Regenerative Medicine Q & A

What is regenerative medicine?

At the heart of regenerative medicine is the process of prompting the human body to regenerate cells. This allows you to build up or repair damaged organs or other tissues, essentially healing your body from within.

There are three main focuses within regenerative medicine. 

Artificial organs and medical devices

Researchers in this area of regenerative medicine are excited about the opportunity to use your own tissues and cells to generate new body parts. Because the new tissue is created by your own body, there is no risk of rejection. 

Biomaterials and tissue engineering

This area of focus uses your own cells to create new tissue that can repair damaged organs and other tissue types. Researchers hope that advancements in tissue engineering can eventually reduce the demand for organ transplants. 

Cellular therapies

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are multipotent stem cells that can be directed to develop into numerous tissue types. This means they can restore or replace damaged cartilage, muscle cells, nerve cells, and more.

The team at ReGenesis Medical Center is passionate about the role regenerative medicine can play in enhancing your overall health and wellness.

Why choose regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine is a great option for men and women who want to address specific health concerns in a way that honors and protects the body’s innate ability to regenerate. While many center their treatment plans on regenerative techniques, it’s possible to incorporate regenerative medicine into a more traditional treatment plan.

Far too many men and women rely on pharmaceutical interventions to address pain and chronic health issues. While there are certainly examples of when drug therapy is the best course of action, this approach isn’t without risk. Some medications carry a high risk of addiction, and others have a long list of potential side effects.

Surgery can help relieve pain, but there are also many potential problems with relying on surgery to repair all types of tissue damage. The risk of complications is high, and the time it takes to recover from even minimally-invasive surgical procedures can be challenging.

Regenerative medicine offers a path to renewed health and reduced pain, without relying on drug therapy or surgery.   

How do I know which regenerative medicine treatment is right for me?

The process begins with a thorough diagnostic work-up. Your practitioner works with you to understand the source of your pain and devise the best possible treatment plan.

What works for one person might not work for another, so your treatment plan may be different from others who are struggling with similar complaints. During your consultation, your practitioner discusses all available treatment options, empowering you to make an informed decision about your care.
