Regenerative medicine deals with restoring the body's normal function by replacing, engineering, or re-engineering human cells, tissues or organs. As a recognized authority in regenerative medicine, our health care clinic proudly offers two of the most advanced treatments available today; Cell Therapy and Platelet-Rich Plasma.
These cutting-edge treatments can help regenerate cartilage, tissue, bone, and cells, offering long-term relief from knee pain, joint pain, plantar fasciitis, osteoarthritis, as well as tendon and ligament damage.
Regenerative medicine is completely safe, minimally invasive, and requires little to no downtime with zero adverse reactions. If you suffer from chronic pain or have a degenerative condition and have tried a variety of other treatments with no results, call us at (724) 452-4167 to schedule a consultation to find out if you might be a candidate.
Regenerative medicine refers to an interdisciplinary approach to restoring or repairing damaged/diseased tissues, cells, and organs in your body. Dr. Mark Fleming of New Health Solutions in Zelienople, PA can help you understand how this cutting-edge, advanced approach to medicine helps to encourage and stimulate your natural healing process that promotes tissue regeneration.
Regenerative Medicine Potential Applications
Regenerative medicine has a variety of potential applications, and with new advancements, the list keeps expanding year after year.
These techniques are being applied and explored for the treatment of joint or cartilage damage/defects or other degenerative conditions (i.e., osteoarthritis).
Strategies like stem cell therapy are used to help promote and improve cardiac function and repair related tissue.
Regenerative medicine is also being scientifically studied for neurological conditions like –
- Spinal cord injuries
- Parkinson's disease
- Alzheimer's disease
The field of regenerative medicine is also related to the field of organ transplantation to help in overcoming what is often a limited organ supply.
Regenerative Medicine Treatment Options
Encouraging your body's healing processes can be accomplished in a number of ways. Dr. Fleming offers these regenerative medicine treatments –
Human Cellular Tissue
Human cellular tissue refers to a technique in which tissue/cells – derived from human sources are used noninvasively to a) promote the repair/healing of cells/tissues and b) with the ultimate goal of restoring normal function to your body. The cells used can be sourced from –
- The patient's own body – a.k.a. autologous.
- A generated laboratory process – a.k.a. stem cell lines
Platelet Rich Plasma
Platelets refer to small structures (cell-like) in your blood that contain bioactive substances (i.e., cytokines, growth factors, and more) that are critical in stimulating the repair of tissue and the healing of wounds.
Platelet-rich refers to a type of regenerative medicine that introduces a concentrated solution of platelets that is sourced from a person's blood. The PRP process involves drawing a small sample of blood to be processed (typically through a centrifuge) so that the platelet-rich part of the blood is separated from other components based on layer density. The concentrated platelets are then used in the treatment process.
Treatments using platelet-rich plasma have been shown to be effective in the treatment of musculoskeletal injuries, wounds, and more.
