When adult regenerative cells are injected into an injured or diseased area of your body, they promote healing by generating new cells. The physicians at Bluetail Medical Group have years of experience using regenerative cellular therapy to treat orthopedic injuries and degenerative diseases. To find out if you’re a good candidate for regenerative cellular therapy, book an appointment online, call the office in Naples, Florida, or contact one of their locations in Chesterfield and Columbia, Missouri.
Regenerative Cells are undifferentiated cells that can self-replicate then develop into many different types of cells and tissue. Adult regenerative cells continuously divide and grow into new cells to repair and replace tissues that are old, damaged, or diseased.
There are different types of adult regenerative cells. Some produce one specific tissue, while others can replicate several types of cells. Regenerative cellular therapy utilizes adult regenerative cells that can repair multiple tissues.
When a concentrated amount of regenerative cells are injected directly into damaged tissues, the regenerative cells regenerate and repair the damage by producing the new cells.
The regenerative cells used for your injection come from your own body. One type, mesenchymal cells, are particularly effective for orthopedic conditions and sports injuries because they regenerate cells common in musculoskeletal tissues, including bones, tendons, cartilage, and ligaments.
Your doctor at Bluetail Medical Group extracts adult mesenchymal regenerative cells from bone marrow in your hip. After processing and concentrating the regenerative cells, your doctor injects them into the damaged tissues using ultrasound-guided imaging.
Regenerative cellular therapy has successfully treated many orthopedic conditions, including tendon, ligament, and muscle injuries, joint damage, and nerve pain.
These are just a few examples of health problems treated with regenerative cellular therapy at Bluetail Medical Group:
As experts in regenerative medicine, the team at Bluetail Medical Group are available to talk with you about whether regenerative cellular therapy may help your condition.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) uses growth factors naturally found in your blood platelets to promote healing, trigger new tissue growth, and enhance the activity of regenerative cells. When your injury or disease is extensive, or you have degenerative joint disease, a tendon tear, or osteoarthritis, your doctor may add PRP to your regenerative cell injection.
Like regenerative cellular therapy, PRP is made on-site from your blood. Your doctor draws a blood sample and processes it in a centrifuge that separates platelets from other blood components. This concentrated sample of platelets can be combined with your regenerative cell injection for accelerated healing.
If you’re not getting the results you want from your current treatment, it may be time to consider regenerative cellular therapy. Call Bluetail Medical Group or book an appointment online.
