Patients that suffer from soft tissue injuries or have degenerative joint conditions such asosteoarthritis can benefit from regenerative medicine injections. During the procedure, fluid containing growth factors, cytokines, scaffolding proteins, hyaluronic acid and/or collagen is flash thawed and injected into the damaged or degenerated tissue or joint using sterile techniques and under ultrasound guidance. After the cells and tissue are injected into the tissue or joint it activates the body’s innate immune response to begin the healing process.
The biggest benefit of using Regenerative Medicine to treat damaged joints is that the procedure consists of a single injection and is noninvasive. When compared to traditional surgery the recovery time is infinitely shorter. Patients also find they recover more quickly when they follow our programs. Not only is the damaged joint repaired, but the growth factors and cytokines promote new tissue growth to make the joint stronger. Injections are quick, most often as short as 15 minutes, and nearly 85% of patients only require one injection to reduce pain and improve range of motion in the joint.
