PROFESSIONAL NFL QUARTERBACK

Regenexx-C and stem cell storage patient

Things are going to be hurting a little bit when I’m older; it’s just the nature of the business, so to have something available, to help heal from that is huge. Whether it’s from an injury in practice, or I tweak something during the off-season, or in 20 years after my career is done…I have these cells banked in Grand Cayman and I’m able to use those in order to improve my quality of life and be able to enjoy the rest of my life.

Regenexx-C spine, knee, shoulder, ankle, and stem cell storage patient

My wife and I are both doctors and have traveled all over the world. One of the reason’s I chose to come to Regenexx Cayman is they’re the best in the world. I spent months and months researching, calling different doctors, and asking around about who is the best in the world. The same people kept coming up—Regenexx in the Cayman Islands.

Regenexx-C knee, shoulder, spine, and stem cell storage patient

I’ve been very active and now I’ve entered my 60’s and I want to stay active and do as many things as I can, for as long as I can. I’m back to doing all of the things I love and it has been great for me.

Wanda Brenton

2014 CROSSFIT GAMES WINNER, LATIN AMERICA

Regenexx-SCP and Regenexx-PLM shoulder patient

My initial thought was “I’m not really sure if it could work… But since having the treatment, I was able to go to the CrossFit Games twice. And for any athlete, well CrossFit in particular, the CrossFit Games is the pinnacle of everything – its’ like going to the Olympics. Had I not had treatment, there’s no way I could have done that.”

FORMER NFL DEFENSIVE END, 2 X SUPER BOWL CHAMPION

Regenexx-C spine, knee, and stem cell storage patient

After mini-camp, I couldn’t walk up and down stairs. I couldn’t play tennis with my kids. Nothing. Two weeks later [after having the Regenexx-C cultured stem cell treatment] and I’m biking in the mountains… I went to camp, didn’t miss a day of practice, ran every day, and beat everyone in sprints. The pain was gone.

PROFESSIONAL SNOWBOARDER, 2014 OLYMPIAN

Regenexx-C knee, ankle, and stem cell storage patient.

Before I had the Regenexx treatment, I was constantly dealing with knee popping, and my knee would hurt when I went snowboarding. It would get more and more sore, and at the end of the day, it would be really swollen. Having that treatment fix that issue was a huge help.

Philippe Deslandes

CAYMAN ISLANDS NATIONAL TEAM BEACH VOLLEYBALL PLAYER

Regenexx-SD knee patient

In 2006, I suffered from a potential, career-ending knee injury. The doctors told me it was likely I would never compete in sports again. After 4 long, hard years of recovery, I slowly made my way back, but started to feel the arthritis within a few years.

The pain and discomfort remained constant over the last 5 years and really affected my ability to jump and explode in a sport that requires me to do so. I am 8 weeks post-treatment of both knees with the Regenexx Cayman team, and I am delighted to report that I am pain-free and feel better than I have in a long time. Thank you so much for giving me my life back.

GOLF PROFESSIONAL

Regenexx-C shoulder patient

I am a golf professional and lifelong golfer. In early 2012, I injured my left rotator cuff, causing pain and inability to swing a club. I heard of the alternative to surgery that is available here in Grand Cayman with Regenexx.

In September of that year, I had my own stem cells re-injected. By January, I had noticeable decrease in pain and increase in mobility. A few months later I was able to resume playing. I am now playing golf regularly with little to no discomfort, and highly recommend the Regenexx procedure.

DANCER

Regenexx-C hip, knee, and shoulder patient

My experience at Regenexx Cayman was amazing. The staff provided top-class service and the Doctor was direct and experienced in joint regeneration. It's been six months since my procedure and I'm doing much better. I can go out and dance now and workout at the gym with no pain. I can also stand in one place longer than I could before. I'm so glad I did the procedure because it gave me the opportunity to be active again.

RUNNER

Regenexx-C knee, spine, hip, and stem cell storage patient

It has been just over a year since the injections to my knees, hip and spine. What an amazing journey! I was needing a handrail to get up and down stairs. Now all my back and leg issues and pains are gone. I can casually do a 1-2 mile run with no pain, even days after! Today I am fitter then I was when I was 20 years old!”

Brian Lash

TENNIS PLAYER AND SKIER

Regenexx-C knee and stem cell storage patient

After three knee surgeries I was still not able to play the sports I loved. I visited Regenexx in the winter of 2016 on the recommendation of a good friend who played for almost a decade in the NFL. I explored alternatives stateside that promoted same day stem cell therapy, but further research confirmed that if I were to go this route, that the ability to grow my cells would enhance my chances of success.

I am pleased to say that within three months of my injections in Cayman, I was back on the court and on the slopes. I credit Regenexx with contributing to my recovery and recommend them to others who cannot obtain the relief needed thru traditional surgeries.

SKIER

Regenexx-C hip and knee patient

Seven knee surgeries and severe arthritis made me a candidate for a knee replacement. But then I learned about Regenexx. As an over 65 skier who skis over 100 days per season including British Columbia and Alaska back country, my stem cell replacement procedure was successful and I ski with no brace and no swelling in some of the steepest, most rugged terrain in North America ! Just did my hips, which had severe degeneration and hoping for the same success

Tricia Miller

BEACH VOLLEYBALL PLAYER

Regenexx-SCP hand patient

While playing beach volleyball over the past few years, and with many injuries to my thumbs during that time, my thumbs were so weak and tender. It even hurt to put on a seat belt in the car or open jars.

After Dr. Pitts treated me with Regenexx SCP, which is a blood platelet procedure, I was back setting and playing volleyball within weeks. It is such an amazing treatment that the Regeneex Physicians offer and I am so thankful I was able to be benefit from this treatment.

Kevin Hunter

CAYMAN ISLANDS NATIONAL TEAM HOCKEY PLAYER

Regenexx-SCP ankle patient

For that last 2 1/2 years I have had ankle issues which stem from the wear and tear plus a couple bad injuries of all the sports I had participated over the years. I have been to several doctors to figure out what was wrong. After trial and error with several treatments that did not work I have decided to under go ankle surgery on my left ankle. The post-op of this was long and painful road. As a result the surgery was not a success as I still experienced pain and swelling of the ankle. I decided to look into stem cell as my last resort which had I known should have been the first thing I done. After doing research on it, talking to people who had it done I decided to go through with the procedure. I had my consultation and after that I was convinced this was the thing to do. The whole procedure from check in, preparations for stem cell, the aspiration, the injections themselves and the check-out was top notch. The staff were fantastic and made you feel safe and confident that you were in good hands. Comparing my post-op to the surgery, I experienced 2 days of discomfort which can be medicated for. The 3rd day started walking on the foot and day 4 fully walking on foot for the first time in 2 1/2 years pain free!!! I was amazed and now a full on believer and would recommend this to anyone to be your first choice of action if you're looking for the sure thing to fix you ailment. Think about stem cell before you elect to be operated on it is safe, efficient and provides a quick recovery.

HIKER

Regenexx-C knee, spine, and hip patient

The first time I went to Regenexx Cayman I had both my knees done and my back.  It went very well. I was able to hike and walk normally again. I felt wonderful! Unfortunately, about two years later I found out I had Lupus and started having joint problems all over.

But after having such amazing results from my first treatment with Regenexx Cayman I decided to return to address the severe joint pain in my hips.  During my second visit to Regenexx Cayman I had stem cell injections for both hips, knees, and my back. I have faith in Regenexx and believe this is the best way to help me. The physicians are honest about what can be done and what can’t. I trust them completely. 

Fred Wilks

SEMI-PROFESSIONAL SOCCER PLAYER

Regenexx-C knee, ankle, and stem cell storage patient

The years of competitive football from a young age took a toll on my knees and after 2 arthroscopic surgeries on each knee and a ACL reconstruction, my knees were finally done. I found it difficult to even walk the morning following any sports activity.

I contemplated stem therapy and after months of research and pain, I decided to have treatment at Regenexx Cayman. I am now 6 months post-procedure and I can say I'm 95% pain and swelling free. I am glad I did the procedure and am looking forward to doing my ankles.

Richard Donovan

ULTRAMARATHON RUNNER AND WORLD MARATHON CHALLENGE ORGANIZER

Regenexx-C knee, ankle, and stem cell storage patient

Having run across three continents, covering over 6000 miles, it’s not surprising that I developed some leg injuries in the process. However, before I ever started my first transcontinental run in 2015 - across the USA - I was already suffering from chronic knee pain at the front of both knees.

Like many runners, I had endured the pain for years and soldiered on, but I eventually turned to Regenexx Cayman for stem cell therapy at the end of 2017. Within a couple of months of the injections, I no longer suffered pain in these areas and the problems were fixed. My intention now is to return to Cayman, where I have stored my stem cells, to help with other knee-related issues.” Richard Donovan, ultra runner and marathon organizer.
