Regenerative medicine is an exciting and relatively new branch of medicine that focuses on replacing – or regenerating – damaged tissues instead of treating the symptoms that result from tissue damage. In many cases, regenerative medicine can help patients delay or even avoid the need for orthopedic surgery.
There are several treatments that fall under the regenerative medicine umbrella, but two of the most notable include:
- Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy – This treatment uses the patient’s own blood cells to stimulate the body’s natural healing mechanisms.
- Stem cell therapy – Using stem cells, this treatment can promote new tissue growth in damaged joints.
