ORIGEN provides personalized orthopedic care based on your unique needs and goals for optimal health.
We aim to restore your body’s best function with treatments that target the root cause of your musculoskeletal pain.
For more than a decade we’ve refined our understanding of unique, regenerative and integrative procedures to effectively treat orthopedic injuries without surgery.
What is Integrative Regenerative Orthopedics?
Serving to unify separate things; combining allopathic and complementary holistic health principles.
Able to regenerate, to grow, or to be renewed or restored, especially after being damaged.
A branch of medicine focuses on the health of the musculoskeletal system (muscles, bones, joints, ligaments, and tendons)
Integrative Regenerative Orthopedics is our unique approach to restore the optimal function and health of your musculoskeletal system — they are sides of the same coin.
That’s why ORIGEN’s proprietary integrative treatments focus on both.
Commonly treated conditions
What are the benefits of Integrative Regenerative Orthopedic treatments?
- Natural pain relief instead of prescription medications
- Increased healing potential instead of symptom/pain management
- Improved mobility and function
- Faster recovery time than surgical procedures
- Reduced time away from sports, work, or daily activities
ORIGEN provides Integrative Regenerative Orthopedic treatments
At ORIGEN we provide the latest regenerative therapies and sports-medicine treatments, including, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, prolotherapy, and regenerative cell injection therapy.
These treatments harness your body’s natural ability to heal itself after injury, or aging/degeneration from life!
These innovative, minimally invasive injection treatment options are used to alleviate pain and symptoms from joint, tendon and spine injuries by stimulating a healing response in the injured tissues.
The goal of this type of treatment is to target the root source of the pain and injured tissue to accelerate healing, rather than masking the symptoms with conventional treatments such as corticosteroid (cortisone) injections.
This is coupled with functional rehabilitation in physical therapy, for restoration of movement and strength, to quickly return you to the activities you love.
Regenerative Cellular Therapy
Regenerative cells in your body are able to develop into many different types of cells. Those cells can trigger healing and replacement of damaged tissue such as cartilage in a knee joint or a tear in a shoulder tendon.
Powerful regenerative cells can be extracted and isolated from the bone marrow of your hip bone (ilium) through an in-office procedure under local anesthesia.
The cells are then returned to your body by injection, into the area of injured tissue, to stimulate healing.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy
Platelet-rich plasma therapy uses your blood platelets to heal soft tissue injuries. You’ve already experienced the healing power of platelets when you’ve healed from a cut or other small injury.
The growth factors released from platelets stimulate the primary healing action.
Platelets can be isolated and then returned to your body, by injection into the area of injured tissue, to stimulate healing. The platelets are obtained by a standard blood draw from your arm.
PRP also plays a critical role in activating your body’s own regenerative cells to stimulate healing of an injury where tendons and ligaments have been damaged.
Prolotherapy is a treatment originally introduced in the 1950s that doesn’t use cells from your body.
Instead, a precise injection of an irritant such as dextrose (sugar water) is used to trigger a healing response in your body. This action has been shown to stimulate the production of new collagen which can help heal and strengthen injured tissue.
What do ORIGEN’s patients have to say?
I am thrilled with my experience with Rejuv Medical Southwest. All of my interactions with Dr. Tait and staff have been excellent. They are professional, organized and run a positive, patient-oriented clinic. I left my first visit with all the information I needed to make an informed decision about treatment for my knee problems. My regenerative cell treatment was six months ago. My results have been amazing - truly life changing.
I saw Dr. Tait right before Christmas to get my knee drained and injected w a regenerative therapy and i couldn’t be happier and praise him enough. I’ve been to multiple doctors to treat my knee and my experience at Rejuv Medical has been far superior than the rest. He truly has hands of Gold, takes his time, cares about his patients and makes sure you are comfortable and painless during procedures. I was not asked to write this review, i just think people need to know how great he is. Thanks so much Dr. Tait and staff. I’m already sending you a referral.
I had seen 3 other orthopedic surgeons for a knee injury in 2016. None of them had any solutions. They all said I did not need surgery. I did 4 months of rehab with no results to improve my knee. I had done PRP at a local medical office with very minimal results. After seeing Dr. Tait and my knee had degenerated even more and I was in pain daily with any activity, walking, lifting etc. He recommended regenerative cellular therapy injections. The day after the procedure my pain was reduced 95 percent. Absolutely no pain with walking. Completed 6 weeks of physical therapy and my pain and swelling are still improving. Almost 100 % pain free. I can now do stairs with no pain. I have my follow up PRP in a few weeks and that is supposed to improve my results even more. At 50 years old I was not ready to give up..but after almost 5 years of searching for a solution this has been a miracle cure for me. I thought I was never going to be normal again. I am so thankful for Dr. Tait and this procedure. It has been life changing!!
My wife was a patient of Dr. Tait and was being treated for a sore shoulder. She had very limited mobility and did not want to just take pain pills. At first we were uncertain about the treatment Dr. Tait suggested. We had never heard of PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma). After her first treatment, she was sure she was on the right track. The second treatment was very successful and she was pain free. We would definitely recommend this treatment to anyone especially those patients that do not want to live on pain killers for extended periods of time.
Dr. Tait is a wonderful doctor. I worked with him for a year regarding some issues that had plagued me since I was a young child. When I saw him, I was no longer able to walk more than 5 or so steps and was at my wit's end at age 48. He encouraged me to try a Physical Therapist who immediately saw something that was not noticed by the other PT's I'd worked with - and she put me on the path to recovery. Dr. Tait and I kept working together - he helped me change my diet, which had a multitude of benefits for my health. After a year of working together, I had some great improvements, but still some underlying issues that had to eventually be taken care of with minor surgery. Dr. Tait referred me to an amazing surgeon - and a successful surgery. However, had I not made the initial changes to improve my health and physical body, the surgery would have not been as successful. Dr. Tait's kindness, patience and ability to listen and ask questions outside the box made all the difference in my quality of life. I will forever be grateful for that. As well, his staff is top notch. Always helpful and smiling. Always encouraging even when I was at my lowest.
I have been seeing Dr.Tait for several years, after I was told by an orthopedic surgeon, after one X-ray, that all that could be done for my knee was a total knee replacement. I was so fortunate to be given Dr. Tait’s contact info. I have had regenerative cellular treatment and PRP on both knees over the years because of injuries and resulting arthritis, and I have been extremely happy with all the results.
And here’s the secret to why our patient’s get better results than most clinics, or respond when they didn’t when treated elsewhere:
More importantly, however, is his ‘whole body’ philosophy about health care that has changed my ways of thinking about my body and my health. I am much smarter about my decisions in food, supplements, exercise, and my overall lifestyle. If you are committed to keeping your body healthy without lots of drugs or surgeries, he is the doctor for you.

And Don shared:
Dr. Tait spoke with me about the importance of healthy eating & use of supplements, in preparing my body for the regenerative cellular treatment. I engaged him to do the procedure. He performed the procedure in February. The procedure was basically pain free. I went to physical therapy 3x week for 6 weeks. Three months later, Dr. Tait performed PRP. Again, pain free.
Presently, I am basically pain free. When I do experience pain, it is in the 1 - 3 range. The knee is stable. I perform several of the PT exercises and stretching exercises daily. I also use Turmeric & Collagen products daily, as recommended by Dr. Tait.
