Invasive Procedures Can Cost You More Than You Think

Mainstream medical treatment leads most patients to invasive joint replacement surgery. There are more than 1 million total joint replacements performed in the United States annually [1], [2]. This number is expected to increase to nearly 4 million by 2030 [3].

Medications prescribed to help with pain only cover up symptoms, allow continued wear and tear to the joint(s), and worse, do not get to the root cause of the problem. Surgeries leave scar tissue behind which limits the mobility of a joint and prevents nutrition from getting into the joint space. This leads to deterioration of the cartilage and when the cartilage deteriorates to the level of compromising the joint space, joint replacement surgery is the inevitable next step.

When applied to joints, regenerative medicine treatments show great promise for combatting the effects of osteoarthritis and helping many older patients stay active without joint pain. The reason typical medical treatment cycle ends in invasive procedures is because medication and surgery do not help the body repair damaged tissue. They do not help build the body back up, but only make it more comfortable while the joint continues to deteriorate. Fortunately, regenerative medicine is offering exciting new options for patients who prefer to accelerate the healing process and avoid invasive surgery.

Joint Replacement Surgery – Is It for Everyone?

Joint replacement surgery is an advanced medical science that helps thousands of patients get out of pain and continue to function, even after a complete joint failure. However, most patients and physicians would prefer to avoid the surgery until necessary. The procedure is extremely invasive and has high chances of complications – in particular, the risk from anesthesia, infections, and an unsuccessful outcome. Of course, some patients are too frail or have too many co-morbidities to safely have joint replacement surgery and are left with no options.

The Regenerative Medicine Revolution

According to a review by the Mayo Clinic, “Regenerative technologies strive to promote, augment, and reestablish native repair processes...Multimodal regenerative approaches incorporate the transplant of healthy tissues into damaged environments, prompt the body to enact a regenerative response in damaged tissues, and use tissue engineering to manufacture new tissue. Stem cells and their products have a unique aptitude to form specialized tissues and promote repair signaling, providing active ingredients of regenerative regimens.”

When applied to the joints, regenerative medicine treatments show great promise for combatting the effects of osteoarthritis and helping many older patients stay active without joint pain.

The reason typical medical treatment cycle ends in invasive procedures is because medication and surgery do not help the body repair damaged tissue. They do not help build the body back up, but only make it more comfortable while the joint continues to deteriorate. Fortunately, regenerative medicine is offering exciting new options for patients who prefer to acclerate the healing process and avoid invasive surgery.

New Innovative Approaches to Accelerating Healing

Regenerative Healthcare: Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is a regenerative medicine procedure that involves utilizing the liquid portion of your blood to accelerate the healing process. The procedure itself is accomplished by having tube(s) of blood collected from the patient that is spun down at a precise speed in a centrifuge that allows for the separation of the plasma from the red blood cells that concentrates them into an injection for healing. Plasma is the liquid portion of your blood that is composed of protein, water, and thrombocytes that aid in blood clotting and healing.

When made into an injection, PRP can be used to alleviate joint and muscle pain, tendinitis, trigger points, sprains, strains, and conditions including osteoarthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and even hair loss.

The platelets release growth factors into the muscle, tendon, joint, and other target tissue, encouraging cell repair and renewal. The theory is that with PRP injections, the platelet-rich plasma triggers and encourages the body’s natural healing process. This is why this treatment falls under the category of regenerative medicine. PRP injections are an excellent choice for those looking for minimally invasive recovery from the damaging effects of chronic inflammation and arthritis.
Regenerative Healthcare: Human Tissue Allograft Treatments
Regenerative Healthcare offers incredible advantages in the healing process by providing the body with the necessary materials required to heal, including growth factors, Hyaluronic Acid, amino acids, cytokines, etc. These therapies help boost the body’s natural healing processes to reduce inflammation, dysfunction, and pain caused by conditions such as Tennis Elbow, Golfer’s Elbow, arthritis, and other soft tissue-related conditions contributing to pain.

Natural and Non-Invasive

Regenerative medicine consists of human tissue cellular allografts taken from the placenta and umbilical cord after a live, healthy birth. These tissues are donated by mothers who elect to be in the program. The donated tissue is tested in an FDA registered lab, stored cryogenically until practices such as ours order the tissue.

When injected into a damaged or deteriorated joint, the allograft stimulates the body to repair the damaged tissue resulting in a reduction of inflammation, improved cushioning, and improved function.

Safe Alternative

Human tissue allograft treatments are natural and carry no chance of rejection given they are “immune privileged.” This means they have no immune cells and bear no risk to the patient. In most cases, there is also little to no down time and other than a few modifications, most patients go right back to their typical daily life. Regenerative medicine works great for acute and chronic conditions in any joint or associated soft tissue.
