Regenerative medicine is a cell-based therapy using advanced scientific techniques in the treatment of degenerative disease, orthopedic injuries, and joint conditions.
The goal of regenerative medicine is finding equilibrium between repair and breakdown in the body.
The body has constant regenerative processes, based on the constant turnover of cells in all tissues of the body. Osteoarthritis, tendinopathies, and ligamentous tears that do not heal are examples of when the breakdown outweighs the repair.
Regenerative medicine shifts the body back towards repair finding a balance between repair and breakdown.
It does this by stimulating the body’s natural immune response to promote healing and repair by encouraging growth factors, fibroblast, immune cells, stem cells, and collagen-building precursors to the injured area.
The following are some of the treatment methods I use with my patients:
