/PRNewswire/ -- Continental Benefits, a full-service Third Party Administrator focused on improving quality of care, has partnered with Regenexx, a network of leading interventional orthopedics clinics. The partnership allows Continental Benefits to offer its clients Regenexx procedures, which can intervene on up to 70% of elective orthopedic injuries where surgery was previously the only solution*.
"Treatment of musculoskeletal conditions is a large and fast growing area of healthcare spend - with the aging of the U.S. population, these costs are becoming a greater burden every year," said Continental Benefits CEO, Betsy Knorr
. "I am excited to provide our valued employer groups a high quality, clinically viable alternative to invasive orthopedic surgery."
Regenexx procedures involve precise injections of custom orthobiologics to treat approximately 40 orthopedic conditions. This interventional approach can help employers
reduce the cost of individual procedures by up to 70%, while reducing absenteeism and increasing employee satisfaction, all while decreasing the number of unnecessary orthopedic surgeries performed annually.
"Regenexx is looking forward to expanding our mission of producing the best possible patient outcomes for Continental Benefits and their clients through our innovative alternative to orthopedic surgery," said Regenexx CEO Jason Hellickson
. "Overuse and misuse of orthopedic surgery is prevalent in our healthcare system today. Our patented regenerative approach to treating common orthopedic conditions is transforming the care pathway of an orthopedic patient who can now avoid a surgical encounter with less risk and less downtime."
