Regenerative Medicine Q & A
What is regenerative medicine?
When it comes to solving health issues, modern medicine has discovered ways to bypass the human body in order to repair, remove, or replace damaged tissues. While effective, this invasive approach to healing is not without considerable risk and collateral damage.
With regenerative medicine, the goal, according to the National Institute of Health, is to create “living, functional tissues to repair or replace tissue or organ function lost due to age, disease, damage, or congenital defects.”
What regenerative medicine treatments are offered?
The team at Terry L. Franklin, MD, believes that regenerative medicine holds great promise based on its early successes and they’re proud to be at the forefront of this exciting new treatment. The office offers stem cell therapy to patients who may benefit from the treatment.
Stem cells are one of the body’s greatest marvels. They’re the building blocks from which all other cells are created. These undifferentiated cells have the amazing power to transform into other cells and then multiply indefinitely.
With their stem cell therapy, Dr. Franklin injects stem cells derived from amniotic membranes, which contain a high concentration of powerful stem cells, into your damaged or injured area. These cells then set to work to repair and rebuild your damaged tissue on a cellular level.
How long does regenerative medicine take?
Regenerative medicine is extremely effective because it helps you rebuild your tissue, but this takes time. Depending upon the extent of your tissue damage, you could need a series of stem cell treatments. During the weeks following your treatment, these additional resources go to work and slowly rebuild your tissues.
The team at Terry L. Franklin, MD will be sure to check in with you and adjust your treatments as necessary to meet your needs.
