At age 71 I sought stem cell to turn the clock back on thumb arthritis and a grade 4 full-thickness tear in the shoulder, both of which were disabling me from playing competitive table tennis. For these objectives I won the lottery by finding Dr. Leiber. At 6 weeks post procedure I am back on the court playing better than ever. AMAZING! Dr. Leiber is the consummate expert in the field of stem cell. I have friends with similar issues who went elsewhere, spent less money, obtained lesser results and are not back on the court. Do your due diligence for sure, and then meet with Dr. Leiber for the best possible outcome.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 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

I had the plasma injections on my lower back 6 weeks ago. The day after the procedure, I felt like I’d been poked several times by a needle, but that’s it, and then since then have felt great. No lower back pain whatsoever, and I was a paratrooper for 11 years with 4 bulging disks in my lumbar region. Thanks Dr. Leiber and team!!!read more
