Frequently Asked Questions

Regenerative medicine is a branch of medical science that focuses on utilizing the body's own natural healing mechanisms to promote tissue repair and regeneration. It offers innovative treatments like stem cell therapy and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections, which can help accelerate healing, reduce pain, and improve overall function.

Regenerative medicine can effectively treat a wide range of conditions, including sports injuries, joint pain (such as knee, hip, and shoulder pain), osteoarthritis, tendonitis, ligament tears, and chronic pain in various areas of the body. It can also aid in promoting recovery from surgical procedures.

Orthopedic injections refer to the administration of medications or substances directly into the affected area of the musculoskeletal system, such as joints, tendons, or ligaments, to alleviate pain and promote healing.

Orthopedic injections work by delivering medication or substances directly to the affected area, bypassing the digestive system. They can provide pain relief, reduce inflammation, promote tissue regeneration, and improve joint function.

Common types of orthopedic injections include hyaluronic acid injections, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections, and stem cell injections. The choice of injection depends on the specific condition being treated and the individual's needs.

Stem cell injections involve the use of stem cells, which are undifferentiated cells capable of differentiating into various cell types. These injections aim to stimulate tissue repair and regeneration, promoting healing and reducing pain in orthopedic conditions.

Stem cell injections are typically performed as an outpatient procedure. The stem cells may be obtained from the patient's own body (autologous stem cells) or from a donor (allogeneic stem cells). The cells are then injected into the affected area using imaging guidance, such as ultrasound or fluoroscopy, to ensure precise placement.

Orthopedic injections and stem cells can be used to treat a range of conditions, including osteoarthritis, tendonitis, ligament injuries, cartilage defects, and some spinal conditions. They are often considered when conservative treatments like physical therapy or oral medications have been ineffective.

Orthopedic injections and stem cell treatments are generally considered safe. There are minimal side-effects when orthopedic or sports medicine injections.

The time it takes to see results can vary depending on the individual and the specific condition being treated. Some patients may experience immediate relief, while others may require several weeks or months to notice improvement. We typically like to see a reduction of symptoms within the first 6 weeks at the first follow-up appointment
