From the young model to the aging retiree, from the elite athlete to the weekend warrior, to the immune-compromised patient and the patient with other comorbidities, clinicians continue to search for ways to control pain and accelerate the healing process. Utilizing various regenerative medicine therapies has proven to have many profound benefits; not the least of which includes overall superior outcomes.

Dawning on the horizon of medical advancements, regenerative medicine therapies hold the potent healing potential whose benefits have the power to span disciplines as diverse as hair restoration and orthopedics. These therapies harness the power and versatility of the human body to regenerate damaged skin, accelerate healing, reactivate hair follicles, heal wounds, and alleviate pain.

Many people have heard of the usefulness of stem cell therapy but there’s so much more to regenerative medicine than just stem cells whose outcome is very dependent on the age of the patient they are being harvested from. (Figure 1) Equally important are components such as collagens, cytokines, proteins, growth factors… the list goes on.

Regenerative Medicine is a form of tissue engineering and molecular biology which deals with the “process of replacing, engineering or regenerating human cells, tissues or organs to restore or establish normal function”. When injured or invaded by disease, our bodies have the innate response to heal and defend. Harnessing and enhancing the body’s own regenerative powers is a medical practice at the frontier of present-day advancements whose properties can seem miraculous to those who benefit from them. The miracle, however, is the result of scientific exploration that has begun to unlock and utilize the body’s extraordinary ability to heal and restore itself.

Cells are the building blocks of tissue, and tissues are the basic unit of function in the body. Generally, groups of cells make and secrete their own support structures, called extra- cellular matrix. This matrix, or scaffold, does more than just support the cells; it also acts as a relay station for various signaling molecules. Thus, cells receive messages from many sources that become available from the local environment.

Each signal can start a chain of responses that determine what happens to the cell. Through medical technology we can now understand how individual cells respond to signals, interact with their environment, and organize themselves into a healing process. Scaffolds are created utilizing various Regenerative Medicine therapies allowing the tissue to “self- assemble.”

Many patients have turned to Regenerative Medicine for a treatment option that can help them recover from sports injuries, alleviate chronic pain, and even combat the natural effects of aging and the impact on their aesthetic appearance.

We know that choosing what type of regenerative medicine therapy works for you is confusing. Our goal is to provide you with the information needed when deciding if regenerative medicine is right for you. It is important to make an educated investment in your health care. Live your life the way it was meant to be lived.
