    One of my co-residents is in on this. Seems like our version of the Laser Spine Institute.

    I'm in the Network. It's a flexible/lab-based processing platform that allows you to formulate and concentrate orthobiologics more than what is typically possible from a kit-based centrifuge system. I can't vouch for everything Chris writes on his blog, but I can attest a flexible tissue-processing platform is more useful than what most device managers are putting out there.

    He'd have a lot more credibility if he knew how to read a study (JAMA RFA garbage) and not use that one as his evidence against RFA. Funny how he doesn't cite any evidence for regen med for facet pain in this blog post.

    He built a better centrifuge? No. It is a marketing scam.

    Maybe regennex can get 2x 10 to the 23 stem cells from bone marrow than 1x 10 the 23. Certainly sounds impressive to patients that they get twice the stem cells for twice the price.

    It's all pretty easy to reverse engineer if you just read the Methods section of the peer reviewed literature in the field. It's always struck me as ironic how much time and money people in the Regen Med arena put into protecting their IP when they're simultaneously publishing in the peer-reviewed/scientific public domain!

    When is he going to have studies coming out on his stem cells?

    they also limit the docs using it per capita based on some calculations they have done and placing certain quotas per mo on the docs who currently use it giving a feeling of exclusivity I suppose??? but for a very expensive price (which I personally dont think is right having think about reaching certain quotas)

    The problem with Centeno is that he basically knocks ANYTHING that isn't stem cells if you read his blog.

    So he basically wants to eliminate everything but his stem cell/PRP treatments including all orthopedic surgeries, all back surgeries, other IPM treatments that don't include stem cells/PRP, etc.

    Although I can appreciate him pushing regenerative medicine, he has been going overboard in attacking everyone else.
