Regenerative medicine is an exciting and revolutionary field of medicine.
Regenerative medicine heals injuries by growing new healthy tissue with the potential to fully repair damaged tissues.
There is a high success rate in healing bone, muscle, joint, soft tissue, and nerve injuries with regenerative medicine.
Our therapies meet the needs of patients who still have pain after traditional treatments like physical therapy, rest, NSAIDs and pain management.
At MWMD, we use an amniotic allograft (stem cells, hyaluronic acid, growth factor, and cytokines) which has the following advantages.
Surgery is a very invasive procedure and you will take a long time to heal.
There are several risks associated with any invasive surgery:
Steroids are widely used to provide temporary relief from pain and inflammation. Steroids, however, have the following effects on your body:
Stem cells are cells that haven't decide what they want to be just yet. They work like a cell template that is able to evolve into anything based on the needs of the body. For example, stem cells enter an area healing such as a cut and come together to create new tissue to close the wound. One series of stem cells might become skin while another transform into muscle because that injury requires both to heal properly.
The results are different for each patient and each injury. regenerative medicine promote repair, so it won't help referred pain in the shoulder, for example. That is pain that comes from somewhere else; it is just felt in the joint. It works well to heal degenerated tissue like you might see with arthritis. The risks are minimal and the outcome is usually positive, especially when part of a comprehensive treatment plan that includes other services like physical therapy.
