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.
You may be asking, what is regenerative medicine and why should I choose it as an alternative verses more traditional methods of pain management? Well the difference is just that, in the managing. Our regenerative medicine patients have seen amazing results and have made leaps and bounds with their chronic and acute conditions. Check out our testimonials page and watch some of the videos patients that have recovered from debilitating pain have left us. Regenerative medicine uses modalities such as PRP and Stem Cell Therapy (read more below) in order to aid the body in creating a healing environment where it is actually able to regenerate tissue. Thus, once the tissue is in a more healed state the pain goes away. On the contrary, surgery can be invasive and alters the body’s natural state. This can make other healing and pain management modalities obsolete since the body is compromised. In addition, the opioid epidemic in this country has gotten out of control as more and more doctors have been unethically prescribing pain medications at alarming rates. Pain medications can be highly addictive and only mask the body’s pain issue. This leaves the pain’s underlying cause at a continued risk and most likely will become only more debilitating over time. Furthermore, pain medications are also a burden on the body’s detox system which includes vital organs such as the liver and kidneys.
Some of the advantages of our regenerative medicine Denver treatments include:
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.
