What is Regenerative Medicine

Modern medicine as we know it today isn’t necessarily all that modern.

Case in point:  If you blow out your ACL, your doctor would most likely recommend surgery, physical therapy, and drugs for pain management. Arthritis?  Same.  A wound that won’t heal? Learn to live with it and take drugs for the pain.

 

More often than not, medicine today turns to surgery and drug therapy as a first line of treatment rather than as the last resort.

 

Well, regenerative medicine is changing all that. Instead of treating pain and injury with surgery, implants and drugs, regenerative medicine harnesses your body’s own ability to heal and boosts it in a very powerful and effective way.

The National Institute of Health defines Regenerative Medicine as a rapidly developing field that has the potential to transform the treatment of human disease and injury through innovative new therapies that offer faster and more complete recovery.  Moreover, Regenerative Medicine has significantly fewer side effects and risks of complication than surgery or drug therapies.

Regenerative medicine seeks to cure injury, pain, and disease instead of simply treating and managing it. Even people who may have been considered incurable or untreatable in the past have the ability to flourish after undergoing regenerative medicine protocols.

FAQs

What are Adult Stem Cells?

Adult stem cells are found throughout your body, although we have found them to be of the highest quality and most plentiful in the adipose (fat) tissue of the body. Because adult stem cells have the ability to multiply and morph into other types of cells throughout your body, they help your body to repair itself naturally. We use adult stem cells to maintain and repair tissue, neutralize inflammation, and accelerate healing.

Is stem cell therapy a safe procedure?

Absolutely. This is especially true when you consider the many risks associated with surgery.  One of the great things about stem cell therapy is that not only is it minimally invasive, but because we use stem cells from your own adipose (fat) tissue, there is no risk of rejection or of contracting an infectious disease from a donor patients.

When will I start seeing results?

Depending on the procedure, most patients begin to notice improvement in as little as two to 12 weeks.

Are there different kinds of stem cells?

Yes. There are basically two types of stem cells: Embryonic and Adult. Embryonic stem cells (also called unlimited stem cells) have the potential to become any type of human cell. Adult stem cells (also called limited stem cells), however, cannot be replicated outside the host body so must be transplanted or frozen immediately. There are two primary sources for adult stem cells: bone marrow or adipose tissue.

Where does 100% Pure Amniotic Fluid come from?

Fluid is collected from mothers who have volunteered for the procedure and who are scheduled to have a Caesarian section. Once extracted, the fluid is frozen and stored until it is ready for use. The fluid is then injected into an injured joint, bone, tendon, ligament, nerve or muscle.

Do the 100% Pure Amniotic Fluid injections hurt?

People experience pain differently, but typically there is minimal pain associated with the injections, and can be well-managed.

How many 100% Pure Amniotic Fluid injections will I need?

Depending on the injury and the extent of the injury, the average patient requires one to two treatments. It is rare for a patient to require more than two treatments.

What types of doctors offer regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine doctors come from several different specialty areas, including sports medicine, orthopedic surgery, and pain management.
