REGENERATIVE MEDICINE



Regenerative medicine is focused on developing and applying new treatments to heal tissues and organs and restore function loss due to aging, disease, damage or defects

The human body has the natural ability to heal itself in many ways. A cut to the skin repairs itself, broken bones mend and a living-donor’s liver regenerates in a few weeks. Imagine if scientists could capture this naturally occurring ability to heal and apply it to a wide range of conditions.

Heart disease, stroke, diabetes and osteoarthritis are examples of chronic conditions that are long lasting and do not resolve on their own. In many cases, symptoms can be managed with medication or medical devices.

Regenerative Medicine Q & A

What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine is a very new area of medicine focused on the process of replacing or regenerating cells, tissues, and organs to improve function and health. The team at CPI is at the forefront of regenerative medicine and has developed techniques and applications for the use of stem cell therapy in the clinical orthopedic setting.

Stem Cell Therapy in Benbrook, Bedford & Lewisville, Texas

What is stem cell therapy?

Stem cell therapy is a form of regenerative medicine that harnesses your body’s natural healing powers. Your stem cells, which are found in your bone marrow and fat tissue, serve as your body’s raw material for rebuilding and repairing, and have the ability to transform themselves into the specialized cells your body needs to make new bone, muscle, or blood vessels.

The team at CPI combines the stem cells from your bone marrow with an amniotic tissue allograft containing more than 100 different growth factors and 60 times more prostaglandins than other products. This combination creates a powerful healing tool that accelerates your body’s natural healing process by significantly reducing inflammation so that the body can move on to the regeneration phase of healing a lot faster.

What conditions benefit from regenerative medicine?

The team at CPI uses regenerative medicine as a treatment for injuries and degenerative conditions. Some of the conditions that benefit from regenerative medicine include:

  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries
  • Lower back pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Knee pain
  • Arthritis
  • Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Sprain/Tear
  • Baker’s Cyst
  • Bursitis
  • Chondromalacia
  • Enthesopathy
  • Iliotibial Band Syndrome

Am I a good candidate for regenerative medicine?

A specialist at CPI will determine if you’re a good candidate for regenerative medicine after a comprehensive evaluation. Consideration for the cutting-edge treatment may depend on your injury or diseased tissue, medical history, activity, and overall health.

Treatment may help reduce pain, promote healing, and improve function. With stem cell therapy, the specialists offer nonsurgical injections directly into the diseased tissue, as well as stem cell enhanced surgery to promote post-surgical healing

Regenerative medicine offers a number of potential medical possibilities. The team at CPI is at the forefront of its use and has been developing techniques and applications to advance regenerative medicine use in clinical orthopedics.
