What is Innovative medicine?
Over the years, your body continuously produces new cells to replace old, damaged, and diseased tissues. Innovative medicine taps into this natural ability, utilizing the tissues responsible for Cushioning, lubrication and repair, then precisely injecting them into injured areas of your body. From there, the cells go to work, promoting new cell growth that helps you heal and relieve pain.
What is the role of human cells and tissue products (HCT/P's) in innovative medicine
HCT/P’s are used to cushion, lubricate, support and help repair damaged joints.
The HCTP’s used by the Medical providers at NMC come from umbilical cord tissues and amniotic fluid that are freely donated by healthy mothers after giving birth. These tissues are extracted, screened, approved for medical use, and then cryogenically frozen.
What is the role of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) in innovative medicine?
Platelets are natural components of your blood. Whenever you’re injured, platelets quickly travel to the site and release proteins called growth factors that trigger the healing process.
PRP consists of a concentrated number of platelets in a small amount of plasma. New Medical Center produces the PRP in-office using a sample of your blood. When injected, the platelets in PRP may:
- Regulate inflammation
- Recruit tissue cells to regenerate tissues
- Prevent the degeneration of healthy tissues
- Produce the matrix needed for new tissue development
- Through all these actions, PRP speeds up your natural healing process.
How can I benefit from innovative medicine?
Using HCT/P’s, PRP, or both at the same time, New Medical Center practitioners can accelerate healing and relieve pain in areas of injury or with degenerative disease. Innovative medicine is especially beneficial when a severe injury, your age, or a poor blood supply inhibit your body’s healing ability. Common areas the New Medical Center team utilizes innovative medicine include:
- Lower back
- Cases of arthritis
While innovative medicine is effective for most patients, it’s important to know that this isn’t an overnight treatment. It takes time for HCT/P’s and PRP to do their job, and each patient’s time to respond is different. At the time of your innovative medicine treatment, your medical provider will explain the expected time to heal based on the severity of your condition.
