We all carry stem cells throughout our bodies that act as “repairmen.” The procedures at Regen Orthopedics can activate your body’s own adult stem cells and blood platelets to stimulate healing and speed repair for bone, muscle, joint, soft tissue and nerve injuries.
Regenerative medicine can be particularly useful for patients who wish to avoid surgery or who no longer find relief from traditional treatments like cortisone injections.
Regenerative treatments activate the body’s natural healing process through an injection of the body’s own healthy cells that reduce inflammation and can stimulate tissue regeneration. The procedure takes healthy, regenerative cells from an area in which they are more concentrated, and injects them into the injured area of the body. The therapy can enable your body to better heal itself. Watch more here.
There are several different kinds of stem cells. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) have been found to be the most effective in orthopedic treatments and have the strongest potential to repair muscle, bone, joint and soft tissue injuries. Found primarily in bone marrow, these cells have the ability to self-replicate, reduce inflammation and differentiate into cartilage, bone, muscle and fat cells to help the body regenerate the lost tissue in the injured area. They can activate your body’s ability to heal itself.
The regenerative methods practiced at Regen Orthopedics include the use of your own, live adult stem cells from Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), adipose tissue and Bone Marrow Concentrate (BMC). Adult stem cells and other growth factors are found in these tissues and have the potential to alleviate a number of chronic orthopedic conditions, including arthritis, sports injuries, tendinitis, nerve injuries and more.
