Regenerative Medicine is a type of science which deals with replacing, engineering or regenerating human cells, tissues and organs to restore or replace normal human function. The focus of this is to use the bodies only healing processes to bring back the function that has been lost for whatever reason. At Colorado Medical Solutions we utilize the most cutting edge Regenerative Medicine Procedures to help restore the function that has been lost by potentially alleviating the pain that has inhibited normal function.
We know by now that many people have heard about the incredible stories of stem cell therapy, whether it be through the news, sports-broadcast, word-of-mouth, podcast, or some other medium. Now, people are asking how stem cells are being used, what they are, and why they are such a hot-topic of debate. At Colorado Medical Solutions, we offer the most comprehensive and cutting-edge treatments and can education our patients fully on everything that they need to know.
Platelet Rich Plasma therapy (PRP therapy) has been around several decades. This procedure consists of isolating the healing properties of the blood that then can be injected into almost any area in the body to increase the healing potential. Many people opt for PRP for a nagging injury rather than utilizing harmful corticosteroids that are commonly utilized in the medical realm.
An exosome is an actual thing that is much smaller than a stem cell. It is understood that when stem cells want to initiate healing that this is actually accomplished by the release of lots of these tiny exosomes. What we have accomplished is isolating these tiny particles into a vial that can be injected much like stem cells can be injected. Because there are no cells this treatment is considered acellular.
Bone marrow is a soft spongy tissue present inside bones that form blood cells. Bone marrow aspirate involves a comfortable and less invasive procedure. It is a 30-40-minute procedure where the skin and tissues are anesthetized and marrow blood is withdrawn using a needle. The blood from bone marrow contains stem cells. This procedure can be done at the same time as a bone marrow biopsy.
Umbilical cord allograft is a dehydrated, minimally manipulated, non-viable cellular epicord for homologous use. The Epicord is a thick, unique membrane derived from the umbilical cord, the structure of which protects the veins and arteries. It is derived from the umbilical cord blood. Umbilical allograft therapy is one of the most amazing advancements in medicine. Umbilical allograft therapy is a major innovation in regenerative medicine.
