It’s called Regenerative Medicine; what medicines are used?

     Regenerative medicine products and therapies are based around applying stem cells to injured or damaged areas of the body. Stem cells are not medicines and are not produced by pharmaceutical companies. They are cells taken from another human’s body. This is actually called an allograft, it’s a type of transplant. There are other regenerative medicine products that don’t contain live cells (or even any stem cells) but are still a human tissue allograft; this is amniotic fluid technology. When injected into an injured area, amniotic fluid has healing properties and help recruit the patient’s own stem cells to stimulate healing of damaged tissue.

     So, despite having the term ‘medicine’ in its name, regenerative medicine does not use any actual medicine. It is grouped into medicine however because the treatments are medical in nature and require trained medical personnel to administer. The regenerative medicine therapies we use at Solutions Integrated Medicine involve minimally invasive injections to injured or damaged joints and soft tissue injured areas to administer stem cell and amniotic allograft technology. All the treatments and therapies we offer our patients are completely safe and have virtually no adverse effects or even any down time.
