Regenerative medicine is a field of medicine that involves repairing or replacing body tissues that are lost or damaged due to age, disease, trauma, or congenital defects. At Modern Concepts, the medical team provides stem cell therapy to help heal and regenerate damaged tissues that cause joint pain and dysfunction. These stem cells are obtained from donated amniotic allografts and umbilical cord blood that have been processed and purified to use for stem cell injections.
Regenerative medicine involves your doctor injecting a precise dosage of therapeutic stem cells into your injured joint. These stem cells then go through a process called differentiation, in which they turn into the same type of cells present in the injured area. This means that damaged tissues in your cartilage, ligaments, and tendons, can be repaired or replaced by stem cells.
The three main approaches to regenerative medicine and stem cell therapy involve:
Rejuvenation involves using stem cells to encourage damaged tissues to heal. In some cases, chronic injuries or inflammation can make healing difficult. But introducing stem cells, along with other therapies, can help your body start to heal on its own again.
In cases where your existing tissues are too damaged to repair, stem cells can replace those damaged tissues through the process of differentiation.
With regeneration, stem cells are injected to restore normal tissue function, including pain-free movement and restored range of motion.
