Regenerative medicine uses naturally occurring serum containing mesenchymal cells, hyaluronic acid, & cytokines. These powerful growth factors facilitate new cellular growth in the tissue in which they are injected. This not only reduces the damaging effects of chronic pain and inflammation, but increases the cartilage in the joint, thereby enabling smooth, comfortable joint movement. These cells can also be used for amazing results with stem cell (PRP) facials and hair rejuvination.

Regenerative Medicine Q & A

What is Regenerative Medicine?

Regenerative medicine uses naturally occurring serum containing mesenchymal cells, hyaluronic acid, & cytokines. These powerful growth factors facilitate new cellular growth in the tissue in which they are injected. This not only reduces the damaging effects of chronic pain and inflammation, but increases the cartilage in the joint, thereby enabling smooth, comfortable joint movement. These cells can also be used for amazing results with stem cell (PRP) facials and hair rejuvination.

What issues can be helped with Regenerative Medicine?

The mesenchymal stem cells and or PRP, along with other growth factors, we use can treat a wide range of medical problems. Because they have both anti-inflammatory and regenerative properties, they can reduce pain and accelerate healing in the following areas:

  • Elbows and wrists, including repetitive motion injuries
  • Shoulders, including muscle tears and nerve inflammation
  • Hips, including soft tissue injuries
  • Knees and ankles, including plantar fasciitis
  • Degenerative disease of the spine
  • Skin Wrinkles, crows feet, laugh lines and sagging skin
  • Hair restoration

How long does it take to see results?

The majority of our patients begin to see results in the first 24 hours due to the natural anti-inflammatory nature of the mesenchymal cells and naturally occurring factors present in each injection. Joints and tissues that have more degeneration may take longer.

How many treatments will I need?

With the majority of our cases, if we find that you are a good candidate to receive stem cells or PRP therapy, each area should only take one procedure. But every case is different and requires extensive evaluation to determine what is best for each patient.

Is the treatment painful?

Just like any injection there is a chance of discomfort during the procedure. At our clinic we work to minimize any pain by using a freeze spray to numb the area. With this addition, the bulk of our patients experience a pain free procedure.

Optimal Joint Health Without Surgery

A New Treatment Solution

Unlike any other tissue in your body, amniotic tissue, which included the umbilical cord and amniotic membrane, has unique regenerative properties to promote healing without evidence of scarring or damage. These healing properties come from several innate biological factors, found in highest concentrations in the umbilical cord that control inflammation and promote tissue growth and regenerative healing.

Joint Pain Relief

The treatment works both to control the pain from inflammation and help support the regenerative healing process. Patients report pain relief in a few days, and an improvement in function over several weeks.

Is it Safe?

Yes! The tissue is obtained from consenting mothers, who donate their birth tissue from live full term births across the US. It is then Screened, handled and processed based upon requirements established by the FDA and American Association of Tissue Banks.

To date, more then 250,000 procedures have been performed with this technology and no reports of tissue rejection or disease transmission.

Osteoarthritis Knee Study

A randomized controlled single-blind demonstrated a superiority of amniotic suspension Allograft injection over Hyaluronic acid and saline for modification of knee osteoarthritis.

Placental-derived tissues are a known source of anti-inflammatory and immune modulating factors. Published pilot data on amniotic suspension Allograft (ASA) for the treatment of Osteoarthritis (OA) demonstrated safety and trends for improved pain and function.

When traditional Medical interventions fail Amniotic injections may change your life. Once procedure may reduce pain, inflammation and promote healing associated with:

  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Joint tendinosis
  • Joint tendinitis
  • Tennis/Golfers Elbow
  • Ligament Damage
  • Knee osteoarthritis
