What is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative Medicine is; at its core, a conservative therapy. We do not utilize drugs, surgery or foreign materials to treat your painful condition. We use your very own cells to naturally repair and regenerate the affected tissues to reverse the damage. Powerful cells in your bone marrow called Mesenchymal Stem Cells can change and grow into new muscle, tendon, ligament, bone and even cartilage when called upon by the body. Growth factors provided by the platelets in your blood further stimulate and enhance this process. Marrow is harvested from the bone at the back of your waist through a relatively gentle, low volume aspiration.
From a simple blood draw, we can concentrate the platelets in a centrifuge. The combined injectate is skillfully targeted to the area needing treatment using state-of-the-art imaging techniques. In a time when we are flooded with more drugs and supplements than ever offering to treat injury and pain, people are demanding organic remedies and more natural cures. We are extremely proud to add this fantastic therapy to the already comprehensive list of services provided.
