Regenerative Medicine Q & A

What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine focuses on restoring a healthy structure and function by rebuilding damaged tissues and organs. This field of health care utilizes your body’s natural ability to heal itself. The team at Northview Medical uses regenerative medicine to facilitate healing and relief for joint pain, including conditions affecting the hip, knee, and shoulder.

What are different types of regenerative medicine?

The family nurse practitioner at Northview Medical uses different types of regenerative medicine techniques, including:

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)

Your blood contains platelets, which are rich in healing growth factors. PRP comes from your own blood, but it has 5-10 times more platelets after processing.

When the family nurse practitioner at Northview Medical re-injects PRP into an area of tissue damage or injury, the flood of growth factors promotes faster healing.

Mesenchymal stem cells

Stem cells have the unique ability to develop into different types of tissue, including cartilage and bone. Mesenchymal stem cells can help your body repair and reconstruct damaged tissue while enhancing your body’s natural healing process.

Where do mesenchymal stem cells come from?

The family nurse practitioner at Northview Medical uses Predictive Biotech human cell tissue products some containing mesenchymal stem cells that come from the umbilical cords of healthy, full-term babies. These products undergo rigorous testing and are processed in the FDA-registered lab at Predictive Biotech in Salt Lake City. They don’t contain any fetal or embryonic tissue.

What should I expect from a regenerative medicine treatment?

First, your provider at Northview Medical carefully reviews your symptoms and medical history and performs a physical exam to make sure you’re a good candidate for regenerative medicine. Then, they develop a personalized treatment plan that may include PRP, mesenchymal stem cell injections, or a combination of both.

Regenerative medicine services involve drawing blood, usually from your arm, and receiving injections in your area of injury or tissue damage. The family nurse practitioner at Northview Medical may also use noninvasive imaging procedures, like an ultrasound, to precisely administer the injection.

The number of injections you need depends on the type and severity of your condition. Regenerative medicine treatments generally aren’t painful and can be done during an office visit.
