What is regenerative medicine?
Regenerative medicine is a new area of medical care that has great potential for health and healing. Though research is ongoing, the focus of regenerative medicine is to replace or repair damaged or diseased organs to restore health and function. By comparison, traditional medical care focuses on treatments that help you manage symptoms.
Regenerative medicine may have the potential to cure chronic health conditions such as type 1 diabetes and heart disease. Though considered an up and coming area of medicine, doctors have been using regenerative medicine for years in the form of bone marrow transplants to treat leukemia.
What are the types of regenerative medicine?
PRP is a blood product made from a sample of your blood that contains a high concentration of platelets. In addition to clotting wounds, platelets also contain unique proteins and growth factors that heal your wound.
When used for regenerative medicine, PRP supplies your diseased or damaged tissue with a high concentration of these essential healing properties to support and accelerate the repair and regenerative process.
