Oswald Labs Announces Exclusive Partnership With Regenexx to Reduce Orthopedic Surgical Spend for Employers

Oswald Labs is excited to announce a unique partnership with Regenexx to offer access to non-surgical orthopedic alternatives to Oswald Lab’s self-funded employer groups

CLEVELAND – March 1, 2020 –  Oswald Labs, a cooperative effort of Oswald Companies and Spark360 designed to bring purposeful, positive disruption to the insurance sector through innovation, collaboration and experimentation, has partnered with Regenexx, a network of leading interventional orthopedics clinics. The partnership allows Oswald Companies to offer its clients Regenexx procedures, which effectively intervene on 70 percent of elective orthopedic injuries and conditions where surgery was previously the only solution*.

“We are proud to present our clients and self-funded employers with a new technology transforming orthopedic care and driving down costs,” said Bill Fisher, SVP, Practice Leader, Group Benefits at Oswald Companies.

Regenexx procedures involve precise injections of custom orthobiologics to treat approximately 40 orthopedic conditions.
