Regenerative Medicine

Definition:

Regenerative medicine is the process of creating living, functional tissue to repair or replace tissue or organ which has been lost due to age, disease, damage, or congenital defects.   There has been a surge of interest in to use of regenerative treatments for musculoskeletal disorders.  Our team of medical experts is ready to bring you closer to a symptom-free life today.  By using innovative, cutting-edge regenerative medicine techniques, our practice is able to treat the cause instead of symptom management.  PRP is NOT associated with side effects that we expect from synthetic materials such as steroids.  In most cases, there is no need for repetitive PRP injections.

PRP treatment  (Platelet Rich Plasma) 

Platelets are a component of your blood. They have a variety of functions including developing clots to help stop bleeding. When platelets are activated by injury, degeneration, or inflammation. They play a vital role in the healing of tissues including tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is simply a concentrated dose of your own blood that contains large amounts of viable platelets, growth factors, and pro-healing (regenerative)  substances. It is natural and safe.    To read more about PRP  click here.

Bone Marrow Aspirate 

Bone marrow aspirate from certain bones (for example hip ) contains stem cells.  In medicine, bone marrow transplant which is transferring the bone marrow aspirate and infusing it back into the circulation has been used for certain blood cancers.  In the most recent years, clinicians have shown interest in using bone marrow aspirate for the treatment of skeletal disorders including osteoarthritis.  Although more studies need to be done in the future regarding efficacy and safety and to assure reproducible outcomes, early studies have shown promise.  To read more about osteoarthritis and regenerative treatments including bone marrow aspirate.  To read more about osteoarthritis and regenerative treatments including bone marrow aspirate, click here
