Regenerative Medicine Q & A

What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine involves naturally occurring cells using research in tissue engineering, stem cells, and molecular biology. Regenerative medicine treatments are designed to prompt your body to regenerate and create new tissues.

Regenerative medicine can treat:

  • Arthritis
  • Tendonitis
  • Cartilage damage
  • Meniscus damage
  • Muscle tears
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Osteoarthritis

If you don’t want to go the traditional route and opt for medications and surgery that can pose some unwanted risks or side effects, you might want to consider regenerative medicine.

What is platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP)?

PRP is a regenerative medicine treatment used to assist your body’s healing process.

Your blood is primarily made up of plasma and small solid components: platelets, and red and white blood cells. Platelets have various growth factors that are advantageous for healing injuries.

Platelet-rich plasma is plasma that contains more platelets than normal. This is achieved in a special centrifugation process where growth factors are concentrated until they’re five to 10 times richer than they appear in your blood.

How does PRP work?

In the office, your doctor draws your blood from a vein in your arm and separates and concentrates the platelets in the centrifuge device using centrifugal force.

After the centrifugation process, your doctor merges your concentrated platelets with the remaining blood and injects the concentrated platelets into the injured area.

What is amniotic therapy?

Amniotic therapy or stem cell therapy is a specific form of regenerative medicine.  

A woman’s placenta contains various basic healing components in the amniotic fluid surrounding the fetus. This fluid is typically discarded following a cesarean section. With amniotic therapy, the healing components are harvested and properly stored for later use to be injected into an injured area where they can boost healing and recovery.

Some components assist in the regeneration process and reduce inflammation. When injected into your body, the cells transform into the cells necessary to repair your injury.

Amniotic tissues contain a mix of cell adhesion molecules, collagen, and growth factors that are important in healing an injured area.

What are the benefits of regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine offers many benefits and typically provides long-term results. Most people experience a dramatic reduction in pain within weeks following treatment.

Most regenerative medicine treatments are quick and convenient, can be performed on your lunch break, and allow you to return to your daily activities right away.

PRP therapy is the go-to treatment for many famous celebrities and athletes. Your body doesn’t reject your own blood, making PRP therapy both safe and effective.
