Regenerative Medicine

What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine is a nonsurgical approach to treating orthopedic conditions that harnesses the regenerative abilities of your own body. Using stem cells, platelets, and other growth factors that occur naturally in your body, regenerative medicine stimulates tissue healing and regrowth to relieve pain and restore function naturally, without surgery or medication.

How does regenerative medicine work?

When the experts at Carolina Regenerative Medicine perform a regenerative medicine procedure, they collect cells from one part of your body and reintroduce those cells into the site of your injury. There are two basic types of regenerative medicine available at Carolina Regenerative Medicine: platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, and stem cell therapy.

Platelet-rich plasma therapy

The platelets contained in your blood are an essential part of your natural healing process. Platelets contain proteins that help your blood to clot and new cells to grow.

PRP therapy involves drawing some of your blood and spinning it in a centrifuge to isolate the platelets. This concentrated plasma serum, when injected into the site of an injury, reduces inflammation and stimulates the growth of healthy new tissue.

Stem cell therapy

Adult stem cells can self-replicate and differentiate into any kind of specialized cell with a specific function in your body. They are part of the natural, ongoing process of cellular healing and regeneration.

The experts at Carolina Regenerative Medicine harvest adult stem cells from either bone marrow or adipose (fat) tissue. When introduced into the site of your injury, stem cells generate a powerful healing response to reduce inflammation and rebuild connective tissue and other damaged structures.
