Regenerative Medicine

Injury, age, and disease can damage tissues and organs within the body leading to pain and loss of function. Our bodies have an innate natural ability to heal from disease and traumatic injuries. Instead of only treating symptoms, regenerative medicine focuses on utilizing a combination of tools, such as cellular therapy, to help augment the natural healing process.

This promising field of medicine has the potential to heal or replace tissues damaged by either acute insult or chronic disease. 

Stem Cell Therapy

Millions of stem cells are found in every human, which the body uses as one way to repair itself. Multiple studies have demonstrated that when stem cells are injected at the site of diseased and/or damaged tissue, reconstruction of the tissue is indeed achievable. Stem cells can be collected from various tissue and organ sources; cord blood provides a rich source of adult stem cells. When stem cells are placed at the site of damaged tissue, they differentiate into specialized cells that begin to heal and repair the injured area. 

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections

Platelet-rich Plasma therapy is a form of regenerative medicine that utilizes your own natural growth factors to facilitate healing of damaged or injured tissues. A sample of the patient’s own blood is collected and then the plasma is concentrated and isolated. The activated platelets in platelet-rich plasma have concentrated growth factors that can accelerate the healing of ligaments, tendons, muscles, and joints. PRP injections utilize the patient’s very own natural healing system to help with musculoskeletal injuries.  

PRP Injections have various applicable conditions, such as:

ACUTE muscle/ligamentous injury, tendon injury, OSTEOARTHRITIS, and even has been shown to be effective in treating HAIR LOSS from androgenous alopecia (male pattern baldness).
