What you need to know about regenerative medicine
What is regenerative medicine?
Stem cells have been clinically and scientifically proven to effectively treat chronic and acute joint and knee pain. Stem cells are the body’s master cells. They are undifferentiated cells that have the ability to transform into a variety of different cells, replace dying cells, and regenerate damaged tissue. Stem cells are derived from your own body’s bone marrow or fat deposit (adipose).
An alternative method for regenerative medicine is through allograft tissues (from a purified amniotic source). These tissues have a high concentration of collagens, structural proteins and growth factors that support healing. This immune-privileged tissue can have some advantages over other regenerative therapies. Speak with our physician about which regenerative medicine technique would be right for you and your injury.
Regenerative Medicine For Knee And Joint Pain
The initial exam is performed with appropriate X-rays and an evaluation of areas of concern followed by appropriate diagnosis and treatment plan.
The Stem Cell product is carefully delivered at a certain temperature and the cells have been isolated with a specialized centrifuge-ready for injection.
The live cells are then carefully injected into the site where the damaged tissue exists and the healing and regeneration begins!

WHAT IS THE RECOVERY TIME?
Two advantages of a stem cell injection over surgery are:
- No need for a hospital stay
- No prolonged recovery
Most patients find themselves back in their daily routine the day after the procedure. Healing gradually happens over the course of 2-6 weeks and can continue for up to 12+ months.
