Regenerative Medicine

The field of regenerative medicine holds great promise for orthopedic conditions. The widening scope of minimally invasive orthopedic treatments available for acute and chronic conditions is exciting. While surgeries – such as a total knee replacement and arthroscopy – can produce excellent outcomes, many patients can be successfully treated without surgery.

The world of regenerative medicine is a game-changer for athletes and those seeking pain relief for normal daily living. Technology and unique advancements, such as stem cell therapy and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, are moving the field of orthopedics into a new era.

The goal of regenerative medicine is to support, stimulate, and enhance the body’s natural healing capabilities, and to help repair defects that would not normally heal on their own. These treatments aim to foster the regeneration of healthy tissue at the site of injury. Regenerative medicine offers an unprecedented opportunity for developing new medical therapies for debilitating orthopedic conditions, such as arthritis.

The type of regenerative medicine that offers the best chance of success is autologous, which means that the person provides their own cells for their own therapy. Once the cells have been processed in a lab or a machine, they are re-injected into the person’s body, directly into the damaged area. This therapy should help stimulate the damaged cells to regenerate.

Regenerative medicine has shown particular success in promoting accelerated healing in the joints and spinal discs. These treatments can help patients in relieving their pain, restoring their function, and helping to avoid surgery.
