If you really think about it, do you think adding a "FEE" like this would make this feel any more Star Trek? No it would fact it would stray away from it.
Depending on the injury, your Starship may not be able to handle it. It has been commented several times in the series that Star Bases have advanced medical facilities than a typical Star Ship. Picard had to go to a Star Base to get repairs done on his artificial heart on one occasion.

Think of the regenerators as additional supply kits that an on board medical officer can use to jurry rig a surgical bay to treat a more severe injury.
