What is regenerative medicine? This fast-growing, highly effective treatment option utilizes various treatments that may include cellular tissue and growth factors, including umbilical allografts, amniotic fluid, and platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, treatments to heal and restore your body to a healthy level. The very name indicates that regenerative medicine therapies help your body regenerate tissue, bone, discs, cartilage, and cells. This treatment option 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 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.
What is Regenerative Therapy?
Regenerative therapy helps your body restore itself to a healthy state naturally. Patients in pain, those with wounds that won’t heal or with damaged cartilage, muscle, or ligaments may return to normal life in a short time. Regenerative therapy may also help 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 Conditions Can be Treated with Regenerative Medicine Therapies?
What are the Most Effective Regenerative Cells?
There are many sources for regenerative cells. However, we feel that the cellular tissue obtained from umbilical cords offer the most potent and effective healing power. Why are young cells more favorable than those in our bodies naturally? Our body's own cells age as we age and are therefore less effective year after year. The cell tissue harvested from the umbilical cord, the day of birth, shows an extremely high replication rate. To illustrate this, simply think about how much more quickly children heal from injuries than older people.
When introduced into an injured or damaged area, cells go to work to accelerate and enhance your natural healing process. They are reported to help your body heal muscle tears, ligament or tendon damage, strengthen degenerating bones, and cartilage and more. Regenerative cells are undifferentiated cells meaning that they transform into the exact cells your body needs to heal itself. They even have the ability to help with the inflammation and pain that accompanies arthritis and other 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 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
Most often the fastest relief after a regenerative medicine treatment comes from the anti-inflammatory properties of the injection. The longer-term results are the result of your body healing itself and restoring the damaged tissue. These procedures regenerate cells, tissue, bone, ligaments, tendons, muscles, cartilage, and more. Regenerative therapy treatments are found to help those with heart conditions, alopecia, peripheral neuropathy, skin rejuvenation, hair restoration, etc. Choosing regenerative medical treatment options and regenerative therapy helps your body tap into its youthful healing potential. You can expect hair restoration, younger-looking skin, and improved quality of life.
Regenerative Medicine Treatment Options for Sexual Enhancement
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 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.
