REGENERATIVE MEDICINE SERVICES
Regenerative medicine, also called stem cell therapy or cellular therapy is the study and medical practice of using stem cells and utilizing their potential help restore structure and function to damaged tissues and organs in the body. Cellular medicine works by harnessing the body’s innate ability to grow and heal itself without all the drugs and invasive procedures that have become so prevalent in medicine today. It is effective because it works on the cellular level by stimulating gene expression, enhancing cellular metabolism, improving oxygen utilization, increases cellular detoxification including up-regulating hundreds of antioxidant’s response elements.
These cellular changes, and the resulting repair and regeneration of injured tissue leads to organ and consequently total-body wellness.
“Cellular medicine does more than treat symptoms, it restores the body’s ability to heal itself.”
At the Regenerative Medical Center of Delaware, we offer four different types of cellular therapies to aid in the repair of joint pain and injury and muscle degeneration.
Stem Cell Therapy:
Cellular therapy involves using innovative treatments to help avoid or reduce the need for surgery. Stem cells have the potential to treat a wide range of diseases and injuries, and based on how they are obtained and where they originate from, different stem cells have different capabilities. Stem cells are able to differentiate into specialized cell types to help heal inflammation in the body and repair damaged tissues.
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)
Platelet rich plasma is a medical treatment that uses a concentration of platelet cells taken from the patient’s own blood. Blood platelets have growth factors that are believed to help in healing of chronic injuries that can lead to pain and inflammation. By injecting platelet rich plasma into areas of an injury, the procedure uses the patient’s own body’s ability to help heal these chronic conditions.
Amniotic derived stem cells (ASCs) – also called amnion or amniotic fluid– are stem cells derived from donated amniotic fluid and tissue. They have a powerful and unique ability to self-renew, generating new healthy cells to replace diseased cells in the body. Amniotic stem cells are collected without harming embryos by extracting fluid from the amniotic sac by an amniocentesis.
Exosomes are showing exciting promise – they are demonstrating great ability to provide therapy benefits. Exosomes are extracellular vesicles – or small structures within a cell – released from cells in response to injuries. Research is showing that exosomes play a key role in coagulation – when blood changes from a liquid to a gel, forming a clot. One of the most promising uses of exosomes within Orthopaedics involves rheumatoid arthritis (RA), an autoimmune disorder in which inflammation leads to pain and degradation of joints.
