What is Regenerative Medicine?

Regenerative medicine, also known as cellular therapy, leverages your natural healing process to rebuild damaged tissues. In regenerative medicine procedures, your pain management doctor uses cells from your body to replace, regenerate, repair or reboot injured or aged tissues, organs or joints. Regenerative medicine is the most advanced form of treatment you can get.

The process may rely on growth factors from your own blood, exogenous broth factors or bone marrow aspirate to promote the natural healing process. To accomplish this, your doctor takes bone marrow or other healthy tissues from one part of your body and delivers it into the diseased, degenerated or injured part. The procedure rebuilds damaged tissue, relieves pain and heals injuries without use of medication or surgery.

Dr. Ilana Etelzon, a pain management specialist in NYC, practices non-operative or minimally invasive treatment, including regenerative therapies. She is board certified in Physical Medicine and Rehab/Interventional Pain Management. She works closely with you to develop an individualized treatment plan based on your diagnosis.

What Are Examples of Regenerative Medicine Procedures?

Regenerative medicine is a relatively new field, but ongoing research has discovered new ways to unlock the potential of the treatment method. The most common regenerative medicine procedures include:

  • Cell therapy treatment. This is a popular regenerative therapy in which your doctor harvests your cells, from your fat, blood or bone marrow. After purification and concentration, the cells are injected into an injured or diseased part of your body.
  • Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections. For this regenerative therapy, Dr. Etelzon creates platelet-rich plasma from your blood. Then she injects the concentrated mixture into the injured cartilage, tendon or whatever needs to heal.
  • This is a type of regenerative therapy to treat joint and muscle pain. Your doctor injects a saline solution into the injured or degenerated joint or muscle to cause irritation. The ensuing reaction forces your immune system to react to heal the injured joint or muscle.
  • Viscous Supplementation. Also referred to as viscosupplementation, this procedure introduces a gel-like component called hyaluronic acid into a joint to serve as a lubricant when osteoarthritis has worn away the pads between your bones. This is a common procedure for treating knee pain.
  • Via Disc NP Allograft

At her NYC pain management practice, Dr. Etelzon uses the most suitable regenerative procedures for the best results. All these treatments are non-operative and minimally invasive.

What Conditions Does Regenerative Medicine Treat?

Doctors use regenerative medicine for a broad range of pain-causing conditions. More uses keep emerging with new research. Diseases and injuries that benefit from regenerative medicine procedures include:

  • Rotator cuff tears. If you’ve damaged the tendons and ligaments supporting your arm at the shoulder joint, your doctor may recommend regenerative therapy.
  • Knee conditions. Your knee is the largest and most complex joint in your body. Dr. Etelzon uses regenerative medicine procedures to treat painful conditions in your knee, such as knee osteoarthritis, ACL or PCL partial tears and meniscal injuries, as an alternative to knee injections. <Link to Knee Injections>
  • Spinal conditions. Most spinal conditions cause debilitating pain. Your pain management specialist may recommend regenerative therapies for such conditions as arthritis of the spine and sacroiliac joint.
  • Other joint problems. Regenerative medicine works for painful conditions in the hips, wrists, elbows and ankles.

After a diagnosis, your NYC pain management doctor discusses the underlying condition and the best treatment approach. Dr. Ilana Etelzon uses a unique approach by combining many of these regenerative procedures to form a more potent result for your condition.

  • Dear Doctor Etelzon, Thank you again. I am starting to feel more like myself again...I couldn't say the problem is totally gone, but a big weight has been lifted...Today...I decided to go and do my nails which I did not do for a long time after the incident. I also asked my daughter if we could go to the park. These are things I normally enjoy but forgot about them for a few months now.
