Benjamin J. Newton, MD


Dr. Newton joined StemCell Arts, an affiliate of National Spine & Pain Centers, in 2016. As a board-certified, fellowship-trained sports medicine physician, his professional passion includes regenerative medicine and interventional orthopedics. He has extensive experience evaluating and treating non-operative orthopedic, sport injury, and musculoskeletal complaints of the spine and extremities. Dr. Newton utilizes regenerative therapies to help patients of all ages get back to an active lifestyle.

Double board-certified in sports and family medicine, Dr. Newton also holds additional training certificates in musculoskeletal Ultrasound and Fluoroscopy. This training is essential to the precision required for Stem CellPlatelet, and Prolotherapy procedures.

During residency in Vermont, Dr. Newton treated high school athletes and volunteered at injury clinics at nearby ski resorts. As a sports medicine fellow in Cincinnati, he had valuable experiences with Beacon Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine. Here, he was able to evaluate and treat professional and elite level athletes. During this same fellowship, Dr. Newton spent time at spring training in Arizona with the Cincinnati Reds, as well as home games in Cincinnati. He completed a second fellowship in interventional orthopedics and regenerative medicine with Regenexx at the Centeno-Schultz Clinic in Colorado and remained on staff, following its conclusion.

Dr. Newton enjoys being able to assist both physicians and patients with regenerative and interventional orthopedic medicine. He is often given the opportunity to share his expertise and knowledge by teaching musculoskeletal ultrasound courses at annual conferences, such as the American Association of Orthopaedic Medicine. He also participates in a number of volunteer experiences both nationally, as a physician at Ironman triathlons, and internationally, in rural Mexico, treating patients with a myriad of orthopedic complaints.

Outside of the office, Dr. Newton loves being with his wife and four young children. When they’re asleep, he trains for and competes in endurance events, such as Ironman triathlons. Dr. Newton is fluent in Spanish.

Dr. Newton is now offering Wednesday evening hours for new patient consultations and procedures. He is seeing patients every Wednesday 9:30 am – 6:00 pm.

What Patients Are Saying

“He was top notch from the first consultation to the last time he checked up on me. I have recommended Dr. Newton and Regenexx to everyone that I know and I have no doubt that he would be as great to them as he was, and still is, to me. I thank God every single day for Regenexx and Dr. Newton. He has given me my life back and I will be forever grateful.” – JD from Philidelphia, PA
