Regenerative Medicine Q & A

What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine encourages the body to create new cells to heal or replace damaged tissue. Regenerative medicine is an innovative field that is currently being studied and implemented across many medical disciplines.

The highly trained providers at Beeson Regenerative Health use regenerative medicine to promote healing of the joints and connective tissue. Regenerative medicine can alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, and enhance the results of other treatments.

How does regenerative medicine work?

The experts at Beeson Regenerative Health use injections to administer regenerative therapy to their patients. Depending on your condition and medical history, your provider may recommend stem cell therapy or platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy.

Stem cell therapy

Adult stem cells replicate indefinitely. Some stem cells produce a single type of tissue, but other kinds of stem cells can differentiate into multiple types of tissues, including cartilage, muscle, and bone.

Your provider may choose to harvest stem cells from your own body tissue. In some cases, donated stem cells may be the best option.

Platelet-rich plasma therapy

Platelet-rich plasma therapy involves drawing your blood and then processing it to separate your platelets, which contain essential proteins that can stimulate cell regeneration. When PRP is injected, it stimulates your existing tissues to create more cells, thus repairing damaged structures. Stem cell and PRP therapy can be used independently or combined for optimal tissue regrowth.

What conditions can regenerative medicine treat?

The dedicated providers at Beeson Regenerative Health use regenerative therapy in conjunction with a multidisciplinary treatment plan to address a variety of conditions. Some conditions regenerative medicine can treat include:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Torn or damaged muscles
  • Ligament and tendon injuries
  • Tendinitis
  • Bursitis
  • Tennis elbow
  • Sports injuries

Regenerative medicine can help relieve pain, increase your range of motion, and slow or halt joint deterioration. When regenerative medicine is used to treat osteoarthritis, it may help you avoid major surgery in the future.
