Regenerative Medicine therapies are performed as outpatient procedures. They involve an injection of concentrated growth factors or stem cells to regenerate and heal tissues in degenerative spinal discs, joints, muscles, tendons or ligaments.
These therapies can be used to treat acute or chronic pain conditions related to degenerative disease. Regenerative therapies include obtaining concentrated platelets, growth factors or adult stem cells to accelerate the healing process.

Osteoarthritis is the most common cause of chronic joint pain. Osteoarthritis involves the entire joint, including the nearby muscles, underlying bone, ligaments, & connective tissue. In osteoarthritis, the supportive tissue called cartilage degenerates, leading to inflammation and pain. Platelet rich plasma and stem cells contain a concentrated source of anti inflammatory proteins that aid the healing process.
This type of arthritis is common in shoulders, hips, knees, hands, and feet. Patients will often complain of joint stiffness, throbbing, and swelling. There is no cure for osteoarthritis, but regenerative medicine therapies such as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and bone marrow derived stem cell therapy are a new generation of treatments that have been proven to be safe, effective, and have lasting results.
Stem cell treatments are unique because they help the body jump start the healing process. Our practice uses a sterile, closed surgical technique to obtain the stem cells.
The bone marrow is a rich source of adult stem cells. Bone marrow aspiration is a quick and simple outpatient procedure to derive regenerative mesenchymal cells and growth factors to heal and restore injured tissues.
When your body is injured, its first natural response is to flood the area with growth factors that promote healing. These growth factors are released by platelets. They work to stimulate the healing process. Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy optimizes the body’s healing process by placing a high concentration of platelets directly into the injured area.
To harvest PRP, a small sample of your blood is drawn into a specialized collecting system. This blood is centrifuged at high speeds to isolate the growth factors and platelets. Because your own blood is used, there is no risk of a transmissible infection, and a low risk of allergic reaction.
