Regenerative medicine is the term applied to a field of medicine that works to repair and regenerate human disease and injury. Conventional treatment often applies a “band-aid” to medical conditions, which are not able to effectively repair the issue at hand. Examples would include conditions such as arthritis in a joint, organ failure, cardiac issues, neuropathy, etc. Regenerative Medicine does not just involve stem cell therapy. Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy also helps repair and regenerate tissue, while there are minimal stem cells actually in the fluid.
Stem cells are human body's master cells, with the potential to grow into any one of the body's more than 200 cell types. They are a veritable “blank slate”. They can replicate into more unspecialized stem cells, or they may react to the environment in which they are placed by receiving signals from that environment telling them which differentiation “pathway” to go down. Stem cells contribute to the body's ability to renew and repair its tissues.
Procedures available for stem cell therapy include localized or IV injection with bone marrow harvesting or amniotic derived stem cell therapy. The procedures are all performed as an outpatient, with each procedure taking less than an hour.
There is an extensive list of conditions that benefit from regenerative medicine procedures. Here is a partial list of them:
• Achilles Tendonitis & Tears
• Ankle arthritis
• Ankle Sprains & Instability
• Arthritis – Degenerative & Rheumatoid
• Back Pain
• Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
• Degenerative Disc Disease
• Foot Pain
• Hip Pain – Arthritis, Tendonitis
• Knee Pain – Arthritis, Tendonitis
• Ligament Injuries
• Neck Pain
• Osteoarthritis – All Joints
• Patellar Tendonitis
• Rheumatoid Arthritis
• Runners Knee
• Shoulder Pain – Arthritis, Tendonitis
• Spinal Arthritis
• Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome
• Tennis Elbow
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
PRP works on the simple basis of utilizing your own natural platelets to instruct the body how to create new collagen for smoother, tauter, and all around better tones skin. The platelet solution made from your own purified blood is then introduced with injections or by using an automated micro needling system. .
PRP Rejuvenation, which stands for Platelet Rich Plasma, is a simple nonsurgical procedure which takes your own blood and turns it into a concentrated serum which is then injected back into your body to call in the natural collagen building process.
PRP is often considered for Facials, Hair Restorations and Joint Rejections.
