Regenerative medicine is an umbrella term used to describe a group of cutting-edge treatments that encourage your body’s natural healing process.
This fresh approach to treating pain and healing damaged tissues uses various substances taken from your body or donated, including growth factors and bone marrow aspirate.
Growth factors have the power to promote the generation of new tissue, which means they can repair areas of your body where your healing mechanisms aren’t able to fully restore the tissues.
If you have an injury, or parts of your body are deteriorating from age or overuse, growth factor concentrate injections can boost the production of new cells. You also benefit from a reduction in pain and weakness in the affected area.
Another regenerative medicine treatment Dr. Hadi uses with great success is platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. PRP uses the platelets in your blood to promote tissue growth and better healing.
Regenerative medicine treatments are outpatient procedures that involve getting an injection. The delivery needs to be precise for optimal effect, and Dr. Hadi is highly skilled in administering these injections.
Following your regenerative medicine injection, you can carry on with your day as you would normally. Regenerative medicine injections contain a natural human product with no artificial or pharmaceutical ingredients, which means this treatment is safe and unlikely to cause any side effects.
Researchers and clinicians are continually finding new applications for regenerative medicine. Conditions that most benefit from regenerative medicine include:
Regenerative medicine is effective in treating both acute problems like sports injuries and longer-term or chronic conditions as well.
Only a qualified medical professional like Dr. Hadi can determine if you’re a good candidate for regenerative medicine.
Following a physical exam, review of your medical history, and a discussion of your goals for treatment, he can develop a custom care plan that aligns with your individual needs.
