Regenerative medicine is the cutting-edge area of medicine that focuses on helping your body heal itself, regenerate healthy tissue, and restore normal function within your body. According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), regenerative medicine involves creating living, functional tissue that repairs or replaces diseased, damaged, or defective tissue. It’s a nonsurgical treatment that motivates your body’s own healing response so it can repair itself.
Your body naturally repairs tissue on its own each time you get a cut on your finger or you fracture a bone. Regenerative medicine helps your body heal on a cellular level by stimulating this healing response where it’s needed most. Stimulating your body on a cellular level gives it the potential to close a wound or grow new healthy tissue, including:
During a minimally invasive procedure, your doctor at Revive Medical injects a solution containing a high concentration of growth factors that function at a cellular level. These growth factors stimulate your body’s own healing response so you generate healthy tissue to repair a specific area of your body. Regenerative medicine treatments have the potential to jumpstart the healing process of an injured knee or chronic tendinitis, and several other conditions.
At Revive Medical, your doctor may recommend regenerative medicine treatments to help treat chronic conditions like:
Regenerative medicine can also help reduce inflammation surrounding stiff joints and slow the progression of degenerative conditions like osteoarthritis.
Since regenerative treatments are minimally invasive, they are typically outpatient procedures. There are no incisions, stitches, or risk of blood loss from surgery. Side effects are minimal, if any, including slight soreness at the injection site. Symptoms go away quickly, and there’s minimal downtime.
Over time, as your body heals, you may experience less pain and inflammation, less joint stiffness, and increased mobility in the treated area. Regenerative medicine can be beneficial as part of your comprehensive treatment plan.
