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.
