The discipline of regenerative medicine is a game-changer in modern medicine. Regenerative medicine physicians focus on the body’s innate potential to regenerate itself, to heal itself and to cure disease. We view medicine as having three main practice areas: surgery, pharmaceutical medicine and regenerative medicine. Regenerative medicine seeks to heal the body, not medicate symptoms, and many regenerative therapies are capable of delaying, or eliminating altogether the need for surgery.

Stem cells are undifferentiated cells, meaning they haven’t decided what cell to turn into. These cells hold the secret to life. Stem cells both make and maintain our bodies. When a sperm and egg come together, they create the ultimate stem cell. This cell, in turn, undergoes multiple divisions into cells that differentiate to form our bodies and all the organ systems. Once the body is formed, the organs have stem cells that allow the body to repair and regenerate damaged tissue.

Our bodies experience physical damage and are exposed to toxins every day. We all have an innate ability to heal and regenerate damage to our bodies. When stem cells are introduced into the body, the cells have a “homing” characteristic that sends them directly to the areas of inflammation and damage. They release a chemical that stimulates the body’s natural ability to heal. Stem cells decrease inflammation and can modulate the immune system.

Stem cells come from two sources. First, the patient can have their own fat or bone marrow extracted and then injected back into their own body. Secondly, stem cells are harvested from the blood of donated umbilical cord tissue from healthy births.

At Re-New! Regenerative Medicine, we use stem cells for musculoskeletal and orthopedic conditions like hip pain, shoulder pain, post-surgical pain, pain from failed surgeries, arthritis, and we also use them extensively for general regenerative and wellness purposes.

Stem cells can be beneficial for anyone with chronic inflammation or damage. When our bodies are in a chronic state of degeneration or inflammation, such as with osteoarthritis of the knees, we are in a state where the regenerative capabilities of our bodies are overwhelmed by the underlying disease process. This is the type of scenario where stem cells can be most beneficial.
