This treatment option is a form of molecular biology and tissue engineering that focuses on the intricate process of replacing, engineering or regenerating the cells, tissues, and organs in the human body. The goal of this treatment is to restore or establish normal functions to diseased, injured or impaired areas of the body. When you are injured or fighting disease, your body quickly responds by defending and healing. By harnessing your body’s natural response to injury, regenerative medicine is designed to utilize this ability to promote faster healing.
The cells in your body are the building blocks of tissues and these tissues are the basic unit for function throughout the body. Typically, the groups of cells in your body make and secrete their own support structures, known as the extracellular matrix. But this matrix does much more than simply support the cells in the body, it also works to relay various signaling molecules. Each of these signals has the ability to start a chain reaction that helps to determine what will happen to the cells. Utilizing advanced medical technology, we now have the ability to understand these signals and interact with their environment to speed the natural healing process.
Stem cells are special cells that have the ability to adapt and change into a specific type of cell. Most commonly, in medicine, they are used to turn into blood, skin, bone or nerve impulse-transmitting cells. Because they are highly adaptable, stem cells play an important role in the growth and repair process in the body. Additionally, stem cells are extremely helpful speeding the natural healing process in patients who are suffering from injury or disease.
Platelet-Rich Plasma or PRP is a rich concentration of platelets in the blood. Used in the clotting system. PRP is also heavily involved in the repair of injured areas in the body. With this type of therapy, we are able to utilize a portion of your own blood that has a platelet concentration above baseline to naturally promote faster healing in the body. This treatment is very effective in treating injured tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints, as well as a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions.
Through regenerative medicine, we are able to treat a variety of conditions and injuries, including:
In most cases, very minimal pain is experienced. Most commonly, this treatment option is very quick and only involves a simple injection. Depending on the area of the body that is being treated and the severity of the injury, guided imaging may also be used.
For most patients, there is little to no recovery time after completing the treatment. AS always, we will be there during every step of the process and will provide you with aftercare instructions that are tailored to fit your medical and lifestyle needs.
As with most advanced pain treatment methods, the cost for regenerative medicine therapy will vary greatly based on the type of pf product needed and your individual needs. While insurance coverage varies from state to state and providers, this treatment is not typically covered by insurance. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff is happy to work closely with you to explain the costs in detail and explore your finance options.
