If you think that regenerative medicine may be the solution to your painful condition, our doctors offer free consultations to help you understand how these innovative treatments can heal you.
What is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative medicine stems from progressive science in the field of molecular biology. Its principles are based on the human body’s ability to heal itself naturally. Regenerative treatments address the root cause of your pain and heal the damage that is causing it, providing permanent relief so that pain doesn’t return in the future.
We offer regenerative cell therapy (using regenerative cellular tissue aka stem cells and amniotic fluid) and platelet-rich plasma injections. During your free consultation, the doctor will assess your condition to determine whether one or a combination of these regenerative treatments are suitable to help with your unique situation.
Regenerative Cell Therapy
“Stem cell therapy” has recently come to be used as a blanket term for any treatment involving stem cells, but this is not correct. The regenerative cell therapy we offer is unlike conventional stem cell therapy that relies on stem cells extracted from the patient’s bone marrow or adipose tissue.
Regenerative cell therapy uses very young stem cells sourced from Wharton’s jelly, found in newborns’ umbilical cords. Based on stem cell research, mesenchymal stem cells are highly proficient at changing into a variety of cells needed by the body. This makes them a great choice for conditions involving damaged body tissue. When injected into the body's affected area, mesenchymal stem cells deliver a powerful boost to repair or replace injured tissue such as muscle, bone, and connective tissue.
Another effective regenerative option is amniotic fluid therapy. The amniotic fluid used in our injections is, like our treatments containing stem cells, sourced from carefully screened donors during cesarean delivery. Amniotic fluid is rich in many substances essential to the body’s healing processes, including amino acids, collagen substrates, cytokines, hyaluronic acids, and polyamides. An injection of amniotic fluid stimulates the processes of tissue regeneration.
Platelet-rich plasma is perhaps the most versatile regenerative treatment, effective for a wide range of painful conditions. Platelets play an essential role in healing and contain multiple growth factors. When concentrated into platelet-rich plasma and injected into the affected area of your body, they stimulate the healing response, allowing for a more rapid recovery. Platelet-rich plasma is made from a small sample of your own blood. This makes the treatment low risk to one experiencing rejection or allergy.
Benefits of Regenerative Medicine
The regenerative treatments we offer at our center are proven safe and effective. Treatments are minimally invasive and do not involve lengthy procedures or downtime after treatment. Regenerative medicine can help heal a variety of conditions involving damaged or degraded tissue, such as:
- Shoulder conditions including a torn rotator or torn labrum
- Knee pain from damaged or degraded cartilage, an MCL tear, an ACL injury, patellar tendonitis, and other causes
- Pain in the elbow, hip, or other joints
- Back pain from a herniated disc or other cause
- Muscle and ligament injuries
- Foot, ankle, and heel pain (e.g., plantar fasciitis)
- Weakness, tingling, or numbness in the hands, feet, or other parts of the body
