There are athletes and there are Doctors. Ron is one of those few who is both. This gives him special insight to both the pain and the performance demands of patients who refuse to quit.

I only wish I had learned of this sooner. In May, 2021 I underwent stem cell treatment on my knee and lower back. In 8 short weeks I have had amazing results. Prior to my treatment I struggled walking more than a mile and had consistent discomfort in most daily activities. My lower back was so painful I was put on array of anti inflammatories that only masked my pain. I love the outdoors and being active. My lifestyle was changing and not for the better. I learned of Regenexx through my employer. I researched and after having 2 hip replacements a few years ago I thought this was a much better option to surgery if I was a candidate. I met with Dr. Torrance to discuss my options and so glad I did. He is brilliant, passionate & professional .Committed to his field and patients.I would recommend Regenexx and Dr. Torrance to anyone.read more

I had a great experience with Dr Papas and the PRP treatment done on my knee, hip and shoulder (old sports injuries, tears on all of these areas).Dr Papas really listens and meets you were you are. I made him aware of the efforts and programs I was engaging in to help rehab from my injuries. I greatly appreciate that he partners with you to identify what level of support you need and doesn't just treat you like a statistics. I am in my 30s and weight 240, I had PRP done in May 2021.Now to the meat of it, I have/had lateral and medial miniscus tears on my left knee and was looking to having it scoped (I had already scoped my other knee which now has arthiritis). I also had labral tear and some damage to rotator cuff on my shoulder and hip labral tears. I did a lot of research and thought I give Regenexx a shot. I had PRP done previously by a knee surgeon but this was a completely different experience and it is all in the methodology.I was in constant pain on all three areas and had just learned to live with it. I wasn't expecting drastic response was just looking for some pain relieve. To my surprise my hip pain literally went away on day 1, like gone. Something that, IR, Red light therapy, cold lazer, PT, supplements had no impact on.As for my shoulder, this go me scared as I was in pain and had the shoulder popping for the first 4 to 6 weeks post procedure. Dr Papas warned me that this would happen but because of how good my knee and hip felt I was concerned that something had gone wrong. Week 7 all of the popping went away and pain was reduced by 70 to 80 percent.I don't usually give reviews but this has truly been life changing for, I was literally facing knee replacement surgery(yes you read that right). I had been wearing compression knee braces practically 24 hours a day 7 days a week for years and could not lay my leg straight without numbness and pain.I have not worn knee braces since I had the procedure done! I find it weird to walk around in shorts and to be able to see my knees rather than knee braces.I grew up playing sports and lifting, now that I am a parent I feared that I would not be able to coach and do what brought me so much joy with my kids. I don't feel this way anymore.Thank you, Dr Papasread more

I had a great experience with Dr. Papas and the staff at Regenexx Tampa Bay! I sustained a hip labral tear and was able to get evaluated by Dr. Papas, and he recommended a PRP injection to heal the area. After the procedure, PT as well as OMT therapy helped me resume normal activities a few months later, and an ultrasound scan reveals the tear has completely healed. That would not have been possible with physical therapy alone, which is all my GP had recommended. I'm convinced that interventional orthopedics like the treatment I had from Regenexx are a far superior solution to the standard care options offered by most doctors. If you are considering surgery or other treatment for an orthopedic injury of some kind, I highly recommend reaching out to Regenexx for a consultation, because they may be able to help you get back to your normal activities faster, with better long term healing and much less pain.read more

Dr Papas and the Tampa Regenexx staff are awesome! My procedure for a torn meniscus provided a full recovery with minimal downtime.

As someone who gets extremely nervous in any medical situation, I have truly never felt more comfortable than I did in this office. My appointment included a blood draw in the morning and the procedure in the afternoon. I was extremely nervous upon arrival for the blood draw and Anna took the time to talk me through everything. She gave me options on how we could do things and kept me distracted the whole time. She let me ask a ton of questions about my upcoming procedure and I was extremely pleased when I found out she would be there too. Once I returned for the procedure, I spoke with Dr Papas who also communicated with me throughout the entire process and made me feel as comfortable as possible in such a vulnerable position. He continuously asked how I was doing and updated me as to how much more we had left. Throughout the whole procedure Anna was there, being just as amazing and supportive. I had picked Regenexx for my procedure due to their extremely thorough consultation and beautiful offices. I dealt with Kimberly for the booking and payment process. She was very helpful and explained all of my options at length. Thank you so, so much to everyone at Regenexx! I cannot recommend them enough.read more

In 2014, at age 70, I had a 50% tear of my semimembranosis tendon behind my knee. I workout regularly, BodyPump, spin and outdoor cycling. I went to Dr. James Leiber at Regenexx, Sarasota, FL and he diagnosed the problem and did two PRP (platelet rich plasma) procedures, a month apart. It got me back to the gym and cycling. This year, age 77, I thought I had injured a muscle in the same leg while cycling. Very painful, Dr. Leiber did an ultrasound, found some minor tearing, and ordered an x-ray and MRI. To our amazement, the original semimembranosis tendon injury from 2014 had completely healed, and the pain from recent cycling was just a minor strain which went away with a some rest. He is extremely knowledgeable, skillful, asks great questions, and listens. I am fortunate to have him as my go-to for problems like this. His leading-edge Regenexx technology enables me to maintain a very active lifestyle.read more

A few years ago, I had a right rotator cuff stem cell procedure done by Dr James Leiber. The exam before the operation showed my rotator cuff was 90% torn. The exam also showed my right labrum was torn. The procedure was done in his out patient office. The operation was non-evasive (pain-free).I wore a shoulder sling for a few days then was given the go to take it off. I lifted my arm above my shoulders and there was no pain. For the next few weeks, I went to physical therapy to strengthen my shoulder and it wasn’t long before before my therapist excused me for everyday activities.I highly recommend Dr.James Leiber to you for any stem cell procedure that deals with any kind of possible orthopedic challenge you could be facing. It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made for my life.John Finchread more

The team was efficient, courteous and very professional. Dr Leiber performed a non invasive carpal tunnel procedure on both my hands and PRP on my trigger fingers. They worked quickly and seamlessly did their parts. The procedure was pain free. I am home recovering and healing nicely. I will return for my follow up this week to report all is going well. I have had three days of recovery and have only used Tylenol to keep the post procedure comfortable as I am healing. I can tell already that the mobility in my hands has returned. This was a great decision for me and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for alternatives to correct carpal tunnel and trigger finger issues. Great experience with a great team.read more

I consider Dr. Papas, his team and Regenexx the gold standard in orthobiologics. Within a 3-year period, I’ve had multiple areas treated with stem cells, PRP, Platelet Lysate (for my back) and most recently my own fat.I started seeing Dr. Papas for OMT. In the process we discussed some pain I was still having with my hamstring, wrist and hip which was waking me at night. He suggested a fat injection for my wrist and hamstring and PRP for my hip. Ultrasound showed my hamstring had considerable wear. I had a 60 to 70 percent tear in my hamstring before having stem cells with Regenexx in 2018. OMT was for a rib sliding and irritating a nerve causing a sharp pain in my chest. Dr. Papas is such a skilled OMT provider and with adjustments and PRP injected where the rib connects to my spine to strengthen it, the sharp pain has eased off tremendously. I’m now over 6 weeks post procedures and 90% pain free!! No more waking at night from hip pain!It’s very comforting to know that I can have future problems treated by Dr. Papas. He’s earned my trust and he and his team make you feel as comfortable as possible before and during your procedure. He’s very knowledgeable and professional with a caring and calm approach. Takes time to answer all questions and explain procedures. I urge anyone considering orthopedic surgery or dealing with joint pain to see Dr. Papas first. It may not be covered by insurance, but I consider it an investment in my health both physically and mentally. And at 71, I want to stay as active as I can. I’m back to enjoying activities I thought I’d have to give up. I had just about given up on my arthritic wrist thinking I would need surgery and now I’m back to including full body pushups in my work outs. Thank you so much, Dr. Papas and team!!read more

I came to Regenexx and meant with Dr. Papas in early March 2021. I suffered a spontaneous spinal epidural hematoma 10-30-2019. I had been told my current state of pain and inability to do everyday life was probably my best prognosis. Dr. Papas did the most thorough and informative exam I had had since my life changing event. He suggested Platelet-Rich Plasma treatment as a possible option to help me. He was very up front with me, stating My situation was a little unique.My first treatment was March 16th and I felt gradual improvement. By May I was walking with less pain and able to do more upright activities which I felt was about 70% improvement. I had a second treatment last week. I am looking forward to seeing how much farther my usefulness of my neck and mid back will improve.Thank you Dr. Papas and your team at Regenexx, Tampa Bay.Sheryl Runionread more

I had my initial consultation with Dr. Torrance and I was so very impressed. I am a Physical Therapist and I was so glad to see the amount of time he spent explaining to me what he saw, what he thought, what he thought was the best next step, and even the risks and benefits of that next step. From that moment on the staff has just been incredible. They promptly called me and got me scheduled for my procedure, provided me with answers to my questions, and sent me over all the information I needed! I'm eager to see whether this is going to be my "saving grace" but I highly recommend Regenexx and Dr. Torrance!

I had 4 areas treated - multiple tears in my shoulder [including the rotator cuff tendon complex and labrum], ankle, and wrist, as well as hip flexor tendonitis. I've been an athlete all my life and have had the attendant injuries that come with sports. I'm still, though in my 60s, extremely active - surfing, snowboarding, basketball, wind and kite surfing, football, running, golf, tennis, and pickleball [and willing to try anything]. The goal was to continue all these endeavors without limitation, while avoiding the pitfalls and extended rehab of multiple surgeries. Goal accomplished. I'm doing extremely well, now a little more than 3 months post-stem cell procedures. I'm very pleased and know that I will continue to improve even beyond where I am now. I have Dr. Leiber and his staff to thank for my progress, healing, and significant improvement. From day one, they have been first class in every respect. And Dr. Leiber is just a great individual - a physician who is very skilled and truly interested in your success. I could not be more thankful.read more
