Regenerative Therapy Q & A

What is regenerative medicine?

Over the years, your body continuously produces new cells to replace old, damaged, and diseased tissues. Regenerative medicine taps into this natural ability, extracting the cells responsible for rebuilding tissues, 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 mesenchymal tissue cells in regenerative medicine?

Mesenchymal tissue cells create new cells that develop into the tissues needed to repair musculoskeletal injuries, including ligaments, tendons, cartilage, muscle, collagen, and bone. They also promote the growth of new blood vessels.

The mesenchymal tissue cells used by the medical providers at New Medical Center are obtained from Predictive Biotech, a company that performs rigorous research and testing, and provides high-quality mesenchymal tissue cells.

Predictive Biotech’s FDA-compliant mesenchymal tissue cells come from umbilical cord tissues and amniotic fluid that are freely donated by healthy mothers after giving birth. The mesenchymal tissue cells are extracted, screened, approved for medical use, and then cryogenically frozen.

What is the role of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) in regenerative 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 regenerative medicine?

Using mesenchymal tissue cells, 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. Regenerative 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 regenerative medicine include:

  • Lower back
  • Knees
  • Cases of arthritis
  • Shoulders
  • Elbows
  • Wrists
  • Hips 

While regenerative medicine is effective for most patients, it’s important to know that this isn’t an overnight treatment. It takes time for mesenchymal tissue cells and PRP to make new tissues, and each patient’s time to respond is different. At the time of your regenerative medicine treatment, your medical provider explains the expected time to heal based on the severity of your condition.
