Fix the Problem
Wouldn’t it be great to wake up in the mornings without stiffness and pain in your arthritic joints? Or go for a long walk without worrying about “paying for it” the next day? Now, imagine being able to have like new joints without replacement surgery.
By building on what your body can innately do to restore organ and/or tissue function for patients with serious injuries or chronic disease without the stress, cost, and downtime of surgery, Regenerative Medicine is gaining popularity as the solution to the growing crisis of chronic pain in our active and aging population. Something that can actually "fix" the problem once and for all, not just cover it up.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), is a non-surgical blood platelet treatment that is typically used to treat muscle strains & tears, ligament/tendon tears, minor arthritis, and for joint maintenance. Blood is drawn in the office and spun to extract the PRP to be injected. The concentrated blood platelet injection contains healing growth components that increase the body’s natural ability to repair itself by stimulating the stem cells within the targeted area.
A2M works by binding to the enzymes that degrade the cartilage cells and tissue causing osteoarthritis. Now, a filtration process has been developed that can concentrate the naturally occurring A2M molecule in your blood up to 6X! This process allows therapeutic injections in concentrated dosages that boosts natural healing by reducing the additional deterioration of cartilage and supports tissue growth with naturally occurring compounds from your own blood.
Amniotic Fluid Injection
Amniotic Fluid is a powerful liquid rich in nutrients offered for therapeutic applications. It contains over 200 growth factors, cytokines and other active peptides beneficial for regenerative tissue repair. While 100% Pure Amniotic Fluid contains an impressive array of regenerative factors, there are no live stem cells, dead tissue, or debris in this product, as the FDA does not allow for stem cells to be present in any amniotic based product at this time. The product is intended to enable your body’s ability to repair itself by recruiting your own cells to do the work.
Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix
The next generation of PRP, PRFM uses a a completely closed system and can convert PRP to PRFM with the addition of a precise amount of calcium chloride removing contamination from red and white blood cells. The fibrin matrix serves as a three dimensional scaffold to maintain the platelets at the site of injection, and protects the platelets so their release of growth factors can be sustained over a longer period of time.
Q: What can regenerative medicine be used for?
A: Regenerative medicine may be used for a multitude of conditions including, but not limited to pain management, sports injuries, sciatica, degenerative disc disease, neck and back pain, auto accident injuries, podiatry, wound care, and the list goes on and on.

Q: What is the cost of treatment?
A: The cost for regenerative medicine therapy is based on the procedure and type of product needed. Our staff will sit down with you before your procedure and explain the cost as well as financing options if required.
