Hip Labral Tear Recovery Without Surgery

Can You Treat Hip Labrum Tears Without Surgery?

If you’ve been told a labral tear is causing your hip pain and surgical repair is your only solution, we suggest you evaluate all of your options. And those options extend beyond hip labrum surgery.

At Rejuvenexx, we’ve successfully treated hip labrum tears without surgery. Whether a hip labrum tear is due to an acute injury or a degenerative condition, interventional orthopedic procedures can reduce pain and may help your body use its own abilities to heal hip labrum tears without surgery, resulting in shorter recovery times and fewer potential complications than invasive hip surgeries.

What Are the Risks of Hip Labrum Surgery?

Unfortunately, hip labrum surgery is often unsuccessful. In fact, in one 2014 study, 45% of patients who underwent arthroscopic hip surgery for labral tears had poor results within, on average, only five years after surgery. 1
Orthopedic surgeons may not tell you this, but surgical “cleanup” of a labral tear means removing part of the labrum, which can ultimately result in degeneration and osteoarthritis in the joint.

How Does Rejuvenexx Work?

At Rejuvenexx, we invented a new approach to orthopedic care we call Interventional Orthopedics. This minimally invasive alternative to hip surgery involves the use of image guidance technology to precisely inject your own bone marrow concentrate — which contains stems cells — directly where it’s needed to repair damaged tissue in the hip joint structure. 2-3

The cells in your bone marrow concentrate work at the site of your injury to promote the growth of new, healthy tissue that aids in the stabilization of your hip joint for better function and mobility. 4

Rejuvenexx Procedures for Hip Tendon Tears

During appointments, Rejuvenexx physicians examine your body in motion and may use ultrasound to observe the inner workings of the hip in real time. This gives them a more accurate picture of what’s contributing to your pain, how function is affected, and the root cause of the problem.

Once you’ve been evaluated, your physician will customize a treatment plan based on your specific needs. Our treatments include:

Rejuvenexx-SD: a patented protocol using bone marrow concentrate that contains stem cells

Rejuvenexx-SCP: a proprietary formulation of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) that’s more concentrated than what a basic bedside centrifuge can produce

Rejuvenexx-PL: platelet lysate, which is a highly specialized derivative of platelet-rich plasma (PRP)

BEFORE and AFTER Procedure MRI Images

Take a look at the outcomes of a patient who chose to have a Rejuvenexx procedure instead of surgery.

Scroll to the right to see the MRI of the hip before treatment and to the left to see the outcome. The BEFORE image shows a torn labrum (the triangle-shape space inside the dashed yellow circle). Once treated, the area as seen on the AFTER image will be almost uniformly dark, indicating no tear or a significantly improved tear.
