since has treated thousands orthopedic patients with stem cell based therapies.
Dr. Chris Centeno is best known for the Regenexx® technology, an approach that uses needle-based procedures coupled with sophisticated guidance techniques to place large numbers of stem cells at the site needing repair. This approach can often replace the need for invasive orthopedic surgeries. [Read more…]
