Orthopedic Q & A

Medical Aesthetics

What is orthopedic regeneration?

If you have an injury, chronic pain, or a condition that affects your ability to move with ease, you may have been told that surgery is your only option. But orthopedic regeneration procedures can address these problems without the need for invasive procedures.

Using stem cells derived from your fat tissue or blood, your physician can redistribute these powerful healing cells to areas of your body that need regeneration and repair.

How does orthopedic regeneration work?

At Medical Aesthetics, the orthopedic regenerative protocol harnesses the anti-inflammatory and healing benefits of stem cells from stromal vascular fraction (SVF), a byproduct that is isolated in fatty tissue extraction, and platelet-rich plasma (PRP), a substance made from isolating components of your blood.

When delivered back into the body, specifically into areas that need repair, the stem cells activate and begin healing damaged tissue.

What conditions can orthopedic regeneration treat?

As a natural way to trigger your body’s regenerative powers, these procedures can address a wide range of orthopedic problems, including:

  • Injuries to the knee, shoulder, ankle, wrist, hip, or spine
  • Damaged muscles, ligaments, tendons, cartilage, bones, or spinal discs
  • Chronic pain due to arthritis

Your treatment plan is customized to meet your specific needs, and it may include a series of stem cell sessions over the course of several weeks.

What are the benefits of orthopedic regeneration?

No matter how severe your injury, orthopedic stem cell therapy can offer incredible benefits.

Each protocol is an outpatient procedure that only requires local anesthesia. Unlike major surgery, orthopedic regeneration protocols require little to no downtime. Most patients can begin gradual stretching exercises or more strenuous movements within a couple of weeks after a procedure, depending on the nature of the injury.

The most exciting thing about orthopedic stem cell treatments is that they harness your body’s natural power to heal itself. As a completely safe and effective procedure, you can avoid the costs and side effects associated with surgery or drugs.
