Regenerative Medicine

Our doctors use Regenerative medicine to restore function and repair damaged tissue. This technique can often delay the need for more invasive treatments like surgery. Our providers are trained experts in Regenerative medicine and provide the following.

Ascent

Ascent is regenerative medicine designed to cushion, lubricate, and reduce inflammation in joints and tendons. It is created from amniotic fluid, which contains natural components that support the growth and development of human bodies. It may put off or prevent the need for surgical intervention. Ascent is easily administered through a simple in-office injection.

Liveyon

An injection of Live stem cells, derived exclusively from donated umbilical cord, into your affected joint to help aide in not only healing injured tissue, but to prevent further damage. May put off or prevent the need for surgical intervention. Speak with your provider about your options today.

MACI

Matrix-induced autologous chondrocyte implantation- Matrix-induced autologous chondrocyte implantation (MACI) is a new procedure to treat the articular cartilage defects of the knee. Articular cartilage is a tissue that covers the surface of the joints and is responsible for pain-free movement of the bones within the joint.

PRP | Platelet-rich plasma

 Platelet-rich plasma – PRP is Platelet-Rich Plasma therapy. PRP is an emerging technology and technique in sports medicine, used to aid in soft tissue recovery. PRP therapy takes about twenty minutes to complete. We begin by collecting a small amount of the patient’s blood, and then placing the blood in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma from the other components of whole blood. Our doctors then inject the concentrated platelets into the site of the injury. The platelets aid in the natural repair of injured tissues, acting as a natural reservoir for growth factors and increasing collagen production, enhancing tendon stem cell proliferation, and tenocyte-related gene and protein expression. PRP activates tenocytes to reproduce quickly and create collagen to repair injuries.

Renu

Renu is regenerative medicine that uses human amniotic tissue and cells injected into injured tissue to provide pain relief and stimulate the body’s natural healing process. This amniotic tissue helps to restore damaged tissue such as cartilage, tendons, and ligaments. The growth factors in the amniotic tissue provide anti-inflammatory, anti-adhesive, and anti-microbial properties to the injured area and may provide quicker healing. Amniotic tissue treatment is also unlikely to be rejected by the body.

Renu cells come from the amniotic membrane and fluid of donated placentas following normal childbirth. With the mother’s consent, the amnion is removed and harvested from the placenta of pre-screened and tested donors. It is then sterilely processed and undergoes further rigorous testing to assure safety and effectiveness.
