A one-day event, with clinical focus in Orthopaedics, Sports Medicine, Chronic Pain and Oral surgery. We will share successes and challenges in the clinical translation of Regenerative Medicine. From compliance to clinical data, marketing to practice management, attendees will walk away with practical and clinically viable solutions.



Regenerative medicine is emerging with great interest and hope from patients, industry, academia, and medical professionals. Cartilage, tendon and bone regeneration, restoration, or repair is one of the prime targets that remains largely unsolved, and many believe that regenerative medicine can possibly deliver solutions that can be widely used to address the current gap(s) in treatment. Many have made significant investment of time, resources, and facilities in recent years to provide new regenerative treatment options and advance medical care for patients.

Despite this, few reliable clinical data are available and can be used to support the efficacy of these approaches. RE.GA.IN.®, Regenerative Galeazzi Institute, is a centre of excellence that provides a clinical platform to ensure the best experience in regenerative medicine. Patients’ data are collected longitudinally through the most modern standard operative procedure and then interpreted to identify the most performing treatment for a given indication.


RE.GA.IN.® treats the patients only with selected medical devices, paying attention to their scientific quality and safety profile. RE.GA.IN.® activities are supported by the Research Laboratories of the Galeazzi Research Hospital to ensure a full characterization of the biological products produced in a custom manner for each patient.

During the RE.GA.IN.® 1st International Conference, designed to focus on regenerative medicine, we welcome the opportunity to share experience and opinion from medical professionals who have both an interest in, and have performed regenerative medicine procedures. Basic scientists and an outstanding international faculty will provide deep insights on the topic, encouraging lively debate, challenging questions with a desire to further develop skills in this surgical procedure, supported by the leading companies of the field.
