Cutting-edge regenerative medicine could be your non-invasive alternative to surgery for all-natural pain relief from injuries and chronic pain conditions. Regenerative medicine is a non-surgical, multi-disciplinary approach to helping you live your life to the fullest.
Serving clients in Pinellas Park and surrounding areas, our doctors offer regenerative medicine treatments like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and injections containing stem cells and growth factors to address the root cause of a range of medical conditions.
What is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative medicine therapy involves using regenerative cellular tissue to repair damaged or diseased cells or tissues. Because this area of medicine focuses on tissue regeneration, regenerative therapy may be used for the treatment of:
- Knee pain
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Shoulder pain
- Elbow pain
- Joint pain
- Hip pain
- And more!
The following injuries and musculoskeletal conditionscan also respond well to regenerative treatments:
- Damaged or degraded cartilage
- Torn ligaments
- Neuropathy (e.g., numbness in hands and feet)
- Plantar fasciitis
- Disc problems, including a bulging disc, herniated disc, torn disc, slipped disc, or ruptured disc
- Bone issues like osteoporosis and osteoarthritis
Regenerative medicine focuses on offering patients the benefits of stem cells, platelets, and other growth factors and proteins present in the human body and used in its healing processes.
Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cells are your body's built-in tools to repair damaged cells and counteract degeneration. Stem cell therapy can be a potentially painful procedure, especially when it involves collecting cells from your bone marrow by drilling through your hip or femur.
With this therapy, you are using your own cells, which have aged and may not work as well as younger cells. Another form of stem cell therapy uses cells extracted from your adipose tissue or fat cells. The drawback with this treatment is that your fat cells contain toxins, which may increase risks of complications.
Our doctor uses Wharton's jelly-derived treatments containing mesenchymal stem cells and other growth factors taken from donated umbilical cords, which are abundant in these healthy, young, vibrant cells as well as useful proteins, peptides, collagens, and more. Once the site of your pain receives the injection, stem cells and other components soothe inflammation and pain and begin repairing or replacing injured cells.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy harnesses healing agents and blood platelets to kick start your body’s natural healing and repair processes. PRP stimulates healing in damaged tendons and ligaments and is a viable option for the treatment of arthritis and fibromyalgia. The simple in-house procedure starts with taking a blood sample and then concentrating most of the platelets in a smaller volume of plasma. PRP is injected into damaged tissue to boost healing immediately.
