Stem Cell Treatments

Dr Kirkor, together with his colleague Dr Martynas Juozaitis, has set up Algocells, a regenerative orthopaedic clinic affiliated with Regenexx, the renowned pioneering regenerative orthopaedic organisation from the United States, currently consisting of over 45 clinics worldwide. Algocells is the only Regenexx clinic in Europe and the UK.

Algocells is registered with Care Quality Commission and complies with relevant national and international regulations. The clinic employs the use of patients’ own stem cells and platelet-rich plasma in state-of-the-art treatments for spine, discs, joints, ligaments and so on without the need of having a potentially risky operation.

Algocells utilises Regenexx patented procedures and stem cell processing in its own on-site laboratory. Both Dr Kirkor and Dr Juozaitis have completed extensive training with Regenexx clinic in Colorado, USA and continue their professional development in this area by attending several courses and conferences every year.

Dr Kirkor is one of very few specialist utilising, with great success, platelet rich plasma injections for the treatment of neck instability (Cranio-Cervical Joints instability) and cervicogenic headaches. He has developed his own original treatment method for degenerated discs, involving regenerative injection and pulsed radiofrequency stimulation.

The Algocells clinic is open on Mondays and Tuesdays 10:00 - 16:00 by appointment only.

See what patients are saying about Dr Zbigniew Kirkor

Injections worked really well for first 3 weeks, pain in my left ankle was completely gone and my right ankle was atleast 75% better. Now the pain is slowly coming back but definitely not to the same level as before the injections I am back to doing all my activities now ( apart from running). I am really glad that I went for the injections, I would say my left ankle is 60 - 70% better and my right is 50% better now Thank you all again
