The National Institutes of Health defines regenerative medicine as the process of creating living, functional tissues to repair or replace tissue or organ function lost due to age, disease, damage or congenital defects. This field holds the promise of regenerating damaged tissues and organs in the body by stimulating previously irreparable organs to heal themselves.
Orthopedic injuries can compromise mobility and diminish quality of life. At Advanced Rheumatology Center, our goal is to help patients enjoy their quality of life by using non-surgical techniques. We offer patients innovative treatment plans that have a proven track record of healing patients and regenerating damaged tissues. For example, Platelet Rich Plasma therapy (PRP) is an offered treatment designed to aid in the healing and regeneration of soft tissues such as tendons and ligaments. This treatment naturally stimulates the wound healing process.
The promising field of Regenerative Medicine is working to restore structure and function of damaged tissues and organs, create solutions for organs that become permanently damaged, and find a way to cure previously untreatable injuries and diseases. This philosophy supports merging cutting edge technology with the body's natural ability to heal itself.
