WHAT IS REGENERATIVE MEDICINE?

Regenerative Medicine involves the application of naturally derived growth factors, stem cells and/or stem cell based products to arthritic or injured joints in order to promote natural healing and reverse tissue damage. Treatment with regenerative medicine can create new living tissue in the body that has been damaged from disease, degeneration, or injury.

WHAT CONDITIONS CAN REGENERATIVE MEDICINE THERAPY HELP?

We have helped thousands of patients get back in the game and live a pain-free life. Some of the common conditions we treat are:

  • Knee Pain (Tendonitis, Knee Deterioration, Bone-on-Bone Arthritis, Osteoarthritis)
  • Hip Pain (Bursitis, Labral Tear, Dislocated Hip, Hip Arthritis)
  • Ankle & Foot Pain (Arthritis, Peroneal Tendon Tear or Split, Ligament Sprain or Tear, Plantar Fasciitis, Bunions, Achilles Tendonitis / Runner’s Injury)
  • Shoulder Pain (Tendonitis, Rotator Cuff Tendonitis (Subacromial Bursitis), Rotator Cuff Tear, Glenoid Labral Tear, Sprains, Bursitis, Arthritis)
  • Wrist & Hand Pain (Hand Arthritis, Basal Joint Arthritis, Instability, TFCC Tear, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Trigger Finger, Tendonitis, Wrist Sprains, Finger Fractures, Osteoarthritis, Torn Tendons / Ligaments / Muscles)
  • Elbow Pain (Sprains, Strains, Fractures, Disclosures, Bursitis, Arthritis)
  • Peripheral Vascular Disease
IS REGENERATIVE MEDICINE SAFE?

Yes, regenerative medicine is absolutely safe! Our regenerative medicine is the safest and most effective non-invasive therapy option to date. In fact, over 10,000 injections have been administered without any adverse side effects reported by our patients.

HOW IS IT COLLECTED?

There are three common ways to collect the ingredients of regenerative medicine: fat tissue, bone marrow, and placental tissue. We collect our regenerative medicine by amniotic fluid, or bone marrow, from carefully screened placental tissue.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO HEAL?

As far as when you can expect to feel symptoms decrease, in 50% of the cases it can be a matter of a couple weeks. 80% of patients that we treat feel a difference by the sixth week follow up visit. However, it takes 8 to 14 weeks for the treatment’s regenerative effects to fully set in.

HOW MUCH DOWNTIME WILL I NEED AFTER THE TREATMENT?

You are not required to be immobile after treatment. It is actually encouraged to keep the joints moving within reason so that the regenerative factors are able to settle in. The only condition is that you do not participate in high intensity activities such as running, downhill skiing, tennis, etc. for the first 4 to 6 weeks. Reasonable movement such as walking being on your feet is okay.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?

Every patient is different and may require a different amount of therapy sessions. Typically, the majority of people only need one treatment.

HOW SUCCESSFUL ARE RESULTS FROM REGENERATIVE MEDICINE?

Our success rate is at about 95%. Successful therapy from regenerative medicine depends on the extent of damage to the injured area, what type of disease is being improved, and the location of the injured area. Typically, patients respond positively to regenerative medicine therapy and even receive pain relief with one session.

MY DOCTOR SAID THAT I AM "BONE ON BONE". WILL THIS STILL WORK?

The majority of people that we treat have been labeled bone on bone. This is a term that is thrown around loosely by doctors and orthopedists that do not specialize in Regenerative Medicine, and can only provide surgery as a solution. We've treated many severe cases successfully. Our doctors who specialize in Regenerative Medicine are your best resource to determine your probability for a successful treatment.
