What is regenerative medicine? This fast growing, highly effective treatment option utilizes various stem cell treatments including, umbilical allografts, amniotic stem cells, mesenchymal stem cells and platelet rich plasma or PRP treatments to heal and restore your body to a healthy level. The very name indicates that it helps your body regenerate tissue, bone, discs, cartilage, and cells. It provides relief from injuries and chronic pain. Regenerative medicine is a natural solution that even helps combat the effects of aging.
Our team of doctors will design a customized regenerative medical treatment program just for you. A custom program is far more effective than a "one size fits all" treatment option. Our solutions are designed to help your body truly heal rather than simply mask your symptoms.
Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cell therapy is a form of regenerative medicine and offers exciting improvements for patients in pain, those with wounds that won’t heal or with damaged cartilage, muscle or ligaments. It also helps arthritic patients find relief from the swelling, pain and lack of mobility resulting from this condition. It will even help those that have had recent surgery heal more quickly and reduce scar tissue.
What are the Most Effective Stem Cells?
There are many sources for stem cells. However, the mesenchymal stem cells obtained from umbilical cords or amniotic fluid offer the most potent and effective healing power. Why are young stem cells more favorable than those in our bodies naturally? Our body's own stem cells age as we age and are therefore less effective year after year. The stem cells harvested from the umbilical cord or amniotic fluid the day of birth are much more effective. To illustrate this, simply think about how much more quickly children heal from injuries than do elder people. This is due to their young, healthy stem cells.
When introduced into an injured or damaged area, stem cells go to work to accelerate and enhance your natural healing process. They are capable of healing muscle tears, ligament or tendon damage, strengthen degenerating bones and cartilage and more. Stem cells are undifferentiated cells meaning that they transform into the exact cells your body needs to heal itself. They even have the ability to halt and reverse arthritis and improve ALS and certain heart conditions.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
The most active healing cells contained in your blood are called platelets. When your body signals that it is injured, platelets are attracted to the injured area. They then and go to work repairing that area. To focus this healing power intensively on your injury, we extract a small quantity of your blood. The next step is to process it and isolate the platelets in clear plasma. This platelet-rich plasma will then be returned to your injured area. PRP treatments of knees, shoulders, muscles, tendons and other parts of the body have proven remarkably effective.
What Results can I Expect from Regenerative Medicine
Regenerative medicine by its very name tells you that it regenerates. These procedures regenerate cells, tissue, bone, ligaments, tendons muscles, cartilage, and more. Stem cell treatments are found to help those with ALS, heart conditions, alopecia, peripheral neuropathy, skin rejuvenation, hair restoration, etc. Choosing regenerative medical treatment options and stem cell therapy helps your body tap into its youthful healing potential. You can expect hair restoration, younger looking skin and improved quality of life.
Additional Regenerative Medicine Treatment Options
O-Shots®: This life changing, revolutionary use of regenerative medicine utilizes platelet-rich plasma to improve vaginal tone and sexual response. By injecting PRP into anesthetized genital areas, regeneration of tissue in the area is triggered. These PRP injections increase blood flow to these sensitive and responsive tissues. Improved sensation during sexual activity is the result, along with a reduction of urinary incontinence and other symptoms.
P-Shots®: The P-shot, or Priapus Shot, offers similar benefits for men. In this case, the patient’s own platelets are injected into numbed areas of the penis. Growth factors that are abundant in platelet-rich plasma rejuvenate the tissues in the penis involved in creating erections and responding to stimuli. Resulting in more satisfying sexual experiences.
Medical science has moved beyond simply covering up a patient’s problems with steroids, painkillers and muscle-relaxing drugs and has embraced regenerative medicine and stem cell therapy as better solutions to heal pain and injuries.
