What is Regenerative Medicine?

We strive to stay current with effective patient treatments, including Regenerative Medicine.  We continually update our techniques so patients can benefit from comprehensive treatment with no downtime or surgery.

Regenerative medicine is a controlled approach to enhance the body’s ability to regenerate and repair itself without the use of drugs and surgery. Regenerative Medicine continues to be a proven application in reducing pain and improving quality of life. With a tailored protocol, the underlying issue can be targeted to promote healing with lasting results.

As we age, this body’s ability to heal itself decreases. Because of this, it is often necessary to make a “deposit” of specific cells to supply the body with the necessary materials necessary for regeneration and healing.

What causes Pain, Inflammation and Osteoarthritis?

  1. Age. As we age we lose movement in our joints resulting in worn cartilage.
    Cartilage acts as a pillow for our joints, when the pillow loses volume the lasting
    result is pain.
  2. Injury. Previous trauma can cause joints to degenerate.
  3. Heredity. Certain genes have been linked to Osteoarthritis.
  4. Weight. Extra weight puts extra pressure on joints, causing them to wear and degenerate faster.
  5. Overuse. Repetitive movements can cause stress on joints.
  6. Sedentary Lifestyle.  Lack of movement accelerates joint degeneration.

Joint injections with specific healing cells can differentiate to create new, specialized, healthy cells that the body needs to grow, heal, and repair. In other words, the injections can stimulate new tissue growth within the targeted joint. Changes may be experienced immediately or may take several months for full results, with gradual improvement over time.

Frequently Asked Questions

I have personally experienced chronic joint pain. For many years I suffered with a torn rotator cuff and arthritic knee. In my quest to avoid drugs and surgery, I discovered regenerative medicine to treat the cause of my pain. Did it help?

Yes, so much so that I chose to offer this service to patients. Do I have regrets? Yes, I didn't do it sooner.

There are no guarantees of full recovery with any treatment, especially drugs and surgery which often only mask the problem. Applying regenerative medicine gives you the best chance to actually correct the cause of your problem, whether it’s worn cartilage, muscle tears, or an arthritic joint.

Imaging is required to determine if Regenerative Medicine is a suitable option for your condition. X-rays and MRI’s less than one year old are accepted. If you do not have an image, the first step is to obtain an x-ray. Depending on the severity of the condition, an MRI may be needed as well.

If we determine you are an ideal candidate, recommendations will be made based on your medical history, age, and severity of the condition. We encourage patients to act sooner rather than later. Degenerative diseases, such as Osteoarthritis, do just that…degenerate. As time progresses, condition worsen. The sooner a patient acts, the better the outcome.

Will you need more than one injection? That answer is completely dependent upon the severity of your diagnosis and your lifestyle. Patients with mild degenerative changes and good lifestyle habits may only need treatment once. While others may need multiple treatments.

What if we can’t help you? We will tell you. There is no risk to exploring this option which is drug-free and surgery-free. It is important to us that your healing be successful, and as such we are selective regarding the patients and joints we treat.

An arthritic joint over a patient’s lifetime costs an average of $129,600 in medical bills. The average knee replacement is $57,000. For patients with insurance, the average deductible is $4,300 for orthopedic surgery. This leaves an average cost of $12,000 to $15,000 for the patient’s out of pocket costs. Many times, this large medical expense does not equal results.

Regenerative medicine is a small fraction compared to the medical cost of treating an arthritic joint.
