    $\begingroup$ What do you mean by "theoretically"? Regenerate what? Toe nails, for example, are easily regenerated. Livers, less so. As it stands, this question is too broad for this site. $\endgroup$ – terdon Jan 8 '13 at 17:10

Regeneration - or actions perceived as regeneration by popular culture - depend highly on age and specific type of cells (epithelial tissue cells are a fine example). But you can't regenerate a leg-bone once removed.
