Regenerative Medicine & Cellular Therapy

Regenerative medicine involves all-natural, alternative therapies that treat acute and chronic pain. These therapies can often replace the need for pain medications, steroid injections, or surgery. Our providers also use regenerative medicine and cellular therapy for certain longevity and wellness techniques.

We offer the most comprehensive range of regenerative medicine and cellular therapies in our area, including:

Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP Therapy)

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) contains a higher concentration of platelets, which contain special proteins called growth factors that promote healing naturally. By using the body’s own cells to stimulate regrowth and rejuvenation in damaged tissue, PRP therapy offers natural pain relief for a wide variety of conditions and injuries, including:

One of the greatest benefits of PRP therapy is that it can act as a natural (and largely pain-free) alternative to surgical procedures. PRP injections are minimally invasive and often allow patients to avoid the risks, discomfort, and recovery times associated with surgery.

Our providers also use PRP therapy for cosmetic enhancements, including skin and facial rejuvenation, anti-aging services, and restoring hair loss.

Prolotherapy

Prolotherapy strengthens weakened or injured tissues by stimulating your body to send healing cells to the affected area. The procedure involves injecting a sterile solution into the connective tissues. When those cells arrive at the injured area, they cause a localized inflammatory reaction. This reaction stimulates healing activity over time that allows the body to form new collagen, creating stronger tissues. Prolotherapy usually involves a series of injections (typically 2-8) to achieve optimal improvement, and can be used to treat the following conditions:

  • Low back pain
  • Arthritis and osteoarthritis
  • Tendonitis
  • Sports-related injuries
  • Overuse injuries

Amniotic Tissue Allograft Injections

Amniotic fluid injections can treat numerous orthopedic conditions, and are particularly suited to disc herniations and spinal stenosis. The injections can allow patients an alternative to invasive surgeries for chronic joint, muscle or bone pain. Like all of our regenerative medicine and cellular therapy techniques, amniotic tissue allograft injections are designed to enhance your body’s own ability to heal.

Amniotic fluid is rich in nutrients, with hundreds of growth factors, cytokines and proteins that are beneficial in helping regenerate damaged tissues. Amniotic fluids are obtained during full-term caesarean births, volunteered by pre-screened, healthy donors who have been thoroughly tested for disease. Allogenic amniotic fluid injections can help patients with the following conditions return to full function and normal activities of daily living without surgery:

  • Chronic disc herniation
  • Spinal nerve conditions and degeneration

Bone Marrow Aspiration and Injections

Bone marrow is a rich source of mesenchymal stem cells, and has the added benefit of using the patient’s own stem cells to treat degenerative conditions. Stem cell treatment helps healing by promoting your body’s immune system to aid in healing itself. The treatment is extremely anti-inflammatory, has many positive effects in helping your body treat degenerative, age related, injury, autoimmune conditions.

With this technique, mesenchymal stem cells are placed into a specific joint or disc to help promote healing and tissue regeneration. It is used to treat the following conditions:

  • Arthritis and osteoarthritis
  • Degenerated or herniated discs
  • Orthopedic and other spine injuries, such as spinal stenosis
  • Tendonitis and partial tendon tears
