WHAT IS REGENERATIVE MEDICINE?
Regenerative medicine involves harnessing your body’s own healing abilities to aid your recovery. Before we list some conditions that can be treated by regenerative medicine, it may be helpful to know a little bit more about each treatment we offer.
What Is Platelet-Rich Plasma?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP), or platelet concentrates, have been studied extensively since the 1990s. While similar products previously used in medicine (fibrin glue) are very expensive, PRP provides a cost-effective alternative. Plasma concentrates are a way to help the body finish the healing process and strengthen the weakened tissue. PRP is produced from a person’s own blood. It is a concentration of one type of cell, known as platelets, which circulate through the blood and are critical for blood clotting and release growth factors and mediators to aid in healing. Platelet-rich plasma can then be collected and delivered to an injured area of bone or soft tissue, such as a tendon or ligament. It is used for tendinopathies (tendon problems), in addition to problems with ligaments, muscles, meniscus, cartilage, bone, wound and intervertebral discs.
What Is tissue replacement therapy?
Tissue replacement therapy focuses on delivering cells to parts of the body that are in need. Stem cells come from a healthy donor. Once the stem cells have entered the treatment site, the regeneration process begins. Tissue replacement therapy is very safe as they are screened for all potential diseases and threats in government-regulated labs to ensure the highest level of safety. As a result, there is very minimal overall procedural risk.
