Regenerative orthopedics is one name for the new field of medicine that boosts the body’s ability to heal itself without drugs or surgery. Regenerative treatments use a patient’s own repair cells to address orthopedic conditions such as arthritis, and sports medicine injuries including ligament, tendon, and cartilage tears. The concept of the body being able to heal itself is not new. What is new is the latest technology that allows us to concentrate the body’s repair cells at the sites of injury and greatly increase the body’s ability to heal. Regenerative treatment
is based on our understanding that certain tissues in the body have a limited blood supply that slows the repair process and results in incomplete or only partial repair of injuries. By bringing concentrated blood cells to the area with precise injections into damaged tissues, we help the body make more complete repairs and often eliminate the need for surgery.
