Regenerative Medicine

Our Board Certified pain management doctor in Dallas offers stem cell therapies including bone marrow derived treatment and platelet rich plasma (PRP).

Regenerative Medicine Therapy

Our bodies have the innate response to heal and defend itself from injury and disease. Regenerative medicine is a game-changing area of medicine with the potential to restore the structure and function of damaged tissues by harnessing the body’s natural power in an accelerated and clinically relevant way.

Regeneration therapy involves delivery of stem cells or cellular growth factors to injured joints and tissue in order to promote healing. Our clinic offers cutting-edge regenerative medicine therapies that are clinically proven to be safe and effective, including: platelet-rich plasma (PRP), biologics therapy, and bone marrow autograft.

Our regenerative therapies are non-surgical, so most procedures are done in your doctor’s office with local anesthetic. Regenerative medicine has been in clinical use since the 1980s and has demonstrated good results. Talk to your doctor about the optimum treatment for your particular pain condition.

Why Choose Regenerative Medicine?

Regenerative medicine is a relatively new field in medicine that focuses on repairing and replacing damaged tissues and organs due to the natural process of aging, disease, or trauma. This is a game-changing area of medicine – harnessing the natural power and ability to heal in an accelerated and clinically relevant manner. Regeneration therapy involves the use of biological material that can be directly delivered to injured tissues to promote healing.

Traditional pain management typically involves medication management, diagnostic and therapeutic blocks, neuromodulation, and injectable anti-inflammatories, e.g. cortisone. These solutions have a role and place but are not always ideal or the best long-term choice due to unwanted side effects, invasiveness, and extra-care that is required. Additionally, the opioid epidemic has brought an awareness to the public of the harms and negative consequences of high dose pain medication use and abuse. Most of the traditional pain management options provide short-lived or Band-Aid like fixes that do not address the root cause.

Regenerative medicine solutions, such as platelet rich plasma (PRP) and bone marrow are delivered to the target areas using the same kinds of needles and x-ray equipment that would be used for traditional pain management solutions, e.g. epidural steroid injection. However, the biologic material helps to heal the body at the cellular level – root cause. This is the really the distinguishing factor between the two disciplines.

Our use and focus of biological material is for orthopedic and musculoskeletal issues, such as osteoarthritis of the knee, hip, and shoulder. PRP and bone marrow can be helpful for tennis elbow, rotator cuff injuries, plantar fasciitis, and spine conditions, such as, degenerative disc and facet disease.

Designed to regenerate, rebuild, and repair damaged tissues that reduce pain and fix injuries, regenerative injections are used in joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. The injections may involve platelet-rich plasma (PRP), stem cells, or both. These products are derived from the patient’s own body and repair structures to heal the root problem while reducing inflammation and pain.

Stem cell therapy is a hot topic with much controversy. Stem cells are present in bone marrow and therefore only part of the picture. These cells operate more like a head football coach by coordinating and directing the healing process. Our personal interest is in the science that involves the interaction between stem cells and exosomes, which are tiny storage vesicles that transport specialized cargo (micro and messenger RNA, peptides, growth factors, and cytokines) to damaged tissues – these molecules act like the players on the field winning the game.

Our usual patient is one that has tried and failed conservative measures – chiropractic treatment, physical therapy, massage therapy, acupuncture, home exercise programs and the myriad of medications and traditional pain management options. Most of our patients are in that space between failure of conventional treatment to resolve the problem and wanting to avoid surgery.

Greatly reduce the need for surgery by treating injured tissues before the damage progresses any further. Imagine alleviating your knee pain without having to get a knee replacement. The goal of regenerative therapy is to heal injured tissue and not just mask the pain. Regenerative therapy has helped many professionals and athletes heal rapidly from an injury and return to full activity. Regenerative therapy procedures are ideal for individuals who face ailments such as back pain, knee arthritis, tendonitis, ligament injuries, arthritis of the knee, hip or shoulder rotator cuff tears, tennis elbow, hip bursitis, patellar tendon injury, plantar fasciitis, and Achilles tendon injuries.

The cost of regenerative therapy procedures depend on your specific treatment, although some options may be covered by your insurance. We also accept HSA / FSA payments for regenerative medicine treatments. For more information, call (972) 380 0000 to receive pricing information for your specific regenerative therapy plan.

Although recovery times vary, most patients can expect to see improvement in their pain and mobility within 4 to 6 weeks after treatment. Patients will continue to see improvement in pain and mobility for up to 12 months. Regenerative therapy patients experience rapid recovery and are back to their daily activities very quickly.

Bone marrow and blood plasma are not manufactured in a laboratory. The biological material is from your own body. This means that there is no rejection, no allergic reactions, and does not negatively impact the endocrine system. In fact, current research indicates that cellular therapy has the potential to generate a positive effect on the organs involved in the endocrine system. Long-term use of cortisone is known to have many potential negative effects, such as increasing blood sugar glucose, obesity, osteoporosis, skin changes, and loss of the body’s ability to produce natural cortisone from the adrenal glands. These things do not happen with bone marrow and PRP. Regenerative medicine solutions work well with nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide and nitrous oxide oral supplementation – both help to augment the activation of tissue resident stem cells (these are stem cells that are present throughout the body in various organs).

No surgery, no medication, and no hospital stays are just a few of the reasons why thousands have chosen regenerative therapies over traditional methods. Most procedures are performed in less than an hour with very little post recovery. Many patients are able to return to work the next day. Because most regenerative procedures use your own body’s platelets and cells for healing, it’s safe and natural!
