Regenerative Therapy offers the potential to reverse joint damage and degeneration and alleviate pain that previously could only be treated by drugs or surgery.

If you have pain in any of the areas of the body below,

regenerative therapy could be the solution you’ve been waiting for:

Regenerative Medicine For Cervical Pain, DJD and Arthritis

The bones of the neck are made up of several cervical vertebrae. Between each vertebrae sits a cartilage disc that acts as a cushion, allowing the neck bones to move smoothly without friction. When cartilage starts to deteriorate or becomes damaged, cervical neck pain and stiffness can occur. Cervical neck pain from an injury, inflammation, or disc degeneration can become chronic and increasingly difficult to treat.

Regenerative Medicine has revolutionized treatment options for those suffering from chronic neck pain. Stem Cell and Regenerative Therapy uses Regenerative Cells to target the painful areas, help recharge the immune system, and greatly reduce inflammation. This allows the body to heal itself naturally and quickly. Many patients have been able to avoid the risks of surgery and medication with our non-invasive, in-office procedures.

Regenerative Cell Therapy is a revolutionary solution to heal cervical joint degeneration, and a safe alternative to medications, steroid injections, and surgery. We use a high concentration of umbilical cord-derived stem cells to reduce inflammation, alleviate pain, and trigger an immune response to heal damaged tissues. While aging and inflammation can slow down the body’s natural healing process, our regenerative medicine techniques aim to jumpstart this system and target specific areas of the body. These non-invasive procedures can be done in a same-day, in-office visit.

Regenerative Medicine for Cervical Arthritis

Cervical arthritis is chronic inflammation of the tendons, ligaments, and soft tissues surrounding the vertebrae of the neck. Between each vertebrae sit discs of cartilage that provide support for the moving joints in the neck, and keep the bones from rubbing against each other. When this cartilage dehydrates or becomes damaged, signs of inflammation and arthritis can develop.

Stem Cell and Regenerative Therapy can reduce the inflammation that causes arthritic pain. By using the Stem Cells with a high concentration of immune cells and healing factors, this procedure helps the body naturally repair the damaged tissue and cartilage between each vertebrae in the neck. With our same-day, in-office procedures, we can help you start feeling better fast.

Regenerative Medicine for Back Pain

At Pima Ortho we specialize in back pain treatment. We have pioneered the industry’s latest proven alternatives to surgery and steroids. Our in-office, same-day procedures will alleviate your back pain regardless of the cause. We treat a range of conditions including spondylolisthesis, spinal arthritis, intervertebral disc degeneration, spinal stenosis and herniated discs. Even those with little or no disc cartilage have benefited from our Regenerative Cell Treatment Program.**

Pima Ortho’s revolutionary Regenerative Cell Therapy procedures treat all the damage and underlying conditions that cause you pain. Our doctors will inject these cells to the target area, and they then act as an immunologically privileged material to rebuild and strengthen the damaged tissue which causes back pain.**

Regenerative Medicine for Facet Syndrome

Facet syndrome is a condition that affects the small joints between the vertebrae that make up the spine, and is one of the most common conditions causing lower back and neck pain. These joints are constantly moving, providing the stability and flexibility needed to walk, sit, turn, and bend. Each of these small joints of the neck and spine contain soft tissues and cartilage that absorb shock during these movements and are important to protect the bones from rubbing against each other and causing friction. This can cause inflammation and swelling of the joints, headaches, and make even slight movements painful.

Facet syndrome has historically been difficult to treat, but new developments in Regenerative Medicine offer new, advanced treatment options. Regenerative Cell Therapy is a natural alternative to the risks of medications, steroid injections, and surgery. By using these Regenerative Cells, our specialists can target specific areas of pain and inflammation to alleviate pain and trigger an immune response that helps heal damaged tissues. Our non-invasive procedures can be done in a same-day, in-office visit.**

Regenerative Medicine for Degenerative Disc Disease

The spine is made up of several vertebrae, separated by soft tissue and cartilage that provides cushioning between the bones. The cartilage between each bone is called a disc, and each disc keeps the bones from rubbing against one another. Disc degeneration occurs when this cartilage wears down or becomes damaged.

If left untreated, disc degeneration can limit mobility, and lead to bone spurs and chronic pain. People suffering from back problems no longer have to settle for pain medications, steroid injections, or risky surgical procedures. Regenerative Cell Therapy is an advanced, non-surgical procedure that rebuilds degenerating discs and tissues. Our team of specialists is experienced in finding the right treatment options that can reduce inflammation and the development of scar tissue, and get you feeling better fast.**

Regenerative Medicine for Lumbar Arthritis

Lumbar arthritis is chronic inflammation of the soft tissues within the joints of the lower back. Cartilage discs that sit between each vertebrae provide support and stability for the constant movement in the back. When the supportive tissues are damaged from injury or begin to deteriorate, painful swelling and inflammation can occur from friction between the bones.

Arthritis can become an ongoing, chronic issue that not only causes pain, stiffness, and swelling, but can limit mobility and the ability to perform daily activities. The use of Regenerative Medicine techniques can eliminate the inflammation that causes symptoms of lumbar arthritis. Regenerative Cell Therapy is a procedure that uses healing cells to target pain areas, reduce inflammation, and even generate new growth of supportive soft tissues.**

Regenerative Medicine for Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is the degeneration of the protective cartilage that covers the ends of the bones in the joints. It is also known as degenerative arthritis or wear and tear arthritis. The protein that makes up the cartilage degenerates by forming tiny cracks or by flaking. This can eventually result into a total loss of cartilage. Once the cartilage is lost, the friction between the bones can stimulate spurs or bony growths to form around the joints.

Rather than going for the traditional treatments, you can visit Pima Ortho for a non-invasive alternative. Our same-day procedure eliminates the pain, recovery time and risk associated with traditional treatments. Our procedure also treats the underlying damage that causes the pain.**

Regenerative Medicine For Shoulder Injuries

Sports activities that require repeating overhead movements like lifting weights, swimming, throwing or pitching, and swinging of the arms put a lot of strain on the shoulder. Even regular, everyday activities can damage the shoulder such as gardening, hanging curtains, or even scrubbing the floors or walls. Often, injury to the shoulder is difficult to heal, and can easily become a recurring problem, even if the immediate pain has subsided. Once ligaments and tissues have been damaged, scar tissue and inflammation can continue to form and build. It is also common for the same injury to reappear, and flare up at later times.

Sports or other injury to the shoulder can now be treated with non-invasive, Regenerative Medicine procedures like Stem Cell and Regenerative Therapy. This is a revolutionary treatment option that has helped many patients avoid prescription medications, steroid injections, and even surgery.**

Regenerative Medicine For Rotator Cuff Tears

Your shoulder is a ball-and-socket joint in which the ball of your upper arm bone fits into the socket of your shoulder blade. The rotator cuff is a network of four muscles that come together as tendons forming a covering around the head of the upper arm bone keeping the arm bone firmly attached to the socket of the shoulder blade (scapula).

The rotator tears usually develop gradually due to stress, overuse and natural wear and tear. People who repeatedly lift their arm overhead are more vulnerable to overuse tears. These include athletes such as tennis players, swimmers, weight lifters and baseball pitchers. A tear in the rotator cuff produces a lot of pain and also contributes to instability in the shoulder joint. If it is severe, there may be weakness or an inability to lift the arm.

Our Regenerative Cell Therapy treatment has been fortified and enhanced with cytokines and additional natural growth factors to aid in the recovery of rotator cuff injuries. After an injection directly into the rotator cuff, these cells combine with the body’s own natural immune cells and aid the body in repairing the tear.**

Regenerative Medicine For Shoulder Degeneration

Degeneration of the shoulder joints is usually a progressive condition that evolves and worsens over time. Shoulder degeneration occurs when the cartilage that protects and surrounds the bones begins to wear down. Without this cushioning between the bones, movement causes friction within the joint. This friction causes pain, inflammation, swelling, and can lead to the development of bone spurs.

Regenerative Medicine For Shoulder Injuries

Regenerative Cell Therapy takes a high concentration of immune cells, and uses them to target specific areas with damaged tissues. Inflammation and aging slows down the natural production of these cells, and the development of scar tissue limits the range of motion needed for proper rehabilitation. Using concentrated levels of umbilical cord-derived stem cells, these cells can quickly reduce pain, inflammation, and scar tissue. This supports the immune system in healing damage within the shoulder joint.**

Regenerative Medicine For Shoulder Bursitis

The larger joints of the body contain small, fluid-filled sacs called bursae that provide cushioning between muscles, bones and tissues, allowing them to move smoothly without friction. Bursitis is the inflammation of one or more of these bursae, and often occurs within the shoulder joint, causing stiffness and making movement painful.

The best treatments for bursitis aim to reduce the inflammation that is causing the pain and stiffness. Regenerative Cell Therapy is a revolutionary treatment protocol that takes concentrated amounts of healing cells, and uses them directly in the area of inflammation and damage. This is a non-surgical procedure that can be done in-office, and quickly and naturally alleviates shoulder pain.**

(Tennis elbow) Lateral Epicondylitis

Many patients with tennis elbow run away from surgery and steroid injections. At Pima Ortho, we offer an effective, non-invasive alternative to steroid injections and surgery. Our procedures treat all the underlying damages that cause the elbow pain.**

(Golfer’s Elbow) Medial epicondylitis

At Pima Ortho we offer these alternative procedures to ensure that your treatment is painless. We utilize umbilical cord stem cell matrix which stimulate the body’s own repair systems to do their work and repair damaged tissues in the body. This innovative treatment method has already been proven effective in clinical studies.**

Distal Biceps Tendon Tear

Distal biceps tendon tear typically occurs as a result of sudden injury and is not a result of other medical conditions. The tear can occur during heavy lifting without bending the elbows. In a situation where the elbow joints are forcefully straightened the distal tendon gets separated from the bicep.*

Our Regenerative Cell Therapy treatment has been fortified and enhanced with cytokines and additional natural growth factors to aid in the recovery of elbow tendon tears. After an injection directly into the affected area, these cells combine with the body’s own natural healing and immune cells to aid the body in repairing the tear.**

Regenerative Medicine for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Applying too much pressure to the carpal tunnel causes the median nerve to become pinched resulting in many problems that are experienced in the wrist and hand including pain, tingling and difficulty functioning. The carpal tunnel is a pathway that runs from the elbow down to the hand. It is located on the inner aspect of your arm and houses a median nerve and many other tendons.

If you have carpal tunnel syndrome and you do not want to risk the side effects associated with steroid injections or you don’t want to go for surgery, you can schedule a free consultation with one of our doctors. We offer a non-invasive alternative to steroid injections and surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome. We will treat all of the underlying issues that are causing you pain by utilizing Stem Cell and Regenerative Therapy to help heal the cause of your wrist pain.**

Regenerative Medicine for Wrist Arthritis

Arthritis of the hands and wrists is inflammation of the various tissues within the joints. Each joint is made up of tendons, ligaments, cartilage, and other soft tissues that provide cushioning where the bones meet, keeping them from rubbing against each other. When there is damage or deterioration within the joints, arthritis is likely to develop. Usually, the condition progressively develops and worsens over time. Sudden, traumatic injury to the delicate soft tissues of the hand and wrist joints can also lead to the inflammation, stiffness, and pain of arthritis. Arthritis pain can easily become a chronic condition, and becomes increasingly more difficult to treat.

Despite the risks involved, many have tried prescription pain medications, steroid injections, and even surgery to relieve their pain. Now there are advanced, non-surgical techniques to reduce inflammation and arthritic pain. Stem Cell and Regenerative Therapy takes healing cells from umbilical cord tissue that contains a high concentration of stem cells and growth factors that help not only heal your inflamed joint but also helps to regenerate tissue. This is a same-day, in-office procedure that helps your body heal the arthritis in your hands and wrists naturally, without the need for surgery.**

Regenerative Medicine for Meniscus Tear

When the meniscus cartilage ruptures due to traumatic injuries or due to age-related wear and tear it is referred to as meniscus tear. Meniscus tear is usually very painful and limiting. The knee will not operate correctly with this type of injury. The meniscus is located at the knee joint. It is a rubbery piece of cartilage that acts as the body’s shock absorber and also acts as a pad to stabilize and protect the knee.

Meniscus tear are of three degrees: severe, moderate and minor. Severe meniscus is when bits of ruptured meniscus enter the knee joint and affects the function of the knee causing a lot of pain. But for minor and moderate meniscus tears, the pain usually disappears after conventional treatment or a few weeks of rest. Those suffering from meniscus tear are increasingly becoming aware of the implications of removing the meniscus though surgical operation, they also prefer not to risk the side effects that come with steroid injections.

Pima Ortho offers a non-invasive alternative to surgery and steroid injections for this problem. We also treat the underlying issues that cause the pain with our advanced form of Stem Cell and Regenerative Therapy. By using this regenerative approach, the joint can repair itself and regain its function of holding the knee bones in place, thus relieving pressure on other components such as the particular cartilage and meniscus.**

Regenerative Medicine for Knee Degeneration

Degeneration of the joints can occur in any of the joints in the body, especially those that experience lots of wear and tear. The knees are used in so many daily motions, feeling pain with each movement is debilitating. Joint degeneration generally develops over time, but can suddenly worsen and become more severe and disabling. Cartilage or other soft tissues within the knee joint can begin to dehydrate, deteriorate, or become damaged from some type of injury.These tissues provide a protective cushion between the bones for smooth movement. Once these start to wear down, or degenerate, friction within the joint can lead to inflammation, swelling, bone spurs, and other painful symptoms. Recent developments in Regenerative Medicine make it possible to treat degenerative joint conditions naturally, without the need for medications, steroids, or surgery. Regenerative Cell Therapy uses stem cells to target the damaged and deteriorating tissues. Concentrated amounts of these cells are injected into the affected area, and immediately reduce inflammation and reverse damage and deterioration of tissue.**

Regenerative Medicine for ACL or PCL Injury

The posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) and anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) are both major ligaments providing strength and stability within the knee joint. Ligaments are thick bands of tissue that connect bones. Injuries to these connective tissues are painful, debilitating, and have historically been a challenge to treat and heal. In the past, these kinds of injuries could cause what was considered permanent damage to the knee joints. Traditionally, the most common treatment for torn ligaments in the knee is arthroscopic surgery and reconstruction. Developments in regenerative medicine make effective, natural treatment of PCL and ACL injuries within reach. Procedures like Stem Cell and Regenerative Therapy offer non-surgical treatment options for those suffering from knee injuries and damage to soft tissues in the joints. Using these cells in concentrated amounts to target the injured area, the body is able to reduce inflammation and heal itself naturally.**

Regenerative Medicine for Chondromalacia

Also known as “runner’s knee,” chondromalacia is inflammation of the underside of the kneecap, and deterioration of the cartilage that supports it. When this cartilage is damaged or wears down, it becomes difficult to bend and straighten out the leg. This condition is common among young athletes, but may also be present in older individuals with arthritis of the knee. Regenerative Cell Therapy and other Regenerative Medicine techniques offer natural treatment alternatives to pain medications, steroid injections, and surgery. Using these cells, our specialists are able to target specific areas of inflammation or injury and restore damaged tissues. These are cutting-edge techniques that have provided relief and healing to so many of our patients with knee pain.**

Regenerative Medicine for Plantar Fasciitis

The Plantar Fascia, or arch tendon, is located at the bottom of the foot. It is a broad connective tissue that runs across the bottom of the foot and spreads from the heel bone to the toes at the front of the foot. Its overuse is what causes plantar fasciitis. A common symptom of plantar fasciitis is pain when walking. The pain typically decreases during exercise, but intensifies after walking or standing for long periods of time. A major complaint is stabbing pain in the bottom of the foot near the heel. This condition is commonly identified as a heel spur, although both are not entirely the same. This is because a heel spur arises at the point where the plantar fascia connects to the heel bone (calcaneus) and develops as a bony growth.

At Pima Ortho we have introduced a new regenerative technique for the treatment of plantar fasciitis. We treat the stressed connective tissue with an injection of Regenerative Cells. Our procedure helps to regenerate damaged tissue while reducing pain. So if you are not satisfied with the results that traditional orthopedic treatments have delivered for your plantar fasciitis, contact us to learn more about how Regenerative Cell Therapy can help.**

Cutting Edge Treatment Proven to Reduce

Chronic Joint Pain

Regenerative therapy uses umbilical cord cells collected from a consenting donor following a healthy c-section delivery. No fetuses or babies are harmed.
The cells are processed and checked for a full slate of diseases following strict FDA guidelines.** They are then injected directly into the patient’s painful area where they deliver 3 essential properties for restoring joint health:
  1. A high concentration of stem cells
  2. Hyaluronic acid for joint lubrication and movement
  3. Anti-inflammatory cytokines and cellular growth factors essential for building new joint tissue

Here’s How Regenerative Therapy Works:

Stem cells live in all of us. Think of them as your body’s repairmen.

However, as you age or get injuries, your body may not be able to self-generate enough of these critical repair cells to heal your injured area. Our regenerative therapy helps solve this problem by greatly increasing your body’s own natural ability for healing.

It has the potential to:


No treatment is a panacea, but what if you could reduce your pain by 70%, 80% or more? Wouldn’t that make your life so much easier and more enjoyable?

Come to our free, one-hour, no obligation seminar to hear the facts about regenerative therapy. You’ll learn what stem cells are, how they work in the body and what’s involved in treatment.

Top 10 Frequently Asked Questions

Where does the material used in regenerative therapy come from?

This therapy uses human allograft tissue from mothers who have donated their umbilical cords following healthy elective c-section delivery births (no fetal tissue is used whatsoever!)

Who is a candidate for regenerative cell therapy?

This treatment may be suitable for anyone suffering from inflammation, reduced mobility, sports injuries, tissues and ligament damage, cartilage degeneration, or chronic joint pain. You’d need to speak with one of our doctors to review your x-rays and particular circumstances to see if you are a good candidate for the procedure.

Is regenerative cell therapy safe?

Our team has performed over 1,000 regenerative cell injections. The product is thoroughly tested for safety in clinical procedures. The donor serology (blood test) test panel is the most extensive in the industry, following FDA testing guidelines as well as those from the American Association of Tissue Banks. In addition, these cells do not express specific “HLAs” (Human Leukocyte Antigens). These are cellular proteins that serve as a kind of “fingerprint” in helping your immune system identify which cells are yours vs. some else’s. Because of this, these regenerative cells are able to avoid triggering a response from the immune system.

How many treatments will I need?

Of course, every patient is different, but most patients experience relief after only one treatment.** Others may require additional treatments, something we determine through our advanced assessment both before and after each treatment.

How long before I should expect to see results?

This can vary widely from person to person, depending on many different factors (location & extent of the damage is a major factor). Just as the joint probably didn’t degenerate over night, it’s not going to regenerate overnight either. We typically tell patients that it could take 6-8 weeks or more before they begin to notice a significant difference. That being said, we have countless patients that report feeling a difference the same day as their injection. The treatment also contains hyaluronic acid, which is a known joint lubricant. This can often lead to a noticeable reduction in pain almost immediately.

Does the therapy ever not work?

Like any therapy, there’s no 100% guarantee. In some extreme cases of damage and degeneration it’s possible that the regenerative cells simply can’t repair enough of the damage relative to the severity of your condition.

If the therapy doesn’t work for me, can I still get surgery?

Yes. There’s nothing about this treatment that would prevent you from having surgery in the future. Also, please know that we evaluate each case carefully before prescribing treatment. If we believe the best course of action in your case is surgery, that’s what we’ll advise.

How much does treatment cost?

The cost will depend on a wide array of factors including cause of injury/damage, location and severity of the damage, areas of the body affected, x-ray images, patient history, etc. Some cases may require special surgical equipment and imaging devices in order to safely and accurately deliver the cells to the damaged areas. You’d need to speak with one of our doctors to discuss your particular circumstances to see if you are a good candidate for the procedure and get a sense of the approximate cost. The doctor always makes time for a personal conversation with each of the guests at the seminar.

I’m interested. What’s the next step?

Come to our seminar. Learn about regenerative therapy and see if it might be right for you. There’s no cost, no obligation, and the seminar only lasts one hour. You owe it to yourself to consider this option as something that could significantly improve your quality of life without painful surgery or harmful drugs.
