Regenerative medicine is poised to revolutionize the way we treat patients who require orthopedic treatments without the risks and complications of traditional drugs and surgical procedures.
Patients who have sustained an orthopedic injury, are suffering from a chronic condition, or are experiencing the pains of deteriorating joints can now opt for regenerative medicine treatment techniques instead of going for major surgeries such as joint and artificial tissue replacement or various reconstruction surgeries.
When combined with essential surgical procedures, regenerative medicine techniques help enhance not just the end result, but also aids in faster recovery, pain management, reduced scarring, and prevention of complications.
Regenerative medicine makes use of the patient’s own regenerative cells, unlocking the body’s natural healing power by utilizing methods that tap into the body’s natural ability to heal, regenerate, and restore itself. With the advent of regenerative medicine, we can improve therapeutic efficacy more naturally while minimizing risks.
In the bone marrow, there are a diverse group of progenitor cells that promote healing in our body. It also contains medicinal signaling cells (MSCs) and growth factors necessary for tissue repair as well as plasma proteins which help with homeostasis throughout different parts of your system.
BMAC can be extracted using only minimally invasive techniques like aspiration or drilling into small joints where it will then be injected into diseased regions or damaged areas; this speeds up recovery time.
The body’s inherent “biological intelligence” is used in this cellular therapy, which aims to improve the local biochemical environment while also having beneficial effects that can last for years after treatment.
Since BMAC is derived from components naturally produced by the body, it is very safe, well tolerated, and free of any significant side effects.This is readily performed under local anesthetic.
Platelets are the part of the blood which helps clot wounds. Extracted from the patient’s own blood, Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP), are concentrated platelets with higher growth factor content. This means it causes cells to divide more rapidly and speeds up the healing process.
PRP promotes collagen and bone formation, which helps with tissue regeneration. Aside from speeding up the healing process, it also reduces scarring and pain, as well as the risk of re-injury.
These are all great reasons to use PRP to treat tendon injuries and other musculoskeletal injuries.
Dextrose Injection Therapy is a form of Prolotherapy that consists of injecting a glucose solution directly into an injured or irritated joint to stimulate collagen formation necessary for tissue healing. Once inside, the body treats this solution as a foreign invader and begins to send white blood cells to defend itself from this irritant. In turn, these white blood cells strengthen soft tissue, tendons, ligaments, collagen, and cartilage.
Perineural Injection Treatment (PIT) is an advanced injection therapy technique which has been used in regenerative medicine clinical practice for over six decades. Combined with his expertise, Dextrose Injection Therapy has been found to be very safe and highly successful, with a favorable side effect profile.
Regenerative Injection Therapy is used to treat injured tissue to help regenerate healthy cells. Injections can be made up of a variety of agents, including platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and stem cells. Depending on the patient’s condition, an optimal combination of dextrose, PRP and/or BMAC can be determined.
The treatment uses precise ultrasound or fluoroscopic imaging of the injured area to determine exactly where and how much medicine or cells are needed to be administered. Patients typically receive several rounds of painless injections applied directly to the injured area.
Regenerative injection therapy can address a wide range of orthopedic conditions including knee arthritis, rotator cuff injuries, tennis elbow, runner’s knee, groin pain, and low back pain. This treatment can also be used to speed up recovery time from sports injuries or surgeries.
