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.
The team at Scott Wagner Integrated Medicine is expanding services to include regenerative medicine using mesenchymal stem cells and platelet-rich plasma (PRP).
Mesenchymal stem cells are self-renewing cells that can transform into specialized cells such as cartilage, bone, and fat. Your body produces mesenchymal stem cells to repair and regenerate tissue. However, poor blood circulation may prevent your body’s mesenchymal stem cells from reaching the body parts that need them.
With regenerative medicine at Scott Wagner Integrated Medicine, the team uses mesenchymal stem cells harvested from pre-screened, pre-approved donor cord tissue obtained after the birth of a live full-term healthy baby. Research shows that mesenchymal stem cells may help repair diseased or damaged tissue.
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.
At Scott Wagner Integrated Medicine, medical doctors conduct comprehensive assessments to determine the best treatment for your condition. You may benefit from regenerative medicine to alleviate your pain condition, support your physical rehabilitation program, or aid in the healing process after a surgical procedure.
