Regenerative Medicine Q & A

What is regenerative medicine?

Men and women are living longer than ever. Medical experts, however, haven’t found enough effective ways to treat degenerative conditions and injuries to keep patients pain-free well into their senior years. That's why regenerative medicine with platelet-rich plasma and stem cell therapy have become increasingly beneficial.

As an innovative, game-changing treatment, regenerative medicine involves helping your body heal damaged tissues. Doctors can extract powerful stem cells and growth factors that are responsible for forming new tissues and inject them directly into the injured area.

Because your body forms new tissues, your injured area often heals even stronger than it was in the first place. Patients who have been through countless pain-relieving treatments to no avail report relief from pain after undergoing a custom regenerative medicine treatment.  


How does platelet-rich plasma work?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) begins with a simple blood draw. Dr. Z then deposits your blood into a specialized machine called a centrifuge. This system spins your blood, which forces growth factor cells to separate.

PRP is a powerful, concentrated formula that’s full of healing potential. He gently injects your PRP into your injured area, allowing the regenerative healing cells to get to work right where they’re needed.

Over the following weeks, new cells regenerate, and fresh tissue forms in place of damaged tissue. Not only does this effect help minimize pain in joints, tendons, ligaments, and other soft tissues, it also strengthens the area. This can decrease your risk of future injury or damage.


Will I need more than one regenerative medicine treatment?

Possibly, although it depends on how you respond to your specific treatment and the extent of your injury or condition. Most patients who get stem cell or PRP treatments with Dr. Z notice a dramatic improvement within several weeks of their first treatment.

It’s normal to have some swelling and inflammation near the injection site for one to two weeks after your treatment. After this point, you should notice more strength and less pain. Because regenerative medicine is safe and effective, you can receive another treatment if needed.

Don’t live another day with severe, chronic pain. Schedule an evaluation at Regenerative Institute of Newport Beach over the phone.
