Our injection physicians are highly trained in regenerative medicine and in safe, effective injection therapy.
Dr. Simon uses the following regenerative injections:
Treat Injuries, Pain and Chronic Conditions With ADSC and PRP Therapy
This exciting therapy utilizes a patient’s Adipose (fat) Derived Stem Cells (ADSC) combined with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to produce a potent biological therapeutic combination. Stem cells are abundant in adipose tissue, containing from 100 to 1000 times the concentration of stem cells found in bone marrow!
ADSC provide a living bio-scaffold and a multi-potent cell replenishment source (i.e. capable of differentiating into many different cell types) useful for healing musculoskeletal disorders. These stem cells are capable of differentiating into bone, cartilage, tendon, ligament and muscle. Combined with platelet rich plasma, which contains growth factors and cytokines that stimulate the stem cells, the management of various musculoskeletal disorders, including osteoarthritis and chronic soft tissue tears/degeneration, has taken a big step forward. Furthermore, the use of ADSC and PRP together is the first non-surgical attempt to stimulate cartilage growth in knees with osteoarthritis and cartilage (meniscus) tears.
How Are the Cells Harvested?
The ADSC are harvested from the subcutaneous fat of the abdomen, flank, buttock or thigh. This simple process uses local anesthetic, and usually only a small amount of fat (30cc of fat) is needed. The procedure is done in the office as an outpatient. Once harvested, your fat, containing millions of stem cells, is immediately combined with your PRP, and injected into the appropriate area. Ultrasound guidance is often used to ensure accuracy of needle placement. Average procedure time is about an hour from start to finish.
How are the Injections Scheduled?
The stem cell/PRP procedure is typically followed by 1 or 2 PRP therapy ‘booster shots’ done about 4 weeks apart, depending on the musculoskeletal disorder being treated.
Any Risks and Side Effects?
Some local discomfort and bruising at both the fat harvesting site and the injection site are normal, lasting up to 1-2 weeks. As with any procedure that penetrates the skin, there is a low risk of infection. Finally, the usual risks of liposuction that result from large amounts of fat being removed do not apply here based on the small quantity being taken. Furthermore, as local anesthetic is used, the risks that accompany general anesthesia and/or IV sedation do not apply. Learn about the risks associated with liposuction here.
When Can I Expect to Start Feeling Better?
Sometimes within weeks, once the post-injection discomfort passes, but the full effects of injection therapy may take several months to manifest.

What is Bone Marrow Derived Autologous Concentrate (BMAC)?
The use of bone marrow as a source of human stem cells has been around for decades. Human bone marrow acts as a natural reservoir of multi-potent stem cells, which play an invaluable role in the healing cascade. These stem cells have the remarkable ability to differentiate into many cell types in our body, such as muscle, tendon, ligament and bone cells. However, during severe or chronic injury, our bodies cannot get enough of these valuable stem cells to the injured area. Stem Cell Therapy using Bone Marrow Aspirate solves this problem by amplifying the number of available stem cells.
The procedure for Stem Cell Therapy using Bone Marrow Aspirate begins with the physician applying local anesthetic to the patient’s lower back and hip, which will numb the area. Once the patient is comfortable and cannot feel the area, the physician will draw a small amount of bone marrow through a needle. This is known as a bone marrow aspiration, and is much less painful than a bone marrow biopsy, which involves the removal of bone alongside the bone marrow.
Once bone marrow aspiration begins, the Bone Marrow derived Autologous
Concentrate (BMAC) solution will be processed in order to maximize the retrieval of stem cells. Upon request, the bone marrow may also be paired with platelet rich plasma (link to PRP page) in a single solution. This is all done immediately following the bone marrow aspiration and is what we call point of care therapy. Once ready, the BMAC solution will be re-injected into the area of concern under image guidance (real-time fluoroscopy or ultrasound), maximizing the accuracy of delivery.

What Is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections involve withdrawing 20-60 cc of a patient’s own blood. Next, the blood is processed in a special centrifuge, which separates the blood into various components. One of the components, PRP, contains a high concentration of blood platelets, and as a result, a high concentration of Growth Factors. The PRP is then injected.
What Is Platelet Rich Plasma?
Platelets are one type of cell found in blood, the other major types being red blood cells and white blood cells. Blood platelets are specialized cells that have many functions, including helping blood clot when you are bleeding, providing a ‘scaffold’ for tissue healing when injured, and stimulating a myriad of ‘growth factors’ that helps an injured body heal itself
Growth factors are compounds that are made by platelets, examples of which include the Platelet Derived Growth Factor (PDGF), TGFB (Transforming Growth Factor Beta) and VEGF (Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor). These compounds are instrumental in attracting other cells that aid healing, stimulating new blood vessel formation helpful in the healing process, and promoting cell reproduction necessary for healing. Processing the blood into platelet rich plasma results in an average 4-5 fold increase in the concentration of these vital growth factors. Thus, when injected into injured tissue, a big ‘hit’ of healing compounds floods the injury, stimulating healing.
When Should PRP Therapy Be Used?
PRP is used in a variety of problems. Basically, anywhere an injury is slow in healing, or when you may want to speed up healing beyond the averages that most people experience, PRP therapy can be beneficial. Tendon injuries, ligament injuries and cartilage injuries are all potential targets for PRP injections. Conditions like arthritis, plantar fasciitis, muscle tears, ligament tears, rotator cuff tendinopathy and cartilage tears may all respond to PRP therapy.
Speeding up ‘normal’ healing is another powerful part of PRP injections. For instance, any athlete with an upcoming important competition can benefit from PRP injections to speed up healing. An individual with an upcoming active vacation, where an injury may negatively affect the trip, can also benefit, with the hope of healing to the point where the getaway can be actively enjoyed.
How Long Has PRP Therapy Been Used?
The earliest work with PRP therapy began about 20 years ago, but really has come to the forefront of regenerative medicine recently. In the past, it has been used to speed up surgical healing; now it’s application has expanded to non-surgical situations. In fact, PRP is often used prior to surgical intervention, and can reduce the chances you will need surgery for a nagging injury.
Why Are Guided PRP Injections Important?
Ultrasound or fluoroscopic guidance is needed to ensure accurate needle placement, and RegenerVate clinics have the necessary equipment.
How Many PRP Injections Will I Need?
Sometimes, 1 is enough. Depending on the injury, more may be required, but rarely more than 3.

Injection therapy can be used in the following ways:
1. Achilles tendon/other tendon tears
2. Ankle arthritis
3. Chronic ligament sprains/tears.
Using Injection Therapy to Treat Ankle Ailments
RegenerVate Medical Injection Therapy treats:
Achilles Tendon and Other Tendon Tears
Chronic Ligament Sprains and Tears
Healing the Achilles Tendon and Other Tendon Tears With Injection Therapy
Tendon tears around the ankle are common. Some are sudden, like an Achilles tendon tear that happens while lunging for a ball on a squash court. Others are slowly progressing, like the chronic pain on the inside part of your ankle from a posterior tibialis tendon tear that occurs in a person with flat feet. Achilles tendon tears often are casted, sometimes operated on (though this approach is now considered obsolete), and should always consider injection therapy early on in the casting period. Other tendon tears should also be considered for these therapies when pain is stubborn.
How Injection Therapy Can Treat Ankle Arthritis
This condition can occur if someone has sustained trauma to their ankle joint at some point in their lives, which could have been a break in an ankle bone, chronic ankle pain, or a nasty sprained ankle. RegenerVate Medical Injection Therapy is always an option for arthritis, often reducing the ankle pain and stiffness associated with this condition.
Reducing Pain From Chronic Ligament Sprains and Tears With Injection Therapy
Sometimes ligament sprains and tears do not heal adequately, and the ligaments remain loose, providing inadequate support for the ankle joint. This condition, called instability, can lead to chronic ankle pain. RegenerVate Medical Injection Therapy is a great option in these chronic situations, stimulating thickening/strengthening of the affected ligaments, reducing instability
If you’re dealing with ankle arthritis, Achilles tendon tears, or other ankle problems, RegenerVate Medical Injection Therapy can put that spring back in your step.

1. Pectoralis muscle and musculotendinous tears
2. Chronic breastbone/rib joint pain (costochondritis) 3. Sternocostal joint pain/arthritis.
Treating Chest Muscle Pain With Injection Therapy
RegenerVate Medical Injection Therapy treats:
Pectoralis Muscle and Musculotendinous tears
Chronic Breastbone and Rib Joint Pain (Costochondritis)
Sternocostal Joint Pain and Arthritis
Using Injection Therapy For Pectoralis Muscle and Musculotendinous Tears
These injuries can be careerenders for powerlifters. It can also affect other active weight trainers, and the injury is usually sustained during a bench press or while pushing something heavy. These tears are not candidates for surgery, but injection therapy needs to be considered early for optimal recovery.
Using Injection Therapy For Chronic Breastbone and Rib Joint Pain (Costochondritis)
Postural abnormalities can result in chronic on around the breastbone (sternum) and the rib joints that attach there. Called ‘costochondritis’ or ‘Tietze’s Syndrome’, this pain is often confused with heart attacks, stomach/esophagus problems, and lung problems.
Using Injection Therapy For Sternocostal Joint Pain and Arthritis
These are the joints that connect the collarbone to the breastbone (sternum). Trauma to the collarbone or constant pressure on these joints resulting from various exercises or postural problems can result in ongoing chest muscle pain. There are no surgical solutions for these conditions, though injection therapy can be very helpful. Don’t let any chest muscle pain, tears, or costochondritis stop you from going to the gym. Early injection therapy treatments can allow for optimal recovery, so don’t wait!
1. Tennis elbow
2. Golfers’ elbow
3. Tendon pain/tears/surgery alternative
4. Stiff elbow joint/arthritis.
Types of Elbow Pain That Can be Treated With Injection Therapy
RegenerVate Medical Injection Therapy treats:
Stiff Elbow Joint and Elbow Arthritis
Using Injection Therapy for Tennis Elbow
This elbow pain affects the common tendon on the outside of the elbow, which can be stubborn to treat due to the lack of blood supply. While individuals playing racquet sports are susceptible, hence the name ‘tennis elbow’, the truth is that more people are injured doing other activities, like computer work, weight training and repetitive activities during physical work. Tears are often present in this tendon and can require a more aggressive approach than the usual first line interventions of therapy, acupuncture, rest and shockwave therapy. Where surgery was once the only other option in treating these stubborn tendinopathies, injection therapy can now prevent this in many cases.
Using Injection Therapy for Golfer’s Elbow
This tendinopathy affects the inside of the elbow, where the common flexor tendon attaches to the medial epicondyle of the humerus. Common in golfers, hence the name ‘golfer’s elbow’, it is actually more commonly caused by computer work, weight training and repetitive grasping/gripping movements. Tears are often present in this tendon which can invariably complicate the recovery, especially in those over 40. Injection therapy is often the answer in these situations.
Using Injection Therapy for Stiff Elbow Joint and Elbow Arthritis
Stiff elbow joints can be the result of arthritis, which is often due to a prior injury to the elbow. Elbow pain can be ongoing in these instances RegenerVate Medical Injection Therapy can alleviate chronic elbow pain and stiffness, getting you back on the course, court, or whatever you love to do.
1. Plantar fasciopathy
2. Foot arthritis
3. Toe arthritis/surgery alternative 4. Bunion pain/surgery alternative.
Stomping Out Foot Pain With Injection Therapy
Injection Therapy treats:
2.Foot or Toe Arthritis
Using Injection Therapy for Plantar Fasciopathy
Plantar fasciitis is a stubborn problem that can produce chronic heel pain despite therapy, orthotics, weight loss, acupuncture…you name it. Sometimes, there is a tear in the plantar fascia that won’t heal, even with conventional interventions. Injection therapy can stimulate repair in these tears and ease the pain of your plantar fasciitis.
Using Injection Therapy for Foot or Toe Arthritis
Like any weight bearing joint, the joints of the foot can become arthritic, often producing pain and stiffness. Targeted injection therapy can help overcome the pain of arthritis.
Using Injection Therapy for Bunion Pain
This degenerative condition of the first toe ‘knuckle’ often results in a large bump on the inside of the joint, with deviation of the big toe toward the baby toe. Pain and stiffness can result from bunions. Medical Injection Therapy can help relieve the pain and stiffness of these bunions.

Using Injection Therapy to Treat Thumb, Finger, and Hand Arthritis
Arthritis in hands is debilitating in those that have it. Thumb joint pain and finger joint pain can be treated with RegenerVate Medical Injection Therapy using image guidance to accurately access the joints involved.
Using Injection Therapy to Treat Trigger Finger and Thumb
This is a condition where tendons of the fingers and thumb get stuck as they move, usually due to scar tissue that builds up around the tendon. There is a noticeable catch, or pop, as the finger or thumb moves. Targeted injection therapy of these areas of the tendon can alleviate the pain and triggering associated with these problems.
Using Injection Therapy to Treat De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis
De Quervain’s tenosynovitis is a painful condition of one or two thumb tendons, and common in computer workers, those that text a lot on their phones, and new parents who are constantly lifting up their newborns. Targeted injection therapy of these tendons can reduce the pain and dysfunction associated with this condition.
Hand and finger joint pain due to De Quervain’s tenosynovitis and arthritis make everyday tasks a hassle. Contact Dr. Simon to learn how injection therapy can help you!
1. Arthritis/hip joint replacement alternative
2. Labral tears/surgery alternative.
Try Injection Therapy as an Alternative to Hip Replacements or Surgery
Medical Injection Therapy treats:
1.Arthritis and Hip Joint Replacement Alternatives
Injection Therapy For Arthritis and Hip Joint Replacement Alternatives
Hip arthritis is very common since it’s a principal weightbearing joint in the body. Injection therapy for hip joint pain provides a nonsurgical alternative and can delay the need for joint replacements in those that prefer to avoid hip surgery. Injection therapy can reduce stiffness and hip pain, improving daytoday function.
Using Injection Therapy for Labral Tears
Labral tears of cartilage in the hip can be debilitating, but can respond well to RegenerVate Medical Injection Therapy. Consider this option before hip surgery, and always avoid cortisone in these labral tears cortisone is degenerative and will not deal with the actual problem.
Before resorting to hip joint replacements or hip surgery, contact our specialists to learn about alternative medicine and our injection therapy treatments.
Deal With Knee Pain, Tears, and Arthritis Using Injection Therapy
Medical Injection Therapy treats
1.Quadricep Tendon Pain and Tears
2.Patellar Tendon Pain and Tears
3.Knee Arthritis and Knee Joint Replacement Alternatives
4.Meniscal or Cartilage TearsQuadricep tendon pain/tears
Using Injection Therapy for Quadricep Tendon Pain and Tears
This tendon is above the kneecap, and when injured, produces chronic pain with climbing or descending stairs, running and jumping. Quadricep tendon pain or tears can be successfully remedied with RegenerVate Medical Injection Therapy options.
Using Injection Therapy for Patellar Tendon Pain and Tears
This tendon is below the kneecap, and when injured is nicknamed ‘jumper’s knee’. Patellar tendonitis is a common injury in basketball, volleyball and track and field athletes. It’s also seen in knee arthritis as there can be more force placed through this tendon due to an abnormal gait when arthritis is present.
Injection Therapy as an Alternative Treatment For Knee Arthritis
The knee joint is commonly affected with arthritis. RegenerVate Medical Injection Therapy can reduce the pain and stiffness of knee arthritis, and can help postpone, or even completely prevent, the need for joint replacement knee surgery.
Using Injection Therapy for Meniscal or Cartilage Tears
A meniscal tear is a common source of pain in the knee, and these injuries are seen from teenage to senior years. As we age, these meniscus tears can be stubborn and rarely heal. If symptoms persist in these situations, injection therapy is the therapy of choice. Losing cartilage, which is often what happens during knee surgery, will predispose your knee to earlier osteoarthritis as you age. Avoiding this is paramount, and the younger you are, the more important this is.
Don’t cut out your meniscus until you look into RegenerVate Medical Injection Therapy options! Contact Dr. Simon to learn why how our regenerative approach can save you from knee joint replacements and surgery.
1. Tendon injuries/tears
2. Shoulder joint arthritis/joint replacement alternative
3. Acromioclavicular joint arthritis/surgery alternative.
Injection Therapy as an Alternative to Shoulder Surgery or Joint Replacements
Medical Injection Therapy treats:
1.Tendon Injuries and Rotator Cuff Tears
2.Shoulder Joint Arthritis and Joint Replacement Alternatives
3.Acromioclavicular Joint Arthritis and Surgery Alternatives
Using Injection Therapy for Tendon Injuries and Rotator Cuff Tears
Torn tendons of the shoulder, especially the ‘supraspinatus’ and ‘biceps’ tendons, are a common source of shoulder pain. Unfortunately, in the majority of cases of these torn rotator cuffs in people over 40, they do not heal on their own, and may be a source of ongoing shoulder pain. Medical Injection Therapy is a great way to deal with these injuries.
Injection Therapy as a Shoulder Joint Arthritis Treatment
Arthritis of many types can affect the shoulder (glenohumeral) joint, which is a ballandsocket joint. Many people with shoulder arthritis also have tendon tears these patients are usually poor candidates for surgery, as this combination of problems negatively affects surgical outcomes. Injection therapy is a great alternative if shoulder joint pain is persistent.
Injection Therapy for Acromioclavicular Joint Arthritis
This is the joint on top of the shoulder, often producing a visible bump in this area, and chronic pain in some individuals. Trying to help regenerate the inside of this joint, rather than operating, can help many patients with this type of shoulder joint pain.
There are better alternatives to surgery or joint replacements for shoulder pain or torn rotator cuffs, like our injection therapy.
1. Hip tendon pain/hip flexor pain/tears
2. Hamstring tendon origin pain
3. Quadricep and hamstring muscle tears 4. Groin (adductor) tears.
Try Injection Therapy to Reduce Pain and Promote Healing in Upper Leg Injuries
Medical Injection Therapy treats:
1.Hip Tendon Pain and Hip Flexor Pain/Tears
2.Hamstring Tendon Origin Pain
3.Quadricep and Hamstring Muscle Tears
4.Groin (Adductor) TearsHip tendon pain/hip flexor pain/tears
Using Injection Therapy for Hip Tendon Pain and Hip Flexor Pain/Tears
Hip flexor pain coming from one of the hip flexor tendons/muscles in the front of the hip is common in individuals doing explosive running, like track athletes, field sport players (football, soccer) and court sport players (basketball, tennis). Sometimes, these muscles/tendons tear, either suddenly, or over time an ongoing tear or general hip flexor pain can be remedied with RegenerVate Medical Injection Therapy .
Using Injection Therapy for Hamstring Tendon Pain
This problem is very common in runners, especially those who are over 40. Hamstring tendon pain can be aggravated with sitting, hamstring stretching and running. Tears are sometimes present, but degeneration in the hamstring attachment to the pelvis is consistent. Targeted injection therapy can stimulate repair and ease hamstring tendon pain.
Using Injection Therapy for Quadricep and Hamstring Muscle Tears
A quad muscle tear can happen suddenly with explosive running or chronic overuse, again, typically seen in runners. As the tear tries to heal, scar tissue can form, which sometimes produces chronic pain. Early intervention with injection therapy can help stimulate normal muscle regrowth and avoid the growth of excess, pain producing scar tissue around the quad muscle tear.
Using Injection Therapy for Groin (Adductor) Tears
A pulled groin or tear can happen when the leg suddenly slips sideways, often during a fall on a slippery surface, or during repetitive strain activities like hockey, running and soccer. These are painful, mimicking the pain associated with a hip joint injury. A pulled groin or tear responds well to injection therapy.
1. Tendon pain/tears/surgery alternative
2. TFCC (triangular fibrocartilage complex) tears
3. Ligament tears/surgery alternative
4. Carpal tunnel syndrome
Alleviating Wrist Stress With Injection Therapy
Medical Injection Therapy treats
1.Tendon Pain and Tears
2.TFCC (Triangular Fibrocartilage Complex) Tears
3.Ligament Tears and Wrist Surgery Alternatives
4.Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Using Injection Therapy for Tendon Pain and Tears
Wrist tendons are under constant stress, especially in those working consistent hours on a computer. Various sports and activities also cause wrist tendon pain, including racquet sports, weight lifting and gardening. Sometimes these tendons have small tears in them, and healing can be stubborn. Before resorting to surgery, RegenerVate Medical Injection Therapy should be considered for wrist pain relief.
Using Injection Therapy for TFCC (Triangular Fibrocartilage Complex) Tears
The triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC) is a cartilage disc between the ulna and the triquetrum bones of the wrist. A TFCC tear can produce chronic pain and sometimes clicking in the wrist. TFCC tears are a result of falling on an outstretched hand, repetitive strain, or jamming the wrist while playing a racquet sport. RegenerVate Medical Injection Therapy can stimulate healing in many of these injuries.
Using Injection Therapy for Ligament Tears and Wrist Surgery Alternatives
A fall onto an outstretched hand can tear ligaments in the wrist, leading to chronic wrist pain. Often, these ligaments can be stimulated to heal with injection therapy.
Using Injection Therapy for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Before you accept a cortisone injection, and definitely before you accept surgery, consider, RegenerVate Medical Injection Therapy for carpal tunnel syndrome. Our injections into the carpal tunnel can relieve symptoms that result from the median nerve being compressed, or pinched, in the wrist.
Using Injection Therapy for Wrist Arthritis
Wrist arthritis may result from prior wrist trauma/broken bones. It isn’t common, but when it happens, it can be very painful and debilitating. Before considering wrist fusion/surgery, consider injection therapy alternatives for wrist arthritis.
